Gay marriage

There are 61395 comments on the Los Angeles Times story from Mar 28, 2013, titled Gay marriage. In it, Los Angeles Times reports that:

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering two controversial cases involving whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry: Proposition 8, California's 2008 ban on gay marriage, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which since 1996 has defined marriage for federal purposes as a union between a man and a woman.

Monogamy, as in one wife, or husband at a time, not sexual fidelity, which doesn't appear to be that popular among gay men.
So why would it bother you, now that some states have rejected conjugality as the sole basis of legal marriage, if another state rejected monogamy, as well?
Society values monogamy & sexual fidelity in marriage, even if many- gay and straight- fail to live up to that ideal.

There is no evidence gay men are any less faithful to their partners than straight men are to their partners. You're merely perpetuating a stereotype, which is typical of the anti-gays.

No state has rejected conjugality as the sole basis of legal marriage; they all still limit marriage to 2 people.

I don't support polygamy because it's primarily a religious cult institution with a history of harming women & children. I don't think the risk is worth it.

Now that "Rose" has been exposed as an obese, diabetic ex-drag queen it seems he wants us to know more about what he thinks about all day:
In the comment above Rose writes, "fundies don't wipe their rears."
In the one before it, "More straights have anal sex than gays."
And in the one before that, "I wipe my butt with the buybull, but its pages are already full of feces."
And here's a treat: Earlier someone emailed me this photo of "Rose"

I was going to play nice and send a Christmas card to your hovel at Shithole Central but was unable to find your listing....'Lou Zer'.

So Lou...if you want it let me know what space your mobile home is on and sift through you 'late payment' notices for the card later to make sure it doesn't get lost.

I've learned from the best Sheepie, and you're the best!
And you're still stuck on stupid, just like most anti-gays.

And that's part of the reason you anti-gays keep losing in court after court and state after state.

Keep up the good work.

Yeah. I hear ya. The last time he gave me what was supposed to be his address, it was the address to the Livermore VD Clinic. I drove all the way there then went inside and asked for him and they wouldn't tell me where he lived. Bill was too scared to give his address. So if he gives you an address it's probably fake.
I wanna to go over his house and show him who's his daddy once and for all! But he's too scared to show up.
At least it was convenient for you to drive to the VD clinic as you mentioned.

Hell...you can kill two birds with one stone that way.

Surprised you got a form of VD.

Even some toothless crab infested meth addled piano toothed nymphomaniac of a hooker is going to ask for an extra handful of twenties, for you to wear three sets of Trojans and a bottle of Jim Beam before the party starts to sleep with your fool self.

BAH HAH HAH!!!!

And here you are. Getting your badass self pumped up to play tough guy in the internet again.

It matters we allow all Americans equal footing as the Constitution lays out.
We, do, all men and all women. Why should some men, and some women be treated unequally? Why shouldn't they be treated THE SAME as any other man or woman?
Whaaaa??? Your stupid pappa still pissed we didn't vote out blacks rights in the 60's too???
Oooooooooo.....great analogy....did u make that one up all by yourself?

Yet society tunes in to watch "Sister Wives", "My Five Wives", etc.

What evidence is needed other than their own admission?
You're merely perpetuating a stereotype, which is typical of the anti-gays.
I guess that makes Dan Savage, and Andrew Sullivan anti gay, gays. Fascinating.
No state has rejected conjugality as the sole basis of legal marriage; they all still limit marriage to 2 people.
Several states have rejected conjugality, opposite sex, as the sole legal basis for the marital union.
I don't support polygamy because it's primarily a religious cult institution with a history of harming women & children.
So you're a polyaphobe, and anti religion. Finally an honest admission!
I don't think the risk is worth it.
Yet it exists, its the subject of at least two reality shows, and has, for all practical purposes, been decriminalized in Utah, by a federal judge. I wonder if he's a reflection of society.

Learn from history my son.

Several states in the 50's were resisting inter-racial marriages.

Guess what happened???

More likely, most will grow wiser with age and change their opinions.

Obama ran on marriage as one man and one woman in 2008.

Yes you old timers are insane. As your age group dies off FREEDOM AND EQUALITY will be new rule...BYE.

When did stating facts, truth, and the law, and defending the Constitution make one an idiot?
