Gay marriage

Full story: Los Angeles Times

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.

I asked if there was nothing wrong with being gay why do gays push so hard for acceptance and particularly gay marriage?
Nobody is in favor or advocates beating people up
Really? Fundies do it all the time:

That is downright disturbing
There is a lot of hate in you my friend.
I would strongly suggest you reach to the right and hit the "Nurse Call" button. When she gets to your room ask her to up your meds immediately and change your bed sheets.
Instead of responding like Comrade Sheepie with insults, why not address my points? Why for instance, do you believe you have a right to comment on another persons union with another consenting adult for starters.

Yes, please tell comrade sheepie.
Sheepie has a rainbow pass. Get out of jail free. He's exempt from "Rose's Law".

Rose's dopey "Law"- Morons with no real argument (except Sheepie) scream "what about the children!?"

It's the rainbow exemption to Rose's Law.

It's still the case now. As long as a man and a woman meet the requirements, the get the license.

How about the state take steps to reduce the divorce rate?
<quoted text>
Sure it does, it's beneficial for the state and society. Not to mention the cost of family breakdown.
Neither my wife nor I happen to be a male, YET we still were issued a marriage license almost 6 years ago.......so, again your viewpoint is incorrect!!!

In order to have the State reduce the divorce rate....they would have to be WILLING to ban divorces and that would infringe on the couple's right to seek resolution to their grievances.....I'm certain someone ISN'T going to feel that's okay!!!

Sorry, but you DON'T get to tell others what is right for them and you DON'T get make decisions for others either!!!

I suggest you consult an Attorney. Once you open the floodgates and change a marriage law everybody can ride the wave. There will now be a sound legal argument for incest marriage, polygamy.
You are destroying the bedrock of our society and you don't even know it or even care.
You do realize the same things were said about interracial marriage before Loving v VA.(Notice I'm not arguing for not against either incest marriage nor polygamy. Just pointing out the same kind of stuff was said.)
Hey, fundies were against interracial marriage, too. They said god was against it. They quoted Genesis 1:4 to "prove" it.

You homophobes might understand this simple fact intellectually, but you just don't really seem to "get" that AIDS is caused by a virus, and not by homosexuality.
Homophobes love to twist things to get a rise out of people. Of course they know it is a virus but it helps them justify their homophobia to claim it comes from two men touching each other. They even hope someone will read their "Anne Coulter" level assertions and believe them that they are true. There is something very republican about doing that.

Exactly yet he whines like everyone would form polygamist unions the minute it became legal. Just like incest, should it become legal how many are going to do it? Maybe a few Jerry Springer fans but that is about all. I wish the government would take a good look at these authoritarians and ask themselves if they really need to be in the business of "educating" America's children. Comrade Sheepie is a perfect example of how government "education" doesn't educate.
I read a touching true story about two young people who met for the first time in their twenties. They dated and fell in love over the next few years, married had a baby and were very happy. Quite by accident they found out they were brother and sister. It devastated them, they split up eventually and the child was raised by his mother alone. Tragedy. And who is the bad guy? Attitudes like Sheepie.

WRONG! You said a consenting adult is anyone aged 13 and over. I said consenting adults which for me is age 18 but I believe should be lowered to age 16 and then age 14.
YOU are the one screaming age 13, age 13 age 13 squawk, squawk.
I know right? Sheepie is downright CREEPY with his 13 year old bride schtick. Makes my skin crawl to think about sex with children. And Sheepie just keeps bringing it up whatever chance he gets. YUCK.

Well, I've seen both sides. They're all criminals. I don't count that as mistakes. When nobody is willing to be the fall guy, they'll start cooking up "final solutions" but they won't ever give up their own perks.
Exactly. Criminals and con-artists of the worst sort. I love how they try to keep us confused about the difference between the crony capitalism they engage in and real Capitalism that makes America work.

""""Back in February, comedian and activist Roseanne Barr officially announced that she was seeking the Green Party nomination for president, and since then she's pulled no punches about her thoughts on the two major parties.On her campaign site, she writes, "Americans have voted for the lesser of two evils in the past elections, it has not gotten us anywhere." She's also separately referred to both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama as empty suits.

On Sunday, she took aim at another Washington target, former House speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying via Twitter, "Pelosi is a criminal too, an insider trader with VISA, she needs to go,vote her out!!"

The statement refers to a story broken by CBS' 60 Minutes in November of 2011, detailing how congressional officials have the ability to legally trade stocks based on nonpublic information obtained during the course of their jobs. In Pelosi's case, some claimed the then-speaker was unduly influenced by VISA at the same time that legislation limiting credit card swipe fees was before the House. The legislation eventually passed, and in April of 2012 the STOCK Act, which closed the insider trading loophole for congressional officials was signed into law. Nevertheless, for Barr and others who believe the two-party system is irreversibly broken, the appearance of impropriety in the case is reason enough to vote Pelosi and anyone else who benefitted from the overturned rule out of office."""

Kimare is a dingaling. Why would you even try to debate him? The obvious conservative lie is that marriage is about raising children. The unspoken truth is that they want tax breaks for marriage as a reward for obeying the Church. Gays don't qualify.
I don't have time for your hat dance. That's what the debate really is. You won't get ka-ka unless they are afraid that the only way to keep their perks is to give in to you.

If you were lucky enough to knock up your girlfriend with twins, you could have three spouses in one! One or two might be husbands though (bummer!)...Maybe Sheepie will favor making marriage wait until after an ultrasound determines sex.

X-Breath aka Aida Lott aka Mona Lott aka Frankie's Pudenda aka a hundred other dopey sock puppets is a particularly nasty little piece of work from over in Joisey.

When I was growing up in Brooklyn in the fifties and the cops caught us with something illegal like say weed, they'd ask where we got it. We said "over in Joisey". That always satisfied them that we were telling the truth. That always amuses me. They'd dump the weed on the ground grind it in with their jackboots and say "Stay out a Joisey kid, don't lemme catch you again". Next time they'd say "told ya to stay outta joisey kid, and then give us a mild beating out behind the dumpster. No criminal record, jail, Miranda, lawyers bla bla bla. I drank with the same cop who once did that when I was in my sisties and he his fifties. Thanked him. He bought me a few, said I made him proud.

Ah, Good times!

The 14th Amendment doesn't define marriage at all.
So what's your point?
Pietro Armando wrote:
But not, in a same gender combination, to the state and society at large.
The 14th Amendment says that all persons in a state's jurisdiction should get equal protection of the laws.
It doesn't say, "Except for marriage laws".
