There are 61393 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.

Ohhhhh....you silly ignorant fool you......"Gay" is also "English vernacular" for happy and merry, lame
May words have multiple meanings, stupid (swipe Peter. Most people are intelligent enough to figure out the specific meaning intended from context. But you've proven again and again that your vocabulary is barely grade school level and so are baffled by that concept.
Pietro Armando wrote:
and at one time it also referenced a womanizing man, and a female prostitute. A "gay house" was a brothel.
Words evolve, unlike you. Some meanings become archaic and new ones take their place.
Pietro Armando wrote:
Oh the irony...a gay man was once a womanizer, and now he's a man who thinks women are icky!
Just like your name is also slang for male genitalia, which is appropriate since you're a dick on so many levels.
Pietro Armando wrote:
[trimmed for space and emphasis]
Here's a little history lesson for ya:
"...The encyclopedia entries suggested directly or implicitly that same-sex eroticism was a naturally occurring if uncommon phenomenon that affected a small percentage of the general population....
Researchers study and add to the body of human knowledge all the time, stupid Peter. Just because our understanding of sexual orientation as an innate characteristic of humans only dates back to the 19th century doesn't mean it hasn't always been an innate human characteristic. After all, our knowledge of quantum physics dates from only the 20th century but that doesn't mean it hasn't always existed.
Pietro Armando wrote:
....yet you seem fixed on the 19th century "discovery" of "homosexuality".
Actually, that would be YOU. You're the one who insisted homosexuals didn't exist prior to the 19th century when history tells us otherwise.
Pietro Armando wrote:
Strange that no one thought to quantify, for lack of a better word at the moment, same sex sexual behavior/attraction before the Germans.
Because bigoted *sswipes like you were too busy punishing and persecuting anyone that displayed such behavior.

One can't steal what is fundamentally theirs as a US citizen and human being. Marriage is a fundamental right of all humans and you neither own or get to dictate who may exercise that right.

Denial from the mentally ill. Nobody is "shoving" heterosexuality down your throats. It is simply how sexual reproduction occurs. Accept that or don't. The liberals gladly deny that, which only shows that they don't have any kind of a plan. Or more precisely, they don't have a plan that works, so they are just going with a plan that they can profit from.

Welcome to western civilization! Not really the happening place that they think they are. It's going to take a bit more than barking when you hear the whistle blow.

Neither or you are entitled to anything. It should be taken away from you abruptly to remind you just how far you've both fallen from being contributing members of society. Still, I don't want to reward the rich with more tax breaks so I may be inclined to put first things first.

Many learned judges disagree with you Cletus. Your inbreeding is showing.
You're wasting time by bringing up judges. They are neither learned nor are they carrying out the will of the law or the people. They are for-profit political hacks who come from the aristocracy. They are witch doctors whose only purpose is to keep a semblance of order while helping to enforce a status-quo that has existed for the last 30 years or so since the aristocracy first usurped power.

Before them, the liberal aristocracy did much to reduce the order of things. They were spying on Americans, propagandizing and engaging in for-profit social engineering programs long before political correctness turned Washington into a witch hunting ground. All we did was allow the idiot masses without a plan to ruin democracy so that the conservative aristocracy could rule from their places of anonymity. The military/industrial complex has been set free so that we could divvy out money to fudge packers for their political loyalty.

My only question is: with the next war about to occur,(I give it about one year tops!) and the next induced recession coming right around that bend, I wonder how much the gubbermint will enforce "equality" on the front lines? Or will they give the gays desk jobs and kick all the POS family men to the front lines where they can get their worthless butts shot, like they do with the rest of the disposable drones? I guess that all depends on who gets elected. We all know "equality" for what is really is in this world.

I don't like waiting for the problem. It will happen. I want people to be very sure that I wasn't surprised, because I wasn't surprised.

Do you understand the difference between a democracy and a republic?
Are our laws based on what the majority want?

This assertion would look slightly less idiotic, if the US didn't specifically prohibit holding a title, or acknowledging nobility.

Do you understand what aristocracy actually is?

Looks like someone is running for the lower class twit of the year award.

I DON'T give a damn what folks call it....the State calls it MARRIAGE plain and simple!!!
"I now pronounce you husband and wife".......after all if it's all marriage, then the state make that pronouncement for all marriages....right?
Yes, being Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual are normal variations with regards to the human sexuality traits.....and are innate just like being straight is!
Really...so "Gay, Lesbian, or Bisexual", and "straight" are scientific terms related to human sexuality? Or are they sexual identity labels people choose for themselves?
When DOMA was signed in 1996, the Federal Government took it upon themselves to encase DISCRIMINATION and that's why Section 3 is NO longer valid....
So when the Federal government told the Mormons in the mid 19th century at they had to disavow plural marriage in order for Utah to become a state, did they take it upon themselves to "...encase DISCRIMINATION..."?
......one CAN'T say this marriage is more valuable than that marriage..
So says you...but not the rest of society. It's a matter of function, form, and purpose.
......at least NOT without being discriminatory!!!
Uhhhhhh....huh...so any "marriage" is "valuable" regardless of who defines it, and it's composition? Well heck, let's just stick the label "marriage" on any number of relationships, and lo and behold it becomes "valuable".

Guess what, Pietro, the state requires no such pronouncement. You sign a legal contract, and pay a fee.

It matters not one way or the other. They are still people entitled to equality under the law.

It isn't discriminatory, the Mormons had the same rights under the law as everyone else. You have been utterly incapable of articulating a single state interest served by denying same sex couples equality under the law to marry. Polygamists don't seek equal protection of the law.
Pietro Armando wrote:

The rest of society doesn't get a vote in who an individual marries. It is between the two individuals, unless there is a state interest in preventing the marriage.

Is this the best you can do, because this argument make you look dumber than usual, and that is really saying something.

You believe that because someone told you. The Giants I was talking about were human beings who knew what they were, what they were for and how to produce the substances the Universe needs.

You are a factory: You eat and you shit. You breath in and you exhale. You take in impressions and nothing happens. You are a flesh and blood machine. Tell me, what is your own?

Everyone always wants to make distinction and exceptions. LOL. We have all spoken to people who have both sold sex for money and who have purchases sex for money. Only we never know it. Just like we all know men who have sex with men and we don't know it.

I just watched Kinsey last night and it reminded me about how much we only see the surface of people and really haven't a clue about all the fantasies they indulge in, or want to indulge in. Usually the more one puts some sexual activity down the more interested they are in doing it. Americans in particular are really sexually hung up and repress their normal sexual functioning.

Just look at psycho's like Seven Tee.

Of course they do. Can you produce a list of these elusive "greater protections?"
Before you start, I know state law doesn't allow polygamy, most states don't allow same sex marriage either.
