Your attempts at rational thought as as amusing as they are poorly reasonedGuess, what kiddo, same sex couples can and do legally marry in every state in the nationNot anymoreWhich is civil marriage, kiddoOne might has well argue that you are intelligent. Neither is trueSimple, you take a case to court arguing that limiting marriage to opposite sex couples unconstitutionally infringes upon the rights of same sex couples to equal protection under the law, file any appeals appropriate to your position, arrive at the US Supreme Court and have the laws prohibiting same sex marriage struck as being unconstitutional. Had you been paying attention you would know this process, because that is exactly what happenedI have no disdain for the nuclear family. Why you you have such disdain for the US ConstitutionPietro , you are an idiot. Now everyone, including same sex couples are treated equally under the law.  (11 hrs ago | post #334)

Still haven't learned to count, I see. Frankie, the laws restricting marriage to being between opposite sex couples were unconstitutional. The laws restricting marriage to being between two people are not. Same sex couples sought equal access the protections that already existed in every state in the union. Polygamists seek a new and thoroughly expanded legal instrument to protection three or more people. Currently no state has such a legal protection, in fact it is legally prohibited in every state. If you want polygamy legalized, then petition the government for redress of grievances, as afforded by the first amendment, or develop a compelling legal argument that the existing restrictions limiting marriage to being between two people are unconstitutional. While you are at it, take your argument and make it in a forum where it is relevant. It has no relevance to this thread.  (12 hrs ago | post #35012)

Or a husband and husband, or a wife and a wife. Marriage equality is the law of the land, and that same sex couples can marry would have no impact whatsoever upon your life were it not for your demented obsession with the private affairs of othersI have no problem with traditional marriage, nor do I have a problem with same sex marriage. Both are legally permissible. The only one being laughed at here is you because you put forth pathetic rhetoric that clearly illustrates that you are an idiot with a dubious grasp of the obvious, and suffers from the delusion that merely offering your opinion makes it factual. While you often claim marriage is between a man and a woman, the reality remains that same sex couple can marry in every state in the union.  (15 hrs ago | post #331)

How does this have any relevance to the topic, trollIt does if you unconstitutionally exclude them from equal protection of the law.  (16 hrs ago | post #256339)

The five struck an unconstitutional law. They exist to interpret the law and uphold laws that are constitutional, as well as to overturn those that are unconstitutional. Your assertion is idiotic, as they have forced nothing on anyone. If you don't like same sex marriage, then don't marry someone of the same sex.  (16 hrs ago | post #35008)

And you are an idiot. Polygamy does not seek equal protection of the law. Same sex marriage did. That is why the provisions that excluded same sex couples from legal marriage were unconstitutional, and the provisions limiting marriage to being between two people are not. The states are required to provide all persons within their jurisdiction equal protection of the law. A polygamist may marry the adult consenting partner of their choosing just like anyone else. Ergo equal protection under the law. What they seek is something more. Only an idiot or a liar would think these two issue are remotely corollary.  (16 hrs ago | post #35007)

Actually, it is a common sense measure, that would not impact you assuming that you are a responsible gun owner who maintains control of their weapon, and would report it missing if stolen. Why do you hate personal accountability? I thought conservatives were supposed to be all about personal accountability and being responsible people.  (Sunday | post #1339)

So, which ignorant person are you? Help, you are an idiot who has never offered factual support of a single assertion you have made in your life. While the first amendment grants you the right to have and express an opinion, that does not mean the opinion you have is valid or factually supported.  (Sunday | post #342)

That is not to say the right to marry is less meaningful for those who do not or cannot have children. An ability, desire, or promise to procreate is not and has not been a prerequisite for a valid marriage in any State. In light of precedent protecting the right of a married couple not to procreate, it cannot be said the Court or the States have conditioned the right to marry on the capacity or commitment to procreate. The constitutional marriage right has many aspects, of which childbearing is only one." "The respondents also argue allowing same-sex couples to wed will harm marriage as an institution by leading to fewer opposite-sex marriages. This may occur, the respondents contend, because licensing same-sex marriage severs the connection between natural procreation and marriage. That argument, however, rests on a counterintuitive view of opposite-sex couple¬ís decision making processes regarding marriage and parenthood. Decisions about whether to marry and raise children are based on many personal, romantic, and practical considerations; and it is unrealistic to conclude that an opposite-sex couple would choose not to marry simply because same-sex couples may do so. " "No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization¬ís oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right." OBERGEFELL v. HODGES  (Sunday | post #298)

You are an idiot. Can infertile couples and the elderly, both incapable of procreation, marry? If so, your entire argument is out the window.  (Sunday | post #296)
