What people refer to as "marriage" is nothing but a contract between two individuals and it should be treated as such - in reality true "marriage" is a faith based sacrament.

    Besides, I don't understand why gays are so interested in wanting to get "married" - if someone loves someone else why would recognition from the state be important? That is why I believe this issue has nothing to do with marriage or love and everything to do with activism. I mean there is absolutely nothing stopping homosexuals from engaging in civil contracts with their "lover," and like I said marriage is nothing more than a contract.

    I suppose, IMO that gays really don't want gay marriage but they (ignorantly) believe that if the government accepts their demands a) they won something and b) they're finally "accepted" when in reality no one will shift their opinion just because the government recognizes them as "married."

    Yeah! I mean, why would anyone want their relationship to be treated equal to everyone else's? Why can't they just settle for separate-but-not-actually-equal!?

    Why do heterosexuals get married? Shouldn't love be enough?

I don't see more than three of the Justices having anywhere near the intestinal fortitude to do what's Right in the face of what is Popular and Politically Correct on this issue. It may even be more lopsided than that. Just another nail in the coffin of what once was a Great Nation.

    I always love when somebody proclaims equal rights as immoral and not having values its very funny and it actually WHY we are a great nation because we do fight for equal rights and values.

    So we should have equal rights for cannibals like Jeffery Dahlmer, right? I mean he was just living a different lifestyle. How about for pedophiles, polygamists, or rapists? There have to be some lines in the sand that we simply do not cross. If there aren't, then our society is nothing more than anarchy. It's just that simple.

    For myself I'm quite happy the court will finally address this issue. Long over due and I've been a proponent of allowing homosexuals the right to marriage for a long long time. Can't wait to see the dust up over their ruling.

    This COULD make the Rodney King and OJ rulings look like Disneyland.

    True. This ruling could make the Rodney King and OJ reactions look like VE Day. It could truly be that bad, if this goes the way I expect it to.

    I can't imagine any comparison between the reaction to the Simpson case and allowing homosexuals to be married. You do know that that has already occurred in the US right? Homosexuals allowed to marry? Where were the riots and looting associated with OJ?
