    here's hoping for the best. it's a clear cut equal protection issue. let's hope that they decide that way.

    as a heterosexual, i can marry any girl i fall for if i so choose. homosexuals should have the same ability to marry someone of their own sex who they fall in love with.

    You never had any such right. You don't today, you won't ever. There are always restrictions.

    Besides, your feelings towards anyone is non of the government's buisness unles you intend to harm them.

    come on Jerry ... you got his point ... every state will recognize his marriage, but not if he was marrying another guy, right?

    Even after SSM is legal he still will not be able to marry just whomever he wants to, so his point is false either way.

    Noone has that right. Noone ever did. Noone ever will.

    Since the Declaration of Independence is part of our Organic Law, and recognizes the right of all men to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, the Supreme Court must rule in support of same sex marriage.

    sure i do. i could go out tonight, meet a single girl, marry her Monday, divorce her, and do the same thing all over again. every state in the union would recognize the marriage(s).

    my gay friends? they could love each other for life and still not be able to get hitched, unless they moved to a state that would recognize it. that's not equal protection.

    Gays are welcome to pledge their love to each other all they want, publicly or privately. If they want the same rights as a married heterosexual couple, they can get civil unions. They can refer to themselves as "married" all they want, and others can refer to them that way too. They just don't have the legal label of being "married". Yes, it's not the exact same type of legal status as a heterosexual marriage. But then, it's also not the exact same type of relationship as a heterosexual marriage.

    it is, though. SCOTUS has already tossed separate but equal.

    This won't work. There are too many states that will not accommodate these sodomites evil desires.
