    No there wasn't because they got their religious exemption.

We just can't definite it so as to violate the constitution...

    ...
    What's marriage then? SSM couples, hetro couples, groups of 3 or more that are all living? What if the couple or group has one member 16 years of age?

    Another SSM advocate who thinks they can define marriage... How do you think your 'DOMA' is gonna hold up in court?

    Consenting adults agreeing to marry one another. That's the whole definition. Whether or not it's only two consenting adults or more than that is an issue still to be resolved, but it doesn't need to be anything more complex than "consenting adults agreeing to marry one another."

    Ah, the "god" justification. Nice. It's not like any of "his" books justify marrying your rapist or anything. Oh, but wait:

    Talk about a degenerate, perversion of marriage.

    Well, it's Monday again and still no decision. My prediction, SCOTUS will find some place safe to hunker down for a while after they finally do announce a decision.

    You're not saying there was any 1st amendment rights violations, you and the NJ courts are saying there wasn't any 'greenhouse' violations. You're saying they already got an exemption. Was there a 1at amendment rights violation?

    What's the greenhouse issue, anyway?

    When you find a tomato capable of giving and manifesting legal consent, we'll continue down this road.
