    Its fun watching the radical right-wingers waking up this morning realizing that they are losing their grip on the last vestiges of bigotry and desperately trying to hold on.

    That's right and homosexuals aren't in one of those special classes that require special scrutiny.

    The separate but equal argument does sound absurd, doesn't it?

    That is open to question. It appears that the court may treat homosexuality with intermediate scrutiny. But regardless, it doesn't even matter because even if they are regarded standard scrutiny...there are 5 votes on the Supreme Court indicating that their is not even a legitimate state interest in straight only marriages.

    Then there's no point in following the 10 commandments, is there.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    every time you bring this up it shows you clearly do not understand rights, laws and freedoms and nobody honest and educated on the matter falls for it, its laughable for you to think this has any meaningles

    also not all restrooms are separate lol

    peeping tom is breaking the law and infringe on the rights of others, your example fails

    You are free to live in denial but that doesn't change these facts.
    The fact is that humanity is starting to overthrow the oppressive weight of religion and religion is the only reason that the 1 male + 1 female model has persisted. In most countries where religiousity is falling, gay marriage is being legalized. This is a good thing. Religion is failing, reality is prevailing. That's as it should be.

    If that was true, then the 1 man and 1 woman model of marriage would only be found in cultures that have a strong religious framework and the fact is that 1 man and 1 woman has been pretty standard for virtually every culture, religious or not. Picts, Celts, Native Americans, Eskimos, Asians, Budhists, Hindus, Mayans...

    There is no creature that mates for life that pairs for life in a homosexual bond. That probably has something to do with the reason why male and female has been the standard pairing for our species, too.

    Again, what if he claims he's a woman trapped in a man's body. Where's the sympathy? Where's the love, my brutha?
