    Have gays always been a recognized class? What's the matter? Don't like being called a bigot?

    I do not use the term marriage equality.
    SCOTUS did

    Homosexuality was labeled as a mental illness by that same organization until it was only removed for political reasons. Homosexuals are identified by their sexual preferences. There is no gene. Being gay is not a race.

    Okay, let me come at this another way - I'll be happy when marriage is, in no way, federally recognized or encouraged through financial benefits.

    Everyone should have a "right" to get married. Not everyone should be rewarded to do so.
    Ahh, but as a so-called libertarian, surely you don't support the government being unequal in its "rewarding" of people for being married?

    A great day to be gay in America! Big thanks to allies who made this possible. Given how this decision reads, I think it will be legal in all states within 5-10 years. The courts have proven infinitely more useful than our government when it comes to equality for all Americans.

    Haven't I made this perfectly clear by now?

    In case it STILL isn't, the purpose of me saying "not everyone" is to say "nobody". I like to think I've made this crystal clear by now, but I guess we have to wait for some people to come around.

    I never said that polygamy was close to same sex marriage. You're making things up.

    Procreation is not a requirement of marriage in the US. (You wouldn't happen to be arguing on Yahoo too, would you? Because I have only seen it twice, but it has happened twice today, someone making a horrible comparison between Frankenstein and IVF/surrogacy.)
    Never said it was.

    No, same sex marriage was not made legal today. It happened years ago, for the US back when Massachusetts became the first state to allow same sex couples to marry.
    I didn't say legal. I said Constitutional.

    But no, the SCOTUS did not say that marriage could mean anything. You are trying to misrepresent what was actually said in their ruling.
    SCOTUS says there is no Federal definition of marriage. If marriage doesn't mean anything, what does it mean?

    Scalia is still one of my least favorite Justices to read. That and a few of Kennedy's opinions, i.e. Nicastro.

    I'm not the one that labeled it a mental illness until it was removed from the DSM criteria for political reasons.
