    Flaunting is parading around and deliberately calling attention to yourself because, well maybe you didn't get enough attention when you were little?



    I'm not offended by you, I'm amused.

    Neither does a SCOTUS that endorses homosexuality.
    Truthfully, your morals are irrelevant. From what I've seen, you have not presented a logical argument to your position. Your sole reason seems to be "I don't like it". That's fine and that's your right, but it has no bearing in debate.

    I am one person, one opinion, one vote. But many think and feel similarly as I do. I do not presume to speak for anyone else, yet I do speak a concern shared by many millions of americans.

    Supreme court justices can ALSO be impeached.

    Can a US Supreme Court justice be impeached and removed from office

    We will have to wait until 2014 to see if wimpy congress gets any courage by infusion of fresh blood.
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    And yet the MAJORITY of Americans disagree with you. Don't forget that.

    Supreme court justices can ALSO be impeached.
    And they can be heralded for their excellent service.

    Or if Congress has the courage to support brave and intelligent decisions like today's.

    The supposed majority is 53% + or - 3% on the gallop poll, on a 1500+ sample WEIGHTED as Gallop decided to weight (raw unweighted response not published)

    so that's usually called roughly HALF the people, not a CLEAR CONVINCING MAJORITY!

    And invent some new words to describe yourself. Rainbow doesn't belong to you, nor gay for that matter. Old Fred Flintstone can't have a gay old time now days.

    if you want respect? GIVE SOME!
    I don't want respect from someone like you, at all. In fact, count your blessings that 17 years of DOMA is not followed by a 17 year ban on hetero marriage. That's frankly what people like you deserve.

    Plenty of polls out there, ranging in support from 53% to 57%. A majority is a majority. Also, so you are aware, age demographics shows 18-29 year olds support SSM with 73% and 30-44 year olds support it with 59%. As time goes on, the majority who support it will get larger... something we've seen consistently since 1996.

    Compared to 44% against, far more than half, and I'm guessing you've never taken a basic research class if you think 1500 is not an adequate sample size. Give it up. Ten years ago it was at 30% for. This is a consensus that national gay marriage is as inevitable as the hate you represent dying off.
