    However....reading between the lines on both of the cases the USSC ruled on last term, it is pretty clear that they are in fact saying that. This is why Scalia went on his vitriolic diatribe

    Can't do business with gay lovers. Blasphemy.

    He didn't say they couldn't be gay, he says they can't have equal rights. Just sayin'. Probably he's been doing business with gay men all his life, but was/is shielded from knowing about it because anyone in their right mind wouldn't be honest with a person such a he about something like that.

    Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) also apparently supports SSM.

    That alone accounts for quite a few processors and graphics cards.
    That's nice, but the majority of computer parts are made in Japan, China and South Korea, none of which support gay marriage, or gays in particular.

    Two people of the same sex getting married has zero effect on your life.

    Regardless of where they are made, the majority of the profit goes to pro-SSM corporations. Can't pick and choose just to excuse you inability to live pro-SSM free.

    China's biggest problem? Too many men - CNN.com
    Adult, consensual and non-commercial homosexuality has been legal in the mainland PRC since 1997, when the national penal code was revised. Homosexuality was removed from the Ministry of Health's list of mental illnesses in 2001 and the public health campaign against AIDS-HIV pandemic does include education for men who have sex with men. Officially, overt police harassment of gay people is restricted to gay people engaging in gay sex acts in public or gay prostitution, which are also illegal for heterosexuals.

    However, despite these changes, no civil rights law exists to address discrimination or harassment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The media tends to censor positive depictions of gay couples in films and television shows and households headed by same-sex couples are not permitted to adopt children and do not have the same privileges as heterosexual married couples.

    There's another one for you, Deuce; The NMSC considered its marriage laws to prevent homosexuals from marrying.

    Therefore, barring individuals from marrying and depriving them of the rights, protections, and responsibilities of civil marriage solely because of their sexual orientation violates the Equal Protection Clause under Article II, Section 18 of the New Mexico Constitution. We hold that the State of New Mexico is constitutionally required to allow same-gender couples to marry and must extend to them the rights, protections, and responsibilities that derive from civil marriage under New Mexico law.
