    how does someone 'donate' children to you? Children from all broken relations, perverted or not, are cared for as best as posible by the state, social organizations, religious groups, and volunteers.

    That's because Loving vs. Virginia declared laws against interracial marriage unconstitutional.



    It's not my business to tell you why you should marry another adult.
    Wrongly

    And again why should i be limited to one person or a person at all?

    Do you have to be heterosexual or in love to marry a woman as a man, or a man as a woman?
    That is clearly unconstitutional as they are using race. Is homosexuality now a race? Can I tell you are homosexual just by looking at you? Is discrimination in any form unconstitutional?

    Do you even have to love someone to marry them? This is a canard. Love is an emotion and nothing to base law upon. There are many reasons to marry love being only one of them.

    Not wrongly. Gender is a protected classification much in the same way that race is a protected classification. Defining marriage as between a man and a woman is a gender-based distinction that is subject to an equal protection challenge, which requires the state to justify the distinction as being part of an "important state interest" and that the measure is "substantially related" to that interest.

    Name the state interest in banning same-sex marriage, mr. so-called libertarian.

    Discrimination is not always unconstitutional, no.

    As your arguments fail, it's irrelevant that you think so.

    In order to understand the silliness of the slippery slope route, you have to back up:

    "Once they allow people of different nationalities to marry, they'll be allowed to marry their table."
    "Once they allow people of different religious faiths to marry, they'll be allowed to marry their table."
    "Once they allow people of different races to marry, they'll etc. etc."

    So if you're going to make the slipper slope argument, remember to start at the top of the slope.

    You think this is over, it's not. They will find a way to get money out of this, it's not just about the right to do something....it never is. Most gays will probably get married and that'll be the end of it......but not for the activists, because they're in the victimhood business; and business is good.

    That is what I see here and gay marriage has been been legal for almost a decade.

    They're not "barred". You can't be barred from something that can't be by basic definition. We're twisting the definition of a word to placate them so they can play pretend. Nothing more. Doesn't change what real marriage is.

    And with that, I've spent WAY too much time on this ridiculous subject the past 24 hours. Hasta la vista.
    Literally arguing semantics. That's how you know your side is losing.

    Maybe in Canada, don't know. But just like abortion, it starts out as a fight for the right to do something. But it doesn't end there, then the fight moves to the next level where you try to make other people pay for it.
