    Who equated pedos with homosexuals? Might want to pay closer attention to what you are reading. Gets rather hard to debate with someone who cannot follow the argument any better than expressed there.

    When you figure it out, maybe then we can discuss.

    And yet that is how it has been since 1967.

    Chief Justice Earl Warren's opinion for the unanimous court held that:

    "Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival.... To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State."

    But I guess if you find American history to be absurd...

    screw your crap period yes if the people rise up they can change or overturn the constitution but you have yet to give any reason for why we your fellow human being and often fellow citizens should join you in discriminating against people who want a same sex marriage or the right to one. nether have you given any reasons for us to ignore are own laws and principles in order to do so

    and no one else can do any better then you can that's why same sex marriage is gaining ground in the courts and in popular opinion no conspiracy no brain washing no hidden agenda or any other excuse as to why people don't just agree with you just common sense

    and that's why we will demand same sex marriage across the nation maybe even across the globe its the right thing to do if you believe in doing unto others as you would have them do unto you its the right thing to do if you believe that people should be treated fairly under the law

    I refuse to celebrate or accept the will of the people clearly running rough shod over the rights of the people

    Perhaps these two.

    You are free to love and to marry whomever you care to [ as long as they want as well ], nobody is stopping you. Just do not expect the marriage to be sanctioned by the state... or by the rest of us. Oh, and if your penchant is love and marriage to children, I would wait on the whole consummation of marriage thing. Prison may or may not be your bag.

    And we are at least somewhat in agreement on the whole taxes thing... I agree, lets pay less taxes to this overbearing government, limit its size...yeah man...kumbaya my lord, kumbaya...
    Oh, you're right! You didn't equate homosexuality with pedophilia. You simply tried to insinuate that I might like little kids. Nice. Glad we got that cleared up.
