    I'm betting if anyone bothered to challenge it the governor's decision would go the way of the dodo bird pretty quickly. Staying an order DOES NOT retroactively invalidate what was done before the stay was issued.

    The point being....that in todays modern medical world there are many ways to procreate that don't involve the missionary position.

    Actually Republican's believe in smaller less intrusive government and more individual liberty, at least we did until social conservatives gained influence in the party in the 80's (influence that has been on the decline).

    I'm more a Goldwater Republican than a big government social authoritarian Republican. You seem to be the later.

    How is that relevant when that is not a requirement for straight marriage? We just went over this.

    They have sex with women, they use IVF, surrogates, whatever. Exactly the same as straight couples also do.

    Are you denying that there are gay families with the biological children of those parents? It doesnt have to be both...they're called 'step-children' just like in straight marriages. No different.

    You sir are the one who stated that Gays cannot procreate and made that an objection to them marrying. If you don't hold the same position for infertile hetero couples your objection is what is smoke and mirrors here.

    It doesn't matter that gays cannot procreate with each other. Pro-creation is not a requirement for marriage. With SSM legal, straight people can STILL marry and procreate. Deal with it.

    If gays being unable to procreate is a reason they shouldn't be allowed to sign a marriage contract, then surely this applies to infertile couples as well. Aren't you too old to have kids now? Can't procreate, so get divorced, right?

    Irrelevant. Can't procreate, can't marry. It's your argument, dude.

    Doesn't matter, if anything the fact that there aren't many makes for better argument since fewer people are harmed.

    Can't procreate can't be married by your logic.
