    Ahhhhhh!!!!!

    Lastly, what does it matter to you? If the definition were to include marriage to animals, would that affect your relationship or the relationship of others to their spouses?

    Defending a definition is nothing more than an excuse to discriminate...
    I'm not opposed to SSM but yes, I do believe that allowing legal marriages to animals would severely damage the entire concept. Good thing I don't see SSM as being in any way similar, but by suggesting that allowing people to marry animals is just as legit you damage the whole valid pro SSM position and actually make that often cited fear of the slippery slope seem a little less far fetched.
    The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

    Does your wife know about how much you obsess about gay sex?

    It is a concern..
    Like I said many times I could care less what gays do in the privacy of their bedrooms and if they want to hook up I am for giving them the same benefits as straights and I think gov. recognition of their hookups in Civil Unions would do the job.. I just don't want the sacrament of Holy Matrimony desecrated and to that end I will fight to my last breath.

    Luckily that won't be long from now so you won't have to fight long. Christians did not invent marriage. You do not have a patent on it and you don't get to define it for everyone else. It was only 40 years ago where people like you, or hey maybe even you, used the same exact arguments to prohibit interracial marriage.

    It's just not right if they're not white, amiright?

    I don't know why any state would need to answer that. It should be enough that most people living there believe that allowing partners of the same sex to marry each other would be a socially destructive policy, just as they believe allowing incestuous or polygamous marriages would be.

    The Supreme Court has never suggested that any heightened standard of review applies to laws that discriminate against homosexuals, in marriage or anything else. Not in Romer v. Evans; not in Lawrence v. Texas; and at least as far as anyone can understand Justice Kennedy's muddled language in Windsor last year, not there either.

    There is no reason at all to think that, in equal protection or substantive due process challenges to state marriage laws that exclude same-sex partners, anything but the Supreme Court's rational basis review standard should apply. And under that standard, which reflects the deference courts show legislatures out of respect for the Constitution's separation of powers, the law being challenged is presumed to be constitutional. The burden is on the party challenging it to show it is not rationally related to any legitimate purpose of government.

    How about this.

    I personally do not care what church allows or does not allow in terms of marriage. Never have never will. If they discriminate against gays, so be it. That being said, there are laws against discrimination, so they need to clearly stay within the law.

    I think ALL marriages (if they want to "enjoy" federal benefit ) need to be civil unions.

    Yep, same **** different day. You know, for a "straight" guy you sure do seem to have an obsession with gay sex and gay marriage. You wouldn't have to talk or think about it at all, but you do day in and day out. You've probably started more gay threads than almost any poster on this forum. Food for thought.

    I don't think you have a firm grasp of the term 'enemy'. I was a grunt and I'd never live in enemy territory- hunt there but not grow old there. I live in Oklahoma, not a real liberal state to say the least and I don't consider my neighbors 'the enemy'. They are just under a shallow spell cast by shammers poising as religious leaders...

    You mean like when a government puts an issue on the ballot then, no matter the outcome, sides with the minority kind of bigotry?

    Yeah, that sucks!

    Some issues don't belong on the ballot, like human rights. So I guess it does suck when a state gives the majority the right to subjugate a group of people and higher government takes that right away from them. I sure that ruffles your feathers.
