    OK, the states have the "right" to discriminate. Sorry, but I won't be crying even crocodile tears that their precious right to withhold privileges from disfavored minorities is restricted.

    There is no need to because the States Amended their Constitution and revised Statutory law, it has nothing to do with Common Law. Hell the vast majority of states don't allow for common law marriage anymore.


    The States enacted Amendment and Statutory laws, you were backed into a corner and are now trying to deflect.

    Including gays makes no change to what you think is the sensible institution marriage is. In fact it more sensible to include gays then exclude them.

    Same sex marriage makes perfect sense and there is nothing contradictory about same sex marriage.

    Soon as you show me where it says the 14th amendment only applies to "laws in the constitution."

    The premise of your query is rejected. By me and the Supreme Court.

    No, you're the one simply declaring victory and having no intelligent argument to back you up. It's your side that's done and buried, you just haven't figured it out yet.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    So then there isn't an issue, solved in Loving vs. Va. Amazing how this ruling is what you want it to be when the actual ruling is all about race, not SSM

    Typical reaction though, when you are getting your ass kicked on Constitutional Law deflect to incest and bestiality. Surprised you didn't throw in coffe table for inanimate objects and a 6-year old for raping a child.

    I have had my ass kicked many times but never by you. The Constitution was written by our Founders who understood, unlike you, that too much power at the central level is no better than what they had in England thus they listed those powers in that Constitution. Equal protection and the 14th Amendment apply to the Constitution. You want marriage in the Constitution, then go for it

    Of course it does but you seem to forget our history which isn't surprising as you probably never studied our history. The Constitution laid out the laws of the land leaving room for the states to make their own laws. If a law isn't in the Constitution, it isn't covered by the Constitution. Seems like a simple concept to understand but not for radical liberals.

    So what you want is a big central govt. that tells you what that central govt. wants. What is absolute nonsense is the attitude of many on this thread and every other SSM thread. Marriage isn't in the Constitution, it is common law and a state issue thus the Constitution has nothing to do with it. You want marriage in the Constitution, go for it

    Discriminate against whom? You want gays to be a class of citizens? Wrong, being gay is a personal choice and personal choice isn't a civil right. 19 states recognize gay marriage, now you only have 31 more to go, go for it
