    Is your flower shop a church? A religion? Is its primary purpose to serve paying customers?

    Does today's future have any direct impact or permit any of those types of non-traditional marriage? No.

    Will future attorneys try and use today's ruling to make the argument for those types of marriages in the future? Probably.

    But when they do, they will have to overcome the Government's argument that the prohibition helps to prevent fraud and tax evasion (for polygamy) and that the situation will not lead to abuse (in the case of underage marriage) and that the marriage will not likely be the result of undue influence (very close familial marriage).

    Not most. Just a certain regressive section of the population who seem stuck in the 1800's.

    It's been a while since we talked about it in the same thread at the same time, but in case you don't remember, I certainly don't support the government issuing marriage licenses.

    That's your problem.

    Who cares? I know that I don't.

    I have no particular interest in this subject other than I don't believe that government should be in the business of sanctioning or banning individual, legally contracted, relationships and they shouldn't be in the business of picking winners and losers based on their piece of paper. I believe every individual, for purposes of love or security or whatever other reason, should be able to enter into a contracted relationship that is honoured and respected by government and the courts. If you can enter into a contract to have your lawn mowed, and that contract can be adjudicated in court based on the terms of the contract, there's zero reason why only a government issued piece of paper validates a relationship contract.

    That said, the issue here in Canada has been a non-issue for the most part. No churches have been mandated to marry anyone and never will. It's possible, in the US, where the left takes everything to extremes and goes way overboard that there will be a push to punish the religious right by trying to force them into performing same sex marriages, but I would hope they wouldn't.

    The next move, if the right is serious about the so called damage this will cause society, will be for them to push to have government eliminate all benefits that accrue to those who hold paper. Tax and other law should be based on individuals and the rights of individuals. To do otherwise will open up the courts to the next wave of social, sexual, rights seekers.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    You may have won a court case, and the left-leaning folks on this site may support you, but you will NEVER be socially accepted by mainstream America.

    I never had a problem with gays before today, but this is too much. I will not be your friend.
