In order for the governmental restriction to prevail, the government must show a compelling governmental interest to justify the action.

    The Court in the recent marriage equality case engaged in the same exact analysis.


    Sorry dude.....but you lose.


    Try picking up a textbook and reading a little before you come to the table next time.
    We all have access to google, and your attempts to school are laughable. Of course you ignore that sexual orientation is NOT considered a constitutionally protected class. IF you had read more than a simple google search you might have known that already.

    Again, it would be quite some time until such things could legitimately be considered a legal spouse because they cannot be considered a legal person unless they have some reliable form of consciousness. The "sex bot" would need to be an AI, and then it would almost certainly have to prove that it was independent of its creator, and be free to make its own choices.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    You know my comments thus far have been tongue in cheek, but there is a painful element of truth to them. Capture just one generation's imagination and anything is possible now that the constitution officially just doesn't matter.

    You know there are some apes who are very good at sign language. All it takes is five of nine justices to decide that's enough for consent and personhood.

    It had nothing to do with "protected class".....Doh! You might want to read the opinion. It had to do with a "Fundamental Right"....(just like Loving) and substantive due process under the 14th Amendment (just like Loving). Double DOH!!

    Now Clownboy......lets see if you can answer at least one of the two easier questions

    1. Does the Chief Justice have any more power/authority than any of the other Justices?

    2. How does one become a Chief Justice.


    Or are we just going to see more shuffle and dodge?

    This discussion has been debated ad infinitum here on these forums. I suggest you take the time to read over past discussions and their citations before you hang yourself out on yet another limb.

    And here you are, try to play the teacher tactic and fail miserably only to try it again expecting a different result.

    Sorry, I don't trust your lack of knowledge on the subject and refuse to allow you to guide me through your flawed thought process.
