    It is what it is. An opinion based on feelings, not law. And so be it. This is the system we have.
    No, personal opinion and emotion is what you are using to decide that the state has a legitimate interest in denying same-sex couples a marriage license.

    No, it doesn't. It didn't work for the Piggy Park guy, it won't work here. And the SCOTUS has already refused to uphold this as any sort of reality by refusing to hear the argument with the photographer.

    When they grievously break this contract, there is no reason for anyone else to follow it.
    Translation: I don't agree with the Court.

    Nope. Either you just worship authority and can't think for yourself, or you're pretending this is the case because its convenient.

    Doubling down on the nonsense of Roe is not a good sign.


    If you live long enough you will see the court move farther to the left.

    In about 30 years the GOP will be reduced to a small, regional, party when the demographic change which is building up right now hits it like a tidal wave.

    So, in addition to being a "libertarian," you are psychic too and know what I am or am not pretending? Go ahead, stick to this argument. It's great entertainment!

    Not if you aren't taking care of her. Alimony is not common unless there is a difference in the amount of support one adult human has been providing to another, and that is due mainly to their roles in the marriage.

    Maybe. From what I hear though those are hardly ever valid

    Yes it does.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
