    Also, noticed your post on your question of polygamy. I'm pretty sure that this ruling didn't affect that. But I honestly think that it should. After all, it is still a marriage between two consenting adults.

    To your first point, read what you wrote, Kal. The denial of it to anything other than one man and one woman is regulating it, until now of course.

    To your second point, If you read the decision, there is no way this majority could refuse a polygamy challenge based entirely on the language the majority used to justify this decision. It's a foregone conclusion actually.

    the problem with that argument is that the slave's KNEW they were slaves and people who couldn't vote KNEW they couldn't vote. a gay man who died in 1990 did was never DENIED marriage because he didn't KNOW he was being denied it. this....this....thing....issue of being denied "rights" he didn't even know he was being denied until the lefte decided to MAKE IT a right they were being denied.

    i know, it makes absolutely NO SENSE to me either. why try to understand it. I'm just going to smile and nod like I know what's going on. enjoy your victory.

    What people that would otherwise have any distinguishing feature that are not man and woman? Can you be specific?

    Now back to the abortion question....
    You embrace a deep deep evil and you are merely trying to distract yourself from your evil behavior with that question. You refuse to accept your hatred of minorities and wish to focus on abortion. I won't give you the satisfaction.

    I am pretty sure gay men in 1990 were trying to get married....

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeli..._marriage#1975

    October 15: The Supreme Court of the U.S. state of Minnesota upholds the decision of a lower court that denying a marriage license to a same-sex couple did not violate the U.S. Constitution."[19] This was in reference to a marriage application filed by activist Jack Baker and Michael McConnell in 1970, which garnered extensive media attention. An appeal of that decision ended when the U.S. Supreme Court accepted the case as required by a law in effect but then dismissed it "for want of a substantial federal question".[19] (see Baker v. Nelson). Until 1973, there was no restriction on gender in any marriage statute in any state within the U.S.

    January 1: Maryland becomes the first state in the U.S. to statutorily ban same-sex marriage.[20] In the following two decades, other states joined Maryland in statutorily banning same-sex marriage, reaching almost the totality of US states by 1994.

    May 20: Singer v. Hara, a lawsuit filed by John F. Singer and Paul Barwick after being refused a request for a marriage license at the King County Administration Building in Seattle, Washington on 20 September 1971, ends with a unanimous rejection by the Washington State Court of Appeals.[21]

    March 26: Boulder County clerk Clela Rorex issues first U.S. same-sex marriage license. During the following month, she issued five more same-sex marriage licenses. Boulder District Attorney deferred the licenses, which became void. The matter never reached the courts.[22][23][24]
    Keep telling yourself this was made up in the later half of the 20th century.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
