    So... you think a gay person is going to reluctantly reproduce with someone they have no desire to have sex with... on a mental level....

    Or are you still one of those people that think the Jesus Camps to "turn gay kids straight" will actually work?

    Gay people are born that way.... they aren't going to change because access to marriage isn't around.....

    The 'power of the states' to decide whether they got to discriminate based on race, sexuality, etc has been in jeopardy for quite some time.

    And what does "since them colored and whites got the right to get married" mean or have to do with anything???
    It's an example of the decline of the state right to discriminate.

    Im just saying...... by making the statement in the majority opinion... they have now created "constitutional backing" for more than just gay marriage.

    I have no doubt this could have been handled by legislative action without opening up a potential can of worms.



    However, if polygamy is legalized... I could give two ****s less..... still doesn't harm my marriage at all. Neither does gay marriage... despite what the jesus freaks seem to think.

    So, in other words, once again, some people are more equal than others.
    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.

    If you really knew the arguments used by the segregationists during the Jim Crow era, you'd understand...because the arguments they used then really aren't much different from those used against same-sex marriage today - against God's law, against nature, and all that.

    Look up "Loving v. Virginia" and you should see what I mean.

    Anyone notice that the people in the ME are also killing each other at such a rate that birth rates are negative in some places? Oh and birth rates .. have you actually bothered to look that up?

    Probably means that people will try to marginalize Kennedy, the swing vote, as a second-choice who somehow "doesn't count." Bork never would have ruled in favor of gay marriage. Of course, Bork died three years ago, so if he had been confirmed, all that means is that Obama would have appointed another pro-gay marriage justice.

    A columnist for The National Review (yeah, yeah, I know) wrote this nonsense earlier:

    I think they explained those costs very well. They are still explaining those costs very well. But those who don't want to hear those costs refuse to hear or consider them and blow them off as irrelevant or nonexistent.

    Just to give you a heads-up, guy - that doesn't wash. The single most common determinant for a nation's growth rate is the level of poverty therein. There are other factors, but that's the big one. Has nothing to do with politics, and everything to do with poor people looking for something to do that they can afford to do.
