    I'm hoping you can rip it to sheds in a civil and intelligent way so that I can put you on the list for a new social group for higher debate

    The argument line of "I want what I want and denying me what I want is unequal" doesn't work, just to clarify.
    Within these sentences, what claim is made?

    No. Again, you have to understand that not everything is treated the same under Equal protection analysis. People who don't understand it make that misconception all the time.

    There are 3 levels of analysis: Strict Scrutiny being the highest, Intermediate and Standard Scrutiny.

    Each triggers a different burden on the government to justify its infringement.
    Strict requires a compelling governmental interest
    Intermediate an important one
    and Standard...a legitimate one.
    "...No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
    -Fourteenth Amendment.


    I still can't find the part where it says a "legitimate public interest" is sufficient cause to violate the Constitution. Did they write it in magic marker or something?

    I prefer legal and historical texts, but thanks anyway.
    It is more fun to simply accuse though...

    You did not answer Ethereal's question.

    Incidentally, what is the ISBN # of "Equal Protection for dummies"?

    Such civil unions could be open to anyone, just like driving is.
