    You're just content to know what you know--the facts be damned. Domestic Partnership laws do not even come close to covering the same rights as a married couple. I gave you a link. You don't want to get better informed--so be it.


    If it's truly an issue of class, fine, void the existing gay-marriages. Problem solved.
    Using what legal mechanism or under what precedent would you have the court do that? Why don't you read the decision or read a summary of the decision before making a comment like that.

    The vote to note void the marriages was 7-0. They couldn't legally do it. The U.S. Court won't do it.

    Prop 8 is turning into a "be careful what you wish for" situation. They got their amendment. Now two of the top lawyers in the country are taking the 'new' Ca constitution to Washington.

    Jerry:

    Do you see yourself as homophobic, or just living in a logical-pragmatic vacuum? You put out this I don't hate them vibe, but reading between the lines, there's something going on.

    Can I get a witness?

    This is the thing. You and I have debated this issue many times in the past 3 years and always come to the same agreeing point. Regardless of position, gay marriage as an equality position is a loser. As a family position it is a winner. This is where the pro-GMers have it wrong, and where the religious, actually, have it right. From the wrong position, IMO, but they have the concept correct. That's why they are on the winning end. Everyone, personally, can relate to family. Not everyone can relate, personally, to inequality.
