    Yeah exactly. God forbid we have some diversity in this world.

    Look, he has piles of black people using his bathroom. Just because he bleaches the toilet seat afterward and sprays Spook-B-Gone, doesn't mean he's a racist.

    I think a great many people shouldn't reproduce. But there's not much I can do about that. heh

    But for this issue, I think it's one of the dangers of the marriage license. In fact, what the judge did here was exactly why the marriage license was first created. The marriage license should be done away with and marriage returned to a solely religious institution.

    I don't think it's possible for marriage to be solely religious, though, considering that one gains certain important legal rights when entering into marriage.

    You can make those contracts separate.

    I propose we stop all procreation for the good of the children since no matter what race, religion, sex children will confront bigotry in some form.

    And then you'd get dumbass Southern lawyers refusing to draw these contracts if they involve interracial couples. You know, FOR THE CHILDREN.

    I think there can be some very standard forms which one fills out which will grant what marriage grants now. Most of that stuff should be up to the individual anyway, not hinging on marriage. A lot of "perks" of marriage of the tax persuasion, I'd get rid of anyway.

    I'm sorry -- given discussions from the past, I was under the impression that "the welfare of the child" was a particulary compelling state interest, and as such, was a legitimate restraint on the exercise of any number of rights.

    I guess there's a fair amount of subjectivity behind said argument.
