    Uh... the fact that it is purposely defined to exclude a specific type of marriages?
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Hey, when that's all ya got, ya go with it.

    Unfortunately, I really wish I could say you were wrong, but I think this is the likely scenario. SCOTUS has a 5-4 conservative slant right now. Swing votes are possible, but it's a tough one. If Prop 8's supporters are as inept in the SCOTUS trial as they were in this one, there's a better chance, but if I were betting my life savings it would be on the bible thumpers.
    This is gonna be a good baptism by fire for Sonya. I'm hoping she can provide the fire to help Kennedy to stand up against those right wingers.

    How is the orientation of the judge relevant?

    Other types of things are not marriage though. You can exclude a man to animal marriage. What this does is officially defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman in the state of California, thus stating that all other unions are not marriages.
    States have their rights, and many other states (including mine) have passed very similar amendments that have not been found to be illegal.

    For people like myself, we have religious convictions that state marriage is between a man and woman. Plus the traditional definition of marriage outside of religion is still a union between a man and woman. A marriage is a special type of relationship that is distinct from a homosexual union. Homosexual unions are not equal to nor are they a marriage.

    in other words nothing that really matters. its like people who used to argue that hunting on sunday should be banned. not being religious appeals to "the sabbath" mean nothing to me.

    I am just one of those people who don't think stuff ought to be banned unless someone can meet a high burden of proof and establish that a ban really does help society

    so far i see nothing
