    If by deviant, you mean morally wrong, then you are not correct. 49% of Americans thnk that homosexuality is morally wrong.

    Loving versus Virginia (1967): The "freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men."

    Taylor versus Safely (1987): "the decision to marry is a fundamental right" and "marriage is an expression of emotional support and public commitment."

    Zablocki versus Redhail (1978): "The right to marry is of fundamental importance for all individuals."
    My apologies. I meant on terms other than race.

    The Supreme Court established the scrutiny test for the Equal Protection Clause in Craig versus Boren in 1976.


    Walker ruled that Prop 8 did not pass the intermediate scrutiny test because the state had no substantial interest in mandating gender roles in marriage. Therefore, Prop 8 was gender discrimination. For children below the age of consent to be allowed to marry, it would have to pass the Rational-basis test. Care to explain how the government would have an interest in young children marrying pedophiles?
    Do children have gender? Do more than 2 people have gender? Gender is a factor in any alternative lifestyle. How can you descriminate against that?
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    LOL Because a few minutes passed by you think we all forgot about it? Thats quite an ego you've got.


    Maybe what scared them off was the fact that marriages based on pedophilia, polygamy, and bestiality can't pass under the terms of gender discrimination and the state has no substantial or rational interest in allowing them?
    No substantial or rational interest in allowing them? LOL Since when was your personal opinion of what is ration or substantial count as law? This is what is so pathetic in your argument. You can't discriminate against other lifestyles without injecting what you think is substantial or rational

    Nowhere in the equal protection clause states that a finding my CT or any other poster can exclude other alternative lifestyles based on their own feelings on what is substantial or rational interest

    You are missing the main point. Does it pass the scrutiny test?
