    Shhhhh, don't look, there's a gay person behind you. Better get out of your house quick or you'll catch the gay disease.

    LOL I love righty paranoia and conspiracies. They are amusing to say the least.

They can't have it both ways, though of course Scalia and Thomas are total hacks and don't seem to care about coherency in their opinions, just their political agenda.
    What? Politics in government? Say it aint so!

    I don't think prop eight is going to survive its first challenge. The lawyers supporting prop eight did not exactly make a slam dunk of a argument.

    Re: Scalia Wonders If Same-Sex Parents ‘Harmful’ To Children

    Here is just one of a many articles debunking previously activist-biased "studies" referencing true and accurate studies that present what we already intuitively know: that SS couples severely damage their adopted/inseminated kids compared to kids of OS couples:
    New Research on Children of Same-Sex Parents Suggests Differences Matter | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News Blog from The Heritage Foundation
    According to NFSS, just 1.7 percent of young adults ages 18 to 39 reported having a parent who has had a same-sex romantic relationship. The experience of long-term stability in same-sex households is rarer still. Among those who reported having a mother who had a same-sex relationship, 91 percent said they lived with their mothers when they were in the relationship. Fifty-seven percent reported living with their mother and her partner for more than four months, and 23 percent for at least three years. Among young adults whose fathers had a same-sex relationship, 42 percent said they lived with them during the relationship; 24 percent said they lived with their fathers and fathers’ partners for more than four months; and less than 2 percent for at least three years.

    Only two respondents whose mothers had a same-sex relationship reported that this living arrangement lasted all 18 years of their childhood. No respondents with fathers who had a same-sex relationship reported such longevity.

    The NFSS surveyed young adult respondents about their own relationship history and quality, economic and employment status, health outcomes, abuse history, educational attainment, relationship with parents, psychological and emotional well-being, substance use, and sexual behaviors and outcomes.

    Compared to young adults in traditional, intact families, young adults whose mothers had a same-sex relationship tended to fare worse than their peers in intact biological families on 24 of the 40 outcomes examined. For example, they were far more likely to report being sexually victimized, to be on welfare, or to be currently unemployed.

    Young adults whose fathers had a same-sex relationship showed significant differences from their peers in intact families on 19 of the outcomes. For example, they were significantly more likely to have contemplated suicide, to have a sexually transmitted infection, or to have been forced to have sex against their will.
    I know that pre-conceived ideologues compulsively clamor for "proof", which they will reject everytime it's presented.

    But the rest of us intuitively know that the results of this study isn't a big shock; we know the obvious damage to kids in their adult life, especially in their romantic relationships, caused by being raised by an SS couple.

    It's been known since before the agrarian revolution, which is why from the onset marriage has been between a man and a woman as husband and wife.

    Today, SS activists have for 50 years brainwashed generations with the oxymoronic phrase "gay marriage" until the masses are "comfortable" with the emotional feel of it.

    However, when presented with the facts, as I have done throughout, it's clear there is no reason whatsoever to be comfortable with this kind of child abuse.

    Ideologues will not be affected by the truth of it, as they are too far gone mentally.

    But those still possessing the ability to think for themselves will understandably realize the truth that I present.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    I don't understand why Scalia even mentioned this, it has nothing to do with the question at hand. It seems as if he's already arguing the next decision to be put before the court.

    It's called 'same-sex' marriage, not 'gay'-marriage for a reason. I'm hetero, I cannot marry a man. I am under all the same restrictions as everyone else.
