    No...Scalia....you are wrong. The overwhelming number of sociologists and psychologists have concluded that children living in same-sex parental homes are no different than children living in two parent heterosexual homes. There are perhaps a handful of conservative sociologists that disagree....but there is not "Considerable disagreement"....THAT is an outright lie.
    You people keep taking everything at face value.

    Stop that.

    From where I sit, Scalia is asking the questions which need to be asked so that pro-ssm can present their argument and hit a home-run.

    He should at least be honest. I don't think that is too much to ask of a Supreme Court justice. There is no way that Scalia can honestly saw that there is "considerable disagreement"....

    I don't think he's being dishonest. I think he's pointing to a concern pro-ssm aut to be able to adequately address. And pro-ssm should...this should be easy.

    Remember that Scalia is not the opponent. If SCOTUS rules on this at all, my money is that a strong majority will rule in favor of ssm, including Scalia.

    He is either being COMPLETELY dishonest.....or he is completely ignorant. With Scalia, it could be either.

    I agree. It was a very valid question. One that I do not think that any in-depth study has been done on. At least that I could find googling. There was one small study, but the sample wasn't enough to determine one way or the other.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Clearly, though, you choose not to have a fact-based discussion on the matter, as your mindset is already made up, and your again not-so-veiled ad hominem tendency is really the best that you have.
    My siggy is simply a line from an Elvis Costello song, and I have certainly said nothing about religion.

    Its so sweet how you keep whining about these supposed ad-homs, though. Considering your recent vomits of hate speech against gay people, which of course includes several posters here, what you are receiving back pales in comparison.

    Not the signature to which I was referring -- I apologize if you didn't just delete the signature I thought I saw at the bottom of your post a moment ago.

    Again with the false accusations and allusions sans detailed specifics about your topically relevant perspective.

    Time to just let you fade into the background, since you're not interested in the slighted about presenting topically relevant perspective, but merely initiating bashing ad homs against those who disagree with you.
    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?

    Saying that I'm under the same restrictions as everyone else is not a statement against ssm. It's just a fact.
    Bearing in mind of course there was a time when you couldn't marry a black WOMAN, at least in some places.
