    Oh you thought I was quoting from Loving? No. I use the quote box, change the text color and font, and provide a link when I quote something. What you read was in regular text, which means those were my words, not SCOTUS's words. It's just my opinion, based on my reading of the ruling and how SCOTUS arrived at their decision. I never represented it as anything else.

    The forum member What If made a random comment, I gave an opinion, you disagreed, and life went on. That's all that happened.

    What happens to property on someones death that isn't married, has no children and doesn't have a will? Hint: the state does something with it. Do you know what it is? Your silly claim that it just sits there forever unsold is ignorance and worst yet shows a clear lack of ability to think that maybe it has happened millions of times over and there is certain plan put into motion when it happens. I can't believe you didn't know this. Even if there wasn't, this idea that the government needs to run marriage because current law depends on it is unbelievably bad logic.

    In any event, the state takes the property in such a case. Duh..

    That's the state being in the marriage business, because the state has to first confirm that there is no next of kin before it can do anything with the property.

    If the state acts in good faith, and then an heir pops up, the state has to make restitution.

    The obvious truth that homosexuality is a birth defect?

    BWHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    You have to love the inventiveness of homophobes.

    Futurity.org – Survey: How kids of same-sex parents fare as adults

    Your one sample has a few problems: Controversial Gay-Parenting Study Is Severely Flawed, Journal's Audit Finds - Percolator - The Chronicle of Higher Education
    Since it was published last month, the study, titled “How Different Are the Adult Children of Parents Who Have Same-Sex Relationships?,” has been the subject of numerous news articles and blog posts. It has been used by opponents of same-sex marriage to make their case, and it’s been blasted by gay-rights activists as flawed and biased.

    The study’s author, Mark Regnerus, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Texas at Austin, even made the cover of The Weekly Standard. In the illustration, he is strapped to a Catherine wheel that’s being tended by masked torturers.
    <snip>
    Among the problems . . . identified is the paper’s definition of “lesbian mothers” and “gay fathers”—an aspect that has been the focus of much of the public criticism. A woman could be identified as a “lesbian mother” in the study if she had had a relationship with another woman at any point after having a child, regardless of the brevity of that relationship and whether or not the two women raised the child as a couple.

    . . . that fact alone in the paper should have “disqualified it immediately” from being considered for publication.

    In his audit, he writes that the peer-review system failed because of “both ideology and inattention” on the part of the reviewers (three of the six reviewers, according to Sherkat, are on record as opposing same-sex marriage)
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    No, this has very little to do with marriage and who runs it. This is a matter of finding heirs which don't even need to be children, but parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, etc and the chances this ever comes up where there is none to be found is rare. I'm sorry, but if you want to argue for the state running marriage you will need to find a better example.

    You 'thinking' it, don't make it true.

    It's one of those you have to see it, but when you do you know it things.

    So you have well-functioning "gaydar"?
