    A murder conspiracy ultimately involves a murder, which is depriving a citizen's rights. Zero rights are being deprived when two sovereign human beings make a voluntary contract with each other.

    The sole basis of the anti-gay marriage argument is religion, and nothing else.

    Sorry, but you come up short on the law. Conspiracy to murder is a chargeable crime even if the murder is never carried out or even attempted.

    Wow, at some point the true nature of homophobia vomits forth.

    Well, that's a relief. For a minute there I thought you were arguing that people who have sex in any way other than missionary position shouldn't be allowed to get married.

    Hmmm. I know lots of homophobes who claim no religious affiliation. In Africa, where I spent many years, homophobia is nearly universal across Christian, Muslim and animist populations. I think it's cultural, not religious.

    You're completely missing the concept altogether, and I think you're doing it on purpose. Conspiracy to murder is the attempt/plan to remove a citizens' right to life.

    Either explain to me how this is similar to two sovereign human beings entering a voluntary contract with each other, or shut the **** up.

    So you name 3 religions to prove your point how homophobia isn't a predominantly religious concept? How many atheists did you meet in africa?

    You asked me how a homophobe libertarian might reason it out. I told you. I don't have to invest anything at all in the quality of the imaginary libertarian homophobe's reasoning. You need to understand your own question before criticizing the answer.

    Except that most human societies have granted marriage as a right to heterosexual couples. They invented that right. Since that right now exists, denying it to some members of a society because they do not fit into the same mold is purely discriminatory. So yes, a right is being deprived.

    The sole basis of the anti-gay marriage argument is religion, and nothing else.
    That's true and it's really funny watching both the pro-8 lawyers and the pro-religious justices on the SC dancing around religion, since they know that religious arguments are a total non-starter when it comes to the law.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
