    Women weren't slaves. Your hyperbole is laughable.
    I take it you mean American jurisprudence, which also until a few decades ago, defined marriage to mean that men owned all the property.

    Is that what you're longing for again?

    I take it you're aware that in the Old Testament, polygamy was the norm. But I suspect you want to gloss over that.

    That's the thing about Bible thumpers, they don't know what's inside the thing they're thumping.

    We have a ton of experience with the effect of traditional marriage on kids.
    Back to this argument. We also have plenty of experience with the effects of SSM on children. As positive as those with traditional marriage. So, both Scalia's... and your question has been answered.

    So I believe the point had something to do with redefining traditional marriage to satisfy a certain population demographic when, in truth, the demographic in question can enter into contracts with each other any time they want without redefining marriage for everyone else.
    If two gays marry that marriage does not effect YOUR marriage in any way. If you think it does, prove it.
