    I can just see you when you're in your nineties . . . "Them damn gays!" and "You fags get off my lawn!" - with your hair in all sorts of crazy Einstein patches between intermittent bald spots, lips pruned and fingers gaunt.

    The kids on the street will think you strange, and their parents convinced you're suffering from dementia.

    It is so encouraging to see the US move forward on social issue's like this one. My lovely daughter and my best friend are both gay women and I just cried when DOMA was overturned. To think that they, who are two of the most decent people I know, couldn't marry who they love was beyond me. Here's to continued forward progress!! (raises imaginary glass)

    Precisely. It was inappropriate and in-your-face.

    SC Justices are supposed to be above that. That's why they're rarely interviewed.
    Remember a few years ago, during a state of the union address, when President Obama misstated a SC decision. One of the justices looked at him and shook his head no. Certain quarters were outraged.
    That's all it took for some to say that that was inappropriate behavior for a SC justice.
    You give up certain privileges when you take on that job. One of them is making political statements.

    I'm glad you characterized what she did as giving the finger, I fully agree with you.

    There's no way, the thought police hate crimes division and the healthcare death panels will end him long before that.

    Actually, that portion of the Code is understood by scholars to refer to male homosexual prostitution. Male homosexual marriage was never legal under Roman law, as two men did by have the connubium required to be validly married.

    That's the problem with this country, shame is no longer present. I wonder how you'd feel if Roberts attended an NRA meeting?

    yeah thought so..

    Integrity much?

    I guess you are referring to it legally, because it is obviously different than a union between a man and woman.

    They have a right to be a human being, so no it wouldn't bother me. It's not like it is a secret anyway. I give them credit for being capable of being as objective as a human being can be when they do their jobs. So yes, my integrity is quite intact.

    IE: there is nothing to be ashamed of if you are gay, if that's what you are implying.

    Well that's a matter of opinion now isn't it? As to your integrity, I'll give you the benefit of doubt but I doubt my instincts are wrong on this one. I've rarely if ever been surprised by a progressive. In fact I can't remember anytime one has surprised me with one iota of a strong character.
