    OK. Well, regardless, I'm not worried.

    Whatever you say, CC. I would suggest that this nation is as immoral as any in human history, and just getting worse by the day. We've surpassed the "Glories" of Rome and eventually it will be the demise of this nation; and I for one will stand and cheer when it happens.
    And your "suggestion" is based on your particular morals... and since we know that those morals are not absolute, though you are entitled to your opinion, it is nothing but an opinion.

    If you were providing information, I would have little issue with what you are saying. Thing is, you are NOT providing information. You are presenting your opinions disguised as information... and most of what you say, in that context, is MISinformation.

    There's no way to say, with certainty. However; if opinion polls are to be believed, I'd say sooner, rather than later. By all evidence this is a polarizing issue for an increasingly small, and aging minority. It seems the younger you go, the greater the support for Gay Rights. It's essentially inevitable.

    Legal where? Legal throughout the United States? But I thought that...oh right, nobody takes the Tenth Amendment seriously anymore. Please excuse my forgetfulness.

    Yes, for instance, Tigger insists that there's always a possibility that a woman who has had a hysterectomy could get pregnant.

    Nobody said this meant it would be a federal statute. The question is simply when will all 50 states legalize it, or the courts rule that all states must recognize gay marriages from other states, or rule that gay marriage is a constitutional right.

    If the SCOTUS rules that other states must recognize legal marriages from all other states, then it won't matter if any single state doesn't want SSM or not.

    Another possibility is that they could rule that anti-SSM laws violate equal protection of the 14th Amendment, and tell states that they must allow same sex couples legal marriage unless they change their marriage laws in such a way that sex is not the limiting factor.
