This is more concise:
States can ban SSM and not recognize them from other states
States can ban SSM but have to recognize them from other states
States cannot ban SSM but do not have to recognize them from other states
States cannot ban SSM and have to recognize them from other states
No ruling, lack of standing
This is more concise:
2.) never claimed it "would go away" in fact I made note how examples of bigotry in the past still excist but they dont matter and people dont really care
also religion will never fade (in regards to views as respectable and non respectable) anytime soon like racism and bigotry
3.) correct but the reality is equal rights is winning and the bigots can hang on and cry as much as they want they are losing and exposing themselves
'...Justice Anthony Kennedy said that marriage has been understood as the union of one man and one woman for "millennia-plus time," according to an Associated Press reporter in the courtroom. "It's very difficult for the court to say 'We know better,'" ...."
It was clear that Kennedy, at least, was somewhat uncomfortable about the narrow definition that Bursch was insisting on giving to marriage....."
Justice Kennedy, although he made it very clear, at the outset of her argument, that he was genuinely fretting about a sweeping decision that constitutionalized same-sex marriage. Colorfully, he said he could not count the number of zeroes there were in a millennia, noting that that was how long opposite-sex marriage had been the only accepted version.....
It looks like Kennedy is saying that the term "marriage" would need to be "redefined" to include same sex couples in order for SSM to be constitutional and he seems reluctant for the court to do that.
The court didn't have to "redefine" the "definition" of "marriage" in Love v Virginia because it was still between one man and one woman.

So you're saying that Justice Kennedy is wrong? Because he says the definition of marriage has always been between opposite sexes. Even polygamy and inter-racial marriages were still between opposite sexes. So either he is wrong or he is using a different definition than you.
One of you will end up here next!
