    Not quite. The slaves were enshrined in the Constitution as 3/5ths of a person.

    The unborn don't have it that good.

    There aren't generally children involved but I see what you are getting at. Someone who's job it is would have to allow children to be picked up by their parents, I have no problem with SS parents having adopted kids (and from other threads I'm pretty sure you don't have issue with it either) but even if that person did we all deal with all sorts of people regardless of comfort level, it's part of life.

    Right, and I also have no problem with this. My only point is to demonstrate that another person's marriage can "force" you to do something. Even if you agree with it, you are affected.

    Some people take issue with being so "forced", hence their objection.

    Yes, yes it is.
    But the same reason to institute SSM is the reason to institute opposite sex marriage.

    I fixed it for you
    Like I said in reality you aren't affected anymore than if you are a FORD person and you neighbor has a Chevy, big woop, get over it, america is free.

    Damn women being able to talk in public THAT affects me
    Damn minorities being able to use the same water fountain I do, THAT affects me.
    Damn cut girl going out with an ugly guy THAT affects me.

    sounds like a bunch of preschoolers crying that their kick ball is red and they really really really wanted the blue one. It hwurts my wittle fweelings that I have to sit here wiff my wittle red ball and he has a bwooo ballllllllll.waaaaaaaaaaaaaa


    LOL sorry Im not buying, if you feel affected by OTHER peoples rights liberties and freedoms and would rather discriminate against them based on things of race, gender, sexuality, etc the issue is YOU not their freedoms and what they are doing.

    And no im not saying you as in you specifically Jerry just making a general statement.

    Christ on crutches!!! I really have to stop multitasking and slow down when I type.
    Maybe it was just the person I was responding too and how little importance it had

    I mean to say:

    As was already posted, the reasoning would be the same for allowing any man/woman couple to marry. Since there is no distinction of those couples having to be able to or even to want to procreate, and the ability to naturally procreate is the only actual difference between all same sex couples and many opposite sex couples.

    And, I have explained, in detail, how discrimination can be OK. Like I said before, you need context when you try to post what someone else has said. I have legal basis for my discrimination, that even the SCOTUS has held up. So far, there has been no rational, legal argument to discriminate against homosexuals.

    And then you must also think that marriage for a man and woman of two different races is not a right? There is no reason to actually endorse marriages between the races, is there? Afterall, marriage isn't a right (according to you), so why didn't the SCOTUS simply strike down laws that made it illegal for interracial couples to cohabitate. Why did they actually need the legal marriage?
