    As soon as the State passed a ban, they now have to defend that ban. The type of ban they passed is indefensible because it exposes itself to 2nd and/or 3rd tier Constitutional scrutiny. With a ban against a demographic, the State now has to demonstrate a harm caused by that demographic, which it can't.

    All pro-SSM ever did was run around getting people worked up over equality, but they had no winning legal argument which could accomplish anything until the state banned gay-marriage.

    Each piece is equal in value to every other piece.....they're just not the same.

    We are told diferent things because we are not the same people. Because we are all equal, we are all guided to effect the same result: to win the game.

    Pro-SSM and anti-SSM are both arms of the same governement who needs us divided and in-fighting so that we don't pay atention to the real world.

    The King is not equal to a pawn. The Queen also has special privileges.

    Oh... well, it is just my take on it after being raised with no religion. That, and some of the findings of the Dead Sea Scrolls seemed to have affirmed this.

    Correct, for if they were equal the game would be over once the first piece was captured no matter which one it was... King, pawn or Harry Potter

    Depends on if the pawn is part of a checkmate or manipulation to move the King. It's imposable to just line the pieces up and say "this one is worth more" because you have to account for where those pieces are in the game.

    It's not the job of the pieces to make their own rules and do as they please, because the opponent on the other side of the table is a grandmaster while the pieces are, well, just pieces.

    Like chess pieces, relationships are different.

    It is pretty much universally understood that the king and queen are the two most valuable pieces on the chess board. Ignore that all you like though...

    I said "believe", not "think". Very different meanings there.

    We were also cursed with predictive behavioral patterns, negative influences and personality faults. You're point?
