    His idea of equal protection is that it protects his right to screw people over.

    Interesting. As if you want government to dictate which gender we are "allowed" to have sex with.

    You want to dictate that all women can only marry men. As if you were afraid that given a choice, women wouldn't choose men?

    I think he can't help himself from bonking men unless the government says he can't.

    now watch them tell us they want "small government"... unless of course it's imposing their butt backward "morality" on others.

    Gay marriage is in fact a threat. A threat to our morality and our society. We can't legalize same-sex marriage, we shouldn't !!! The first is that homosexual relationships are not marriage. That is, they simply do not fit the minimum necessary condition for a marriage to exist--namely, the union of a man and a woman.

    Ironically, many years ago, I was listening to a radio interview with the President of the CWA (Concerned Women of America)....she clearly stated that if Gay Marriage was legalized (this was about the time of Prop 22 here in CA) that there would be nothing to stop droves of women from divorcing their husbands to marry other women. I was, like, WTF! Does she really fear that the only think keeping women straight is keeping gay marriage illegal????? :rofl:

    your morality is your own business. and if you think discrimination and bigotry are the only things protecting you, then your "morality" has far greater problems than not abiding by the constitutional requirement of equal protection can ever face.

    out of curiousity, did you whine the same way in the 70's when the court made you wingers stop trying to outlaw inter-racial marriage?

    the arguments were the same then.... and people like you are still trying to interfere with things that are better left to your churches (though I doubt jesus would approve).

    NO my main contention is that this issue is better left up to voters.

    Civil rights are not subject to majority vote...thank goodness.

    (Fewer than 20% approved of interracial marriage in 1967)
