Marriage equality: A question of equality rather than liberty : SCOTUSblog
There are several things that haven't come about yet for this to be logically acceptable by our current mainstream social mindset. Obviously, we have a great deal of idealists as well as a great deal of a variety of others who would willingly/openly accept it... We just aren't there yet.
Of course this question is one of equality under the law.
That's been obvious all along, hasn't it?
And that's exactly wrong. Equal protection analysis should first determine what we're attempting to protect in the first place. The constitutional history of the EPC is due to the unequal application of the law, not the unequal interest certain groups have in the law. The fact is, Prop 8 and every other marriage amendment are neutral on the question of sexual preference. Nothing is stopping gay and lesbian individuals from marrying the way the state currently defines marriage. Arguing that it is would be like arguing that man who would rather have two wives instead of one is being discriminated against because the law doesn't recognize his preference.
There is no such thing as equality, only standards.
We're all not equal, hence equality is a hoop dream.
Besides we all discriminate so in what universe are gays special when it comes to that?
I've had three marriages, there is no liberty with many women when you marry them, you become a wagge slave.
Equality, women have all the pussy and half the monies. How is that equal for a man?
What is you obsession with this issue? Do you enjoy looking like a clueless idiot?
Gay citizens are no more special than *people like you* but we are no less either. If *people like you* have the right to civil marriage, so should gay people.
Which they already do.
In some states, yes. Nationally, no.
