Another gay marriage ban will be struck down April 14th. The judge announced his intentions to give the state time to prepare its appeal.

Awesome! Though it just reminds me of the depths that my home state has sunk to that a judge is the only one there who understands equality under the law.

I has nothing to do with "equality under the law."

I know, not to you. Your posts are proof that you support the idea that some people in America are "more equal than others", and that gays do not deserve the same rights provided by the government to straights.

Just another Constitution-lovin' conservative, that's you!

Although we play different games, we all play in the same sandbox, kiddies. That's not going to change.

When will the SCOTUS settle this once and for all, making SS marriage legal in all states so we can move on? It's inevitable

Gays do have the same rights, as I do and any other citizen. You can marry anyone (old enough to marry) of the opposite sex.

The ruling is similar to the Kentucky ruling. It doesn't call for same - sex marriage to occur within the state, however the state must legally recognize same - sex marriages that occurred elsewhere.

Just like how in the miscegenation law era, there really was no discrimination or lack of equal rights, correct?

Because blacks were just as equally unable to marry whites as whites were unable to marry blacks.



Nice try, Tassy, but that argument is so lame and, frankly, ignorant, that nobody on your (dwindling) legal side of this debate brings it up in Court. Would you care to venture a guess why?




[BTW: Imagine marriage existed ONLY for same-sex couples, affording 1000+ benefits and rights, most of which could not be privately contracted for... you're saying you'd just sit back and say, "well at least we're all treated equally in this country!")
