<quoted text>That might be a good explanation if I only quoted a raw quantity of overturned decisions, but that is not what I stated. I stated a percentage of cases being overturned. beibg that I am only considering percentages, the quantity of cases is totally immaterial. Whether it is is 7 of 9 cases or 76 out of 100 cases, over 75% is a very high overturn rate on appealed cases. The Supreme Court has also not yet stated that it would not hear the California case.
You do realize that's a good thing right? If the Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage equality it's not just legal in California but the entire USA. Just like Loving v Virginia all over again.

Directly above, you give us reasons why homosexuality and religion cannot coexist.
Good post.

There is no gender equality right; the ERA failed. We've already won this, back in the '70s. Where just waiting for the left to catch up.
The ERA would have been redundant, the 14th Amendment already gives citizens equal protection.
And the fact you feel denying people equal rights is a "win" says a lot about you.

That is circular BS. Give us an actual difference between men and women, and tell us why that difference is important enough to deny men and women equal rights.

Wanna know what is REALLY telling about Prof Dipshit's views? There are WAY more women dressed as vaginas in the pride parades than men in penis suits. I think seeing a man in a penis suit sends him into fits of homosexual panic... very typical of closet queens.

You've edited out the balance of my post, because you're a dumb tw*t. Is it my fault logic is your enemy, as well as gravity? The "homosexual lifestyle" is such a flimsy premise, that you know your hobbit behind is too fat to jump off from it.

I wouldn't know, Tumbleweed Head.
Dude, if you don't know why are you pretending to know?

You're promoting a lifestyle a Christian would have to become a Hindu to follow yet you don't know why anyone would do this.

What kind of sense does that make, fella?

You either obey law and act morally or you don't. We are nuanced enough to want homosexuals treated like everyone else, not pandered to as a mascot victim group.

This is section 2:
2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

Well, if you were to claim religion and murder don't coexist, you'd be wrong.

Where it mentions rights for males and not females, just as it lists rights for those over twenty-one years of age and citizens, not those under twenty-one years of age and non-citizens.

Our Constitution recognizes male and female as unequal, there is no right to gender equality just as there is no right to child equality or non-citizen equality. Read the words, the law is written in black and white.

BTW, the Vice President, Joe Biden, voted to enact DOMA into law when he was in the Senate. He helped make the Defense of Marriage act into law and he's running with Obama in November. I hope you can remember that.

Let's hear from you straight Christians who think homosexuality and traditional Christianity can coexist.

I'm especially interested in how you fellows reconcile Leviticus and Sodom & Gomorrah with the homosexual lifestyle.

The fact is, the closet thing I know of to Sodom are gay bath houses.

But prove me wrong. Tell me why Saturday Night at the local gay bath house has nothing in common with how gays used to get their kicks at Sodom and Gomorrah.

School me, brother.

There you go again, spitting out lies like you did wads, way back when. Though I would rather they put their minds towards empirical evidence, many gays are Christian. A lot of church denominations are okay with gay people. Also, stop calling it a "lifestyle". That's like saying blue-eyed people are living a lifestyle. There are no five pillars of the blue-eyed, and gay people don't pray to San Fran five times a day. The gay lifestyle, like your deities, are a myth.

Because a white man, in a night gown, giving birth to himself so that he could kill himself, in order to forgive something that he made a sin totally makes sense.

What do your parents really think of you... knowing that you swallow the semen emissions of men and engage in corn holing for kicks and fun??
I bet they are ashamed of you, New Castle swish.

Oh, is the word "lifestyle" a forbidden word now?

You fellows seem to add new forbidden words every day.

Why is "lifestyle" now a forbidden word?

I mean, honestly, fella, do you really think when you go to the bathhouse and do what you do, you're acting like a Christian?
