BigBooper: Great.

Clearly the writers of the constitution intended homosexuals to have the same rights as straight people, just like they intended abortions to be a constitutional right.

I wonder what other rights we'll discover.


Hopefully the right for someone to slap some sense into assholes like you. Hopefully in public, too.

All those bacon and shellfish eaters make me sick. And don't get me started on those sick freaks who cotton-polyester blends.

ThrobblefootSpectre: The idea of incentivizing breeding is centuries out of date.


But the idea of incentivizing new taxpayers never goes out of style.

BarkingUnicorn: Most people assume that the Sodomites' gang-rape of visiting angels was a homosexual act. But angels aren't men. :-)

I'm finding myself wondering how it would have worked, at all:

Serious Black: qorkfiend: Dwight_Yeast: ThrobblefootSpectre: But get rid of tax deductions for dependents. The idea of incentivizing breeding is centuries out of date.

Look at our country's birth rate (just fallen to its lowest rate ever) and you may want to rethink that position.

mbillips: steamingpile: What amazes me is some friends of my sister thinks the Republican appointed judges are going to kill it. They vote according to law not personal beliefs but they won't listen. My sister doesn't care but then our family isn't full of assholes who judge her and only want her happy.

Hahahahaha, good one! ::wipes eyes:: Oh, I needed the laugh today.

They do vote based on personal belief, and the current Court is weighted towards people who believe in personal liberties, which is why more or less this same court finally and definitively overturned any and all sodomy laws.

I honestly can't envision Kennedy or Roberts voting in favor of DOMA.

I'll one-up you here. I can't imagine Clarence Thomas voting in favor of DOMA.


Unlike Clarence Thomas, you sir, are neither serious, nor black.

nobodyUwannaknow: Dwight_Yeast: Funk Brothers: DOMA will be taken up, but not Perry v. Brown. Perry v. Brown is a state issue and the Supreme Court needs to keep gay marriage a state issue for now. Besides, there is no constitutional amendment on defining marriage. DOMA puts the equal protection clause into question.

The Supremes have the right and the ability to rule on the constitutionality of a state constitution if it violates the federal one. Why wouldn't they? Prop 8 is unconstitutional for the same reasons DOMA is, and I expect to see a sweeping ruling dealing with the whole mess once their done.

The most recent ruling in the PropH8 case is that homogays should be allowed to marry in California. If SCOTUS declines to take that case, they will approve state sponsored sodomy in California, without even ruling on it.

So do my friends
So do my lovers
So do my heroes


Damn straight, they should! If Prop 8 hadn't been named so weirdly, it totally would have failed and I'd be decorating a cake or catering a reception for a very nice gay couple right now. The only issue would be, which one is Bridezilla? Anything else is none of my business, just as it should be to anyone with even a tiny bit of manners.

lennavan: covering issues from whether married gay veterans can be buried together in a military cemetery

How is this an issue? If you risk your life fighting to defend the country, you should be buried wherever and however the fark you want to be buried and bill the taxpayers.

Goddamn some people are assholes.
