vernonFL: 1955: This school desegregation decision will mean blacks have equal rights in all 50 states!

Pretty soon white waitresses will have to serve negros at lunch counters and Negroes will be able to sit wherever they want on the bus.


And, republicans will have to act like human beings! (talk about an acting job)

Mike Chewbacca: CPennypacker: Pincy: CPennypacker: Yesterday was my second anniversary, but because of this decision, our traditional marriage was destroyed. We were forcibly auto-divorced and now I'm living in sin with a donkey. Thanks a lot SCOTUS.

I can't decide who has it worse, you or the donkey?

Definitely the donkey

Haha, Serious Black, you're so funny!


Go shove an unlubricated broomstick up your rectum.

TemperedEdge: Hey. You want to fix a budget problem? Simple solution: Tax the church. They've been getting a free ride for far too long, and not just in American history. I'm all for it, whether they break down and accept marriage equality or not.


They shoulda been taxed all along.  In face, I'm for the "superstition double tax"!  If you believe in superstitious nonsense, you should be taxed double.  We don't want to encourage nonsense in our society, do we?  Double-Tax all churches!!!

Bloody William: 2 grams: 12349876:
The point you're leaving out is that many Conservatives want NO RECOGNITION IN ANY FORM of homosexual relationships.  It's why it was CIVIL UNIONS in Vermont that caused them to go crazy with all of the state constitutional amendments.  And it's why many of those amendments have language like Texas

(a) Marriage in this state shall consist only of the union of one man and one woman.(b) This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage.

Got it. We need the SC to overide the state as unconsitutional.

See? I did learn something today.

Christ, you're thick.

After the SC ruling, that part of Texas' law will simply not hold up. They would be fools to pursue it, and if they did fight it in court, guess what? THE SC WOULD RULE THEIR LAW UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

Supremacy Clause. Read it, for fark's sake.


Wow. you really come across as a dick.

Goodbye.

lockers: GhostFish: Okay, I'll admit it.

Breeders might not be able to make any church perform their marriages, but we gays can.

You are the worst sort of person. Leave it to the fringe to make people feel justified in their bigotry.


You on the other hand managed to single-handedly derail half the thread by taking him too seriously. If you'd read the whole post, you might have noticed its satirical nature. A phrase like:

"Satan called up the leaders of the Gay Agenda and told us we had to start using our mind-control powers for things other than seducing the occasional drunk fratboy."

is what people call "tongue-in-cheek".

You say that like it's a BAD thing.

Surprised that nobody in this thread has so far posted the story of Chastity Bumgardner. A church in Ohio refused to hold her wedding there because it was an interracial couple. As far as I know, the church didn't face any legal consequences for that.

Shakers don't perform weddings at all.  (Not coincidentally, there aren't very many Shakers anymore.)

TheMysticS: Um, I'm a Breeder and I don't care. I've mostly heard it in fun, like I think Ghostfish was going for.

If I hear it in a derogatory connotation, I just figure the 'your momma' would work.

Unless I'm being harassed by a roving gang of test tube, lab grown babies.
Then, I might be offended.


I'm a heterosexual and I find breeder to be offense.  Even if I don't plan to have kids homosexuals refer to us in the same term like we were a bunch of porch monkeys.

Don't you get it, man?  This was the next stumble down the slippery slope after interracial marriages!  Clearly, this is snowballing out of control, and the only way to solve the problem is to go back in time and ensure that marriage is never invented at all!

Thanks, Obama!

lawboy87: The government's granting a license and legally recognizing a gay couple as being "married" imposes NO DUTY upon any religious or private social organization to recognize them as being married.


Not quite true, as I understand; if they hire the sinner (whether that sin is an interracial or a gay marriage), they won't be able to deny spousal benefits offered to non-sinful spouses. But the ministerial exception makes it pretty easy to just leave such sinners unemployed.

Oh look, yet another thing bigots are proving they are too stupid to understand.

Seriously, if there is one thing all these various butthurt displays are showing, it's that bigots are in fact very, very stupid people, baffled by and wildly delusional about the everyday mundane events of life. How do these people even put their pants on right?

GhostFish: Okay, I'll admit it.

Breeders might not be able to make any church perform their marriages, but we gays can. We have special powers of persuasion.
We just haven't used them until now because we like getting strung up, dragged behind cars, and kicked in the teeth.

But a decade or so ago, Satan called up the leaders of the Gay Agenda and told us we had to start using our mind-control powers for things other than seducing the occasional drunk fratboy.
So now we're dead set on forcing everyone to engage in our weddings, where the food and music will actually be good. Unlike the shiat shows you straights put on.
It's all part of our master plan to demoralize you and make you wish that you had chosen to be gay.


I have been to one trangender wedding and a Jewish lesbian wedding in the last year and I have to admit you people put on a great show.

What? I can't say you people anymore?

If you ever get invited to a Jewish lesbian wedding you go. Don't even think about it.

Eventually, everyone will be married to everyone else. Then we'll all get divorced. Just think of the chaos when everyone is everyone else's bitter ex.

s2s2s2: No church is required to perform weddings. PERIOD.


Precisely backwards.

"Wedding" is the ceremony, not the legally binding contract.  I won't even get into how your choice of verb should have informed you about the bassackwardness of what you just typed.

Correctly stated: "No church is required for a couple to enter into a marriage."

As one with an ardent avocation as a hairsplitter, I'm sure you can appreciate the distinction.
