Nevada is just to protect the sanctity of Traditional Marriage, which means one man and one woman... drunk, at 3:30 in the morning, at a drive-in chapel, officiated by Elvis.... like in The Bible

I think that the argument has to be against Elvis overload.  What will happen when you have an Elvis marrying an Elvis officiated by Elvis?  Elviseption?

Serious Black: scottydoesntknow: There are also defendant-intervenors in the case, the Coalition for the Protection of Marriage, who argued in their brief that marriage equality was comparable to white supremacy.

LOLWUT?!

I even tried reading the link and it doesn't make sense. How is it, in any way, comparable to white supremacy?

They basically argued that marriage has been naturally defined as a man and a woman, and the anti-miscegenation laws prevented some male-female couples from getting married in defiance of that natural law. Marriage equality laws are similarly in defiance of that natural law by allowing men to marry men and women to marry women.


So. Going for the Pants On Head Retarded Defence of Marriage right out of the gate? That's gutsy...

Yeah... White supremacists tried to "redefine marriage" to be only between a white man and white woman. When homosexuals try to "redefine marriage" to be between any two consenting adults, they're doing the same thing, and are pretty much exactly the same as the KKK.
