Wanna bet? It changed today, you just don't
realize it yet.



What I meant is that gays will never again be denied the right to marry. Marriage will continue to evolve, as it always has. (But it will not evolve into legalized polygamy in the U.S., child brides, man on animal marriages, or anything else dumb like that that equality critics predict).

It is now legal for a man to marry two women and them to marry each other for a Social Security survivor benefits bonanza. Polygamy is now legal. Child brides are now legal. There is no legal way to define marriage. With this kind of a ruling it is all wide open.

I could marry
my dog now if I liked.



What on earth is wrong with you people? Typical fear mongering and scare tactics straight from the playbook of those on the right.

Obamacare will lead to death squads.

Gay Marriage means Polygamy, pedophilia and marrying your dog are legal.

Grow up and just stop. Stop worrying about what everyone else is doing. How about you live your life and try to be as happy as you can and let others do the same. THAT, gentlemen is the principal this country was founded on.

I am in a same sex marriage. That is between my partner/spouse and myself. It doesn't take away from your marriage or life one bit. It has absolutely nothing to do with your marriage or arrangement. That is between you EvenBob and Mrs. EvenBob and you, Duffman and Mrs. Duffman.

Chill! Learn to live and let live.

Do you have any references for this or are you just making up lies?

Why do same-sex couples who get married deserve to have more rights than single people? Give equal rights to everyone regardless of marital status. Anything else is discrimination and it absolutely does take away from everyone else who now has to subsidize your benefits

Dogs may have lesser agendas than getting married.

You're looking at it wrong.
Single?
The number of potential marriage partners for you just doubled :-)

More importantly, is there a large group of people pushing for it?



Is that how you think the court works?
Good grief. The court is about the law.
If it's legal for same sexes to get married,
and the court said it is, then it's legal for
3 people to marry. Roberts was correct,
the exact same argument is true for both
scenarios. And it's an easier decision to make
because plural marriage is still practiced
in half the world. Home many wives did
Solomon have? 700?

As usual, the Left has thought nothing out,
it's all about me me me, and what I want.

Someone should take that action. It will never "seriously" be on the table.

Some d-bag political activist like that James O'Keefe guy might try to create some phony lawsuit to bring it into the judicial system, but it'll get laughed out of court.



You know, in theory, there are ways to get things done other than the judiciary. Never seems to work out in practice, but theoretically they're there.

I doubt that the courts will ever take this step. However, seeing acceptance of such relationships in the private sphere building in the subcultures that were ahead of the curve on LGBT issues, I do think it's only a matter of time before they try to get some sort of legal recognition. Whether it builds from there or implodes I don't know. I don't have a crystal ball. The temporal provincialism of your "right side of history" lot aside, I expect the world two hundred years from now, if either of us could see it, would be be as baffling to us as our world to Edmund Burke.

Just another reason for the Radical Islam crowd to use to hate America.

Why is it dumb? Dog f******ers should have the same right to be happy as we all do. If the dog barks twice, he agrees to the marriage. We have already changed the vows, w=so why cant barks be allowed. Just trying to make sure no one is offended and is allowed to be happy.

And if 3 women love a man and all agree to being married, why should they not be happy?

And if anyone isn't sure, I'm fine with all of it. America is changing and it's flag needs to GO too!
