    If I called someone an asshole or a *uckhead,
    that would be calling them names.

    Looks like most people here vote yes to gay marriage.

    Well, we know you aren't a judge.
    We know you aren't a lawyer.
    And if you ever voiced an opinion like that in jury selection,
    no one would choose you as a juror.


    This is not a case that can be argued in court by quoting the Bible,
    or any other subjective nonsense.
    This is not a case about "behavior" as you oddly call it.
    This is a case about two groups of people:

    1) Heterosexuals
    2) Homosexuals

    Group #1 has rights that group #2 does not.

    Nothing more.
    Nothing less.

    Decades ago the same problem existed with two other groups:

    1) Whites
    2) Blacks


    The same solution will prevail.

    That's how I've always seen it too.

    No... the laws apply to everyone, so it isnt a matter of who's rights, but what's right. And in that regard, again, I dont think people understand the real issue, legalizing or not legalizing homosexual marriage doesnt make much of a difference.

    we are not puppets, we each have control of ourselves and our actions, we do not choose our ethnicity but we choose our actions, so i wont agree that the two are the same. if you are going to define homosexuals vs heterosexuals by the mere existence of their desires, then we'd have to reclassify everyone in a similar manner (by what they desire rather than what they actually do/how they seem to us) and i doubt people would call me a dog for wanting to walk around on all fours because i desire to do so, or sympathize with me because the human world is not designed for such a method of travel, for that matter.

    Yes, but not because the verdict legalized gay marriage (did you somehow miss the thread we had about that?). If you are curious, I would also oppose any subsequent state constitutional amendments that explicitly outlaw gay marriage, but would support an amendment effort that explicitly left the matter up to legislature, where it belongs in accordance with originalist jurisprudence (as I also noted in the Prop 8 thread). Bottom line, I care a lot more about the means than the ends on this (and virtually every other) issue within the context of contemporary American politics.

    Exactly.
