Great, now if they just legalize heroine you gays will be all set.

A little off topic here but do all gays snort coke?


Do all heteros?

That post was awfully confusing to me sorry .



I personally feel gays should be allowed to marry,


If you read the thread further you would also see this is my position too.


The crux of what I was trying to say:

The Supreme Court should have left the issue to the states.

By making a national law compelling everyone to accept
that popular culture
trumps thousands upon thousands of years of a global norm,
it is opening a Pandora's box of unintended consequences.

The rest of my "rant" was talking about the
unintended consequences I forsee.

Thank God these "Back Door Bandits" cannot reproduce. I don't know about adoption laws in the US, but these freaks of nature should not be allowed around children.


There I said it.


And I will fight to protect your right to say it.

It's not pop culture, you just offensively minimized the issue. SCOTUS did their job, they are supposed to interpret the constitution. The 14th amendment now applies to all. Or do you want us to go back to where aa black person wasn;t a person because they were 3/5 of a person? I doubt it. This includes all persons. * pop culture is a weird piece of art that one might understand or not. Like a piece of wood with a bleeding madonna on it. You should be ashamed of yourself.

I think it is hate speech. I am not sure how far I would go to defend it. If I am given a good argument to defend that, constitutionally based, I will.

Equal rights means equal rights.

Hate speech is defined by speech that directly incites violence.

A persons opinion is still equally valid, regardless as to whether you agree with it or not.

Pardon Me, I may not agree with the agenda but, the people you are refering to ARE NOT freaks they are My brothers and sisters and so are You even though we have contrary oppinions.
That is hate speach.
I don't agree with the concept and I have a problem with the whole tax credit thing in the first place, whether one is "straight" or other, but I will not degrade some one on the grounds of belief or cultural adversity.

That negates your assumption that I am a bigot.

originally posted by: JadeStar...I only hope that now that this issue has been resolved that the same Gays and Lesbians (and their Straight allies) support those of us who are Transsexual or Transgender as we continue our struggle for equal treatment in other areas which are just as important for the realization of "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness".


As another woman of past transsexual history, this is my hope as well. Even after forty years, the state I was born in doesn't recognize that we are female and will not change birth certificates. Fortunately, when I got married, I wasn't required to show one by the state I live in now, just a driver's license. Getting a passport, however, is a different story.

Love won today but the struggle for the LGB and especially transsexual and transgender equality marches on. At least I hope it does.

A person any person is still allowed to disagree with gays getting married.

To disagree with it is NOT HATE SPEECH!

To have a different opinion IS NOT HATE SPEECH!

The Supreme Court should have left the issue to the states


What if slave ownership had been left to the states?

Women's rights, and the right to vote?

Some things we need to pull together and do as a country, and equality is one of those things.

I am reiterating that SCOTUS did their job. Or would you like 2 more years of arguing? This was an event that would have happened no matter what.

Totally agreed! I'm having a few beers in honor on the new law! Yeah it's 10 AM, I don't care. Equality in the U.S.! Wooo!

But even with all the jubilation, we have to remember that people are ALLOWED to disagree with the ruling.
People are ALLOWED to be uncomfortable, and dislike this new ruling.

They can post 40 page missives on why this will spell the end of America.
Because they're Americans, and damnit. FREEDOM.

I may be a Japanese Citizen soon, but I've never been more proud to be an American right now.

You are right. Love won. The argument is over. It was a celebratory day for so many. I am sorry that some still can't get over it. I hope you get your passport now.
