If all men are created equal, how's come only straight men can get married? Or are some less equal than others?

Yeah, and how come only straight couples can make babies? Nature's nothing but a bigoted homophobe.

No no no, don't put words in his mouth. I want to see him state this point himself, so it can be taken apart and belittled on its own merits. ;-D

One day Prop 8 will be viewed as just as silly and as dark of a spot on America's history as Jim Crow laws. Of course there will always be those who believe Jim Crow laws and Prop 8 were a-ok.

How did California of all places pass something like this in the first place :-S :-S :-S

That would be like Sweden passing an anti-white-people law X-I :-S :-S

I thought the point of marriage was to make misery.

Love and misery and elation and pain and infatuation and desire and longing and hate and all are parts of a relationship, and these are not emotions exclusive to heteros. These are human emotions that you and I and everyone under sun feel every day. Saying to someone that they cannot marry the one they love because they're the wrong gender... whose authority made that happen? Where did we come up with this crap?

Love is love is love. Let 'em get married. It ain't going to bother me none.
