    You sound a lot less confident than you did earlier in the thread.

    At the very least, we can agree the supreme court has not demonstrated that it is hostile to gays or gay marriage. None of their past rulings indicate otherwise.

    How can you possibly be 100% certain?

    I am sure gay haters from 40 years ago were 100% certain gay marriage would never be legal in the US.

    The majority could overrule the judges if they wanted to. Judges cannot stop a Constitutional amendment.

    Either they don't agree with you or they are indifferent.

    Who exactly decided that was implicit?

    The fact that this is the only way humans have reproduced so far is not evidence that most people would consider any other process to result in something that is not human. You seem to be projecting your own assumptions as if they were objective fact.

    You honestly think a human clone (as an example) would not be recognized as human by our laws or our society?

    You seem to be saying there is precedent for accepting someone who did not originate from a man and a woman as human.

    Probably. And they will be correct to do so.

    And they will likely succeed. Better brace yourself...it's likely you will be in the minority again.

    SCOTUS will declare SSM legal in all 50 States about 19 months before whomever the new POTUS is will be sworn in. It won't even be a campaign issue in 2016.

    Didn't Jeff Goldblum warn us about this over 20 years ago?

    Dr. Ian Malcolm: John, the kind of control you're attempting simply is... it's not possible. If there is one thing the history of evolution has taught us it's that life will not be contained. Life breaks free, it expands to new territories and crashes through barriers, painfully, maybe even dangerously, but, uh... well, there it is.
    John Hammond: [sardonically] There it is.
    Henry Wu: You're implying that a group composed entirely of female animals will... breed?
    Dr. Ian Malcolm: No. I'm, I'm simply saying that life, uh... finds a way.

    They've done everything short of putting out a press release to tell us how they intend to rule. They would have approved the stay if it wasn't already a done deal.

    That it is unnatural is just one argument against homosexual sex.

    The implication was that here are other arguments against homosexual sex.

    From the OP's link:

    Dr Jacob Hanna, of the Weizmann Institute, acknowledged that it is possible to use skin stem cells from two adults of the same gender to make human egg and sperm cells.

    Funny, they still have to use the heterosexual process though.

    You implied that your usage of the nature fallacy was a valid argument.

    There isn't any valid arguments at all though. Nice try.

    Go on then. What valid reason is there? Does it break your leg or pick your pocket?
