    1. Truely the gov has his head up his ass. Gays wwant to join and support the institution of marriage being wrecked by str8 people with a national 53% divorce rate

      Gov is doing the old “blaming the victim when he etc is the victimizer. Another reason for all to leave any religion that doesnt at least from the top people say “gay civil law marriage is fine by me. Regardless of whetther those religions do ceremonies for gays.

    “…..argued that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage serves a legitimate purpose – to preserve opposite-sex marriage.”
    Oh yeah. Right, because allowing same sex couples to marry, would so prevent opposite sex couples from tying the knot.
    These so called excuses really are pathetic.

    1. They really are, aren’t they? Do these opponents REALLY think that straight couples are all of a sudden going to stop falling in love with each other, getting married, stop having straight sex and stop producing children just because a few gay guys and girls are going to get hitched each year? If they do think that then their logic and rationality is at fault somewhere. I truely believe that most of their ‘arguments’ against gay marriage boil down to the fact they believe gay men and women are having ‘icky’ sexual relations and therefore they don’t want to share a social institution with those ‘icky’ people. It is the ‘urgh’ factor and about maintaining straight privalege.

      Homophobia and biphobic ‘arguments’ about not just gay marriage but gays and bisexual people in general really amount to the ‘urgh’ factor and nothing else.

  3. I don’t get it. Are they saying that if marriage is made available to same-sex couples, they’ll be tempted to ditch their spouses and go gay? That implies they are currently living a lie and are suppressing their homosexuality. How bizzarre is that?

    Again, all this proves is that the hetero identity sure must be fragile, and that humans sure must be stupid if they can’t figure out who they are without some authority telling them what to do and be. This insults all of us.

    Do they think this is still the era where the peasantry are not educated and the aristocracy create and enforce social norms?

  6. Banning same sex marriage will preserve opposite sex marriage? Wouldn’t banning divorce be more effective?

  7. Nevada has a “legitimate state interest” in maintaining marriage as between one man and one woman.

    Oh, the spectacular irony of this statement in light of Nevada’s history in providing the first “quickie” divorces, Reno once being called the US’s Divorce Capital. Indeed I believe the state’s initial prosperity owed much to making the dissolution of marriage easy and affordable.
