  •  Don't the appellants have standing? (0+ / 0-)

    I thought these guys were just defending it. I believe only those bringing the case have to have standing. I could be wrong, as IANAL.

    •  Yeah, IANAL either (2+ / 0-)

      and I don't even play one on TV.

      It's confusing -- just like the whole anti-marriage equality team. If marriage is supposedly about procreation, why is my 21+ year marriage without children allowed to stand? And if not, then why do we care who marries who as long as consenting adults are involved?

      •  And see, I don't find marriage equality (0+ / 0-)

        confusing at all. There are those who try to confuse us by throwing in some supposed biblical stuff (which I'll never understand), but the US isn't a theocracy. There are those who say they somehow marriage equality will impact their marriages. Now, that's really hard to understand. If people would just mind their own damn business, marriage equality would be a non-issue. It would just be an obvious right.
