    I also believe we must impeach Antonin Scalia for protection from his inhumanity.

      You'd have to be pretty dense to not understand what is referred to in that question.

      And even if was too vague for anyone, it's still a legitimate question: Why do married couples get more rights than non-married couples?

      I'm still waiting for a reasonable answer to this from Libs.

      •  State defined marriage is hardly libertarian. (4+ / 0-)

        The right of any consenting individuals to contract as they see fit is a principle generally recognized by libertarians.

        •  That may be true (0+ / 0-)

          But it's certainly not in any libertarian that I've known.

            Because there are some westerners who I would describe as anti-state who are also incredibly bigoted.  The vast majority of self-described libertarians I know are absolutely opposed to sodomy laws, marriage restrictions, efforts to push homosexuality out of sexual education, etc.  I haven't really known an anti-gay libertarian.

            My uncle, a small l libertarian and a big R Republican, likes the idea of same-sex marriage precisely because he hopes it will result in the government getting rid of state sanctioned marriages.  It is a pipe dream of his, but there you have it.

        There are many reasons a male/female couple could be descriminate against.

        South Carolina took 103 year to recognize my sister's "one man/one woman" marriage just because too damn many idiots don't like her husband's skin.

        Results count for more than intentions do.
