For the record, I guess we've got about 90 days to wait now.
I only caught the tail end of the live feed, but it was enought to be privy to Mat Staver "argument."
As Good As You says about Mat Staver:
In this one, one of marriage equality's biggest foes, Mat Staver, tries his best to present a rational case. We are admittedly biased on the subject, but we totally think he failed:
A portion of his failure as transcribed by me:
JUDGE: But you’re not suggesting that the 32 percent of lesbian couples mentioned in that survey of a few years ago are per se, unfit parents?
MAT STAVER: No, no we’re not, we’re not saying that at all, it’s not part of our argument. But we are saying that the state has a compelling interest in -- what happens differently in opposite sex relations vs. same sex relations, is the offspring of children. That is inevitably a difference that no matter whether we have artificial or reproductive assistance, we can’t get around. The state has a compelling interest to be able to channel that into responsible procreation, to channel that into having these children protected in a way that, same sex relations would not produce. Same-sex relations will not accidentally, unintentionally, in an unplanned fashion, produce children. But opposite sex relations, does have that as an incident of the natural relationship between a man and a woman.
I'm not even sure where to begin to make fun of that...
