    well if gay marriage is so popular why is it only legal in very liberal states and why when there is a vote of the people of the state gay marriage always loses big time? can you answer me that please?

    Because most people don't vote and really don't give a damn if gays get married. Yet every time gay marriage shows up on a ballot zealots against it show en mass. And that mass is less than 10% of the population.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Big time? Really? Your definition of "losing a vote big time" is losing by less than 10% of a popular vote?

    So now both the judicial system and the legislature is activist? What will you say when same sex marriage is finally approved by a popular vote, that the people are activist?

    We live in representative governments. Forcing every state to have a popular vote on this one issue is insane and wrong. The only reason your side wants the popular vote is because you know that most people don't care enough about this to go out and vote on it unless they are really for it or really against it, which means if left up to the legislature or the judiciary, as it should be, then you guys lose.

    I'm looking forward to the SCOTUS finally ruling that same sex marriage should be allowed in all states and that anything else is discrimination based on sex.

    Agreed. Moderates like Christie and Romney use the civil union as a way to appease to both sides. I don't think they should have anything to do with it. Two gays want to get married? Fine, they have to answer for it when judgement comes, not me.
