    I denounce her for acting without and principle and putting her liberal, un-libertarian agenda above her job.

    Just shows that liberals have no regard for the law they claim to serve unless it suits their agenda - and we're supposed to trust these liberal Supreme Court justices with our Constitution?

    I would summarize her position as a "welcome to my world" kinda deal. I have no problem with it.
    Well liberalism has no concept of morality, they're an "end justifies the means" kind of ideology. Gays have no right to be married and I'm fine with that. Liberal narcissists like her who have nothing better to do with their time but whine about how "persecuted" they are in the freest nation on earth have no credibility with me. I'll support gay marriage once women are allowed to serve in military combat roles. Women are over 51% of the population, gays are only about 5% - so I think this is a much more pressing "civil rights issue" than gay marriage.

    Texas judges aren't required to perform marriages. My concern is that if this judge is an activist on the bench on this issue, what other issues is she being an activist on?

    That's my point - liberals don't care, they just think the end justifies the means. They're so hell bent on this stupid gay marriage issue that there's nothing they won't do. That's how self-righteous they are - they think they're entitled to not have to play by the rules just because of how "right" they are.

    Play by the rules?

    Are you in a position where you MUST perform a marriage ceremony - or something? Is this a right that every member of the judiciary and clergy MUST enable no matter what? Have a playbook? Or is it just *your* defined rules that you want to follow?

    I thought it was the union of two people who wanted to be together - not a political hockey puck.

    Straight couples have a legal right to be married in Texas.

    What if the Judge was refusing to marry interracial couples which technically she has the right to do?

    Doesn't mean that someone MUST perform a ceremony for them if they don't want to.

    I don't think she MUST perform marriage ceremonies if she doesn't want to - we're not talking about her cherry picking, here - but just not doing it *at all* . . . why's that wrong?

    FAIL - she refusing to perform marriages in Texas. Period.

    It's that simple.

    She doesn't need the extra money. But, holy-liberals batman, the small (BIG) Gov Conservatives can't have people thinking for themselves (abortion, contraception) so it's time to get all worked up over nothing...

    Wrong! She's refusing to perform straight marriages. That's discrimination.
