    Its just a matter of time before the people of Vermont speak up on this issue, just like they will in NJ when activist legislatures go crazy for votes.......

    Oh NP. It's just a word people use. No-one owns a word.


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    I'm against narrow thinking, including those who think a particular basic stand is narrow-minded despite the fact that it is willing to make exceptions. So, I think homosexuality is neurotic, but denying homosexuals the right to marriage is an invasion of privacy. Then a third factor intervenes: referenda. I think it is the people's right to be wrong, especially since if they had more power than the legislators and the courts, they wouldn't be so narrow-minded. The people have so few chances of asserting the will of the majority on issues that they go overboard in invading privacy; not that they are against privacy, they are really against being powerless.

    Awesome. Perhaps every state should accept gay marriages from states whose citizens chose that path.

    In this case it is not the government directly. The votes represent the will of the sovereign people. And the sovereign people voting for or against are the proper way to decide such issues.

    Above I see that gay marriage is inevitable. So get out there and convince additional people before the next vote.

    What makes you think the SCOTUS will void all gay marriages? The most likely result will be the court will make all states who currently deny marriage benefits to married gay couples will be forced to acknowledge those rights granted by other states. Its call full faith and credit clause. Its why my IN drivers license works in TX, or why your marriage is recognized no matter where you move to.

    Thankfully, we don't have direct democracy because if we did, mob rule would ruin the country. Theres a reason why the SCOTUS exist, and its to strike down laws such as these. There isn't any difference between this law and the one that denied interracial couples from marrying.

    Re: New Hampshire to vote on gay marriage repeal

    Define ironic...



    A man (presumably) who's screen name is "Navy Pride", and who's avatar is an image of Popeye, being so outspoken against the idea of gay marriage.






    Maybe that's breaking the rules, and if so, I apologize in advance....but I just couldn't read all of this, and not say it, lol.

    So you are another wannabe tyrant who prefers the opinion of an unaccountable judge over the votes of the citizens. Um-kay.
    Did the people vote to keep blacks from marrying whites? I cannot recall that they did.
