    Re: Lesbian arrested for seeking marriage license in North Carolina

    Under the law she should have been arrested. She violated the law and failed to respect a public place. This type of protest isn't going to help anyone. I understand her feelings and sympathize with her nor do I think she is a bad person for doing this, but under the law what she did was illegal regardless of if people think SSM should have been banned in NC or not.

    Yes, but he'll have to consummate the marriage.

    Under the law, yes. It's called civil disobedience for a reason.

    Could a un-Constitutional law be considered illegal?

    Yes, but I don't think it's unconstitutional for a state to define marriage in regards to gender.

    She refused to leave a public place when asked to leave. From my understanding doing so is illegal. If she was arrested for simply filling out the form then that is definitely wrong. But if she camped out or was disruptive then she should have been arrested after refusal to leave.

    With your OP you lied about why this woman was arrested. She was arrested for refusing to leave a government office, she was not arrested for requesting a same-sex marriage license. Having set the theme of your thread as lies and deception yourself, this is all you will receive.

    If you don't like silly games, I suggest you demonstrate an ounce of integrity and/or honesty the next time you make an OP.

    So, to address your post:
    I did not say people do not have the right to marry, and you knowingly lie when you suggest otherwise. It was argued that heteros can marry anyone we love. We can not. There are a number of restrictions heteros have to abide by, the sex of a spouse being just one of them. Maybe we should allow SSM, but that doesn't mean anyone is under any more or less restriction than anyone else.

    Yeah, it's not like real civil rights activists ever refused to leave a building due to their rights being denied

    And that's the whole point of civil disobedience.

    So then you would be opposed to sit-ins staged by civil rights activists, then.
