    Considering this controversy started from a comment by a heterosexual politician, I find this comment quite intriguing.

    Probably not since the nation is moving closer everyday to full accepting them and their sexuality.

    No, CNN is, and they tell you everybody else is, and you believe them.

    People by and large don't care what gay people do, but that's not good enough. Gay people need to be on stage in full acknowledgment like divas. They must be in your face with it as much as possible. They want to HEAR you call them married husbands or married wives. "Say it! Say it!"

    It's really, really odd. People just roll their eyes and laugh at them.

    If you're married, I hope you don't shove it in people's faces at dinner parties.

    Actually, Gallup and Pew in addition to the repeal of DADT, several court decisions, the President's stance on SSM and the Democratic Party's decision to make SSM an official part of their platform tell me that the nation is moving closer to acceptance. I guess you could also add to that the younger generations who are less prejudiced in addition to all the gay/bisexual people who've come out to their families and increased direct knowledge of non-heterosexuality as telling me that too. CNN isn't even in there, particularly since I rarely watch it or other cable news.

    One day video of the bigots showing up at Chick-Fil-A yesterday will show up in a documentary about homophobia and backwards thinking in the year 2012 -- like the black and white news reels from the 1960s showing KKK and police with firehouses, we'll look back on the bigots misusing the bible to justify their own hatred and think: "Look at those people. How disgusting. Thank God we're not like that any more."

    Your Star answered you pretty well. It wasn't judicial activism. It was proper judicial review. You can't break laws because you don't like something. If the Constitution says you can't discriminate, then you can't. Frankly, it's none of your buisness who I marry. And only I can define and honor my marriage. The majority has no role in it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I only stretch things to reasonable lengths which is to say, I don't stretch them at all.

What is the use of having laws if they may change without any legislative acton? If the courts and the executive are free to "interpret" them AS THEY PLEASE then they have no real weight at all. There are well defined prodecures for making laws and amending the constitution for good reason, and those procedures/laws should be respected as well.
