    Awaiting the Supreme Court's gay marriage decisions [W:641]

    The Supreme Court is expected to hand down several rulings Monday, two of which have the potential to drastically expand the rights of gays and lesbians in the country.
    This could make for the worst Monday in history. Its Monday, have 5 days of work ahead of me, and...oh yeah...I'm a second class citizen. Anxiously awaiting...

    The government doesn't discriminate against gays...

    Gays just want to be a "protected class" and have MORE rights than anyone else..

    I find anyone who believes the government should protect them from scrutiny to be obnoxious..

    Nonsense. Having equal rights is not protected.

    My question is, WHEN did failure to recognize same-sex marriage BECOME unconstitutional? It wasn't 1789, right?

    Try equal protection under the law. Most cite the 14th amendment.

    Is there any law stopping a gay from marrying?

    So it became unconstitutional in 1868? Do you really believe that?

    Ha, the Equal Protection Clause justifies just about anything and everything.... The Fourteenth Amendment should be repealed and re-wrote in its entirety.

    That trick doesn't fly. If you could marry the same sex but not the opposite, you'd understand better. But being silly doesn't help you.
