    Which part don't conservatives do? They don't talk about the "will of the people" regarding prop 8? They don't constantly refer to various Obama administration actions as unconstitutional?

    You were trying to point out some sort of hypocrisy, so I did the same.

    Just curious, which God might that be? One of them? All of them? Your God? Some other guy's God? What if a person does not believe in God . . . do they not have a say?

    you think this game will work dont you LOL it failed posts ago when your made up fantasy was exposed. That was the end and now your deflection is failing

    the question was answered and ill answer it AGAIN

    here was the answer in post 361

    so to fill in the blanks, rights not to be unfairly discriminated against, equality protections and marriage would all be an issue

    NOW if you would stop dodging and tell us all why you think theres a logical reason you think marriage will be forced or are you trying to pretend that didnt happen and you didnt shoot a huge blank on that already

    True. The opponents of marriage equality are losing the war in every arena: The Courts and even in the realm of public opinion. The bigots of the world are desperately clinging to the last vestiges of discrimination but it is inevitable that they will fail. That is why Scalia was so vitriolic in his dissent.

    We will have to wait until 2014 to see if wimpy congress gets any courage by infusion of fresh blood.
    Many felt it was morally wrong for interracial couples to get married (many, many more than those who are currently against same sex marriage). The SCOTUS still struck down those bans and they still remained in office. Your threats are foolish.

    Re: SCOTUS blog: DOMA Unconstitutional

    The people against SSM lack logic and reason. Saying that God hates fags is no different than taking personal ownership and saying you hate them. And actually, using God as a smoke screen for your own bigotry is an insult to every person of faith on this planet who works hard to love their neighbor. Shame on people who invoke the word "God" to justify their hatred. Take responsibility for the way YOU feel and stop projecting.

    The striking down of DOMA was only logical. Either the States get to decide or they don't.

    A little bit of knowledge for the deniers
    Most Americans support gay marriage, up from 32 percent a decade ago | al.com

    An April poll conducted by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News found that 53 percent of Americans favored allowing same-sex couples to wed. Ten years earlier, support for gay marriage was at just 32 percent, the Journal notes.

    Says the Journal's David Wessel: "Attitudes toward gay marriage have changed faster than attitudes about any other social issue in recent American history."
    At the time of the Loving decision in 1967, more than 60% of Americans were against interracial marriage. The Virginia judge who first ruled against the Lovings said at the time of his decision:
    "Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix."
    Today only in Mississippi do more people favour banning interracial marriage than support it.

    So when yobarnacle writes, "many think and feel similarly as I do" he is correct but sadly for him and other bigots, many does not translate into most. The trends are on the side of those who don't think any Americans should be kept from enjoying the same rights and privileges as other Americans.

    Re: SCOTUS blog: DOMA Unconstitutional

    A breaking report on the reaction to the Supreme Court ruling:

    I hear gunshots. There's a mob of hoodlums down the street, on rollerblades with pink headbands, pulling couples out of their homes and forcing them to get gay married at gunpoint. The cops say there's nothing they can do. Good thing Allison took the car today, the lady two doors down from us has Texas plates on her car and they're blasting her house with lolotov glitterbombs. I ran to the window, opened it up and put Party Giraffe on full display, festooned as he is with a shimmering tinsel boa and a pink lightsaber. They'll know who's side I'm on.
