    Yes i know, that's my point entirely. I'm *mocking* the "activist judges" mentality and political ploy that set off the bans nationwide. This farce really took off following the MA decision: Goodridge v. Department of Public Health - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    This has continued for a decade now, when some like the texas governor took shots at the SC for *doing their job*, striking down a blatantly unconstitutional law.

    Yeah right, "we" just prefer that "activist judges" make these decisions, rather than the thoroughly inadequate and unqualified masses. Every 'liberal' i know can point to at least a handful of awful SC decisions (dred scott etc), but they certainly have a better track record than your average joe at protecting civil rights.

They themselves are the bigots who judge and apply untrue values and beliefs towards their opposition, they are intolerant of their views and would try to desecrate democracy to silence them from legally being able to enforce them, and they litter their "arguments" with self-righteous comparisons to their opposition being like racists against inter-racial marriage or some other strawman. Sure, bigotry, hate, and intolerance exist within individuals on both sides of the issue but it is an act and perpetuation of such actions to say that those who disagree are all bigots, uneducated, and any other negative trait that gets commonly thrown at people for not supporting SSM.

    It's pure self-righteous hypocrisy and it's a shame that it's so common.

    yeah its convenient for one to just simply say i don't BELIEVE this is a equal rights issue or a civil rights issue so im against it or it should be left up to the states.

    yep just like people said the same thing against minorities and women etc
    just like interracial marriage also.

    its a smoke screen that is as transparent as a newly cleaned car windshield. Everybody sees right through it

    1.) homosexuals can not change

    2.) under that broken logic a person can change religions should we stop protecting that?


    and once again your lack of intellect and education on this topic is severely exposed. You lose to facts again with another failed and logical void embarrassing post which got destroyed.

    let me know when you want to repeat this process, you are getting good at it.

    Gays can change what? If you're referring to their sexual orientation...that's simply not true. Where did you get that information?

    As a law student, I'm surprised that you feel a county clerk has such authority, and can't help think that your view would mysteriously change if the clerk held views you disagreed with

    Why do people keep pointing out over and over that the clerk can't appeal. Of course the clerk can't appeal. I wasn't saying that the clerk would be doing it. I said that this would be a good public catalyst for a court case about the law itself. The people who have standing are the ones whose licenses are now being denied. Crazy that I just assumed people wouldn't need this pointed out to them. At least five people have stuck their noses in and informed me of this. What is with all these moronic comments? It's worse than Grammar Nazis.

    Nor am I a law student anymore. I graduated in May.
