    You can spin it, shed a tear, cry in outrage, or stand on a soapbox. It's still illegal.
    A fringe Liberal? x] I was never contending that what he did was legal or right. If you read the post I was responding to you would have recognized the context and understood me. The post I replied to said something along the lines of "what's wrong with this guy?". I was simply saying why I thought he did it.

    I've seen you enough to know an appropriate lean, but that's neither here nor there. Basically you endorsed highly illegal and seditious activity by an "officer of the court". No amount of morality will make me side with that.

    If IO were you, I'd give up on predictions. You've been wrong quite a bit. I thought we were supposed to see President Santorum, or was it President Romney. It changed so much during the election for you.

    Oh, and I thought we wouldn't see an overturn of DADT?

    Yeah, in the gay marriage department and presidential department, you're not batting well at all on your predictions.

    Unless they are two women, then conservatives are out spanking it off in their living room while in public they go "Homosexuality is bad" like the hypocrites they are.

    I like to think I don't fit in with any party, but your opinion is somewhat accurate in that I agree with some Liberal ideas. I didn't endorse it, I provided my reasoning for why it happened.

    Oh I think we all know why it happened. We're probably more in disagreement with the why to the why. For instance, my take is that the guy has more balls than brains.

    Which is why the same sex couple who is being denied the right to marry has grounds to appeal the law. Why are you confused?

    No, the court will do so. Hence the appeal.

    Except, you know, in California, where they already did.

    It'd be judicial activism if it was the other way around.

    Oh, and the clerk should be fired.
    The courts are supposed to void laws that are unconstitutional, so no it's not the same the other way around. I'm referring as much though to cases where judges have declared SSM legal and there was no law against it (as far as i know), such as MA or Iowa, then uproar followed about "activist judges."

    Re: Pa. judge orders end to same-sex marriage licenses

    The clerk did the wrong thing. Unlike NM where there is no definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman where the clerks who are handing out marriage licenses to gay couples are doing the right thing, in PA the clerk does have a job to do and should be following through as per the law. We do not get to decide which laws we get to follow and which laws we do not, which is why after gay marriage is passed any state employee who has it within their job description and responsibilities to perform the marriage ceremony should be forced to do marry gays as part of their job as a state employee. The sword will cut both ways eventually, and we will wait to see the hypocrisy of many in this thread when they endorse a judge refusing to marry a gay couple as part of their job responsibilities and state law. Even though i like what the clerk did he stepped way outside of his job and I should say deserves to be terminated for not upholding the laws he was tasked to. I will also endorse pulling any employee from their position for denying to marry gays when they are legally allowed to be.

    If you knowingly fail to do your job properly you need to go find one you can do. As for those who think gay marriage is not coming, you are doomed. perhaps a quick and swift death to your hateful morals would decrease your prolonged suffering and get gays on with the rest of their lives which would be best all around, but if you want to fight it for a slow suffering agonizing loss I have some popcorn and plenty of time top watch people like NP whine and have meltdowns time and time again as their hate gets stomped 50 times. Actually 52 if you consider DOMA and DADT.
