    They have a license; the ceremony was performed; the marriages exist, whether the governor wants to recognize them or not. He's being willfully blind

    Federal judge strikes down Utah



    Obama appointment, btw.
    It appears the Feds have never heard of the Tenth Amendment.

    Our federal government believes they can do whatever the **** they want....

    We don't have a ****ing democracy - we have an authoritarian federal government...

    Nope, the state has issued licences and can revoke them as well for state reasons.

    States should just ignore the feds.... What the hell are the feds going to do about it anyways? what can they do? send in the National Guard?

    If I was a governor and if the feds got involved with my state business I would tell them to go **** off....

    Some of these constitution loving politicians really need to grow a pair and remind the federal government that they have limited powers....

    If they want to "legalize" gay marriage then they should amend the constitution - until that happens they can go **** off...

    There are so many ways the federal can punish states for ignoring their proclamations. I understand your frustration at the creeping loss of the United States portion of the United States of America.

    Like how?

    Federal funding?

    So what.

    The feds cant do anything.... They're like North Korea with all the **** they talk....

    What the hell can they actually do?

    A state could secede right now and no one that has the actual capability to fight it would (civil war)....

    A longtime -we're talking 20 or 30 years - couple - one of them died; his partner had to sell the house because property taxes jumped up so high. This wouldn't have happened if they were married -the property taxes would have been the same.

    So I totally feel for L/G couples who couldn't get married, even though I personally wasn't a lesbian. As you say " Since same-sex marriage has no effect on my life, I have no business denying that right to others, and as an American I feel obligated to support that freedom for others"

    Why Anthony thinks you're telling a lie, I have no idea.
    yep and the majority people do care about equal rights and their fellow americans, i could never discriminate against my fellow american and deny them the same rights i have.

    1.) nope just grant the people thier rights like they have the right to do
    2.) you would never be governor and if you broke the law you would simply be in jail lol
    3.) correct and this is within their power,
    4.) factually not needed

    anger like this over people gaining equal rights is hilarious.
