    Removing the ability of Person A to strip away the rights of Person B does not make Person A a second class citizen. This has been explained many times to no avail.

    It's not cool, it's sick and such a massive injustice against freedom and human rights. Regardless of your stance on SSM, this is wrong on so many levels.
    It seems you possess a child-like understanding of both concepts.

    No rational reason? Wow....so the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution is not a rational reason. Wow....seriously....just wow.

    What you and others are failing to understand Digs is that Constitutional rights are not subject to a majority vote. Can you imagine if inter-racial marriage had been put to a majority vote?

    Yeah, because the explanations provided are just "lipstick on a pig". There is no federal right to marry.

    How about "you don't get to vote on somebody else's rights, Utah ****nuts."

    A voter's reasons for wanting an unconstitutional law aren't relevant.

    It'll be quicly overturned by another federal judge. This is the first judge's attempt to give SCOTUS a case to rule on. Transparent. SCOTUS won't pick this one up either.

    How come I never got the freedom to veto your marriage? I don't approve of your wife.

    You do when they're not rights, or when they are rights granted solely by the states.

    We'll see. They're already issuing marriage licenses in Salt Lake City at this very minute. Sorry....but another chip falls.
