    People can have a multitude of reasons for something, for being against something. How ever if those reasons are found to not be CONSTITUTIONAL the reasons are dismissed. No sense in having a Constitution if the only thing to matter is the will of the people.

    THAT is the role of the Judiciary, to find the balance between the two poles. Not always popular and I'm sure it will be appealed.

    Scalia was right. This is what happens when sodomy is declared a constitutional right.

    None yet. But ultimately when the issue comes before the Supreme Court, Loving will absolutely play a role.

    Salt Lake City has had a history of very good progressive mayors. One of my favorites was Rocky Anderson.

    Nope. Tried to educate you. You simply demonstrated that you aren't willing to learn. Not gonna waste my time on people who refuse to learn. Sorry.

    You do realize that many heterosexual couples these days enjoy sodomy? Personally I think it's pretty gross, but those women and men that share in the experience say it's only because I never have (and never will).
    So I am curious, is it okay to outlaw the sexual acts of heterosexuals or just homosexuals?

    If you don't know how things get to the USSC, then you need to get some education first.

    Calm down.

    There were two recent gay marriage cases where they chose to ignore Loving. Why?

    If you understood the way the legal process works you would understand that it takes a while for a case to get to the Supreme Court. Don't worry...it will...and when it does...you aren't going to like the outcome. As Scalia says, the writing is on the wall.
