The problem for marriage equality opponents is that they have not been able to frame a legitimate state interest in denying gay people the right to marry.
    Yeah but I dont like it, lol. But yes I am aware of that.

    I dont believe the govt should be involved in marriage at all.

    Re: Federal judge strikes down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage

    You know...those missionaries that have to be room mates and eat together, sleep in the same room, read, ride bikes, iron those short sleeved shirts, and go door to door spreading their magical plates and Joseph Smith and Kolob nonsense...well, they spend a lot of time together....knowhutImean?

    It's OK guys, you can go back to BYU and get married, but the question is, if two LDS guys get married, which one gets the secret name at the temple wedding? Because, traditionally, if the man dies first, he calls up his wife to Kolob when she dies, by her secret name (if the wife dies first, she basically is in Mormon limbo, hoping that the hubby dies and remembers her name). Do they both get secret names, can either of them go to Kolob and then colonize their own planet?

    LDS = Scientology + 100 years.

    I'm not sure about this ruling being overturned. The judge has written a very well thought out, well documented, and thorough decision in this case.

    I find your name calling a bit offensive. People in this country are allowed to have religious beliefs and faiths, not to be diminished by the ignorant, intolerant views of the leftist that feel a need to dump their hate on us.

    So long as you're not interfering in the rights and happiness and general equality of those who don't agree with your take on your religion, then you're not a bigot and therefore not included in disneydude's comment. If you are that kind of intolerant, then it shouldn't be offensive for you to be called what you are. If you are and don't want to be recognized as one, I suggest you stop being one. If you are not one, and have tolerance for those not just like you, then don't include yourself in posts about others.

    Sorry, but you don't have the right to tell me what the limits of my religious beliefs are. And they certainly don't interfere with anyone else's rights. And please, don't push that B.S. on me about equality. It's not equality. It's changing the definition of marriage for political gain. And really, it's time to shut up with the preaching of the B.S. In other words, don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

    A voter's reasons for wanting an unconstitutional law aren't relevant.
    Because why, according to the court, Deuce? It discriminated against homosexuals.

    Well then if you're going to act like a bigot, then expect to be recognized as one. Deal with it.

    Good for that Utah judge.

    National, legalized same-sex marriage is inevitable.

    We have the right to tell you whatever we want to tell you. It's called Free Speech.
