    Re: US judge strikes down Okla. same-sex marriage ban

    I couldn't be more happier. These atrocious laws are going down so quickly, it's only a matter of time, I say 5 years at most, before the whole country has marriage equality. I'm so surprised it is going so well; it's like a set of dominoes, all the pieces are coming down and it's beautiful.

    Yes! Another state moving in the right direction!

    The Feds/district judges have no right to do that.....

    This is spawning an authoritarian government (not that our present government(s)) for the most part aren't already authoritarian.

    Hell, I suppose in this case totalitarian would be a better word.

    yep those will be the failed rehashed and strawman arguments from the few that are dishonest or severely uneducated about this topic and every time they bring them up they get destroyed by many many posters and facts.

    I guess bigotry and or discrimination is hard to let go of.

    That's quite the statement. Many minority groups would still be out in cold with that attitude. This might-makes-right attitude is entirely antithetical to the freedom and equal citizenship you apparently hold in such high regard.

    I'm not gay, evangelical, or live in OK, so please stop flaunting your bedroom practices in my face by making threads like these. It's non of anyone's business and I'll thank you to keep it that way.

Telling people that they have no right to make or enforce marriage laws like upholding traditional marriage does turn a voting class of people into second class citizens and restricts their freedoms.

    And don't try to correlate this with women's rights or minority rights, totally separate issues.
    This is one of the most ridiculous posts I've ever seen on this board, and that's saying a lot.

    You don't get to vote in an unconstitutional law that takes away someone else's rights. Sorry if that bothers you so much. Wait, no I'm not.

    1.)I'm not gay or evangelical
    2.)This isnt a bedroom practice this is marriage
    3.)How is reporting a court ruling "flaunting it in your face" if you dont like news then dont read it.

    LOL....your attempts to spin this as an example of "Authoritarian Government" is laughable. This is an example of the Court upholding the rights of the citizens of this great country to enjoy the freedom to love and marry and be free of discrimination by the state.

    Marriage isn't a right first off all and secondly marriage is a state recognized contract..

    Want to argue with that?

    Why not just argue for anarchy and abolish the entire Bill of Rights and Constitution while we're at it or are you just selective in which rights you recognize and those you don't?

    As far as I'm concerned the State and Feds shouldn't be involved in the "marriage businesses" for numerous reasons.
