    Thank you. That's the quote I needed for future use. The next time I object to some random pro-SSM argument, I will inevitable be accused of trying to put the government in the bedroom, or some similar nonsense. I trust you won't mind my quoting you so as to set them straight (no pun intended).

    Matters of public policy are everyone's business. It doesn't need to directly effect you in any way for you to have a say as a tax-paying voter.

    You do realize that Jim Crow laws were the legally held beliefs of many people, yes? And that those laws were deemed to violate the constitution, yes? And that those laws were held for many years and were changed due to changes in public opinion, yes? Here, take a course in American history:

When in doubt, when politics don't go your way just file with the courts and hope some activist judges will give your opinion on a political/social issue legal protection everyone does it.

    If this insanity is upheld I sincerely hope that there is a revolt and maybe even a split of the union. For far too long the rights of people have been eroded by this progressive philosophy of anti-religion and anti-voter's rights/sate's when issues are not popular among secular liberals/progressives. Such a sweeping change of hundreds of years of marital practice should not happen due to perversion becoming more socially acceptable, especially not without a Constitutional Amendment that removes the rights of states to define marriage.
    every time you post this hyperbolic, spite fueled lie and rhetoric that has been destroyed by many many posters it makes me laugh

    sorry human, equal and civil rights wins again and bigotry and/or the want to discriminant loses again

    this is awesome and has most americans proud, its great im actually living in a time when america fixes one of its wrongs. There was a time when i thought i wouldnt be alive to see the bigotry and illegal discrimination lose to equal rights on this issue bandut that thought is long gone. Victory is on the horizon, equal rights is on the horizon and it makes me joyful and proud to witness such greatness and to see these violation of human, civil and equal rights be fixed and removed!

    Anybody that feels like you do(bloded above), i hope that happens too. Now mind you its not what i WANT to happen though. But if people are crazy, ignorant and anti-equal rights enough to want to revolt that would be awesome. That way they can be easily identified and dealt witht . There will be no split of the union though, only bigots and or people that support illegal discrimination losing.

    people that against human/equal/civil rights will never be happy in america anyway.

    A belief you never once expressed until it became clear same-sex marriage was a fight you were losing.

    And yes, maybe not a war but at least rebellion and a split of the union. In America the Constitution has been used to legalize and protect abortion, and now they are wanting to try and use it to protect perverted definitions of marriage coupled with moronic rulings and lawsuits against "religion" on government property and whatnot. I would hope that this is the last straw that breaks the camel's back if it is upheld. I for one do not want to live in a nation that restricts my freedoms to vote on social issues, legalizes things with Constitution protection that I consider to be the biggest ethical evil of our time (abortion) and backs the secular while restricting the rights of expression of the religious. Tyranny due to social change is wrong, especially without new Amendments to the Constitution. I know many may think my opinions or beliefs on the issue are extreme or harsh, but they are. As a citizen I'm sick of such things happening and it worries me to see that the Constitution of this country wants to protect such evils, it's inhumane and should not be tolerated by people of like mind up to the point of rebellion and separation from the union.


    Incorrect. Saying to an entire voting block and class of people that their legally held beliefs and laws can no longer be on the books because they "violate the Constitution" and forcing those laws, that have been held for many years and wanting to be changed due to changes in public opinion, is wrong. 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.
    Was it wrong with inter-racial marriage as well Digs? Afterall....Saying to an entire voting block and class of people that their legally held beliefs and laws can no longer be on the books because they "violate the Constitution" and forcing those laws, that have been held for many years and wanting to be changed due to changes in public opinion, is wrong. Telling people that they have no right to make or enforce marriage laws like upholding traditional homogenous marriage does turn a voting class of people into second class citizens and restricts their freedoms, correct?

    as proven by facts many times already that you choose to ignore they are NOT separate issues, womans rights, minority rights and interracial marriage were all equal/human.civil rights issues just like SSM. THis fact doesnt change simply because you dont like it and it destroys your argument.

    Not a valid comparison because reasons.

    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.
