The fact remains, with all the problems facing this country a very small vocal minority has made this issue their main priority and what they are going to do is force a definition of marriage into the Constitution and this being a nation founded upon Christian principles is going to force the people to react accordingly. I sincerely feel sorry for people who cannot accept civil unions or domestic partnerships but have to call attention to themselves and their sexual activity.
It is a sad state of affairs in a country with a 17.3 trillion dollar debt, over 20 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers, record numbers dependent on the taxpayers for some kind of assistance from the taxpayers, stagnant GDP growth that this topic always gets maximum responses in this forum by people who apparently have nothing else to do or worry about.
When you destroy the rule of law, you destroy the foundation upon which this country was built. When you destroy the definition of marriage you destroy the states' rights to administer a state issue, and when you evoke the Equal Protection clause on an issue that doesn't even apply and let activist justices rule in your favor you take this country down a very slippery slope. What is next marriage of family members?
What this continues to show is liberalism to be the disease it is and one that is the biggest threat ever to this country today. When you liberals realize what you have done it will be too late to save it. Guess that goes to show exactly what the education system has created and why we have the govt. today that we have, one where you enforce the laws you want to enforce, get some activist judge to give you want you want, and destroy the moral and ethical fabric that made this country the greatest on the face of the earth. You activist liberals must be very proud of yourselves. I really fear for my grandkids if this is the major issue facing this country.
