    Again you don't understand how the Rights work... the Constitution limits the GOVERNMENT not citizens, there is NOTHING in the Constitution that says any Right not listed in the Constitution first belongs to the States and only what they don't want is given to the People...

    No, Sir, States are trying to ban SSM, 'defend' hetro marriage, and deny basic rights based on sexual orientation. If the States were allowing Same Sex MARRIAGE the courts would not be involved!!!!

    What 'finish the job'???? The JOB is declaring bans Unconstitutional. The bans being taken to the Supreme Court are in violation of the 14th amendment, sec 1.

    FYI, I don't want the courts to finish the job for ME, I married a woman,thankuverimuch.

    You keep saying the Supreme Court hasn't ruled on the definition of marriage but produce no proof they were ever offered the opportunity and refused to do so.

    But bet your bottom dollar THIS is how our system works, a law is passed and until someone takes the matter to court, it is the law of the land. If someone objects the law comes under judicial review. The Courts don't act proactively review laws a plaintiff must bring it to the attention of the court.

    Soon the High Court will do it's job, not finish the job.

    He wouldn't bake them a cake because he was a carpenter and not a pastry chef. He'd gladly have made them a nice set of chairs for the dinner table, though. Pretty swell guy, that Jesus.

    Our church operates a soup kitchen where we share all our blessings and we never turn anyone away. We also have cake!

    many republicans believe in equal rights along with the majority of the country but thats just a bonus

    opinions dont matter nor does party affiliation when it comes to equal rights, thats the best parts of rights and freedom

    factually false this has been proven many times already but repeating this lie shows how severely

    civil unions and domestic partnerships are factually not equal to marriage this fact will never change

    there are about 1200 federal rights and protections alone and then the state ones many that cant be duplicated by one contract or multiple contracts



    facts win again

    18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[a] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

    24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

    26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

    28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
    Hopefully you do not think you are quoting the constitution.
