    You need to redefine your undersanding of "culture".

    Your "culture" is no more deserving of constiutionally protected rights that any other...

    I don't even want to know... you see, there should be some semblance of national lucidity in knowing that we should not even have to approach certain limits... and the cast iron confidence that if the people do decide certain limits, these limits should be able to be openly declared... and have our government dignify them with the upholding of these limits.
    The judge who ruled in this case agreed with that exact principle. Perhaps you should READ the ruling so you know what you are commenting about.

    The will of the people is not a majority vote in Michigan. The will of the people is the US Constitution. It is literally spelled out "We the people..."

    Clearly the marjority there didn't care less -- they cared more.

    The same in every state that enacted a voter approved ban on "gay marriage": the majority of the people cared more.

    Where the states blew it, somewhat so to speak, was in not realizing that political ideology in power would one day, as sadly usual, trump majority rule, and these states would have done well to also enact at that time a civil union domestic partnership law similar to the civil union domestic partnership law called "marriage", only calling it "homarriage" or the like specifically for same-sex couples, same-sex couples who are, obviously, unqualified for the "marriage" statute civil union domestic partnership as they are not "a man and a woman as husband and wife" that marriage is.

    Money isn't everything.

    Humanity has historically spent much money righting wrongs.

    Fighting against the tyranny of the minority, the minority of those who would want "gay marriage" for themselves and their temporarily-in-power ideological power abusers supporting the disaffected coalition, is simply one of the ways humanity spends money to fight wrong doers and right wrongs.
    The majority in MI are uneducated hicks. Believe me, i grew up around them. This was also 10 years ago. They should be grateful to not be placed in the deepest darkest dungeon for this abuse of their fellow citizens. I can only laugh at the bigot voters on this day

    Very very informative post...I mean, notwithstanding the omission of having any information actually included....so, perhaps you might elucidate for us a tad... you know, for the ill- and under- informed masses out here?

    So we should just trash the US Constitution for mob rule? Popularism should override Constitutional rights and everything and anything should be put to a popular vote?

    Disagree, this country is chock full of disgraceful majority-approved "black codes," anti-gay laws, name your minority. "Millions" only enables/results from hysteria

    These are your words.

    So We, you know, the People, do not get to decide what is acceptable and not in our own culture anymore...
    Your own words are contradictory. Which is it?

    Are you the "We the people" that are in control of this nation...or are you the "We the people" that no longer have a voice in this nation's decisions?

    Another one bites the dust. It is noteworthy that not a single judge at any level has upheld a same-sex marriage ban since Windsor.
    Well, that's just great. I guess we can look forward to prolonged droughts here while the rest of you continue to be buried in snow.
