    The impeachment process is not subject to judicial review.

    In any case, he's up for reelection later this year. He will lose.

    The people of Indiana voted overwhelmingly to not change the definition of marriage.

    They are denied equal access to protections under the law, that is being penalized. Other unmarried different sex couples can choose to get married, in many states same-sex couples cannot - they are barred by law.

    They are penalized by not having access to Civil Marriage when compared to "Equally-situated couples". In this case that would be law abiding, tax paying, US Citizen, infertile, consenting, non-related, adults in different-sex couples as compared to law abiding, tax paying, US Citizen, infertile, consenting, non-related, adults in same-sex couples.

    One set of the above is permitted to Civilly Marry in every State in the Union, the other denied this in most states. They are penalized by not having equal treatment under the law to access the same legal status - which then impact life, liberty and property.

    Well, that's just not true. We support the right of all people to vote for laws that aren't unconstitutional.

    doesn't matter if that current definition is illegal it has to be changed theirs no rational reason to discriminate against same sex couples so that discrimination must end and it is ending

    and religious nuts who condemn and seek to control the lives of others based on faith alone is not scary or dangerous?
