    Wow, that's funny. I heard the show too, and he explained things in great detail.

    One of the main points of our federal courts is to ensure that the rights guarantees of our Constitution, the US Constitution, are being upheld, even when it comes to the states.
    Show me the right to marry for same sex couples, also show me the results of those elections where states voted to ban ssm and we will talk about 1 elected official subverting the will of the people

    If it is a state, by state issue as has been ruled, then how does 1 unelected judge overturn a ballot issue that has been decided.

    Ugh. The trend is toward SSM being the law of the land -- its momentum is irreversible. Those in favor of ssm, you're going to get it. Those opposed to it, deal with it.

    Read the thread. As a matter of fact, pick any ssm thread at random, and your question will be answered.

    Again, we still have protection of the minority from the tyranny of the majority. States do not have the right to have established bans that are unconstitutional. Just because a state makes a constitutional amendment to allow raping women, that doesn't make it consitutional or legal.
