    The judge is breaking the law by doing this. Why do you support that?

    Your marriage isn't being redefined.

    To me, that's just further evidence that people are just predisposed towards this kind of thinking. Faith that only arrives through fear and desperation isn't evidence of God. At least, not the one in your book.

    SC State Supremes ruled correctly; the definition of marriage is part of our State Constitution, and should not be overturned by some indirect implied assumption about a ruling an APPELLATE court made about a law in another state.


    It was right and proper for SCOSC to put a hold on this while the legal issues were examined and clarified, and possibly until after the State seeks further legal redress.

    I don't think it is and I believe that's why SCOTUS refused to decide, because they might possibly be forced to overturn the circuit court rulings and hand the issue, in totality, to the states.

    That doesn't make any sense. If SCOTUS found anything particularly egregious about the so-far unanimous Circuit Court decisions then they would have taken at least one of the appeals. The fact that the stay for Idaho has been rescinded upon review of the arguments most likely means that SCOTUS agrees with those decisions and will not wade into the issue unless there is a deviation from this trend.

    There's no unanimous circuit court decision. A refusal, by the SCOTUS means that it's no longer the Feds's jurisdiction, which means the states are allowed to enforce their own constitutions.
