    Why were the 13th, 14th and 15th written and ratified? Learn a bit more about the US Constitution and you'll not need to ask that. As for the over 45 judges, yes, they ruled inconsistently with both law and constitution.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You're not 'we the people. You're one person and most people in the USA don't agree with your ideas. Read a few polls.

I think it is quite reasonable enough that the state does not consider homosexuality to be a criminal behavior and does not interfere with people living with or having sex with whomever they choose. Homosexuals may enjoy their homosexual relationships without interference from the state - but also without the state's blessing. I know it's just awful that all the homosexuals in Ohio can't say "we're just as normal as heterosexuals" but our state just isn't interested in perpetuating that lie.
    What interest do the states have in banning gay marriage?

    Yes, the end is in sight for our constitutional republic. Not because of homosexual marriage, but because of how this thing was done.
    The end is in sight only for your particular interpretation of the constitution.

    Yeah, but there is no shortage of hyperbole!

    Apparently the voters in the state of Washington - and in many other states - are also rogue/activists.
