    Good point, we could be talking about football... Tennessee plays #3 Mississippi this weekend! Go Vols!

    Because sometimes the people are wrong.

    You can't vote, to take away others rights, its as simple as that.

    What if people voted to allow slavery again?

    Whenever a law gets passed that some of you supposed "constitutionalists" don't like it's:

    "We're a Republic not a democracy"

    And when it's something you do like it's:

    "Will of the people".

    Well I'll tell you what, if I spend enough money I can convince enough people to vote to take your rights away and we'll see how much you enjoy the "will of the people" then.

    Seems that a lot of people in the country are wrong by your standards. We are indeed a republic and have 50 sovereign states that make the laws that govern marriage. The Will of the people is being overturned by justices. why hasn't the SC ruled on Marriage yet? Bring your opinion to TX and spend all the money in the world and see what that gets you here. You and others want to overturn the will of the people of TX as well as the many other states that don't buy into the SSM issue. Saying that the majority support the issue is a downright lie.

    IIRC, Texas was one of the States that still barred interracial marriage as of June 12, 1967.

    How'd that work out again?

    Race is indeed a Constitutional issue, marriage isn't. You want to marry your partner move to a state that allows it

    Loving (1967) was decided based on the equal protection provisions of the 14th Amendment, please show the class where race is specified as a condition?


    I don't need to move to marry my partner, we've been married for 27 years and have two fine children that are now adults. But thanks for the unneeded suggestion.


    From ZABLOCKI v. REDHAIL
    http://scholar.google.com/scholar_ca...24172413088195

    The Constitution does not specifically mention freedom to marry, but it is settled that the "liberty" protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment embraces more than those freedoms expressly enumerated in the Bill of Rights.

    I love how this is always your response.

    "Hey I know you love where you live, where you work, your families all here, but we want to be discriminatory dicks so go live somewhere else".

    Nah, sorry Conservative, this issue is already decided, SSM will be the law of the land, we just have a few formalities to deal with.

Liberals will do anything to overturn the will of the people but only on issues they deem important. Marriage has always been common law and all Americans have the same rights, marry someone of a different sex and there is no problem. Now the leftwing wants to overturn the states' rights issue by going through the courts. I have absolutely no problem with states approving same sex marriage but I do have a problem with the Federal Govt. getting involved especially the courts. What a bunch of typical leftwing bs that is destroying the will of the people.
    I'm sorry equal protection bothers you so much. I suppose you thought interracial marriage bans passed equal protection also. After all, everyone had the same right to marry someone of the same race.

    Loving was an issue of race not marriage. I was married to my wife for over 40 years and we have two well adjusted kids as well. I lost my wife to cancer last year and have over 40 years of wonderful memories.

    It only bothers me when it is applied to issues that it has no business being involved in. This is a state issue not a Federal one. Marriage isn't a civil right it is a privilege and has been controlled by the states for decades.
