    I've already presented the case in NC. Just like with interracial marriage, NC had to have its ban/restriction overturned because it was unconstitutional. The federal courts are there to overturn the will of the people when that will is being used to oppress other people for no reason other than "we don't like them".

    What part of marriage not being a civil right don't you understand? Your state voted over 60% so you just have a problem being in a true minority. I suggest moving.

    You are going to find very few people believing that not being able to marry is oppression. Wow, project much?

    Great, then no need for more of these useless threads. The very small percentage of gay people in America vs the total population must be extremely ecstatic

    The total population according to polls has come around to support SSM.

    It's already in the works, it will be the law of the land.

    So, quite frankly you discriminatory ideologue, suck it.

    The total population (excluding those who are themselves homosexual) are not all against equal treatment under the law for homosexuals.

    A civil right is where someone is being treated differently by a law based on a specific characteristic of that person. It is not about the law itself.

    My state had a voter turnout of only around 20% of those registered to vote. It was because they set it up during a Republican primary. That fact in itself shows that it was a purely political move. I wasn't even in the state at the time (I was in San Diego, with my husband, who had orders there).

    I don't need to move. The federal courts took care of the issue. Same sex marriage is legal here. Same sex couples are getting married and that will not stop.

    Actually, I can find a lot.

    But at the very least, it is unfair treatment, which is something that the Constitution protects us from when it comes to the laws, which marriage is.

    Since polls matter so much to you then why did 19 states have to have their bans overturned by un-elected justices? Seems the will of the people in those states wouldn't require a judge to overturn the ban which of course was created by the people
