    Obviously you are wrong and there is about a century of precedent or more to back me up and not likely to get overturned by the original intent constitutional type.

    I turned it into an argument. I thought that was obvious. You aren't arguing that, but now I am.

    Still waiting on that legitimate state interest in banning same-sex marriage. But it doesn't exist, so I wont hold my breath.

    No, upholding individual liberty is not retracting the principle of individual liberty. What a silly thing to suggest.

    Unless you are referring to your individual liberty to suppress somebody else's individual liberty. In that case, I really don't know what to tell you.

    Bigots would destroy the lives and have been destroying the lives of LGBT for millenia. I will shed no tears for them when fined for violating equal protection laws.

    btw, if you never had a job with duties and customers you disliked you are definitely in the minority

    Moderator's Warning:
    Ala Chief Justice Tells Judges: Refuse Gay Marriage Licenses[W:344,535,718]Enough with the thread diversions. Discuss the OP, which is not each other or various ways of contracting HIV. If you want to talk about that, start a thread about it.

    They did - see the 14th

    Funny how principles like due process and equal protection are only objectionable when they expand the rights of groups we dislike

    That we have suffered from a judicial rewrite of the Constitution and judicial misconduct now used as precedent does not mean I am wrong. It is simply a measure of how much liberty we're willing to sacrifice before we stand up and say enough.

    Yes. Stand up and say "enough." Demand your right to suppress someone else's rights! That's real American values right there!

    Yes, to bring black males into the fold. The 14th did not deal with sexuality or gender. It took another amendment to deal with gender. Thus far, no such amendment for sexual orientation.

    Nope, entirely wrong on wording. There is no "right" here to suppress.
