    There is nothing "live and let live" about your position, and the challenges to the law came from alabama citizens, not "DC activists"

    Keep blaming 'activist judges' for your heinous beliefs, when they are nowhere near in the majority anymore either

    the supreme court - see: "DOMA"

    SCOTUS.

    Do you think this is some sort of argument that supports state discrimination against individuals?

    Then let the people of Alabama vote on gay marriage in their state

    There is a very clear hierarchy in jurisdiction and supremacy. Probate courts are nowhere near the authority of state supreme courts, which are nowhere near the authority of federal courts + appeals court refuses stay + SCOTUS refuses stay

    This is not goddamn rocket science or even 8th grade social studies

    You realize the Supreme Court is a branch of the federal government, right?

    When people speak of the Feds, they're generally speaking of all three branches of government

    And the supreme court was never intended to usurp the states

    I get what you're saying that the oral arguments in the spring will be rendered meaningless showmanship, because the justices already decided how they'll vote, but in truth, this issue has been argued to death and there's no need for any more.
    This is about a legal case, not some moral case. Please do learn the difference. Start with learning what laws are, and work from there.

    No. We dont vote on individual liberty in this country. If you want to restrict individual liberty, you need a better reason than "I don't like it."

    States were never intended to violate personal freedom. You are the one wanting to restrict the individual, you need to justify it.
