    So what? Your argument is basically that you disagree that SCOTUS affirmed religious liberty in this ruling which means, based on all their previous rulings to date, they will likely affirm it in a future ruling. And I am not even disagreeing with you on the principle that churches should not be compelled to marry same sex couples. In fact, can you point to one person on this forum who has suggested they should be? Your argument is nothing but semantics about whether the current litigation is enough to settle the religious liberty issue, or more will be needed. But I doubt anyone would suggest this Supreme Court would not support a church refusing to marry same sex couples. If the Westboro Baptist Church can protest at the funerals of fallen heros and keep their tax exempt status, then I think churches are pretty damn safe not marrying same sex couples.

    Now, I don't actually don't consider expanding rights to be tyranny. In fact, I consider the government taking power that it is not allowed or granted to have by the Constitution to be a form of tyranny. The throwing of the bone to force gay marriage on the states seems like a freedom to the easily deceived. Helps when there are so many that are willing to swallow that bone.
    Yeah, we get it. You place state's rights ahead of individual rights. Good for you.

    So you think a government expanding the rights and privileges held by citizens... to be a form of tyranny?

    What this decision did not do is declare LGBT's a protected class. So discrimination against LGBT's is allowed; except where local ordinances forbid it.

    If you went to Harvard or Yale and are somewhat accomplished at law you could become a supreme court justice. Of course, being a minority helps too in times when a minority pick is the right poltical move for the sitting president. Eitherway, many senators are highly educated as well and once again being a minority might help in certain situations. For example, some districts have elected a black representative for more than a half century regardless of how corrupt the candidate is. I don't put much weight on the opinion of senators, representatives, governors, presidents, mayors, justices or anyone else in power and I don't think any of them are qualified to tell me anything.

    Your point was that marriage, since the dawn of time, has been between people of the same races? Sorry, I did not realize you agreed with the judge in Loving v. Virginia.

    Keep telling yourself this was made up in the later half of the 20th century.
    yeah, saw a youtube clip once saying "the gays have been fighting for rights for almost 20 years now, they need to learn patience." Apparently never heard of stonewall, ww2 dishonorable discharges, institutionalization, or hell even sodomy laws go back to the country's founding

    Ah, you failed. You got it wrong, I invite you to think a little harder, and try again. But, I'm not expecting too much.
