    I will remove it if prompted. It is not a taunt or taken out of context. It is a direct quote. I do not believe I need your permission under forum rules to quote you in that regard, but if I do, why not give it to me if it is how you genuinely feel and what you stand by?

    And all of them are wrong.

    NOTE: The ruling was NOT just that states have to recognize it. The ruling is that it is now LEGAL, being constitutionally protected. It COULD HAVE made the ruling more narrow, but it did not. It went all the way. The matter is now settled. Gay marriage is legal, like interracial marriage is.

    Long past due.


    Thank you, Quazi!

    It is not MY victory. As I said, I have no horse in this race. I don't even particularly care much, one way or the other. I merely reported the S.Ct.'s holding, and corrected your erroneous statement that Americans are against it. Polls have shown that most Americans are not against it....either they are for it, or they don't care one way or the other.

    Not that it matters much whether most people want it or not. That's not how we decide freedoms in our country. If it were, we would still have slavery, segregation, and a host of other things, because people at the time were against things at the time. You are on the wrong side of history. In the future, we'll wonder who was against this, and why. Just like we wonder about who was against integration, civil rights, equal pay for women, etc.....and how silly and wrong they were.

    Anything that expands freedom is generally a good thing. Not always, but generally. Better than the reverse.

    We didn't abandon the rule of law. The constitution is the supreme law of the land and the constitution was upheld today.

    And calling someone a flaming faggot in your hate speech doesn't violate the forum rules?

    Churches will be in violation of federal law if they refuse. I can GUARANTEE to you there will be discrimination lawsuits against churches who refuse to marry gay couples. Hell, even private business have been sued for refusing to provide service to same-sex couples.

    You do need permission to have a quote in your sig, and you don't have it. Do you really have to make the mods get involved in enforcement when it's already been spelled out to you?

This isnt about a decision based on law...its about emotion. And finally...4-I dont have a say in this, wont be casting a vote in this so reviewing 80 pages of blather makes no sense.

    Im glad the decision is made. I wish it had been made by adults acting responsibly...even if the end result were the same.
