    Do they not teach reading and comprehending plain English documents where you went to school?

    Rhetorical question.

    I could see no other alternative for the SCOTUS than to uphold same sex marriage across the nation, this is because the marriage license exists. So long as it exists, government could not rightfully discriminate along lines of sexuality and must issue the contract. Now to go further and state marriage as a right, that's a bit much IMO. It's contract that is the right, and the right of contract that was infringed upon by the bans against Same Sex Marriage.

    But given that the Marriage License exists, I could not see SCOTUS rightfully coming down against Same Sex Marriage.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    You should use part of his prior post, where he ends up by saying, "I hate you." (posting to a gay or gay-support poster)

    It would have been better that if the states had simply done the right thing and just recognized that the world is much different place now. Failing that a decision based on the 14th amendment sounds right to me though I've yet to read the decision.

    All that said from a pure human decency standpoint I'm thrilled that we no longer treat a large minority of our people like second class citizens.

    I read the rules. Please quote where it says I need permission.

    And if he stands by what he says, why is he ashamed for people to see it?

    You may have won a court case, and the left-leaning folks on this site may support you, but you will NEVER be socially accepted by mainstream America.

    I never had a problem with gays before today, but this is too much. I will not be your friend.
    Your loss. Wonder how long she will be willing to stay with you if you aren't willing to marry her because of this issue? Seems a bit ridiculous.

    Making up **** and tacking it on to the text as though it was always there is the exact opposite of upholding the text.

    The Tenth Amendment is a thing, it has not been repealed.

    Pretending it has been or just ignoring it wholesale is decidely NOT upholding the text.
