    Well then. There you have it. You got all upset over nothing.

    Cite the federal statute you think applies.



    I'm already familiar with that study. Every single right-winger latches onto it. It was bogus. It took children who had literally never been in a household with same-sex parents and called them "gay households."

    Federal statute? Why do you think there has to be a federal statute that applies for someone to be sued?

    The Washington Post is a lib rag. As believable as the NY Times, Boston Globe, CNN and MSNBC.

    I am looking at the facts, the fact that not a single person has sued a church over refusing to marry them, and even if some idiot did, they would be quickly slapped down by the lower courts as well as public opposition to such a case.

    There is no such thing as "plain English," especially with legal documents. Everything requires an act of interpretation. The proper question is, what methods do we use to interpret it?

    For example, consider the protections from cruel and unusual punishment. What does this mean? George Washington flogged deserters from the Revolutionary Army, but we do not regard that as an acceptable punishment today. Which standards do we apply? Should we go back to floggings, stocks, and breaking on the wheel because they were acceptable in the late 18th century?


    This is the worst. Thing. A. Supreme Court. Can. Do. It is tyranny.
    lol

    How is granting people the freedom to choose their own spouses a form of tyranny?


    Constitutional rights are explicit or not at all.
    Incorrect. In fact, the Framers did not include the Bill of Rights in the first draft, specifically because they did not want people to assume that enumerated rights were the only protected rights.

    Nor is the court creating anything. Our nation has long held that people have the right to the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness; and the right to be treated equally under the law. This ruling upholds both these principles. It is no different than using federal standards to determine citizenship, or the boundaries of reasonable search and seizure.


    This ruling along with the prior Obamacare rulings serves as proof that we the people have been bad stewards and we have not kept our republic. It is too far gone.
    Uh huh. You lose a few political battles, and you give up on the entire nation? lol

    I hate to break it to you, but it isn't a functioning democracy if you, and only you, get your way every single time. Sometimes the state will make decisions you agree with, sometimes it won't. Sometimes it sucks, sometimes it's good. Welcome to America, my friend.

    Oh...so you mean it's empty, angry ranting because you didn't get your way, but you're not going to do anything about it. Got it.

    Well have fun in your impotent rage.

    Right. Like we're not dealing with a plain English document here. It's not some holy text that only the priests can bestow upon you. Educate yourself.

    If a marriage certificate is so meaningless, then you shouldn't be so upset that same-sex couples can have it.
