    Actually, there are about 11 states that oppose same sex marriage in higher numbers than Texas. Texas, for the South, is really pretty "loving" of gays, relatively speaking.

    Sounds so pre-Supreme Court ruling same sex life-stylish of you. And the paper isn't really all that meaningless.

    Let them celebrate. They won't be after the 2016 elections.
    Unpopular?

    Even accounting for cranky old people, Obamacare's popularity is above water, 43 percent to 42 percent, and its trend lines are improving. The numbers reflect a steady but remarkable climb back from November 2013, when the Healthcare.gov outage left the law under water by a 16-point margin. Part of the reversal owes to the simple fact that the website now works. But even that only returned the numbers to their pre-launch levels, when the law was under water by margins of 4 to 8 points.

    Relax. Gay marriage has been occurring in parts of the country since 2004.

    Then do it. But you won't have the same protections or benefits that my husband and I have, or will pay more for them just because of your stubbornness. If you're fine with that, it doesn't bother me.

    Yes, I have read the plain English of the United States Constitution as written and as amended and I expect it to be upheld and followed by the government that would have no authority to exist or to do anything whatsoever without it.

    When they grievously break this contract, there is no reason for anyone else to follow it.

    Yoru second sentence can be made a lot more rationally. I agree...most homosexuals problems were never caused by others, by their families, or even the lack of marital rights...but by their lack of acceptance of themselves. The reality is that no one will be forced to accept or even proclaim that homosexuality is good, right, or 'normal.' Everyone will be much happier when they start with acceptance of SELF. A ruling on gay marriage isnt going to change that.

    Do you understand that there is a difference between supporting homosexuals and supporting homosexuality? You dont have to understand or even agree with someone to be their friend and to offer love and support. I personally dont agree with the ruling, but that doesnt impact my belief on homosexuality, nor does it impact my relationships with friends, familiy, and coworkers that happen to be gay.

    Maybe you should take a step back and breathe. Seriously...you cant POSSIBLY have NOT seen this coming. Breathe, baby...its going to be OK. The sun will still come up tomorrow. Life will still go on.

    Of course you're right, but this is just one more knock against marriage. Marriage favors the woman anyway, the justice system has already taken divorce law to where your wife can cheat on you, if you divorce her, she gets HALF.

    I don't really want to get saddled with that level of financial risk. This decision today just zaps whatever there was about marriage that was pure or worth pursuing anyway....because there is no logical reason for a well off man to marry, the only reason would have been emotional or traditional. Well, now those reasons are finito as well

    Tell me, why is it that when a conservative hears facts they don't like, reads an academic study by trained researchers whose conclusions disagree with their dogma, it is instantly because it's a "left wing organization?" Are you really that incapable of thinking that people who don't share your narrow view of the world are incapable of research?!

    Did you forget that I have lived in Texas for over 60 years?
