A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
I like how, after years of claiming that gay people marrying each other would herald the doom of our society, right wingers are now saying that it was never important. If it was never important, then we wouldn't have had to have this debate at all. There would never have been bans enacted into state constitutions. Of course it was important. And now it's over, and good unambiguously won, and evil unambiguously lost.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
head explodes.jpg"The opinion is couched in a style that is as pretentious as its content is egotistic. If, even as the price to be paid for a fifth vote, I ever joined an opinion for the Court that began: 'The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity,' I would hide my head in a bag. The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie."
"And to allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation. But what really astounds is the hubris reflected in today’s judicial Putsch."
Way to go SCOTUS...finally America joins the 21'st century on this.
It is absolute nonsense that the state could decide who can marry and who cannot. ANY consenting adults should be able to marry.
And the hypocrisy of the right saying that same sex marriage is against the Bible, yet the Pope now supports global warming being caused by humanity - though the right is still insisting there is little/no global warming.
So, basically, the right just wants to believe whatever it wants and only uses the Bible whenever it suits them.
Once again, I am neither lib nor con.
