    I don't really care one way or the other.

    We have much more important issues to deal with.
    I'm not surprised by the ruling at all. It seems to me Due Process would preclude States from withholding same sex marriage rights.

    I recognize it's important to same sex couples, but it's an interesting fight in light of so many people today shunning marriage all together.

    So you can't provide anything other than a threat?

    What a strange threat at that. "The God I worship will punish America one day, for something not actually not in the scriptures, with what and when I cannot say, even though our next door neighbor hasn't received anything resembling a reprimand. It'll totally happen, you'll all see."

    We've had "two classes of enablers" since marriage began. That is specifically why we have JoPs who sign marriage licenses too, who that is part of their job (which should actually be the only ones forced to sign marriage licenses, because it is part of their job, what they get paid to do).

    I doubt very many will because it simply isn't worth it and they will see a reduction in people who decide to turn to the church for their marriage, or even wedding ceremony.

    But what's the point in not allowing a religious official to perform a legal marriage?

    Why shouldn't they be able to sign that document? It doesn't hurt anyone at all for them to do it, even if they are allowed to refuse to sign it for some people. And them doing it saves the state money in having to provide more people to be available to sign those documents.

    In a strange way, I think this will actually help the Reps chances (slightly) at the White House in 2016.

    Now, they have to put this aside and stop talking about it so much.

    Because they sounded like absolute DINOSAURS going on about their objections to same sex marriage.

    There are few things on the average Republican POTUS hopeful platform that sounded more irrational then being against same-sex marriage.

    Of course, they still don't get it that it sounds ridiculous. But at least now they have no choice and join the 21'st century on this.


    Once again, I am neither Dem nor Rep - I think both parties are worse then useless.

    Good. Now family values have been restored and the institution of marriage has been strengthened for a subsection of the American population. In an rather odd way, liberals have outdone conservatives in social conservatism.

    So they can be free to discriminate who they "marry" based upon religious reasons. If it's not a legal marriage the state has no horse in the race because it would only be a religious ceremony.
