    Nobody has to fight for their rights anymore, the SCOTUS made marriage a right so the majority can no longer define what marriage is.



    Marriage is a right now. You can't refuse it to anyone. Welcome to the crap storm.
    What business do we have in limiting the freedom of the minority at the behest of the majority?

    More and more I think Conservatives are for **** canning the republic and starting a pure Democracy. "Mob Rule" is okay when the majority agree with a Conservative principle...... The same applies when it is a liberal principle, then the liberals are okay with "Mob Rule".

    Which is why we need the republic, and not democracy, more and more.

    Typically, the government can't force people to abandon their constitutional rights as a condition of employment.
    When the right is a "religious right" to discriminate, and it is their job to provide a service to ALL the people... then yes.

    Religion is between the worshiper and their deity..... they have no right to refuse government services to those who don't fall in line with their religions principles.

    Oh well.........

    You do not have a "right" to a partner.

Justice Ginsberg herself made this claim nary a few short years ago, but ignored it, several days ago when joining the majority.
    Normally when you think of fundamental rights, you think of something that is protected at the very highest level from government interference; suddenly we have a fundamental right that requires -demands - government intrusion. Who knows when they'll discover that next fundamental right to government hidden somewhere in the text?

    The same applies to situations of immigration. You could get one legalized individual to apply for a marital license with numerous illegal immigrants under the auspices of a polygamous marriage even though there is no intent to ever form a polygamous family unit.
    All examples of things that occur with monogamous relationships as well.

    Not a reason to deny Polygamy.

    And that is what the constitution considers.....
    And the freedoms of the Constitution put no restrictions on "legal marriage" of any kind. So if we're going to go down this road, then everyone should be free to marry any which way they choose.

    You have to be actually married. There is no more fraud potential than in any other marriage.

    Can't see how this can be stopped.
    Although I'm a Texan, I grew up in Montana. Many of my compadres from back home are not happy that this is coming from Montana.... based on Kennedy's opinion there is no stopping it. Because of the social impact, this ruling will go down as one of the worst rulings of all time.

    Your previous argument was that majority opinion would keep polygamy legalization from happening. So it seems YOU are the one calling for pure democracy.
