    Where does the SCOTUS decision make such a limitation to this new "right"?

    So... because issues may arise out of it.....is that enough reason to deny it?

    If that were true....we would have never expanded west...... "uncharted territory" and all that.....

    You clearly didn't understand my comments, as I was saying that the amount of gay people in the state is not a reason to allow discrimination just because they may be few in number.

    The few in number magistrates, however, will create a situation in which, under this "religious freedom" bull**** law, allows for a greater number of same sex couples to be discriminated against because if the one magistrate available claims this "deeply held religious belief", same sex couples are now denied access to marriage.
    Ahh, I see what you're trying to say now and I think it fair to say that we pretty much agree. I don't know how the final outcome of these religious freedom laws will pan out, but I don't think the public is going to stand for government employees discriminating against certain groups of society. Those days are numbered....and so perhaps what we're witnesses now is just the last death throws of anti-SSM crowd.

The idea that we will be the 1st is laughable.
    I am no homophobe, as I support same sex marriage fully.

    I also support polygamy..

    Can you provide a reason why polygamy should be unlawful?

    Thankfully we have rule of law that protects our rights from the "FIRE THEM!" mobs wielding torches and pitchforks that would see those rights stripped away...
    So then you support the rights of District, Superior, Appellate, and Supreme court judges to base their decision of law on their religious beliefs?

    Mormon missionaries used to get run out of town because men thought they were trying to steal their wives and daughters. And...sometimes they did.

    As marriage is recognized under law as a contract.... the only restriction should be "of legal age" and "of sound mind".

    Quote me on that.... Because I don't recall having ever said it.

    How long ago was this exactly??

Most Americans don't know on a personal level incestuous or polygamous couples, therefore the fight for their rights won't be in the forefront of American politics.

    Since it is a uniquely conservative issue and phenomenon, conservatives will have to chalk up the arguments for pro-incest and pro-polygamous marriages. You can start with the OT, which is a unique selling point among our nations most religious and might win you sympathy in the courts.
    Not only is this post offensive, its content is very poorly informed. The ignorance by which you paint a broad brush of disparaging remarks upon an entire community is quite distressing, reminiscent of the way blacks were treated in the Jim Crow south. This undoubtedly is the most bigoted post I have read on these forums.

    Let me see if I can make this a little more clear. 1. You do not know biblical interpretation, or you would never write such a post, therefore you should steer clear. 2. "car on the lawn states"? What the hell is that? I can only guess you must be sheltered in the city with no diversity in your understanding outside of your little bubble, especially concerning of rural folks, maybe you should expand your geographic and social knowlege.

    There is no religious right to discriminate. There is a right to free exercise that the government cannot require you to abandon as a condition of employment *unless* it is the only way they can reasonably fulfill their state interest in issuing licences/performing marriages or whatever. It is not mandatory that I "serve all the people" simply because I work in the county clerk's office, however, that could be an indirect effect of being the sole employee of an office that must "serve all the people."
