    Yes that is true buth the most important process is the will of the people of the state and they shot down gay marriage big time by changing the constitution...........

    I think you are addressing California here, where I do not believe it was shot down big time. 52% voted "Yes" to Proposition 8, 48% voted "No." Proposition 22 (the previous proposition on the same issue) passed with 61% of the vote.

    Seems like the tide may be turning.

    Yes it was California and did you know that more and more states are adopting changes to their constitution to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.......I believe its over 30 states now..............

    Out of curiosity, are there any gay marriage cases on their way to the USSC?

    I think the SCOTUS would like the states to settle this issue themselves.....

    Constitutional rights should never be put to a popular vote. That is the issue the California Supreme Court is looking at right now.
    Do you believe that all Constitutional Rights should be subject to a 50% +1 popular vote?

    State referendums mean absolutely nothing if the Supreme Court decides they violate Equal Protection. This is the reason why your Hero, GWB, was pushing for a Constititional Amendment.
