    Black ministers and the former Mayor of DC are the tyranny of the masses? What a trite yet uninformed comment; but typical for you to race bait the issue.

    Right now the Black Ministers and citizens of DC are in an outrage and assaulting the DC City Hall over this issue.

    So now we have a tiny minority who, through the use of outrageous fear tactics, convinced judges and State Legislatures that the will of the people mean nothing, that religious principle means nothing and that regardless of the voters will, they are going to shove this view down everyone's throats whether they like it or not.

    I'd like to know how much manual labor Hatuey has ever had to do. From his pic, he looks like too much of a pussy to pick cotton. He needs to stop bellyaching about things he knows nothing about. Ask him if I walked through south central LA, who would be doing the lynching. Was [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reginald_Denny_incident"]Reginald Denny [/ame]down there trying to lynch someone?

    What a trite analogy; so you think that this is about being forced into a gay marriage?

    Here's a more valid question; why is it so imperative to re-define marriage for the sake of the gay community?

    Why is a civil union not sufficient to satisfy the desire for two same sex people to commit themselves and their assets?

    The answer is as obvious as the nose on your face; this is not about civil rights but about a tiny intolerant minority forcing its views on society for the express purpose of eroding the principles of what constitutes a family.

    The FACT is that it really does not take a village or two moms or two dads to raise healthy NORMAL children, it really does take a mom and a dad and the religious principles that hold the family together and teach them right from wrong.

    American, although Hatuey's race baiting can be offensive and over the top, I think it is a bad idea to derail this thread further with issues that have nothing to do with the thread topic and will only lead to infractions.

    Don't let Hatuey's offensive race baiting bait you into an infraction; he really is hardly worth the effort dude.

    I wouldn't be too sure about the people of DC being opposed to gay marriage. Two of their coucelpeople are gay, and it is one of the most liberal cities in the country. Plus, their democratically elected councilpeople and mayor are almost all for gay marriage, minus one guy who happens to be a piece of scum (unrelated).

    The real question is, can this get past Congress? In a country where some 60% of the popluation is against gay marriage, congresspeople might have trouble voting against the opinion of their constituents.

    I don't think Thomas has ever voted differently that Scalia and Alito also seems to see how Scalia is going to vote before he decides on issues.

    This is childish reasoning. By your logic it was perfectly fine and morally correct to own a slave BEFORE Lincoln was elected. After all, the majority wanted to have them before he showed up. Blacks must not have evolved enough before Lincoln, huh? You can't have it both ways, either we protect the rights for all and truly share liberty and freedom or we just admit that American morals are based not on spiritual or inner guidance but by mob rule.

    If you have such a narrow-minded view, of that logic, of course it doesn't work.
    Historically, the majority just didn't care enough prior to Lincoln. If you look at the culture of the time period, slavery was just an issue that just wasn't talked about on casual terms, like today. Therfore, "majority opinion" was not applicable, because the majority didn't have an opinion. It wasn't untill Lincoln(actually, Webster first, but I won't get started with him) made it an issue that people took sides and, based on results, we got the desireable outcome.

    So yea, you would be right if you looked at it with such a narrow view and disregarded the big picture.
