Let's not pretend that you are concerned about "We the people". You are concerned with nothing but your own impositions. There is no logical reason to not allow same-sex marriage, only subjective nonsense. That is where a line must be drawn in a legal system based on liberty, it must contain an objective element that exceeds the subjectiveness. Just because you do not like something does not mean it must be promulgated into law. Can people like you comprehend this? Your reasoning takes away freedoms and imposes your selfish restrictions on an entire population of people, same-sex marriage proponents reasoning allows everyone to be free and live their lives. Absolutely nothing in your life is being diminished due to same-sex marriage. You, on the other hand, are creating 2nd class citizens by allowing a government based on liberty to restrict people under the law. That is what this is about, people like you wanting to feel like you are above another group of people. So do not pretend to care about "We the people."
Our Constitution is not a toy, it is not a means to impose what you want society to be like. The Constitution is meant to be law imposed on the government, not the people. It restricts the government and allows for freedoms to its citizens. The fact that you would support a constitutional amendment that bans same-sex marriage only shows your lack of knowledge on what our system of government is.

On the other hand, an amendment to the US Constitution banning gay marriage *would* yank the issue from the constituents' decision-making process.
As they should. Frankly it shouldn't be any of Congress' goddamn business what we decide to do in DC, except inasmuch as it affects the workings of the federal government.Originally Posted by Charles Martel
