Now, how do we live with these other 5 states allowing ssm? We prevent our own states first from recognizing those marriages and then, hopefully begin an initiative for a federal amendent.
Yes, I can see your argument there, I think that does apply. I'll stand corrected. I very much do think you have every right to not live with the decision and take appropriate measures. However, once on the books, we'll both have to obey the laws...albeit whining about it.Don't tell people to live with the law while you are doing everything in your power to change the law. It's patronizing to say the least. You are insinuating that same sex marriage supporters do not live with the law and that opponents do, when the reality is nobody is really happy with the situation we have at present.
Yes you are correct, I again, stand corrected. I was having a tit for tat with another member who was telling me I'd have to live with the law and, by mistake, got caught up in that. You are correct here, CT, I appreciate you setting me straight. When looking at this argument of yours, it makes sense. I would never allow ssm to be determined by some Robe in a court or exec in an office, I wouldn't sit still one second. And I know see...to be perfectly fair...I shouldn't expect you to sit idle either.How dare you insinuate that same sex marriage supporters must limit themselves to one front while opponents are free to fight on the state and federal level.
Are you as well supportive of a US Constitutional amendment initiaitve...just to see where the entire nation is on this issue....and however it goes, we'd both live with that?
