    really? So there's a "Caucasian" gene? Or a "hispanic" gene?

    No, you can marry a woman and I cannot. That is not equal rights. You have a right that I do not have.

    Which is why America is a REPUBLIC, not a democracy. In a Republic, there are certain rights that the majority CANNOT take away from the majority. That's why we have a constitution. Marriage has been recognized as a fundamental right (Loving v. Virginia 1967) and therefore the California voters had no right to take this away from gays and lesbians. It called avoiding the tyranny of the majority.

    I'm really sick of this ****. We have more important issues to worry about then what gays are doing, Jesus H. Christ, if we put as much effort into energy independence and stopping poverty as we do in demonizing gays, we might actually get somewhere as a species.

    But nope, clearly what the gays are doing is more important, somehow if we stop them from getting married, there'd be no ****ing deficit!

    I hope this judge honors gay rights by keeping the Domestic Partnership laws gays fraught so hard to get. Over turning prop8 would be one of the most homophobic acts the government could inflict of the gay community.

    Sorry about that. You have to TELL me when you're trying to trap someone and I'm at work. When I only have a few minutes to post, I tend to just go straight for the jugular.
