    Post #4 and the old "activist judge" excuse rears its laughable head.

    I'm sure we'll hear that title being throw around in the coming weeks.... But what happens when Scotus upholds the decision?? Gasp!!

    Sad but predictable, indeed.

    You missed my point. You don't agree with it, so your calling him an activist judge. Have you read the ruling? Do you see anything in there that is a blatant example of "activism"? He used the Constitution as his basis for his ruling, you know the whole equal rights, and freedom thing.

    Great, so when does the appeal get filed and make this ruling pointless again?
    I know right, if people wouldn't ignorantly be against legal gay marriage, we could be done with it already.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Can you please read the ruling and then respond point by point to it as to where you find this ruling to be "activist" vs. logical based on the presented arguments.

    If you can do that for me, then you can say "activist judge". Until that point, the only thing you're doing is saying that gays can't be reasonable people (and with your later post - can't be as reasonable as heterosexual married people).
