    Nuns. Only Nuns should hear this case. Do we have any judges who also happen to be nuns?

    Oh, wait - married to Jesus.

    Spinster elementary school teachers with clasp sweaters and glasses on the tips of their noses? Do we have any of those?

    Judge overturns Calif. gay marriage ban - Yahoo! News

    Despite the favorable ruling for same-sex couples, gay marriage will not be allowed to resume immediately. Judge Walker said he wants to decide whether his order should be suspended while the proponents of the ban pursue their appeal in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

    And what about his ruling makes you think it wasn't based in sound law?? Be specific.






    Every attorney I've talked to, conservative-liberal-moderate, has said the defense presented a piss-poor joke of a case.

    I've already addressed this multiple times.
    You need to present a clear and factual argument, as to why it shouldn't be allowed.

    Quit trying to force your morality on the rest of us and this wouldn't happen.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes, that is what I said. Glad we are in agreement on something. What's more, I even think it is the right thing to do, even if I don't like it.
