    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    And you can show any evidence at all of this?

    If you don't like gay marriage then blame straight people...they're the ones who keep making gay babies.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I just came here to jeer at the zealots, I don't have time to have the at least halfway viable argument regarding the will of the people vs. the courts. Unfortunately, no zealots yet.
    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. -Thomas Jefferson

    Sad but predictable.
    Yep, how dare the will of bigots be overturned by something as inconsequential as the US Constitution.

    Some things shouldn't be voted according to the will of the people. The will of the people shouldn't supercede personal rights. Regardless, Prop 8 was passed by a very narrow margin. I wonder how the results would have been if the Mormons wouldn't have gotten involved as heavily as they did.

    FWIW, according to a new opinion poll, 51% of Californians surveyed would now support same sex marriage if the issue came up for a vote.

    Yeah, remember when those activist justices back in the 50s decided that equal rights meant that you couldn't have separate schools and water fountains even though the people clearly wanted to make blacks into second class citizens?

    No, wait, I remember now. It was the activist justices who had earlier created the nonsense concept of "separate but equal" because of their personal politics.

    But how can that be???!!! Texmaster thinks that only liberal decisions come from activist justices?!!! I am so confused.
