    That doesn't tell me why gay people shouldn't be allowed to get married.
    The most your and other arguments have ammounted to is, "it offends me."

    That kind of breaks the whole conservative dynamic of personal responsibility and absolute justice.
    You guys contradict yourselves all the time.

    Nice try though.

    Different label, doesn't piss the majority off, get's the important stuff done.
    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.

    All I can recommend is that you read the 14th amendment. This has been the law of the land for well over 100 years.

    I don't give a flying rat's ass what you do in your church. But as long as the government is passing out benes for being in a committed relationship, I ain't gonna get barred from having them just because Jeebus and you think I'm bad people.

    Get over it.

    OH NO!!! Have to make a ****ing POLITICAL STATEMENT and shove it in everyone's faces.

    "WHAT?? You don't like Gay Marriage?? YOU BIGOT!! HA HA WATCH US RAM IT THROUGH THE COURTS YOU KNUCKLE DRAGGING DUMBASSES!!!"

    That's the issue and why I do NOT back Gay Marriage.
    The majority are not allowed to infringe upon the rights of the minority. No matter how much you want it to be true. The majority can like or not like anything they want; but if they wish to act against the rights and liberties of the minority then they're just up ****'s creek without a paddle.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    The anti gay marriage people use religion, tradition, and popularity to defend themselves. All of which are not defended under the constitution.
    Prop 8 was a vote on a state constitutional amenment that is how it works

    So no religious judges either? They should all recuse themselves?

    Sure, the fact that they had a vote and the majority of people voted in favor of traditional marriage. Yet now they rule it's unconstitutional when many states have done similar things with no problems. It's a ramming through of liberal values. They lost at the ballots, so they had to force it through via activist judges. It's wrong to trample on the voters like that.

    Great, this has deteriorated into another gay rights thread instead of discussing the actual case itself.

    Look, can we just agree to go to those same old posts since no one here is changing their minds on this any time soon? And can we discuss the case?
