    Do you think someone from the Westboro church could make a fair decision? Personally, I don't think a liberal gay judge could make a fair decision on a gay marriage issue.

    Do I have to have a non-religious reason to oppose gay marriage? Am I not entitled to my beliefs?

'Rule' being the key word, there. all i can say on that is that now that we have decided to grant Judges the right to dictate our marriages; i can't wait to laugh my head off when a fundamentalist Christian judge invalidates marriage off of no-fault divorce. hooray for kings!

    as for those who think this is going to be a victory - you don't win in American politics by giving the vast majority of it's citizens the middle finger. all you do is provoke backlash. the homosexul-marriage advocacy community should have tried to convince the American citizenry of the rightness of their cause, like the Civil Rights movement whom they claim kinship to but whose lessons they ignore.
    Ummmm...more and more people are accepting gay rights, and gay people. Check out the polling over the last40 years or so. Further, nothing in this is giving the finger to any one. If it costs liberals some votes, so be it, I would rather do the right thing.

There was no outcry when this was placed on the ballot in the first place, and a gay judged was the one who ruled on the gay marriage ban...

    Can you read? I've already provided you a link, but here's a good quote:

    From Justice Anthony Kennedy regarding Colorado Amendment 2:

    Its sheer breadth is so discontinuous with the reasons offered for it that the amendment seems inexplicable by anything but animus toward the class that it affects; it lacks a rational relationship to legitimate state interests.
    A state constitutional amendment CAN NOT violated the Federal Constitution.

    What about that can you not understand?

    If you want to impose your will on another person, you're damned skippy it better have a nonreligious rationale behind it. Welcome to America.
