    You obviously have no idea what you are talking about.

    If you have any more information on this, I would like to see it.
    I was hoping you would stop by for this thread. What is your thinking on the ruling. I really value your opinion.

    But do you think someone with openly far right anti-gay views could unbiasedly rule on a gay marriage issue? Would you want a right wing partisan judge to rule on the Patriot Act if that was brought to court?
    Also you can have your beliefs, I could care less how you think about gay people. But don't force those beliefs on other people. Marriage isn't a religious thing in the US legally. If you don't like gay marriage then don't get one. Allowing gay people equal rights under the law won't effect you in any way.
    So then why is it ok for homosexuals and those who support it to force their beliefs that homosexual unions equate with hetero marriage down everyone's throats? An inclusive definition does not mean that the definition itself is not imposing beliefs. All laws impose beliefs upon others. Marriage is a social thing that is put into law by society. So, California asked society to define marriage. They didn't hear what they wanted, so plan B was to make it illegal to have an opinion against gay marriage anyway. Please, don't be blind to the obvious bias and bigotry that is being purported by the homosexual agenda in California.

We have set up checks and balances to ensure this is kept. Thus even the State cannot make laws which violate the rights and liberties of the individual.

    No they are not. They just want to be left alone by religious zealots and their dark age fantasies of imposing Teh Almighteh GAWD!!! upon their private lives. You are having nothing imposed on you as long as you stay the hell out of a gay wedding and don't marry a gay.

    As for the rest of your appeal to nature...its a fallacy. Until you add the requirement of procreation to the marriage license, you have no point with that little rant.

    Not quite true. Gays are demanding that the law treats them the same as every one else.
