And all I want is the right to be left the **** alone by your churches and have the same freedom to enjoy the same rights of inheritance and power of attorney between my partner and myself that you do with your partner.
    You can be left the **** alone. It is illegal for the Mormons to force you and your boyfriend apart. It's illegal for them to harass you or stop you from being gay. What churches are attacking your personal life? What churches are telling you and forcing you to not be gay? They have a right to believe that homosexuality is a sin, but they can't stop people from being gay. However, they do that the right to vote. A Christian's beliefs are equal to a homosexual's beliefs. Each person gets 1 equally valuable vote.
    How about this one? I don't care what you and "fish market" do in the privacy of your own home, but stop running ads in papers to announce your marriages, stop plastering your hypersexual advertisements all over television and sit down and STFU while the rest of us get on with our happy lives together. And when she gets sick with chick cancer, well you can just hope the hospital lets you in to see her or that you shelled out the money for a power of attorney. And when "Melons" ups and croaks, well you can give a huge chunk of what you worked your entire lives together for to the government. But I don't have to because well...I'm not dating a tuna can, which I find morally appalling because its...icky.

    How ****in well do you think that would go over with you if you were in that situation, pal?
    Why can't the homosexual movement leave the churches alone? Why do they have to have "gay pride" parades and trounce around in thongs and diapers? Why can't they sit at home and keep their sexuality private? Why do they have to call everyone who opposes them "bigots" and force their beliefs on others? I'm so tired of people judging me as a homosexual hater because I believe homosexuality is wrong. I'm tired of being called a bigot and being harassed for simply holding my beliefs. Why can't the social liberals leave me alone and allow me to vote like everyone else? Things go both ways. I am in that position too, and I've been harrased for holding my views. Now I have an entire state saying that my views are illegal in the first place.
    And what does the biology have to do with it for homos that is so special that it can't be applied to heteros?
    The fact that the two unions are biologically and socially different. An apple and an orange are both fruit, but they aren't the same thing. A homosexual union and marriage are both unions, but neither are the same. It's not wrong to define something that is different differently.
    First of all, you have no rights as a voter to use that vote to make other voters second class citizens. Secondly, unless he added an addendum that requires you, legally, to go meet and greet every new gay married couple, you haven't had jack **** shoved down your throat. All your whining and complaining is because you didn't get your way and have the chance to elevate yourself above your fellow citizen.
    If it's on the ballot then I do have that right. Homosexuals are not second class citizens. How are they? Homosexuality is not like race or religion. It's a sexual orientation just like heterosexuality, bestiality, pansexuality, asexuality, etc. Why is homosexuality superior to bestiality? And I would have a liberal definition of marriage shoved down my throat. So, with the overturn of Prop 8 those who voted for it don't have their rights trampled on for supporting something that is widely regarded by the majority of the nation to be constitutional? Why didn't they decide if it was constitutional before they allowed voters to vote on it?
    Go ahead...ask me if I have the first ounce of sympathy for your pitiful plight?
    So you don't care about my rights, yet we all need to bow down to what you believe are rights.
    You have no rights to vote away rights of other people. We are a Democratic Republic, not an inquisition mob.
    So, as a Democratic Republic we don't have the right to vote? What rights were taken away? It was never a right in California to legalize homosexual marriages. All that happened was a definition for legal marriage being establish by the citizens within the Democrat Republic.

    We are not a nation of "majority rules". Laws that infringe on the rights of people shouldn't stay just because 51% of the people have the personal belief that it should.

    Glad to hear this was overturned.

    Re: California gay marriage ban overturned: report

    Honestly, while I am all for gay rights and legal same-sex marriage I am still annoyed about this ruling because I do not think this is a matter for the Supreme Court. Marriage as a matter of law is not about the relationship itself, but the stance of a government on that relationship. Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution is marriage or anything similar put under the authority of the federal government, save D.C. As such I would say this reserves the matter of legal marriage to the states.

    There are many constitutional issues with regards to gay marriage, especially when it concerns states where it is legal, but this is not one of them.

    The majority of voters in California are anti-gay marriage because of Obama?

    It's reserved by the People as per the 9th amendment.
