    I dunno. He has his moments. Gotta love Jallman though. He is one of my favorites here (even if we do get sideways from time to time.)

    Anyways, glad to see him on the right side of the fence just the same.

    Due process was served yesterday when Prop 8 was overturned by a federal judge. Now it will be in the hands of the SCOTUS where same sex marriage will be made legal across the US. The marriage bigot pinheads that thought they were winning when they voted on Prop 8 will be the ones that created the case to make same sex marriage legal in every state. I love this.

    The California Supreme Court held the vote "Constitutional" on state Constitutional grounds because prop 8 itself amended the California Constitution.
    The issue is whether the law violates that United States Constitution, which it clearly does. All you have to do is look at the incredibly weak case that the proponents of the law put up to understand that they really don't have much of an argument. Even very conservative legal scholars have said that it will be very difficult to make a case for the restriction.

    Unfortunately, I don't think it's going to be quite that easy. This will be a fairly long ongoing battle. Just as the battle for civil rights took time, this will too. However, it will be worth it in the long run.

    If the Founding Fathers were so worried about gays getting married, you know what they would have done? They would've written it into the Constitution. They didn't address marriage at all. That's how important they thought marriage was. They left it alone (mostly because they also didn't think much of women's rights, so...)

    And there is also nothing in the Constitution that says you can't smoke dope.

    Clearly, someone needs to sit down and read our foundational documents again because someone has no idea what they say.
    Read em again? Don't make me laugh. I called an entire culture of people deviants, which they are by all measures.

    oh, please

    People who believe that they are morally superior than everyone else generally don't have a hard time with it.
