    You most certainly do. Your ignorance of the difference between State and Federal Courts is glaring in your post.

    LOL!
    I can't speak for others, but I personally don't hate Palin, Beck or their fans. Some people like sensationalism and absurdity with their news. To each their own.

    It might be made legal one day.. But it will only be done by judicial fiat, not by consensus..

    Like inter-racial marriage and civil rights. I'm ok with that.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Tolerance is very funny thing. You don't want to get into a "tolerance" debate with me. I'll make you look silly.


    Tim-
    You know, Ive always believed in underpromising and over delivering.

    Since you have such a superiority complex, I find no reason to have a civilized debate with you.

    As far as tolerance in regards to gays.

    Its not about that for me. They should be allowed to do what they want.

    **** I encourage it. We got a population crisis...

    Here's one. Homosexuality is not by any legal measure, a class of people.

    "Feel Good Liberals" and some gays can celebrate now but this is far from a done deal.......What really bothers me is the will of the people has been thrown out over and over again when it comes to this issue.......The 9th circuit covers 9 states, some of which have their own constitutional amendments banning gay marriage.....

    It should be real interesting to see how this plays out.............

    Sorry....legal jurisprudence disagrees with you. Regardless, the equal protection clause does not require that you be a "suspect class".
