    Thats not it, something that goes against the Constitution shouldn't be up for a vote. If Prop 8 was about eliminating gun rights in California, and it passed I doubt you would have the same view. This vote basically told the 14 amendment to go f itself. And now the courts are rightfully stepping in.

    Zyphlin, equal protection prevails after due process. Due process, is the key here. It is the same as "reasonable" in legal circles. This ruling is due process, but my beef is in the Judges ruling, and the language of it. She cites a lack of due process, but that's not true? Equal protection can be legislated for, "provided" the due process test is met. That's it and that's all.

    Counted, sorted, and off to the Tyson packaging plant. I'm sorry, it may not even happen this go around; but gay marriage will eventually be allowed. It's a dumb thing for us to get upset about, it's a dumb thing for us to sidetrack ourselves on. When there are so many other things going on that needs our attention more. Just acknowledge the individual's right to contract and be done with it.

    You are forgetting the polygamy issue as well as people who are related wanting to get married for the benefits provided without sex involved............In fact we have something similar here in Washington in that older people who are related can be involved in a domestic partnership with full benefits.............

    These people have the same rights under the 14th amendment as gays do.............

    Nope, sure doesn't. It doesn't mention anything speciically. What it does say is "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

    You understand, yes?

    Why do you care, Navy? I lived in the same state with some 20,000 polygamists, and the sky didn't fall. I see no reason why consenting adults can't marry other consenting adults without Navy Pride or anyone else butting his nose into their marriage.

    Why is the limitation to men and women? Why not children marrying children or children marrying men or women? If you are going to expand equal protection under the law to include sexual orientation you cannot descriminate against any sexual orientation.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
