    deal with THAT

    Those who inhibits the rights of others for no good reason - I'd say it's pretty indecent. It's definitely petty.

    They're no different than those who restricted the rights of women and other minorities before them who are now frowned upon by history and whose shame our nation carries.

    Two generations from now, those who voted to ban gay marriage will be looked upon as burdensome at best - hateful at worst.

    You can be a part of ushering in equality or you can be the person your great-grandchildren will be ashamed of.

    It's your choice.

    You do realize that the legal theory he implemented to enforce this were based on early liberal (See founders of the U.S.) ideas.

    Absolute justice and harmony with in the law.

    Tolerance takes a back seat to the rights and liberties of the individual.

    Hint: not all the people in those 31 states voted against gay marriage.

    Posible but having gay judge shows bias from the get go

    Calling out the ruling as being biased because the judge is gay just shows the level of discrimination that still exists in people's minds. If it were a straight judge ruling against GM, proponents of the ban would not remark on his sexuality.

    Judges get their job because they have sworn to uphold state constitutions and balance reason. The slanderous accusation the judge ruled in favor of striking down the ban because he is gay are baseless and only demonstrates the myopia of the right.

    If he were straight it could be biased.

    That's why these things shouldn't be politicized so much.
    Just legalize it and get past it.

    We have bigger fish to fry, than bickering over gay people.
    They deserve to be treated like everyone else.

    Really? Why is a gay judge guaranteed biased, but a strait judge is not?
