    Why is tyranny at a local level better than tyranny at a federal level?

    Because you have more ability to combat that tyranny at the local level.

    Of course that also assumes that it will be a tyranny....which brings me to the point of this whole thing. The pro gay marriage crowd seems to want their will imposed on everyone else because they feel that the anti-gay marriage crowd is engaging in a tyranny of their beliefs. What the heck makes you think that one tyranny will be any better than the other? Why not just avoid the whole damned mess by setting things up so that any tyranny will be small, local, and easily avoidable? Could it be that your goal isn't really equality all but, rather, straight up imposition of your will at the highest level you can manage to impose it?

    TheBlaze TV’s S.E. Cupp on Tuesday announced she is pulling out of CPAC until the annual conservative gathering welcomes GOP groups that support gay marriage. Two prominent groups representing gay Republicans, GOProud and the Log Cabin Republicans, will reportedly not be in attendance at CPAC.


    “I go to CPAC every year. I love speaking there. It’s a great opportunity for conservatives, young and old from all over the world, to get together and sort of touch base,” Cupp said on MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”


    CPAC has reportedly permitted groups advocating for gay marriage to attend, however, they are unable to sponsor the event. Cupp said that is a bit of a “cop-out” on the issue.
    “Ive been thinking about this a lot, and I know a lot of people on my side of the isle have been struggling with this for some time now too,” she added. “I’ve been scheduled to speak at CPAC this year, and I don’t think I can until this issue is reconciled and figured out.”


    Cupp said Republicans are divided on gay marriage, an issue that the party can “no longer seem to avoid.” She explained that several Republicans, including four former governors, have signed a legal brief arguing that gays have a constitutional right to marry. The brief will be submitted to the Supreme Court this week in support of a lawsuit to overturn California’s Prop 8, which limited marriage to the union of a man and a woman.
    good for her!

    Always nice to see people stand up for equal rights and against discrimination.

    How is expanding rights tyranny? How is allowing SSM harming straight people? That argument is so ridiculous I can't even believe people actually use it. Anti-SSM laws are tyranny, and it matters not whether they are brought on by the state, or the federal government, they are wrong either way, and should be brought down.

    The federal government shouldn't decide one way or another. It should decide on a neutral standard for all citizens. The neutral standard would be: Call you union whatever you want, marriage, civil union etc - all will still be looked at equally under the rule of law and should not dependent on regionalities. If the government decide it'll only allow 'marriages' then it shouldn't legally define it as anything other than a legal union between two parties. THAT is the neutral stance.
