    I don't think you were on topic, to begin with. Do you have any evidence that proves the marriage was about Justice Ginsburg's protruding finger of defiance?

    Well,I was ,admittedly, a little one sided on that post. I think that just about everyone with power uses fear. I do however, believe that I see it used more or at least more blatantly on the right.

    I certainly do not. Just an opinion. I don't have a problem with it personally. I think that while, if that was in the mix with her intent, and it may be inappropriate given her office...it makes me chuckle a little. We are all human.

    And this isn't about "feeling", it's about law and what Ginzberg SHOULD do if she is to honor her oath and position. But she gave that up long ago and there is no reason to expect she would follow it now.
    Performing a wedding when asked to is hardly the same thing as a justice at an anti-gay marriage rally flipping off the gays. Sorry if you cannot see that. There is no basis for recusal here, despite your personal emotions.

    I don't think Obamacare is Constitutional, and I don't care what the SC said about it. Same with marriage, it's between a man and a woman, nothing else.
    No...I'm not asking you to change your mind at all. You are free to your personal beliefs. However, your personal beliefs do not change the facts: Gay marriage is identical to straight marriage in many parts of the country and growing. Your personal views do not change that.

    I think according to the law there is, despite YOUR personal emotions. But it really doesn't matter, law or not, right or not, she won't recuse herself. She long ago abandoned her oath and has long demonstrated that what the Constitution actually says means nothing to her.

    It is your misinterpretation of the law. There is nothing about a justice performing a gay wedding that would require recusal than there would be about a justice performing a straight wedding. It goes back to the same clowns that said that the circuit court judge hearing the prop 8 case should recuse himself because he is gay while not understanding that their same logic would apply to a straight judge. This is nothing more than rhetoric based on emotions from the far-right because they don't want to see that last vestiges of bigotry to fall across the country. Sorry...but ask any legal scholar, there is no basis for recusal here. There just isn't.

    Or does my religion not dictate your actions? If that's the case, then your religion cannot dictate the actions of gay couples. If it's not the case, then you have to give me your wallet to avoid oppressing my religion.
