    Of course, according to founder of the prominent conservative blog Redstate.com, former CNN and current Fox News contributor Erick Erickson, Christians who support equal rights for gays aren't real Christians.

    [I]f you want to make some sort of argument about sin, please stop embarrassing yourself by trying to make it Levitical. And please understand that when you trot out the shibboleths of the damned, actual Christians immediately recognize your ignorance and start praying for your soul.

    One last note on this. For those of you who claim to be a Christian who worship your own personal Jesus instead of the real one — many of you too rely on the shibboleths of the damned and those of us committed to the gospel really must wonder if you’re sincerely a Christian or just posing as one out of some sense of tradition, standing in your community, or just maliciously posing to undermine the faith.

    And if at this point you think I’m judging you and crying about it, let me go on and say you really aren’t a Christian or, more charitably, you are too ignorant of your faith to have standing in these cases.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    of course

    no different then the loons around here that argue who is really pro-life and who isnt

    you have people that are personally pro-life but understand you should be allowed to do what you want and their choice shouldn't be forced on you

    not good enough for some

    then you have the ones that want it mostly banned accept for life of mother and rape

    thats not even good enough for some unless its complete y banned and they say the other groups arent really pro-life


    all crap and made up

    Otherwise we'd have legislation from the bench, something the framers abhorred entirely. Oh wait...

    It sounds to me like your problem is with the SCOTUS and not the Justice Department. If you take issue with the powers of judicial review that have been in place since 1803 then amend the Constitution to strip that power from the SCOTUS.

    True, but then that isn't going to change. So allowing gay couples that are married the same right as heterosexual married couples is only logical. If you have a problem with that, take it up with the feds and the state getting involved with marriage.

    It is, and denying those benefits on the basis of gender is unconstitutional.

    "Single" isn't a protected classification, but you are free to raise a court case on the matter.

    What do you mean "blocking Christian conservatives as a single entity?" Is there some equal treatment for Christians you think people want to deny?
