    This was true years back, it is not now. The polls are quite clear.

    No, you choose to rule others by forcing them to comply with your personal beliefs on marriage.

    Me? I am choosing not to support my government forcing that decision on people.

    If you were correct, states would be passing bills overwhelmingly in support of your beliefs, but that's not happening...

    So, then how do we follow the Constitution without the courts to enforce it? The honor system? Each person gets to decide what parts of the Constitution apply to whom and what parts do not apply to others?

    The purpose of the court is to apply the law fairly and equitably the way it is written. Regardless of the will of the people at any given time. If we don't like the law, we have the ability to change it through our elected representatives, and then the court would have to enforce those changes. Until that, we have to all live under the same law, adjudicated by those appointed or elected to the bench to do just that.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Purpose and application are two different things...

    Marriage is a license to enter into a contract between two people, issued and arbitrated by the government, and has been throughout history (in the Christian religion anyway) since Martin Luther defined it such in the sixteenth century.

    Inertia. Many states passed constitutional amendments, and the requirement to overturn that is higher.

    Of course, many states no longer need to do this. Courts work just as well.

    You only decided this once it became obvious that same-sex marriage was going to become legal nationwide. Admitting that to yourself is the first step.

    Beer and hotdogs are different things as well, but they go together very well, just as the court (application) and the law (purpose) do in this instance.
