    Then what, exactly, is the purpose of the court? What you're essentially saying is that all laws are good and sacrosanct and should never be reviewed for proper Constitutionality.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Overturning laws that violate civil rights of a minority is "not to legislate."

    No, I am saying the courts can not change law they can only show if it is constitutional.

    When the law is found to be unconstitutional it is defacto null and void. What part of that sails over your head?

    Congress is free to write a new law. Do you somehow think an overturned law remains in effect?

    I think he's saying they should not rule one part of a law unconstitutional yet rule another part constitutional.

    Or something?

    Nope. Because they aren't actually "changing" laws, only striking them down, either in whole or in part, when they violate the Constitution. This then just simply makes the law neutral or reverts it to what it was before the unconstitutional part/law was enacted. In the case of same sex marriage bans that are found unconstitutional, it simply means that there can be no restriction on sex/gender within the rules of who can obtain a marriage license from the state, which means that the law is simply at a point where it was before, only where the state cannot keep people from getting married with nothing written into the laws just due to gender, as they did in the past.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
