    re: Supreme Court agrees to take on same-sex marriage issue[W:141]

    I have a question, dont know if anybody knows but whats the largest amount of court rullings/judges the SCOTUS has ever trumped?
    i mean its like 20+ cases and 45+ judges at this point right? would that be unprecedented to trump that many and rule against equal rights?

    Except they're unaccountable and out of control in general.

    I suspect TX and other states will nullify any ruling on this matter.

    Which exactly what Kennedy said. He wrote that while states are free to fashion their own rules and regulations regarding marriage, they must do so in a way that does not violate protections guaranteed under the Constitution. This is what set Scalia off on his vitriolic response saying that the writing is on the wall.....which is absolutely is.

    I wasn't aware of the "Texas doesn't have to abide by the US Constitution" clause.

    I don't see how it'd be a victory for the anti equality side in either scenario. So a gay couple in michigan can drive to illinois, get hitched, and drive back and they have the same rights either way. This is only a "victory" in a symbolic sense, but the bigots out there want more than that, always have. They want to deny the rights just as much

    lol the desperation of anti-constitutional, anti-rights and bigoted views is hilarious. Equal rights is coming.

    The Constitution doesn't mention marriage
    That would be the people. Rights not mentioned in the constitution are assumed to be rights unless otherwise prohibited by law - 10th amendment i believe. The constitution cannot foresee nor address *every* single right we take for granted everyday. Guess what, it doesn't mention a right to toilets, electricity, housing - but there are various agencies that ensure we in fact cannot be arbitrarily denied access to these

    It also guarantees equal protection under the law, meaning government benefits to marriage cannot be denied to specific groups. The supreme court has also several times ruled there's a constitutional right to marry, like it or not
