    Sorry yours is a silly response to a valid comparison about court decisions.
    You had no point but to play the race card—a vacuous argument that calls for nothing better than the response that I gave.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    And the court has admittedly broken that. And btw, where in the Constitution does it prevent congress from enacting personal opinion?

    I am comparing to court cases. There is nothing race about it. Both cases made marriage decisions some people did not agree with. You have no idea what the race card is as far as I can tell. Look at the court cases. They are both the same. I could have called you a homophobic person but did not. No race intended and this is the last i will try and discuss this with you.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    You're dancing around now. Someone's opinion may be the inspiration for a law but it takes a great deal to get one passed which means a lot of people.

    Our constitution is not a personally moral or religious piece of work: it's an ideal drawn from many different sources. So this "opinion" thing you're chasing has no merit.

    It doesn't matter how many people share the same opinion since the point was that all law is based on someones opinion.

    No, they do not have to cite the entire oath, including so help me God (that would actually go against several SCOTUS rulings)(whether they did doesn't matter to whether they have to). You have no actual evidence that they have to recite the oath, including "so help me God". Nor do you have any evidence that they believe in the same God you do. If you believe God is going to spite people for getting in a same sex marriage and they believe God has no issue with same sex couples, homosexuality, I would call that believing in different "God"s.
