    I don't want to live in a mob mentality state/country that allows restrictions on Rights.
    Its the mob mentality that allow idiots to loot, burn, and pillage in the name of BlackLivesMatters as well.

    One must clearly see that the mob mentality is bad all around, and it crosses political lines.

    Actually there are historical cases of SSM. Native Americans used to have SSM. China has cases of SSM. There's even a Christian pastor that performed a SSM in ancient Europe. But where do you think that our Founders looked to when they wrote the BoR's? Did they just string them along out of thin air? Or did they look to history? Making an "appeal to antiquity" is not in and of itself a bad thing. It is in how it is used that makes it worth while or not.

    Tell this to the millions of people around the world in countries like Iran, Syria, Iraq, Germany, China, Mexico, everyone that ISIS deals with. Yes. Rights CAN and often ARE restrained and not even allowed, much less appealed. And yes, ones Right to Life already hinges upon the courts of the day. Death Penalty anyone?

    I noticed you didn't say a single thing about what I said about guns. Or what happens to those in Germany that support homosexuals via speech. Here's another for ya, freedom to practice whatever religion you wish...what happens if a Christian is caught by ISIS members? Peoples Rights are constrained all the time. Denied all the time.

    Re: Should same-sex marriage be allowed?

    What about multiple wives for one husband? Will that be allowed via SCOTUS,too? Or man marries daughter? Mother marries son? Man marries Horse? Woman marries dog?

    And what about religious rights? Can someone refuse to perform the marriage if it goes against their religious beliefs? So what is next? Will religion now be considered a moot point?

    O.. M... G.

    Can horses consent? Can Dogs?

    And religion was able to refuse to marry a couple at their will before this, and will be the same after.

    The theory that the U.S. Government has systematically been dumbing down the citizens for many decades has now been proven on November 8, 2016. In fact, not only proven, but quantified.
