It's funny how republicans talk about small government, freedom and liberty, but when it's their views that big government is enforcing, they find denying liberty to others totally acceptable. If you don't like gay marriage, then don't get gay married.

Equal treatment under the law of the land. Individual inalieable rights as a free citizen of this United States of America, according to the U.S. Constitution. Isn't that what this country was founded on? We cannot pick and choose what liberties we are going to enforce and what ones we are going to ignore are we? If we do. We are not a true free society.

The State needs Sex Police so the right marriages occur and the unwarranted marriages do not occur.
Republican gays can marry, Democrat gays cannot.
Larry Craig could marry Barney Frank though, the Supreme Court would give the blessing.
Governments shouldn't bother with such nonsense and the Supreme Court should rule it all frivolous.
You can't make this stuff up.

I don't care. But, if they decide they want a divorce, they bettter plan on paying for it themselves and not depend on the government.

I agree this isn't about marrying a dog or cat, but what would prevent future marriages between multiple partners? We say the government has no business dictating love between people, but could it come someday where 2 men want to marry a woman or 2 women want to marry a man? Do we regulate it to just 2 "people"? Polygamy is already against the law, but why should it be? If we start letting same sex partners marry each other because they are in love. Polygamist can argue that they too are in love with each other and their multiple partners?

Amazing how when California voters banned "gay" marriage, the "progressives" couldn't accept that decision. They had to find a "progressive" judge who overturned the will of the people. If the "progressives" don't like the way people vote, then they find a judge to legislate from the bench.

Said by: Minotian "Does your gay dude neighbor ever help shovel anyone's walk, help rake the little old lady's leaves across the street or push her out when she's stuck? No. Of course not. Again, useless people." How does someones sexual orientation have any bearing whatsoever on whether they help out a neighbor,UNLESS that neighbor happens to be a bigoted, self-rightous *******?

Minotain said: "A joining or union of two pickel-bumpers or muff-munchers is NOT EQUAL to a legitimate man/woman MARRIAGE because they can't naturally produce children within the pairing. Simple as that."
So, using your logic, an old or infertile couple can't get married either.

I don't know if blaming the editors is necessarily fair, but definitely "Minotian's" comments ought to be culled from the conversation (if the name-calling qualifies as such). If you can't say something even halfway decent... well, your ignorance probably knows no restraint anyway.

Ah, well then. Clearly, quoting the Epistles overstep that invisible line.

What if a married woman is at a party that turns into an oar g, is seduced, copulates with several men, becomes pregnant, gives birth, and the child is XYYY at birth and becomes gay when reaching adulthood? Republican, too, to add insult to injury.
Can the husband kill the newborn infant because it is an unwanted child and pregnancy due to immoral activity? Can he be the judge of what is moral or immoral? Can she be stoned to death along with the male seducers, maybe even a couple of female seducers too for causing an unwanted pregnancy, in the opinion of the husband, the injured party?
Marriage can sometimes not be sacred.
And the US gov wants to be a part of this mess?
Gotta be something else better to do.
Like get a grip on the economy and the spending. It is all planned to fail, so get it in your head.
It's a mockery of a travesty of a sham.

We need less government.
I want government out of daily affairs . . . except when it discriminates against people I don't like . . . then I want activist judges and lots of federal laws.
We need more government.
There was a quote somewhere out there that said some thing about Judging not, lest ye be judged. I believe the Big Man kept the judging thing for his own. I would like to know where you guys figure you could steal his right to judge people.
If "love is more than a sexual act," why oh why oh why is the court addressing this?
Who says same-sex couples can't draw up contracts? Civil unions were all about contractual rights, of property, of living wills, etc., right? If they weren't, I've been misled.
The term "marriage" over time has meant one thing: a union between a man and a woman. Word history of the word "marriage" shows that it meant the act of consummation itself: if you did it, you were "marrying" one another. Check it out in a good dictionary.
If same-sex couples want to solemnize their relationships, invent a word that all are willing to use. Obviously, "civil union" didn't take. Why does the word have to be "marriage?"

According to....well, of course. A Democrat.
So all the citizens in California who voted for Prop 8? Their votes didn't matter because....?

So the voters were confused?
Yeah, only when a leftist result is at stake...

So "confused" voters' results shouldn't stand, when leftists don't get the result they deem appropriate?
I get it. It's "hanging chads" deja vu, all over again. Sore losers.
Real time example: Pres. Obama won re-election, and there's no one going to court over that, even if some people didn't care for the result.
Rest assured, lefties. We can respect the results of a vote. Obviously, better than you.
What did I just say about sore losers?
You've got to pay attention, billgrr, in spite of your being a top poster and all.
I read an article or two about Melowese Richardson, the Cincinnati poll worker that Dusty referenced. She considered it her duty to get the President re-elected.
One of the faithful, eh, billgrr?
C'mon, Veritas, that's the one we know about, right?
Veritas, two pieces that were interesting reading about voter fraud.

The second would probably be more to a non-partisan's liking than the first. But that's just my opinion.
Voters suppression and gerrymandering political districts are a thousand times the problem you are so worried about. Disenfranchising millions of voters seems to be ok if Republicans are doing it.
