One more time; voters don't get to determine rights. A public referendum regarding marriage equality is illegal.
Rights are rights.
Rights are defined by laws not defined by gay wishes.

more proof that gays are defined ONLY by their sexuality and not by anything else.
http://northdallasgazette.com/2013/12/29/robi...
another gay coming out of the closet wanting to be defined by being gay.
You never see heterosexuals going around stating they are straight.
That is because we are not defined based only on our sexuality. We know what we are sexually and don't need to shout it out to the world.

The latest DD debacle only exposes that gays are the ones failing miserably.
The marriage of the Bride and Groom are a picture of Christ and the Church. Your relationship is a sacrilegious farce.
No one gives a rat's ass about your Christ or your church. And the only thing farcical here is your opinions. They are as meaningless and ineffective as your "crusade". Smirk.

Oh princess, you're so close. Most basic rights are established in our Constitution and it's sister the Bill of Rights.

Now dear, here's a judicial ruling from 1943. It's from the case West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette Read it very carefully and slowly, ok pumpkin??!!

"The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."

Did you catch that dearie? Fundamental rights (which our Supreme Court has deemed marriage to be in 14 different rulings now) are NOT subject to vote. The law has spoken, and it doesn't support your side dipshyt. Have a wonderful day.

Wrong! There is 2 billion Christians in our world that care very much about Christ and church.
The only thing farcical here is the atheist trying to destroy gods word so they will have lots of company in hell. Satan's children will keep spewing false information.

who do you think sets states laws ELECTED OFFICIALS who are elected by VOTERS not appointed judges.
Gays could never win squat if it wasn't for APPOINTED judges.
You seriously need to go back to school and learn how this country's government was set up.
Then you would know how in recent years scum bags judges have ruined this country.
Legislation determines laws, NOT public referendums.
In each and every case where a public referendum declaring marriage to be one man/one woman, those referendums will be overturned.

Please do tell me this (but you won't answer, because you have no logical response):

What has marriage equality taken from your marriage? What did you lose? When my partner and I became a legally married couple, what was the effect on your marriage?

THAT'S why voters don't get to determine marriage equality and THAT'S why judges have ruled on voter referendums denying marriage equality.

See, ya got nuthin'.

If gay wishes came true, you'd realize that you have no valid argument against marriage equality. Simply believing that marriage should be between one man/one woman isn't enough; it's merely an opinion (to which you're more than entitled).

It's the voters that puts public lawmakers in office that appoint judges. When the lawmakers don't follow the wishes of the voters they will be voted out of office. Obama has been the demise of the democrat party. Let see how gay marriage fairs after the 2014 election.

its obvious that Dusty just doesn't get it.
He doesn't understand we elect the lawmakers who make the laws that judges should uphold and don't.
Its LIBERAL judges appointed by LIBERAL politicians who have decided to go against the will of the majority of people and do away with the laws that protected marriage.
Dusty is a true lost cause. I guess he got banged in the rump one too many times. it loosened a few screws in his head. Now he's stuck into believing his phony marriage validated is gay anal lifestyle. What a sad little man he is. He just can't realize we don't accept him.

Go back and ready Jonah's post. Better yet, here it is:

Now dear, here's a judicial ruling from 1943. It's from the case West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette Read it very carefully and slowly, ok pumpkin??!!

"The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."

Did you catch that dearie? Fundamental rights (which our Supreme Court has deemed marriage to be in 14 different rulings now) are NOT subject to vote. The law has spoken, and it doesn't support your side dipshyt. Have a wonderful day.

Are you really that stupid or are you just being obtuse?
There's a difference between legislation and referendums. I'm talking about judges over-ruling referendums; you're talking about judges over-ruling legislation. Kindly show me where I've discussed judges over-ruling laws created by legislators (i.e., legislation).

Otherwise, STFU.
