states have always decided marriage laws based on state representation of the people in that state.
That is why you have different age requirements for marriage between states.
so yeah it is wrong for a judge to be making these decisions.
and again its the gays who scream about not judging them. How ironic. You judge us not the other way around.
Judicial review...... check into it.

Don't like the American system? Tough titties...... oooops...... you certainly aren't interested in titties.....

you having to ALWAYS respond to others without ever posting a single post of your own makes you boring and just another gay person in here. Nothing special about you at all.
Your post could just be anyone else post. nothing sets any of you apart.

The judges are being used in order to solve the unconstitutional amendments (propblems) that folk like you thought you could rush into law. That's their job. That's why we have them. This is what they are supposed to do.

No, the haven't. Loving v Virginia is a prime example.

And different rules for cousins in the south. Yes, we know why some states have different rules, but your original statement is wrong. The remaining states that would not allow inter-racial couples to marry were forced to by the Supreme Court. The hold out bigot states lost. The same is happening now. Sorry that upsets you. Too damn bad.

The judge isn't making decisions, the judge is interpreting the law. That's why your side is losing. And as noted previously, this is the judge's job, much as you and your fellow bigots wish otherwise.

Where is this mythological judgment that has been cast down on your by "the gays". What post can I find that in?

Oh, and by the way, the only ones screaming are you fundies. And all your screaming changes nothing. You've lost.

because of judges who quote the Constitution and then say they are quoting the Declaration.
and what happen to not judging others ?
i guess its ok to judge if the judge is gay.
guess you haven't made it all the way through to the 14th amendment in the u.s. constitution.

it reads :

http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amend...

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Section 2.

Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state.

Section 3.

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Section 4.

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5.

The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

And it this amendment's guarantee that has been used in court before seated judges that have ruled various laws and bans across this nation as being "unconstitutional" as they are not in compliance with the 14th amendment. repeatedly, attornies and judges have quoted this amendment in court cases dealing with same sex marriage.

clearly, you're quite uninformed.

no, that is the proper way to address issues. that is how civil rights were opened up on the 60s. that is how segregation in public accomodations were done away with.

our u.s. constitution, our laws, our entire system is based upon the public's ability to address legal issues and questions before a judge and to allow them to make the decision. our constitution formed the 3 branches of the government - each with it's own powers and responsibilities in order to keep the other 2 in check. is that what you really want to do? change our system, change our constitution so that any given minority could be subject to the whims of discrimination by the majority? you want to take away the people's rights to go before a judge and address issues with public secular laws? i'm not so sure you'd like that outcome either, all things considered.

After all that, gay couples have a piece of paper claiming that your mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered relationship equates to marriage. That distinction bothers you immensely, in spite of your claim otherwise.
You know as well as I do that nothing can change the inferior status of your relationship. It is visibly a counterfeit, scientifically defective mating behavior, factually fallacious and socially a forced sympathy to denial.

It's legal and there's nothing you can do about it.

And it's not scientifically defective. You just have a very limited understanding and a very strong bias.

What my complaint is about, concerns how he simply repastes the exact same wording over and over and over again. It is just *spam* and tiring to look at much less responf to. When Kimare deviates away from the copy & paste I am much more inclined to give thought and respond accordingly.
Quotes about truth and fact are not diminished by repetition.

The mindless repetition of calling it "spam" is not a thoughtful response.

You clearly have no thoughtful response.

No, no. They have a government supplied document that specifically states that their marriage is equal to yours. That bothers you immensely or you wouldn't dedicate such a substantial portion of your life to coming here to cry about it.
The only one in denial here is you. The law is the law and yet you sit here and cry like a child. "NO! I WON'T ACCEPT GAY MARRIAGE> YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!"
You still haven't figured out yet that no one requires your acceptance or approval. They have the acceptance of their friends, family and most importantly the government. You do not matter.
No matter how much you cut and paste your same tired, cries.
What specifically does that document change about the reality I noted?

Scientifically defective? Awesome. So when you were asked pages ago about sterile couples and couples too old to have kids, you replied that science is helping more of these people have kids. Finally caught your own tail.
We are talking about mating behavior and orientation.

Mating behavior normally functions for heterosexuals.

It NEVER functions for homosexuals.

It seems your brains fell out your tail...

Nope. Wrong again. In a measure of freedom and civil liberty the ole USA comes in at #46.
If you were a single parent then you either had sex out of wedlock (an abomination for which you should be put to death) or you got a divorce (another sin in that what God has joined let no man separate). According to the Bible you are just as guilty and sinful as the gay people. Who the hell are you to be telling people about morality when in the eyes of the Bible you are an abomination? Get that log out of your eye.
You really need to change your handle...

What if earth angel was widowed? Or the victim of adultery, a legit cause for divorce?

Moreover, no human is perfect, and you just judged...

Get that log out of your eye...

See the problem?
