The ballot proposition system should not exist as it is in violation of how the country was established. The United States is a representative republic, not a democracy. We elect representatives to act on our behalf. If we disagree with them, we vote them out. The ballot proposition system is closer to true democracy as the majority decides.
In this case, a ballot measure attempted to define marriage. The voters approved the measure by a slim 52% majority. Now, a federal judge has ruled the measure unconstitutional. The appeals process will begin, first in the 9th circuit federal court and then, if they decide to hear the case, the U.S. supreme court.
This journey has only begun...
Has everyone forgotten that our forefathers who wrote our constitution were Christian and came to the U.S. to escape persecution? They came believing that marriage is between one man and one woman for procreation as God created the original family. Were there gays then? Sure! It was not a marriage though. Gays have a partnership that can be legalized the same as any partnership as far as legal rights, wills, benefits, etc. why all the fuss? Personally, that is about as dumb as me suing the city for building the sidewalks too close to my butt because I'm short! quit seeking special attention and get on with your life.

[QUOTE who="WHY VOTE".......... What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
... This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for.... The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are [b]effectively disenfranchising us[/b].
...
WHY VOTE????[/QUOTE]
We vote so that the people can be represented.
We vote to have our voices heard. We vote to have our needs met.
We, as you put it, to try and make life better for ourselves.

There is something very disconcerting about the majority voting on the rights and privagles of the minority.
The problem with "majority rules" is that the minority is not represented and their voices not heard. They don't get what they want or need, but only what we choose to give them - nothing more. It effectively silences them by preventing them from fully participating in the voting system.
This is especially true when the law [b]specifically restricts[\b] their ability to have their needs met.
The courts SHOULD have the power to do this. It keeps the power balance in check, ensures that ALL citizens are represented, and prevents the majority from turning into an oppressive mob.

I say, Who Hoo!

Laughter, fun, and joking are permissible in Islam provided guidelines from Quran and Hadith are followed. For humour to be in accordance with Islam, the joke should not insult anyone, should not frighten anyone, should be within the limits of Islamic tolerance, should tell the truth, should not be offensive, should not contain unIslamic material or promote immorality and indecency.

For humans, androgyne in terms of gender identity is a person who does not fit neatly into the typical masculine and feminine gender roles of their society. Androgynes may also use the term "ambigender" or "polygender" to describe themselves. Many androgynes identify as being mentally between woman and man, or as entirely genderless. They may identify as "non-gender", "gender-neutral", "agender", "between genders", "genderqueer", "multigender", "intergendered", "pangender" or "gender fluid".[
