Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.
WHY VOTE????
Now stop and think about that for a minute...What do you suppose would have happened in the 60's/70's if we let the states vote on whether or not interracial marriage should be legal? Would it have been acceptable at that time, because you know there were a lot of bigots who would have said NO WAY!

Yes. "Racist" is a vague political emotionalism of no fixed defined meaning. It is similar to the invented emotionalism "Homophobe". The purpose of emotionalisms of like kind is to move the political debate ever leftward in order to achieve revolutionary objectives.

I need to stop you right there, you homosexual.

The majority of states allowed blacks and whites to marry before Loving.

In fact the state that was the defendant in Loving allowed all races to marry with one exception, being of course blacks could not marry whites.

You've already been humiliated: to top it off, the very same Supreme Court laughed you homosexuals out of court in Baker v Nelson, and reportedly (if Bob Woodward is to be believed) Thurgood Marshall, THE Civil Rights attorney, fell off his chair.

Your point is well taken. One chink in the argument though, is that the same ones who loudly demand the nation should observe republican ideals when it suits them are also the most vocal in their demands that the nation is "a democracy" when it likewise suits them.

This has been an especial dilemma since the revolution, afterward of which the judicial system was changed to reflect revolutionary change, rather than strict constitutional interpretation - the Republican's 14th Amendment notwithstanding.

The outcome has been the establishment of a dysfunctional arbitrary and capricious Government. The elimination of individual rights and the replacement of those individual rights with easily manipulable group "rights" has left the individual powerless and uncertain before an all-powerful central Government. No one knows where he stands.

The very first national polls that came out in favor of inter-racial marriages did not happen until 1992! Before then the majority of Americans were in fact against inter-racial marriages! Care to try again? LOL

This isn't rocket surgery...
Maybe the 14th does all it says it does, but only to a certain point and only for a normal society. The 14th never took or considered two males or two females as being normal. The gay cult is once again twisting, shaping and mixing up meanings of words to suit temselves.

That's what I've learned from Topix.
Why are liberals so selfish ? the liberals in the topix forum only care about their odd agenda and to restructure the rights all citizens have to suit their own odd lifestyle.

The job was left to the state because the SCOTUS had ruled in 1883 in Pace v Alabama that such restrictions don't violate equal protection.

The actual fact is that The Racial Integrity Act of 1924 prohibited Whites from marrying all those who were classified as non-White and vice versa, not just Blacks, but Native Americans and those of Asian descent as well.

It took 84 years to get the Supremes to overturn the 'humiliation' that was Pace v Alabama sweetie, it won't take us nearly as long to overturn Baker, in fact, the very basis for the Minnesota Supreme Court ruling no longer holds true as there are now states which recognize the right of same sex marriage. Its value as precedent is done and the next time it is dragged before the Court it will be for its last rites.

Stupid, I asked for a *special* right gay people are asking for.
That's easy .. The right to be recognized and have SSM, the right to teach homosexuality in "Public" schools, the right to marry someone who is HIV/AIDS infected so they can get government assistanace for the entire household, I can go on and on.

Lets just face the facts, the reason for all of this attention is because the gays feel segragated from the rest of society, so they have to stomp their feet and yell. The fact is that we don't care and you will have to settle for second class people, just like the Feds refer to you as, deal lwith it and m ove on with you odd lifestyle, start a commune some where in t he vast desert

get real; homosexuals not only have no leader whatsoever, you're not even allowed to appear in your tv ads.

Produce a single tv ad that lets a homosexual appear.

You're just a stepping-stone. Who will be the "new gay," Ricky? You don't care. So why should anyone care about your little issue that the Supreme Court doesn't seem to care about at all?

Two Supreme Court Justices have already said they will vote against you.

Doesn't look good for you, not in your lifetime.
