Prop 8 didn't make polygamy illegal. And you call me stupid?
I didn't say it did, stupid. I said it's another law against it. And it is, stupid.

You donít comprehend what anyone is saying, no this thread is not about "marriage equality" that phrase is not in the title, it is about the overturn of a specific proposition in California, called prop 8
Here I will print it for you
Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage
Back to the "OFF TOPIC!!!" argument against marriage equality again? Ugh. It didn't work the first few hundred times and it won't work this time.

Maybe try the "YOU'RE A LIAR!!!" one.

Or the "Not popular enough!!!" one.

How about the child rape one? Or the welfare cheat one.

"Frankie Rizzo" is just a troll who is flying under false colors. He's actually against gay marriage, and attacks anybody in the forum in favor of it, using the red herring of polygamy. Bet he has never posted in a forum about polygamy...

Rose_NoHo is a liar, faking that she supports gay marriage when really she just wants to spit venom.

She thinks she will be respected and can get away with any bad behavior simply for pretending to support equality.

Everyone can easily see right through her.

Who but some loser punk like you would spit venom at a group of people like gays whom have nothing to do with you nor cause harm and are looking for a basic right to live their lives freely yet you just don't like it.
I'll bet my penny collection there's at least 12,904 things people don't like about you yet even I would protect your ability to live free in a free country.
You're a putz. Mind your own God damned business and leave gays alone idiot. Have a good week -
All that effort to throw a tantrum and show the world how juvenile you are, and yet in all the nonsense not even a semblance of a response.

BTW, since you agree Article V isn't made up, perhaps now you could read it. Then we could discuss how it was violated during the drafting of the 14th Amendment.
If we ever get you educated that far, which is highly doubtful, we can then discuss the use of martial law during the ratification when the vote didn't go the way they liked the first time.

I don't understand? What does discussing Article V have to do with Prop 8? You want to rehash the ratification of the 14th Amendment, go right ahead. The rest of us realize that's all been settled DECADES ago.
We didn't expect you to understand, critical thinking is a difficult thing for you.

But you keep your head in the sand.

WHY VOTE wrote:
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????
This is not a republic, it is a democracy. Your vote is just a suggestion for the appointed official. How and when this changed from our founding fathers, I am not sure and do not really care as it is futile.
