So, basically, you want to be able to force your personal religious interpretations on other Americans and other churches, that do not share them.
I see.
And be sensible, if God wants to stop Gay people from forming families, all He has to do is stop creating them, stop sending them beloved soul-mates and beautiful children, and stop blessing their families.
And He has not chosen to do that. Quite the opposite.
He doesn't need you to be making the decisions for Him.
Sure that's it fruitloops. Try to relax.

So, you believe that any majority of Americans should always be able to vote away the basic civil and human rights from any minority, for no reasons other than religious belief and animus?
No civil right was voted away, rather a civil right that ALL Californians have, was simply codify with a few simple words.

"Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California"
And that the disenfranchised minority should never be able to redress the grievance in court?
ALL Americans have that right.
You want to completely remove the ability of the courts to address the constitutionality of any law?
Why bother to live in this country, if you don't like the systems of checks and balances our Founding Fathers created?
Who protects the will of the majority to have their votes counted? The issue was simple. Californians voted on a definition of marriage, not only as old as the republic, but one that all Americans, both men and women, had understood since then.

No religious view is "forced" on anyone. If you're that concerned, petition the government to remove "In God We Trust" off our currency, and have Christmas removed from the list of federal holidays.
And be sensible, if God wants to stop Gay people from forming families, all He has to do is stop creating them, stop sending them beloved soul-mates and beautiful children, and stop blessing their families.
Gay people, can, and do, form families without the state. At least they can do so with out being subject to criminal sanction, unlike some folks in Utah.
And He has not chosen to do that. Quite the opposite.
He doesn't need you to be making the decisions for Him.
Nor the state.

And you keep your freedom to be a just a plain old dumbazz , and gays still have their civil right to marry, just like any one else. What a maroon.
Most of these bigots hate only the Christians, they endorse Islam as long as they don't have to live in an Islamic country.

Your hero in history would be Pol Pot, he thought just like you. Your ideal country today would be North Korea. God created a man and a woman, he set everything in motion. I doubt he is deciding on each birth which way that baby will swing someday .

It always makes me laugh when 3 people survive something like a tornado out of hundreds dead, and they thank some God, it is like they are saying this "God" murdered everyone else personally, but decided not to kill them.

Not a pretty picture

Or when a medical student goes into deep debt working his way through medical school, rises to the top of his profession and saves the life of someone through heroic efforts of medicine and the family thanks some "God"

It is like a way of avoiding reality, or responsibility, or any way of expressing gratitude to the efforts of actual people.

It is pathetic

I do not know how much you know about history, but our "First Chief-Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Jay said and I quote: "The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the Word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts." Providence has given to our people the choice of their rules, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.".....Our forefathers would turn over in their graves if they knew what has happened to our Nation. If we had Christians rulers, we would not be in this downfall of our Nation as we are now. God Jehovah, is our Creator and we owe Him our lives for being here in the first place and if you have a quarrel with me personally, I suggest that you are pointing to the wrong person, for you must take it to the Father God Jehovah (Jesus) Father of the universe and ask Him why he created man and woman, not man & man or woman & woman. If man and man were what he intended in the first place, where were children coming from? Would he have just Created man or woman? All that I am saying is that because mankind up until the past several years has always accepted God's defination of marriage of man & woman, why does man say now that it has to be changed to fit their lifestyles? We cannot and will not be able to fight against our Creator because whoever tries will suffer in the end. My husband and I of 55 years have studied the Scriptures most of our marriage and we believe that God is in control and we cannot change what he has already ordained. God's Word is the "SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER" and I do not care how many people out there want to change things around, it will not work in the end. Someday, non-believers or Church-goers who just go to put their time in, will have to face our Creator and tell Him why they did not accept His Only Son Yeshua (Jesus) as their personal Savior and Lord of their lives and personally, I would fear even thinking about that right now. God through His Son has left you a "Love Story" (The Bible) that will totally change your life and it is your responsibility to Study His Word and if will take the time to do this, you will be very surprized to see how your life and many others around you will change. You cannot offend me at all if that is what you think you may do because I am under God's Protection and people just do not offend me. I am under God's Word and He and Only One I look up to for He is My Father through His Sacrifice of His Only Son Jesus (Yeshua) and I will Praise Him Forever. I would suggest if you are not a Christian that you seek Him while He may be found because His Son is coming back soon and you will want to be in the First Resurrection of the dead. God Forbid if you are in the Second Resurrection because you will not have a Savior to protect you because you did not accept Him when you had a chance. There will be no more chances and because we do not know what will be tomorrow, I would make that choice now. I will be praying for all those on this site that someone out there will hear this message that the Creator is having me write you, so that you may have Jesus to protect you & will Save You until the end and then those of you who accept Jesus will have "ETERNAL LIFE." Amen & Amen

It would appear that the idea of Prop 8 was considered "unconstitutional", in spite of the facts , which are:
1) The very idea of marriage was not part of the intention of the Constitution.
2) The legislation of marrriage was left up the the individual states, rather than the Federal Government.
3) The Constitution provides for certain rights, and enumerates the criteria for same, not ever mentioning "sexual orientation", while mentioning "race" "creed" "religion" etc... no mention of "sexual orientation" at all.
So, it would seem that it is all a semantic manipulation game, used to overpower the citizens in their efforts to have a say in the way their society operates.
Shameful...
Thank you so very much for your reply, but at the same time I would like to suggest that if you want to reply, I would greatly appreciate it if you would use Scripture to back you up because God and only God is my Autority. He Created me and I only look up to His advice and I and my husband of 55 years continue to do so. If you would take the time to Study, not just read Scripture, but Study the Scripture, you may have a different view on this subject. Also, if you would Study our Forefathers quotes, you would be amazed at what they said. I have many of their quotes, but I will at this time only quote one of them from Joseph Story:. U.S. Surprme Court Justice; Father of American Jurisprudence, Placed on the Court by President James Madison "One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is part of the Common Law. There never has been a period in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundations. I verily believe Christianity necessary to the support of civil society." What is happening today is a disgrace to our Nation and Our Creator. If you are not a Christian, I would suggest that you find Him while he may be found, for after this life, there will NOT be a second chance. I will be praying for you and thank you again for your response.
