It's really simple. Once gay judges come into power, they obviously will be biased towards providing for their cause. It is not even about what is constitutional or what democracy deserves.

It is all about survival and self interest on the part of these gay judges. They're worse than Democrats and Republicans.

The reason that the vote is overruled is because the court protects minorities from the tyrrany of the majority. They have done that since the 1965 voting rights act. Thank god!

No, we base our views on the simple and verifiable facts.
No straight person or their marriage will ever be harmed by the marriages of gay folks. Banning legal recognition of gay folk's marriages HARMS them.
Simple.
Factual.
There is no rational logical reason behind harming gay people and their families by denying them the ability to legally marry.
You can't argue the facts, so you project your own ideas and feelings on the other side, hoping to distract readers from your lack of any sensible argument.
Silly stuff.
I think the problem we need to look at is why are the marriages of those that do not support gay marriage so feeble

There are 18,000 legal gay marriages in California right now, my marriage was not harmed in any way at all, nor were the marriages of my children, or friends.

Yet these people that are so opposed to same sex marriage claim it is doing irreparable harm to marriage. Why are their marriages so feeble, why are the opponents of same sex marriage in relationships that are so easily damaged?

That is what they need to look into, themselves, and not worry about what other consenting adults are doing.

Yes! And you must do the same with regards to polygamy and incest marriage. See? Easy!

Hetorsexual marriage could bring the horror of forced prison marriages to people in institutions. Keep ALL marriage illegal if you think prison rape is wrong.

I think rape is wrong, and rapists in or out of prison should be castrated.

waddabout them senators and congressers who is aginst everything and have a special fix-yer-wagon itch for womens? If they practice what they preach and have been married for X years then they should have X children, with an average of one per year as per bible, or by simple math and time out, right? So how come they got an average of minus 13.7 per year ? They must be practicing one of them songs they dont want anybody else to sing, right? Now if they is doing the sandusky with each other in the basement of the capitol then we outta have them on camera, right? So's we can choose by they real behavior, right, as trooly UPstanding leeders, right?

I think he is comparing two examples of the government social engineering by fiat.

Sometimes the results maybe worth it but still he has a valid point.

So do I

You need to look at the post I was responding to, I was being sarcastic, if rape is a reason to not allow consenting adults to marry, then it applies both ways.
