I want to see the Gay Marriage Case go to the Supreme Court. With two lesbians on the bench appointed by Obama, it wont go too far.

Right, we have judge position staffed by perverts. I do suspect they'll go anti-Christ everytime.

This is what will happen: the 9th Circuit will overrule Vaughn Walker's decision because it is not possible that a panel of judges, liberal though they might be, will be as stupid, irrational, biased and disconnected from reality as Walker has shown himself to be. The US Supreme Court will let the appeal court's ruling stand and refuse to hear the case. That's what will happen.

Never have I seen a worse reasoned judicial decision. Even someone not trained in the law and using simple common sense can see the glaring fallacies of Walker's conclusions.

What I find amazing are the heterosexuals who are opposed to homosexuals having the right to marry claiming that it is pushing the homosexual lifestyle onto heterosexuals, while in turn the heterosexuals are pushing their lifestyle onto the homosexuals.

I heard Neal Bortz (sp?) once on the radio say something totally asinine. He claimed that the homosexual has the same rights as a heterosexual when it comes to being married. They can marry anybody they wish, as long as it is a woman.Or in the case of a woman, a man. The same as any heterosexual. The only problem with this logic is that a homosexual male does not want to marry a woman, they are not of that persuasion. So why force them to do something that is against their nature? or worse yet a loveless marriage?

The simplest thing I heard about homosexual marriage was on a bumper sticker, which read " If you are against same sex marriage....don't have one."

Look, people should have the freedom to enter contractual obligations and ruin their lives with whomever they please. If they wanted to marry a fucking light post, who is it hurting? Is gay marriage making a mockery of the sanctity of marriage? Sure. However, we straights took care of divorcing 'sacred' from 'marriage' these last 40 years. There is nothing left. I love how these conservetard icons like Reagan, Limbaugh, McCain, Murdoch, Rove, etc. are all divorcees yet aren't taken to task for their role in destroying marriage! Instead of worrying about a small handful of perverts in San Francisco and Hollywood, why don't they worry about the biggest killer of the sanctity of marriage right here in front of us?

Oh yeah, the errors are right there on the page in black and white. So obvious.

Never mind that Walker's conclusions are based on facts; whereas the supporters position was conjucture and belief.

The question before the court was simple: Did Prop. 8 violate the Constitution?
