There are a lot of powerful and unstoppable ideas that are now just footnotes in the history books.

Oh let's see: By claiming they are "deviant" or "unnatural" or "mentally ill" or "pedophiles" despite the research of every respected medical and mental-health organization on the planet finding otherwise, and supporting legislation meant to keep the gay community as second-class citizens.

And that's just a start.

Especially with bought off liberal judges. When the supreme court gets the cases, they will find they violated the tenth and fourteenth amendments.

Of course, many of those "liberal judges" were Republican appointees. Funny how that works. You don't have to be a liberal to understand the Constitution (although it seems to help).

Like ending slavery? Allowing women to vote? Supporting the right to marry outside of one's race? Ending forced segregation?

Can you point to those "lots" of cases were civil rights movements went reversed course?

Those groups of people weren't sexual deviants (as a whole). Homosexuals on the other hand. Big difference.

Civil rights are the broad range of privileges and rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and subsequent amendments and laws which are fundamental to all American citizens.

Gays and lesbians are gaining civil rights quickly, and the bigots know it. All they can do is come to this forum and vent their mounting frustration and panic about it by posting insults and hateful comments. It's fun watching them cry like little girls.LMAO!

Impeach all these judges, who have ripped the rights from people to protect their communities from known and provable predators and the diseased. Societies always identify threats to the well being of society. These rights are much more important than the constantly changing "rights" of the sexually depraved, criminally minded, drug and disease spreading homosexual community.
