<quoted text>Marriage is legal everywhere, it's just some States have chosen to ignore the Constitutional Rights of Due Process and Equality, the Courts are addressing those anti American laws adopted by States that is coming before them now.

This is but another example of States abusing the individual civil rights of Citizens and why there is no such thing as State's Rights. At any opportunity they get States will abridge individual liberties of United States Citizens.
If it was a constitutional right pookie, it would be expounded on in the constitution. You surly know you can't change nature and a definition just by buying some Obama appointed judges.

So, you're admitting you are unfamiliar with the Bill of Rights and the U.S Constitution.
Good let the lesson begin.

For those Patriots and defenders of Freedom and Individual Liberty who can read without pictures, the guarantee is "expounded on the Constitution", twice in the 5th and 14th Amendments to drive that principle home.

The Constitution Guarantees each citizen due process and equality which is taken from the 5th and14th Amendment, established a century before Obama and, Justice Earl Warren opinioned Marriage as a Civil Right in the Loving vs Virginia Supreme Court Case.

5th Amendment "No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;"

14th Amendment "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws"

Your arguments have no basis in facts. You'd have to believe not all citizens deserves the protection of the U.S Constitution.

As soon as someone starts calling their opponent by a silly name, they are conceding defeat. Are you really that insecure, that you have to resort to condescending pet names to make yourself feel superior?

You seem a bit confused. Equal protection under the law hasn't been available to gay citizens since 1779. All of the laws created specifically to disenfranchise them are a testament to that.

We are only now gaining access to some of the same fundamental rights everyone else has always had.

And it's about time.
