An interesting twist on the appeals process and an eventual SCOTUS ruling:

If Justice Ginsburg decides to retire this year or next, the GOPasuars will likely filibuster her replacement until after the 2016 election. That would leave the court split 4-4.

While an evenly split SCOTUS ruling leaves the lower appeals court ruling in tact, it would prevent any national ruling.

I bring this up because the GOPasaurs will do ANYTHING they can to prevent nationwide marriage equality as long as possible.

that would not play well with them in the 16 election...but the GOP has a long history of shooting themselves in the balls.

I thought about that, but I don't think the GOPasuars think that far ahead.

I've read the book dear, all you have is your prayer, the Bible, nowhere near as anti-gay as some self-professed Christians make it out to be. Sorry.

American Muslims, for the most part anyways, not noted for their animus to our community, most are probably more worried about being attacked by good Christians than evil homosexuals.

Buttercup, you may not have noticed, but in this country, there's like 3000 Christians for every last Muslim in America. By the way, anti-gay sentiment may be the predominant attitude in Islam, it ain't the only one. I've been to a number of Islamic countries over the years and you run into incredibly diverse attitudes.

We Christians just pray for your salvation.
Buttercup, if that were all you were doing with your spare time, I'd have no problem with you whatsoever, but you don't, you find the time to prattle on endlessly and mindlessly in the name of God. May I suggest, keeping your fingers of that thing you're playing with and get them back to being clenched humbly in prayer?

We don't hate you dear, just your sins. Bearing false witness, falsely prophesying in the name of God, hubris, being unrighteous in your judgment and doing unto others what you would whine like a stuck hog if done unto you, to name a few. Those we hate, you we feel sorry for.

Rick,
You sound a little perverted, let's face it. Why are you so obsessed with "rumps"?

Let's have some decency here.

Let us also pray for the child victim who was raped and murdered by the homosexuals in Atlanta.(which no gay group spoke out about)

Let us also pray for you, you need it, urgently. I'm not a believer and even I can see it. The only perverse interest in rumps here is your own. There were more than 100 other words in that post and you recognized only the one. What does that say about you?

There is no rational argument against gay marriage. This is a simple matter of equal protection.
A man can marry a woman, so a woman should also be able to.
A woman can marry a man, so a man should also be able to.

Fundies just need to keep their Bronze Age superstitions to themselves.
Don't like the idea of gay marriage? Don't marry someone of the same sex.

Try and latch onto the pain of being used as target practice by so many John's. The bigoted hatred that you show towards Christianity comes from years of self immolation in dark matters. Perhaps if you crawl towards the light, you'll find some comfort. If not, I'll see you next Friday evening. LOL.
So, quit dodging. The buy bull says people who work on Friday evenings should be tortured to death. Do you think they should be? Or do you think you know better than god?

That way your tired, old ass isn't walking the streets after sundown. You never know when some thousand year old Rabbi might snatch you up and apply some good,old fashioned torture to you.
So, quit dodging. I'm not asking if you are worried. The buy bull says people who work on Friday evenings should be tortured to death. Do you think they should be? Or do you think you know better than god? I know you won't answer. Either answer "Yes" or "No" makes you look stupid, because you are.
