Judge strikes down Michigan's ban on gay marriage

Mar 21, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Star-Telegram.com

Michigan's ban on gay marriage, approved by voters in a landslide in 2004, was scratched from the state constitution by a federal judge who said the ballot box is no defense to a law that tramples the rights of same-sex couples.

How far is "to far?" Until we have complete discrimination because we don't like a certain group of people? Or maybe when discrimination is no longer legal? "One nation under god, indivisible with liberty and justice for ALL or liberty and justice for SOME?

When will all you bigots realize just because you got a slim majority of voters to vote for something doesn't mean it's constitutional?

Tell that to the millions of gay folks who are Christian, Jewish, etc ...

You might want to re-think your rants. This one just makes you look silly.

The marriage ban- "....fails to advance any conceivable legitimate state interest."

The state's expert witnesses were ".....entirely unbelievable and not worthy of serious consideration."

You do realize that you are ranting against love, marriage, monogamy, raising kids, and family life, right? Geesh!

Millions?
ROFLMAO!
9-11 millions here in the USA alone.

That's more than the total populations of a great many States, and far greater than the total military forces, active and reserve, of all the NATO countries ... COMBINED.

Think about it, shortpants. Think HARD.

But, again, what should I expect from a mentally incapacitated radical activist. Nothing but pure bull shit and hyperbole. Keep on keeping on, Sheeple!!
Michigan's ban passed with just 37% of the electorate voting in favor.

That's hardly a "landslide victory".

Even if 100% of the population voted for it, if it's unconstitutional it's unconstitutional.

It may only seem too far, because you have gone backwards.
