You Nazi pukes create these laws and then the courts get rid of them because they are UNCONSTITUTIONAL..

You have shown that you hate the USA and its Constitution...WHY NOT MOVE WHERE YOU WOULD FIT IN BETTER...LIKE IRAN OR RUSSIA.

It's people like you that are the sole aberration of justice , the law and the mental health and well-being of children ; they don't need more bigotry and twisted reasoning making way into their easily influenced , yet unformed lives . Considering the now discredited tenets of what Pseudo-Christians like to think of as " religion " they'd be very lucky indeed if they grew up to be atheists ; maybe only then would they understand the true meaning of humanity and love of your neighbor and realize how shamefully so many of their parents have failed them .

Good luck with that!

Even your own home bigoted state is going to be forced to recognize our marriages!!!

And the ruling came from a Mitch McConnell approved George Bush appointed conservative judge!!!

HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!

This is just another in a string of rulings that say pretty much the same thing--there's simply no way to support carving out a group of citizens and denying them equal protection under the law.

It's such a simple concept. So simple, in fact, that only the *truly* simple-minded don't get it.

And we see evidence of that every day, right here on Topix.

Just because a person doesn't agree with gay marriage does not mean they hate gay people. Really, it's time to grab another line.
God never promised His followers that we would be loved by all if we were to uphold His Word.
If everyone was what you are, then what would happen to the human race? It would be wiped out. How natural does that sound? How fair is that? So much for equality at that point, huh?
It isn't about hate.
And by the way, bigotry isn't a word that's just reserved for people against gay marriage.
I see a lot of bigots hating Christians. Don't tell one of Christs followers that they need to hide what's in their hearts, just so you can reveal what's in yours. That's hypocritical.
Just calling it as it is.

Really, it's time to grab another line........this one is IRRELEVANT because it is a FALSE analogy and it implies that Gays and Lesbians are unable to procreate, which we AREN'T!!!

What line would you suggest? If I felt that another person deserved lesser civil rights and lesser legal protections than I enjoy, all because of some physiological characteristic they have, then what would be a good way to describe my attitude?

What does it mean to "not agree with gay marriage"? Does it mean you don't agree that it exists? That's what it means for some people, it means that they believe that it is not realistically valid, despite being legally recognized, because they feel there is a "higher authority" than the law which actually presides over the matter.

Or, does it mean that you don't feel that a same-sex marriage is for you? That would be fine, I'm sure no one is forcing you to have one.

Most likely, what you mean is that you don't think same-sex marriage should be recognized for ANYONE. Of course, pretty much the only people who would SEEK a same-sex marriage would be gay people, so the question sort of becomes: what feelings DO you have regarding gay people which lead you to feel that they should have no legal recourse for protecting their loved ones, or for having their familial bonds legally recognized.

God needs to do a better job explaining why his Word says that gay people should be put to DEATH. This declaration has haunted gay people for centuries, thanks a lot God. You can uphold whatever religious doctrine you like for your own life, but there's a problem when you insist that some citizens must waive their legal equality and their own human dignity just so that you can feel more religious.

It isn't about hate.
Everyone IS what we are: human beings. And some humans are gay. Not ALL humans are gay, and no one is demanding that all humans be gay. But how "fair" and "equal" is it for you to IGNORE this fact about humanity, and say that a minority doesn't get the rights it deserves just because it is not the majority?

I think we can BOTH reveal what's in our hearts, WITHOUT legally hobbling someone from choosing the spouse that suits them best, and there will still be room in the world for both of us.

As you say, bigotry isn't a word that's just reserved for people against gay marriage. Sometimes it describes people against gays serving openly in the military, or against gays adopting and raising children, or against gays being school teachers, or against gays donating blood, or against gays publicly displaying affection for their loved ones, or against gay students forming school clubs, or against gays being depicted positively in the media... or on and on and on.

If you don't hate gay people, but only want us to have a lesser legal status in the world, there's a reason you've been lumped in with people who are against all those other things. You have decided that gay people, for whatever reason, are undeserving of a legal right (and an almost universal human practice) that you yourself freely enjoy. You need to CLOSELY examine why that is.
