Why the Supreme Court may not say ‘I do’ to gay marriage

There are 567 comments on the news.yahoo.com story from Jun 18, 2013, titled Why the Supreme Court may not say ‘I do’ to gay marriage. In it, news.yahoo.com reports that:

With the Supreme Court expected to issue major rulings on same-sex marriage any day now, ABC News court watcher Terry Moran tells Top Line that the court will likely avoid making a monumental ruling on the issue.

Moran says the justices “don’t want to be the judges of America when it comes to this issue” and predicts that they will find a way to defer to the states in the two cases dealing with same-sex marriage.

“They see this roiling democratic debate that's happening state-by-state, and the betting at the Supreme Court is that they'll find a way to decide this issue by getting themselves out of it,” Moran says. “They won't declare gay marriage legal all over the country or illegal. They'll say, 'Let the states handle it.'"

You poor, deluded idiot, congratulations to the decent and honest gays who will benefit.(That doesn't include you, of course, because you are neither decent nor honest. But I digress.)

You don't understand that I will make money from this decision! The decision actually makes no real difference in my life. I still do not support same sex marriage. Yes, it is now sanctioned. Yes, I still prefer civil unions or domestic partnerships.(I'm consistent.) I have my integrity and you're still stupid, dishonest and a hate consumed boob.

So really, not all that much has changed for me. But do enjoy your delusion of adequacy if that's all you have to cling to.

Which is it, fool? Does the decision make no real difference, or do you profit from it (which would be a difference)?

You don't look terribly intelligent when you make posts like this one.

Due to the numbers of people involved in both types of unions, I tend to agree with that statement. However, are you talking world-wide, or just the U.S., or what. I have no idea how many countries have polygamous marriage, or how many people are involved, but I would sure like to see the stats you have to back up your argument. And I am sure you have those stats.....right?

What I look to you is irrelevant because I consider you irrelevant.

To clarify since apparently you aren't "terribly intelligent" when you ask inane questions like this, the decision does not make any real/significant difference in that I am not gay. I wasn't looking for special consideration. True, I believe my country's best days are behind us (and not just because of this decision), but I figure I'll be gone before its demise into a second rate power.

And yes, I will make money due to a business situation. You are powerless to do anything about it.

Thank you for your honesty.

Earlier I called you "King of the Topix Trolls" and you objected. I admit may have gone a little bit overboard with the hyperbole in assigning you such a lofty title. But you are, by your own admission, nothing but a troll. There's nothing left to be said on my part.

Yet, not so irrelevant as to forgo a response. That's telling.

If you think that we are in decline because we are following our constitution, then you are insane.

I could agree that we are in decline when we don't follow our principles regarding the rule of law in dealing with terrorists, we shirk transparency in bringing our foes to justice, and we engage in military operations in lands that we are not at war with using unmanned drones, but not by affording equal protection of the laws for same sex couples to marry.

Get a grip.

I wouldn't do anything to prevent it in the first place, and I have never indicated that I would.

I would, once again, point out your lie that same sex marriage has no effect upon you if it is a windfall for you. Only an idiot would claim to the contrary.

You want to cherry pick my words, that's fine. Yesterday's decision is a very MINOR factor in the decline of the US.

And since you have not the slightest interest in any rational discussion and only want to play word games, I'll end this post here.

Do you have a link to this research? I find it interesting that you base one's voting habits strictly on if they are conservative, then they vote along some religious beliefs.
I didn't say what you said in the above. That is what you twisted of what I said to mean.

I said conservative voters in prop 8 voted from a religious perspective.
I said conservative and non-conservative voters in prop 8 that voted for it voted from a religious perspective.
You have disagreed on both counts and you show no proof of your claim.
When you show your proof that conservative and non-conservative voters that voted for prop 8 had no religious ties, I'll show you facts by research studies that they had religious ties and those religious ties influenced them to vote against same sex marriage.

You do realize, do you not, that any law enacted from a "religious perspective" violates the free exercise of all other religions, right?

Preventing legislation respecting an establishment of religion is what specifically protects us from things like Sharia Law from being enacted. Do you really mean to argue for the weakening of free exercise protections? That would not be terribly bright, nor would it be constitutional.

You are neither clever nor intelligent. You have allowed your sheer bigotry to color an semblance of either since the moment this decision came down.

You should be ashamed of your behavior of e past two days.

On second thought, don't bother.
