California votes two times regarding this matter and yet it is overturned. Do votes count, why vote? It is no different if the situation was reversed the other way. Again why vote?

One idiotic, angry gay twirled lie after another.
The highest purpose of marriage is a healthy safe place to raise biological children. The primary rights and privileges were originally established for mothers and children. Not for two grown men like you and your partner to use and abuse. Man up!
Another statement only a gay would make. Any sane, compassionate person knows children prefer mom and dad.
The rest is too stupid to waste time with.
Sure they do, preacher man. Esp if the mother's a junkie ho and the father's a child molester.

Would Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. have supported the LGBTQ -rights movement?
Today’s prominent gay rights activists compare the marriage equality struggle with the American civil rights racial equality movement of the mid-twentieth century. But would the most revered American icon of the early civil rights movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. have supported a massive push to redefine marriage?
While, it’s impossible to know for sure what side of the fence Martin Luther King would have been on, as an ordained Christian Baptist minister with a doctorate in theology, and former president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, it stands to reason that King would have championed the word of God.
The Judeo-Christian beliefs and principles that inspired and spurred Martin Luther King, Jr. to heroic feats, valor, and selfless sacrifice are now looked upon with derision, and disdain by the very same people who paradoxically honor him on the third Monday of January, and in significant places such as the monumental memorial in Washington, D.C.
In 1964, Martin Luther King, Jr. was asked in “Face the Nation,” whether his organization had ties to communist elements. His response was as follows,“communism is based on an ethical relativism and a metaphysical materialism...that I could never accept." (see link below)
King’s uncompromising rejection of “ethical relativism” provides compelling reason to believe he would not have supported a form of marriage that violates God’s will. Now whether King would have taken an active stance against non-traditional marriage is another question.
If King would have actively opposed it, he most likely would have urged his Christian brethren to promote morality, spiritual truth, and religious freedom through courageous and peaceful protest.
Had this beloved American hero lived to see his dream realized, he would have been grateful to God for the significant strides we- as a nation- have made to end racial bigotry, yet appalled by the intense religious bigotry that plagues our country.

Only two negative sets of smilies in 5 minutes?

You limp wristers are so weak. I'm beginning to think that the SCROTUS gave you the "Sympathy for Granpa" style vote, or it's how they waited until you're old and frail before finally giving you that Oscar.

That's true. And if you think about it, some of them bring the institution of marriage more into disrepute than any gay couple.
