In the 1960s 'religion' got too frisky during the desegregation era and got its butt stomped for interfering with government

Lesson learned? NO

They're back for more. As we can plainly see; 'religion' just got its butt stomped AGAIN for interfering with government

When will 'religion' ever learn?

Utah will now demonstrate the VERY HARM which comes to same-sex couples by denying the existence of their marriages that the SCOTUS used as a reason to overturn DOMA.

The Gov & AG of Utah just GUARANTEED their loss before the 10th circuit!!

The overriding issue being that same-sex marriage should not be a political or ideological issue. There is no constitutional justification to forbid it, thus it shouldn't matter who stands up for which position.

The state recognizes freedom of religion, but religion must obey the law.

Larry, you've argued countless times that your mangina is sacred in your religion.

Now you go and make fun of yourself like that.

You homosexuals use your own practices as the worst insults--LOL!

<quoted text>Luckily for you, Obamacre mandates mental health coverage, you've still got two more years to make it through. Under Windsor, the govmint must recognize marriages based on their validity at the time and place they got hitched, the Utah marriages were valid at the time and place they got hitched. Until another Court rules otherwise, those licenses, binding contracts, not souvenirs.
The marriage question will be settled in very short order here. The next state ban to make it to the Supremes, kills the rest. There is no longer even a rational case which can even be made for them. We will all soon be able to enjoy the right to marry the legally qualified person of our choice, regardless of their sex and regardless of which state we live in. We have folk like you to thank for this, we probably couldn't have done it if you folk hadn't gone so bat sh*t crazy.
Good luck registering for healthcare.

Lar, when you decide to quit looking at your mangina in the mirror, let us know.

You homosexuals can't use your own practices as the worst insult possible if you don't want things like the US Supreme Court taking Utah's case to keep happening.

LOL. No one is dissing gay folks, they are only insulting creatures like you, who pretend to hate gay folks, while haunting gay forums, constantly fantasizing about gay MEN having sex, and demanding constant attention from gay people.

You have to admit that's pretty sad, for someone who claims to be straight.

Homosexual marriage, as I've said from day one, is the most violent attack on religion in American history, and everyone now knows it after Phil made a monkey out of you and your anti-defamation league in its first case.

You're right to be worried about Utah and the Supreme Court.

Phil kicked off a glorious future for people like me who've been right all along about you.

How can that be, since NO RELIGION is required to marry any gay couples, or will ever be? And, remember, many many churches DO marry gay couples, and have for ages. Are you saying that their religious freedoms are worthless? Which religion should be the national belief? Catholicism? Baptist? Should we all be Jewish by law, or Hindu? How about Muslim?

No one should ever demand that a particular religious belief be used to control others that are not part of that religion.

I suspect you would fight to the death if Sharia law were to become the established law in the US, and rightly so. But trying to force your particular religious interpretations on others is no better.

Wouldn't it make more sense to leave it to God, and trust that He has is handled? Gay folks are His children, too. And He blesses our lives, our spouses, and our families as he does yours.

Marriage is not an attack, it's a blessing. Don't try to turn it into something ugly, just because people you don't understand or like value it too.

Are you getting paid by the word?

You're scared about Utah and don't want to talk about what your anti-defamation league tried to do in its first case.

Phil was about religion. And you got your beaver-faced arse handed to you.
