    This is why you don't put people's rights up for a vote.

    Nothing standing in the way of John McCain and Lindsey Graham now. :D

    How many more federal court rulings do we need before the remaining states can get it through their thick heads that they're in violation of the Constitution?

    These bans are dropping.
    But it won't be over till every citizen of the USA is treated with the dignity that they deserve, and be able to marry the person THEY love.:)
    Judging by some people who post on just this forum, a long time, some people just don't do progress.:p

    A US District Judge just struck down the ban in Wyoming!

    And SCOTUS denied Alaska's request for a stay, so let all the gay marriages begin!

    Awesome day today. :D

    Oh, drop it. You're borderline trolling now by continuing to repeat these nonsense views that originated from within your head with no basis on reality.

    I still wonder when, and if, the US Supreme Court is going to weigh in on this issue.

    The Court seems to have gone out of its way to avoid making a ruling. Granted there are solid legal reasons, or should I say rationalizations, for this. But until the Court, even the conservative-tilted Roberts Court, rules that Same-Sex marriages are a fundamental US civil right - then I think a lot of people are going to have lingering doubts. Society may have come a long way, but that doesn't mean there aren't still a lot of religious nutcases in this country.

    What truth? You still haven't answered the critical questions of "how" or "why".

    Borderline trolling? As opposed to what you were doing calling me out in a thread I wasn't even participating in?

    In SLC's defense it didn't originate within his head, his church propagated it.

    Disclaimer: he'll deny it, but it's no less true.

    He can't answer it, in fact no one who shares that view can. Which is one of the reasons these laws get struck down because they are incapable of providing any kind of logical reasoning to backup their illogical views.

    Which is akin to the blind leading the blind.

    Yeah, a part of me still feels a wee bit nervous but Kennedy's position is pretty clear.
