    We've been moving this way for a long time. It's only a matter of time now. As Dr. King said, "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice"

    I would certainly hope so, and with the way demographics are flowing I would say it is. Also, when you consider that many of the 'anti's' have been posting the same stupid crap time and time again (Sodom and Gomorrah, those famous Leviticus quotes), I can't help but wonder: how could it not?

    I'm gay and will never vote for a conservative because of it. They don't like me for being gay, and I take it very emotionally and personally.

    There's some good stuff in the bible, but don't go citing some of Leviticus unless you're willing to cite all of Leviticus.

    What do you think? Yes, of course the Constitution doesn't matter any more to America. I'm just here voicing my objection. I'm not going to tell you people what the Soviet union did to people like homosexuals when they were no longer useful in bringing down a country. Feel like calling me a hater, please view my polls. Btw, you're engaging in an unhealthy lifestyle... That's all.

    Living in a country where same sex marriage is legal, I seriously don't get what you're all so afraid of. Canada's divorce rate is the same as ever. No frogs have fallen from the sky.
    But there are more jobs in the wedding industry and hopefully less teenagers are hanging themselves in the basement.
    Gay marriage changes NOTHING. Churches and religious folk aren't forced to acknowledge it. You can go on not allowing gays to wed in the mega church. It's a civil union that allows folks to get life insurance, visitation rights, tax benefits, etc.

    Gay people also like the fact that they can love eachother openly.

    I can't understand that a nation like yours - so obsessed with freedom - is so afraid to let anyone be free. You truly do appear to the rest of the world as the most hateful nation on earth.

    The Constitution makes no effort to define marriage, presumably leaving any such regulation to the states. It does however, state this:

    “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    What we're seeing now is the due process of law to overturn bans on gay marriage to provide privileges and immunities gay people should've constitutionally had in the first place.

    TL;DR version: Just because something makes you uncomfortable doesn't make it unconstitutional.

    As a gay-sympathizer, I appreciate your concession. Don't hang your head. You bigots had a good run in this country.

    Not when you let the people vote and not the judges making laws which they aren't suppose to.
  • Grandbr... Hula gi... 2012/11/09 06:41:09
    So how do you explain 2 states legalizing it through a vote, and one state where they voted to NOT legally prohibit same sex marriage?
  • elijahin24 Hula gi... 2012/11/13 02:06:25
    The people voted in Maine and Maryland. Thanks.

    Gay marriage rights are am ignorant microcosm of the true rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
  • elijahin24 BobStrauss 2012/11/13 02:07:25
    I don't recall reading anything in our federal documents about life, liberty and the right to DENY happiness to others.
  • strawberry 2012/11/09 02:54:48
    Definitely yes. Put aside backward moral issues, gay same sex marriages, having one partner makes far more sense then gay bars, bath houses, multiple gay partners risking spreading HIV. Did many U.S. states finally wake up to this logical factor.

    It's unequal when some gay couples can't marry in their state of residence but some can in other states.

    Marriage is not a right? Wow that would shock all those already married. I guess you don't have the right to marry the woman you love then.
  • Chris -... nat75 2012/11/09 19:46:09
  • nat75 Chris -... 2012/11/09 20:48:07
    Part of liberty is the right to marry who you want to. Or what do u think it is? You are saying adults don't have the right to get married? Not just me you would shock lol. Then again you don't decide if people have the right to do anything lol
