    These are important issues facing our society. The Supreme Court could be instrumentality in helping our country continue to move forward, or like the Dred Scott case set our society back for years to come

    No Court or Obama can make it right !!! It is un-natural period !!!! No one will ever change my mind that is the way I believe and forcing this will not make it ok.

    Thankfully you will never have to gay marry anyone you don't want to.

    Equal rights...not just for a few.

    They're for everyone!

    Listen, if a state approves it by vote I'm all for it. My issue is it's not equal, it's absurd to say the relationships are equal to a healthy straight couple who can reproduce by normal means. Not to mention the other obvious reason
  • BIGNEVERMO CAPISCE 2013/03/28 14:57:01
    what other obvious reasons?
    It actually is a federal issue as all states are supposed to recognize the other states marriages...thats what happened when individual states allowed interracial marriage and some did not..people were arrested in states where it was illegal, even though they had marriage license from their home state.
    so would you say that a marriage by people that cant procreate is equal to marriages where they can procreate...are you using procreation as a measuring stick as to whether or not a marriage is "equal"???

    The state of Cali was forced to vote on Same Sex marriage by the Homosexual community---they did and voted it down. Now the cry babies who didnt want Gov in their bedrooms invite the Supreme Court(Gov) into their bedrooms to try to overturn the will and vote of the people. Hypocrisy at its best
  • BIGNEVERMO CAPISCE 2013/03/28 16:41:16 (edited)
    who forced this amendment on the Cali ballot? It sure was not the gay community...
    "Proposition 8 was a California ballot proposition and a state constitutional amendment passed in the November 2008 state elections. The measure added a new provision, Section 7.5 of the Declaration of Rights, to the California Constitution, which provides that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."[2][3][4]"

    THAT IS NOT AN AMENDMENT PUSHED BY THE GAY COMMUNITY... so right there you are wrong...and the SCOTUS is part of the Constitution for a reason...to determine whether laws passed are constitutional...I guess you dont like that part of the Constitution...Prop 8 was passed by a majority over the rights of a minority...thats why the SCOTUS is ruling on it...like it or not...that is part and parcel of our Constitution!
    You have a picture of the Constitution on your profile wall...you seem hypocritical to me...you like parts of the Constitution...but not all of it...hmmmmmm.
  • CAPISCE Unusual... 2013/03/28 12:57:45
    Civil unions should be good enough---it's a legitimate compromise .
  • Unusual... CAPISCE 2013/03/28 14:10:16
    Then maybe we should compromise in other areas...some states can have slavery if they like, others not, women can vote in some states, and others not.

    If we're going to be unequal about some things, maybe we should go back in time 100 years.

  • Unusual... CAPISCE 2013/03/28 16:11:38
    Of course it is...
  • CAPISCE Unusual... 2013/03/29 22:38:23
    Glad you agree
  • donopolis 2013/03/27 11:20:06
    Possibly a landmark decision. Hoping to see our gay brothers and sisters afforded equal rights at last.

    To bad such a BIG change is going to happen with no one even talking about the real implications of it all -
    the point that is being lost (covered up by the MEDIA) in all of this is that Democracy is a joke , voting is a waste of time and is only allowed to make the little people feel like they have a say in how the government runs

    Here is the case : California voted to define marriage as between a man and a woman
    Here is the MEDIA “spin” : Polls by liberal groups now show that most people support gay marriage (rigged polls that is , designed to drive the opinion pre- selected by the MEDIA groups paying for the polls)
    here is the BIG problem : liberals say America has shifted its opinion but rather than risk being exposed as telling a lie they are going to the SCOTUS to over turn an election . Even if its true that Americans support (whatever is stated in the poll question ) democracy would have us place this issue on the ballot and VOTE on it ,,,,but that is not how liberals roll , they know they would never win they say screw democracy we can have high paid lawyers argue this to a group of old farts who don't even live in this country* who will give us what we want in spite of the will of the “people”

    Its ironic how Democrats never ever want to use democracy to further their AGENDA
  • BIGNEVERMO Franklin 2013/03/27 14:20:18 (edited)
    Well the problem with your post is that we are a Republic and we protect the rights of the few, where in a democracy the rights of the few can be overrun by the majority. That's why we have the system we have. The rights of a minority group should not be trampled because a majority want to impose their will. The SCOTUS will decide what is Constitutional...and whatever the decision...we will have to abide by it. That's how our system works...checks and balances!
