Just let them get married so we can be done with this as a topic in the country.

You wouldn't be amazed?

(We also missed one Reason, marriage is for procreation so impotent people are issued viagra at the end of the ceremony)

The way we've handled gay rights in this country really puts the "ass" in national embarassment. Let's hope the Supreme Court isn't a bunch of dinguses on this and does the right thing.

Yeah, it really is embarrassing to see how poorly they're being treated. You'd think we would have learned our lesson after treating women and black people like crap years ago but I guess we'll always need someone to discriminate against.
I wonder who will be next?

Jesus doesn't hate same-sex partners...people do...how could Jesus hate something he created?

This shouldn't even be a federal issue. They have no Constitutional authority to legislate on issues like this. States are the only entities that have the authority to make laws about these kinds of issues, and it would be better for everybody anyway. Each state could make their own decisions, and each state could have it their own way.

The constitution is in place because of these types of things. Thank god. If not we'd probably still be segregated.

And women wouldn't be able to vote in the south.

The end of segregation had little to do with the Constitution, as far as the Constitutional process actually works. The South was basically told that they would not be let back into the union (and left in their pathetic Reconstruction state) unless they ratified the Civil War Amendments. If the Constitutional process actually took it's typical path, things might have been different.

But that's another story entirely. The point here is that the Federal Government does not have any Constitutional authority to legislate on this. Amendments can be passed through the proper channels, but until an Amendment is passed, the Federal Government has no place in this issue.

Are you telling me that the federal government wasn't involved in civil rights? That was my point.

Nightmare says:
I was just making the point that the Civil Rights Amendments were passed by the South under duress, so it probably would have taken a lot longer for such Amendments to be passed under typical Constitutional process (and they might have never happened as everybody started getting along with each other naturally; they wouldn't have been needed).

I don't think it should even be a state issue. It's a human rights issue and every adult deserves the right to marry any consenting adult they choose.

This shouldn't even be an issue period...let them get married...they don't mess with the tools in your tool shed, so don't mess with the clothes in their closet. We have so many more legitimate issue to worry about, that spending time on this is just crazy and completely pointless. It's hard to believe that in 2012 we still have stupid ignorant people trying to force their beliefs on others...live and let live people.

Exactly. People who don't want gays to marry shouldn't even have a say in this in the first place. It's not their business.

Gay marriage is good for the economy.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 13, 2012 12:36:29 PM PST
Amen to that...I couldn't have said it any better my friend. It's hard for me to believe that these people have nothing else going on in their lives that is worth their time and attention other than whether gays should marry...sad lives and/or stupid people.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 13, 2012 12:37:33 PM PST
So...what you're saying is...if we don't let them marry then the terrorists win?

yes

I like it!

Nightmare says:
Whether or not any of us think it should be a state or federal issue, according to the Constitution it is a state issue. But marriage of any kind has no place in the laws of the federal government.

Well, too late - we break our own rules all the time.

Quite clearly, consistently, and frequently.

I'm so glad you're not right, I love my federal tax breaks for being married!

Nightmare says:
Well, according to the Constitution I'm right. Obviously the Federal Government does plenty of things that are not Constitutional, but the point still stands that marriage does not fall under the powers of the federal government.
