    Well, YEEHAH and BOY HOWDY ... the 14th Amendment trumps unreasonable prejudice once again.

    I can hear Freddy Mercury and Queen chanting "another one bites the dust."

    Always comforting to know that no matter how ridiculous politicians can be, the Courts still seem to be actually keeping the laws in line. Albeit at a slightly lethargic rate.

    @CanadianIndy US District Judge Orlando Garcia was appointed by Bill Clinton. How do you think a partisan republican judge like Thomas or Scalia would have ruled?

    As opposed to the partisan judge Orlando Garcia? Thomas or Scalia likely would have ruled in favor of the Constitutional principle of state's rights.

    Oh man, I get happy every time Iread one of these "gay marriage ban struck down" articles. It reminds me that no matter how much ignorance is out there, logic and common sense will almost always prevail eventually.

    @Now_What A win for "freedom" would be getting rid of the Patriot Act and NDAA 12. It would be reigning in the NSA, TSA and Homeland Defense. And it would mean returning our personal liberties and freedoms back to what they used to be.

    @Now_What PN said it right, it was a win for equality. It didn't have much to do with "freedom".
    The things I mentioned on the other hand, do.

    But since being gay is clearly a choice, the more accepted gay marriage becomes we might get tricked into getting gay married...

    I think "gay married" is my new favorite word...

    @thhutton
    When did you "choose" to be hetero?.... not when did youfirst start noticing the opposite sex and get a woodiie... but when did you sit dwon, look at the facts, weight the pros and cons, and then come to a concious decision that from that point on you would be only attracted to the opposite sex?
    Sexual orientatin has nevre EVER been a choice. You never chose who you are attracted to neither did they;

    It's amazing that we still have so-called educated Americans claiming that sexual preference is a "choice". This must be another consequence of 24/7/365 Hate Radio/FOX News programming, or a life spent confined behind the bars of a "pray-the-gay-away" Fundamentalist backwoods cult.

    Crocodile tears. There are more gay right wingers in Texas than you can shake your booty at. How do you think chaps became a gay man's favorite article of clothing?

    @Ryunkin I thought it was because they don't have a seat in them and that allows for easier access for ya'll to do what you do.

    When are Republicans and conservatives going to realize that they are on the wrong side of history on this one?

    I'd rather be correct, than on the "right" side of engaging in the active destruction of the United States.

    I am not gay so I don't really care much about banning gay marriage or not bc I think everyone should have the right to marry who they want as long as they are of age and human descent.

    This is just such great news. To all of the haters, don;t you realize that your "GOD" is allowing this? That is of course, if you don't have faith that he can change anything..........

    Good. Glad this judge did it right. Should be heard by SCOTUS ASAP and this time they should rule that gay marriage is the law of the land. Hope for at least 7-2 ruling. Holdouts, if any, will be because of states rights issues.

    @Thegrif No, states do not have ANY right to codify discrimination into law. Nothing in the U.S. Constitution gives them that power.
  • #190

    @Pagan_priest so whats your point? I said states should have the right and IMO THEY ABSOLUTELY SHOULD!
    Texas as a whole don't want gays to marry, I think that is something to be handled at state level, and that the Fed should stay out of state business.

    As for the Constitution and the lack of power, well, " USA Today (2/16/88) "The Constitution of the United States says nothing about separation of
    church and state. That phrase does appear in the Soviet Constitution though.

    America doesn't use the Constitution anymore.
  • #191

    While the Constitution does not use the specific words "separation of church and state", they were always a part of the consideration for that amendment. That was the intent.

    And no, no state should ever be allowed to codify discrimination into its laws. That would be just as evil as the Soviet Union ever was.

    Right on. Adults should be free to choose their spouse. The government needs to keep its nose out of the marriage business either way.

    The dam is breaking liberals. Right before your eyes. If you would only stop to look for a second you would realize that allowing bigoted Christian bakers and photographers to hurt their own business by refusing to participate in a same-sex wedding isn't a big deal. While they are stewing in their conflict the rest of us, gays included, will go somewhere else.

    You've won. In two generations the debate around homosexuality has gone from, homosexuals fighting for the right to exist, to, having a chance to say to the last few holdouts, "Whatever, you don't matter" while the rest of us give you cheers for acting the grownup.

    @Fishbone345 -- I'm doin fine. Enjoying some time off. I've been spending the last couple of days making the moderators nervous. I've been a cur more than a mutt. ;-)

    Hope all is well with you too.

    @Bobolinsky Other than Team USA laying an egg in hockey, everything is well. The NHL season started up again so good times...
    Glad to see you around occasionally.

    @Fishbone345 -- Yeah the men were a disappointment. The women made a good run at it. So. Close. Wasn't it less than two minutes left with a 2 goal lead? heartbreaking. Oh well, at least it was Canada that got the gold and not Russia.

    I watched curling more than anything else. I actually took the time to learn all the rules and I can understand why Canada loves their curlers. I'd love to try it sometime. America really laid an egg in curling. Neither team made it out of the round robin.

    I just came up with a GENIUS idea that will change every Republicans mind on gay marriage and have them clammoring at the polls to vote FOR it, and it's a lot more simple then anyone ever thought....

    all you have to do, is tell them Obama is against it.
