    Are you kidding me, it's a great week for the haters of every other group of people but the Gays. Gays get constant mention, their plights of FORCING their marriage laws down the throats of the people by activist liberal judges. Why do no other groups of people get their wishes & agendas put on the face of this site every single day?

    I'm glad I'm around to see this. It's nice to be a part of History. In 50 years kids are going to be learning about the equal rights movement, it makes me sad that so many people are going to be on the wrong side of history.... again.

    @Ironicguy At least you get to see this part of it. Tell the truth.... did you think you would live long enough to see a black guy get elected President? I didn't.

    Back in the 60's, I'll bet the Civil rights struggle of African-Americans made headlines daily, too. This is history in the making. Perhaps you should go to sleep for 10 years. Maybe a good decade's sleep will do you some good; you'll wake up refreshed, rested and less grumpy! Or not!

    I can picture the churches here in Kentucky this weekend...... we'll have fire and brimstone messages ringing through the "hollers"! And here I thought we'd never get alcohol sales, it's always best to keep up with the times we live in! The Christian bully is put in his place again, and hopefully his GOD is smiling.

    Hey and medical Marijuana just passed 9 to 5 in a subcommittee and is going to the full house. Church should be fun this Sunday for real.

    It may be the churches are losing influence over gay rights.

    "Among Americans who left their childhood religion and are now religiously unaffiliated, about one-quarter say negative teachings about or treatment of gay and lesbian people was a somewhat important (14%) or very important (10%) factor in their decision to disaffiliate. Among Millennials who no longer identify with their childhood religion, nearly one-third say that negative teachings about, or treatment of, gay and lesbian people was either a somewhat important (17%) or very important (14%) factor in their disaffiliation from religion."

    The Equal Protection Claus is part of the U.S. Constitution. Obviously, this applies throughout all 50 states.

    I actually knew that. Sometimes the touch screen doesn't like to cooperate. Spellchecker also assumes things if I don't catch it! Do you suppose there is such a thing as too much technology?

    @RedFloppyShoes all laws, no matter who votes on them have to pass the constitution. this avoids things like that b.s.'prop 8' in california a while back. the majority cannot dictate the rights of any minority. there's a term for that, you know... it's called 'the tyrany of the majority'

    A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.
    Thomas Jefferson

    All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
    Thomas Jefferson

    In Republics, the great danger is, that the majority may not sufficiently respect the rights of the minority.

    @Yobyag that's what i said.'what agenda?'

    you know, i asked our friend alex if there was a 'gay agenda'(he's gay, you know, so i figured that he'd know something about it) and he sort of blushed and opened his briefcase to show us his 'gay agenda'. as a matter of fact, it was probably one of the gayest things i've ever seen... the cover was pink, and all over the front were pictures of 'my little pony'... inside the first page said:
    thursday/may, 8 : leave work early to take mom shopping for her birthday, and then to where ever she'd like to eat dinner.

    'friday/may, 9 take birthday presents to trinity/pack for beach camping trip with gus and the kids.

    i want to tell you that trinity is my daughter, and the kids he referrs to are his two sons, daniel and roberto and his brother's son, matteo. gus is his brother.

    Every state that created a class of people with the express purpose of discriminating against them is guilty of passing anti-constitutional laws that must be overturned lest the Constitution be torn down for lack of honoring it. It is really funny that those people who have been most afraid that "the other side" is hell bent on destroying the Constitution have been the ones actually doing just exactly that. The good news is that we have not quite sunk to the point where you can pass laws that defy the Constitution and get away with it for too long. The bad news is that they got as far as they did. The worst news is that the worst of the haters moved their attentions to Africa where they have been successful in starting a genocide , and India which just made homosexuals criminals just for being alive even if they aren't killing them like in Uganda and soon in Nigeria. I followed that whole disgusting mess. It was caused by extremist Biblical literalist Protestants and the Archbishop of Canterbury let them get away with it while the Pope (not the current one of course) put his fingers in his ears and did nothing.

    What if all the gay men & women had the right to tell heterosexual bigots who to love & marry? I bet you bashers, haters, and bible thumpers would sing another tune. LOVE is NEVER wrong !

    @Arumizy
    No, the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.
    Did you just dive right into commenting without even reading the article?
  • #28
    !
    @Arumizy no but full faith and credit is, if you recognize one marriage from another state you have to recognize all. You can not treat legally married people differently. Why don't you see this? Are you suggesting marriage only be legal in the states where they are performed?

    @Speedieg so then all states should be forced to recognize other states Concealed carry license and such then right?

    I have yet to still hear a legal and lawful reason to make heterosexuals a privileged and protected class. It is of no interest to the state nor fed to interfere with a legally binding contract between two adults.

    god never will what, recognise gay marriage? obviously you're not really up on what the bible says, are you. there are many cases of where god has not only endorsed gay marriage, but has pushed people into it.

    God also does not accept adulters, who have left their Sanctified Marriage .
    Putting aside what God joined together and No man can put asunder for any reason according to Paul, one of them is a non-believer.
    Churches are full of adulterers choosing to live in sin everyday tbey remain in their adultery. There unsanctified marriages are concluded with a marriage license that is issued not by the Church but by Ceasar(the gov't).
    Some of those in such unsanctified marriages are even blasheme,saying God forgives them.
    It's a lie! Scripture says God hates adulterers.
    Didn't Jesus tell the adulteress, where are your accusers, they are not here to accuse you,nether do I.
    The clincher is that he also told her,go sin no more.
    The Scripture says there will be a day when even the very elect fall.
    Yes calling what is bad,good.
    He also said thake the pole out of your eyes, so you can better see to remove the splinter in mine.

    @DontBlameMe2 - Did God tell you that personally, or are you relying on the statements of others who claimed to know how God feels?

    @leoa_owner Christians preach against adultery... I'm not sure what point you are trying to make. Are you suggesting everyone, gay and straight, have the right to marry because some choose to commit adultery?

    Good for them.

    My only hope is one day liberals care even half as much about my second amendment rights as they do about gay marriage.

    I know you aren't holding your breath anymore than I am. Liberals only care about bending and stretching as much of the U.S. Constitution as will allow them to further their agenda. The parts they don't like, they ignore completely.

    Gun owners as a group should use the Equal Protection Clause to protect their rights against anti-gun laws in unfriendly gun states.
    There are far more gun owners in America than homosexuals.

    If you were being denied your 2nd Amendment rights, and had been for your entire life, that would be a valid comparison.

    I care about the Second Amendment. I do have a problem with hotheaded, trigger happy idiots carrying them around in public though.

    @commonsense51 what was that about forcing what down the throats of anti equal rights people like yourself? Are you opening that mythical closet ?
