Whats the next big thing for conservatives to discriminate against? First it was blacks (still kinda is) then it was gays, and now what? They can't get it through their thick skulls that the US was built on the ideal of "all men are created equal." These are some hypocritical nationalist, Christian F_CKS we're dealing with.
I'm so happy about this. Its so easy to get brouvht done by all of the bad things in the world, but yeaterday was amazing ive never felt all of the affection and love and acceptence and celebration in the world so strongly. I still feel it today and probably always will feel it more than i did. Its just a feeling that the world has become a better place.
They already had the same EQUAL right: to marry the opposite sex, the supreme court gave both gays and straights the rights to marry the same sex. They were already equal the supreme court had no business there.
When the state and federal government give special rights to married couples they mixed government in this business. The SCOTUS made no law. They created no new right. They upheld the equal protections for all citizens contained in our constitution.
Does anyone understand the role of the Supreme Court in the U.S.? The role of the Supreme Court is to interpret the law AS WRITTEN. Never has it, does it, nor should it ever create or alter laws as this breaks the constitution. It's only, and I stress ONLY, job is to read the law and state what it means. In this case, if the law stated marriage is between a man and a woman, then that is how it should have been interpreted by the courts. Any alterations MUST be made through congressional oversight and action.
I think in our haste to get this gay marriage deal ironed out, we are all forgetting the long term consequences of what just happened. We have now given the Supreme Court the precedent to go out and change laws without proper channels.
Remember the original chants of the Colonials? "NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!!!" We made our constitution the way it is for a reason.
To reece: Actually, it was Democrats who supported slavery. And also everything you said means nothing because you said "Christian F_CKS" which proves that you are discriminating against Christians and conservatives and therefore you cannot prove your point without being a hypocrite.
