The final three choices are terrible.

@heyfur_1213 believe it or not, many people believe in those choices.

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 would happily throw them into a country run by a theocracy if i could.

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.

The supreme court should not have had the power as gays already had the same right as straights. They added a new right for both.
TBR says2015-06-27T11:03:36.4754799-05:00
What "new" right would that be?
xhammy says2015-06-27T11:34:35.0784366-05:00
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.
TBR says2015-06-27T11:38:23.6473711-05:00
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.

@xhammy Why the heck would they marry someone of opposite sex if they're homosexual?
xhammy says2015-06-27T12:37:01.7516608-05:00
Doesn't matter. However it does mean that they DID have equal rights even if the rights were not equally useful.
xhammy says2015-06-27T12:38:34.1663528-05:00
A man has the right tampon even though its useless to him, doesn't mean its decriminalization to not make a "manmpon"
xhammy says2015-06-27T12:39:03.0439933-05:00
There was a minor typo there but you get the idea
triangle.128k says2015-06-27T12:41:54.0076810-05:00
So why don't we just give homosexuals equally useful rights? What's wrong with letting them getting married?
triangle.128k says2015-06-27T12:42:18.6142708-05:00
And what why would a guy need a "manpon?" For what?
triangle.128k says2015-06-27T12:43:27.4378777-05:00
It would be like saying someone in a medical field should be paid nothing, but a person in a legal field should be payed a lot.
triangle.128k says2015-06-27T12:44:41.3364988-05:00
Then you can say it's not discrimination because "A doctor can easily quit their job and become a lawyer."
TBR says2015-06-27T21:04:42.4084108-05:00
Just like all those bloc people has equal right.... Just if they stopped being black, that's all.
xhammy says2015-06-27T21:07:23.7159141-05:00
The straight person had the right to marry the opposite sex, the gay person had the right to marry the opposite sex. That is equality.

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.
emporer1 says2015-06-27T23:23:13.7957746-05:00
Should have been the choice of the state's themselves. The Supreme Court, constitutionally should not have been able to alter such a law.
themightyindividual says2015-06-28T10:53:56.4590128-05:00
The federal government should not legalize gay marriage, the states should take that power. Some states like Mississippi and Georgia don't want gays to marry, some like California and New York do.
themightyindividual says2015-06-28T10:56:18.4845516-05:00
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.
themightyindividual says2015-06-28T11:01:29.8001789-05:00
To xhammy: You are correct.
TBR says2015-06-28T11:54:24.1234525-05:00
@MakeSensePeopleDont - Yes, we do understand it. Do you?
