Going to my first courthouse wedding this summer. It's a close friend of the couple who is doing the ceremony on the lakefront.
I'm actually really excited to see it just to see the differences.
Do you also believe the passages that say people should be stoned to death for adultery? Different people read the Bible and understand it to mean different things. And our founding fathers not only understood that but embraced it ... which is why the First Amendment of the U.S Constitution prohibits any official establishment of religion by the government. The government is supposed to be neutral on religion. That means whether the government permits same sex marriage or not certainly shouldn't be based on what a particular religion believes.

See I would consider you tolerant of homosexuality then. You don't have to agree with it, you just have to tolerate it, since, you know, 'Murica.
Take an upvote.
By the way, how ironic is it that opponents of gay marriage are now butthurt?
I'd love to attend atleast one, I wouldn't want to lose the pageantry of my wedding though.
Eric Holder not prosecuting immigration cases is an abdication of the duties of his office.
To accept that this is all consequences of elections is absurd.
You aren't many steps away from advocating absolute power for elected officials. The way the State of California handled this was by manipulating the law, and the Supreme Court allowed them to get away with it. Had they defended it the Court would have had to decide whether or not it could overturn a legitimately passed law, would have had to determine the case based on the merits like they should have.
The governor got what he wanted through the back door. This wasn't a victory for gay rights in California it was an asterisk put next to it. Major social change through judicial fiat and government manipulation is not they way things should be done. Gay marriage may happen in California now because of legal technicalities, hardly a victory for the cause and will open it to scrutiny from this point forward, and as the article mentioned sets an awful precedent for the future.
And hell the Supreme Court neutered itself on this. If all it takes is one federal court ruling and a state administration that won't act to get things overturned, who needs the Supreme Court?
And I'm sure you'd feel the exact opposite if the Supreme Court ruled that it was Roe v. Wade which should be struck down instead of DOMA...
I support the DOMA decision...try to keep up.
They have been overstepping their boundaries since WW2, which is a big reason we are in such a fiscal mess right now.
The WSJ agrees with my thoughts on elected officials skirting their duties to protect the laws they swore to uphold when they were elected. This sets a horrible precedence that will turn around on the libbies soon enough.
Exactly. The fact that some people are perfectly okay with officials picking and choosing which laws they will enforce is disturbing. The Obama administration is the worst ever. If they don't like a law they won't enforce it, effectively overturning it. If Congress won't give them a statute they want they will enact it through Executive Order. Lol. It's unbelievable, and if it continues from one administration to another will undermine the very fabric of our government structure.
This must be what it was like to see Augutus render the Senate impotent.
Chris Christie says hi
You may run like Hayes, but you hit like $*!#
I have a dream that some day my religious text will be used to suppress people and deprive them of their rights. Until that day, Chrstianity is our best option.

He is political posturing IMO.
