Which state will be the last to legalize gay marriage?Page 14 of 19    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19)

The Court chose to not follow its own words or the Constitution and create law based on "feelings." Remember that song?


It reinstated some of which already belonged to American citizens when they were born-- their rights. There wasn't any specialized agenda to destroy America or anything else.

It means my son won't have to face unlawful and unconstitutional discrimination, in the future.

That says it all. And he hates Christians, the people who believe in God.


And I am sure if I asked you to provide proof of your statement you would do what you normally do, and that is run and hide and pretend that the question was never answered.

Because you can't, as it is obvious you do not have the mental capacity to understand criticism from hate.

As if I was to use the some criteria on you, one would conclude you hate women, gays and people who are not white.

well, we didn't have to wait long for conservative reaction to the ruling. Ted Cruz has announced its his calling from God to change the Constitution and attack the rest of the GOP. He's going to make term limits for Supreme Court Justices. funny how it wasn't an issue for him before when they ruled in his favor. Now its suddenly a war on...something. As if shutting down the government didn't make the GOP hate him enough, this should be another nail in the coffin. Him and Trump should be able to help make the GOP race look like a clown car.

Cruz didn't have good answers when challenged on the Today Show. If Supreme Court Justices were elected for terms, wouldn't they be subjected to the world of Politics?? That is the whole purpose of lifetime appointments. Theoretically you have people of integrity appointed to the bench who make rulings uninfluenced by political pressure.

And can somebody please explain this hating and persecution of Christians nonsense. They are 70% of the country. Just how are they being persecuted and who is doing the persecution?

They are being told they can no longer persecute people and to them, that is persecution.

As they want to the USA to not be a democratic country, but a religious one.

Exactly... They believe their religion mandates them to mistreat people they don't like... and not being allowed to do so is persecution... because they can't freely harm others without consequence... as they believe their religion tells them to do...

And all the rest of us are hypocrites... We're "racist" because we won't "tolerate" their often and loudly STATED desire to harm others...

For a lot of people, loss of dominance, advantage, and superiority amounts to persecution and victimization. It is the con artistry that is part and parcel of a persecution complex.

Friend of mine was preached to in church about Christian persecution. She couldn't explain to me how they were being persecuted though.

I am not against abortions, but there is an innocent party involved in that decision isn't there?

As for guns . . . their problem is when they are used to violate the rights of others.

Cigarettes? Second hand smoke is deadly.

Drugs: sometimes turns addicts into criminals who violate my rights.

Are you a FOX News Entertainment analyst?

Yes, the burning of 6 black churches in the south must point to Christian persecution and away from racism. Unfvkinbelievable!

If it was, then you could simply copy and paste it.

To either you do not have the ability to copy and paste anything that even remotely proved your claim or you are just making baseless accusations.

And the neocons wonder why 22% of US children live in households that are at or below the poverty line. Which is exactly why republicans continually attack programs like food stamps, WIC, and the school lunch program.

And which states are the most food insecure states in the Union?


Eight states exhibited statistically significantly higher household food insecurity rates than the U.S. national average of 14.6% between 2011-2013:

Arkansas 21.2%
Mississippi 21.1%
Texas 18.0%
Tennessee 17.4%
North Carolina 17.3%
Missouri 16.9%
Georgia 16.6%
Ohio 16.0%
From Feeding America

Would every one of them be red states? YES!

When will people understand that gay men or gay women have no interest in "straight" men or "straight" women.

I sing in plenty of clubs that are very apparently attended by the gay community and not a single woman (or man) has ever hit on me or shown the least bit of interest in dating me or "converting" me or attacking me. They could care less if I'm there with a man or woman ... they are all there for the same reason I'm there. They just want to hang out and maybe get up and sing a song or two.

Sometimes I drag a male friend with me (could even be a current boyfriend). No one hits on him, or tries to convert him, or attack him. They really just don't care. I suppose there might be a mild chance that a bi-woman might try to hit on him, but who cares? If he's really not interested and considers himself with me ... that's all that matters. I'm not the type of woman that feels any insecurities when I go out with a man. If another woman (no matter their sexual orientation) can lure him away ... then she should have at it!

LGBT's have no interest in attending a church that does not accept LGBT people. Neither do they seek to join organizations or clubs who have no tolerance for them.

I seriously doubt it would please them to have to coerce anyone to perform a ceremony that celebrates love and togetherness and friends applauding them in what is one of the happiest days of their lives.

Why do people have a problem with two people having a ceremony in which they are legally allowed to dedicate their lives to each other, and sign for each other in matters of health, to file income taxes together (and probably get a better tax rate)?

What it all boils down to is that those who are against Gay Marriage just have their noses stuck in others' intimate life. We don't question what a man and woman do to share an intimate moment, what do we care what the LBGT people do?

We don't question what a man does with his penis when he's in a relationship with a woman, so who cares what he does with his penis if he's in a relationship with another man?

We don't question what a woman does with her body when she's in a relationship with a man, so who cares what she does with her body if she's in a relationship with another woman?

That is completely not true. I know plenty of gay men who target straight men in hopes of converting them. I've been on the receiving end of it, myself. Just because it's not happening in your little corner of the world doesn't mean it's not occurring elsewhere.

Apparently you're confused. So, let me attempt to explain the law so that you might understand.

1) Freedom from religion and freedom of religion mean a pastor, minister, priest can refuse to perform a gay marriage in their church.

2) A county, city, town clerk who denies a gay couple a marriage licence is breaking the law.

3) A minister, pastor, or priest who's day job is county, city, town clerk is breaking the law if they deny a gay couple a marriage licence while performing their day job duties. They can refuse to perform the ceremony in their church.

Simple...does that clear it up?

Cotter- no one really cares about the private physical. Many considered the question to be whether it should be considered equal to a man and a woman and whether society should give its imprimatur. The Supreme Court has resolved the first. Based on what I have heard and read since the ruling, generally society hasn't bestowed the second.

Sorry B&B , my BS meter went wild. Go to 10-14-14 Washington Post for details. Justice Scalia reports coercion. The court decrees proxy's will be forced to perform the services. when obongo lit up the "blackhouse" in tranny coloring he wasn't kidding. Stalwarts will lose tax breaks. Straights and Whites should look elsewhere. We are , dude. But don't lie. We know what is in store for Straight , White , Christians . Trust me , the balkanization has just commenced. Again , out of Ice Age a New America develops.

Let me guess: Jesus comes back to earth to take on the anti-christ, there is some sort of rapture, and all good Christians ascend to eternal nirvana while rejects, like the jews, are codemned to hell. OR God is just to ALL. gays, straights, all religions OR God and Jesus are imaginary, never existed and all mankind is condemned to eventual non-existence.

How much longer will it be... until "stupid fvck" starts to invoke metaphors of China and "bullets to the back of the head"... for "straight, white, Christians"... The poor "persecuted" souls...
