yes. Gay marriage is regulated by the states. And yes we can vote on it. If you want to vote against hetrosexual marriage then get up the petition and see if you can get it done.
That's what Virginia and much of the confederacy thought about regulating inter-racial marriage. How'd those votes turn out for you?

Biden needs to think more carefully about getting reelected before giving controversial opinions Obama wouldn't dare give.

I'm curious to see if this is posted. " Atheism to Defeat Christianity by 2038" caught my eye. I posted before but now two wouldn't get posted yesterday and today. I don't understand.

Just like blacks had to same right to marry someone of the same race as whites did?

That stupidity might work with the confederate supreme court, but it certainly didn't fly with the US Supreme Court.

Of course large numbers of blacks voted for the ban because the religion they follow is one of the more anti-gay religions.

We'll see what effect President Obama has on their views of marriage equality. The Maryland referendum vote will be interesting, since Maryland has the largest percentage of black voters of any state. It'll be a close vote. On the other hand, Maine & Washington with their relatively low black populations will pass marriage equality.
so far 32 states have had votes. All 31 turned down the gays. Pity.

So are you going to boycott NC? Should the democratic party boycott them?? They are holding their convention there.

<quoted text>It can't be "liberals playing politics" because at least one Republican justice (likely Kennedy) would have to side with the 4 Dems on the court. That makes it a bi-partisan decision which indicates it was made on constitutional principles rather than politics.

That's why even Justice Roberts hates 5-4 decisions; he knows they are political if all 5 Republicans vote for it while all 4 Dems vote against it.
well since Kennedy is a swing voter I don't think you have a leg to stand on. Also it's only political if the republicans (those that defend the const) vote a certain way. If democrats vote a certain way then it's upholding the const. That's too funny.

I am guessing that obammy care was also a political law?? No republicans voted for it.

the civil rights laws were passed that what's happened. Until then it was legal to ban them. Just as your prez said today. The first gay prez said today that it's a state issue. Right now 31 states have banned them. And more are on the way.

For the last time YOU CAN'T PUT PEOPLE'S RIGHTS UP FOR A POPULAR VOTE!

Gay marriage should not be voted on. Look up the term tyranny of the majority. Those anti-gay amendment are unconditional and will be overturned by the Supreme Court.

I am taking that you mean that confederacy thing as an insult. Well it's not. Not in the least. Even CA the greatest liberal state of all shot the gay marriage thing down. Pity

Propitiation 8 has been overturned. Soon gay marriage will be legal in CA again.

Washington and Maryland legalized gay marriage this year. Maine will vote to legalized gay marriage. Rhode Island and Illinois will legalize gay marriage this year. Things are moving in favor of gay marriage. And DOMA will be abolished soon.

by the most liberal overturned court in the land. And 31 states have banned it. In fact the gays have never ever won a single vote. How's that feel?

You act as if the civil rights laws said that there could be interracioal marriage... is that what you are saying?

You do realize that when a case goes before SCOTUS, they do not take a look at laws on the books... they take a look at if the law before them violates the constitutional rights.... so the civil rights law had nothing to do with it.

Correction... Il. DID NOT legalize gay marriage. The legalized civil unions. There is a major difference.

thats why all the BS about ovomitcare is just smoke and mirror politics

It doesnt matter if everyone wants ovomitcare, if its good, if it is the best thing ever.

the only issue before the scotus is if it is constitutional

thats why ovomitcare will fall...
the constitution does not give the federal gov the power to make anyone buy anything...
again its a states rights issue...

look at calif
passed prop 187 - 9th district ruled it unconstitutional
passed prop 8 - 9th district ruled it unconstitutional

it doesnt matter what the people want...
the marriage laws will stand.

31 states passed laws banning inter-racial marriages before they were all overturned by the US Supreme Court. What's your point?

There is no reason to boycott North Carolina, because that would only cede the state to the bigots. Whether at the ballot box or through the courts, sames-sex couples will have the right to marry in North Carolina eventually.

We can wait.
