Redefining Marriage Sign of a Lost Society

So. BEFORE the passage of same gender marriage by POPULAR vote, all we EVER heard from people like Star Parker (to be clear, by 'people like Star Parker,' I mean bigots) was 'Let the People Vote.' So. Now that 'the people have voted' and have voted in FAVOR of EQUALITY, people like Star Parker do NOT want 'the people to vote?' Jeez. What a transparent, cowardly, hypocritical way to represent your God and Savior is all I can think of to say. This has ZERO to do with God and Marriage. It has EVERYTHING to do with the 'christian' heterosexual seeking to cement their personal religious beliefs into civil law. 'christians' have over-stepped their bounds. And now they must learn a valuable lesson.

No, you perver the word "equality". Equality in the sense that you mean it is "good" and "evil" are one in the same.

It is not the same and if you can somehow bring Jesus into your argument, how do you figure justifying homosexuality and something that he described as "between a man and a women....becoming one flesh" as something that's the same as joining two women or men together.

Hey patriot, get a clue - the Bible is not going to qualify as a legal resource for this argument. You can love it all you want, and I would defend your right to do so, but to enforce it on others is absolutely not allowed. Read your constitution.

The Constitution and this nations basic concepts of civility and justice are bible based off Judeo-Christian concepts. Don't believe if you don't want to. Just take a trip to D.C. and the Washington monument and look at the engravings, the Jefferson Memorial and read all of the references to God, the Supreme Court Building and the walls in it that have Moses carring the 10 Commandments....etc, the list goes on.

You get a clue.

"based off of" is one thing, but the constitution specifically says that you can't use any part of it or any other document, including religious scripture - to deny rights to Americans. So, again, the Bible is immaterial to the argument aginst gay marriage. You are simply expressing your religious views. But they are not relevant to the legal argument.

One significant development in the recent election was votes in four states approving same sex marriage initiatives. Until now, all previous state referenda to approve same sex marriage – 32 of them - failed.

The Wall Street Journal editorial page – a place where conservatives usually turn for intellectual capital – saw this as cause for celebration.

According to the Journal, marriage definition should come from voters, not from court orders. Americans, they argue, have “shown themselves more than capable of changing their views on gay marriage the democratic way.”

In other words, our definition of marriage should follow process, not...
