Marriage: It's Complicated

No fault divorce is the pinnacle of Conservative principles. Let the "Free Market" decide and allow who remains married. Suppose a younger and more beautiful woman wants to seduce a man, get him to divorce his wife, and marry her? We CANNOT interfere with the Free Market, or we violate the Bible and Constitution. Free Market>God Constitution>God

No fault divorce, particularly the 110% Constitutional Williams v North Carolina Supreme Court decisions is among the finest and most well-reasoned case law that has ever been decided by a Court. Divorce for ANY reason MUST be allowed to maximize personal freedoms, religious liberty, and freedom of expression. If you can't leave your spouse for ANY reason, how can you be free to choose a different religion, ignore your religion's prohibition against divorce, and exercise your freedom of expression to send your ex-spouse a message that they displeased you?

There is no such thing as God. It is absolutely RIDICULOUS to consider that "God" is involved in marriage. The State defines what marriage is, and that's that
It takes four Justices to grant cert. That means THREE or LESS Justices wanted to grant a hearing. So that means Scalia, Alito, Thomas, or Roberts sold out Conservatives, no? Wow, all of them could have declined to hear this case

Whoa whoa whoa! What about the "Free Market" and "Capitalism" there Conservatives? When Arizona passes their "religious freedom bill" didn't supporters say "People are free not to do business with a company that discriminates against gays, this law just protects business owner's consciences"? So OKCupid and other people decided to attack the Mozilla CEO and the company by not using FireFox. That is the "Free Market" at is absolute BEST!!! EVERY Conservative should support this type of action. People made a public statement, and started using another browser because Mozilla hired a CEO that contributed to Prop 8. That is capitalism at its finest. Oh, wait. this was done in support of Gay Marriage, so Conservatives' views about the "Free Market" and "Capitalism" don't apply.
All of my "alcohol, adultery, fornication" in no way affected our Country. Not. One. Not. At. All.
No one has "lost" the Culture War. We now have the ULTIMATE Conservative principle: the Free Market of personal behavior. People can choose to follow Christian morals, or openly defy them without fear of repercussion. Christians no longer have police prosecutors and judges to enforce their morals. Christians now much innovate their message to compete with the secular culture. And now it's obvious that the Christian message is getting trounced by secularism messages. Therefore, Christians should "innovate" their message, and rely on the "entrepreneurial spirit" of American exceptionalism to compete against secularism. Maybe hire some Ad and/or messaging Agencies? Maybe hire Karl Rove to help out? Whatever the case, we have more personal freedom than EVER before, and that's fantastic news!

What about "Let the Free Market decide" that Conservatives like to trumpet? The economy now basically requires 2 incomes just to get by. Oh. Well. Women can do whatever they want! I just think the Conservative male on average has become absolutely psychotic and deranged that they now hold zero power over women anymore. Married women make up a substantial part of the workforce now, and that isn't going to EVER change. Though it does make my day when I read comments like this, and know that your way of thinking will soon be dead!

"the cost of living has driven many mothers into the work force like slaves who have no choice in how they want to raise their children" As Conservatives LOVE the "Free Market" the fact that the standard of living has escalated so much that it requires 2 parents to work should be fantastic news! Consumerism, 24/7 targeted marketing, and a whole host of innovative ways to market and sell have brought us here. the Free Market has decided it generally now takes 2 incomes to raise a family. So single earner families who are struggling or in debt should 1) stop complaining and deal with the Free Market or 2) have the other person go out and get a job
Belgium is a sovereign country and their duly elected representatives have passed this law. Conservatives should hail this as a model of democracy in action, no?
Don't confuse them with facts. They LOOOOVVVE to rail against "carbon dating", when it is Potassium Argon dating used for ages >40,000 years. Oh, and don't forget electron spin resonance dating. That is USUALLY more accurate that radiometric dating on the whole. So we can use potassium/argon dating, electron spin resonance, the strata layer, and a few other techniques to obtain a data +/- standard error. Thus, we have MULTIPLE methods of verifying the age. Shhhhh, keep that quiet though. I love to see the creationists look like idiots when arguing "historical science' may have been different a few thousand years ago...
