"Liberals think the constitution should be re-engineered every few years like an iPad." Yeah, bleeding hearts like Thomas Jefferson, who thought we needed to have a constitutional convention every generation. Parker's moronic article will be yet another joke in a few years, just like those who predicated the collapse of civilization if we allowed blacks and whites to marry, or (gasp) letting blacks vote.

Homosexuality is not scientific.

Yea, being black is the same as some dude wanting to have sex with another dude. How intelligent.

Patriot: SA didn't say being black was being the same as one's sexual orientation. No one who supports equality says that. Being a woman isn't the same as being Jewish. However, the common thread through all these groups, is a legacy of injustice and civil rights. Gay citizens are already law abiding, tax paying and shouldering the equal responsibilities. There are guaranteed equal rights and protections that go with that. One's heterosexuality, doesn't give you any more moral (or other superiority), than white skin does. See?

Du2: Blacks suffered discrimination because people used them as scapegoats to blame all of their inadaquecies and failures upon.
Not the same for homosexuals. They want to force everyone to accept that lifestyle as perfectly normal and criminalize everyone who says "it isn't". The can't stand the fact that others would speak out against it as if words would kill them.
Already in states like Massachussetts, you can be fired from your job for speaking out against it. Now, I know for some people that would be ideal and suitable but then we have that pesky old "CONSTITUTION" thing regarding "free speech". Bummer!!!

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...
