Corbett, you and I dream of a day when that would again be true. But since the Dred Scott decision that screwed up so many things and arguably was a cornerstone in the path to civil war - the courts have drifted farther and farther from interpreting the laws and closer and closer to making law through decisions that interpret the law the way the court thinks it should apply to the social agenda.

Yep, I read them... I also read the opinions that surrounded the court decisions at the time. They are based on decisions by the court resulting from their interpretation of the law. You may well be the only one to have ever been even asked to show the license. But one example deserves another - We never have. Married since June 7, 1981.
Just like the Post Turtle could care less if any of We the People are upset... I could care less if the Post Turtle is upset.
I would pay money to hear Boehner state that he identified a need to have Netanyahu speak and he looked around to see what could be done and low and behold - he figured out that he had a pen and a phone.

And every one of your points is based on decisions by the courts based on a social agenda instead of what the law actually says - as you said, the "doctrinal developments". If the SCOTUS sticks with the law and not the social agenda that has been carefully and admittedly skillfully crafted by the homosexual activists over the last 30 years - they will discard the federal interference with State laws. There is no victory for either side in that type of ruling - but it does put the argument squarely where it belongs ... in the middle of public policy debate within each state. And in an odd way the SCOTUS would be forcing us all to deal with the issue rather than further polarize the nation through federal rulings that will be celebrated by some and rejected by others. The dream of fair and equal with the government and courts involved is counter intuitive since every ruling, law, and license takes from somewhere to give somewhere else - in this case funds for marriage benefits. The level playing field is possible, but you have to get the government completely out of marriage. Let us all keep our money rather than paying taxes that are then doled out to some of us who claim to be married (by the way, anyone ever been asked to prove that you are married?).

Never has been higher than 41% (1980) and has been declining since that time... It's a flawed calculation even according to the liberal hacks over at the New York Times... http://www.nytimes.com/2005/04/19/health/19divo.html?_r=0

I forgot for a minute... sorry about that... "The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God." - John Adams

God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever. Commerce between master and slave is despotism. Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Establish a law for educating the common people. This it is the business of the state and on a general plan." - Jefferson
