The scary part is… I wasn’t the Blue text….
This is why I don’t tend to comment. It doesn’t get anyone anywhere. (This is really really really mild when it comes to comments)
It would be nice:
My version of what would actually happen:
“He was a real hero. I can’t believe they charged him with all that crap awhile back. If anyone could survive a plane crash like that, it is him. What were we talking about again?”
WAHH? This is awesome. I need a table like this for board games. I need it REAL bad!
(Reuters) - A federal judge’s ruling on Wednesday overturning California’s ban on same-sex marriage delivered a key victory to gay rights activists in a fight that may ultimately be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Proponents of Prop 8 would be MUCH better off not fighting this decision.
This is what it boils down to: There is still a majority of people in the United States who are against Gay Marriage. Politicians, who are elected by the majority, want to appeal to the voters so they put forth and support measures against Gay Marriage. Judges, on the other hand, are not so tied to the will of the masses. As demonstrated by this case, there don’t seem to be any valid legal argument to deny a minority a right because of sexual orientation. The crux of the anti gay marriage argument is that it will somehow damage heterosexual marriage. There is no evidence of this. Other arguments about reproduction and child rearing don’t hold up since there is no requirement for married couples to have babies. If this hits the supreme court, I honestly think they will rule in favor of gay marriage. This would then have an impact nation wide.
If Prop 8 proponents actually want to continue denying rights to a minority group, they should take this decision and avoid the Supreme Court. However, if they take this all of the way to the top they might end up forcing the Supreme Court to make a big decision on gay marriage that they won’t like.
It is possible that the Supreme Court just avoids any sweeping changes by making a decision that specifically applies to California’s Prop 8. It is also possible that the Supreme Court could rule against legalizing Gay Marriage, but I have enough faith in Judges to think that won’t happen.
If you have a good argument about why Gays should not be able to get married, please let me know. I have yet to encounter a good one.
