    What's there to thanks him for? He did nothing for us.


    This is a very dangerous and stupid campaign. Shame on Get Equal!icon_evil.gif

    Why would you be opposed to people thanking him for his decision?

    Because... thanking him implies that he did something for our community out of his own will or generosity. He did not make this decision based on his own views. He is a judge... not an activist. His job is to interpret the Constitution. We have nothing to thank him for.

    This judge looked at the facts and the evidence presented by our lawyers and based on the Constitution, he decided to favor our side. It is pointless to thank him--he's supposed to be unbiased politically… it’s nothing against Judge Walker as a person.

    We should thank the lawyers who fought our case in court. Thanking the judge will only add fuel to the religious right's claim that this judge was involved in judicial activism.

    Very valid point. --- makes perfect sense.

    We should thank the experts who testified and the lawyers who fought our case in court. Thanking the judge will only add fuel to the religious right's claim that this judge was involved in judicial activism.

    We should be thanking the lawyers and plaintiffs who made this case, not the judge. The judge was just doing his job as a neutral, unbiased entity making decisions and conclusion based on facts presented to him.

    Wholeheartedly agree. Judges get thanked in the form of their paychecks.. thanking them otherwise would imply that he did us a favor. He didn't - he interpreted the constitution as it applied to this case and made, what most of us believe, is the correct judgment.

    Thank the couples who put their private lives in the line of fire, if you're going to thank anyone.
