    Old link but a goodie. I don't like her show because it's like watching the same episode over and over again (not her fault), but I love her.

    Is this old news? Sorry, bro... i had never seen it and it was such a measured and reasonable response that I thought I would post it.

    Have you heard of this new singer?? Lady Googoo or something like that? she might be big one day!

    Haha, true! Basically it's like if you've seen one episode of her show, you've seen them all.

    It's always nice to hear a rationale in favor of same-sex marriage from a legal perspective rather than from a moral/religious perspective.

    Judy this thing some want to call gay marriage should be called Civil Unions, as it's all inclusive, leave marriage to the straights and bisexuals who have long had access to to the religus hetrosexual institution of marriage. But they too can have access to Civil Unions, as it's all inclusive; battle over.

    I haven't seen this before either, but it was well said. I've always been a fan of her.

    On her show she deals with nutjobs and crazypants, so in this setting with no histrionics, she is measured, logical, reasonable and pragmatic. It is especially important for men/women in her age bracket to see this.

    Over 200 CEOs in North Carolina wrote to the Senate opposing Amendment One (the constitutional one man/one woman defnition of marriage). The straight community is up in arms and what the people of North Carolina are saying (loudly I might add) is "preventing gay marriage hasnt produced one job for anyone. Why do we care when we have people out of work." The electorate may be getting sick of having morality crammed down their throat.

    The lady has some good, insightful and interesting viewpoints. I agree with her on each one. We need more thinking people like this in politics.

    I've always enjoyed watching her. She just scored more points in my book.

    I love Judge Judy's NYC directly spoken style.

    If she was President, people would respect this answer. (except for right wing fundies, but we're a secular nation, so we should ignore them.)

    A pattison dilemma- when both liberals and conservatives in a thread have said they like (or dislike) something. "Oh no....what side do I take?"

    Well worded, careful, and logical response to that question besides a knee jerk yes or no. Definitely an impressive point of view from one who is meant to interpret the law. I wish she'd seen to make clear that what religious people feel has nothing to do with the law given the separation of church and state but a great answer nonetheless.

    Then go get a civil union if you want.

    I pay the same taxes as straight people, live in the same county as straight people and have the same rights as straight people and should have the option of marriage.

    The word marriage matters.

    Civil unions aren't marriage. They are a version of separate but equal.

    How did that work out last time?

    All rights apply equally to everyone.

    Separate but equal is ANYTHING but equal.

    All rights apply equally to everyone.

    Either we are all matter or none of us matter.

    End. Of. Argument.

    Did you say "Springer" - same show over & over. Her personality and curtness always turned me off to the point of wanting to talk back to the TV or reaching in to clock her. Kudus to her for the support.
