    Same sex marriage in CA is legal!!

    But does unconstitutional ban mean legality? Don't they still have to put it to vote?

    No, gay marriage wont be legal in CA while it is going through appeals but it does mean that the issue will go to the SCUTUS which means they will rule on whether or not gay marriage ban is unconsitutional or not, and can get us equality all around.

    Oh really? You're going to play that childish game? Okay:

    You can't play both sides of the fence. U support Obama and he is against same sex marriages.

    P.S. And who says I "support Romney"? The election isn't even here yet, I haven't decided who I'm supporting.

    The Republican party that u support is actively trying to take gay rights away. Obama is not.

    Catfish5 baiting and teasing should just be ignored. He obviously wants you to buy into the BS that you must support a Democrat and be homosexual.

    Because on its face the facts truly pan out that when Democrats have majorities in government they really help gay rights.( 111th congress really helped right?)

    Intolerance comes in many forms. And the truth is a guy like catfish5 is unlikely to convince anyone but his own mirror image self of anything political based on the language and his thesis on many topics.

    So what is more likely to work?
    1) Preaching to the choir of liberal democrats? ( its kind of exhausted efforts and one can argue hurt efforts recently)
    2) convincing conservatives/ libertarians ? ( yes telling people they are bigots and haters is an O so convincing argument.

    I argue #2.

    The fact that banning it is unconstitutional does not make it legal. That is a different process.

    Betcha Frothy Mix will have a time with this in the primaries.

    I'm not a republican. Furthermore, only some republicans are actively trying to limit gay rights, not the whole party. You're trying to make it a black and white issue and it isn't.

    I do not support parties, I support certain ideas.

    Mock, just ignore the bottom feeder. Not worth your considerably superior intellectual gifts. He's running around thinking same-sex marriage is suddenly legal. Just more misinformation from him that he deals out on a regular basis in his panic that Obama may be in trouble in November. Gay marriage is now "officially" in legal limbo in CA while the courts sort all of this out. Hopefully, SCOTUS will agree to take this case and it will be put to rest one way or the other for good.

    Way to ruin some perfectly good news with your party induced bitching. I think you guys really outdid yourselves this time.



    It should be noted that, had the OP not started off the thread with a negative, thereby diluting the positive news, this thread may likely never have taken a political tone. But then, this is the status quo for the resident bottom feeder icon_rolleyes.gif

    FYI 111th congress 2009-2011 a big (ZERO) from a Democratic President and Legislative branch. DADT doesnt count, there was a court case and Obama was embarrassed into capitulating.

    get outa the way? what was holding the Democrats back in 2009-2011.

    As for tone, you may want to re evaluate how your message would be better received. It is not convincing and more likely to hurt our cause.
    Ever think about that?

    Better yet, go out and enjoy the gay rights that liberals have fought and won (and gay conservatives take for granted and fight against in lieu of lower taxes)

    And yet you get so cranky when you get lumped in with "all conservatives" this or "all right-wingers" that.....



    Probably because anyone with a brain knows that things are not always so black or white. There is a huge gray area in which I suspect a great many of us reside. I seriously doubt that there is ANYONE here on RJ who is not pleased with the news coming out of CA today. That Catfish would suggest that there is just shows how clueless he really is -- mostly just a shit-stirrer -- but, then, YOU already know that icon_wink.gif
