    How about the inalienable right to 'pursuit of happiness'? I still don't understand how a gay marriage infringes on other people's rights. No one has to associate with people they don't want to. If my religion bans shellfish, can I insist you don't eat crawdaddies?

      We do now. The Union stands.

        Here is Obama's response about prop. 8 which would ban gay marriage...

        "I think it's unnecessary," Obama told Sway, in response to a question sent in by Gangstagigz from San Leandro, California. "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that's not what America's about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don't contract them."

        This is political speak at its finest. He is keeping his "religious core" in tact while at the same time maintaining his intellectual constitutional integrity.

        We know where he really stands. He understands civil liberties and is a constitutional scholar.

        The opposition to gay marriage is strictly religiously based and has no place intermingling with constitutional liberties.

          I believe that was aptly answered in "Pursuit of Happyness", honestly.

              Speaking of same sex marriage, is Mitch McConnell being outed a la Larry Craig?

                That's because we will probably have legal adult Polygamy and legal adult incest. I'm not sure what will come after that though.

                  Man's best friend? The happy couple, Larry and Rover?

                    More likely Emily and Rover. The men will be too busy protecting the homesteads.

                            Been there, done that. When my wife gets catty, I end up in the dog house.

                              the real interesting question is not when people in the us will stop rejecting gay "marriage" it is when will the (blue) state higher courts stop rejecting the peoples decision?
                              ... nothing really ever changes my friend, new lines for old, new lines for old.
