Thats why you and I always disagree as you see things through rose colored lenses which refuse to blame Dems .


ONLY politician in all of CA ocean of Dem congress-Senate to want the courts to rule for gay marriage or at least look at is a Rep named Arnold actually Jerry Brown also but not any other Dems.
I and at least 1.6 Million other Obama Democrats voted Yes on 8.

Thats the beauty of our government, its NOT just about majority rules. In cases like this the interests of a special interest group are taken care of as well.

Its no more right to make it illegal for gay people to marry then it was to make it illegal for a black and a white to marry. There are times the judiciary has to stand up and right the wrong of hypocrisy.

I applaud them and I am frankly ashamed of everyone that voted to deprive gay people of the right to marry.

This question goes out to 18Montclair...

If you weren't religious, would you still be opposed to gay marriage?
