    Good. Now the 4 percent can go back to gentrifying all those poor inner city areas and make them more welcome for the liberal arts major's who want to live in the city but prefer their "diversity" to be in number of vibrant restaraunts and not actual people.

    Who in CA has it right? The Majority that voted against Prop 8?

    Bigots beware: head back to your basements and bunkers; human rights means EVERYBODY IS TREATED THE SAME, not just straight, white Christians.

    In before all the butthurt!

    Glad to hear it.

    If religious conservatives would go away, Constitutional conservatives would have a weight off their shoulders, and could get this country righted again.

    Equality means equality.

    It's not complicated.

    I am glad with the decision.

    Government has no business with the marriage at first place. It is the religious' business. The Government should never gave the benefits to marriage (tax break, etc).

    I do not accept gay practice.

    If a guy wants to marry another dude, what business is it of the government? I dont actively support gays mainly for the same reason i don't support hispanics who are fighting for immigration reform....they both heavily vote for liberals who are taking away other people constitutional rights.

    I love my wife. You can love anyone you want. But don't tell me you husband is your wife.

    I'm extending a marriage proposal to any, or all of you, right now.

    Just think, "we" can now be treated just like the old fashioned and outdated traditional family, AND "we" can now rake in all those government benefits that used to be reserved for married folks.

    Let's get married and get our fair share of the government teat.
    Somebody else has to pay for it, but what the hell it's not really their money anyway.

    Any takers?

    I'll buy you a nice ring and we can honeymoon at the local Motel 6.

    I can't figure how they deem it unconstitutional. It's a state law. There is no constitutional right to marriage.

    Equal protections clause.

    I'm glad this happened. They have as much right as the rest of us to be miserable.

    You think that if the Republican party did not differentiate itself from the Democrats on the issue of gay marriage that Republicans would suddenly begin to favor all the advances of socialism and the rest of the Democratic platform and begin voting Democrat?

    That's very debatable.

    If the conservative political side stopped harping on about abortion and marriage, and focused on the Constitution, small government, lower taxes, etc, we could pull a lot of votes away from the left.

    Take away the issues that make certain people "one issue voters", and we could see a swelling of our ranks.

    I'm a kitchen designer, and spend a lot of time with folks from all walks of life. I have worked with gay and lesbian couples that, aside from the gay marriage issue, are very conservative. They hate taxes, big government, the FSA, Obummer Care, and the rest.

    These people would be true conservatives if we dropped the religious part of conservatism. Since there is supposed to be a separation of Church and State, this is something we need to sort out in our own house.
