Marcus Aurelius: It will distract the voters from how badly their government is hosing them down, so it's not a bad strategy. It sure beats talking about the REAL issues facing the country.
Three Crooked Squirrels: Decades of social-science research have "shown that every child deserves a mom and dad," he said, adding later, "I think children will be hurt."
bdub77: "Marriage was created by the hand of God Allah. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy GodAllah has instituted," Bachmann said.I'm misquoting the crazy b*tch here to make a point.
vernonFL: Please proceed, Republicans.While you're at it, why not throw in another Obamacare repeal, or an abortion ban?
"Stop waving the Constitution in my face! It's just a god damned piece of paper!" --- the last president all the "libertarians" on Fark voted for
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Ralph Reed, a leading Christian conservative and head of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, denounced the ruling as "an Orwellian act of judicial fiat" and said he will join in the effort for new legislation to replace the Defense of Marriage Act.I hope the irony of this sentence is not lost on people. I've underlined the key words to make it a little clearer.
I_Am_Weasel: bdub77: "Marriage was created by the hand of God Allah. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy GodAllah has instituted," Bachmann said.I'm misquoting the crazy b*tch here to make a point.Technically speaking, it's the same.
coeyagi: Republicans using constitution Bible to change constitution.FTFY, subs.
factoryconnection: How many times are we going to hear "just think of the children!" while this tantrum plays out over time? These religious conservatives, seeking to amend the constitution to codify THEIR religion as OUR religion have realized that they can't condemn the gays as sodomites, monsters, demons, pedophiles, and the like because, well those sales pitches fall flat when you're not preaching to the choir.But they can appeal to emotion: "Think of poor Jimmy, with no daddy to teach him how to throw a fastball. All he's got is two mommies, and they do that UNDERHAND GARBAGE! We must AMEND THE CONSTITUTION!"Seriously, folks: what have you lost in this fight? Your marriage and benefits are unchanged. All that is happening is, over time, people are less and less interested in hearing you railing on about "the gay agenda" and the "sodomites ruining America." How about you just write sermons on different topics... you know, New Testament stuff?
Wyalt Derp: It's funny how anything Obama or the Democrats do that they don't like is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!! - but then when it suits the Republicans, the Constitution magically becomes a living document to be updated according to their beliefs prejudices.
jjorsett: Republicans using the constitution to change the constitutionShort of bloody revolution, how else would one do it?
Lord_Baull: It sounds like you're on the right track, GOP.[i13.photobucket.com image 400x400]
Lionel Mandrake: ...because Republicans aren't wasting enough time already.Will they try 37 times?
EvilEgg: Yeah, that'll work. They are going to get 38 states and a super-majority in both houses.They'll just have to convince seven of the nineteen states that have already adopted some sort of marriage equality to accept a constitutional amendment.Or they'll just keep using it like they use abortion, to fire up their base and never really deliver on their promises.
Tomahawk513: I know I shouldn't be surprised, but come on guys. I don't understand people who always support obviously terrible teams (Browns fans, I'm looking at you), and I don't understand what people get out of always being on the wrong side of history.Personally, in 20 years, I don't want to have to make an awkward phone call to some person I offended begging forgiveness for my bigoted actions.
