When are these people going to learn that their religious hate is not constitutionally sound??

Geoff Peterson: I'm happy about the ruling, but I feel the headline is in poor taste and not up to FARK standards. Although a headline celebrating outlawing discrimination that refers to a derogatory epithet for said oppressed minority is pretty snarky.

I'm gonna give this one a pass.


LGBTQ  Some of them like that label....although none of my gay friends can explain to me what's the difference between G and Q.

Sharksfan: Judge Orlando Garcia, based in San Antonio, stayed enforcement of his decision pending appeal, meaning homosexual couples in Texas for the time being cannot get married.

Doesn't exactly sound like a "Good ole boy" out of Texas...


Garcias have probably been in Texas since they arrived with the Conquistadors. And he might even be a Jew, since they arrived with the Conquistadors too. Sephardic Jews that got out of the way of the century or so of tortured conversion to the Catholic church.

Besides, if he had been new blood, he would have had 5 names, 3 hyphens and an arriba.

God I have hated living in offices with right wingers. The tea party type ones are always very vocal about their beliefs and freak out if you have a different opinion than yours.

I try not to talk politics at work but when some of them go on I feel I can't just keep silent.

Among those defending the Texas ban is state Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is the leading Republican candidate for governor asshole in the state.

5th Circuit is heavy on the Republicans too, so don't hold your breath. 2 Clinton and 2 Obama appointees out of 17 active judges. 2 Carter and 1 Clinton with senior status out of 8. So 7 out of 25 judges hearing cases on that appeals court are Democratic appointees, 18 are Republican appointees.

That's actually kind of stunning.

Antimatter: mercator_psi: Hopefully Jan Brewer will look at this and think, "Well, okay, I guess I'll veto it."

Oh, who am I kidding? I used the words "Jan Brewer" and "think" in the same sentence.

If anything, I expect an Arizona type law introduced by the end of the week, and quickly passed in Texas.  the conservatives here cannot stand gays for some reason, and love to use them as a scapegoat.


...For what?

*sigh* I wish conservatives would explain this incredible power I apparently have to affect every aspect of everyones' life. I'd like to weild it.

/For the glory of my lord Satan, of course.

"no rational relation" to legitimate government

Is that legalspeak for "Your law is bad and you should FEEL bad"?
 
2014-02-26 03:59:38 PM  
The cities in Texas are bluer than people think. The mayor of San Antonio, where this ruling happened to have been made, was the speaker at the DNC.  My company here has had same sex benefits for as long as I've worked here, six years.  No idea how long before that.

Lot of social liberal, fiscal conservative types.

I don't really think congress could pass a law like that, unless it was an amendment.

Didn't you just say to keep it out of the Supreme Court? Seems like you just presented a far more compelling case for why they should.

I have no patience for people who take offence from somewhere it was not intended.  Just because you don't like it when I say "Wendy's new chicken burger is totally gay", doesn't mean I'm homophobic for saying it.  It just means I'm insensitive.

Lawd knows this is like trying to nail jello to a wall, but last time I heard the term try to be defined it was either people who have some sort of kink like BDSM  and so are heterosexual but not "straight" or just heterosexuals who really really hate they they are so normal and so invented a category just for them so they could be oppressed too.
