    We, the good people, believe that none of the anti-gay garbage in the Bible is really the word of God, because it is all stupid, and God is supposed to be smart.

    What do you think all the magistrates who didn’t resign are? They’re almost all Christians. They’re just Christians who understand and adhere to their duty to discharge the laws of their state impartially.

    Gay adults can consent to sex. Children and animals cannot. Recognizing that the right to marry should extend to same sex couples will in no way open the door to legalization of nonconsensual sex.

    Sorry, but no. Long after same sex marriage has become legal in every state, you and Fido will still have to keep things on the down low.

    To be a magistrate, you first have to be a lawyer, so they would all have known that they would inevitably lose any pointless lawsuit they filed after being rightfully fired for refusing to do their jobs.

    If you really regard willingness to impartially administer the law as a “political ideology test,” then, yes, I do want local judges to have to pass the “political ideology test” of being willing to impartially administer the law. That IS the way it’s always been, and it is NOT a first step on the road to Stalinism.

    They aren’t all doddering old coots. One of them is more of a rat-faced carny type who probably hasn’t really been serving for all that long. Several of them are at least young enough to know better.

    When you are serving as a representative of the state and its people, your personal beliefs don’t matter. You accept that when you take the job, and when you can no longer accept it, the only freedom to which you are entitled is the freedom to quit and look for some other job.

    If you’re alone, you might as well sit down. Who’s going to know?

    Old people are allowed to marry.

    No, the moderate mainstream has decided that people who don’t believe that your religious convictions are valid do not have to live their life in accordance with them.

    Gay agenda or no gay agenda, no family court judge in the country is going to take an eight-year old kid away from a couple with whom she has formed a filial bond and turn her over to a stranger. What’s done is done.

    I hope they won’t.

    When you become a judge on the circuit court of appeals, you get some power to decide if what is legal is moral. When you’re a local magistrate, your job is to administer the law as it is written.

    Did you get married secretly and hide the fact that you have a spouse? Just knowing that someone is gay and is married to a person of the same sex doesn’t making their private sexual behavior public business any more than yours is when people know that you are marries to a person of the opposite sex.

    Big Brother has not changed anybody’s moral convictions. The change has come about organically as people rethink their positions and realize the spurious nature of the arguments being advanced against recognizing an equal right to marry.

    It’s not right for the majority to oppress the minority. That’s why same sex marriage is being made legal even where supporters are not yet in the majority. Other people being forced to live in accordance with your beliefs, which they do not share, is oppression. You being denied the power to enforce those beliefs upon them is not.

    People who oppose same sex marriage aren’t a majority any more. They may be still have a majority in some regions of the country, but nowhere do the people who get really upset about things that don’t affect them outnumber those who are for it plus those who don’t give a crap.

    Grow up, you lunatic. People hurt each other. That’s just the way it is. You can start out with the best of intentions and not do anything wrong, but still end up hurting somebody.
