This government was never supposed to be about what the majority wants. This isn't a democracy, as Ben Franklin said "democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting what's for lunch."
It's about guaranteeing equal rights for everyone. Part of that is your rights don't extend past someone else's. So your religious beliefs can't intrude on their 14th Amendment right to equal protection.
That being said, their rights shouldn't extend past yours either. Only way to do that is to not have the government recognize any marriages. It should be strictly private. Some two lesbos can call themselves married and you don't have to believe ir, just like you don't recognize the belief in idols and but still tolerate Hindus have the right to do what they do.
Conservatives are going to lose the big battle (loss of the right to associate) because they worry about minor crap like this.

Does he know that his African brothers sold slaves to his other African brothers before they were sold here in America? Why doesn’t he speak out against modern day human trafficking and the slavery we have going on right under our nose? Nevermind–I already know the answer to that–it’s not politically expedient for him .
He probably knows this as well, but ...... since this is about "healing the nation" maybe we can place blame where it belongs ..... stop blaming the wrong people ..... correct the misconceptions; like only 1.4% of southern whites owned slaves. 4.5% of free black men in the south owned slaves and almost 30% of those owned 10 or more. In fact, if a slave was abused it was most likely his master was a free black man

Um–my guess is that they haven’t read ( and wouldn’t believe) the Bible and therefore they know not what they do .

this is how it works: by mandating the acceptance of gay marriage–it leads children into the belief that this kind of behavior is normal. Children aren’t old enough to make this kind of decision and will create many more gay people than there would’ve been hadn’t the Supreme Court stuck their noses into an issue they had no business doing. Therefore, in the future–there will be many more confused children and gays and less heterosexual couples. Got it?

God is higher than the supreme court–their opinion matters not.
Their decision will stand for a time. But, one day those in Washington, including most judges at all levels, will be damned to hell for their failure to honor their oath of office and for their selfish pride and corruption that have ruined a nation established by Christ Himself through divine inspiration given to our Founding Fathers.

This has got to be a bill proposed by a Democrat, pretty soon they’ll be telling us how to wipe our butts
How does that work? I mean, we know gays don't procreate (except when they do), but all the straight people who were getting married and having babies before will still get married and have babies. Gay marriage doesn't sterilize straight people, or force them to get gay married.
Correction - they DO know what they do. God has made it very clear, both in the old and new testaments, that homosexuality is an abomination.
If you know your Bible history, you know that every time Israel rebelled against God, He (God) let them (Israelites) be DESTROYED by their enemies. First by the Babylonians, then by the Romans.

Obama’s a bad joke being played on the American people and the world
I believe down the line -- maybe way down, who knows -- we'll find out he's really the "creation" of a bunch of old progressives. Wouldn't want to insult anyone and mention names, but one should have been 6 feet under 40-50 years ago.
