Interesting. Now it comes down to the will of millions of people in two states
to protect what they believe is the key to a healthy, happy, and prosperous
society versus a small group of adults that believe that shouldn't matter.
How much power do these Judges think they have?
Lovely Deseret: Doesn't your comment echo the decent churchgoing people of
Alabama circa 1840? From their point of view, race classification was "the
key to a healthy, happy and prosperous society" which justified rejecting
the small number of white people that believed race shouldn't matter [to
say nothing of the POV of slaves].I'm not comparing that degree
of racism to current heterosexism, but the logic is the same. Time to review
your history textbooks and come up with a better argument than majoritarian
dominance, i.e. might makes right. WWJD?
The sooner, the better.Although the DN and many of its readers
disagree, marriage equality is inevitable.The longer it drags out,
the more animosity, the more damage, the more bullying of kids in school.
You know, a lot has changed since amendment 3 was passed. If we were to vote on
it today, the % of people who would vote for amendment 3 would be far from the
66% it was! I thank God each day for giving me a wonderful family. They are all
LDS, but I don't think very many of them would pull this traditional
marriage thing with me. I have been open for years and my partner and I have
been together for 15 years. It hasn't had any negative effects on anyone
and my dear wonderful parents are together. Their traditional marriage
hasn't been hurt a bit! Can you imagine that? My niece was married in the
temple. I guess I didn't do much damage to her traditional marriage! My
nephews were all married. Explain to me what it is that you are saving
your marriages from? If they are that fragile, you better get yourselves
examined because your marriages and vows have nothing to do with your gay
neighbor down the street! It truly sounds ridiculous! Keep traditional marriage
and I will marry my partner and you can call it untraditional. It is absurd!
