With ROE overturned the right has some momentum we get this country back.

No, not even close to the same thing, but that will be the dems new talking point.

Good grief. What good would that do?

And from a purely civil perspective, I don't think it can be overturned.

The thing that needs to happen is to get marriage out of the gov't, period.

It's not going to happen.

Look, i'm not super in favor of gay marriage, but one can at least see where the equal protection aspect of it comes in.

Abortion is not a right.

Not going to happen.
What case is working through the courts now to overturn?

Put the power in the hands of the states where it should have always been.

absolutely Fr.Charlie, we're taking the country back. Gays have as much a right to get married as women do to abort their child.

just members of the same sex, like it has been for 99% of the country's history.

It's actually very close to the same thing. The Court created a constitutional right out of thin air in contradiction to 200 years of how they decided similar cases.

I don't give a crap one way or the other about the underlying issue, but decisions Roe and Obergefell damage our system of government. It is the real "damage to democracy" that the left is always whining about.

Even with that logic - you'd want it through the right channels. Judicial legislation isn't the right mechanism.

Next is seperate water fountains for blacks and whites, also no blacks or women allowed to vote. Just saw it reported on CNN, but not sure when the decision will drop.

It's weird how inept you are at making reasoned arguments for your position. Nobody said ban it. Like abortion, it should be up to the states.

marriage should be taken out of the governments hands regardless of sex, gender or whatever. They are just in it for the monies anyways

Why so people care so much about gay marriage? Seems like a foundation for more families which should be celebrated

Why does government have to be involved in marriage in the first place? Beyond simply recording the contract, no single consenting individuals should ever have to kiss the ring to get married. Government is in far too deep in all of our lives. Let's not weaponize it against those we disagree with.

Liberty is ugly because it forces us to not use government to prohibit the life choices of those we disagree with. Always always always choose liberty and stop treating the federal government like a got dang HOA.

How self righteous of you. I cam see this is truly a genuine concern and not driven by republican talking points or homophobia.

I actually agree with that. I was pissed 22 years ago when I had to get the state's permission to get married. It shouldn't be their business. Nonetheless, that is what the representatives of my state decided, and I'll go along with it.

Now, with that must come fundamental changes to the tax code and clearer laws about responsibility for children your sire or bear.

"Homophobia" is the wrong term to use because those that it's meant for aren't afraid of them. More often than not they simply hate them.

This.

If your are going to codify a package of tax benefits, medical care rights, etc, to two people who sign an agreement, there's no rational reason to deny that to an pair of people.

The institution of Holy Matrimony should be in the churches alone.

I don't care who puts what where when two people are together.

I don't care who you choose to love.

I don't want to think about what two people do in private, and I'd just as soon they don't think about what my wife and I may do in private.

Just shut up about it.

I've been saying this forever. Get the government out of marriage.

If you want a civil union in the eyes of the government for reasons including, health care benefits, tax purposes, etc. then head down to the court house and fill out the paperwork.

If you want to be united in holy matrimony before the eyes of God Almighty, visit the church.

You can do one or both. They're not mutually inclusive.
