@ Worf:Rationalization weakens society's view of right and
wrong. Religion sanctioning it, is an example. Pathetic.
@vdubbin' --"People are celebrating the demise of
traditional Christian values"Many religious people disagree with
you. Many Christians, as well as people of other religions, SUPPORT gay
marriage. Many Christian (and Jewish) denominations are already happy to perform
gay wedding ceremonies. They DO NOT think that this is the "demise of
traditional Christian values".Perhaps they believe in the
"traditional Christian values" that tell us to LOVE one another rather
than to JUDGE on another."Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord
your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your
mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like
it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets
hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22:37-40"For the
entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: 'Love your neighbor as
yourself.' If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be
destroyed by each other." Galatians 5:14-15"There is only
one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But
you—who are you to judge your neighbor?" James 4:12

reality. The truth shall set you free.
I can't believer these comments! People are celebrating the demise of
traditional Christian values like savages dancing around a funeral pyre. What
you all fail utterly to understand is that those same values (and our ability to
restrain ourselves from doing the things that make us "feel good") are
what made this nation great in the past. You claim a great victory at the
triumph of sodomy, some of you cheer at anything that runs against the Church.
DO you seriously not understand that the reason this place is nice is because of
the very things you seek so fervently to destroy?And I find it
interesting that when the Church disagrees with the gay community, they are
being bigoted. So it would make sense, logically speaking, that when the gay
"community" disagrees with the Church, the gay "community" is
guilty of that very same prejudice...
RanchHandRationalization weakens society's view of right and

Prop 8 has now been dismissed due to lack of standing.I'm not
sure what all the ramifications of that decision will be. Wiser heads than I
will have to explain it to us through the news media.
Okay, in essence, and from only a very quick look, DOMA appears to be dead in
all sorts of ways.Prop 8 hasn't been released yet.
@worf;Discrimination weakens society's view of right and wrong.
Religion is an example.
The DOMA decision has been released.From the court's
decision:"DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal
liberty ofpersons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment. "I
haven't read the whole thing yet. Stay Tuned.
After the Supreme Court ruled late last summer 5 to 4 in favor of Obamacare
I'm not expecting good news for common sense and decency to prevail. The
ruling I (sadly) expect is the absolute ultimate in calling "evil good and
good evil".How long, Lord, how long until you come and
straighten all this mess out?And a mess it is.....
Gay marriage weakens a society's view of right, and wrong. Abortion is an
There are those who still see the societal benefit of strong traditional
families with children reared by a mother and father who respect one another and
recognize the divine nature of gender for reasons other than blind acceptance.
They may have a different perspective which isn't seeded in hatred or
predjudice as the term bigotry implies.
@Getting it Right;Bigotry is an even greater weakness; it shows a
lack of maturity and character.@O'really;Bring on
the worms then.@paintandestroy;That isn't logic,
it's belief which is fallable.----It's just
too bad that the SCOTUS is afraid to make the right decision and stop the
discrimination today. Why should we have to wait for equality? Why
shouldn't those who are supposed to protect the liberties of ALL Americans
do their job?No more bigotry. Not one day more.
@paintanddistroyso we are going to go through every failed argument
then? The "traditional" definition of marriage that those that appose
gay marriage have put forward barely dates back more then 100 years in our own
country and has never been a universal definition of marriage. I know we could
keep this all night but please lets not.
@Spring Street20 years? That "failed" logic has proven
unfailing for thousands of years.
@getting it rightthat failed logic that has been argued for the past 20
years is exactly why the decision tomorrow will likely not fall along the lines
@LDS Liberal- Don't forget a good day for those among us who
derive pleasure from anything in conflict with the LDS faith.
Praying the right decision will be made, but I fear it won't. Those pushing
for same gender marriage act as if they have no idea the can of worms this would
open if passed.
Homosexuality is a weakness like gambling, pornography, alcoholism and etc... We
are all born with a weakness. Some are born with a weakness of homosexuality.
I find ironic that the SCOTUS will provide as LDS Liberal says a day that is a
little better and a little bit brighter for many of us.I find sad
that men of God reading the scriptures and teaching them, still continue doing
what the pharisees did. As Jesus said: "For they bind heavy burdens and
grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves
will not move them with one of their fingers" Matthew 23:4.God
works in misterious ways and tomorrow will be a better and brighter day.
My inactive LDS family and I will be praying for our Brothers and Sisters, LDS
and non-LDS alike, tonight who only seek fairness and acceptance from all of
God's children. May tomorrow be a day of great celebration for you and
your families.If our prayers come true then I want to be there
throwing rice at Utah's first same sex marriage. God Bless you
I support Mormon prophet Monson(speaks for God) and Pope Francis(speaks for
God)They think it should only be legal for a man and woman to marry
"Many experts think the court will strike down the section of the Defense of
Marriage Act that defines marriage as between a man and a woman for purposes of
federal law.They also expect the court to avoid making a decision on
California's Proposition 8."I believe the "experts"
are right on their predictions. Tomorrow, same-sex marriage will
essentially be made legal in CA. Life will go on.
Homosexuality is a weakness just like pornography, drug addiction, alcoholism,
gambling and etc...You are born with such weakness nothing more.
Buckle up everyone.The End of the World happens tomorrow for
uber-Conservatives.for the rest of us, it'll just be like
any other day...and for some, one that's a little better and a
little bit brighter.
