Do you want blueberry or maple syrup on that?

I always sez if you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything. We have let this problem fester for too long and now we may be stuck with it.

I hate the idea of an amendment (and it will rapidly become unmanageable, as court usurpations proliferate)-but it has to be done.

I agree wholeheartedly. I really don't want to amend the Constitution, but I just don't see any other way to stop this. Plus, if the amendment actually gets passed, it will serve notice to the courts that the people will act when the courts get too far out of line.

And, yes, DOMA is plainly unconstitutional. I think Clinton signed that with a wink and a nod to his homosexual supporters.

I always wonder what part of "thou shalt not lie with a man as with a woman. It is an abomination," these folks don't understand? It's pretty clear cut to me. They face an angry God unless they repent and turn away from their sin, just like everybody else.

And if there was to be an amendment I think it should be to remove the requirement that states must recognise each others marriages.

That is a very good idea, but it does not attack the root of the problem.

The more I think about it, the more it seems to me that the power of the Judicial branch should be radically circumscribed, directly, by a Constitutional amendment removing court jurisdiction over a broad range of domestic affairs.

That way, the battle would only have to be fought once.

As it is, with a so-called "marriage" amendment, court decisions requiring constitutional amendments will proliferate much faster than teh Constitution can be, or should be, amended.

They need Jesus. He's the only one who can change their behavior, if they really want to be changed.

I disagree totally. The founders understood checks and balances and the need for the battle to be fought more than once. Otherwise you might be living under a set of rules made by Hillary and her deviate allies someday.

Nonsense! What we need is for the gay bishop to become pope! Then perhaps Mr. Ed can take his place as bishop and the world will grow in peace and harmony

I agree. Romans 1:18-the end of the chapter explains them very well.
