It’s great to see people marching for Marriage, but I am still thinking of how Roberts double-crossed us over Obamacare and knowing that his Dyke Lesbian Cousin is in the Supreme Court room watching him.

Can’t wait for the media to vastly under report the number of people that attended today’s March for Marriage.

I bet they say it was a couple thousand when the pictures indicate it could have been hundreds of thousands.

To: Maelstorm; All
While I admire patriots who stand up for their constitutionally protected rights as evidenced by this March march, I question if patriots understand what the Constitution indicates about "government" power to regulate marriage as evidenced by the constitutionally irrelevant "Every child deserves a Mom & Dad" signs that I see in the pictures.

From a constitutional perspective, the states have never delegated to the federal government the specific power to regulate marriage. Not only is this evidenced by the Constitution's silence about marriage, gay marriage therefore not a constitutonally protected right, but the Founding States made the 10th Amendment to clarify the Constitution's silence about things like marriage (and abortion and euthanasia, etc.) make such issues unique state power issues.

Next, regardless of today's PC spin on the Equal Protection Clause of Section 1 of the 14th Amendment by the liberal media to justify gay marriage, please consider the following. If liberals would also read Section 2 of 14A then they would see that 14A was not made to prevent the states from making laws which discriminate on the basis of anything not expressly protected by the Constitution. This is because Section 2 shows that 14A itself discriminates on the basis of sex, age and citizenship, these issues addressed by later amendments.

14th Amendment, Section 2: Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States (emphasis added), or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

In fact, regardless of the Equal Protections Clause of Section 1 of 14A, the Supreme Court decided in favor of a state law which prohibits women from voting despite Virginia Minor's claim that her citizenship gave her the right to vote.

Minor v. Happersett

So I would also like to see signs referencing the Section 2 of 14A and Minor v. Happersett in addition to emotion-moving signs which reference Mom & Dad.

Note that Obama guard dog Shep Smith of Fx News just emphasized 14A Equal Protections Clause concerning gay marriage. How long would it take Smith to read Section 2 of 14A on Fx?
