    No, it’s about the fact that most Americnas are in favor of gay marriage — not just gay rights, but gay marriage now.
    58% of Americans support gay marriage.
    Only one-third oppose it.
    81% of adults between 18-29 support.
    The only age group that tilts the other way is 65+, and 44% of THEM support it.
    Increasingly Americans see being gay as something you just are, and therefore as deserving of equality as any other American. We believe in personal freedom, and that includes not having the government tell you whether you are married or not.

    Very well stated.

    What is strange is that it is generally Republicans who are against it yet they want government out of our lives…

    Yes, they seem to want “Smaller Government”, and “Less Government Interference” in day to day life, as long as it’s THEIR lives!
    Anyone else’s lives, they want to totally control
    and tell them how to do every little thing!
    Just another example of the Republican’s operating policy of “Do as we SAY, not as we DO!”

    What is the difference between a gay marriage and gay rights?

    Every time I have heard someone say the Supreme Court is behind the times they have had their hat handed to them. Left Right doesn’t matter.

    I’m baffled as to how a civil contract between 2 consenting adult people affects anyone else. When it was illegal to marry out of your race, the right wing declared that changing those laws would destroy marriage. Seems people are still getting hitched. How does what Jane and Shirly do in Topeka threaten your rights or values in Tampa?

    Funny everything I heard about Roberts is that he is brilliant. Even the left admit that the man is.

    If it isn’t right for you, don’t do it. What others are doing in their home is their business, not yours.

    It isn’t his decision. Nor is it his business.

    If not marriage, a civil union giving the same rights to “couples”.

    No, I think marriage belongs to two consenting adults. The church can have holy unions, or something else. Separation of church and state is required everywhere else. Should be here too

    Gay rights have been for things like equal treatment in the workplace (e.g., not being fired for being gay, or the former Armed Forces policy). People who were willing to say that people shouldn’t be fired for being gay were unwilling to let gay people get married — to each other, anyway. (One of the world-class stupid statements by Ann Coulter was that of course gay people can get married — to someone of the opposite sex.)
    Gay marriage appears to be the highest form of gay rights — the one that people held out against the longest. But that is finally fading, with the exception of right-wing Islamic countries and right-wing evangelical Christians.
