equality is exactly what it is. to do otherwise is a direct violation of the the consitiution of the united states of america. you do know what that is, right? the framers of the constitution did not say “everyone except those who are homosexual/lesbian” you idiot. it was written for all the people of the united states including, unforunately, you and your fellow members of the intolerant not so moral majority.

i am straight as an arrow, happily living with boyfriend. i do not even pretend to understand half of what goes on in the gay community. however, i will not stand by and allow these people to be denied the rights and privileges that i as a straight person enjoy. these people are entitled to love whom they choose and, yes, marry whom they choose. they are also entitled to have their marriage legally recognized by law. as by boyfriend says “why should these people be denied the joy and wonder of the divorce courts”.


Read the constitution sometime. It clearly says that the rights should not be voted on by the people. That’s why we have courts. The fact that this even went to a vote was unconstitutional.

It won’t last and the Supreme Court won’t buy into it. A homosexual judge, made the ruling and had the audacity to say prop 8 was based off ‘moral decision making’. Yet him being gay and overturning millions of fair votes to ban gay marriage wasn’t a ‘moral decision’? What a terrible contradiction and unless you live AND vote in the state of California, this isn’t your issue. Just because you’re gay and in another state, does not mean this is about you. People aren’t furious because gay marriage ban was overturned. Californian VOTERS are pissed off because what is the point in having a vote when a single judge can overturn the public majority? I’m not worried about gay marriage, I think everyone should live their lives how they want as long as they abide by the justice system. I’m more concerned with my vote as an American and a Californian. This isn’t about gay people versus straight. This is about our voting and it becoming void. This judge is whack and made a fool out of himself. We need equal rights, for everyone ..but this isn’t the way to do it. These celebrities are pretty ignorant as well for not even understanding the situation. No offense, but the majority of the public on this matter is completely oblivious to the fine-print as well.

great bews that Prop.8 overturned!!!!!

I love you Adam!!And I love you Ellen!!!!!


What part of the vote in the first place was unconstitutional in the first place? Basic rights like getting married to who you want are not suppose to be put to be voted on by people. The vote itself was unconstitutional and deserves to be voided. The vote violated the 14th amendment.


That should be what part of the vote was unconstitutional in the first place don’t you understand?

@Dawn: There are other ways to settle an unconstitutional bill or prop in this case. The fact that a gay judge silenced millions of votes ..whether right or wrong in the first place, using the exact same thought-process as those he deemed ‘wrong’ is what becomes unconstitutional. Again, it’s not about gay rights, it’s about people losing their right to vote. Think bigger picture, it’s not a worry about this one vote. It’s a worry about potentially having an important vote in the future, becoming void using these same tactics. Do you honestly think this was a spontaneous decision by the judge? He’s crossed his T’s and dotted his I’s. This is politics we’re talking about. People will bend the rules and create loopholes for anything to sway the momentum in their favor.

you have the intelligence of brain dead squirrel on life support. i’m sorry to say this but the consititution protects you and the other brain dead squirrels in your camp. i really hope and pray that the supreme court does the right thing, rules in favor of gay marriage. then all you intolerant jackasses will have to crawl back under the rocks you slithered out from.

Totally agree! It’s probably because Jared is gay himself.

to ck_always @ 08/05/2010 at 7:55 pm

your moron!! this is just not california’s issue. it’s america’s issue. you’re right it’s not about gay rights. it’s about human rights!!! the right of all individuals regardless of race, religious believes AND SEXUAL ORIENTATION to enjoy the same rights and freedoms as any other american citizen. THAT MEAN, IDIOT, THE RIGHT TO MARRY AND HAVE THE MARRIAGE RECOGNIZED BY LAW.

you don’t like gay marriage, fine you don’t have to. but guess what, you do not have the right or the privilige of interfering with another american citizen’s rights. do you have any idea how stupid americans like yourself look to the outside world.

Argentina (deeply catholic), belgium, Canada, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal (also a catholic country), South Africa, Spain (also a catholic country), and Sweden figured it along time ago. these countries grant legal recognition of same sex marriage. and guess what!!! these countries have not fallen apart,; the world has not come to an end.

Golden Values @ 08/05/2010 at 8:06 pm

A man marrying a man, a woman marrying a woman???? What is this world coming to? Is nothing sacred anymore? God help us all, that’s all I can say about this.

@to ck_always:

Gays are also allowed to get married in Mexico City. Mexico is a mostly Catholic country, too.

i was not aware that mexico also allows gay marriage. says something about the united states doesn’t it. intolerance reigns supreme here.

Slow down, It ain’t over yet.

No homo. lol

@to ck_always: You really ..really didn’t read my initial post, at all. Who said I was against gay marriage? Calm down and read the first post. Let’s go over yours together, shall we? You’ve completely misinterpreted my entire opinion, thus attacking me on a personal level out of self-rage. I can sense a language barrier between the two of us. Perhaps you misunderstood a particular word or phrase that led you to these assumptions? Again, I’m not attacking gays, if it’s any concern to you, I voted against Prop 8 to begin with. What exactly are you not clear on? I’m discussing political imbalances, not sexual discrimination. Congratulations on trying to attack me on a personal and social level as an ‘American’. If you want to stereotype me, fine, but do so as the open-minded educated kind. I know this is the internet and proper grammar and punctuation are intimidating and perceived as an aggressive attitude, but those are not my intentions. If you don’t understand that, then talking to each other is useless.

ck_always @ 08/05/2010 at 9:03 pm

@Dawn: What does Catholicism or Mexico have to do with this?
