Nation Ready to Make History: US Supreme Court Takes Up Gay Marriage

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

Marking what advocates call "a significant legal and cultural moment for the country," the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in Obergefell v. Hodges, the landmark gay marriage case that many legal experts believe will pave the way for full marriage equality in all 50 states.

"The first will tackle whether the U.S. Constitution's guarantees of due process and equal protection under the law cover a right to same-sex marriage."

Is this the same equal protection that gave Bush the election in 2000?

I'm sorry to seem insensitive but I am sick to death of this goddamned "issue."

Gay people should be able to live their lives as they wish without interference from anyone, governmental or corporate. If they want to get married then they should be allowed to get married. End of discussion.

We have far more pressing issues before us. The topic of gay marriage is being used by the corporate media to distract the American people from those issues.

Americans have no voice in our constitution or our lives. We vote and judges take away that vote. Bush was elected this way. Americans give up stop paying taxes or supporting these perverts in war or their lobbying interests. Quitting the system when the system is bad and perverted.
