  • To me I don't give a hoot what the feds think on this one, it is against Gods law so it is not right. As all parents do God gave us laws to follow and that was/ is one of them.

  • WOOHOO!

    I think it is great. Of course it is unconstitutional. You can't help who you love.

    Mine either. Don't worry about it honey, people that disagree with find any little thing to complain about to change the subject.

  • Yes I agree with it. What about freedom? People should be at liberty to make their own choices. Clearly, we are still being run by ignorance and greed. By the way, I am a Christian. People have twisted Christianity and believing in God and Jesus into this arogant, judgemental thing that it should NOT be. Just because you don't believe in it or agree with it doesn't mean that others do should feel the same way you do. However, that is just me and I believe in freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I have both lesbian and homosexual friends. They deserve the same things that others do!!

  • I think it is a step in the right direction, but if you actually read the ruling, it is considered unconstitutional because it was a FEDERAL law. The judge felt it infringed on the states' rights to make a determination themselves on what marriage is. A ruling like this makes the states that have laws banning same sex marriage stronger.
