I think it's great that when people love each other, any people, that they can marry...

I was SOOOOOO happy to hear this!!!!

It doesn't sound like it's going to change anything in the short-term, though, since the appeals process is still going on.  The case will probably be heard by the Supreme Court, and we know that there are more conservative Justices than liberals.

I can't believe you are applauding the people who voted to take rights away from a group of people.

Really?  You don't believe that some things shouldn't be held up to majority rules?  What if the majority wanted slavery?

America was founded by the ppl for the ppl. That would be majority rule imo. Slavery doesnt compare.

Why doesn't slavery compare?  If the majority of Americans felt that interracial marriages should not be allowed, would you support that?

Didn't something similar happen when slavery was abolished and when interracial marriage became legal?
