    Let’s not forget the other nations ‘out there’ who also influenced those
    few states in the USA that support marriage equality and the human rights
    that come with that.

    I hope your son is gay so you will disown him and I will adopt him and be
    an accepting and loving father, something you clearly will not be.

    Poor thing, you are Russian. You’re country has deep hatred of the west in
    it entirety. It makes no sense for you make an appeal to us, on our
    colonial times. The problems that destroyed Rome are the same that faces
    you and us. Weak infrastructure, poor leadership, over expansion and time.
    Nothing can be born of your hatred. I do pity you. I hope one day the east
    and west will begin to understand each other. I’m so sorry that for now you
    have to remain full of hatred.

    Even though I have nothing to gain from being a supporter of gat marriage
    other than knowing I did the right thing by supporting it. I’m glad you
    guys and gals of future generations will not have to go threw the pain and
    suffering that many gays and lesbians have had to go threw.

    It’s tough when the country’s direction goes counter to one’s own politics
    and principles. Me- I felt adrift when Bush was president. I didn’t mean to
    imply the U.S. was the best place on the planet to immigrate to. This is
    just one survey, but the Reputation Institute just published their list of
    best countries in the world. Canada came out #1 (third year in a row),
    Australia was #4 and New Zealand #7, with the remaining slots going to
    Scandinavian and western European countries. U.S. was #22.

    Hmm. It seems there must be at least a few other things that the U.S.
    represents since so many people want to immigrate here. Things like freedom
    and civil liberties, civil rights, opportunity, entrepreneurship.

    How can you compare marriage equality to a moral downfall? Also though many
    of the things you mentioned are bad thing’s, most of them are trivial and
    the more important thing’s in societies like the murder rate, crime rate,
    etc. is what you should be focusing on and excluding blips like recessions
    & times after natural disasters, most industrial countries are seeing these
    real moral issues declining, yes not everything is getting better but the
    biggest issues are & gay marriage is a good thing

    The US Supreme Court, A Universal Lesson in Constitutional Right
    Jacques Coulardeau & Ivan Eve

    This essay studies the Case of California’s Proposition 8 from its adoption
    by the voters in November 2008 to the most recent US Supreme Court ruling
    on June 26, 2013. This essay is essentially centered on the legal and
    constitutional side of the case and the arguments dealing with Amendment 14
    to the US Supreme Court, Article III of teh US Constitution, and the
    concepts of due process of law, equal protection of the laws, strict
    scrutiny, standing, all concepts that should be universal in all legal and
    judiciary systems in the world. The case then provides the world with a
    full demonstration of these judicial human rights that in fact should
    define the concept of Habeas Corpus.
    This case deals with same-sex marriage in California. The US Supreme Court
    refused to rule on the constitutionality of Proposition 8. They vacated and
    remanded the Federal Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit’s ruling on the case
    because the people speaking for the State of California did not have the
    necessary standing. That ruling indirectly affirms the ruling of the
    Federal District Court that had declared Proposition 8 unconstitutional.
    Though it does not create a legal void in California, this ruling
    encourages the ProtectMarriage organization to start a new round of legal
    proceedings in the California Supreme Court.
    This long essay would not have been possible if the first and shorter
    version had not been encouraged by one of its first readers as follows:
    “I think your argumentation and logic is good. You shouldn’t be entering
    the rest of the discussion, maybe you can quote all the experts or send
    back to what was said in a footnote, but it is not your point. You are
    following the logic of the legal and constitutional system: Amendment 14,
    the Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court. What will happen, we can’t be
    sure, but you can project yourself in the future, and you are already doing
    it, by saying that the Supreme Court, despite taking a lot of time (which
    can also be to get the “temperature,” the mood of the country within the
    next few months), is very unlikely to commit itself with such an important
    issue. And your logic shows just that . . .
    So, in short, your approach is the most valuable as the case starts in
    California (and its norms) and shifts to the federal level (multiple
    norms): they all thrive under the US Constitution and Amendment 14.”

    Love is not a sin. But I know hell is created by mankind because it’s not
    real but at the same time it is because other people try to make other
    people’s lives a living hell with no acceptance and just pain with being
    with another human. So let the lgbt people feel heaven and their share of
    lifetime happiness. This marriage is no different from the same old stuff.

    The rainbow was originally meant to be a symbol of promise by God that he
    would never destroy the whole earth by flood again. Now the devil has taken
    the symbol and perverted it in an abomination to our Father and creator.
    Where is Honor to God in all of this? Where is the church?? To provide
    guidance according to the word with love. Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed
    for this same behavior. What is to become of the United States of America?
    My God… Help us ALL!! The bible says that hell will enlarge itself. That
    means that a whole lot of people wont make it into heaven. Please consider
    your life. Come to Jesus. This may be your last invitation. Turn away from
    allll of your sins. homosexuality is not the only sin. But it is the one on
    the agenda today. Please…while there is a chance to escape hell. Because
    once you are there…you can not get out. Pack your bags and leave the life
    of sin far behind you…and run into the arms of Jesus. He is waiting.
