    Whoever Obama nominates is going to move the court to the right, since nobody will be as Liberal as Stevens.

    Well at least this shows she has a basic grasp of the constitution as marriage isn't part of it at all...whether hetrosexual or homosexual marriage isn't in there.

    Why not? Because the constitution isn't there to give us, the people, rights....we get those from our creator and they are unalienable.....the constitution is there to limit the federal governments power.

    +1 for the new nominee for understanding this basic aspect.

    Except the only problem is that we don't get them from our creator and they are certainly not unalienable. Hence, they aren't rights either, since rights are things that cannot be taken away.

    The Constitution may not recognise the rights of gays to marry, but the Declaration of Independance certainly does:

    "...with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness".

    If you're gay not being able to marry is a violation of both your liberty and your persuit of happiness.

    Why wouldn't marriage be an inalienable right? Being the most basic and fundamental relationship that human beings have.

    Using that logic if you are a pedophile not having the right to sex with children is also a violation of the Declaration of Independence.
