    Says Boss- quoting Boss- citing Boss.

    This entire thread is just Boss's contrarian opinion fest, with Pop's trolling added in.

    There you go- Boss doesn't care what States do.

    Odd for someone who so pasionately argues about how horrible the courts were for overturning same gender marriage bans imposed by STates- he just doesn't give a damn whether States themselves decide to have inclusive marriage.

    All that matters to Boss is Boss's opinion- citing himself- quoting himself.

    1. Yes there is, it's called "ratification" and it has happened 17 times since the Constitution and Bill of Rights was formed.

    2. No State or House candidate in the US Congress has ever ran and been elected on the promise to legalize gay marriages.

    3. State legislators have ZILCH to do with federal law and federal courts.

    Well....how do you plan on asking unborn children about whether they want their future parents to be married or not?

    It is always hard to tell when Boss is deliberately lying- and when he is just an ignorant ass.

    Gay couples have been getting married in the United States since 2013- Obergefell didn't change the nature of marriage at all. What Obergefell did do was recognize that the rights of same gender couples are the same rights as opposite gender couples- and Boss hates that.

    And Obergefell didn't 'establish' marriage as a fundamental right- that had long been established- as noted in Zablocki

    By reaffirming the fundamental character of the right to marry,

    Poor Boss- still trying to equate equal rights for gay adults- with him wanting to marry his dog.

    children don't get a voice in defining any laws- note children are not allowed to vote.

    And Children are not partners in a marriage- though sometimes they are the product of a marriage- they become participants in a family.

    Seriously- how can anyone beyond a 6th grade education complain about there being 'no national referendum' on 'gay marriage'?

    There is absolutely no provision in the Constitution for a national referendum.

    Boss once again displays his ignorance of the Constitution.

    No a "referendum" and "ratification" are two different things. Under the Constitutional Amendment process State "ratify" and amendment. Under a "referendum" there is a direct vote on an issue placed on a ballot before an electorate. There is no process for a national referendum on any issue.

    I assume you meant "Senate" when you wrote "State" and yes there have been plenty of elected officials that supported equal treatment for same-sex couples.

    The Federal government recognizes Civil Marriages performed by States. The Federal government doesn't "do" marriages, the "recognize" (as in acknowledge the existance of) marriages perfomed at the State level.

    So ya when State Legislatures and State Ballot Referendums approve of Civil Marriage for same-sex couples that does impact Federal recognition.

    Poor Boss- still all pissed off that gay couples can marry now- excuse me- his 'best friends'.

    And still scared gay men are going to change the law so they can force him to have sex with him in public.
