Today you could repeal the 13th amendment and 'states rights' wouldn't make slavery legal.
Oh, what did I say about the 10th? You going to point at it and say the states can do anything they want?
Uh...no it's not. It's an anomaly. It's like saying "people with 12 fingers are worth promoting and celebrating" or "cancer in children is worth promoting and celebrating". You don't promote or celebrate that which should not be.
Tolerate it? Yes. Accept it? Yes. Deal with it? Yes. Celebrate and promote it? Oh hell no.
We're not talking about 12 fingers or Cancer, are we?
But they would have the legal authority to do so. Any power not explicitly delegated to the federal government by the states is reserved to the states and the people. So what is your point with that odd statement?
So, what you are saying is that you agree that the South had the right to keep slaves and the Union was breaking the law?
That's exactly what we are talking about. Homosexuality is an anomaly. That doesn't mean homosexuals should be beaten, attacked, tormented. But you sure as hell don't promote and celebrate it.
No - because the U.S. Constitution was legally amended.
Why not, if they feel like celebrating? I mean, they've had to put up with ignorant morons for decades.
Pretty much. Anything outside of the federal government's 18 enumerated powers. The people of each state can decide for themselves how they want their state to operate.
