    Political Party would deny to our citizens the right to liberty and self determination?
    Watch now as the once GOP works against some citizens of the District to deprive them of the right to marry.
    The Party of Lincoln has now become the Party of Avarice, Bigotry and Censorship - and nothing about the Republican Party is grand.

    Sort of like Dems blocking a Senator from speaking on the Senate floor for a whole 60 seconds.

    I'm not surprised you would make such a comparison.

    Surprised that some gay hater from Utah wants to rule over DC relationships? Really?

    Seriously though, fuck these guys.

    The party which supports states rights and local control - if and only if it fits their agenda.

    Fag bashing isn't a local issue for them, its more of a calling.

    Actually giving out marriage licenses that force other people to recognize a belief that they find deeply immoral is interfering with their right of self-determinations such as forcing insurance companies to provide benefits to same sex couples even if the owner of that company is deeply religious and does not agree with that belief himself. At that point you are interfering with that owner's right of self-determination to determine how they are going to live their own lives.

    And state's rights are just state's rights and DC is not a state but a federal district that has laws of its own so each one of us has the right to determine what laws the federal government can have over its own city-state since each one of us are citizen's of the federal government but because each one of us are also citizens of our own state governments then a citizen of arizona does not have a right to decide what laws a government of another state will pass.

    BTW, gays are not forbidden to get married. There is no such law on the book that prevents them from walking into a church that is OK with that belief and getting married under that religion's authority. That ability exist for hetreo and homos equally but what does not exist is the ability to obtain a superficial document issued by the state that says you are married.
