Was Judge Vaughn Walker right in overturning California's gay marriage ban?


JimmyStewart: August 14, 2010 10:01 p.m.

It's going to the Supreme Court and eventually the Supreme Court will uphold Prop. 8. As long as Obama doesn't appoint anymore justices! I heard lawyer Ted Olsen arguing that it's like judges who ruled about interracial marriage, that the judges had to stand up for what is right. I would agree with that when it comes to who you are as a race and human being. But in this case it's about approval and validation of a sexual lifestyle. People love their sin and it's not just homosexuality, it's alot of other sins too. You can call it "homosexual marriage", "same sex marriage" but that doesn't make it a marriage. It takes a man and a woman to make a child not 2 of the same that's how we are DESIGNED.

Religious attitudes have no place in this decision, Jimmy. When you single out a segment of the population and tell them we will not permit you to have this right because we don't like an inherent characteristic about you, that is unconstitutional.

Besides, you've already contradicted yourself. You've said you agree to stand up for what is right "when it comes to who you are as a race and human being." Well, for homosexuals, that IS who they are as human beings. Your religious faith may not approve, but they cannot help being homosexuals any more than you or I can help having our eyes having been born a particular color.
