The US Supreme Court pretty much struck down DOMA (the full name of that law is so nonsensical I won't repeat it).

So the poll is: how do you feel about it?

Of course when the headlines die down we'll get the full details. But this is a really, really, really good thing.

Where is the "I don't care" choice?



That should come with Poll 8.1 "Blue" in 8 months or so. :)

Selfishness rules. In God We Trust has become a joke.

Based on his answer choices the question should have been written, "have you stopped beating your wife?"

The unintended consequences will be felt for years.

Some of us trust in reality and not fiction.



Interesting.

I don't disagree, but it begs the question: how would you classify trust in the basic decency of people to see the value of other people's lives and happiness?

No one has a more difficult task, than the atheist in trying to prove something came from nothing. Evil cannot exist since there is no good. So in your reality all selfishness is acceptable. That is your reality, not mine.

If a person does not believe in something they will fall for anything (see: global warming alarmism.)

On the ruling we can take comfort in the fact that it is narrower than the headline suggests and states still have the right to define marriage.

Today is a lesson in elections having consequences and the danger to come if there are more liberal justices and less originalists on the court in the future.

I just never got it. Why the hell should I care if two men want to get married or two women? Really, what difference does it make? What's the reason, if you don't say it's religion.
