    Best known for her stellar idea that the Supreme Court should reference decisions from other countries AND has slowly whittled away the rights of Americans. That woman is an abomination. :rolleyes:
    She doesn't like what she reads in the Constitution, so she ignores it and uses law from other countries to suit her own purposes. This is a person that has argued in favor of constitutional rights for prostitution and polygamy. She's attacked the Boys & Girls Club as organizations that perpetuate stereotyped sex roles. She has proposed getting rid of Mother's Day and Father's Day and replacing them with parent's day. She also proposed getting rid of single sex prisons, arguing that men shouldn't be separated from women in prison only to have to learn to work with them as equals when returning to society. I still can't believe the senate confirmed the nomination of this left-wing lunatic by a 96-3 vote.

    Segregation should not have been allowed to continue, but we live in different times now. The mayor of Selma, Alabama is a black man named James Perkins. To suggest that the south would resegregate if states were given more freedom is absurd.
    If the south wanted to bring back segragation, do you think it should be allowed to do so?

    All of the above are unconstitutional. No state can pass a law that infringes on the constitution.
    Why is banning interracial marriages unconstitutional? Do you want to point me to the part of the Constitution that explicitly states that marriage has to be allowed between two individuals irrespective of race?

    You think the majority of people in any state in the USA want slavery or segregation? I'm not sure what your point is.
    His point is that Im sure a majority of Americans would like Christianity to be assimilated into US politics and legislation. Even if we took a vote and 75% of the people wanted Christianity to become the official religion, the checks and balances of the US should not allow that to happen.

    Regardless of public opinion (on certain issues) the government should remain consistant with the constitution.

    That's fine and good, but if their contention is sincerely for the rights, then they should switch to the term "civil union," and both sides could be happy.
    So it would be equal to marriage but, seperate from it??? Is that what you have in mind Satori?

    Sounds very constitutional....

    Yeah, Scalia lambasted her for referencing other countries when she voted against the death penalty for murderers under 18.

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg was appointed by Bill Clinton.
    Prior to that, she was general counsel for the socialist ACLU, before Carter appointed her to one of the courts of appeal.

    I can't either.

    You can guarantee the democrats are not going to be that generous with any of Bush's appointees.

    It doesn't have to be specific. For starters, how about the same amendment that allows a womans right to chose.....

    Also try the 14th amendment.

    Now, you don't honestly think a state could ban interracial marriages....do you?

    If it can ban evolution, then why not?

    And the ACLU is not socialist; it doesn't have any views on economic policies. It's only concerned about human rights.

    Except that they would have all the rights they want and would only be losing on the terminology. Comparing that to race segregation is GROSS misrepresentation. I'm actually rather disappointed in you for that.

    Perhaps the Christian fundies think that if they stop teaching evolution it will stop occurring, and they'll be happy knowing that their holy book was correct.

    Now we only have to get them to admit that the earth is more than 6,000 years old and that men have the same amount of ribs as women.

    Its the same thing. People are people, trying to divide and isolate them because of ancient religious beliefs is wrong and unAmerican!!

    Why do republicans care so much what thier relationship is called??

    W.o.w. Not being able to sit a lunch counters, and having separate bathroom facilities, water fountains, and schools is now the equivalent to not using a word, but maintaining all of the rights and privileges associated with that word. I'm sorry, but there is just NO WAY that those are comparable. Please tell me you're arguing for the sake of argument, because, if you actually believe that policing language so as not to offend a large swath of the population is the same as racial oppression, you will have lost a boatload of my respect.

    The Republicans are a political party, darling. They have no stance on what the relationship is called. However, there is this novel group of people called "Americans," the majority of whom feel uncomfortable about certain terminology for such a relationship.

    As a conservative, I believe that "Marriage" is a license to procreate. Homo's can't do that, thus, the name must be changed. Palimony is in use today, so we'll call it sodomony..........hows that?

    Soooo, all sodomonied people will get the same bennies as matrimonied people.
