Checks and Balances – LGBT Rights

I like this for the simple fact the judge understands his roll.

“You – you’ve led me right into a question I was going to ask. The California Supreme Court decides what the law is. That’s what we decide, right? We don’t prescribe law for the future. We – we decide what the law is. I’m curious, when — when did — when did it become unconstitutional to exclude homosexual couples from marriage? 1791? 1868, when the Fourteenth Amendment was adopted?” – Justice Antonin Scalia

All men, regardless of race (specfic language) are protected (certain rights) by Our Constitution and Her Amendments. Women (specific language) are protected (certain right) by Our Constitution and Her Amendments. There is no specific language protecting rights based on a person’s sexuality.

To be clear, I happen to believe in equality.
