We are swiftly arriving at the point where most Americans recognize right from wrong and see -- with clarity gained through experience or thoughtful reconsideration -- the fiction that love could somehow be ruinous to society.

History won't, but I don't now.

Care2 won't let me say how I feel about the sight of Ted Cruz.

Politicians only do he right thing when it translates to votes, plain and simple. When they spout their vicious lies and make outlandish claims and people continue to vote for them they consider it a sign that their juvenile, ignorant behavior Is acceptable.

Ted Cruz will use history in his argumentation whenever and however it suits him, and has absolutely no qualms about rewriting it to fit his views. And why should he be bothered by history not viewing marriage quality holdouts favorably, or him for that matter? He'll just adapt it again to suit his needs.

"To that end, I give you Republican Texas senator Ted Cruz, one of the few high-profile politicians to protest the Supreme Courtís decision to stand down."

Sorry, I won't take him. You have to keep him. Apart from that though, wonderful article and perfectly true. You'd think politicians would learn quicker than most something as simple as what has happened here - when polls begin showing more 2/3's of the populace FAVOR something, it is time for politicians, if they weren't brave enough to get out front, to at least then get on the train. Some are that smart. Cruz isn't. Which is one reason I'd love him to be the Republican nominee in 2016 - I'm not sure he could even win Texas and am sure he won't win much else.

You have to keep in mind that many Americans believe that marriage is between one man and one woman either because it is their firm religious belief and/or because they believe the purpose of marriage between a man and a woman is to procreate. There's a reason why some people are not on board with same sex marriage. It doesn't make them bad people. It's a core belief of many people. Change takes time.

When Obama was campaigning back in 2007 and 2008 he stated publicly that he believed marriage was between one man and one woman. Same with Hillary. Politicians switch sides if it will help them win an election as we've witnessed with these two political machines. Today, they promote same sex marriage.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. I agree, too, that history will not look well on them......thankfully. The hatemongering that goes with this issue has been rabid and ugly.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Have no problem with people believing that marriage is between one man and one woman. For purposes of procreation, only? Have trouble with that, having been raised in the RCC, and witnessing way too many people's lives negatively impacted by the official stance against birth control. Have a major problem with said people forcing their beliefs on others, especially when they seek to enshrine their beliefs in the Law of the Land. No one is forced to marry a same-sex partner, and neither is anyone forced to use contraceptives against his/her will. But no one, NO ONE has a right to foist their beliefs on other people who think differently. Proscribing same-sex marriage, or eliminating reproductive freedom is a different breed of cat, entirely. How would others feel if the situation was reversed? Food for thought...
