Voting on civil rights is vile, it should never come to this. Do people honestly believe that if other civil rights issues, women’s suffrage or desegregation, had been left to a public vote, they would have passed? Those who oppose marriage equality have no skin in the game, nothing to win and nothing to lose, nothing but a demand that others comply with their beliefs. The legislature needs to correct those who would chest-thump, wave their little flags and chant USA USA USA while wiping their backsides all over the Constitution.
It’s truly obscene that ANY minority’s rights are dependent on the approval of the majority.
In Ireland it’s also being claimed that a referendum is required to introduce marriage equality.
It is shameful and abhorrent that our rights are dependent on the mood of the larger population.
Thankfully, a referendum won’t be required in the UK. A rarity anyway.
There is an upside to the referendum in Maine and that is if it goes in our favour at the voting booth which would diminish the m.o. and power of hate groups such as NOM, the primary instigators and funders of hate in regard to marriage equality. If Maine gets marriage equality back, NOM et al might as well wage war against the state, wasting millions of dollars in the process. As more states progress to marriage equality, it’s going to force NOM and it’s hate affiliates to dig deeper into their coffers. Its supporters will eventually realize they’re wasting their money on a useless cause.
It is highly likely though that Maine will follow its neighbours in New York, New Hampshire,Vermont and Massachusetts in voting for equality. The North east of the US is largely Democratic and even the Catholics tend to be more liberal than the rest of the US.
“In Ireland it’s also being claimed that a referendum is required to introduce marriage equality. ”
This has been explained to you multiple times as to why (rightly or wrongly) it is the case, but you still persist with the histrionic statements. Due process and the fundamental elements of Ireland’s democratic system eludes you on many levels, doesn’t it?
Well said! Fortunately, governor Andrew Cuomo in New York, was politically brilliant in passing marriage equality in New York State. On the ither hand, governor Chris Christie of New Jeresey is being a coward askIng for a public vote.
This is a state action to establish marriage equality, not a national effort (where a referendum wouldn’t even be possible) At the state level securing rights through a public vote is a perfectly valid thing to do; in fact, before the 19th Amendment was passed, women got the right to vote in many states through referendums.
Well, the 14th amendment could well be the one to make marriage equality happen at the federal level if the Supreme Court takes the case in which the rights of the minority must be guaranteed and protected rather then subject them to the whims or beliefs of some in what is nothing more than mob rule on this one issue alone. I’m not so sure this is a good thing if it goes awry which would justify the bigotry of our opponents.
Well, yeah; I’d like the Supreme Court to decide this once and for all, unfortunately that’s probably years away at this point. And I do think it’s ridiculous that in my state (California) that our constitution can be changed by a simple majority vote. I never thought about it much until Prop 8, but I’d hate to think what our country would be like if the Federal constitution could be amended like that.
In response from a “USian” in Georgia, a few issues:
these states have made state-constitutional amendments (and repeals) incumbent upon referenda. That’s why it is particularly difficult to get any repeal effort started against Prop 8 (a constitutional amendment) in California, which would take a lot of money and personality before enough signatures are signed and enough good will is built up before a November vote. The cheaper way (I contend, not the more-moral way) is through the federal courts, which will be derided to no end as “judicial activism” by the likes of Newt.
also, I’m supportive of the Maine referendum as perhaps the most decisive model for not only legalizing same-sex marriage, but also ramming a knife into the political heart of anti-gay activism by saying “will of the people, mother****ers!”
Not even legislatures passing equality laws are good enough for anti-gay activists. Only referenda can justify their bigotry. But what if they go the wrong way, against them?
This fight is not over until we get marriage equality. So, those who oppose marriage equality can expect us to come back time and again.
Meanwhile, look at this video now appearing in the UK against same-sex marriage. Disgusting!
Nice catch. Well done. And I wonder, am I the only one who took one look at that Andrea Williams person and started laughing?
Vaksky, no, I roared. She looks like a freak. I don’t think they’ll get far with this one, I think most Brits will look at it in amusement even though it’s disgusting and offencive. I’d like to see videos countering it and putting them on the spot.
How brain dead do you have to be as citizens who should all want to live in peace and harmony, to allow a bigoted individual or a handful of bigoted thugs wether politicians are hate religions, ruin the character and peace and humanity of you towns, you get the bigoted officials out and you arrest the hate groups and clans for inciting violence and hate crimes against the citizens and their families puiting all citzens and their peace and well being in a national security threat on local levels, the spinless bigots are all heterosexual who have horrific track records against masses of people including womens rights, so when you allow them to discriminate against one person of color, they also are bothering the lgbt people and they are also discriminating against all colors of women and their rights have you idiots forgot that minorities are still being discrimiated against in business and corps pay scales as well, women are in lawsuits now for being unfair paid as men
How insane can you be about racism , you dont even elect a bigoted hippocrite who is a gay person who does not have a track record for keeping the human rights and civil rights fairness stand , these types of people are not good for gay families because they are gay if they do not sign human rights legislations and inact fair policies for the nations we have a perfect example of some bad gay people, who are in positions, this sheriff labaeu, was caught threatening a young man he was sexually seeing as a so called boyfriend and his immigrations status, and he did, the boy would not have risked his status to tell on the man and lile about it, this bad sheriff, who was also a closeted gay republican, did not want any one to no he was a gay republican, and was running as a chairman to one of the bigest racest politiians who is running for president who have told the gay community of his hatred and bigotry for thier famiies, this type of wicked president would not put saftey measures in
If you have a wicked racest president, then when your colored and immigrant and lgbt children is violated and you, they do not try and come to your defense and put in saftey measures like good women and and men who should be familiey people and good mothers and fathers, they instead try and make things worse, not one of the republicans biggots excetp fred karger even expressed empathy for the you children who where bullied and some commited suiced because of racism harrasment, , does this sound like the kind of president to be proud of , does this sound like a real lovingg father and mother who should just simply love their chidren and wish them and other childfen happy safe futures, instead not carring for all others of different colors an genders and catering only to their selffish wicked, pioused family, that all racist and bigots do, they are trouble waiting to happen in large doses, they get in office and neglect most of society, and abuse their titles like now the bigots
Having spent many summers there, this is right-wing redneck country basically, so I can’t see this happening.
Just keep bringing the issue back and back and back! Never give up, never give into the stench of religion and conservatism. The great curse on our planet- Christianity!
It is good to see their are more and more and more civilied people standing up, for human rights, Bigots has to be stopped in every sector, if you trace who bigots and racists are, you will find they are always linked and tied into other corrupt atrocities, like , sex crimes, and murder, everytime, like these bad religions pedephilia, but yet they are hate mongers, the bigoted republicans you find in sex crimes with underage boys and girls like philip hinkle and senator craig an ted haggard, all hatemongering men for human gods, all affiliated with pedehilia and sexual assault, another hate filled senator in the day time republican , they caught with a stash of hgh potent drugs and under age girls in sex trafficking like hiedi flies, he was a bigot, and racist yet they all are doing evil themselves while bothering innocent peaceful famiies, this is why you cannot allow racist and bigots to get away with hate crimes and harrasment , they are abusers in more ways than one,
Listen and listen carefully. There is no hate crime committed from one gay person to the other unless is is a racial presentations of white or colors against oposite colors, like in hetersexual uncivilized, situ;ations, Those gay women where either reacting to a gay or bisexexual man , probabley bisxual, who was making racist or derrogotory harrassments of sexual are racial epitats , at the girsl and women, Men has been bothering women of both heterosexual and gay genders in an infested way worse than ever in the last ten years , they have been arresting men stalkers as well, your average couple especially women who are gay are not going to be walking down the street trying to hurt are harm another gay person like them, unless its color racism, If the man was verbally harrassing the women and bumped into them to harrass them which is most likely what happened, the girls where the victums of harrassment and should have defended themselves, against the harrasser,
If the lesbian women , just walked up to a gay may who accidently bumped into them and did not say anything back to them in a harrassing or abusive way at the women, and the women started hitting him because he accidently bumped into them , then the man who accidently bumped into them is the victume of cruel and unempathetic bitches, who are not kind an understanding to the fact that people accidently nuge , are fall into and onto people, they trip as well, the right thing to say is we are sorry can we help you pick yourself up and your things and if the man said sorry ladies and escuse me after he bumped them the thing to do was courtesy both ways an say its okay, im glad you are okay we are too. have a nice day sir, and have a nice day women thanks for understanding, you must find out wich happened there is no hate crime between gays except for color barriers hate crimes, they are all gay, the crime is assault and battery an added hate crime if its racial or gender differences
The gay lgbt pflaag meeting or vital and gay ptos They need to be teaching the gay families and women and children what to look for in signs of danger, and areas such as hetersexual parties, and gatherings without other protectors in other hetersexual gatherings, in other words do not let hetersexual lead you into isolation with other hetersexual if you are a gay boy or girl or adult without protections an family with you, many gay boys have been murdered by false hetersexual freinds pretending to be freinds of theirs and leading them into traps, many bodies where found in pureto rico, and others right hear in thei state , like the Matherw sheppard Story, thats true, hetersexual are dangersous especially the men and boys, they rape and kill their own wives and children as well, you as ;a gay person have no business at a hetersexual bar, nor hetersexual party, you have your own gay bars, that are safe for you, hetersexual boys and men, try and have violent rape sexual incounters
I personally was in the same case , as some abused gay women and men, I thought i knew the hetersexual woman and did not, she said she loved me, i was niave, and should have been dating a gay women , later she told me that some of her hetersexual men freinds was trying to get her to lure me into a hotel room and have them run a gang bang , train on me in rape, she told me not to come, her exhusband beat her up for telling me the truth about what they where up to, and these people where bad pastors of churches and senators republican racist she said, some i knew of, but didnt know they where all connoected to each other that way, This is a
All states and countries must have a democratic people govenment, of human rights platforms and liberty for the people, you must vote for a people that has a track record of helping all colors and genders families and domestic programs, and that is the democratic society, Republicans are just for themselves and rich people and have actually voice it on national tv in arrogance and unconcerned, several of the republican candidates has already told the nation that they where racist and bigots an will treat all minorities unfair if elected and try and overturn all the good the democrats has done, for the nation in the name of human rights, the republican candidates got caught on tv and by shela jackson representive saying they do not care about the poor and middle class people , it was caught on tape, by the same bigoted power hungry republicans who wants to be your president , but wants to violate your rights of your families and then turn his back on your minority districts, and imigrat
When you have a party that is full of bigotry and racism like the Republican party and violates human rights and constitutional rights, you have a dangerous party that have and will hurt all aspects of society, and will not ever try ot move the nation forward in a positive directions of goodwill measures for all, but back into a digressed shamefull ihumane society of abusers, as bigots leading to other atrocities for women and minorites, that they already have a history abusing an violating, pay attention, as a democratic platform of human rights, they nations must go forward in goodwill measures that the republicans do not care about, except the few standing up against
