  1. All sound and fury, signifying nothing.

    They have precisely no power to do anything of the sort, and are just blowing their dog whistle of hate to the easily boggled simpletons who can be coerced into voting against their own interest by focusing on fallacious nonsense about “guns, gays and abortions”.

    This is my favorite nonsense news of the week. Like what? If they don’t agree we’ll just disappear? They won’t marry someone of the same sex? They’ll walk around with their fingers in their ears going “lalalalalalalalalala”?

    It’s like saying I don’t believe in cars. Or the Chinese. Knock yourself out dimwit. As if we didn’t think you were big enough fools already, you come together to say this? lolololo

    Excellent; I look forward to seeing them all incarcerated as a result of any such illegal and anti-democratic actions.

  4. Lawyers are rubbing their hands together with glee, dreams of litigation dancing in their heads. Go ahead you silly bigots, deny goods and services, or whatever other threat you want to use and stomp your little feet. Wail to the Heavens that you’re being persecuted because you can’t practice your bigotry or force others to adopt your dogma (which always get run over by Karma in the end anyway). Beat your wizened chests and shed fake tears from your rheumy eyes. Thank the gods/esses that your kind are dwindling – just like the neanderthals (and my sincerest apologies to the neanderthals). Now, maybe we can get society back on track and start to improve the lot of all humankind.

    It always amazes me that ‘Natural Moral Law’ so conveniently manages to coincide with those things that these Christian lunatics believe.

    Great. The US legal system is notoriously money-hungry, and the payoffs aren’t too shabby either.

    This would seriously impoverish the Religious Right in a way nothing else ever could :-)

    1. The U.S. legal system also brought us the ACLU that uses lawyers to fight for our civil rights. BTW, the ACLU lawyers were part of the legal team that brought down Proposition 8. I’m sure you intended to say that lawyers eager to protect our civil rights will bring down our detractors and your “money-hungry” comment was just a bit of over-zealous hyperbole.

        What are you talking about? The ACLU may well fund bringing the cases against those that defy a strikedown of DOMA, but who funds the defence or the inevitable pay-offs when the ACLU-funded plantiffs win?

  7. I have an idea, why don’t we ignore them back? I can live in obscurity, but apparently these people have a huge need for public attention. So, let’s just ignore them.

  8. I’m a bit puzzled as to how they intend to “defy” any ruling in favour of same sex marriage. After one of the vigils outside the HOL I was told by some god bothering bigot “I don’t recognise it as real marriage” to which I responded “that’s fine, mate. I don’t recognise your god as real”. So they don’t think it’s marriage – I don’t care. The law does and that’s all that counts. How arrogant that they presume I should require approval from their silly superstition.

  9. Sounds almost like they’re under the paranoid delusion that the Supreme Court will somehow force private religious organizations to have same-sex marriages. The separation of church and state makes civil marriage a secular matter, and private religious organizations are free to have their own canons. The Southern Baptist Convention didn’t necessarily shrink despite becoming a social pariah in the rest of the country over its belief in slavery, and then over segregation. Sometimes you just can’t cure stupid – but you can make things just for the rest of us.

  10. Well I hope they enjoy their jail time.
