Current Conservative Presidential Darling Pretty Indifferent On Same Sex Marriage Ruling

Marco Rubio....pro-intervention and nation building, pro-amnesty, but indifferent to SSM ruling.

“While I disagree with this decision, we live in a republic and must abide by the law. As we look ahead, it must be a priority of the next president to nominate judges and justices committed to applying the Constitution as written and originally understood…

“I firmly believe the question of same sex marriage is a question of the definition of an institution, not the dignity of a human being. Every American has the right to pursue happiness as they see fit. Not every American has to agree on every issue, but all of us do have to share our country. A large number of Americans will continue to believe in traditional marriage, and a large number of Americans will be pleased with the Court’s decision today. In the years ahead, it is my hope that each side will respect the dignity of the other.”

Allah took exception to my characterization of Rubio as "indifferent" but had the decision gone the other way, what would he have said differently? "While I'm thankful for today's ruling and understand the passions on both sides, we live in a republic....blah....blah...respect the decision....blah...blah...respect each other...blah....blah...conservative judges."

Why so tepid Marco? Oh, right....donors.

Oh and while we do live in a republic (theoretically) it's important who and how laws are made. If judges do it, it's not a republic. Marco should probably think on that for a bit.

This is your guy GOP? Swell.

Ted Cruz has a fundraising idea, I mean, a response....let Congress vote on keeping Supreme Court judges every 8 years. Odds of passing that amendment to the Constitution? Yeah.

Anyone selling a "solution" to this that requires an amendment is simply blowing smoke up your ass.

So what is the solution? I have some ideas and will have a post on Monday about it.

In the meantime the short answer is....stop protecting people from the big government they support. Too many people who have spent years and decades advocating for bigger and bigger government have to be made to enjoy it as much as we have been.

For me it starts with the Catholic Church. They and any other church that discriminates against gay couples will find up being sued and forced to perform ceremonies or will lose their tax status.

My reaction: Oh well.

US bishops have spent decades advocating liberal big government programs (ObamaCare, as long as they are exempted and amnesty spring to mind) all while enjoying an exemption from its effects or sharing in the burden of the costs via their tax exemption.

Well they are going to get a taste of what they've been building and they aren't going to like it one bit.

While I will lament to loss of an important American value, it won't be the first progressives have killed. But I will laugh as they and others like them are shocked that the government they are so happy to sic on others turns on them.

I keep being told there isn't a critical mass of people who support big government. Fair enough. So now it's time to create one. No more exemptions and safe harbors from which people safely sell me and my values down the rive to protect theirs.

Big government is the best salesman for small government. It's time we let it loose on it's supporters.

Added: In the interest of interfaith comity I should note I'm looking forward to synagogues and mosques being taxed as well.

90-95% of your congregants vote for Democrats? Well, then I'm sure you'll be happy to be subject to even more of what they impose on the rest of us.
