The Declaration of Independence states:

" We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness..."."

I believe in gay rights and I’m happy that Prop. 8 was overturned, since it is no ones business what happens in a couple’s bedroom.

I feel relieved. But a small victory. The climate is so....scary. There a big movement now to ban contraceptives. There was ban on this (even for married people) as late as the 1950's. Are we going back in time?

Yes, and there are so many more steps to go!

I didn't know there was ever a ban! Was it only for Catholics?

I need to express my feelings on this conraceptive thing in another post.

No legally. No one could get contraceptives, unless through a doctor. The US was not quite like Ireland, which is a theocracy. Not everyone is a Catholic, but legal, civil law was Catholic law. No divorce allowed. No contraceptives allowed. Of course no abortion. There is no national religion in our form of government, but in the 1940's, 50's and before nobody could have an abortion. No contraceptives were sold on the counter. The sexual revolution started in the 1960s. Margaret Sanger started planned parenthood. Eventually in the early 70's abortion became legal.

More important on the legal level is the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment of the constitution. ""no state shall ... deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." Means that there is no vote you can have in your state that can deny any group equal protection of the laws. Your rights are not subject to a vote or they wouldn't be rights. Truth of the matter is I think government really should stay out of the entire marriage business and only recognize the legal contract as far as sharing property and what that entails.
I'm an ordained minister in the ULC and expect to be asked to marry a few couples down the road.

Then why is there this constant uproar by the peanut gallery?!

I fully agree with you on government staying the hell out of a married couples business unless it pertains to sharing the monetary stuff.

I didn't know that! That's awesome!
