Not fair to say that. Virginia would still go red every time if it didn't have the cancerous growth of Washington DC spreading its tentacles all over the northern part of our poor state. Imagine if DC was next to YOUR state. :-(
I am quite familiar with politics in sw Virginia since I live in the Tri-Cities. The democrips hold too many seats.
Try living in Oregon, where most of the population are California imports.
No. The “Fundamental Transformation” isn’t complete yet. You’ll know when they’re done when you’re breaking your back in a rise paddy or rotting in a gulag.
We’re on the edge of economic, political, and social disaster. This is yet another sign.
It was not considered discrimination that one not be permitted to marry a sibling or, in most cases, even a first cousin (of the opposite sex).
So why is a restriction on a Biblically and biologically unsound union considered discrimination?
They remain free to marry, just not under conditions imposed on all. Because those conditions were imposed on all, there is no discrimination, only their desire to act in opposition to the conditions.
As for the whomever they love part, what if that is a pet, a child, a sibling? What kettle of worms do they open with this nonsense? Those ruling this way are sick, twisted, or patently insane.
How can this be a denial of equal protection?
By the way, the erroneous reasoning by judges on equal protection grounds would and does apply to any activity licensed by the state.
If one prefers to cut hair, the state should not deny cosmetology licenses to those who only have skills to repair automobiles.
The state cannot restrict persons who prefer driving on sidewalks to driving only on paved highways.
The state cannot forbid deer hunting licenses to those who prefer to hunt possums.
And as you point out, homosexuals are in fact NOT treated distinctly from heterosexuals. Homosexuals have identical treatment under the law. The homosexual is forbidden from using his cosmetology license to practice psychiatry and surgery, the homosexual is forbidden from using his squirrel hunting license to hunt muskrats, the homosexual is forbidden to use his driver's license to drive on sidewalks, and the homosexual is forbidden from using a marriage license to marry somebody of the same sex. It is in fact, irrelevant that the license applicant is heterosexual or homosexual.
And, also by the way, the state has NO tests on love when issuing marriage licenses. Love is not a requirement, and it is not tested..... And this is rightly so, for I love my mother, father, daughter, son, neighbor, dog, preacher, teacher, neighbor, and married friend.
And.... Homosexuals have the same contract rights as anybody else. Timmy and Tommy and Tony and Tammy Too can contract to love, cherish, fornicate, and share bank accounts as they desire.
These jduges are idiots as well as being un-American.
The plaintiffs in this case have the exact same rights to marry that I do. They can marry one person of the opposite sex that will have them.
They cannot marry their toaster, or their goat, or their mother nor another man. Same limitations I have.
