    What are you talking about “restricting freedom?” This decision broadened freedom for a large number of people. Unless your definition of freedom is sneering at the fact other people don’t have the same rights as you, this should not affect your freedom at all.

      If you are talking about DOMA, I agree with court because you cant say gay couples dont have same benefit rights as straight couples. I side with the court on that, and never say the opposite in the column, and you know that.

      The column is talking about all our 10th Amendment rights gay and straight being absconded with by the Federal Gov. If you think the government cares about gays, you are wrong. The government does not care about the people gay or straight except taking our rights in every way from us and making all our rights government provided.

      Gay marriage should be a state-by-state issue since marriage is nowhere to be found in the Constitution. And for a reason, it’s left to the states and the individual people of every individual state to decide the issue. The Federal Government has no Constitutional authority to step over state’s rights if something is not in the 17 Enumerated Powers.

      That belongs to us the people. The government is already taking away religious and speech freedom, what’s to say it wont try to mandate marriages if it is given power to define marriage. Government has no place in marriage gay or straight.

      If you think government should get involved, look out, it will move beyond gay and straight marriage and next Islam will use gays and Heterosexual marriage issues to push Sharia Law into our Constitution, where Islam has no place, because Islam only adheres to Sharia as do all Islamic marriages, and Sharia demands honor slaughters if the wife does not obey.

      Worse, Sharia Law dictates all gays must be executed and Gays are being tortured and executed all over the Middle East and Europe because Islam commands their deaths.

      I believe in Civil Rights to gays, but we better be careful in allowing the Federal Government to get involved in defining things it has no business doing. Look what DOMA did: It said gays can’t will their benefits to each other. I think that’s wrong. SCOTUS was right to smack down that Fed Gov law.

      But SCOTUS is right to send Prop 8 back to CA and let CA court decide, not Fed Court. marriage belongs in the individual states and no government should get into the private lives of the people

      Do you really think we have as much freedom as the Founders signed into the Bill of Rights? Really? You haven’t seen the erosion of the Bill of Rights? I see Americans losing freedom in every way and its because we gave the government too much power it does not have in the Constitution

        My day to day life has not changed even slightly, and the quality of my life has improved. I also think that the quality of people’s lives in CA will improve as well.

          I’m glad your day-to-day life has improved. It has not for many who are finding themselves extremely regulated by Fed Gov reaching into states. I Want Americans to have the entire Bill of Rights, and not see it eroded as I see it being eroded by confiscating guns, excessive regulations on business, now getting worse with an Amnesty Bill that demand fines for any biz that hires American citizens–that’s literally in the Bill. Hire illegal, no fines, hire Americans, you are fined.

          That’s not an improvement in the quality of any American’s life. Its the destruction thereof. And there will be more to come, because the Fed Gov has been allowed too much power since 1933 and then again with LBJ and now Obama.

          You obviously find big government, expansive unconstitutional government works for you. I find it takes from every citizen and that is not liberty for anyone

    You understand that you are not being ordered to enter into a gay marriage, right?

    1. Lisa Richards

      That’s not what this column is about, it’s saying that if Federal Government is allowed to define our marriages and personal lives, it will attempt to place further restrictions on the people—as it has done for a century via progressives. We are not considering the future and what an overreaching government can do. Look what it has done over the past 100 years. This is about losing our 10th Amendment rights and keeping Fed Gov out of our State’s Rights, out of our personal lives and not defining that

      Thank you for your input. Much appreciated.
