Sounds like something Rick Santorum would attempt.

I'm not sure they would need to be all that, but at the very least it needs to be someone who is vocal about the fact that they don't want government involved in telling people what to do with their own bodies and their own personal relationships.

And there are some Republicans like that...they are unfortunately drowned out by Tea Party grandstanders who seemingly want nothing more than to drag the entire party down. One would almost think these Tea Party extremists are Democrat plants who are there to only sabotage the Republican party as a whole, because that's basically all they're doing.

"Justice has often been forged from fires of indignities and prejudices suffered," wrote Judge Wright Allen. Invoking the opening passage of the US Constitution, she continued, "Our triumphs that celebrate the freedom of choice are hallowed. We have arrived upon another moment in history when We the People becomes more inclusive, and our freedom more perfect."

Cruz is positioning himself as the ultimate tea party guy. Where is Jeb on gay marriage this week?

I'm sure it depends on who his audience is at the moment.

Of course, this isn't a phenomena exclusive only to Jeb or any other Republican or Democratic candidate for president.

In yet another example of a judge being totally ignorant to the supreme law of the land, U.S. District Court Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen wrongly attributed the line “all men are created equal” to the Constitution when it in fact appears in the Declaration of Independence.

“Our Constitution declares that ‘all men’ are created equal,’” she wrote in the ruling. “Surely this means all of us.”

Judge Arenda was referring to the preamble of the Declaration of Independence, which states that:

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.

So in essence, a federal judge who confuses the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence is ruling on the constitutionality of laws and treaties of the United States.

Although there is no excuse for a judge to not know the origins of that phrase, it doesn't change the fact that this country was founded on that principle.

Still, she and every other judge should know that.

I knew you were a pretty intolerant person to begin with, but supporting a bill that would effectively throw gay people into the Jim Crow era?

Why don't you take that boat you offered to the Obamas and take it back to the 1800s? Your disgusting excuse for "morals" will be more welcome there.

She didn't know the origin but she could help you with the idea.

"While ever vigilant for the wisdom that can come from the voices of our voting public, our courts have never long tolerated the perpetuation of laws rooted in unlawful prejudice. One of the judiciary's noblest endeavors is to scrutinize law that emerge from such roots."

Sounds like queer talk to me. Get out of my store.
