I need help. Their continual insults are wearing me down and I feel like responding to insults with insults. I know that I shouldn't, but I need strength from God just to endure. I feel like ignorance is winning out over truth because the army of the ignorant is so large.
"Many Americans believe that marriage is the union of a man and a woman, and most Americans live in states where that is the law today," said Judge Michael Boudin, appointed to the bench in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush. "One virtue of federalism is that it permits this diversity of governance based on local choice, but this applies as well to the states that have chosen to legalize same-sex marriage. Under current Supreme Court authority, Congress' denial of federal benefits to same-sex couples lawfully married in Massachusetts has not been adequately supported by any permissible federal interest."
Chief Judge Sandra Lynch, a Clinton nominee, and Judge Juan Torruella, a Reagan nominee, joined in the opinion.
So glad to see you're back, Chrys!
You make this place feel more like family -
with everyone being their own unique selves, with their good or sometimes aggravating ways - but always special and always belonging here!
chrysostom I am publicly apologizing to you. I have been excessively rude and harsh to you recently and you are someone I have always respected. I hope you will accept my apology. We can agree to disagree, and that's OK. I realize when reading back through your posts that you are sincere in both thought and effort.
