@TheChief The founding fathers also didn't want the poor or women voting. Oh, and they wanted to maim gays too, can't believe I forgot about that.

A legal union between contesting adults. Again, you can't say straight couples deserve certain privileges that gays don't just because you're bigoted toward the latter.

It kinda does, it's worth recognizing that nearly every gay marriage argument that isn't blatantly homophobic is just rationalization of why those icky gays don't deserve rights.

"Mom, all the other kids are murdring kittens!!!". I always find it cute, in a sad sort of way, when patriots try to deflect any criticism of their nation by flinging it at other nations. It isn't compelling and just shows how stupid and counterproductive patriotism and nationalism are. You're literally apologizing for war crimes right now, lol.

Nice baseless claim. These violations were more often than not made to protect the interests of the political or economic elites, which is the people the founders wanted to protect in the first place. I believe the powerful will ignore the constitution when it suites them, that the original intent of it was to protect the interests of the wealthy and powerful, and that it has often failed to protect people's freedoms when said freedoms are unpopular. I'm saying I don't worship it or the founding fathers. Regardless, the supreme court's decision was constitutional, the 14th amendment is a thing, so I'm not even advocating ignoring it to protect people, in regards to gay marriage. At most I'm saying the reason I have this basic civil right now is because gays rights aren't wildly unpopular.

I never said he was unique, I said he wants to commit war crimes.

No, that's what a corrupt puppet show is. Democracy is when people actually have a choice and say in their government, not when elites have Infinitely more influence on policy than the average citizen and when nearly every politician is bought and paid for. The latter is far closer to what the founding fathers wanted than it is to democracy and it's also what we have now. If you think we've really given people power, then you must not be paying attention.
