here you go: Virginia’s gay marriage ban ruled unconstitutional: A perfect record for equality post-Windsor.

Drama queen?
Didn't you compare a law to reaffirm the constitutionally protected right to the free exercise of religion to Jim Crow Laws?

what's interesting is that what they are proposing is *exactly* what INDY has said anti-gay discrimination can't compare to: Jim Crow.
Yes you did.

Drama queen? Let me just take a few quotes from the article about Virginia:

Quote:
The older generation's fears and prejudices have given way, and today's young people realize that if someone loves someone they have a right to marry. I support the freedom to marry for all. That's what Loving, and loving, are all about.” — Mildred Loving, "Loving for All"
"Loving for all." For all? If we can't discriminate in marriage because of race. If we can't discriminate in marriage because of sex. How can we discriminate on the basis of number? How is it constitutional to draw the line there?

Quote:
The judge opened her opinion with the quote, above, from Mildred Loving, the plaintiff in the 1967 challenge to Virginia’s ban on interracial marriage.
The 14th amendment was written specifically to address discrimination against ex-slaves. Where in the Loving Decision did it say, "this ruling applies to same-sex marriages also"?

Quote:
She thus joined a unanimous and ever-expanding collection of federal judges who have chosen to answer the question left up in the air by the Supreme Court last Spring
Which all but admits these judges are acting outside the law and unconstitutionally. If pointing out that a judicial oligarchy and an imperial president make these scary times for republicanism and the rule of law makes me over dramatic, so be it.

You really have no idea how the three branches of government work, do you.

Currently or as set forth in the Constitution with enumerated powers?

Once again you're trying to have it both ways, and why no one can take your constitution beating seriously. Here you try and say that the 14th amendment only applies to the context of the time, but you absolutely refuse to listen to anyone who says consider the context when speaking about the 2nd amendment.

So which one is it?

What was the second amendment SPECIFICALLY written to address and how has that been taken and run with? Talk about hypocrisy.

So Debo Adegbile was blocked by the Senate for a position in the JD's Civil Rights division because Republicans didn't like that he had a history of fighting for civil rights.

I don't think that's the reason, is it?

Yes, that's exactly what it is. I normally hate Slate, but this is an excellent breakdown of what we're talking about:

Debo Adegbile: Senate blocks Obama’s pick to head the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.

That Wall Street Journal article was written by Pat fucking Toomey. Give me a break.

Don't the democrats control the senate? Didn't some Democrats vote no as well? What was the position of police groups regarding the nominee?

Finally, why is this president attempting to pack the DOJ with leftist radicals?

Seven. All white. All of whom should be fucking embarrassed.

The police groups? I assume they erroneously viewed it as "us vs. them," but I don't actually know.

I don't ever trust your opinion on what a leftist radical is, so I won't dignify your last question with a response.
