Governor “Butch” Otter of the great state of Idaho is determined to protect the citizens of this state agains the horde of Gays and Lesbians seeking to enter this domain and pollute the minds of its inhabitants with weird ideas about who can or should be allowed to marry. I do understand that in Idaho a potato is not allowed to marry with another potato. I do understand that in the state of Idaho dogs who wish to do “it,” must be of different sexes. Anyway, Butch and his Attorney General want the Supreme Court to respond to the question: “whether the federal constitution prohibits a stare from maintaining the traditional understanding and definition of marriage as between a man and a woman.” How about answering the following questions?
1. Did the Founding Fathers believe that a white person had the right to keep a black skinned person as a slave?
2. Did they believe that only males could vote?
3. Did they believe that Jews and Catholic could vote? (many states in the 1790s did not allow these people to vote)
And, so on and so on. How about accepting that time changes our views on what is or not legal? Our Founding Fathers did not know about automobiles and speed limits, therefore?
