    New York to Become the Sixth State to Legalize Gay Marriage


    Not to point this at anyone specific but are we to really Banner headline this with every state..? I can see it now "ARK. 26TH STATE TO LEGALIZE GAY MARRIAGE" the following week, "MISSISSIPPI, AND THREE OTHERS TO LEGALIZE GAY MARRIAGE"

    Meanwhile Rome burns.

    And because the Catholic Church doesn't recognize 2nd marriages, should the state also refuse to recognize them?

    How 'bout we just let Fred Phelps and his church decide who gets to marry whom?

    Here is an interesting thought not to get it off subject, but those of you whom are so against gay marriage how do you feel about the laws being discussed in Congo currently about outlawing homosexuality, sending people to prison over it, and perhaps even sentencing them to death for "repeat offenders"?
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    There is certainly a way to remove them. But I do actually think that we should amend the Constitution to allow a super majority vote from the People to remove SCOTUS judges. They're supposed to be impartial observers, serving the powers of the Executive and Legislative branches. Not some partisan crap hole. That's exactly the opposite of their purpose.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Ok, and to be clear I don't care if homosexual couples marry or not. It really doesn't effect me, or my marriage at all. But, I also don't think that every state that legalizies gay marriage deserves the same topic being brought up again and again. After all, if you are a homosexual you are not an ethnic minority, just a group of people wanting to get married....Other than the couples themselves, religious zelots, or future divorce attorneys, we have more important issues.

    Because the clear legal argument favors abortion rights. Duh.

    If you could get the religious zealots to recognize that it has no impact on them, it would be appreciated.
