    It still feels good though!
    20 years ago there were 0. I have no doubt in my mind the majority of the world will follow suit in the next 30-40 years.

    I'm not quite that optimistic. I think it'll take a lot longer than that for many parts of E. Europe, the Middle East and Africa to get with the programe. Within your timeframe I reckon we'll see most of S. America, the US, all of western Europe and scattered parts of SE and E Asia conquered by the homo-hordes. Huzzah!

    And sad to see 175 idiots vote against this.. guess they are the same crowd that would vote against women's right to vote and allow children to work in coal mines.

    I'm unsurprised.
    Andalu, remember that for me the emotional interaction of the relationship is SECONDARY to the ability for the relationship (and both parties involved) to maintain itself within the proper limitations and boundaries of proper society. The greatest emotional attachment means nothing if the interaction of the parties is damaging to their place in society as a whole and their souls as well.

    Ahh okay to me that is the same /shrug The whole church thing is a private affair for me.. could hold it in a barn for all I care.. the important thing is the legal documents and equality.

    You might try that line out on your fiancé, see how much hoochy-koochy you get tonight.

    I did say that I was unsurprised, Tigger. I remain so; you're one of a kind. Despite your protestations, past and future, I'm pretty sure you're less of a dogmatist in real life than you present yourself to be here.

    P.S: I'm pretty sure you told me I was on your ignore list. Please adjust your sig.

    Actually, she and I had that conversation a long time ago, and she comes from a nearly identical mindset as mine.

    One of a kind is probably a very good description. As for my dogmatism.... you might be surprised.

    And me entering into a heterosexual relationship would be damaging to my place in society as a whole, and would damage my soul probably beyond repair. So with your own logic you should support SSM, and homosexual relationships.

    I bet she is praying that she will be special and you will never physically attack her. We'll see what she thinks after the first time you actually whup her ass.

    Civil unions for homosexual couples only do create a second class, where the "morally superior" option is only available to a certain group of people.
