    LoL. Its funny because it actually works as a rebuttal.

    History repeats itself, same old story over and over. Every time we make progress the conservatives roll around in fits claiming its the end of the world and its wrong, wrong, wrong!!! 50 years later its the status quo and the conservatives say they were the ones fighting against tyranny, haha.

    We have to get training and education before being given any number of other licenses. I don't see why a marriage license should be any different.
    Would you favor the same for gun ownership?

    I do favor the same for gun ownership. In fact if it weren't for all the gun gabbiness I would support a number of regulations, including a requirement to store your guns in a rated gun safe and mandatory insurance for the carrier.

    My state is currently doing 2 things with reagard to our permit:
    1. We're going to allow residents to carry concealed without a permit.
    2. If you want a permit then we're adding a class requirement, and we will use NICS to run your background (currently the sheriff's system is used which only covers 3 and a half states), which means not only better background checks but having the permit means you don't need to do a background check when you buy any firearm in SD.

    Likewise I don't think you should need any kind of permit or license to live with whomever you want, but if you want to use that relationship while engaging in commerce (insurance plans, federal benefits, automatic inheritance, etc), then you should take some training as a condition of having that license. This includes marriage.

    "Same-sex marriages in California resumed Friday when a federal appeals court lifted a hold on a 2010 injunction, sparking jubilation among gays and cries of lawlessness from the supporters of Proposition 8.


    In a surprise action, a federal appeals court cleared the way, bypassing a normal waiting period and lifting a hold on a trial judge’s order that declared Proposition 8 unconstitutional."



    Prop H8 is dead!!!! Let Freedom ring!
    yep good thing in deed

    equality and ending discrimination is good
    with the fall of DOMA soon all states will have to stop discriminating once the issue is pushed

They wanted to change the definition of marriage. It was about some people using the judicial system to comply with a minority's (interracial couples') wishes. The state of Virginia and South Carolina and Alabama and many more voted to keep marriage the same, no interracial couples, and a few judges overturned the will of the people.

    See how horrible that argument is.
    What's wrong with your argument is that marriage is between a man and a woman, No one wanted to change that. They wanted to ban certain marriages, and did for a while with the help of the courts. They wanted to narrow the definition of marriage and limit it to within races. That was an attack on the definition of marriage.

    Marriage between a man and a woman has been attacked again, and again aided by the courts.

    That is about as dumb as the people who say that homosexuals are usually child molesters.

    No, it isn't. It easily accommodates two men or two women. Your personal definition of marriage means nothing in our laws. What matters is how marriage laws functions, and they aren't gender dependent.

    Lot's of reasonable discussions on this thread. basically if you don't agree with the left's views on gay marriage you are the moral equivalent of a southern sheriff from the 60's spraying black people with fire hoses. not....very.....reasonable. and makes it quite hard to have a real debate with real exchange of ideas.

    See, now you are just making things up. That's a bad argument
