    Gay Marriage Stirs Little Public Outcry in NM[W:95]

    Gay Marriage Stirs Little Public Outcry in NM - ABC News
    NM Judge Upholds County's Gay Marriage Ruling

    LOS ALAMOS, N.M. September 4, 2013 (AP)
    By BARRY MASSEY Associated Press






    A northern New Mexico county became the eighth in the state on Wednesday to clear the way for same-sex couples to be married.The Los Alamos County clerk's office issued a marriage license to a lesbian couple shortly after a state district judge upheld a decision requiring that to happen.Janet Newton and Maria Thibodeau were denied a license last week and filed a lawsuit that led to a ruling by District Court Judge Sheri Raphaelson that same-sex couples are entitled to be married in New Mexico.Los Alamos County Clerk Sharon Stover went to court Wednesday to defend her decision to deny the couple a license, but the judge ruled against the clerk.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    In hopes of getting a uniform statewide ruling on gay marriage from the Supreme Court, an association representing county clerks statewide Democrats and Republicans plans to appeal an Albuquerque judge's ruling last week that said it was unconstitutional to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

    now it looks like 2 more states will be granting equal rights soon, thats 15 and that would bring the total to 3 or 5 this year depending on how you look at it> Some ruled on it before this year but it went into effect this year.

    The dominoes are falling! that's like the 3rd or 4th gays rights victory or possible victory Ive been able to post in just as many days.

    I wonder what states will be next?!

    Hopefully all of them in a short period of time! The writing is on the wall and change is coming. It's time for the remaining people opposing this to get on the right side of history.

    Personally I don't care much about the gay marriage issue one way or the other but it does raise a question. If gays can marry who or what is next, should we start with making polygamy legal? If anyone can marry anyone why can't anyone marry multiple people? Why not one man and two women or even two women and a man or..... use your imagination. Once you start messing around with "marriage" where does it end?

    You can stop crying in yer soup, the rest of us have given up and pretty much said goodbye to the America we knew and loved. Screw it, just give us the "free" stuff, the experiment that was the United STATES is done.

    now of course if people want to BELIEVE, THINK, and PREACH minorities, women and gays are bad and evil they are free to do so and i would protect thier right to do so. But discriminating against them and trying to deny them equal rights is just dumb.

    Slowly but surely the US fixes its social wrongs.

    Twenty-five years from now conservatives will be talking about how they are the true defenders of the LGBT community and Libruls are their oppressors.

    Gay marriage doesnt lead to polygamy anymore than hetero marriage does and theres no precedence set by gay or hetero marriage alone that lends itself to fight for polygamy.
    This slippery slop fallacy is always a complete failure.

    we heard it with minorities and women voting, "if they get to vote I might as well let my horse vote" and with interracial marriage, "if a white can marry a black why not just marry a dog"

    these irrational failed straw men and slipper slope fear tactics were illogical and inane back then and that holds true today fore gay marriage.

    so to answer your question where does THIS particular issue end (where does equal rights for gays lead)?, it ends at equal rights for gays because that argument doesnt hold true for any other groups.

    to make your question honest and or logical, you would have to ask where does marriage lead us PERIOD.

    and ill try to answer that question also. Marriage is consenting, sound mind adults. SO if polygamist want to fight for the NEW right to marry they "could" and if they would win, which i would support, it will have nothing to do with solely GAY marriage but them wanting to have marriage laws recognize multiple partners which it doesnt do currently.

    the hard part would be figuring out the rules, property rights, taxes, what happens when one member of the marriage dies or divorces etc. Among fighting for a new right that is their other hurdle.

    after that theres nothing left that fits legal contract law and consenting sound mind adults. Do you have any specific ones youd like to discuss?

    while im sure many will thats not fair to group them all together, many conservatives support equal rights. Stereotypically their platform is against it but platforms and media all suck.

    First you say no slippery slope then you make a comment that proves there is one.
