    They will lose, but they have not lost yet.

    Just because you piss in the wind, doesn't mean you won't get wet. Yes, effectively the writing is on the wall, they lost. Now they are just fighting the inevitable. It doesn't bother me in the least because it makes the anti-SSM crowd look worse and worse everyday. Even the GOP is starting to change their tune about SSM because they see the writing on the wall too.

    I said they will lose, but they have not lost yet.

    Keep in mind 4 states out of 50 want gay marriage, at least provably want gay marriage.

    Well I'm sure the majority of states wouldn't want you so maybe we should put that to a popular vote as well.

    You're probably right considering she is buried and doesn't pay taxes anymore. So is that a yes then?

    I guess I would contribute more, so that was a low bar for comparison.

    The bulk of gay marriage has been approved not by a majority of the voters, but court order or legislation.
    And - so what?

    From July, 2013 poll:
    Gallup Gay Marriage Poll Finds Majority Of U.S. Citizens Would Support Nationwide Marriage Equality Law

    Fifty-two percent of respondents in a new Gallup Politics poll would support a law that would legalize same-sex marriage across all 50 U.S. states. On the flip side, 43 percent of the poll's participants said they would vote against such a law.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Federal judge strikes down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage[W:780]Okey doke. That should be the end of the personal comments and baiting. Or...

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.
