    some counties issued, and some did not. those who got married during the window in which SSM was legal received licenses.

    SoCON crap. Lots of men have morals and value the Institution of Marriage, but are respectful of other opinions and don't hold their PERSONAL opinion as trump.

    Two dudes getting married doesn't lessen my marriage to my wife. Two heteros 'living in sin' doesn't damage my morals. A woman using birth control doesn't get in the way of my path to Salvation. A woman choosing to abort her fetus doesn't block my line of sight to Jesus.

    SoCONs have enough on their plate trying to stay straight with Jesus to be leaning over anyone else's biscuit....

    Various American ideological, theological, jurisdictional and just plain obstinate opposition to same sex marriage is really boring.

    Either open up marriage to anyone who wants to get married or remove government from the licensing process.

    There are a gayzillian other far more important issues to deal with. I don't understand the obsession.

    They reserve the right to do that with every other kind of license they issue.....business license, liquor license, to practice law, to appraise realestate, to drive......I don't see why the marriage license should be any different; it's not like you have to brake up if your license is voided.

    I agree. Some people here are just terrified senseless about the thought of the same sex unions. I do not understand why you would want to marry your own sex but then in that same breath I see heterosexual couples and have no clue why they would want to be with each other.

    But for me it comes down to we are given only one life to live here on earth and what you want to do with that life really shouldn't be anyone else's business. Unless of course you are fornicating with 5 year olds.
    For a lot of people though who have shallow lives they feel the need to be involved in everyone else's lives.

    If the 'CON' is capital then that's an acronym, each letter representing a different word. So if you meant "Social Conservative" you would have typed "SoCon", not "SoCON". Since you didn't type "SoCon" you therefore didn't mean "Social Conservative", and so we're left to guess what in the world you're talking about. You're illiteracy works against you.

    So we should allow polygamous and incestuous marriages in order to preserve traditional marriage? If you want to "preserve marriage as the traditional institution it is," which is an utterly meaningless phrase, you have to be a realist about the history of marriage. "Tradition" is an abstract and arbitrary concept, so it is purely illogical take something that has been done historically and say we should do it purely because it has been done when it has negative consequences on society.

    I assume that your opposition to gay marriage comes from a religious standpoint, but I must object to this as well. The U.S. government is not supposed to give a bias to a certain religion or lack thereof, according to the first amendment, nor is it supposed to discriminate upon its citizens. Why on earth do you consider two people wanting to get married something that should be prevented legally, even if you oppose it morally?

    Yeah, that's probably true. He is probably one of the worst current governors (not there are very many good ones).
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
