    Gay marriage is neither inherently good nor bad.

    But I realize that answer isn't really in the spirit of the question, so my answer would be a big resounding YES. If this result is the work of the devil, then Go Team Devil.

Raising emotional ire is exactly the last thing that gay people and those who want to get SSM and live a happy life need. It just makes people mad, and they will then take it out on the most obvious targets. It is time to celebrate(and I am incredibly happy right now), but it is also time to start working on mending fences and getting past the ire. And I think it is those of us who have pushed for this to happen who should start doing the mending.

    Actually,it sounds more like some malevolent Cosmic Eldritch Horror straight out of the pages of H.P. Lovecraft.

    Your book means nothing to me. If you want to cling to your angry hitman god who created gay people in the first place, so be it.

    I'd rather live in rational land.

    Hmm, well I know all states are different so I can only speak to the state I got married in. Honestly we had to raise our right hand and swear we weren't inebriated and of all things not imbeciles.

    As far as shaky ground, I still think it's there being clergy is specifically authorized by the state to sign and perform the legal ceremony. If anybody could sign and authorize said legal document I might agree with you.

    It can be, but in this case, almost certainly won't be because of the fact that support for same sex marriage is only increasing not decreasing, and the only way for this to go back to Court is if the states refuse to obey the SCOTUS ruling and the federal government refuses to enforce it.

    A civil job, not all of them, and only if they refused to perform the legal duties required of the job.

    Signing the document was done in my husband's aunt's house, where the officiant had me, my husband, my best friend, and his best friend (our witnesses) all sign, then she signed it. The clerk who gave us the license didn't require the witnesses nor any but our ID cards.

    The only thing required to sign that document is to receive some approval from some religious group (either in person or over the internet) or become a JoP. Many people have found it incredibly simple to get ordained over the internet and then you just sign up with the state you live in.
