    What you call resistance, I'd call opposition. And proclaims aside....same sex marriage is 0-31 in referendum and gets absolutely wiped out in blue states such as Hawaii and California, New York....a solid blue state...referenced in this thread.

    I believe opposition is what NP proclaims, I believe it's clearly others that are still in denial. And as we both know, denial ain't no river in Egypt.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    ALBANY The New York State Senate decisively rejected a bill on Wednesday that would have allowed gay couples to wed, providing a major victory for those who oppose same-sex marriage and underscoring the deep and passionate divisions surrounding the issue

    The 38-to-24 vote startled proponents of the bill and signaled that political momentum, at least right now, had shifted against same-sex marriage, even in heavily Democratic New York. It followed more than a year of lobbying by gay rights organizations, who steered close to $1 million into New York legislative races to boost support for the measure.
    I knew the moment I heard about this story that you would probably post a thread about it. Leave it to you to celebrate this. I think gay marriage still has a rough battle before it is made legal, which I fully expect it to eventually be. Society can't help but progress. Heck, look how far we've come since the early 80's when people were terrified of homosexuals and actually thought that they were the cause of AIDS. Now we are at the level of legitimately fighting for gay marriage. If you really think that a few instances of gay marriage being shot down like this will stop it dead in its tracks, you are sorely mistaken.

    Anyone that thinks that gay marriage is moving towards approval lives in fantasy land........Every time there is and election and gay marriage is on the ballot its shot down........When activist judges like in California approve it its shot down......When activist legislatures like in Maine approve it its shot down.....Every time the people get a chance to vote on it its shot down...........

    As far as AIDS go in the beginning it was gay men disease...the problem is BI sexuals have crossed over and given it to straight men

    Like I said, it is going to go through a fair amount of struggle before it is eventually made legal. If you really think that the issue is just going to go away after being shot down you are sorely mistaken.

    Ah, so you are a part of the fringe who still believes it is a gay disease. I can see, as I should have before, that any attempts at logical discussion with you on the subject is pointless.

    The sanctity of marriage?

    In a world where people can get married by going through a drive thru, where the divorce rate is extremely high, where there are reality shows based around the concept for our entertainment, I don't know exactly where you get the idea that there is any sanctity left.

    Again you show you total ignorance for the history of the issue in California. The California Supreme court is conservative leaning. It was the 'activist' judges that upheld prop 8 as a legal ballot measure. I guess if you were better informed on the overall issue, you would know that.

    I would suggest that, in the future, you do more research and reading on the subject before posting and embarrassing yourself by making statements that only reveal a profound lack of knowledge and understanding.

    You may also be aware that the California matter is going before a U.S. Circuit Court this Jan. (I think) on constitutional issues. Prop 8 does violate the U.S. constitution and will be struck down at the federal level.

    The only ones living in Fantasyland are the bigots and homophobes. IMHO.

    To be so angry and afraid... I can't imagine how people live like that.

    Those that think gay marriage isn't moving towards approval are the ones living in a fantasy land. 30 years ago gay marriage wasn't even able to get on statewide ballots.

    As usual, NP, you show nothing but ignorance. Glad your generation is fading away in terms of ignorance.
