⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
Some gay men at gay pride parades wear leather and a collar. Therefore all gays are kinky perverts that love S/M activities.
Some Catholic Priests are pedophiles. Therefore I can safely assume all Catholic Priests love to molest young boys.
The KKK consisted almost entirely of white people. Therefore I can safely assume all white people are racists that enjoy lynching black people.
19 Muslims flew 2 airplanes into buildings to attack America. Therefore we can all safely assume all Muslims are terrorists that want to kill us.
See? It's fun. And you can do it with any group!

You are correct. Most people don't support same sex marriage. However, 58% support civil unions. If we are going by what the people support, does that mean you support civil unions?You can keep beating your head against the wall if you want too, but the people, just don't support this drive to alter what Marriage is defined as.

...New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Iowa, and Massachusetts.
Four more states have not instituted same sex marriage, but recognize same sex marriages performed in other states...
...New York and California don't grant same sex marriage certificates, but they recognize those performed in other states...
...New Jersey and Washington recognize same sex marriages performed in other states as civil unions with all the equal rights of marriage...which really under DOMA isn't much different than recognizing them as full marriage.
So that comes to 9 states that recognize same sex marriage.

You better check that map out again so or take a course in math......The green states are the only ones that recognize gay marriage..........Did you happen to notice the ones with DOMAS? are you actually bringing up NJ an California........This thread is about NJ rejecting gay marriage...

I was going to respond but realized I would simply be repeating the original post. Seriously, the map is as clear as day. Green states allow gay marriage, yellow states have a civil union that is the same thing as marriage except in name. You add them up, that's nine.
Unless you're trying so hard to keep the numbers down that you refuse to acknowledge a civil union as a "recognition".

Navy, just because California doesn't give out same sex marriage certificates does not mean it doesn't recognize same sex marriages performed in other states.
In other words, if I get married to a man in Vermont and I move to California, then my same sex marriage will be recognized by the state of California even though California has a Constitutional Ban against same sex marriage.

The same holds true in New York, New Jersey, and Washington. Even though none of those states have same sex marriage, they will recognize same sex marriages performed in other states.
