    Now, in their mind, they can justify their bigotry in a hundred ways. Bigots always do.

    It's truly a shame that DC made this decision. I wonder if this decision was made by popular vote or some DC government thing. Anyway, the law is the law, regardless of if I agree with it morally or not.

No matter how much you all like to say that this is nothing like anti-miscegenation laws, you are wrong. It is a lot like them, unless you want to show me where the law requires that marriages must result in children or that the two people involved have to be able to have children.

    Now, if the government decided that, yes, marriage is for the good of children, and that is why it exists, then you might have a case against gay marriage. Of course, the government has never actually said this, and doing so could easily put other people's marriages in question. I'm thinking especially about transgendered marriages, old people who want to get married, people who have some form of sterilization, and certain handicapped people.

    However, since the government is in the business of giving special entitlements and privileges to people who get married without any care to whether or not those two people can actually produce offspring, then it really isn't fair for them to say that one group of people isn't eligible just because they can't produce offspring.
    I would like to marry 2 or 3 women but I can't just like gays can't marry someone of the same sex...........If they are allowed to change the law why can't I?


    The government says marriage is good for the family...It stabalizes it and helps with the rearing of children.......

    I don't give a **** about who anyone loves because love is not enough and love is not what marriage is about. Love supports a marriage, it is not the purpose of marriage.

    Love who you want, **** who you want, but if your relationship doesn't fit the mold then it's not a 'marriage' even if the law says so.

    These are universal truths persistent throughout human history regardless of time or culture, and no shallow political activist group is going to change that.

    Anyone else notice that since this is DC, gay-marriage was just taken out of the "states rights" arena?

    It's now a Federal matter.

    As it should be.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I have no problem with that as long as the all the women are ok with entering into a polygamous marriage. Change it if you really want to.

    And gays have children. And they can adopt children.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    No reason at all. Go for it and I'd be right behind you. Polygamy should be legal too.
