Municipalities would increase revenue because of wedding licensing fees; New York City received a reported $250 million in revenue after lifting their ban on gay marriage. Companies like Tiffany’s (TIF), Marriot (MAR), and Williams-Sonoma (WSM) are just some that would feel the impact of this boom.
    I can't speak for anyone else here,but that seems to me to be 9.5 billion damn good reasons to be in favor of SSM.

    May I point out that all this talk here on DP of "traditions","dictionary definitions" and "beliefs" does not put food on anyone's table,pay anyone's rent or mortgage,help pay people's bills,or can be taxed.
    But $9,500,0000,000 can.

    How many times did I post that Maryland was the first SSC to declare in 1999 what Hawaii's SSC actually declared in 1993?

    Some gay marriage ideologue finally took my hint and Googled some gay marriage facts; thought I was misinformed when I was actually just testing your knowledge (or lack thereof).

    So, which state supreme court first declared marriage was a 'right for all' (a transformation of Hawaii's decision)? What was that court's motivation for the ruling?

    Do any of these facts matter to you?
    Why should they matter to anyone? When something occurs on the timeline doesn't change the meaning of the decision. Which state first did it doesn't change the fact that same sex marriage is becoming legal/has become legal in many states. It is in no way relevant to how long it will be til same sex marriage is legal nationwide. It took almost a hundred years to make interracial marriage legal nationwide.

    Are you seriously on this Maryland rant again even after I showed you that the Maryland supreme court upheld the gay marriage ban in 2007.

    I'd suggest you look into Massachusetts sheesh

    Morality doesn't change, what is right today is right tomorrow. SSM is not right.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Morality does change.

    History shows this and SSM will become a right soon.

    How has morality changed? It hasn't. Only foolish opinions of man has.

    Morality is subjective. Different people have different views of what is right and wrong. It is merely your belief that same sex marriage is wrong. You cannot prove it is wrong, any more than I can prove it is right. The same is in fact true for anything. You cannot prove that marriage is morally right anymore than someone against marriage can prove that it is morally wrong.

    Example: marital rape. It used to be completely acceptable, now it isn't.

    But this doesn't really prove that morals, as a whole change. It proves that the majority opinion of what is right or wrong has changed with time.
