    My guess is that you will do jack squat beyond smiling.
    Smiling ain't so bad.

    Are you sure that Lursa doesn't have any skin in the game? She seemed to be more anxious to see it take place than you. After all. She had her fingers crossed.

    I don't think the paperwork is very important to any couple. SSM is about the principles upon which this nation was created.

    Loving v VA would be the case that struck down interracial marriage bans in those states that hadn't already done so.

    Encyclopedia Virginia: Loving v. Virginia (1967)

    Loving v. Virginia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    States cannot have laws that violate the US Constitution. Restrictions on marriage based on sex/gender or race violate the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution.

    I'm a fighter when it comes to equality.

    Equal rights are something to never take for granted and I can put myself in someone else's shoes and understand their joy at being able to marry.

    It affects me not at all.

    Empathy. Compassion for fellow man.

    NEWS FLASH!!


    Gay marriage is already legal in the United States.
    LMAO

    My state is one of the few that voted in SSM by popular vote.

    And there were lots of celebrations.

    I guess because I care about other people and personal liberty and equal rights.


    I feel shame when I see people being like 2nd class citizens...shame for America and the principles it's founded on.

    Your lack of empathy is troubling.

    Muslims are allowed to have 4 wives. Some extremist sects of the Mormon faith allow multiple wives. Should we treat them as second class citizens too?

    How did you celebrate when your state legalized same sex marriage? I bet you didn't do jack squat.

    I can barely manage one wife, if these people can manage 4 or more, they should be given keys to the city IMO.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
