Color of Law.

The appearance or semblence, without the substance, of legal right. Misuse of power, possessed by virtue of state law and made possible because wrongdoer is clothed with authority of the state, is action taken under "color of the law."

She is scum. She did that to her little boy. Scum for what she put her son through.

I teared up a little when I opened FB just now. My best friend and her fiancee live in MN and are getting married in August. They haven't been asking for special rights, just to be recognized as deserving of rights.

We are not a theocracy and separate, but equal doesn't work.

Como Observatory is opening their doors at midnight 7/31 so gay couples can get married right after the law goes into effect. I looked into volunteering there that night (said i could change out garbage, move chairs, whatever needs to be done), but they don't seem to need help.

My next option is to join people at the steps of city hall in the wee hours to congratulate the newlyweds!:)

Cali Prop. 8 Appeal was dismissed.

Hopefully, we won't see a flurry of folks trying to write other laws to make gay marriage illegal.

Think they want to be treated like some kind of animals on display? Leave them alone.

Somebody on our local newpaper's FB feed said "Does this mean hetero couples who live together get the same?" Oh, the stupid is strong with that one.

Is your dog an unrelated adult, legally capable of entering into contracts?

Didn't think so.

Nobody has responded to this woman! I need a snarky response!

So far I've got "Uh, yeah. I'm pretty sure hetero couples who live together also have the option of getting married."

You should tell her that, yes -- hetero couples can now enter into gay marriages now if they so choose.
