Exactly what part of the Constitution do you think is being violated by a Federal judge overturning a State law? You do know the Federal law takes precedence over State law, don't you?

Marriage is not a civil rights issue.

Gay marriage is not recognized by the federal government.

Therefore, a federal judge has no jurisdiction ruling on a state law banning gay marriage. Gay marriage is left up to the STATE. This case should never have crossed a federal judge's desk.

His ruling is completely meaningless.

Went with a friend to a Christmas music concert at a house on the U of M campus. very lovely music. I really like the religious Christmas songs, the secular ones not so much. Lovely arrangements. Two originals. One was about the wise men. And the pregnant female singer had written a song about Mary and how she was the first person on earth to feel Jesus inside her, now something that everyone can feel, but how was it to be first? Very good stuff. We left early because I needed to get home and get bandages changed and meds taken and just... home, but it was a lovely way to get out for the night.

This atheist enjoyed herself.:)

My friend mindy(concert tonight) got a bday card this weekend from her grandma. Grandma wrote a note inside the card, said she was praying for me every day. Then added, "but next Christmas will be awful without her."

Hahahahahaha!!!! Mindy wasn't fazed at all, said it was just like the woman to say that. She took a picture and sent it to her own mom.

So my niece just got engaged to her girlfriend. Who has a small boy. Not sure if his father is in his life or what kind of male role-model this kid has. So that's two things I'm opposed to. Do I congratulate her? Stay quiet? My silence will eventually be noticed. Do I let her know my stance? I fear that may cause her to alienate me.

I saw Amy's charity column last night and thought, should this have run a little earlier than 12/23?

Nah, no Holy Spirit, just an appreciation for pretty music, interesting arrangements, and a healthy respect for believers who use music to express themselves. I think two of the four performers are regular performers at my friend's small grassroots church (which operates out of a comedy club on Sundays, to save money from having their own place).

Congratulate her like you would any newly engaged couple.

Look, a dear friend of mine is engaged and I think it is a big mistake. But if things don't work out, does anyone die? No. So I slapped a smile on my face and wished him tons of happiness. Nothing negative you say will change what they do, so I figure, why even go there.

And you don't have to agree with her choices, but surely you'd rather she and all involved be happy and that things work out for the best, whatever that may be.

Perhap's just tell her, you are pleased to know she has found happiness? Everyone need'nt have to be aware of your opinion on every issue, don't you think?.....

I would say nothing.
You show us and smile, but not saying a word probably won't be noticed in all the festivities/celebrations/discu ssion/planning from the couple and family.

Well you need to ask yourself, do you WANT to be alienated? I think it should be pretty clear that your opinions will not be welcome nor will they alter her plans. Maybe you should take your own advice. You bark all the time about gays being 'in your face' with their gayness and that you don't care and don't wanna hear about it. Wht would you think your gay neice would want to hear what you have to say on the subject?
