You lost me at bigots.
The Supreme court has ruled that gay marriage is a state issue. Let the legislature pass gay marriage then if that's what the people want. My point is, is not up to the judge. If a judge rules it unconstitutional, let the legislature vote on it. To rule it unconstitutional and therefore it's legal, effective immediately, is what I take issue with
Tough. That's the way it works. Your feelings on Oregon law are irrelevant.

Oh, and the legislature had nothing to do with the initiative, so why should they have anything to do with it now?
Really, you shoud STFU about things you are so ignorant about.
But go on with your silly tantrums, it makes me laugh,

50% of the Oregon population? This is just untrue (but I know you, and your ilk, aren't ones to let facts get in the way of you opinion.) The ban on gay marriage was passed by the elective representatives of the majority of the population. Calling the rule unconstitutional, fine, send it back to the legislature. Call it unconstitutional so now it's legal and gay marriage licenses can now be issued is a direct violation of the 10th amendment.
A federal judge ruled that Illinois's ban on conceal carry was unconstitutional. The state legislature had six months to amend that law. By your logic, as soon as the judge ruled it unconstitutional, I could then conceal carry immediately.
And the right to bear arms is explicitly mentioned in amendment number 2. The "right" to marry is not mentioned anywhere. Gay marriage is not a constitutional issue, any judge who rules otherwise should be immediately disbarred. It is purely a social issue
First of all, I never said Oregon, it eas US opinion.

Now make up your feeble mind. One minute you want only judges to make and then rule on laws but then you say a judge should be disbarred if he rules other then what you believe. Can't have it both ways, mope.

God help this country against the day that judges make decisions based on popular opinion. Seriously. That is not their job.
Popular opinion gets voiced through the legislature when they pass laws and the judges are tasked with interpreting the law, or, sometimes saying whether a law runs afoul with the state or US constitution.

Tonka has my deepest and most sincere sympathy,.
Thanks, but I'm gonna guess it varies greatly. I was non functional most of the day in that I really could not find a comfortable position and there was no way I could focus on anything(glad I left work before it really started). Tossed and turned all day. But to me, it was discomfort and pain rolled together, but I'd say more discomfort than pain. My wife has had 2 kids and passed a stone. She laughed when my dad(who has passed a stone) suggested it was as painful as labor.

Its legal to go pick someone up at a bar, get on a dating site, go pick someone up off craigslist, or at the gym, or pottery class. People already have the ability to break their vows. If legal prostitution is the only thing stopping someone from breaking their vows, those vows really don't mean that much.

It DOES vary greatly. The ones I had would not have passed, I had surgery to fix it.

Actually, in this state, in this case, that is exactly how it works.
Licenses were being issued shortly after the ruling was filed, a ballroom was ready with clergy and others who could legally wed couples, and there are many MANY newly wed couples celebrating tonight.
Just galls you, don't it?
As always, you're TSTI

True, but all the ways you mentioned are not with the express purpose of ejaculation. Prostitution is. That is its only promise.

If you meet a woman in a bar and buy her a few drinks, you are still not guaranteed to get laid. Entitled to it maybe, but not promised.

If you legalize it, then its like grabbing a brew after work. So of course I fully support it.

Destruction? No, this ruling was to UPHOLD the US constitution by nullifying an amendment that was added a decade ago to the OR state constitution.
There were many more than six couples marrying yesterday, and for every couple there are entire families celebrating with them.
Nobody will ever celebrate you.
So sad and alone he is, because he is just TSTI.
Really, your insistence on making your silly comments about things you are completely ignorant of is just hilarious sometimes!!
I'm still dancing for them, and laughing at you.

Oh, just got this from the news. Over a hundred couples got licensed and wed yesterday just in two counties of the Portland area.
That's just those who didn't want to wait until the weekend or plan a larger wedding.
It's just such a HAPPY thing!!

At least you're not resorting to petty insults and name-calling. How mature and tolerant you are
