Tractor trailer drivers have a nickname for Virginia...they call it the "Communist State". This is one of the reasons why.

I can think of much worse states, think Illinois, New York, Connecticut, or Massachusetts.

Oh, and don't forget the great communist state of Kalifornia.

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that as a whole, truckers aren't at the forefront of gay rights.

More power to them if they are.

bigotry will fade away with old conservatives, and it will take a while for the scotus right to leave

Why just Virginia? The right of Virginia and 30 other states to make their own definition of marriage in accordance with the voters wishes is AFFIRMED.*THIRTY OTHER STATES*. WITH LARGE POPULATIONS. Does hooking up two negatives on a battery fry your ability to count and think cognitively or something?

The old fat white guy population in this country is fading fast. Not fast enough for me but I'm patient. Now if we could do something about the facists in DC.

The rulings may not have overturned Virginia's ban, but they have painted a big target on it and have given anyone who wishes to challenge them a hell of a lot of ammunition to take it out. In three years at most, Virginia's ban, along with those of every other state, toast.

And they let you live there? Dumpling, whether you like it or not, same sex marriage will be a reality in EVERY state in five years or less. Better start working on your coping skills now.

The fact of marriage of gays or straight is irrelevant. All people should have the same rights, legal unions for the purpose of legal matters etc. Marriage is an act in the sight of GOD, and the government should keep its damn nose out of the business of religion. The federal, state and local governments need to stay within the limits of the Constitution, or we, as a people, need to clean up the government, one way or another.

There is no such entity as government....people make the decsions, not a government per se. Keep the renegade people in check for they make decisions based on what they feel is ok.
