Minnesota will not be turned.

Marriage means 1 woman and 1 man.

In Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Iowa, Connecticut, & DC marriage also means same-sex couples.

Sooner or later we'll get Minnesota too; maybe not this year, but soon enough. It's only a matter of time.

On a positive note, polling out yesterday shows marriage equality still leads in Maine & Washington 55-45.

You dykes and fairies and creeps can whine about your queer garbage being normal and why you have to talk to little kids about your disgusting homosexual perversion right away, but the voters will have to set you straight.
Keep the hell away from our kids.

The gay marriage equality issue is a myth. You cannot equate an apple to an orange.

But you can equate one marriage to another marriage.

Ah, sweet justice, coming soon to your state.

Prop 8 will be rejected by the SCOTUS on Nov 26th, and same-sex couples will resume marrying in California.

You can equate anything to anything if you rationalize hard enough.

It's hilarious to see all these bigots shaking in their boots about the votes. Oh how they'll whine and complain if even one state votes in support of marriage equality. I have no doubt that there'll be more than one though.

Married = Married.

Gee, that wasn't hard at all.

Yep, Maine & Washington look like wins; Maryland is iffy.

In addition, Illinois, Rhode Island, Hawaii, & Delaware are poised to pass marriage equality bills in 2012/13.

And of course we get California back as soon as the SCOTUS denies their appeal at the end of the month (Nov 26th).

Another 2013 battle will be the Gov election in New Jersey.

If Christie loses his reelection bid, then marriage equality will be coming to New Jersey as well, assuming the state court doesn't do it first.

Unfortunately things SELDOM go as planned!

But at least we've got another half dozen states in play for this year & next.

Voting pro-family makes this country sick?

What an odd idea.
