Not a good day for the religious right. They also saw an anti abortion bill go unsigned in the ridiculous state of Texas. Man, a black president and now equal rights for gays? This is going to be enough to break the hoods out again!

Were you just waiting for an excuse to break out your hood? Much like you are just waiting for a good excuse to riot?

So what do we do when an Arab move to the US with 4 wives. He loves them too..... Who are the gays to judge them...... Oh, and sharia allows killing gays too..... Should we want that because it is what the belief is..... How far do we run from traditional western values.....

Great point Batch. Be careful what you wish for. The values you reject may be your own!

Let's not forget about the Mormons...I'm just waiting for them to challenge laws against polygamy. Who are we to tell them they can't have a dozen wives and have them all covered on their insurance (and all their kids, too)?
What about Indian and Pakistani cultures who arrange child marriages? Who are we to disrespect their culture? They can now challenge those laws in court and marry their 9 and 10 year old girls to 40 year old men.

One Correction Free...... Mormon Church has left that practice over 138 years ago and is not acceptable..... But I get your point..... I am Roman Catholic but try to understand other cultures as a Melting Pot 2nd gen American.......

Hey there Batch...
Defining "traditional western values" might be a bit tough.
As far as I can tell the values we hold today are not necessarily what our founders held...unless we want to re-instate slavery and remove women's voting rights to mention a couple of things.
Lest we forget we should also make alcohol illegal again also.

Doing any fishing?

Actually, it may not be in the mainline Mormon church, but it is still practiced in non-mainline Mormonism. There are also other cultures that practice polygamy along with child marriages.

Our practice of marriage today is actually very young.
Here's an interesting read...A history of Marriage.

Actually, not a good day for the gays. Despite their little court ruling, they still cannot reproduce. Nothing will ever change that, no matter how much the gays and their fanatic supporters make things up.

Judge Judy, I guess you're not aware that technology exists to help gay couples and infertile heterosexual couples reproduce. Ever hear of In Vitro Fertilization? Adoption is also an option for gay couples who want children. And no, I'm not making that up.

Fudge packing to reproduce? Really, the traditionalists need to reassert themselves to be a common norm these days....
