I guess that would make you a charter member of the National Necrophilia foundation I reckon then? Sexey and dead,the Marlboro man died of lung cancer quite awhile ago! He even did an anti-smoking commercial for the Cancer society with him up on his big OL horse with a oxygen tank and mask before he died!

So, what you're saying is that it was legal in some states, but not recognized in others? Hmmmm... That sounds vaguely familiar.
And I'm guessing that the happy couples you talked about didn't honeymoon in Mississippi.
I pointed out legal interracial (black white) are nothing new, and existed prior to some of the bans. SSM is a modern invention.

How many races/ethnicities are there? Same number as there are sexes?

The Supreme Court "expanded" the definition of marriage in 1967 to include marriages between interracial couples.
No, they simply recognized a husband AND wife, regardless of ethnicity, are still husband AND wife.

I'm sure that there have always been a percentage of monogamous gay couples, just as there have always been gay people: Monotheism drove gay people underground, just like it drove prostitution underground.

So, you're saying that the Supreme Court "expanded" or "redefined" marriage in America to include interracial marriage; which had not been recognized universally in the U.S. prior to 1967.

And you, yourself, admitted earlier that same-gender marriages have existed in the past. So, it's not like it's a brand new idea.

Besides, same-sex couples have been around for eons, even if they haven't been formally recognized through marriage.

You guys act as though us gay people just started falling out of the closet a few years ago.

We won't let your ignorance stand in the way of what we believe we are entitled to.

Nice. Don't understand why you cannot include Hawaii in your 4 corners, call it a Ferry Jaunt?

Bet that 30 Degrees felt like heaven, huh? Get rid of the hair-dryer blast...
We were coming down the west side of the Rockies fairly early in the morning. We'd gone through Powder River Pass (elev. 9666). It was mid July and there was snow on the ground when we got off the bikes to stretch at the elevation sign. This was fairly early in the morning so the ride down the west side was in the shade of the mountains. My fingers went numb after a bit (summer gloves), but I didn't care, just put one hand on the cylinder head for a bit and then repeat for the other.

No time for a ferry to Hawaii! Gotta get from Key West to Madawaska, Maine via San Diego and Blaine, WA in three weeks to get the biscuit. That reminds me, I've got to join the So Cal MC Association (or something like that) to make the ride official. Good thing I don't care much about sight seeing from Key West to west Texas as I've been all over the place in that section of the country. That and west Texas is best gone through as fast as possible to get through the feedlot stench. Nothing like the smell of urine from cattle living in crowded feedlots. They're shoulder to shoulder on dung mountains.

Care to repeat it?
If you dumb down marriage to two people in a relationship, it is simply a friendship with a discriminatory limit on the number of people.

----they dont want us to know about it ----
The case of a same-sex Connecticut couple accused of repeatedly raping and abusing two of their nine adopted boys is headed for trial.
Married couple George Harasz and Douglas Wirth of Glastonbury were supposed to be sentenced Friday in Hartford Superior Court under a plea deal, but instead withdrew from their agreement with prosecutors. The men had already pleaded no contest in January to one felony count each of risk of injury to a minor — a reduction from even more serious charges related to sexual assault.

A local CBS station covered it. There is also a Huffington Post article about it.

Same-gender marriage is nothing new either. Couples have been trying to have their marriages legalized for over 40 years.

And I'm sure that when interracial marriage started here in the U.S. it was considered unthinkable to the vast majority of citizens--just like you think same-gender marriage is unthinkable.

Now we don't even give interracial marriages a second thought.

Marriage laws have evolved in this country. There is no denying that.

At one time it in the U.S. was legal for people to marry as young as 12 years old. And in some parts of the developing world, that's still possible.

You guys seem to think that marriage has been static and unchanging for thousands of years. But you know that isn't the case.

Whether it's been between one man and one woman, one man and multiple women, one woman and multiple men, a man and a man, a woman and a woman, one man (or woman) and deceased people (look up "ghost marriages"), arranged marriages--the fact of the matter is that marriage has looked very different over time and throughout the different cultures on this planet.

That we are evolving marriage to include same-gender couples is just another example of the changes in the definition of marriage.
