Some more very good news on the marriage equality front this morning (4/18/13):

"WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) The halls of Parliament echoed with a traditional Maori love song after lawmakers made New Zealand the 13th country in the world and the first in the Asia-Pacific region to legalize same-sex marriage.

Supporters of the bill, including hundreds of gay-rights advocates, stood and cheered after the 77-44 vote was announced late Wednesday."

"In our society, the meaning of marriage is universal it's a declaration of love and commitment to a special person," she said. She added that "nothing could make me more proud to be a New Zealander than passing this bill."

"Same-sex marriage is recognized in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina and Denmark. Lawmakers in Uruguay approved a law last week that President Jose Mujica is expected to sign. Nine states and the District of Columbia in the U.S. also recognize such marriages, but the federal government does not."

I expect the last part of the last sentence to change shortly. That will be a great day in that all citizens, not just some, deserve the opportunity to legally marry the one they love.

Some guys prefer hot dogs. Some gals prefer tacos.

Most guys prefer tacos. Most gals prefer hot dogs.

The problem with people like you is you have to tell everyone what your preference is. I don't give a damn what your preference is. I do give a damn when you rub your preference in my face.

Don't force me to make your preference my business. That makes you different. Normal people do not force me to make their preference my business. THAT is why you are abnormal.

Well said.

Live and let live. Love who you love. It's not my business who you love and marry; and it's certaintly not yours who I love and marry. We all just need to grow up and act like adults. Spoken from the "land of the free."

Ah yes, Republican Bubba131 telling us the entire country of New Zealand are idiots.

Let's see, New Zealand is roughly 4.5 million people who speak English, Christianity is the predominant religion, one of the best public educations systems in the world resulting in a 99%+ literacy rate, low unemployment, high tourism destination, and an overall well traveled, educated population.

Ah yes, these are all traits Republicans despise. Once a person is educated and traveled, they never consider the Republican Party anything but a joke ever again.

I'd say Bubba131 calling New Zealanders idiots is the kettle calling the kettle black.

First off, thanks for asking.

It is pretty simple really, "gay rights" is the only remaining civil rights battle left in our great country. We've ruled unconstitutional laws that discriminate against blacks, women, and the handicapped. However, gays remain subject to both state and federal discrimination in numerous ways, marriage being only one of them. As such, as our country matures and moves forward, these laws will fall and gays will enjoy the same American citizenship rights as you and I. Right now they don't, so I guess you could say that's why it's your business, it's a wrong that needs righted.

That said, remember, none of the great civil rights fights in the past was won fast or easily. Hate, pain, and death was experienced by many in settling those issues. This fight is no different. Can you image telling a woman today she could not vote, or a black man he could not live on this or that street, or a disabled man he could not apply for a job? No, of course not. However, that's similar to what gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender American citizens experience every day. They can't marry who they love, they can be fired for their sexuality, they suffer significantly in the tax code although they pay in just like you and me, they lose out on medical coverage, hospital visitation rights, inheritance laws, adoption laws, can be kicked out of restaurants, locked up with members of the opposite sex, etc. In other words, they are not being treated as full-fledged equal citizens.

I hope that helps you understand why it's your business, as you say. And I hope you'll help in eliminating these inequalities. Our country will be better off for it in the end.

One is confusing citizenship with sexual orientation.
So, if we go w/ the gay movements argument then NAMBLA members will want marriage status next.

The gay movement wants to upset what has been the sustainment of the human society for their own selfish wants.

We have yet to see the long term results of gay adoption which is no more than a experiment.

Humans are the only species capable of destroying
themselves and we have begun the process in so many different ways.

Really, that poorly educated? Did you see any women's rights, or black rights, or disabled rights, in the Constitution? Didn't think so. FYI, you won't see any real "personal rights" enumerated until the 1st Amendment in 1791. Furthermore, a number of our "rights" aren't in any major document (i.e., Constitution, Bill of Rights, etc.,) they just exist.

Regarding your comment, "Transgender, freaks." Your wrong. And if you had a child, family member or friend suffering from gender identity conflict, you'd know just how wrong and difficult it is. Just be glad your not suffering too.

Gender identity conflict - BS. A sex change operation is not going to fix your head.

How many times need I say this.. I am an INDEPENTENT (or hoever the hell its spelled..LOL) voter and have crossed party lines often..(Carter,Clinton etc)..perfering to vote for the best canditate in my opinion. Isnt it a shame more people don't do that rather than just voting the party line..
I do not recall calling New Zealanders idiots.Tell me exactly where I did that?
As far as being an idiot is concerned I would suggest anyone who votes the straight party line is an idiot as they disregard qualifications of the canditate. I suspect you vote the straight party line..
I rest my case..
