More good news on the Same-Sex Marriage, Gay Marriage, or Equality for All front.

The Minnesota House and Senate in a bipartisan manner passed same-sex marriage this week permitting adults to marry who they love, not which sex the state says is okay. The Governor signed the bill into law yesterday. Weddings will take place in August 2013.

I know I said this before, but it's really, really nice to see Republicans finally start to work will Democratic leaders on important issues for our country. Hopefully, some of the bipartisanship will spill into the Republican controlled House in Washington and we'll get some other things done there as well.

Of note, Minnesota is the first Midwestern state to legalize same-sex marriage through legislative action. While same-sex marriage is also legal in Iowa, it came about due to a court decision. So that's nice to see.

Same-sex marriage is now recognized in France, New Zealand, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, Uruguay and Denmark.

Twelve states and the District of Columbia in the U.S. also recognize such marriages, but the federal government does not - just yet anyway. I expect that to change this year with a couple of Supreme Court cases being settled.

Any bets on when Georgia might see the light?

Being a realist, and knowing Georgia's history with resisting any meaningful social change, I'm guessing around 2025. We could conceivably even be the last in the nation, at a negative cost to our state and our children's future of course. Too bad.

Bets on which state will be next?

I could care less who marries who.
The one thing I do know is that same-sex marriage does is limit genes from being passed on as those of the same sex cannot reproduce.
See that word 'sex' in same sex marriage well that explains it all.

Hate to break the news to you, Mona, but every LGBT person had heterosexual parents.

Please, do tell this expense to our kids? Are we in a rush to lead them to believe against God's word? That homosexuality is acceptable? I pray that this state NEVER allows it, nor any other state in the Bible belt. However, with the influx of warped minded people into Fl, they will be the first Southern state to cave.

Honey, you're kidding us right? I mean you weren't ok with it when women couldn't vote were ya? Or when blacks couldn't sit in the front of the bus? Or when the American Indian wasn't allowed off the reservation past 8PM? Etc. So what's different here now?

Nothing I tell ya and you know it. That baby in the hospital nursery deserves the same civil rights and equal protection of the law as the one next to it regardless of their sexual preference. Each baby's got their own set of genes, somes gay, somes straight, somes lesbians, somes even transgender, some tall, some short, some cute, some not so cute, but they all deserve a fair and equal chance in life including who to love and marry.

So if you want to do some praying, maybe you should be a praying for forgiveness for not treating everyone fairly as is the real Christian manner I've been taught. Then you could start praying Georgia and the nation sees the light and starts treating all citizens fairly instead of discriminating against them as we are now.

Amen sister, amen.
