sounds like you've been to one too many mardis gras parades down in New Orleans. those can get pretty scary, i'll give you that.<quoted text>
I think pretty much everyone is over the fact you muff out, or beat up who's ever a$$hole you want. None of my friends care about the Same Sex Marriage issue, nor anyone else I've talk to except old skool people, religious fanatics, or undereducated ignorant hillbillies. There's bigger issues going on in this world than who you wanna lay next to at night. I think this a bigger deal than it should be. If there's an institute that doesn't allow you to get married, Why not just say, "fk em" have your significant other legally change their last name to whoever is doing the pitching, give each other rings and call it a day. The only problem I have is when it's constantly pushed in people's faces, or they shut down city blocks and fk up the traffic bc of those fkin' parades, just so people can get drunk in the middle of the day to walk around with dildos on their heads in front of everyone without taking into consideration kids might be around. Plus, is it really any surprise California the biggest libtard state passed same sex marriage law? The land of government handouts. Please, get real this is not news, and it certainly is not surprising. As for the bigots, who gives a $hit about them? Let them keep wasting their breath on something that doesn't concern them.
it's not as simple as you make it - it's not an issue about what anyone thinks feels or believes. at issue are those 1300+ priviliges extended to legally married couples and the laws that prevent same sex couples from marrying and utilizing and having access to those same priviliges.
many same sex couples have exchanged rings and vows but with no legal protections - these rituals were merely "for show" or emotional reasons. there was no legal rights that were suddenly open to them. there was no legal recognition of those rituals, performed in a church or not.
