Federal gay marriage nationwide can now be a reality.

This is what we needed. I don't even know what to say. My state of Pennsylvania, where gay marriage isn't legal, I could get married next year. Oh my god this is very emotional for me.

Homosexuality is condemned in the Bible. Below are some Bible verses that condemn homosexuality:

Working on Saturday is condemned in the Bible. Below are some Buy-bull verses that condemn working on Saturday.

"Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death." Exodus 35:2

"And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day. And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation. And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him. And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp." Numbers 15:32-35

I always find it amusing when this topic comes up. People get upset about something that will not affect their lives at all. In most cases it's fundietards trying to legislate their beliefs. How gay marriage is going to impact someone's life is a mystery to me. It all comes down to a "my way or the highway" mentality!

That judge is violating the U.S Constitution by taking the power of the peoples votes... Same sex marriage isn't protected under the U.S Constitution! Obviously it wouldn't be controversial if it was! The founders wouldn't have supported same sex anything because it fell under the "Sodomy Law" that was in effect until the Liberal party was formed in the late 1800's.. The dictionary clearly defines Marriage as 1 man & 1 woman in holy matrimony... So in reality Government really has no say in marriage because it comes from the church! Churches are against homosexuality (unless they're 501C3).....

It's alright enjoy it while it lasts lol The American Resistance will return America back to the Good Moral Country we used to be with the soon to come 2nd American Revolution!! GOD BLESS AMERICA & THE AMERICAN PATRIOTS

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's antipathy toward the Obama's administration is evident: She can take that wagging finger and sit on it and spin.

She is a has been, dried up OLD HAG.

Most of the Tea Party haggs are like Janet Brewer anyway.

There a few haggs in Glendora, California too!

Let me show you how you are wrong

I could create a bill ( easy to do in California ) that denies the rights of blue eyed people to vote, passed by the majority of brown eyed people.

it would be deemed unconstitutional, even if it passed

the same thing here, the problem is we allow such unconstitutional bills to be voted upon in the first place, that proposition should have been struck down before going to the vote.

Gay people being married ( 18,000 legal marriages in the state so far that I am aware of ) has certainly not hurt my marriage in any way, if yours is so fragile that it hurt yours, perhaps you should be looking elsewhere as to what the issue with your marriage is.

Stan Wong of Glendoraq, California was working in the redevelopment department of the City of Rosemead, California before all this Tran & developer stuff took off and hit the police reports and headlines in newspapers.

All of a sudden Stan Wong of Glendora quits his position in Rosemead, was Stan Wong involved from the beginning with Tran?

The lawsuit also alleges that Tran physically grabbed Ms. Gong and attempted to hold and kiss her against her will.

Tran set about a retaliatory course of action due to Ms. Gong's refusal to accede to Tran's demands for personal loans and sexual overtures.

Don't bother. He's a retarded jesus freak and according to him America should be run by the bible and become a theocracy where only white Christian males have rights.

Iím not a gay person but I believe we all have equal rights under our Constitution. When the Mormon church gets out and spends millions of dollars promoting the LGBT community and marriage equality for them, then I will believe they have changed.
