<quoted text>Wrong, we are up to 37 states and still rising.
New Mexico is not a SSM state, but you know, that but would rather lie. All New Mexico has to do is change their marriage laws in those two counties, to make them same sex exclusive. You know, that is called a state DOMA.
DOMA was a federal mandate, BTW shot down. You see the Federal Government can not define marriage, that is a state issue. Btw DOMA was shot down. In case you missed it Same sex Marriage is legal in 14 states as well as Washington DC, oh and BTW DOMA was shot down. Its like talking to an infant.

I have read alot of your posts and I do not believe that you are on the forum to discuss like alot of the people on the forum. It seems as though you want to argue or call people names. It would certainly be nice if people out there could somehow find a way to respect each others opinions. Is this the way you treat your family? People that do these things are usually very unhappy about their lives and hurt others. Make a change in your life and ask Christ to come into your life and you will never regret what the Holy Spirit can do for you.
Yes. I agree. Jizzy (aka Sameolddummy) needs Jesus in his life real bad.

No you are not, you are ignoring the marriages licenses that are being presented in New Mexico
Yes it is, it was 50 states a few years ago that did not recognize SSM, it was 38 at the beginning of this year now it is 36
Not an opinion... a fact
36, 37, yes it is, no it's not. 50 states bla bla bla. Oy vey!

LOL!!! Fundie 101. When unable to support your arguments, label your opponents as "angry". Your routine is tired, just like your unsupported drivel. Must suck to go through life being as lame and desperate as you are.

For over 200 years blacks lost the slavery fight, so even if this evil of humanity were to prevail, it would not be sustained.
Gays must not believe in evolution. If they did, they could not think that after 200,000 years, in 2013 for the first time societies are addressing same sex marriages. It along with pet marriages have always been a bad idea. This despite the fact that a number of Egyptian queens regarded their cats as royalty and deified them.
All gays can hope for is blind ignorance and straights who are homophobes and will vote for SSM just to avoid contact with them.
Gays are humans, marriage is defined, although both noble, they do not co-mingle. Homosexuality is a behavior, mutable and changeable or should we say fluid. They know this.
BTW it looks like HI will go before the end of the year, you will have lost 3 states in one year and be down to 35 soon... not bad.

Prop 8 was shot down by a Federal Judge, that was upheld by the Court of appeals. SCOTUS shot the case down, due to lack of standing. That ruling then returned it back to the Federal Judge. Now as you can see California's Supreme Court stands by the Federal Judge. EVERY county in California has to issue marriage licences. NO if's and's or but's. Its the law sunshine.
"California's Supreme Court on Tuesday denied the San Diego County clerk's request to immediately halt same-sex marriages in the state, the latest, if not necessarily last, key ruling in a years-long legal fight.
The decision was announced in a brief ruling, which said: "The request for an immediate temporary stay or injunctive relief is denied."

Completely unsupported statement. You seem to be full of those.

You do not even have 100% acceptance of homosexuality among gays.
Another completely unsupported statement. Oh, and just by the way dear, the only acceptance of homosexuality I'm concerned with is my own. Your acceptance and anyone else's is neither requested or required. You are unimportant.

Jesus told them not to judge others, that is how you can tell if you are talking to an actual follower of Jesus or not.

Jesus didnít say anything at all about same sex marriage.

Go on. Tell me "no" when I buy another yellow sportscar because you happen to not like fast cars sporting the colors of the mighty dandelion.

It's none of your business sunshine to tell same sexed couples not to marry.
