A federal judge in California has knocked down the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, ruling Wednesday that the state's controversial Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

There are nearly 200 countries currently in the world.

The 92% of the world population opposes calling ss couples married.

Not ONE single culture has ever called ss couples married from start to finish. Every single culture has recognized marriage.

You were saying...

SSM has sustained itself. The proof is in it's growth and following. I myself was against it not that long ago but it only makes logical sense to allow it.
You're free to play the dickass loser and be against it. No one cares. Shit jackass - join the Westboro Baptist Church for that matter as part of their new Italian American liason for that matter. You're but a fly splattered on the windshield of history once this story is over.
Gays marrying will take place in more and more states as time marches on and will be no more than a non-issue eventually.
Sorry to pop your hymen, but history is massively against you.

Ss couples will only ever be a mutually sterile pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.

A fake imposter relationship will only be more exposed, the closer it gets to marriage. Even a child knows that. Especially when they are mom and dad.

Smirk.

Is it "progression" or simply a passing phase? Why hasn't SSM sustained itself? SSSB is not new, nor is recognized same sex unions, albeit I limited in time and place. Yet SSM never took root to the point where it was self sustaining within the society that allowed it. Are we to think it will now?
My guess, and it's only a guess, is that same-sex marriage hasn't been "self sustaining" because of religious fundamentalism.

Thankfully, we're seeing extremist religions go the way of the dinosaur.

I used the example earlier of how women are more independent, career focused, and even dress differently (they wear pants), than ever before. This represents a shift in societal acceptance of women's roles that I don't believe will ever change again.

I think that our societies are beginning to finally embrace the fact that homosexuality is not a disorder. And if we aren't disordered, then we should be allowed to have access to legally marrying our partners.

I don't think we'll ever go back to a time where homosexuality is seen as taboo and unnatural.

That's my opinion.

Well, if you ask the millions of straight and gay people who practice anal sex, I guess you'll find that you can fit a bent rod in a straight hole after all.

That's reality.

Religion has never stopped a horrific list of behaviors. But it did calling ss couples married?

It appears that most of Europe is worried about being overrun by religious fundamentalism.

Because that would be the proper way to define marriage throughout the nation. If that is what one desires to do, and 3/4th's of the States agree. Try reading the Constitution, you might be surprised by what's in it, though I bet you would be even more surprised by what isn't..
<quoted text>
30%? You aren't any better at math than you are at law. It's 26%. 28% if you think DC really matters.
<quoted text>
Right may in fact be right, but your right may not be the right of another- this country used to provide us the freedom to choose.
My 30% quote is a figure is a factual statement. The other numbers include:

--Over 41% of the U.S. population lives in a state with either marriage or a broad legal status such as civil union or domestic partnership.
--Over 43% of the U.S. population lives in a state that provides some form of protections for gay couples.

RE: your comment about the freedom to choose... We have made a choice. And the choice that people are making is that same-sex couples should have the right to marry and the LGBT citizens should be treated equally under the law.

There is nothing horrific about being gay.

And I guess you're talking about Europe's fear of Muslims. Is it a rational fear that is based in fact? Or is it just a bunch of people who spend way too much time believing that they have the right to inflict themselves onto other people?

Yes, I justify it. And you are fascinated with it.

I am not trying to force people to have anal sex. See how that works? I'm not trying to inflict my personal beliefs onto anyone.

You, however, are trying to force people to stop having anal sex. You're attempting to impose your personal beliefs onto others.

That's the difference between you and me.

You think you know what's best for everyone and I think people are pretty much capable of deciding for themselves.

Good luck on your anti-ass mission. I can't wait to see what kind of poem you create for your campaign.

There's a contradiction in that last paragraph. Are you arguing for SSCs to marry, technically to have their relationships called "marriage", or BGLT folks to be treated equally under the law? To be treated equally would imply same treatment. Thus a lesbian woman and a straight woman should be treated the same regardless of sexual attraction.

I'm arguing both issues... Gay people should be able to marry the consenting, unrelated, adult that they choose--just like heterosexuals. And LGBT people should be able to go to work, get housing, and not face legal discrimination based on their orientation.

As you probably know, many states have no laws that would prevent an employer from firing a person simply because he or she is gay. They can come right out and say, "We have learned that you are homosexual. Our company's founder is a Christian (so-called). And he/she does not want gay people to interact with customers. Your services are no longer required here, please leave the premises."

You can be denied housing and a variety of many other services simply because a provider learns of your orientation.

This kind of blatant discrimination should not be tolerated and should be illegal. You couldn't do it to a black person or a woman or a person in a wheelchair. Why should you be able to do it to a gay person?

Glendora's planning department and city manager must be on a real drunken binge to have even allowed this type of construction to continue.

Replacing homes with homes makes nosense since the land is already occupied.

Start filling up the buildings in Glendora that are still sitting vacant.

The cities employees in city hall keep allow builder's to build JUNK in Glendora, California that no one wants to buy or use.

Why "unrelated"? What harm would it cause you if I married my sister? Don't try to tell me we are already related. So are first cousins yet they are allowed to marry in many states.

Are you a hypocrite?

...many straight marriages are "sterile". Are they then not married??
"Duplicate gendered"??? LOL!!! As long as there are 2 consenting adults in the marriage it's complete. How and when they find intimacy is no more your business than if you were to beat on the door of your 80 something year old neighbors and inquire if they use more than 4 Viagra pills a week.
Children are better off in a loving family than one in which mom and dad think their offspring are nothing more than moving piñatas. These kids can identify with nurturing,love and caring, all qualities gay parents can possess as equally as straight parents.
Hey - it's your opinion gays cannot form marriages.
We get it. Stupid opinion but you own it.

Same sex marriages bring forth the basic fundamentalism which the sanctity and union of marriage acknowledges as it's crux and base in that gay unions also hold the integral elements of mutual attraction, intimacy and the willingness to commit to a legally binding agreement formatted on a two party grouping of adults which in no way is dependent on procreation given that individual facet is not a requirement towards the obtainment of a recognized joining of the dual parties involved.
--DAMN!!!

LOL!!!!
It's so funny when you attempt eloquence. Do it some more! "crux and base" "binding agreement formatted" "individual facet" "obtainment of a recognized joining of the dual parties involved."

YUK!YUK!YUK! You're killin' us! "...the basic fundamentalism which is the sanctity.." "two party grouping of adults" Too funny!
