Congratulations!!! This is a step back for Carlsbad, New Mexico and the whole US. If you want to be together then do it. You shouldn't have to post a news story about it. That is my main problem with gays is they think they need to force their beliefs down our throats.

Nobody's forcing anything, they just want to be afforded the same rights as straight people. They deserve to be miserably married just like us straight folks! Lol

In short, if you don't like gay marriage, don't marry someone of your same sex. In the mean time, let everyone else decide who they want to love and marry and stay out of it.

The one on the left looks just like my boys ex wife who has tried gettin back with him on 4 different occasions since their divorce from what I've gotten out of it. Even told me on one accation was in fact 4 days prior to this wedding or what have you.. Goes to show you how trusting one can be behind pass coded phones I'm sure.... Now lets wait and see the outburst of the first gay marriage divorce in carlsbad whoohoooo.... Since the argus publishes this as proper I bet it will not publish the ending of a gay marriage...

sorry erica...but cant back you up here....i cannot condemn you or your partner....but the fact that you choose a lesbian lifestyle means that you turn your back on God....and his regulations....and for Dave Rogers to perform the ceremonies proves what ive believed all along....that he is not a true christian but a weed sown among the wheat....someone who misleads the flock that follows him and out of fear of man and convenience does what he does....sure Jesus said "he who is without sin cast the first stone" but then he told the prostitute that to go and sin no more....and the apostle paul as well as other bible writers under inspiration from the Christ and God the father condemned anykind of sex outside of marriage....this of course included homosexuality....by compromising christianity in this matter you give another foothold to Satan and his workings into undermining holiness which belongs to Gods people....sure im not and anyone else is not perfect so we should not cast stones....just tell it like it is....but as a man of the cloth and compromising on many things condemned in the bible you prove that you are only in it for the money.....i wish you would use some of it to buy you a new pair of shoes.....i would be embarrassed to have you ministering in those attrocious shoes you had on.....

Talking about shoes.. Did u exactly take a look at the one on the right. My god is it a future drag queen maybe or do I need to get my eyes checked. Sorta makes me want to slap my boy for losing his wife to that whatever u call it. And again both should have wore pants as I see the legs.... Looks like shreks wife Fiona in a white form... And pastor should be put in ICP.. ( in church suspension) like a kid in ISS in school..

So true that girl aint guna have jack in a few months speaking on a knowledge of it.... I know there are a few kids involved can you image the future they have to face.... They are already seeing the ineqaulties of a that woman.... Imagine the thoughts and judgemental comments they will see in the future... The innocent are always the first to suffer.... Poor kids. Is sickening to see such an impractical person try and be mommy, or a partner in life
