Good luck!

I'm not optimistic about this. I think Australia is still 10-15 yrs away from passing Marriage Equality.

You're on a roll today buddy. There 'may' be a significant population decrease in the world by that time. It's out of my hands and the work of many faces of eVil. We turned our back on common sense, the moral question, and the earth once at the the hands of the natives and twice by the industrial revolution.

Materiality versus spirituality.

OK. Be that way.

Just don't be so "spiritual", as our ancestors were, that we don't learn to properly steward this planet.

So do something different.

Did you buy a LIVE tree for Xmas and plant it out in the countryside this year?

Have you re-insulated your home with phenolic foam insulation so that you don't NEED as much heating and cooling? Have you added double or triple paned windows to your North-facing walls? Sheetrock is the cheapest building material you can buy aside from spackle, tape and paint. And you can do it one room at a time.

Did you cut back on your automobile usage? Bicycles work well in the warm months.

How many battery-operated items do you use?

Have you replaced all your lights with low energy LEDs and flourescents?

Do you still flush your toilet with expensively purified drinking water? How about a small replumbing job so that a few gallons of your laundry 2nd rinse water is saved for this purpose instead?

How many things have you purchased that were shipped from far away, rather than made as locally as possible, with local materials?

There's LOTS that you can do without grossly impacting your lifestyle.

Even in plumbing all male 'adapters' go into the female 'fittings'. Otherwise the whole house leaks.
Imagine that....

Hey dumbsht, none of you "anti sodomy" freaks have passed laws preventing them from marrying, adopting, being arbitrarily fired.

Okay, you stupid, racist, anti Semitic, misogynisitic, homophobic pos?

Now get help for what regarding your homosexual fixation is merely your sexual problem.

1. An antique "feather" tree, homemade ornaments and no lights.
2. Yes, as is needed to replace the old.
3. No north facing walls, also half of that is closet space so it provides a nice 'airlock' affect to the bedrooms (which are closed during the day).
4. Yes.
6. Less auto usage, a bicycle won't accommodate my husband's wheelchair though.
7. Uh, oh. Not too many.
8. Yes, long ago.
9. Didn't know you could do that! However an old 2 liter soda bottle filled with tap water and placed in the tank cuts down on the amount of water used;0)
10. Working on it, I prefer a good piece of solid antique furniture, an old 'camper's' coffee pot, and old vintage baskets will store just about anything anywhere :)))

Many people say that the Bible says Man was created in God's image.

So where did the blueprints for women come from?

LMAO

In any case it's sort of sad know that in 2014 you will still be equating your Mom and everyone else's mom to bitches at puppy mills.

Sad.

Well you are the world's biggest lie so I guess you can be forgiven for the fib.

In Indiana in 1997 the people who you claim never asked for special rights passed a law that will put clergy in jail if in practising their faith they bless a SSM.

32 States passed special rights laws to "protect traditional marriage".

Thing is the pattern they used (the Federal DOMA) has been declared ILLEGAL.

Hence the decision in Utah and many more in 2014.

Happy New Year!
