Those AGs just LOVE to pander to stupid people, don't they? And they wonder why there are so many lawyer jokes floating around....

Fewer and fewer of them with each passing casket. Hopefully yours is already paid for and ready to be used.

Fewer and fewer desperate closet cases these days.

Besides, some queer jokes are perfectly okay.(Not the ones that satiate your need to deny your psychosexual issues.)

Q. What's the hardest part about using a Macintosh computer?

A. Telling your father that you're gay.

(Naturally Rush L. uses Macs. That either makes the joke funnier or less funny, depending.)

The multitude of lawyers who represent gay interests will be interested in knowing how the homosexuals really feel about them.
If you are straight, the gays will accept your help. They will celebrate their victories and sing Kumbaya with you. But behind your back, they will still hate you, because they are the real haters.

The AGs referred to are the buybull thumping, in so many words, ones representing anti lgbt "arguments." They don't need to be told what lgbt people and str8 allies think of them.

It appears you could not understand the first thing about this article, much as with your own sexuality. You appear to be a fifteen year old who is particularly stoopit for his age.

Given what is going on in the USA and the rest of the world, I find it amazing that such priority is given to whether 2 consenting adults of the same sex can live together or not.
Even more amazing is the fact that this is something that needs governmental regulation.
You people have really got to get your priorities in line.

The issue is not "living together." You're mixed up.

You don't seem to understand that governments confer benefits and legal rights, and enforces them, and therefore the government will have a role in administering who qualifies for them in the first place.

And don't try to pretend that courts which settle divorces and legal disputes are not part of the government.

_Of course_ governments need to be involved in marriage.

This is so much like the Jim Crow laws.... Laws that allow discrimination are unconstitutional....

Governments ... maybe.
Religious political action committees ... definitely NOT.
And since the two are becoming the same thing (which goes against the Constitution)... I don't think my point is 'mixed up.'

No, you're definitely mixed up. It's not about "living together," it's about legal rights and government benefits.

If the government doesn't regulate marriage - what it is, who may marry, what benefits it affords - who will? The couple involved? We tried that with child brides, etc.

The only other answer besides "government," is religions...as marriage used to be controlled by.

I don't think you have the slightest idea what you're saying. "Governments...maybe. "

Unless you want to explain what it is your being so coy about.

My point, which you missed entirely was that priorities are way out of whack.
You obviously like the government controlling your life. Enjoy.
