The Supreme Court paved the way for same-sex marriages in California, but avoided making a broad ruling on the issue, in a decision Wednesday on the state's anti-gay marriage Proposition 8.
In the wake of the ruling, California Gov. Jerry Brown said that he had directed his administration to tell counties they must begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples as soon as a lower court takes care of a procedural step.

.Gay marriage: Prop. 8 and DOMA
The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, ruling that legally married same-sex couples are entitled to the same rights as all other married couples. The court also opened the door for same-sex marriages to resume in California by turning away the defenders of the state's Proposition 8.
On June 28, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals lifted its stay on an injunction which ordered state officials to stop enforcing Prop, 8, Within hours both couples who were plaintiffs in the case had wed.
You did see STATE wide didn't you?

Wrong no new born child can not talk. Homosexuality is not a choice.

Not a matter of belief, matter of fact.
and the District of Columbia
That is 14 states ( not counting DC which also has same sex marriage ), there are 50 states, 50 -14 = 36
Are you not aware that California is preforming same sex marriages as we type here, you dont get to count California in your list anymore, you lost that one along with New Mexico this year.
More are coming
I dont happen to be a homosexual myself, but I am an American and support justice, equality and freedom.
If you are counting either California or New Mexico it shows just how low you have to stoop, you have to lie to bolster your numbers, that is an admission of defeat.
So you have gone from 50 to 36 and dropping ( OR, AZ, MI and several others are now in play )

Being a BIGOT is a choice, nice job

Trying to teach a pig to sing? I give you credit for trying, but they's just not edumacatimable.
#212793 Aug 28, 2013
Conversion therapy is not a joke. We have heard many testimonies in the past few months where homosexuals have found Christ as their Savior and Lord of their lives and have become free of their sins and now have normal families. This applies to any sin that anyone is involved in which can be forgiven through Christ. You gays out there will NEVER know what true Christians are talking about because it is obious with your behavior that you DO NOT have the Holy Spirit within you. I would just give Christ a chance in your lives, for you will be surprised what the Holy Spirit can do for you in overcoming your sin like anyone that has any sin in their lives.

Then I guess alcoholism, drug addiction, arson, beastiality, etc. are not a choice either , huh? That's why this gay lifestyle acceptance has only opened the door to ANY disorder that wants to seek 'equality'.
#212795 Aug 28, 2013
At what age did you make the choice to be straight? Well if you care to look you will find that Alcholism can behereditary . As far as arson, thats an act of violence. Your choice of beastiality is yours.

I have been reading some of these posts for 3 weeks now and the only ones that have any meaning whatsoever is the people who have Christ in their lives. The people out there that are gay or support gays are just ignorant in what the Bible teaches or they twist everything around to fit into their lifestyles. Well, you can twist whatever you want to twist, but God will not tolerate it and you will have to answer to Him someday face to face and personnally, that would be very scarry!! When you start taking Scriptures out to fit the way you want to live, then alot of you will be taking so much out that there will be nothing left for you to read in the Scriptures. The Scriptures were left for us to read and Study, so we would know how to live a Spiritual Life and be happy as God intended us to be. It seems that anyone out there that even mentions God or Christ, they get slammed by people which I really do not feel is a discussion like this forum was set up to be, it is slamming people around and calling people names which is unacceptable. What kind of discussion do you have when you are calling names or putting people down anyway?

LOL, so true
There was never a choice for me, I was straight. I had been around Homosexuals for many years when I was younger.
There was never a choice for me, I was straight, why would it be any different for them?
#212798 Aug 28, 2013
um, yeah. 36.
#212799 Aug 28, 2013
deb, you may want to check with exodus international. you may want to check with the state of california and new jersey, since they've recently enacted laws making it illegal to perform "conversion therapy" on a minor due it's ineffectivity and the harm it does to the recipients.

you really do need to sit down, take the time, and read the court documents that include the arguments from both sides of the issue. you'd find that the 14th amendment's guarantees of due process equal protection were used and upheld in the court's decisions.
additionally, there are dozens of other cases across america in many states with similar issues at question. one by one, my friend, those state bans will fall.
