I agree that this is the correct step, however I also feel it is ridiculous to allow people to vote for something and then completely ignore it. The people should have more of a voice than a government. People want to be bigots and vote against homosexual marriage, so be it. The people don't want homosexual marriage, that's the way it should be until more people stop being bigots. Too bad, it's a democracy. So even though I support same sex marriage, it's complete crap that the people aren't being listened to.

Cheetos and soda are highly processed, empty calories that are devoid of any nutritional value and should be avoided at all cost. Please consider lean protein sources, limited quantities of complex carbohydrates, healthy fats such as nuts and olive oil, and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables for good health!

27 When he fixed the heavens firm, I was there, when he drew a circle on the surface of the deep,

31 at play everywhere on his earth, delighting to be with the children of men.

How can you judge things of faith, when the ability to deal with facts evades you?

<quoted text>Did you know that most western holidays are of Pagan origin, as opposed to religious (or Christian) origin? Christmas and Easter, for example, have more to do with Paganism than Christianity, as currently celebrated. You might find the origins of these holidays interesting if you research them. The religious aspects came "later". Surprisingly, the origins of Halloween are more religious than Christmas and Easter.
Of course Christmas and Easter come 'later'. They celebrate events that happened 'later'.

Just a heads up idiot, those 'later' events are what they celebrate.

Do you think before you speak???

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

I suspect you struggle with anal sex because when you stimulate your prostrate, you get knocked out too.

The only one in denial here is you, same sex couple are also married.

You don't protect marriage you attack marriage, you hate their marriages.

I protect marriage, I defend marriage against troglodytes like you.

I do have hope that someday you will accept marriage, but I wont let you define my marriage, nor theirs. You are simply not that important.

Faith is for weak minded brainwashed ignorant Nazi pigs like you...I DEAL IN FACTS AND TRUTH....You should try it you would not be an insane freak anymore.

Faith in a 2000 year old cult is stupid and shows your a ignorant child.

Clearly you are incapable of comprehending the passage. It is about wisdom as the basis of creation, not faith.

Like I said, of you are incapable of dealing with fact, how in hell can you deal with faith?

No wisdom and having to have faith in 2000 year old cult..In fact trusting in the buybull like you do shows mental illness and ignorance.

I ONLY DEAL IN FACT. That is why the buybull and your Nazi cult hold nothing for me since there is no fact there..

OK I GIVE YOU ONCE CHANCE...PROVE YOUR GOD IS REAL.....HARDOCRE ROCK SOLID PROOF YOUR GOD IS REAL....If you cant do that then there is no fact there.

Dismissing fact is delusional. Same sex couples are still legally married, and marrying, in California, and the federal government recognizes each one.

Denying reality is never a healthy choice, so why do you persist?
