Looks like you're correct again, Aerobatty...<quoted text>
...Gays can't marry ANOTHER GAY OF THE SAME GENDER in most states.
But you knew what I meant....
Same-sex marriage appears to be banned or 'not legal' in more than 30 states. What an embarrassment for the USA. It'd be better for the USA to lead the way than have to be led.
I'm not up on US law on the matter, but maybe Pres Obama's statement indicates that the USA will now enter the 21st century in regard to gay rights and treat them with the equality they deserve. Now we just have to wait for the USA to catch-up in regard to atheists and regard us as well too....
"The latest survey, from June, found that 54 percent of those asked said they would vote a "well- qualified" atheist into the Oval Office the highest percentage since Gallup began asking the question in 1958, when only 18 percent said they would back a nonbeliever."
Only 54%? Still a long way to go.
Happily for all, there are signs that the USA is getting there. More young people than ever are 'non-religious' which is an advance. Let's hope more reject superstition altogether.
"Despite changing attitudes, though, polls continue to show that atheists are ranked lower than any other minority or religious group when Americans are asked whether they would vote for or approve of their child marrying a member of that group."
Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology
