As Baez Galib said before leaving office, "...Washington handles that..."

What??????

The populetes don't want to step on the Catholic Church's toes after their 1960 quarrel.

"Suze Orman Threatens To Leave Florida For Marriage Equality In California"

"Currently I am a resident of Florida … and I have substantial wealth and I pay substantial taxes," Orman said on MSNBC's "Now With Alex Wagner."

"I would be more than happy to move to New York or California if I could get married and be recognized on a federal level," she continued. "Because I want to live in a state that validates me, and I would validate them with my money."

But not every gay couple will have the means to pick up and move. And if there was a mass exodus of gay couples from states like Florida, what would that do to the already slow progress of the rights movement in those states?

Florida still doesn't have statewide civil protections on the basis of sexual orientation, doesn't even recognize domestic partnerships on a statewide level, and just approved adoption by gay parents as recently as 2010.

"Coming to Florida was like stepping back in time 20 years," John Hooker, who has been with the same partner for 23 years, told HuffPost Live

What are you doing in Florida then, if you voluntarily moved there from New York?

California is the place to go for everyone who left their own states.

Marriage is a matter that is up to each state and territory. Baez Galib was wrong, it is not a Federal matter although some aspects of gay rights could be a Federal matter (ie: military spouse/dependent privileges).

Many of the current batch of colonists are pushing for gay marriage on the island - Bhatia, Hernandez Denton, etc.

They are not pushing anything, just their anti statehood agenda.

Not even Harlem Yulín, who doesnt need any concensus from the state's executive and the legislative, has lifter a finger with a pro LGBTT city project, like the ones in NYC, Miami Beach and San Fco. to name a few.

Puerto Rico's colonialist govts are macho oriented; these did the same with women issues and island racism.

If it is up to the state than there is no legal marriage because a married couple in NY who moves to Florida is no longer married and has no rights.

If slavery was left to each state to decide than much of the south would still have slavery .

If states now decide what they want than it not even a country anymore.
The fed gvmt is here for a reason.

I do agree that Ca was the place to go and looking back on it I would have prefered Ca but Florida is changing, however if I ever wanted to get married I would leave for NY but the marriage is still a joke if one of the party leaves the state.

You would be surprised how many Dems who leave the north before retirement come here and this is why the state is no longer in the GOP pocket when it comes to federal elections.

All the transplants I have met here and never one from Ca.

Like everyone here ,I vote on alot of issues with pro-choice, consumer rights being some of my top and other than Yankee transplants , you can forget about most Hispanic and Black Dems in the state voting in state elections.

Ca from what I hear is not like that.

Than the women have to rise up and become a political machine. I actually vote on womens issues as priority because those types of politicians are the politicos I like.

Look at Miami CongressWoman Ileana Ros Lehtinen , due to her daughter becoming a son she is now pseudo pro-gay (keep status quo) but rabidly anti-choice for women ,I would never vote for her and think any gay man that does has no right to complain about equality.

The Log Cabin "I hate women" hypocrites come to mind.

The military only honors legal marriage so two men or women living together in Ft.Sill, Okl are not considered married and the military has no option other than agree.

The same two men in Ft Drum, NY are.

USA can not allow itself to be a country with colonies that have their own laws as far as equality goes.

BTW , if you are against gay marriage, I have ZERO problem with that and I understand your view , My fathers side of the family here are completely against it but to allow each state to decide this doesn't work.

Great attitude to have. Changes will happen. I consider it a done deal.

You will get more with attitude than than being a gay Nazi.

Nobody likes things pushed on them.

This is partly the reason why there was such a visceral against reaction against "affimative action" in the 80's.

Where we will part on this is that i firmly believe that God will decide things in the end.(This world is temporary). I don't have a dog in the race. So, it doesn't matter much to me in the end.

Buy, you don't push things on posters, G. That is why people like you eventually get more results.

Oh! and you like fundamentalists deciding when is the right time and the right way?

ROTFLMAO!

Get over your fundamentalist hate, tampon.

Your son and daughters will be gay and there's nothing you can do about it!

I agree.

As soon as Cuomo passed it. It was only a matter of time.

NY is in the forefront. California will be next. Then so goes the the rest of the nation.

This collapse of morals was predicted in the bible. Nothing should be a surprise.

Didn't you post a couple of days ago that you wanted us to have civil unions only?

If its "inevitable" then why insist?

A civil union is like being "a little pregnant" or "being in favor of SOME gay rights..."

Either you're for full rights or against LGBTT rights, but a partial application for some of us just doesnt make any sense.

Flip flop, flip flop, flip flop and now you're beating your own time record.

Before it took you a whole day to flip flop on your beliefs, now its just a matter of an hour or so....

You seem prepared for a gay son and two lesbian daughters, if you ask me.

They'll be ok with your consistent flip flop.
