i'm so proud of Spain, and so disappointed in the US. yet again.

what made the USA great -- our dynamism -- is slowly ebbing away, and other countries are making an embarassment of us.

USA -- let's do better. let's join the 21st century instead of regressing into the 19th.

another thought: doesn't this give added incentive for gay people to leave the United States? i'm talking about doctors, lawyers, scientists, artists, writers ... much of our homegrown talent (and, yes, much of our talent in the arts especially is gay) might depart for more hospitable climates. we've always been the most welcoming country on earth, we've been open and accepting of anyone from (almost) anywhere because we do a good job of letting people become who they want to be, and these immigrants pay the USA back tenfold (think Einstein) with both their accomplishments and the depth and richness they add to that indefinable thing called American culture.

now, what if Einstein were gay? what if there is a gay Einstein who is married and wants to work or immigrate in the U.S.? what if an employer or university over here is eager for his skills and ability? our immigration services won't recognize his spouse -- so what is to happen? are we to have a policy of family break-up in immigration policy? a policy of refusing to let foreign gay couples immigrate? or what if Einstein were Spanish and his husband was American, would only one get to live here and the other be forced to live in Spain?

we're shooting ourselves in the foot.

Would that more countries would give in to the homosexualist agenda.

In 50 years, I think kids will look back on our time and wonder who these backwards people were, sort of how we wonder today about the racists of the south.

Who are you to question God?

If he wanted us to mix
he would not have made different races.

I was watching a segment on the news last night about this http://www.newyorkblade.com/2005/7-1/arts/main/mtv2.cfm

Of course some groups are saying it would be bad for our children.

And yet those groups have yet to show exactly how that'd be true...as always.

to Irvine's post, too. We can be so stubborn sometimes, which can be a benefit in some cases...and a curse in others, like this one. I hope the day will come when America joins up with countries like Canada and Spain and them on this issue, and I hope it will come soon.
