Surely Fox News has these stats somewhere, right?
My coworker would be one of those that believes we're on this route. Because SSM is a vile, disgusting act, what is to stop us from marrying our brother or cat?

It's not even worth talking to people like this anymore. As with any religious/god debate, their answers always change. In this case, the argument of consent is now being thrown out.

The next law to change regarding marriage is that of consent or incest with allowing SSM.

Scary days are ahead of us indeed!!! haha

Happy for those in the new states that allow SSM

Yeah, BEAL, I've heard a few people saying the same thing. Just bitter losers talking-their time of trying to control people's lives is ending and they just don't know how to handle it.

I loved those links. Couples together for 20 plus years, people tearing up at being able to marry their loved ones, children happy to see their parents happy and able to marry their loved ones, families showing up for support. military people able to participate in a freedom/right that they fought for...

Yeah. What a truly horrible, evil, doomsday setting in those pictures, right, anti-gay marriage people? If people look at those pictures and feel angry or scared instead of happy for those couples, I have to conclude they have black, cold spaces where their hearts should be.

Congratulations to the people of Washington state who've been married thus far! Very happy for all of them, may they have many wonderful years together! Also, I heard stories about...West Point, I believe, conducting its first same-sex marriage ceremony recently, so yay for that, too.

He compared "sodomy" to murder recently.

As in, if you can't object to "sodomy" than how can you object to murder? Will all morality itself collapse if the gays get married?

http://mobile.slate.com/blogs/xx_fac...e_says_so.html

He seems to think so.

My guess: Roberts and Kennedy go with the liberals on this one, deciding that the states decide and that federal benefits must be extended to couples married.

SCOTUS doesn't want another Roe, but they see the polls and they know that homophobes are literally dying ('cause they are old) and Roberts is going to be around for a long, long time, and he wants to get this one right.

I do think that Scalia did gay rights a huge favor.

Who would want to share an opinion with him. Clarence Thomas, ok,
Will Alito want to go with him, too?

I also think Roberts, will join with Kennedy and the rest.

Scalia compares sodomy to murder: Why? Because he says so.

He seems to think so.


Well, Scalia, let's see, on this end we have a couple that's madly in love and wants to be married and live a happy, quiet life together. On the other end we have someone who wants to, say, stab someone to death and hack up their body, robbing their family of a loved one for all eternity and making life miserable for everyone.

Yeah. I can easily see where the two are so comparable, sure. Fucking dumbass.

Yeah, I think the second part of your post in particular is absolutely right. I'd like to think they vote for it simply because it's the right thing to do and not because of polls, but eh, that's politics for you, and so whatever their reason, if they vote in favor of rights for gay couples that's the most important thing. Here's hoping.

You really do get the sense with Roberts that he is about legacy. He'd love to have a Warren-type court to leave behind. No way does he get on the wrong side of the law and history here. I would be very shocked if this wasn't in the bag. At that point you don't even need Kennedy, though he'll probably give in because it's the easier of the two decisions and he's not exactly shown himself to stand by the courage of his convictions.

I don't trust Alito as far as I can spit. Worst appointment to the court in a long time, particularly when you take into account his age.

I have no reason to believe Alito will not stay in the stone age, except I am thinking his age and middling intellect may cause him to not want to go down in history as such a bigoted ass hat.


before June 2013, we will have more of this,

Britain's Conservatives to propose legalizing same-sex marriage

By Henry Chu

10:00 AM PST, December 11, 2012

LONDON – Championing a cause eschewed by fellow conservatives elsewhere, the British government said Tuesday it will sponsor a bill to allow same-sex couples to marry, including in churches, synagogues and mosques that look favorably on such unions.

Religious organizations against the idea would be legally protected from having to wed gays and lesbians, and the Church of England, as the nation’s established church, would specifically be barred. But civil marriage would be available to all couples under the new proposal.

“For some, this is contentious, a radical reform or, indeed, a reform too far,” said Maria Miller, the Conservative Party government minister who unveiled the plan in Parliament. “But the historical facts show that, over the generations, marriage has had a long history of evolution. ... For me, extending marriage to same-sex couples will strengthen, not weaken, this vital institution.”

The bill is likely to be introduced next month and voted on sometime later in the new year. Although church groups and some lawmakers have spoken out vehemently against opening up marriage to same-sex couples, polls show that a majority of Britons support the idea, and the legislation is almost certain to pass.

If so, Britain would become the latest European country to give gay and lesbian residents the right to get hitched. Marriage for same-sex couples is already possible in the Netherlands and Denmark, as well as in the predominantly Roman Catholic nations of Spain and Portugal. Lawmakers in France are expected to approve a bill authorizing gay marriage in the coming months.

The proposal in Britain is unusual because the sponsoring government lies on the right of the political spectrum. Supporters of marriage equality were delighted last year when Prime Minister David Cameron declared at a party conference: “I don’t support gay marriage despite being a Conservative. I support gay marriage because I’m a Conservative.”

That stance, however, is far from universal within his party. On this issue, the most vociferous dissent in Parliament is not coming from the opposition Labor Party or the junior governing party, the Liberal Democrats, both of which are expected to back the bill overwhelmingly, but from Cameron’s own Conservative backbenchers.

“These proposals are a constitutional outrage and disgrace,” thundered one Tory member of Parliament, Stewart Jackson. “There is no electoral mandate for these policies.”

Other Conservatives accused Cameron and Miller of arrogance, religious intolerance and something close to sacrilege in pressing ahead with marriage equality for same-sex couples.

As many as 100 Tory lawmakers in the 650-seat House of Commons, including members of Cameron’s own Cabinet, could vote against the measure. But there are also senior party figures in Cameron’s corner, including former Prime Minister John Major.

To try to assuage the fears of some religious organizations, Miller said the bill would contain a “quadruple lock” of safeguards to guarantee that no religious groups would be compelled to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies against their will.


For example, only a religious institution’s overall governing body would be able to decide whether the organization will “opt in” on marrying gay couples. If it decides not to, individual ministers within that group could not take it upon themselves to perform such ceremonies.

More controversially, the bill will explicitly forbid same-sex marriages in the Church of England because of its special status as the established church. Even if its leaders decide in the future to change canon law to allow same-sex marriage, Parliament will have to ratify the move.

“We need to be fair to same-sex couples. The state should not be banning them from such a great institution” as marriage, Miller told the House of Commons. “Equally we need to be fair to people of faith.”

Religious groups in favor of conducting same-sex weddings include the Quakers and some liberal Jewish synagogues.

Currently, gay and lesbian couples can enter into “civil partnerships” in Britain that carry virtually all the same rights as marriage. About 50,000 partnerships have been registered since 2005.

Under the new proposal, a couple in such an arrangement would have the opportunity to swap their civil partnership for marriage. Civil partnerships would continue to be offered but for same-sex couples only; the government has no plans to make those available for opposite-sex couples because the demand is not there, Miller said.

I choked up scrolling through my friend's pictures from her City Hall experience. Just wonderful. They really did a nice job arranging this.
