Gay marriages become legal on May Seventeenth.  Gay people have been planning straight marriages for years, so I thought that a straight guy would be perfect for helping the gay people out with their marriage needs.  I am thinking of opening a gay-marriage boutique.  I am going to call it "Adam and Steve's."

They are still arguing about it, but it does become legal on May 17, as ordered by the Massachusetts State Supreme Court.

It is Margaret Cho's opinion that to legalize gay marriage across the board would solve our struggling economy. http://www.margaretcho.com/blog/jobs.htm

Another reason why Margaret is my favorite person in the world.

Governor Romney tried to convince the Attorney General to request a stay for an order that the court had issued and confirmed.  The AG said no, the court has made their position absolutely clear, in two rulings on the matter.

Really, which is more of a threat to the institution  of marriage: gay marriage or the current divorce rate?  

I love the Margaret Cho link!

Although I marked I don't care, I'm obliged to agree with that argument to a certain extent. I think SNL made some joke about gay marriage aiding the economy.  Grin

Oh, and the reason, I voted for the "I don't care" option is because I care about something else more. That is that this argument about gay marriage in our country will be settled soon. If I had to pick a side though, I would lean towards legalizing gay marriage because its worthy points on civil rights.

be sure to check out her blog then. She updates almost everyday, and man, she cracks me up evertime. Not to mention that she is a truth-teller if I have ever heard one.

Well, let me be the first to post that I strongly argue against it! It is an insult to a Holy union, moral principles, and most of all, God! You wanted an opinion...there it is.

What if god is gay?  Weren't all of the apostles male?  Would you deny marriage rights to god and his life partner?

I'm not even going to answer that question.  You know very well that isn't the case.

I'll only believe God is insulted when I hear it from God himself.

And you're perfectly entitled to your attitude, as long as it stays out of government.

You have heard it from God. It is in his Word, the Bible. In addition, I don't have an "attitude". I was just expressing my beliefs.  The government was established on Christian principles, but our "government officials" have digressed from it's "roots" so much. That is why this country is so screwed-up! We should be inviting moral principles into our government, not expelling them! When will you all wake up and get a whiff of reality? When it's too late?!!!
