Gay Marriage Goes Down, But Not Without a Fight

California county registrars may have stopped issuing licenses to same-sex couples, but not all Californians are ready to accept the newly approved marriage ban. The city of San Francisco filed lawsuits challenging Prop. 8's passage, and California Attorney General Jerry Brown says he will fight to defend the legality of the marriage licenses already issued to 18,000 same-sex couples.

Last night at a West Hollywood rally, 2,500 joined a protest of Prop. 8, which eventually clashed with the LAPD. Seven protesters were arrested. In San Francisco's Castro neighborhood the rainbow flag is flying at half-staff, and last night gay marriage supporters held a candle light vigil at San Francisco's City Hall. Rallies of support for gay marriage were held in other parts of the state, too.

Gay marriage bans also passed in Arizona and Florida on Tuesday, along with an Arkansas ban on adoption by anyone except a married man and woman. How long do you think the struggle for gay marriage will go on before it is completely successful? Will it ever be?

>That pretty much says it all. If you have enough money, you can do almost anything. You can't marry two men in California! Can't buy that. >They made the right choice. Who about what?

They made the right choice.

"With money and connections, people can pretty much do anything." That pretty much says it all. If you have enough money, you can do almost anything.

How is that fair that people in Arkansas cannot adopt if you aren't married but Brad and Angelina can adopt, adopt, adopt? I would prefer people are married before adopting, but marriage doesn't always work out. It just doesn't even with the best intentions. How can single women like Meg Ryan adopt? With money and connections, people can pretty much do anything.

Having been born and raised in CA but currently residing in the South, I can see both sides of the argument. I really believe that the definition of marriage should be up to the two people who desire to enter into one. Homosexuality is already a controversial topic in our society. The idea of homosexuality and marriage raises some questions: Is "marriage" a right or a privilege? Is it a license or a religious testament? I would say it's a matter of opinion. In the case of Prop 8, one side had theirs resonate through legislation. Since Arkansas has now banned, prohibited, made it illegal for straight unwed couples to adopt as well, I can't help but wonder where the government will draw the line...

Prop 8 was fair and the losers just need to get over it. The attempts to redefine marriage away from one man and one woman have failed everytime they've been put to a statewide ballot. However, the undemocratic liberals who want to tear down the institutions that make up our society constantly go to the courts to overturn the will of the voters.

This is in response to something nasty yesterday. I don't live on here, so I just read the comment.

Wow snowbunny11, you are truly a bitter person. You expect everyone else to bow to your words as if you are so freaking smart and I am supposed to shut up because why? I believe marriage is between a woman and a man. I didn't blame gays for my divorce or the whole baby-mama thing (nice) I was just giving my opinion, which isn't allowed unless it agrees with yours? Yea, don't think so. I wasn't even being nasty in my post. I wasn't taught hate. I don't hate, but I also don't support it. Just because I like Coach "bags" doesn't mean I don't have a right to freedom of speech. It doesn't make me better or worse than anyone. You made it sound like a disease or something. Get over yourself.

Received! Reciprocated! I unsubscribed because the conversation was about cell phones, not because of anyone participating. (For some reason when I go to my "subscriptions" page they're not in order and it takes too long to find the one I want so I've started just posting something random or blank because it's easier to unsubscribe that way.)

Just saw this:
"I don't care if people and their imaginary man on a cloud think it's a sin." Very respectful.
I don't respect religious beliefs. I of course respect one's constitutional right to hold them, but I think religion is silly. That's nothing new.

Man..I go "work" for 30 minutes and I missed the vibrating cell phone! GS I hope he didn't fart on your hand when you spanked him.

lol, we don't work together all the time. Usually I am going and blowing around town or at the house. A couple times a week we find ourselves both at the office. And it is nice, most of the time. Sometimes, not so much. :pms:

In all seriousness though, I totally wish my honeybunny (:love:) were sitting in the next room over so that he could bring me stuff. I'd make him come over and pick up the cordless phone that I just "dropped."

Um.... yeah! Sure! I meant like.... well, nevermind. I don't think many people here would appreciate what I have to say about Vibrators. I mean vibrating phones.
