Yes agree to disagree , but as a person that is gay I can assure you it is NOT a choice. I can't even manage to find a reason anyone would choose it. I grew up in the 80s and those were not gay-friendly times.

My mom accepts me at the same level you described, maybe a bit more, but not 100% and it's because of her religious convictions which I accept, and me and God are a-ok.

At least now in the USA I can walk among my peers and feel equal.

Edit to add- a big part of a woman's life is being able to learn from mom, seek advice, share relationship successes and misses, just like sons and fathers. That's the missed percentage of the relationship with my mom that is at times heartbreaking.

There are issues where I will disagree with Supreme Court decisions. And others where I will agree.

The Supreme Court is not infallible. They are the third branch of government. I mean, we disagree with the other 2 branches all the time and openly state that we would not obey their dictates!

Just look at TPP, Freedom Act, NDAA. . . etc.

This is simply a decision that people will either agree or disagree with. And with anything else, some will refuse to honor the demands of this branch of government.

It won't hold.



Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal and his attorney general, Buddy Caldwell, are refusing to allow same-sex couples to wed in The Pelican State.

"Current state law is still in effect until the courts order us otherwise," a Jindal spokesman told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.


What do they think happened today??? The Courts ordered them otherwise.


Seven same-sex couples in Louisiana already filed a motion seeking to force state officials to enforce the Supreme Court's decision. Meanwhile, Jindal slammed the high court's ruling and said it should be abolished.


Poor Jindal... www.advocate.com...

If this is all good now, why is polygamy illegal?


If women have the right to their own bodies concerning pregnancy why do I as a male not have the right to my body to do as I wish with it?

You can bet he is doing it to gain votes from the religious right who live in the country seeing he is running for GOP presidential candidate.

I know there are a couple that vow to do away with Same-Sex marriage if they get elected, but i can't believe that would be good for their chance at election?

While I do not accept your lifestyle as natural or normal (please don't take that in an offensive light, as it was not meant that way) in my view of the world, I will defend your right to live that lifestyle as a free person.

That is what freedom means to me. While we may not agree with, or support someone else's choices in life, they should have the right to make those choices and not have to hide it, just as anyone else should have the right to disagree with those same choices, and not have to hide it.

(It shouldn't have to be qualified, but I will do so because I know the nature of ATS all too well ... Those freedoms should not include the choice to commit murder, or other heinous -and hopefully obvious- crimes)

So Jindal is going to pick and choose which laws are to be obeyed??? How does that work?

He wasn't going to get my vote anyway, this just kinda seals the deal... What a tool.

Y'know, all the reading I've done on this issue, which is I admit not as much as it might have been, since I made up my mind on the issue many, many years ago... I still don't see what harm this is going to do.

The only issue I have with this SCOTUS ruling is that it shouldn't have had to go that far. Doing the right thing shouldn't require SCOTUS, or legislation...

It's easy to say, but hard to do.

So if a GOP'er gets elected, all marriage licenses, al insurance paperwork/claims, all adoptions, all legal documents become invalid for hundreds of thousands of people?

Not going to happen.

Enjoy the day.

Enjoy the fact that it is now marriage instead of gay marriage.

You have it easy. I have to deal with family and church and friends calling me a liberal weenie.

Me.

A liberal!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Exactly, this should have been "Legal" from the beginning... the point that it had to go this far, and even farther still is just ignorance

Never married a redhead, though I have the beginnings of my own mini United Nations... 1 Irish, 1 Portuguese, and 1 Chinese, and a kid with each of them.
