Yes, and I think there is also a tiny asterix and minutiae detail in fine print to do with mummy and daddy also being brother a sister, but not in name...

You know, some real Jerry Springer s#.

Read my post above yours.


Yeah... that's scary. I hope that's not how it will play out. If so, then that's definitely a deal breaker.

Can they do that? or is this like a Legal Loophole that eventually would have to be voted on all over again?

Yep. It's rebellious.

And as I said in my first post, something just doesn't smell right. I'm not sure what that funky detail is, but something just isn't right with this.

I DO want to know more. Yes, we do need details.

I don't know. I doubt if the Supreme Court will uphold it -- surely not. Plus, Alabama has a Republican Governor, but he's quite moderate. I don't know if he could veto it or not, but I bet he will if he can.

I'm glad something positive was able to come out of this. My understanding is that George Washington never got government permission to marry. He went to the church for the marriage, and it was never certified because that was not something they did at the time.

Hopefully states will now eliminate marriage licenses completely. Problem solved for good.

Where is the proof you have that same-sex marriage will be affected?
Until you can provide proof I think you are wrong.

I challenge you to find proof of your assertion before you run around like an alarmist chicken little.

I think, like Charlie Spears that it is about
brothers and sisters not marrying
and bigamy
or polygamy
or polyandry
or a parent marrying a child
like Charlie said "Jerry Springer stuff."

I like it. The court houses do not have to do this, people can pay for a lawyer to research things and fill out the paperwork.

I read it as something that would afford equality across he board and not involve religious institutions that don't agree with marriages between same-sex couples.

Well it's sourpuss, still bigoted but no one can say they are treating anyone unequal. Seems to me though that there would be some government clerks that aren't so religious that they would feel icky handing a marriage license to a gay couple, maybe even some wanted to... but perhaps they were ordered not to based on religious grounds.

At any rate, government employees have no business refusing to do their job on religious grounds. This takes care of that pretty neatly. Well done Alabama, for figuring out the only way to legally be bigots was to eliminate a service all together.

Fair is fair.

This would simplify divorce. It is mujch easier to disolve a contract, 'resign' your position, adjudicate property, or simply buy out the other parties 'share'... Than petition the State for divorce, and go through all the proceedings, abitration, etc, etc.

I personally never wanted a 'marriage license', only the Church ceremony witnessed and celebrated by family and friends, and officiated by God. I Hate hate hate having the State as the 3rd Party in my marriage and 'guardian' of my morals. [Roberts v. Roberts, Linneman v. Linneman]

Need to dig up the text of this bill. Interest piqued.

I could not find your link in the thread before you made your assertion.

I read the article and it does not support your assertion that same sex marriage is affected.

So kindly repost your proof as I could not find it, if you don't want to repost it, at least tell me what page it is on in the thread so I can read your proof.

I look at it as a compromise.

Isn't that what everyone always talks about?

Compromise.

No! They don't want compromise because that means some people would still be free to disagree with them.
