I hate religion. I'm not promoting it. Governments don't even care about what you or I think about them. They're on the top of the world.

Their laws are garbage though. They want us to fight over their garbage.

Then what is your problem with the ruling?

Your opening post railed against the government for slighting people of a certain religion.

People like you read way to much into stuff like this. The fact is, that people are people. It doesn't matter who people are attracted to or who they take home at night, EVERYBODY deserves the same rights as the dude standing next to him.

If you had a child or a sibling who was homosexual, would you frown upon them and try to deny the fact that they have the same rights as you?

Just because some people are gay, that does NOT mean they are any less human then you. Trying to deny somebody the right to marry the person they love is absolutely disgusting, and I can't believe there are people in this world who think they are actually affected by it. The only way another person's decisions can affect you, is if you let them. Why don't you just focus on fixing your own flaws before you start conquering those of other people.
Attraction is a basic instinct for us humans, and you really cannot control who makes your pants dance when they walk by.

I hope the rest of country decides to make gay marriage legal as well... for if gay people are not allowed to get married, then straight people shouldn't be allowed to get married either.

I congratulate this State for moving up in the world, and not being judgmental fools.

Peace.

Homophobia

Homophobia (from Greek homós: one and the same; phóbos: fear, phobia) is an irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality, homosexuals, or individuals perceived as homosexual. Some definitions lack the "irrational" component. Homophobic is the adjective form of this term used to describe the qualities of these characteristics, while homophobe is the noun form given as a title to individuals labeled with homophobic characteristics. Homophobia was first used with its modern meaning in 1972, although it was coined in the mid-1950s. It has been criticized as a pejorative against those with differing value positions, with several researchers proposing alternative words to describe prejudice and discrimination against gays and lesbians. The term "internalized homophobia" is used to describe a prejudice against one's own homosexuality

Do you have the wording of the law, as you wrote it, it may now allow polygami. More than one man or woman or both.

Three wives and four husbands, etc.

Christianity is supposed to be confusing. That's why there's so many types of Christians! Keep in mind that Christianity wasn't promoted or preached from the mouths of the prophets, who wrote the Aramaic-scriptures.

Many (if not all) Christians supposedly follow what they've read in the King James version of the "holy bible", which was written by his false-scribes. King James was an inbred occultist, who intentionally ordained & printed a book of mistranslations & lies.

There's so many types of Christians, these days. Which one of them is truly following the words of the Arab Messiah, Yahusha?

Name 1 single christian that actually follows the Torah or all 10 commandments, which the messiah taught in his tabernacles. If you can find a person like that, I'll join a "christian church" tomorrow!

In reality, non-occult religions are accepted & promoted by the majority, and homosexuality along with the world-government is not accepted by the majority.

That's a common-insult: "You're a homophobe if you don't like homosexuality." Do you have anything new for me or anyone else, who would rather stay out of childish-discussions or arguments?

I don't have a problem with homophobia, do you? I'm sure you think a lot of people are scared of homosexuals, but I'm not a lot of people. I fear nothing that you can imagine.

So, homosexuals should be denied equal rights?

You have the nerve to speak of insults. Look at all the insults and negativity you are spitting towards your fellow man!

Peace.

This is wonderful news, I am so glad to hear that anyone can just stop in and marry. Can anyone say New Vegas? This is a victory for human rights.

I don't know. I'm not god, and neither are homosexual governments. Who has authority over marriage? I'm not playing politics, I'm exposing the fools, who promote that garbage. The occult-world government wants us to fight for rights that we already have. They have no authority over religious-groups & homosexuals.

Who has authority to make us follow or accept any man-made laws? We're supposed to be free to follow common-laws, not new or odd sexually-motivated laws made by governments, which don't count our votes or care to listen to why we oppose them.

Great news! It's a trend that will eventually spread to every state in the country.

No one is forced into accepting homosexuality. Heterosexuals have been able to marry forever and homo's still dont have to "accept" them, whatever "accepting" means. Gay guys have better things to do than to worry about what SOME Christians think of them. There are Christian churches out there that fight for gay rights, and they are the Christians that make Christianity not look all that bad in the eyes of others.

So heterosexual marriage is there to provoke gays? I don't think that is why heteros get married. Heteros get married for the same reasons as homos.

Love conquers all

This isn't a democracy, its a republic. Republics protect minority rights, democracy doesn't. "Give Joe blow in Florida the death penalty for stealing a newspaper? Sure, why not, I'm having a bad day."

I wonder if people that repress/hate certain people were themselves repressed as children, and as adults they perpetuate that treatment...I'll have to look into that

Then, what are the common laws?

Political laws? Man-made laws? God's laws?

Hopefully all 50 states will soon agree that a couple's sexual preference shouldn't determine whether or not they can marry. To those that have a problem with it, ask yourself how does a gay couple getting married affect you? Why would that bother you?

y'know, it's funny...i've always heard that homophobic types harbor latent homosexual tendencies themselves...




In any case, this is great news. Everyone deserves the right to be miserable...i mean uh...married, no matter what their sexual orientation is. Hopefully, the rest of the states will follow suit. If not, so be it but it would be nice.

While I am quite pleased to hear this news, and I really hope the other states follow suit eventually.......Iowa? Isn't that a little odd to anyone else? Maybe I have preconceived notions of Iowa in general. Just totally didn't see that one coming.

I too am very pleased to see that now the civil right of marriage is opening up to all people regardless of sexual orientation.

What is more interesting even is the wording, it sounds like polygamy or bigamy is not a crime in Iowa anymore. Anyone know for sure about that? It sure sounds like it to me. I could care less how many people anyone wants to marry, and never could get why that was such a big deal. With all the adultery and broken families, who cares really.

Lets just hope that Iowa is not inundated with FLDS members with their practice of "baby brides". That is just wrong and never should be tolerated. I wonder what the LDS church will do if polygamy is no longer considered illegal? Any thoughts? r

The war against tyrants & their minions will not end, until they're thrown off their thrones. If you do enough research, you'll see how many dictators are closet-homosexuals, who pose as heterosexuals in public. They're responsible for pro-homosexual laws.

Hitler wasn't a christian, even though he opposed homosexuals, he was an occultist. All leaders in the world-government are occultists, and they love passing laws against their foes: people in Abrahamic-religious groups & laws for their supporters: Most of them are homosexuals & proud of it.

Loved-ones protect their own & provoke their foes.

Uh...remember that there have been some American religious Christian leaders who were closet gays, paid for services of male prostitutes, solicited sex in men's public bathrooms, and used heavy drugs while engaging in sexual activities with same-sex partners.
Just saying.
I really could care less. I'm not religious, not gay, and believe that people should do whatever they want to , as long as no harm is done to others.

Whatever. Look. I don't care if guy wants to marry another guy and enjoy the same benifits my wife and I enjoy. It causes no harm to me and probably helps those guys. If a woman wants to marry another woman. More power to them. But, can I watch?
l
And if I can convince my wife to have a marriage between us and that cute lil 19 year old girl that moved in down the street. So what? Like that is going to happen on many different levels.
Meanwhile, you can be pretty sure is my wife says, I just met a guy and I want us all to get married. Unless he is really cute, heh. I will protest. lol. But I don't need the government to get involved in all this. And, gasp, I am have conservative leanings. But I like to think I am a true conservative, you know the ones, less government intrusion, freedom, like the founding fathers spoke and wrote about, in their then liberal attitudes, and probably never even imagined mixed marriages, and mutliple partner marriages, while they had black honeys in their beds as night warming their feet. Yeah, warm my feet you mocha baby!! lol.
But I think they were on the right track, their message just got sidetracked because they believed they had the end all and do all system.
I remember hearing tales of illegal marriages between white and black people. What the f??? is that all about? Go Iowa!! Heartland America. Coming into the light from out of the dark.

Meanwhile we are Supernatual fans. How about that Sammy Winchester? Is he cute or what? Well, my wife prefers Dean. He is rugged and cynical and sarcastic. I understand, that is me, too. lol. So I guess we won't come together in agreement on this. I still don't see what she has against that 19 year old down the street, though. lol. But, okay, we will remain monogamous, and have our fantasies. and continue on. But we surely won't get in the way of others who can realize their own desires.
