This joy is what life is about; fie on those who wish to deny others a chance at happiness.

I think with this judge's ruling the opposition has run out of legitimate reasons to deny gay people the opportunity to be married; what remains is simply hate for the gay. The tide has turned and the children of today will wonder what all the fuss was about when they become adults...in a better world (at least in this respect).

There are no legitimate reasons to stop gay people from marrying. There never were. It always boils down to the same thing: "Ewww, icky gay people having buttsex! Gross! And they can't have any kids the normal way! Double yuck!" I mean seriously, even if you were the religious type, you'd think that if homosexuality was such a big no-no God would've put it into the Top Ten list of Do's and Don'ts, or Jesus would've gone on a bender about that instead of his usual Stop Sticking Your Nose Into Your Neighbor's Business And Go Feed Some Poor People Or Something Constructive stuff.

Plus anything that makes haters' heads spin backwards always pleases me greatly. >;)

You're right. I should've written "legitimate" as some appeared so but I agree it all boils down to the deniers of gay rights being appalled by visions of men having sex (and ignoring or being turned on by the idea of women having sex). What it really boils down to is the attempt to justify the dislike by trying to impose Bronze age beliefs on a space age society...and they're losing!!!

It's the whole point of learning: when we learn new stuff that's better than the old, we're supposed to alter the beliefs to best help the society. After all, people used to believe that slapping a bunch of leeches on a patient was the best way to cure sick folks!

(Granted, I know there's legit uses in modern medicine wherein the application of bugs or creepy crawlies is particularly useful. We're talking the drain-you-dry approach that people used to have with leeches. ;) )

Thus far nobody has ever been able to give me a satisfactory reason why two consenting gay adults can't marry, and if you use the Bible defense I'm the liberal Christian-friendly type, so... yeah. XD The haters can get back to me when the RCC works on that little child-abusing priest problem, m'kaaaaaaay?
