Vermont Senate votes to legalize same-sex marriage - March 24th 2009, 02:46 AM

The Vermont Senate voted overwhelmingly Monday to legalize same-sex marriage, potentially setting the stage for a high-profile legislative showdown and breaking a new political barrier in the state that made history in 2000 by becoming the first to approve civil unions for gay and lesbian couples.
That's great news.

Not surprising, in Vermont. Awesome, though. (Y)

Unfortunately, yes. But at least it's some sense of progress.

Woot woot woot! I shall celebrate anyway at least this is a step towards the goal. Why can't people realize that homosexuals deserve all the rights afforded to straights. They are no less human and love is love is love no matter what package it is wrapped up in.

So, how long until the Mormons fund a voter initiative to ban it? Still, good for them.

YAY!!!

I'm moving. I wanna get married. What are the other states that are currently allowing gay marriage??

look me in the eye and tell me you don't find me attractive
look me in the heart and tell me that you won't go
look me in the eye and promise no love is like our love
look me in the heart and unbreak broken, it won't happen

Have to beg the question, why are you against gay marriage? I have not thought of a plausible reason why someone would be against it...

I'm assuming it goes against her Christian beliefs.

I personally don't really care. Homosexual marriage, heterosexual marriage, whatever, I don't really care. But, I'm more interested in how long it takes for some people to start bitching about it for some pointless reasons.

I would just like to say that this offends many homosexual people. You can hide behind your belief, but then I point out things the bible condemns because you must support everything in the bible

'But XX you only take out certain pieces of the bible it is a personal thing'

So then the bible allows stoning of blasphemers (Leviticus 24:16). Yet if I were to do this I would get arrested. So I take it as "Religious beliefs are fine as long as they do not intrude on the rights of others". In this case, the rights of homosexuals to marry are being intruded on because of your beliefs.

sorry if that made no sense.

No, that made perfect sense actually. I completely agree.

How can they be your friends if your against something so central to their person?


Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

I think it could be like a friend of yours being an alcoholic or I dunno, pedophile (NO I'm not comparing homo & these!), you don't approve/support whatever they do, think they need help, but they could still be your friends.
