Somebody predicted, when judges started creating marriage laws by decree, that some states would just stop issuing marriage licenses. Who was that? Oh yeah, it was me. I'll try not to strain my arm patting myself on the back.

Seriously though, gov't shouldn't be endorsing anybody's marriage. Looks like Alabama is ahead of the curve.

Minorities in general now have way to much authority over the majority. This plays out in so many area's in so many ways today. The majority is not favorable to being led by a few in a select minority. In this county majority is supposed to rule, not be ruled against. Some day soon this may all change.

According to Gallup, 60% of Americans support gay marriage

Yep, and I'm not the least bit surprised. I too have said govt. should be out of marriage. And predictably, some here seem to act as though the sky will fall if states get out of the marriage business.

Um ... if there's no govt. dole involved anymore for it, what difference does it make? They can go just go out in the back yard, exchange rings, and say "I do" and they are wed, if they say so.

According to the law in 25 states, most passed by referendum, marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman. That was before the Federal judiciary decided it would rule marriage by imperial decree. Oh but wait, Gallup did a poll of few hundred people.

Simply filing a notice with the state is sufficient.
As usual, you ignore everything that is said, declare it wrong and then pretend your response has relevance.


If they turn into JUST "record keepers", then does that give them any involvement with divorce?
Honest answer: No
Ergo, everything I described is accurate.

I'm open to changes in marriage.
Just not stupid ones driven by prejudice.

Here's another question for you to cower from.
Suppose a Mormon polygamist wants to get married to multiple wives.
Since Alabama just becomes a "recorder", doesn't that mean they would record what the religion has granted?
Honest answer is yes, but you won't address that honestly either...

I find it hilarious that you thanked AZRWinger's reply to my post, but you are the one who should get his comment.
But of course, AZRWinger won't correct his fellow right-winger.

The article clearly states that the marriages will be recognized.
Ergo, yet again, try reading an article before jumping in and revealing you don't know what's going on.

My opposition to this legislation has nothing to do with "recognizing gay marriage".
The motivation for the legislation is obviously about fighting marriage equality.

And of course, you cower from any intelligent discussion on the consequences thereof...
