Karac: Mike Chewbacca: Killer Cars: Karac: pciszek: Karac: Can you get married in a church belonging to any of five dozen religions OTHER than Christianity (which seems to be the only one against gay marriage)Islam, Orthodox Judaism, and Mormonism are pretty dead set against gay marriage, to name three.Mormon's count as fundamentalist Christians. And how many Muslim or Jewish political groups or politicians have you seen come out against gay marraige? How many times have you heard "This is a Jewish nation, and Jehovah clearly said no to homosexuality"? How many places has Sharia actually been installed as law? They many not want to perform the ceromonies they they don't seem to give a shiat if anyone else does.If a gay person can get hung in some Middle Eastern countries simply for their orientation....I think we can extrapolate their positions, even if publicly undefined currently, on gay marriage.I didn't realize Middle Easterners got to vote in America.I didn't realize civil rights for American citizens was contigent upon the laws of countries a third of the way around the world.Well, except for Vatican City.
cman: Civil unions? ReallyYou guys are farking sick.Two homosexuals should not have the option for civil union.Instead it should be marriage
ck1938: Dear Homosexuals,Despite the conclusions my choice to ski in Utah rather than Colorado from now on may lead you to I can assure you it is not true. I am not trying to avoid you. Rather I choose to avoid the legions of unemployed and giggling stoners who make up an increasingly large percentage of the population of Colorado. Enjoy your stay in the Miles High state.Sincerely,John F.

Summoner101: Colorado is a weird state. It shows a lot of similarities with WA, but every once in a while it shows its conservative bent.
Now That's What I Call a Taco!: If the only difference is the title on the top of the form, is it really "separate"?If there are other substantive differences, that's bullshiat. But if not, comparing this to Jim Crow demeans us all.
Mike Chewbacca: Seeing as how the Federal government doesn't recognize civil unions, it is just as bad as Jim Crow.
pciszek: Mike Chewbacca: Seeing as how the Federal government doesn't recognize civil unions, it is just as bad as Jim Crow.The Federal government doesn't recognize marriages between people of the same sex either.
Uranus Is Huge!: Cajnik: Colorado was cooler when they didn't charge $100 for season single day lift-tickets ($160 at Vail) while simultaneously pissing off season pass holders./remember buddy passes?Fixed.And yes, back in the day, buddy passes meant something.And we're still pretty farking cool.
pciszek: Mike Chewbacca: /it's called MARRIAGE equality, biatches!We have an amendment to our state constitution defining marriage as being between one man and one woman. Until the SCOTUS overrides that--unlikely--civil unions are all that is possible in Colorado in this regard.
PrYgMMa: I'm sort of okay with this, but I personally think that governing bodies in a secular nation should not be in the business of marriage at all, just civil unions, let the churches handle the "special" terminology like "marriage". Civil unions: Legally recognized and open to all couples regardless of gender, sex, orientation, religion. MArriage: a ceremony performed by a religious organization or some other non-governmental body. with this, no one could complain.
EngineerAU: Are civil unions allowed only for same sex couples? And are the benefits/responsibilities the same as 'traditional' marriage? If both are 'yes', I could easily see civil unions becoming a popular alternative for those who don't need or want the intermingled state and religious institution but do want a legal association with their partner, regardless of gender.

milsorgen: After the glitz and glamour of a thousand courthouse weddings and the temporary boost it will provide to economies expect the moral decay to make itself more and more apparent as economic activity (a domain of the industrious and morally righteous) declines as more and more Christians head for greener pastures.
chatikh: Not all people moan about gays having civil unions.
