Civil unions? Really

You guys are farking sick.

Two homosexuals should not have the option for civil union.

Instead it should be marriage

Colorado needs to stop wasting their time on little things like ending the war on drugs and gay marriage and start focusing on important things like ending the sale of large sodas. Farking backward-ass red states I tell ya.

cptjeff: Nuclear Pancake: DIAF Subby!

/WTF Mods? A Paywall?

You get 15 free articles a month, and there are easy ways around it. Learn to deal.


Subby here, sorry about the paywall mess, all I can say is that it was free and clear when I submitted the headline.  Hell, I'm over my 15 free articles a month and it still let me view the whole thing without any prompts or tricks earlier this afternoon.

EngineerAU: gingerjet: Marriage isn't a religious institution.

Yes it is. You can argue that it isn't exclusive a religious institution or that it historically arose for non-religious purposes but is absolutely positively is a religious institution in addition to being a legal one. To claim otherwise is to wander into the world of flat earthers and believers in the reptile people.


So you're saying the reptile people don't exist?

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.


You sound boring and you probably ski like a pussy.

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. Combine this the epidemic of hard drug abuse in the state (marihauna is a scheduled I drug mind you) and we have a new Welfare Capitol in the works.

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.


And by "it's conservative bent" you mean the infected taint zit that is Colorado Springs of course.

Vodka Zombie: It's made all the more wonderful by the simple fact that Colorado is home to nutty religious groups like Focus on the Family.


Yes.  yes it is.  The ironing is quite delicious if you live in this state right now.
