CynicalLA: This can only help the economy.


Gay marriage is being propped up by the wedding planning and catering lobby!  I knew it!  They saw the threat to their bottom line due more and more heterosexuals refusing to get married.  Their plan almost went off without being noticed!

jvl: Questioning the masculinity of anti-gay marriage folks is not a sensible way of supporting gay marriage.

Some people just want to yell at their opponents and don't give a flying fark about actually getting things done.


And noticing startling trends is not necessarily a way to discredit a reasoned debate, either.

mpirooz: vygramul: mpirooz: "I stand here, quite honestly, more uncertain of my future in this place than I ever have, but when I walk out of this chamber today ... I will be on the side of liberty," Petersen said.

Petersen is a Republican. Let that sink in for a while.

Which way did he vote?

Yes.


The majority of sane Republicans see the writing on the wall.  The right to marriage for gays is 'going' to be nation-wide one day very soon and the smart ones are jumping across the line in increasing numbers to support state efforts.

Although, I don't know Minnesota.  Is he likely to get primaried for his support of the law?

Sen. Dan Hall, later speaking against the bill, expressed his fears about the legislation, saying, "Next, I believe we will be forced to believe what we don't."

....which, while cool, has little to do with the Minnesota legislature supporting legalization. Sad to see many states where it's still banned despite clear popular support (looking at you, California).

/nonetheless, good work Minnesota!

Girl From The North Country: It is so hard to believe that less than 6 months ago a constitutional amendment to ban marriage equality was at risk of passing. Now, only 6 months later equality, not discrimination, is the law. This could not be any sweeter because this never would have happened at this time if the derpers hadn't tried to push that crap through in the last election. I am basking in the fabulousness of how this all transpired. Gold....pure gold.


Minnesota is all about being nice and MYOB.  It wasn't a big issue.  Nice folks don't talk about that.  Then the fundies got all nuts and tried to push the issue on the ballot.  Yard signs up, preachers in a tizzy.  It all backfired in a huge way when the pro-gay marriage people successfully painted them as just mean and trying to run other people's business.

Awesome.

In Illinois, SSM bill passed senate and is pending a vote in the house.  They're trying to get enough votes to pass it and I think they will this summer.

I agree it's a big deal that gays can marry should they choose, I just don't think it's a big deal to have the right to an institution like marriage that has a 50% failure rate.

antidisestablishmentarianism:
Put party politics aside and imagine all the good that can be done. This man is a hero.

I wouldn't say he's a hero. The people that have worked hard their entire lives( the activists, writers, and so on) for gays to be treated as equals are heroes, not a politician seeing the tide and saying "yes". This goes for the Democratic ones as well.

They listened to their constituents, which is good but not heroic. It's sad that it's the nature of politics for it to be that way.

That wasn't entirely our fault. The Mormons spent half the GDP of the state of Utah defeating our last attempt to make it legal, and they didn't have enough left to challenge Minnesota. You'll notice that since they "won" in California, other states have been toppling over like bowling pins, so maybe their cunning plan to subvert the Gay State wasn't as cunning as they thought.

Maybe I'm misreading that statement, but that statement implies to me that this asshole felt that businesses were hurt and children confused when Minnesota voted against slavery? Seriously?

It's really simple- when you allow two men or two women to marry each other, it destroys the cotton industry and makes the blacks all uppity and when there's no cotton and uppity blacks the economy collapses.

This confuses the fark out of children because it makes absolutely no sense and they haven't yet learned to turn that part of their brain off.

So please, kill all the gays.  It's to only way to stop the poor kiddies from getting flustered when they learn that everything we tell them is bullshiat.
