Glad to see the country bumpkins still think that they truly speak for the majority of people in the state.

Would love to see resolutions to vote on this and legal weed at the next election. Even with conservative heavy mid-terms coming up, I bet it would be close enough to get a real push going for 2016.

Don't ultimatums usually have, I dunno, a threat of retaliation if it is rejected?

What can these guys do to retaliate against McAuliffe?

Governor McAuliffe is risking great harm to a number of people in Virginia through his refusal to defend the state's prohibition upon same-sex marriage.

If same-sex marriage recognition is forced in the state of Virginia, numerous religious and political organizations that predicted that same-sex marriage will cause substantial damage to society will be greatly harmed when absolutely no damage results. The failure of same-sex marriage to produce any ill effect may well irreparably harm the reputation of these organizations who will be seen as irrational, dishonest and even unreasonably bigoted. If Governor McAuliffe fails to stop same-sex marriage, then he will be partly responsible for the great harm that will result from the lack of any harm resulting from same-sex marriage.

Well, if The Rappahannock County Board of Supervisors is giving McAuliffe an ultimatum, I guess that's the way it's going to be. How is McAuliffe going to govern without Rappahannock County?

natural marriage has since time immemorial been a tradition and custom of the People of Virginia

I heard slavery was big there for a long time, too. And "time immemorial"? White people have only been there a few hundred years. Or do they mean the Algonquians?
Don't answer that. I shouldn't expect any of this to make a lick of sense.

Is the doing what PA did and just decide to not defend the unconstitutional law or is he actively violating it? he needs to wait for it to be stuck down or removed legislatively before he can do anything.

FTA: natural marriage has since time immemorial been a tradition and custom of the People of Virginia

Dr Dreidel: Who date back ALL THE WAY to 1607.


And in 1607 I believe the vast majority of settlers who came to the Tidewater colony were men, and a certain kind of uncouth, coarse man who lacked the polish of civilized society. I don't think "natural" marriage was practiced much in the early years of Virginia.

FTFA:""In an unprecedented act . . . [McAuliffe] announced that he has determined that an amendment enshrining1 natural marriage2 within the Constitution of Virginia - as it has forever been defined3 in the history of Western Civilization, Great Britain4 and the United States of America "

1. "enshrining" sounds suspiciously like some kind of religious thing.
2. Where in nature do you find marriage?  Where in human culture do you find marriage occurring naturally and not a pre-conceived and orchestrated event?
3. Marriage was not defined at all for most of western history, and when it was it included polygamy and marriage of children sometimes.
4. Since when do we use British laws as a foundation for our laws (yes, I know we've done it since the beginning, but I was told we couldn't allow foreign jurisprudence in America.

I got pretty drunk last weekend, so for me "time immemorial" was between 11PM Saturday and 10:30AM Sunday.  But if they mean a grander scale of things, I can't remember anything before 1969.

What's kinda funny is that "natural" was used for a time to describe illegitimate children.  So "the natural son of William Beaumont" meant "William Beaumont's bastard".  I can only assume a "natural marriage" is a marriage against the Biblical will of God. So these ass-crackers are actually demanding he support gay marriage...

Actually, it dates to 1978. Rural Virginians just couldn't figure out how "writing" and "records" work until them.

They should change every instance of "appoint" to "pay for."

If so, I'm going to demand that Christie defend the sanctity of my car by slashing other people's tires.

Seriously. It always makes me laugh when stupid people use words that they have heard, but don't know what they mean. I know that Jebus said that real Merkican's don't have no use for no book learning no how, but crack a dictionary you farking idiot.
I guess we should be satisfied that he did not say since time immortal.

Is that the natural marriage a rapist has with his victim, the natural marriage a man has with this multiple concubines, or the natural marriage a brother has with his dead brother's wife?

No, it's the natural marriage where a father sells his daughter to another family to improve his own standing.

Wait until they find out they also have to issue marriage licenses to interracial couples. It will be the end of western civilization, I tell you.

Did McCauliffe simply respond with the word "NUTS!"?
 
2014-01-30 06:35:59 PM  
At the request of Jackson district supervisor Ron Frazier, the Rappahannock County Board of Supervisors will consider a resolution at their monthly meeting Monday afternoon (Feb. 3) asking that current Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe step down in lieu of his recent decision not to appoint a special prosecutor to defend Virginia's gay marriage ban.

And the Governor passed a resolution for Jackson district supervisor Ron Frazier  to pucker up his lips and kiss her square on the ass.

No, that's traditional marriage. Natural marriage is when you got a woman with a club and drag her back to your cave.

Because if he does not defend Traditional Marriage(tm) all the straight people will have to get divorces!

Fact!  California allows same sex marriages,  Saint. Ron Reagan got a divorce!

so remember if you live in a state with same sex marriage, you must divorce your opposite sex partner.

Since time immemorial was defined in common law as the state that existed on 6th July 1189 (basically it defined a starting point of reasonable documentation of land ownership, usage rights, etc.)
 
2014-01-30 07:27:00 PM  
I wonder if the Governor has the power to fire these dipshiats, i doubt it but it would be amusing if he could had they had no clue he had the power to do so.
