I support traditional marriage.

You should have seen the biatchin' goat I got from my father-in-law to convince me to take the burden that was his daughter off his hands. We disagreed the other night so I beat her for a while, since I own her now.

Huzzah traditional marriage.

Yes, but you'd probably end up crossing out the word "marriage" on every license and writing in "civil union".

Why?


Because you don't believe government should use the word "marriage", remember?

Marriage is a sacred bond between a man and his wives and concubines. It's in the Bible, you can look it up.

letrole: Homosexual marriage is pursued as a means to an end. Homosexuals, by an exceedingly large margin, do not wish to get married or to form civil unions. Rather, they want to be accepted as normal. Their hope is that public approval of homosexuality will follow the legal establishment of homosexual marriages.


Let me tell you something about the homosexual,...........

Bobby_and_The_Gorilla: I work in Little Rock, the amount of Arkansas brand "Wharrgarble Jeebus herp-derp" has reached Beijing smog levels. But more and more every day they are being silenced by others who realize, finally, that Jesus didn't farking stutter when he said "hey why not try love instead of hate for once."

We had a man interviewed on TV saying that GAWD was going to wither the rice crop, foul the waters and poison the air if this wasn't reversed. I'm not looking forward to every tornado down here from now on to be blamed on this... might just start calling them "judgement twisters" and save time...

I had some very good friends get married Monday morning, at last! It's about time the state recognizes their love for their partner isn't different than the love I have for my wife. It's about time that shiat is celebrated! Yes, I cried a little, I always cry at weddings.

rickythepenguin: rickythepenguin: yeah. she looks kinda rough in the second photo, the one in the story she looked hotter. ehh. who cares.


actually i'm just projecting, she bears a strong resemblance to my friend's hot wife.  upon further review the arkansas girl is nice looking, but i have to retract "stone hottie".  mos def attractive but not as much as i remmembered.


So what we can really take away from this is that you want to fark your friend's hot wife.

Oh yes, your profoundly delusional fantasy world built on functional illiteracy.

Thank you for revealing my true feelings and motives as a gay man.

I don't know what we homosexuals would do without you straight folk clarifying our lives for us.

timujin: So, issuing a license to a gay couple is not "contrary to the (still valid) provisions of this act" nor is it to any persons who are declared by law as not entitled to one.

Plus, in order for the clerk to be fined, the state would have to bring charges. And there's no better way to be found in contempt by a judge than to criminally charge people who are following their rulings.


I'm hoping there are clerks out there willing to chance it. The only thing to do right now is wait and see.


Simple enough to take the next step. Just have a gay couple try to get a license, and if the clerk refuses, then sue the clerk and the state in Federal court for a section 1983 violation.
