Unlike a lot of other states with positive rulings, the judge in this case did say that his ruling would be stayed until appeal. So no rush of Texans to hit the Justice of the Peace.

I think I read that there's 22 such cases going on right now across the nation. Suppose this will be hitting the SCotUS sooner rather than later.

Brewer vetoed the bill. Sounds as though MLB/NFL considerations played a decent part in it.

It's just as well. If this bill becomes law then that's all you would hear about next year. Someone who got a sub-contract for the game wouldn't be playing nice with *** people, and there'd be endless debate and dramas, accusations, boycotts, people would buy extra fried chicken, etc. Nothing good could come from that.

Well, unless you hate chickens, of course.

**** yes. Pitchers and catchers are about to report. Have you been doing your wind sprints and working on that slider?

A lot of companies involved in tourism were also asking her to veto it, and one of the talking heads I heard quoted 1 out of every 13 jobs in Arizona is tourism related.

Quirks of the state system. The executive branch of the federal government can be opposed to both the policy in Russia and the policy in Arizona while the Arizona policy legally stays in place since it's not a federal matter.

I think it speaks to just how many retirees there are in Arizona. Not a huge working class population, I'd imagine. And I assume maintaining golf courses gets filed under "tourist-related industry".

#21gbaji, Posted: Feb 27 2014 at 8:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That's true, but IMO misses the larger issue. Only by adopting an incredibly simplistic "for/against gays" mindset can we ignore the vast difference between whether people have the freedom to speak about homosexuality, or whether *** couples qualify for the benefits of state marriage. I simultaneously support the illegality of child abuse *and* oppose giving every child in the country a free pet. Shocking, and similarly, this isn't contradictory at all.

What kind of pet are we talking about here? Would it be something I have to clean up after?

Anyway, Kentucky was ordered today to start recognizing same *** marriages performed in other states. No news on whether or not they need to accept your pets.

This bodes well for chances of finally being able to sell my brilliant screenplay " Bunghole Bobby and the Rump rangers". It's the touching story of some *** Texas rangers riding the trails searching for love. ( in all the wrong places?)

It's semi based on a true story, as everyone knows there ain't nothing in Texas but steers and ******.

Clarification needed. Are you using "pet" as a noun or a verb in this sentence? Because that sentence makes a **** of a lot of sense, unless I read it the way Josh did.



EDIT: did I just call him Josh?

I seriously can't make any logical sense out of this analogy. Is it an analogy? ****...whatever. Anyway, the statement itself really doesn't work, You could maybe have said something more like...i dunno...um....hm....I actually don't know, but I'm sure you could have come up with something better for an analogy...

(5 minutes pass wherein I forgot to click "post")

Oh, I know, "I simultaneously support the illegality of child abuse *and* oppose the public flogging of those who commit the aforementioned crime". It's a bit silly, but at least it's closer in relation to supporting *** marriage but not supporting providing the same gov't benefits and straight marriage. I mean, really, yours is a bit of an exaggeration. So's mine, but at least mine makes sense.

For the record as a Bible-thumping Christian (see "fundy moron"Smiley: wink):

My problem with these laws is not pertaining to *** marriages per se. My problem is the government regulating spirituality. Marriage can be seen in two ways: legislatively and spiritually. Legislatively involves the paperwork, taxes, property, visitations, etc and spiritually involves the LOVE. That's LOVE and LOVE alone with a capital L-O-V-E. There are many religions and lifestyles and the way that our society is heading spiritually every person or little group of people are practically becoming a "religion" unto themselves. The point is that, in my view, this government has ZERO right to dictate the definition of a spiritual marriage. I don't believe that the government is in any place to discriminate between the people to whom it provides services such as issuing marriage contracts for tax/property/visitation/et al. It's the United States government and is not the Vatican, not the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution, and (despite what many people claim) not the Sanhedrin. What is our government supposed to be? It is a public service paid for by the public and operating at the whim and will of the public. They should probably recognize that people are NOT going to stop being *** and stop discriminating against people based on the fact that America used to consider itself a Christian nation.

The government is not a religious organization and they should stop pretending to be. If a couple is married then who has any right to say otherwise. I myself can say "They are not married under God's eyes as I personally see it as a Christian"... sure thing. That is my right to say that but my compassion for people is not based on their religion or their sexual preference. We all have to live on the same planet for the time being and there is no reason to believe that suddenly people are going to start changing. Now if they want to start forcing Christian churches to marry *** couples in their churches.. that's another story. There are plenty of Wiccan priests and Unitarian churches around to perform the ceremonies. Why/how is this any different than a marriage in a mosque or a synagogue? The government recognizes those marriages, no problem. They will have a marriage between a Buddhist and a Jew in a courthouse, no problem. It is total hypocrisy for politicians to try claiming the moral high ground under the facade of being a "Christian government" when it comes to same-*** couples simply because it's an easy target (so colorful Smiley: grin) when they have no trouble legally recognizing any other non-Christian marriages.

Previous cases made news because they opened a window for people to get married in. This case didn't since the judge explicitly stayed the ruling pending appeal so you don't have that aspect. However, there's a strong judicial wave moving in favor of SSM rights and I suppose another win in Texas is noteworthy if only as part of the whole.
