I hope that California votes The Terminator out of office. I agree, gay marriage is coming. I hope it happens sooner than later. IT isn't asking for special rights, it is asking for what is rightfully ours in the first place. Very good points made, and I hope that California gets gay marriage this time. It isn't going away and I hope the gay people of California keep hammering away at it, until it becomes a reality. Maybe if California becomes gay marriage friendly, then Texas will be next. Arizona and New Mexico have thus far refused to allow bans on gay marriage, which in my mind, leaves the door wide open for them to allow it. I am hoping this "peer" pressure has the same effect on Texas.
Fundamentalist Churches can keep their ceremonies. Most of us won't darken their doorsteps anyway, we have our own churches that WILL marry us. The state has no right to ban anyone from marrying if they choose to do so. Gay marriage does not weaken straight marriage. It is no threat.
