It's funny that in James Dobson's letter to 2012, he is all afraid that Boy Scout troop leaders who are gay will be allowed to sleep in the same tent with young boys. But these same people who ban gay marriage, will allow them to adopt or foster kids? (Sarcastically) If gay people are known pedophiles and lechers, then why the hell adopt kids out to them? This makes no sense.
I guess adopting kids is considered less of a crime against God than allowing two people who love each other to get married.
You can adopt kids and raise them together,you can act like a family, but God forbid you ruin the sanctity of marriage by attempting to get married. You can mess with the family just not marriage.
They give us bits and pieces of it but not the whole thing.
This is really stupid. We can live together, we can raise children together, but can't get married. Can't file taxes together, or anything else that smacks of being together. Dumb, dumb, dumb!!!!!
I am glad they got to adopt these two boys. Maybe someday they can get married. Nonetheless, a piece of paper does not a family make.
Today's ruling is a victory.
Of course some of the laws won't make sense when you apply the nonsense arguments against the others. That's why they call it nonsense.
I honestly don't see any of the laws changing until they're challenged to the top levels on grounds of constitutionality. There's a growing record of judges ruling for civil rights while citizens vote out of fear and/or bigotry.
It's coming. Frustrating that it's taking so long, but it's coming.
