Which state will be the last to legalize gay marriage?


I think you need to look at this scientifically and based on Psychological projection I would say the state with the most closet gays will fight it the longest.

Welp, it's legal now here in my county, Kansas. We'll see what Monday brings as the Supreme Court addresses it again. If it becomes legal in all counties, it should hopefully become a non issue.

Irony alert:

Oklahoma takes a page out of sharia law and attempts to make marriage only for religious people.


Oklahoma House passes bill restricting marriage to people of faith
March 11, 2015 by Michael Stone Leave a Comment

A bill that would restrict the right to marry to people of faith and would mandate all marriage licenses be approved by a member of the clergy was approved by the Oklahoma state House on Tuesday.

The bill, approved by a Republican majority, now goes to the state Senate for consideration.

House Bill 1125, sponsored by Republican State Representative Todd Russ, is a radical measure that would end secular marriage licenses in the state. In addition, the bill would bar all judges and other secular officials from performing marriages in Oklahoma.

If this bill passes non-religious people can't get married in Oklahoma. In Florida it's illegal and you can be jailed for living together before marriage. Hmmm... I guess it's a good thing Oklahoma doesn't have a similar law.

They hate everything, they would like to secede from the union.


Yeah they got 100k signatures I heard. There is also 2 succession movements here. One is for Long Island+ Manhattan to form the 51 st state and the other is for us to just LEAVE the union and become like Singapore and HK before they went back to China. Our new country would be able to join the G20! :)



And no Vlad, it is not about the majority votes, that's a very sad idea really considering the deep level of bigotry here, it is often the few that fight for the needs of the minorities that deserve the same equal rights but can't get there because the majority would like them to go away.


True but the system we have also allows minority groups to be able to gain power and control over the will of the majority if they have the clout(money). When I say minorities that includes big business as well. Our system which originally was to protect minorities so they were inclusive and not discriminated against has gotten to the point that well funded, organized groups can actually control and influence. Hollywood/media actually has bought off much of congress and they introduce laws to congress directly. Imagine that! Pharmaceutical companies are doing the same. They are telling the FDA(paid and bought) that Canadian drugs that they bought from us are inferior lol.

And the Jewish lobby is obviously in control of a lot both nationally and locally. Here the Jewish community gets away with buying old police cars and command trucks and have their own police force where they go on patrol and make citizens arrests lol. I know a Lt that got transferred because a cop on his tour ticketed a Rabbi's vehicle in Boropark( center of Orthrodox community). 66 pct was nicknamed FORT SURRENDER because the community controls it. And the real Jewish religious cops get Friday night off. The Irish and Italians are complaining that they should get Sunday off. But they don't have the clout.

Oh yeah and the SHE-HE cop gets his/her own locker room and cushy assignment, never on patrol.

Sometimes , some are fighting for more than equal rights! Some get super rights!

Once they experience the cost of divorce the taste won't be so sweet


True but in USofA we have a different issue. Since most health care is based on a workers insurance you now have the health insurance marriages. They were some of them before but now same sex roommates will have additional incentives. I recently saw a show that had a hilarious take on it!

I am not knocking it..since my father basically has a domestic partner under his coverage, but it was a way for him to avoid marriage Lol. Here the decision will be more based on economics than in some other countries.

Maybe Pennsylvania?

Is this what they're teaching the youngsters there?

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/pa-high-schoolers-dress-up-for-anti-gay-day/ar-AAbs2qE?ocid=HPCDHP


A band of Pennsylvania high schoolers in matching flannel shirts slapped hateful posters on gay students’ lockers and drafted a “lynch list” to mark their self-concocted “Anti-Gay Day,” students said.

As many as 100 students at Claysville’s McGuffey High School took part in the Thursday protest a day after the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance held its Day of Silence. GSA’s day was organized to draw attention to and condemn bulling against gay students, according to the Observer-Reporter.

The homophobic students, mostly boys, wore flannel shirts on the same day and wrote “anti-gay” and drew crosses on the backs of their hands. The group stuck intimidating posters on gay students’ lockers and scuffled with Gay-Straight Alliance members and their supporters, student Zoe Johnson told WPXI.

Australia can't legalise gay marriage because our Constitution defines marriage as the union of a Man and a Woman.

And we all know you can't go fvcking around with ya Constitution now can ya? It is like that "right to bear arms thing" which is part of the US Constatuzion, ya just can't fvck with it.

Homophobic isn't even an accurate word....people misuse works make up definitions and what not to fit their agendas...whenever anyone disagrees with or expresses their disagreement with aberrant sexual deviant life style choices made by some people those who condone them try to label those who disagree as phobic.

Ummm to "condone" means to support or agree with for starters.
So that's the first inaccurate word .

Aberrant sexual deviant lifestyle choice?

And you disagree and judge based on what premise then if not homophobia?

I'm more inclined to label him as extremely judgmental, not necessarily phobic.

But that is what the far right conservatives do. They sit in judgment over the rest of us "deviants".

Changing the Australian Constitution

The Australian Constitution can only be changed with the approval of the Australian people. A proposed change must be approved by the Parliament and then be put to Australians in a referendum. All Australian citizens on the electoral roll vote 'yes' or 'no' to the proposed change. A referendum is only passed if it is approved by a majority of voters in a majority of states, and by a majority of voters across the nation. This is known as a double majority. Territory voters are only counted in the national majority. Since 1901, 19 referendums have proposed 44 changes to the Constitution; only eight changes have been agreed to (see Referendums and Plebiscites).

Senate committee supports conscience vote on gay marriage

18 June 2012

A Senate committee has recommended that all political parties allow their members a free, or conscience, vote in the Parliament on the issue of marriage equality. This was one of the main recommendations made by the Senate Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs in a report on the Marriage Equality Amendment Bill 2010.

The bill was introduced into the Senate by Senator Sarah Hanson-Young in September 2010. It is one of three private member’s bills currently before the Parliament which seek to amend, or change, the Marriage Act 1961 to legalise same-sex marriage. The other two bills were introduced in the House of Representatives in February.

In a speech to the Senate, Senator Hanson-Young said the bill would ‘provide equality for same-sex couples [by removing] discrimination under the Marriage Act so that while marriage is still a union between two consenting adults, it is not defined by gender'.

The committee called on the Senate to pass laws to allow same-sex marriage. However, some opposition members of the committee released a dissenting report opposing a conscience vote and any change to the Marriage Act.

Earlier, the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs tabled a report into the two private member’s bills before the House. It recommended changing the Marriage Act ‘to ensure equal access to marriage for all couples who have a mutual commitment to a shared life’.

However, the committee said that while its report ‘aims to inform the parliament in its debate’, it is up to the Parliament to decide whether to pass the bill. The committee received a record 276 000 responses during its inquiry. Nearly two-thirds were in support of same-sex marriage.

based on the norms of our society...only 3% of the population self identify as homosexual,bi, transgender etc...the majority choose to live heterosexual lifestyles therefore those who choose homosexual lifestyles are deviants...

Perhaps I'm mistaken? Were you not making a moral judgment against them? Based on your previous posts, it was assumed.

Funny how the right-wingers call me a leftie and the left-wingers call me a rightie.

As I've said before, how dare I disagree with the "party line".

I welcome the day this topic isn't even an issue, when any two adult in love can marry if they wish.

Love is love. It's a great thing
To witness and have yourself.
Why hate love?
It's STUPID, nonsensical to have these phobics.
Love between two gay people have been around forever. No one and nothing can stop it.
Even though the barriers are breaking which is the upside to all this, we still have a long way to go.
Even if all the states allowed marriage, it won't stop the phobics. :(

Anyone that wants to prohibit same sex consenting adult marriage wants to throw out our Constitution and destroy the Republic, period. So many bigots wave our flag and have no grasp of the reality they actually despise it. Where are the ACTUAL conservative Republicans that were crucial in passing landmark civil rights legislation becuase of broad opposition from Southern Democrats? Today's hordes of unAmerican, divisive, bigoted, and judgmental ________s are of course in reality a far greater National Security Concern than IS, Al Qaeda, etc.

"Long live the Republic! Let Freedom Ring!" For everyone.

Based on your logic then all Jews are religious deviants since Jews comprise .2% of the world population.

Mr. Irish, people who think the LGBT community are "deviants" don't use logic, they just use hate, stupidity and bigotry. As you have stated before "you can't fix stupid".

It is a sad existence when you walk through life with blinders on.

Homosexuality is a mental disorder. After "gay marriage" gets done they will want to "marry" little boys.
