the same way we now look back on those against interracial marriage years ago? Isn't it exactly the same thing? So will it likely result in the same type of view 40 years from now, or is something special about this time that makes it different?

I think some people are a little more critical of out of wedlock babies and mixed marriages, and divorce, than you might think after all this time, but otherwise I'm with you all the way. Agree.
As usual Au fait, no argument from me on UR "exceptions." Just seems to me that "those" people have become much less VOCAL and/or publicly judgmental in terms of their criticism ( for simple self protection! LOL) Then there are the unflinching, yes!
Wow, I don't believe I could have said it better. I am glad you are a generation ahead of me and have the views you do (no hit on your age I promise). Progress happens, it's amazing! Learning, and changing. 2 good things! Happy about the clerk BTW.
Paula, those people tend to hang together like birds of a feather, so anyone not of same mind might think they had gone away, and yes, in general their voices are more muted, but not amongst themselves.
LOL, Au fait...I just happen to KNOW a few of them. Rest my Mom's soul, she was a DOOZY! She had hard core opinions & beliefs and if U were in earshot...you KNEW what they were!! Never changing, but it was all good! :)
I see that the current headline is that a Judge ordered her locked up. The County Clerk, that is.
Yes, Ms. Davis is in jail until she decides to do her job. Instead of grandstanding and pretending to be persecuted, why doesn't she just resign and get a job more along lines that fit her religious beliefs?
Happy so many are able to be open now, but there is a long way to go. I hope my children see a generation of kinder people. Happy to see the clerk, and maybe her son will be going to jail! They are there to do the people's work, no place for religion
Hmmm, I'm not keeping up w/ this story! Her son? He works there too? Ah, I see It's a family affair. Maybe she divorced 3 men because they wouldn't go to church wi/ her? #4 should probably be the Pastor.
I read her son is also employed there and while the other people who work there said they would issue the licenses while clerk was in jail, son said he would not. Don't take my word, story was in FB feed, unsure of accuracy.
Love your answer Eric!! Thank you!
It really isn't logical is it? The fact that being gay or cohabitation was never illegal, yet people doing something completely legal were/are discriminated against when it comes to marriage. I agree, more important issues they could be working on.
Aww go ahead peeples, you can hit my age. In fact pretty girl, one day you WILL hit it!! LMAO! Yes, poor Kim is behind bars & this is far from the end of her troubles. She needs to understand a whole LOT!
I can only hope so. It makes no sense why so many are worried about what two consenting adults choose to do when it comes to marriage.
None of what you just said makes any sense to me at all.
I read your comment 3 x's...slowly. I'm gonna have to agree with Austin. I kept repeating, "HUH????" That's not good.
Blah blah gay marriage is a sin blah blah gay people can't have babies blah blah marriage belongs between a man and a woman because God said so blah blah blah
The damning/rewarding threats never worked for me. Also Leviticus is not followed by Christians unless it is the part said to be about gays. If anyone should be using it I would think it would be Jews. I really don't understand picking and choosing.
Thank you Austinstar, you might be right...--PAULA, Your sincerity is much appreciated. Bless you....-- ALME, very interesting respond isn't it ?
