Gay Marriage to become legal in Delaware from 1 July 2013
The state of Delaware has voted to allow legally recognised Gay Marriages from 1 July 2013. Your reaction please post it here....
50 years from now we'll look back and wonder what the big deal was on "marriage equality". It wasn't until 1967 that the federal government struck down all laws that forbid "interracial marriage". That was only 46 years ago! According to recent surveys the younger generation is overwhelmingly supportive of "marriage equality" laws.
I believe it is just a sign of the times. People are getting mighty sick and tired of hearing the conservative religious bigots preaching hatred toward this group of Americans.
It is time that ALL Americans enjoy the same status and equality.
As dashingscorpio stated we had the same stupid protesting before blacks, women, and interracial marriages gained equal status. This is just one more step in the evolution of intelligence in this country - and hopefully the world.
And yes, the younger generation is much smarter than the last one. Now all we need to do is get bigotry out of Washington and Religion.
Did anyone ever stop to think about calling same sex unions marriage? Give them the same rights as a married hetero-couple. Make laws to protect their rights. But why curse them into a failing institution. I love my marriage past 7 years that is rare
It is not the name, it is the principle. By calling same sex marriages by another name it is implying that the love between those people have a lesser value in our society. U can't understand what that means until U R on the receiving end of bigotry
d. william that is horse pa tutti. It is different. Pretending it is the same cheapens and lessons it. It is different. It is not the same. Good bad or indifferent it is different. Are they ashamed of that? Then it surely is not good. Proud and gay.
'Same but different' is NOT equality. It means one is second rate. Even the same rights - it's still viewed as second rate. Not equal.
Eric: horse pa tutti right back at ya.There R no differences in the love 1 has 4 another & marriage must B equal 4 everyone. No 1 has the right to judge another 4 any reason. U can't dole out equality in degrees. religion does that - law must no
Ah horse pucky. If different equals lack of equality, then how do we "celebrate diversity"? If differences are always negative what would be positive? Why would one group want to join another that has about a 50% failure rate? Is it the religion?
E.D. UR logic amuses me.There is a big difference between diversity,equality&discrimination.I no U no the difference.We also discriminate against diversity.Religion is the biggest cause.UR last comment sums it all up.no 1 s/b ashamed of who we R
Well d. William you may have hit the nail on the head. I suppose I projected, as I am ashamed my first marriage ended in divorce. I know I should not be but I am. So that probably skews my views.
Just barely crawling out of the dark ages, but it's a start.
One state at a time, slowly America is treating its inhabitants as equal.
Realising slowly that Love is Love is Love and that same sex marriage will harm none, nor will it affect anyone else bar those actually in the marriage in question.
This is certainly an indication of our nation's decline. No nation has ever become stronger or more stable through the acceptance of this deviant practice.
I thought the Ancient Greeks had over a thousand year run. I thought the Roman empire 500 years. Of course the Khan dynasties also lasted awhile. But maybe you are right.
You're a real smarty, aren't you? What you said still doesn't disprove the fact that nations do not become stronger or more stable accepting this practice.
Well yes I am a smarty britches, and I do think your point is very valid for discussion. But we really do not know how this will work, as those mentioned observed it as a right of the state, we are seeing it as a human right. That difference maybe.

I just want to know: Do you agree with same-sex marriage or gay marriage?Marriage is sacred, God created Men and Women to be one flesh.If you agree, why? If not, why?

I have mixed feelings about a Presbyterian convocation recently held. At least they have tabled the discussion of the nature of marriage for another few years before rushing off the deep end like they have done...
