I can't believe no one has started a thread anywhere on this historic news:

www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la...

Apparently the black community is NOT of one accord on the matter of same-gender marriage after all, just like "the Church" (TM, all rights reserved).

I'm surprised it took so long.

Knock and the door shall open.  It's not my fault if you don't like the decor.

Only 2 dissenters.  There is hope. 

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize what you heard was not what I meant...

Yes there is hope. I hope I see SS marriage legalised in my life time in the U.S..

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

Cap'n,


It is, in effect, already that. New York has not residency requirement to get legally married in that State, so any American gay couple CAN get legally married now. Next step is for equal government recognition before the laws for those perfectly legal marriages.

Yes that is true. I am very proud of New York for that. But am still disturbed by the lack of federal recognition, that everyone deserves.

That is why the mis-named "Defense" of Marriage Act must be repealed or overturned.

I'm really surprised this isn't a major discussion, especially in light of Colin Powell's endorsement today.
