    So far California, Massachusetts and now Connecticut have legalized marital rights for same sex couples.

    It seems like progress is being made and I have no idea how long before it becomes country wide I'm guessing it's quite possible within 4 years and both presidential candidates have stated they want it left up to individual states.

    I was wondering which will the last (aka the most conservative and backward thinking) State to recognize recognize sex marriage?

    I wouldn't bet on 4 years, but it's a safe bet it'll probably be Mississippi or Alabama. Some states continue to carry sodomy laws on their books (as a sort of protest) even though the Supreme Court struck them down in 2003 in Lawrence vs. Texas.

    Some states carried miscegenation laws on the books up until just a couple of years ago even though those were struck down in 1967 by the Supreme Court in Loving vs. Virginia.

    I bet this will be taken care of by federal law before all 50 states do what is right. The federal government was able to intervene in state marriage laws before, so they will do it again.

    I will be shocked when my state of Kentucky will recognize gay marriage.

    Nebraska.

    As far as I know we have the most anti-gay marriage, anti-civil union legislation in the nation. Ironically, our state motto is Equality Before the Law. And our Atty Gen has been quoted as saying something to the effect of homosexuality is like pedophilia and bestiality.

    A whopping 70% of voters voted in the legislation to ban gay marriage here. 70%! Even South Dakota only passed theirs with a 51% or near there.

    Hell, its still perfectly legal to infect your partners with HIV here. Some FYI to those who travel to party here.

    My first guess was Mississippi, with Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama or Georgia after that.

    Pity the US can't go like Canada and have the same rights across the country. It would make a lot more sense.

    I imagine it'll go federal before each state OKs it, but if we're going state by state, how about Utah?

    Even if it is taken care of by the federal government when it gets to be a majority.



    There will still be a state which is the last to a marry gay couple.

    I'm thinking will it be one we suspect or an unsuspecting one, and thinkin git will make for an amusing headline
