    I can't imagine being that afraid of everything.

    "The No Marriage State" should look good on license plates, though.

    Finally a news source your Republican friends can love. SB will post shortly with a tear of joy.

    There appears to be a bright light at the end of the long, dark tunnel of ignorance and hatred for the Alabama GOPicon_idea.gif

    You might want to reread the article. What AL just did was the best move any state could do. All states should follow their lead. Basically they're putting marriage back to where it was originally: A private matter between two parties. The contract part is just to have a record of it so the financial and social benefits of marriage can continue uninterrupted. In other words, same-sex marriage will be legal there once this bill passes.

    Erm, there was a reason the olde Catholic Church stopped doing that recognition of marriage thing when you exchanged vows with the cow as witness behind the barn. Think about it for a moment.

    Joe: "We're here for a recognition document that we're married"

    Gov't: that'll be 100$ (the same $ as a marriage license)...wait..you're already on file as marrying Marnie.

    Joe: oh that, I divorced her in the backyard a month ago, then Lana and I married each other in the frozen section of the Safeway last week."

    Oh the religious are going to just love this, lol.

    You're right, of course - but my guess is that the intent was as homophobic as possible, and that this is a sort of tantrum about taking the toys and going home if people won't play by their rules.

    As long as the law makes the same assumptions about next of kin and spousal rights for registered couples as for licensed couples, I don't care whether there are marriage licenses or not.

    Was the original article a joke or did this really happen? The GOP seems to get crazier every day, so I can't tell.

    What makes a law valid?

    What if they didn't like a certain shade of red, say, pink, could they ban the use of all shades of red to get rid of pink?
