    Color me shocked. A judge in Georgia is actually upholding the law before people's prejudices? Maybe this IS still the United States.

    sheesh, im kinda surprised actually that a judge from the south actually seems to abide by the law. i, for one, dont understand why gay marriages are even being questioned, but the ppl living in the land between california and the east coast (minus chicago of course ;) dont seem to see things so simply

    Gotta blame somebody. Terrorists were good for awhile. Abortion didn't really go anywhere. Immigration is kinda backfiring on them. Sorry, you guys (and gals, though we don't seem to mind lesbians as much for some reason) are pretty much all they have left. Good to see not everyone is still falling for it though.

    And duh, this law was totally unConstitutional.

    A nice victory, but probably a temporary one. This rule was slapped down on a technicality, not on its own merits (or lack of same). You can bet the idjits who passed this thing in the first place will be back with a revised version.

    I love it here. Been here almost 14 years. Best city in the US as far as I'm concerned. ;)

    Not really a victory, IMO. Like you said, it appears the Georgia court struck down the law based upon a technicality. The majority of folks in Georgia are selfish bigots and still want their silly law, technicalities be damned. Next time, they'll do it by the book. :mad:

    I understand Rove and gang will be using the Gay issue to get borderline Republicans into the polls. This could be the exact kind of thing they will use to say see see we need to fear the Gays:rolleyes: Mark my words but Rove and gang will be trying to get anti gay measures on the ballots just to get those people to the polls.

    I don't know how you guys put up with all this nonsense. I'm so glad to be European. Things aren't perfect here by a long way, but at least we have the basics right.

    At this point, I* might go marry a dude in Canada or EU to get outta here if it gets bad enough.

    (* I'm straight BTW, so you can see my point)
