92. it's cat television
Our dog barks at people walking by the house - She can only see anyone through the slat spaces in the gate (rest of the fence is a block wall). We call it doggie TV because it gives her pleasure and she thinks she is doing something.

Or at least some type of translating tool that can convert from "Idiot" to English.

183. AB 606 = "Safe Place to Learn Act"
The Safe Place to Learn Act would require school districts to enforce California's anti-discrimination and anti-harassment law and provides penalties for school districts found to be in violation of that law.

Status: Passed by Legislature. Vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger on September 28, 2006.

I'm struck by how long the gay couples have been together.

did you listen to Democracy Now today? a couple who have been together for 14 years will be married live on the show soon.

I don't know many straight couples who have the longevity of these couples -- myself included.

27. Doesn't allow them to take action on their hate
Those "Christians" say the bill discriminate against them because it doesn't allow them to discriminate against gays.

You know. Kinda like the Civil Rights Movement discriminated against racists by not allowing them to keep separate water fountains and burn crosses on lawns.

55. The Christians have no standing to sue.
They sued and lost because they had no standing.
Standing means that a plaintiff is personally affected by the legislation.

They could not prove that gay marriage would do anything to interfere in their freedom of religion, or their straight marriages, so they lost.

"Standing" is a simple principle of constitutional law, of all right to trial, actually.

i never could understand it. the only thing i can think of is that these folks have problems with their marriage/life and instead of looking into why that is, they blame it on the gay people trying to get married. my husband's best friend is gay. and there is nothing more that bob and i could want is for mike and his boyfriend, lee, to be able to have the same rights as we do. i do not feel threatened in any way by equal rights for everyone.

They're just all wrinkly and gross and can't have children anyway.

Everyone knows marriage is for the purpose of creating children.

It's a slippery slope.

What's next?

Letting two dead people get married?

21. Is the 7th picture the two women in their 80s?
One lady is 84 and the other 87, if I remember correctly. I heard about them this morning, that they have been together for more than 50 years. When Newsomme (sp?) heard about them, he moved them to the front of the line and they were the first couple to be married. Just a lovely, lovely story. :)

Maybe that's what some straight people are afraid of, being outdone by those evil gays who just might actually stay together longer than the Bible Belt teenie boppers who get married at 18 so they can have sex and are divorced at 31.

58. "being outdone by those evil gays"
I think you nailed it!

I have been trying to figure out WHY these dumbasses are so fucking concerned. I mean seriously, even they can't possibly believe that it will ruin their OWN marriage.

Nope, it's the contest side of things, just like when whites didn't want blacks in professional sports, and guys didn't want ladies in the service academies and etc. etc. This is the same thing, they are afraid they will "lose" or whatever.

Anyway, thanks for the insight...this has been bugging me, and I feel you have cut to the essence of it.

:thumbsup:

(ftr, I am a white male that has been with the same woman for 21 years, married for the last 16)

Remember when we here at Du were sending flowers to the couples waiting in line to get married in San Francisco, back when Newsome first told City Hall to issue the licenses? The pictures were all so sweet.

I think that seeing all these perfectly normal couples so happy in love will help a lot of people get more comfortable with the idea, don't you

People who would probably never get out in the street to protest a war that is killing many, but will make a bunch of hideous, misspelled, stupid banners to go protest a joyous occasion such as a wedding-specially these long overdue weddings. I will never understand what motivates such people :crazy:.

and family -- seems like they'd have to. But they probably just write it off to indigestion and keep hating.

42. Christians are crying "oppression"
Edited on Tue Jun-17-08 10:58 PM by ZombyWoof
The oppressors' first refuge is to claim they are the oppressed.

There was a twisted op-ed in the LA Times today about how gay marriages impinge on 'freedom of religion'. Last time I checked, there was no mention of a god in the Constitution, state or federal. There IS the 14th amendment. As for the 1st amendment, if people loving each other and committing to marriage, regardless of gender, have some magical powers in stopping another's constitutionally-protected practice of deity-worship, I am at a loss to explain it. Let freedom ring for both deity-worship-and-ritual-observance choice AND life partner choice! One does not need to negate the other.

Oh! Wait! I get it! The freedom to ostracize and deny rights to others is now a measure of 'religious freedom'. Shit, looking at Saudi Arabia, freedom of religion is busting out all over in that country. Or not.

I though religious freedom meant worshiping or not worshiping the deity or deities of one's choice or non-choice. Or observing the rituals of same. Or the absence of rituals. And throw in the parts about the prescribed dogmas one must adhere to (when convenient, of course), and the proscriptions masked as spiritual purity and "god's will", when they are actually just rationalizations of bigotry. So if the dogma of one's religion commands them to disparage homosexuality or the sanction of marriage for homosexuals, by all means, they are free to disparage. But that same freedom does not give one the concurrent freedom to deny others their life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

You can't yell 'fire' in a crowded theater, and you can't stop homosexuals from marrying just because some desert-dwelling crank wrote it down on some scrolls 2,000 years ago. The guys in the powdered wigs over 200 years ago were, mercifully for us, products of the Enlightenment and not the Bronze Age.

Let freedom ring!

43. I drove up to Napa Valley today to pick up used wine barrels
It's a Tuesday, I drove mid-day. I've done this a # of times before...


The traffic was terrible for awhile along 29 and 12. I couldn't figure out why.

After I loaded 12 1/2 barrels in the van and was heading back to Los Altos I heard a report on Green 960 that Napa Valley was filling w/ out of state couples going there to 'tie the knot'.


It made me smile (traffic going the other way was light as well!). :toast: :party: :bounce:

112. The only answer for such people is "If you don't believe in gay marriage,
don't enter into one."

My theory is that people who get all worked up about gay marriage fall into two classes:

1. Self-hating closet cases/clueless bisexuals (the obvious answer) and

2. People who feel that their lives are out of control and who cling to "traditional" values as the one thing they can believe in. When someone flouts the rules that they were brought up with, they see it as just one more example of the world falling apart. They're too uninformed to realize that their personal problems have nothing to do with GLBT people and everything to do with the power structures in this country, but it's to the benefit of the powers that be for the uninformed to continue believing that GLBT people are the number one problem in this country.

91. I'm struck by the sign that says "AB 606 is discrimination against
Christians"....um, did I miss something here? Are heterosexual marriages now illegal in CA?

Or did the law make christians unable to marry?

I don't get how it discriminates against x-tians to have other, committed couples in marriages.

Frankly, more loving marriages cannot make our country worse, it can only make it better.

And I'm a heterosexual, 40some, married woman living in Iowa.

But I just don't understand WHY it matters so much to some people what other people do? I mean, hell, if you believe its sinful or perverse, then fine, believe that, (because stupid is not illegal) but for cryin' out loud, what business is it of theirs who marries who????????

I just don't get these people. I really don't.

180. other issues?
But I just don't understand WHY it matters so much to some people what other people do?

That's my question, too. I can understand going out and demonstrating with others over something like the Iraq War. What I can't understand is getting excited about how someone else conducts their life. To go to all the trouble of traveling to the destination, perhaps making a protest sign, and even getting one's knickers in a knot over how other people want to conduct their life just seems odd to me.

Which leads me to speculate that maybe they're acting out over some other issue.

And I still have to wonder if some of these people aren't paid protestors. We've certainly seen that before.

Little do the protesters know that Jesus Christ is weeping - because of THEIR behavior, not from the joy being born, many times in His name, by these beautiful marriages. May their unions last for their lives and may those that harbor ignorant hate (and an ignorance of the language) be freed from their hate by an awakening that they're behaving like Satan would have them!

140. Amen to that!
I've observed that on an emotional level, gay relationships are just like straight relationships. I've seen the giddy joy of new love, the comfortable routine of "old married folks," the temporary insanity that can occur during a "divorce," and the wrenching grief of "widowhood."

They look exactly the same as straight relationships.

My church already performs same-sex marriages, although being in Minnesota, they have no legal standing. Yet since trends often start in California, it may not be long before some of those wonderful couples can go down to the courthouse and get themselves a legal piece of paper.

hubby and I wore matching polo shirts and blue jeans on the plane on our honeymoon. We still have them, although we can't fit into them! LOL. The love is so apparent between these people who have been together for so long. The hateful ones would just be pathetic if they weren't so dangerous.

123. I like the hate-mongers' argument
that gays will infect everyone. My mom and her girlfriend have been together since my parent's divorced when I was 10. I'm 30 now and happily married to a man (and, shock, my marriage didn't disintegrate in the last few days). My sister is also happily married to a man. My mom and her partner are practicing Catholics, respected members of their community. My sister and I are functioning human beings. We were just raised by two loving women who taught us right.

To hate-mongers everywhere, you will get what you deserve in the great beyond. Jesus never every preached hate, morans.

151. Yes. He and his fiance were the first to get their marriage license in W. Hollywood.

They've been together 21 years but somehow their love is an affront to god while Brittany's 24 hour marriage is keeping it real.

130. Such a shame
The woman holding the "AB 606 is discrimination against Christians" sign is quite pretty. What a contrast with the ugliness of her sign (and I'm not just talking about the headache-inducing yellow background).

This crowd looks similar to the bigots in Little Rock back then. Hate is hate no matter what god you blame it on.

That mother and daughter look identical in the first pic.

142. It was pretty eye-opening to see these people march on D.C.
So many people from across the country marching on D.C. for something that does not have anything to do with their own lives. Me and my buddy (definitely not gay) held each others' hands and stared at them (that was slightly gay but whatever) just to see the morans get pissed. It was well worth it for the reactions.

against Christians? Or any other group for that matter? HOW is giving one group the same rights that everyone else enjoys discrimination against anyone?

This shit just doesn't make sense.

because it has a cross on it.

It's not a right if not all those in society aren't born with it.

Happy faces. Celebrating with joy that on this day, Love Has Conquered All.

To my DUer friends in the GLBT Community, and those all across the world, I rejoice with you.

Blessings of happiness and love to you all.

171. Really don't like the word "pervert" but can't stop
people from tossing it around. It's worse than fag or queer etc.

Just like other people don't like the word "gay" next to the word "marriage".

A lot of this is a matter of semantics that disguises or reveales our inner feelings about gay stuff.

My sister in San Diego thinks gay marriage is wrong. She wouldn't consider coming to my wedding if I had one.

So what am I supposed to tell her to change her mind?

My gut feeling tells me that the "other side" will have their amendment banning gay marriage in California in November.

Just like they did here in Wisconsin. And then what? More struggle. :evilgrin:

Everyone here in California isn't quite as liberal as people think we are. I'm also quite apprehensive that the 'marredge-is-1-man-and-1-woman' amendment will pass here.

I mean I live in Alabama and I work with the public so I am surround by racist homophobes. Whats the saddest thing in my mind is that most of these people dont know why they hate gay people or black/muslims, they were raised that way and they were ruined from birth.

188. Thanks, BlueBear
and the wonderful DU family who've poured out their joy in this thread. It gives me hope that one day this nation might return to its senses. (Non-evolving morans excepted, sigh.) Marrying a couple who really want to be together is a particular joy; I love my job. In NC, I can perform spiritual unions, but I can't use the words "marriage" or "holy matrimony". How irritating. It would be so much sweeter to say "marriage" when I join a same-sex couple -- and file a completed license behind that. One of these days, I intend to be able to do just that.

I can't see how one "marriage" is more "valid" than another one -- it's what the partners put into it after the words are said over them that makes it go. Or not. (NB: my partner and I have been together for almost 13 blessed years. We've outlasted all the hetero marriages in my family. Go fig.) I'm pretty sure that The Fount of All Love approves of love wherever it's shared and celebrated.

Seems to me that the morans need to get a job and take a dose of Formula STFU. Clearly they have too much time on their hands. As Bill Maher put it, who cares who gets married to and quits having sex with whom? :D

Good on ya, California! To all the happy newlyweds, Blessed Be!
