Jason,
That's a great insight! Thanks!

Actually the etymology for the word marriage is of Latin origin. The implication was of a male's dominance when selecting a concubine for the sole purpose of rendering an offspring, particularily a male, thereby perpetuating the man's lineage. Furthermore, it was common for men to share sexual experiences with other men regerdless of their matrimonial status. So realistically the fight for gay unions in the context marriage is not necessarily about fighting for the privilege to marry as much as it is deemed a social status which carries with it privileges which are denied to others. This country has unjustifiably granted favortism to heterosexual married couples with children crossing the invisible line between church and state.

I think yall are taking the pic all wrong. I would expect the most practical interpretation is that both are single straight men who want to marry women. I've seen paper moon photos like that before with only one man or woman in the shot. But then, you never can tell. I refuse to totally rain on this parade:)

well.. as non-theists.. im not sure why we would want "marriage" to begin with since the word in and of itself is religious (biblical even I believe) in origin

It's really heartwarming.

Dallas, is that for real, or a modern staging, or photoshopped? It looks for real. In which case it's awesome.

Strange, the video says it's closed captioned (click on the arrow at far right), but the captions don't actually turn on even though the video says the captions are on. Oh well, that means I can't participate in watching this video.

Not exactly what I hoped to see:


How heartwarming that people of all colors can come together in their support and celebration of bigotry, quoting MLK "We shall overcome".

The "Ricky Martin Is Gay!" news made me laugh, as it wasn't news to so many of us.
