MONTPELIER, Vt. — The Vermont Legislature on Tuesday overrode Gov. Jim Douglas’s veto of a bill allowing gay couples to marry, mustering one more vote than needed to preserve the measure.

Gay marriage

Attempts have been made to scientifically articulate sexual preference and physical sexual traits (Masters and Johnson). It is clear that there are degrees of sexual preference and physical traits. The only remaining scientific debate is measuring the subdivisions of the scale in between.



All the symbols, language and rituals involved in marriage are purely subjective exercises. Meaning is in people, not in things. Religion is nothing but a tool that dictates and reinforces… Continue

Are Republicans Haunted by these Numbers?

"Them Dems" may not have captured every seat up for grabs, but Congress took on a… Continue

Marriage is religious and mysogynystic.

Religion is so influential that even atheists talk about marriage as though it was normal. I've added some more details to the main page of AtheistInsurgency.com and in the process began to think about why government has such a strong hand in marriage.



Marriage is a religious institution, is not congruent with nature, allows the government to apply privileges and penalties to married couples that unmarried individuals would not… Continue
