A nifty little cartoon...
My stepdad sent me this nifty little cartoon by Tom Tomorrow:
And in case you can't read it, the quote under the title says, "After more than two centuries of American jurisprudence...a few judges and local authorities are presuming to change the most fundamental institution of civilization." --George W. Bush
The note in his hand at the end says, "TO DO: 1. Scapegoat-GAYS"
Oregon county bans all marriages
Take a good look at this : BBC News : Oregon county bans all marriages
Great decision ! :spray: Others should follow in protest !
Confused by the twists and turns of the US gay marriage issue, Oregon's Benton County has decided to err on the side of caution and ban all weddings.
Until the state decides who can and cannot wed, officials in the county have said no-one can marry - even heterosexual couples.
They hit upon the plan to ensure that none of the county's 79,000 residents are subject to unfair treatment.
Gay marriage has proved controversial, deeply dividing US public opinion.

HOWABE dont believe everything you say...
Sorry, I'm late.. just discovered this topic. No time either to read everything, just across and diagonal reading. Sorry too if I repeat what has allready been said..
BUT what "howabe" said :
"The sole purpose in a human's life is the procreate. Homosexuals don't have children. Therefore they are a pointless defect that in no way leads to the furtherment of the human species."
is real bullsh....
Sorry ! Animal have that sole purpose, but really ? Why are they here in the first place ?
And, my dear HOWABE, believe me when I tell you that I know what I'm talking about : (because I was born a woman and an homosexual)
1) I'm not on earth for the sole purpose of multiplication and procreation. Absolutely not ! I would be extremely unhappy if I were...
2) As a woman, I have the most powerfull possibility to procreate WITHOUT ASKING YOU OR ANYONE ANYTHING, or not. I have that choice, whether I'm a lesbian or not.
3) Admittedly, gay women have more power in this field than men.
4) It does'nt stop the gay community to adopt CHILDREN THAT ARE IN NEED OF A HOME SO AS NOT TO DIE within the next days, weeks, months or year. That will also help a lot in the fields of the survival of the species...
I hope dear Howabe, that you have other goals in your life than just trying to make copies of yourself...
So, I'm wondering how you all feel about this subject. Do you agree with Mr. Bush that same-sex unions are sinful and should be banned? Do you think that homosexual couples should have the right to be legally married, same as heterosexual couples? Or you're not sure? Let's have a little discussion.
First, about Bush, no one should care about what he thinks, he should be away within months, so, what's the worry.
Then, as it has been said (by mieboy21 I think) the most important is to give love and care and respect. No need for official ties to do so.
Finally, who wants toi get married or pacsed, anyway ? Just to imitate "regular couples" ?
Not worth it.
Just to prove something to your partner ? That's not the proof he wants.
To feel more secure ? Well it might work for some. I know any kind of "official" ceremony, be it religious or civilian, would make me feel like entering into a jail, just because of the complications to get out again...
I'm sure many hetero couples would feel the same.
