Good, I hope that means within 10-20 years we’ll have gay marriage.

Im in that age bracket and they were never “winning” with me and my peers anyway.

It always brings joy to my heart to see Focus on the Family losing.

Regarding gay marriage: I don’t think there is any way for them to turn back the clock on this.  It’s so obviously a matter of fairness, justice, and equality.  It still outrages me that my friends have to wait for their marriages to be lawful in the eyes of the federal gov’t (if not the state gov’t – woot woot Massachusetts!), but at least we’re moving in the right direction.

@2dBride:  Gracias; I didn’t know this. I’ve grown up in and lived in really large, progressive cities so sometimes this stuff really baffles my mind.  I cna’t imagine what it’s like to be in like Alabama or Mississippi or something.

I think it’s being seen less as a religious issue and more as a political issue. It’s the societal issue front that is still being fought. Most people who are against it probably couldn’t care less if you have a piece of paper in your filing cabinet that says you’re married. It’s when they confront it in day to day life that it burns them. And it’s true that it’s very difficult to do things like explain to your children why the things you teach them are so drastically different from what they encounter in society.

@MrsSl82be:  I hope so too but older people need to die off to get that majority.  Hopefully I don’t sound mean.

They’ve been fighting a losing battle for a while now.

Can I also just say how pissed I am at the Minnesota legislature:

This girl = Pissed

We had better not pass this nonsense next year.

They may consider it “losing” but I’ll put down this news as winning in my book!

It’s good stuff! The last few national polls show a majority of Americans are supportive of gay marriage. 

HOWEVER, it would be really nice if we could just stop putting minority rights up for a vote, knowwhatimsayin?
