    A ‘sad’ day, now that gay people have equal rights? Those people are sick. Amazing people in love can now get married, so suck it up. My best friend is going to get married to his boyfriend in Delaware next year, and there is nothing these people can do about it now. Good luck across the pond – I hope your government legalizes same-sex marriage asap :)

    As the Simpsons Nelson might say:

    HaHa!

  3. well it is true that all the other countries that have legalized same-sex marriage have had terrible “unintended consequences” (sarcasm)

  4. I believe the Netherlands were first to legalize equal marriage. They are still doing fine. So are the states that already legalized it.

    1. Indeed, but why would these people let a little thing called facts get in the way of their scaremongering?

    You’d think Minnesota was the I first jurisdiction to legalise SSM the way these folks go on as opposed to something like the 32nd. People aren’t idiots, in Minnesota they only have to look north to Canada or south to Iowa to see that these claims are baseless lies.

  6. “Religious liberty”???? They mean “religious BIGOTRY”! A person’s FICTITIOUS “beliefs” do NOT justify their right to bigoted over REAL people! Your “religious liberty”? You have the “right” to believe what you want but you do NOT have the right to IMPOSE your beliefs on other people! Yes, you WILL be called “bigots” because that is EXACTLY what you are!

  7. Christ said marriage is the union of a man and a woman FOR LIFE. These people ought to get out and campaign to criminalise divorce (now at 45% in the US). But of course they don’t. I doubt most of them give a toss about marriage, they just don’t like ‘fags.’

  8. If only their predictions were true.

    However, the fact is, with the exception of gay people, everyone will carry on with their lives as before.

  9. Fűck off, homophobes!
    We are fed up with your religious nonsense and alarming lack of intelligence!

  10. “—it also fails to protect the most basic religious liberty rights of those who believe based on their faith that marriage can only be the union of one man and one woman.”

    Ok, if this is the case, then I can found a religious sect, based on belief that black people can’t drive cars. So the state has no other choice but to ban blacks on driving in order to protect my religious beliefs. Amen!

    The unintended consequences might prove to be happier citizens, more honesty, and an increase in tourism.

    What an idiot! Every act or word has unintended consequences, so this is nothing new in the least. Vacuous simpletons! They cannot seem to think clearly about anything….I think they all need court-ordered medication myself, they seem to be mentally defective in some way…..so many are like this I’m beginning to wonder if it is a disease…. It is rather apparent that they should not be allowed to reproduce…shall we vote on their ‘right’ to have children, then?

  13. The statement went on to claim that religious liberty is at threat, and that religious people in the state will be called “bigots”…….well if the cap fits, then wear it.

    I am pleased that in only 6 or so months, Minnesota has passed equal marriage.

    Those against it need to realise that not only is it the right thing but also that their own local economy will improve massively by this new legislation, to the tune of millions of dollars.

    Given time, people will wonder what all the fuss was about.

  14. The fundamentalist Chicken Little’s cry, “The sky is falling, the sky is falling!” Well this was done 12 years ago in the Netherlands and so far that sky has not fallen.
