    I think this is fantastic. In my lifetime it was illegal.

    It shows that the world can change and that education, example, logic, good will, and tenacity works. Mose so the good will of people who can accept change, that allow others to be different but inclusive.

    Wonderful..but we need to roll this around the globe now.

  2. Progress.

    Of course it’s inevitable as more countries get on board. How can it not be? Even the swivel eyed loons in the Lords opposed to equal marriage conceded. I recall Baroness Butler-Sloss, among many others, one of the leaders of the opposition in the upper chamber admitted it before the conclusion of third reading.

    Maggie Gallagher, former leader of the National Organisation for Marriage (NOM) in America has acquiesced to the inevitable while remaining fiercely opposed.

  4. Just because there is a consensus about homosexuality and SSM doesn’t mean that it isn’t still wrong according to God. The Bible is very clear on Homosexuality. That doesn’t mean that it is the unpardonable sin, but nevertheless it is a sin according to God. The Bible is also clear on what type of behavior we will see as we approach Jesus’ return:

    But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

    24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
    26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
    28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

    Does any of this look familiar?

    1. The Bible is NOT clear at all about homosexuality; the religions that interpret it are VERY clear in their homophobic stance.
      In any case, who cares about a book written thousands of years ago, full of tales and contradictions? To me, it is not the word of God (if he/she even exists).

      Go F yourself, and take that religio-babble bull with you

      Some people are so heaven bound they are no earthly good.

    3. Sorry … but I think you have ALL fallen into the trap of believing that the bible is something other than a load of made-up nonsense. IT’S A NOVEL ….highly edited and written by men with an agenda …. full of silly, childish stories about talking snakes, women made from men’s ribs and people coming back from the dead. It’s superstitious claptrap designed to appeal to the gullible. You should go talk to a mental health professional who may be able to help you emerge from the state of self-delusion you so obviously occupy at present.

    4. Predictable. These words are those of Paul of Tarsus, a renegade Jew who put himself in charge of a new heresy of his religion and thus invented ‘Christianity’. They reflect his punitive and egomaniacal mindset and so are most frequently quoted by fundamentalist bigots.
      Jesus’ preoccupations seem to have been ethical and about getting the Jews to love one another before the imminent end of the world (something he and his followers got badly wrong, but, hey, it must feel like the end game when God’s People get conquered by pagan Romans who rough them up at the slightest excuse).
      He would have been baffled by Paul and the repressive mystical nonsense he invented about him; which is why Paulinists like conservative Christians appealing to Jesus’ authority is so wonderfully ironic.

  5. And 33% are delusional Tea Baggers who live in an alternate, Fox News universe.

  6. To you, Carl?
    “There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death.”
    Fortunately, I am not one of the so heaven bound…. no earthly good people. I don’t like them either.
    I just believe in God and the Bible.

    1. I believe in Peter Pan and the Tooth Fairy. But, for some reason, when I try to convince others, no-one takes me seriously. It’s a constant source of amazement to me why anyone takes ‘believers’ of other fairy stories so seriously … especially when THOSE believers think they have a god-given (pun intended) right to impose their views on the rest of civilisation. In my experience, many gay people (especially of a certain age) can be MUCH more homophobic and self-hating than non-gays because of religious anti-gay dogma they’ve been conditioned to accept. Don’t you agree, Majesty?

    2. Believe in any irrational rubbish you please. Just make sure you f@@@@ off.

    3. To you, Majesty?
      I pity you for believing fairy tales, and using them to feel good about yourself while bashing others that don’t agree with your delusions. That’s religion.
