Anti-gays in DC lose appeal

Timothy Kincaid

July 15th, 2010

From the Christian Science Monitor

The District of Columbia Court of Appeals effectively upheld gay marriage in the nation’s capital by legitimizing the city’s decision to block a popular vote on the issue.

In a 5-4 decision published Thursday, the court agreed that Washington’s Board of Elections and Ethics had the right to deny an initiative measure on the city’s recently passed law legalizing same-sex marriage.

Opponents of the law, led by area pastors, were confident that the majority of Washingtonians would have voted against gay marriage if given the chance.

The past week hasn’t been good for anti-marriage activists.

I would suppose that a majority of Washingtonians at one time did not object to public slave auctions in DC. We have come a long way in terms of respect for the rights for minority groups and protections of individual liberty.

I would agree, Tim. They are not having a good week.

Anti-gays,
I find it interesting, that almost every time anti-gay issues are dealt with, no one would refur to the Scriptures.
Most people on this Planet believes that God created Man and woman that He created the Animels.
We don’t see two male or two female of any Animel specie mating.
why men and women want to mate with each other.
Gog made woman for man, not man for man. Nor woman for woman.
Genesis 1: 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Irest my case if some one have a better solution of how man and woman begin life on this planet produce the evidence

Don’t worry Cecil – apparently your god sent an earthquake this morning to punish DC for this decision. Of course, it was a very weak 3.6 and resulted in almost no damage (ok, one dead tree did fall on a fence), so maybe your god isn’t quite as powerful as the real God.

Oh, and you should check out Biological Exuberance by Bruce Bagemihl, which describes the hundreds of God’s animal species, in addition to humans, that have been shown to engage in homosexual and/or bisexual behavior.

Actually according to your scriptures God created man first and thought that was good enough. So why isn’t it good enough for men to only need other men? :P
