Oregon Skipped the Same-Sex Fight for Good Reason


WAshingtonians, LISTEN UP:

If you fuck this up, don't bother coming down to Oregon again, ok. Stay on YOUR side of the bridge. Stop taking OR jobs. And get use to paying sales tax on EVERY purchase. Especially you dirty filthy Vantuckians.
^or what??? You gonna go smash some innocent business owners windows???

Ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Hello stalker. I see you follow EVERY post of mine now.
Yes, so glad we waited to ask for our rights. Because trying to win it in the 2012 election would have been expensive and not a sure thing. BRO is right. Winning your civil rights is supposed to be cheap and easy, just like it always has been. Successful civil rights movements have always sat on their hands and waited around for things to get easier. I say we wait as long as it takes! What a tragedy it would have been to try too soon! Because of course all worthwhile election victories are cheap and easily won.
People's rights should not be up for public vote America was founded on religious freedom, we should instead ban people who want to ban things.
Everything both Michael and Erik said!!!!!
Kudos to Alaska Airlines for its support. For an airline with the strange Christian messages on its cocktail napkins, it's cool to see they have an entire "gay travel" section of their site that includes their 74 endorsement prominently. Good business, sure, but also commendable.
My bad! I guess they stopped handing out the prayers on Alaska flights. Where have I been?
SUCK it Oregon. Washington rules. Yes. Vancouver sucks - I live there. But the rest of the state is amazing.
If same gender couples wish to gain privileges, then the solution is to sue under Equity Law. However, they must face the reality that United States law is based upon the proper use of English grammar. If you could change the law by re-writing the dictionary, there would be no need for the legislature. Laws are interpreted by the meaning of words at the time that the law is enacted If a legal term need be applied, try domestic partnership or civil union.

1828 edition of Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language


MAR'RIAGE, n. [L.mas, maris.] The act of uniting a man and woman for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and woman for life. Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity,and for securing the maintenance and education of children.

Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled. Heb.13.

1. A feast made on the occasion of a marriage.

The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king, who made a marriage for his son. Matt.22.

2. In a scriptural sense, the union between Christ and his church by the covenant of grace. Rev.19.
Nobody but me is willing to explain, that the fatal flaw which gets any proposed measures nullified, is the improper use of the word, "marriage". If a measure is written nonsensically, then it has to be tossed out. Gibberish could never be enforced. If couples want to call their domestic partnerships, marriage, after the fact, they are perfectly free to do so.

Please wait...
