They will need a Priest to preside over their weddings.

I think that is absolutely counter-productive to being gay.

Nevada’s a lot more conservative than you might think, but of course in odd ways. Gambling? Okay! Prostitution? Okay! Same-sex marriage? Now hold on, there…

Having a priest, or getting married?

(Looks at status)

Uh, feel free to take your time responding…

From New York, congratulations to Rhode Island for passing their marriage equality bill. Hopefully, the other states will follow suit soon.

Because a preist is usually anti-queer. Does not make sense to me.

Maybe, but that’s not always the case, nor does it make any sense of what you said previously. Really that’s why I asked before, because “I think that is absolutely counter-productive to being gay.” on the face of it makes no sense. My understanding is that being gay is supposed to be something one is or is not, and thus “counter-productive” would mean…what? Do you mean that if a priest disapproves of a person being gay, that will somehow make them less gay?

I’ve known a lot of LGBT people in my life, including a large portion of my high school and college friends. Over the years, my opinion of the moral status of same-sex relationships has evolved in all sorts of different manners and directions, and as it happens, I’m an ordained baptist minister. (I wonder how many KYM users knew this about me in the 3+ years I’ve been here?) With all of that, I don’t recall a single time that I have changed anyone’s sexual preference or, for that matter, decision as to whether or not they should marry.

I’m pretty sure the “priest” in Dr.Coolface’s image was not a priest at all

A joke that was completely missed.

Pardon the bump, but I thought this was a hoot:

Supreme Court On Gay Marriage: ‘Sure, Who Cares’

WASHINGTON--Ten minutes into oral arguments over whether or not homosexuals should be allowed to marry one another, a visibly confounded Supreme Court stopped legal proceedings Tuesday and ruled that gay marriage was “perfectly fine” and that the court could “care less who marries whom.”

“Yeah, of course gay men and women can get married. Who gives a shit?” said Chief Justice John Roberts, who interrupted attorney Charles Cooper’s opening statement defending Proposition 8, which rescinded same-sex couples’ right to marry in California. “Why are we even seriously discussing this?”

By the way, Delaware just legalized it the other day, and Minnesota is voting on it soon.

@Rimshot Vito:

Well, everyone has a right to be offended, but certainly nobody should be surprised by ridicule. Everyone gets it.

@thread:

I thought somebody had posted a link to a map on this thread. Either I remembered wrong, or it was deleted, but since others might be interested, here are Wikipedia links to a U.S. map and a world map with current legal statuses.
