    It's breathtaking how quickly this issue has turned. On election day, 2004, 11 states, including Michigan, a bluish purple state, passed state constitutional amendments to ban gay marriage.

    I'm on record in this forum a few years back saying that by 2020 we'll be seeing same sex marriages in downtown Birmingham and Hatteisburg.

    Looks like I was off by 5 years.

    Good thing that we have Republicans to appoint conservative judges.

    Vote Republican get the same thing you'd get if you voted Democrat.

    I wonder if the Supreme Court is going to recognize any other marriages that used to be considered immoral and therefore do not receive the respect they deserve.

    I'd say probably not anytime soon seeing as only gays seem to entitled to special treatment.

    It's amazing to me how much court time, money, and political maneuvering is spent on the issue of allowing 2 lesbians to get married. If our beloved lawmakers spent as much time trying to fix our crumbling infrastructure, and paying down our national debt, we might all be better off.😞

    The ruling was not unexpected (opponents had failed to present a single rational reason to deny gays equality in marriage), but it's a proud day for the US nonetheless. Lockean Natural Rights theory has won the day.

    Given the way Alabama's Supreme Court has been so obstructionist even when directly overruled by federal courts, I wonder whether you'll really be 5 years off.

    I found the thread.

    I actually said "within a decade" (not "the" decade) from 2013. So I was actually off by a little more than 5 years...

    If homosexuality isn't immoral, then why should either polygamy or incest be immoral?
