Your thoughts

Len Deo: "I was in the courtroom when Judge Linda Feinberg said basically every gay and lesbian person in New Jersey does have the right to marry a person of the opposite sex."

So does Mr. Deo have a daughter he'd like to marry off to some gay guy? Is that what he's really proposing here? Think of it, imagine all the fat chicks who will finally have the man of their dreams. Oh, there won't be much sex involved, but their houses will be nicely decorated, and their wardrobe will rival those of the skinny girls.

Or, let's take this a different direction: could I have all the gay couples line up so we can match you up with another lesbian couple? We'll create 2 bearded marriages, and all 4 individuals can then enjoy the rights and benefits afforded to married couples....oh, except for the fact that they can't actually take care of the person that they love.

WTF? Why is it that organizations such as NOM, or FOF are clearly operating under the pretense that Civil Unions and Domestic partnerships are good enough for us, now, when they have historically opposed them; and if they remain the rule of law, they would continue to oppose them?! Far too few people are really being sold the unequivocal facts that CUs and DPs are, in fact, a Second Class status, and that CUs (which have been proven not to work, despite opposition groups which claim that we should invest the time to make them work!*) are not only a separate-but-equal status, but that they are SEPARATE-BUT-(UN)EQUAL!

And, I find it offensive that any judge would dare say that we have equal marriage rights to marry someone of the opposite sex!

* Actually, many companies are employing a Fed. statute that allows them not to recognize CUs and DPs as being almost-equal to marriage within states that recognize CUs.
