Congratulations to France!

And shame on anti-gay protestors who resorted to violence. VIolent attacks are NOT a good way to gain support for your point of view.

Reminds me of the threats of physical violence and the damaging of Mormon property with graffiti when the Mormon Church supported Prop 8.

@Chris B --

"Reminds me of the threats of physical violence and the damaging of Mormon property with graffiti when the Mormon Church supported Prop 8."

It reminds me of the fact that gay people in the US are EIGHT TIMES more likely to be the victims of violent crimes than straight people. That's from FBI crime data, not something just pulled randomly out of the air.

It also reminds me of the news stories from the last couple of days, in which Georgian (the country) PRIESTS led an angry mob against gay rights activists. One story reports that "Thousands of Orthodox anti-gay activists broke through police cordon and pursued gay rights protesters in Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, injuring at least 28 people in the process."

Violence should be condemned on ALL sides. But it's quite clear which side suffers from most of the violent attacks.

"pretending it is a marriage is still pretending it is a marriage. saying doesn't make it so."

And pretending it isn't doesn't make it not.

I think we're up to 14 countries now, and 12 states. Something like that, anyway. We're moving so fast now that I may have lost count.

I can't wait for the Supreme Court decisions next month. :-)
