    @flawhatever - please stop calling it "marriage equality" because it's never been about that.

    What a wonderful idea. I will be praying that the judge make a stand for decency and does not cater to the gays. It seems like that is all that ever happens. It is time for decency to prevail, for a change.

    flanoggin has a right no one can deny him - the unretractable freedom to pray. So, don't.

    But my question (doubt) is whether he will actually pray, or is just making fun of the idea - which is also his liberty (though dangerous). And whether he prays that God's will be done on Earth. Actually, God's will is done on Earth. The question is whether we allow ourselves to be vessels for God's will to be done - a privilege.

    SSm has taught us a great religious lesson about civil marriage, is purifying our churches from so-called "modernism", and is making us think deep about what it means to be a Christian surrounded by not only materialism and relative morality, but also wishy-washy Christians still growing in the grace of God.

    We/i cannot point fingers, without the thumb pointing back to us/me. We cannot point to homosexuality as a sin, without pointing to ourselves regarding lying (and i don't mean laying down). These sins are listed side to side. How embarrassing! It really brings us down to 'equality', if you know what i mean. "Let those who have ears, listen."

    I pray every day for marriage equality, decency, love and kindness. I believe in, and practice the golden rule. If I fall short, shame on me. I do not wish those religions who loathe same sex marriage to rejoice for my same sex civil marriage. I am totally for religious freedom----and freedom from religion. As far as sin is concerned---he who is without sin cast the first stone....thank you

    Well, Flannogin : You are sincere and have spirituality. But many of us ALSO wish for freedom from religion, if i get your meaning. You see, we wish freedom from those who are religious in name only. It includes those people who use religion as a front, and practice it in as neutral way as possible, to be accepted for networking purposes. In Christianity, the merging of political power and Christian morality created social stability, but generated Christianity by convenience. After centuries of persecution, that sounded like a good thing, at the time.

    In regards to your same-sex civil marriage - there's no rules against friendship, and i rejoice with you in that. Friendship can be oftentimes better than marriage. I don't mean to be offensive, but that's my word for it.

    Some State calls it 'marriage', but it is not 'marriage' at the Federal level. Like i wrote, in my humble opinion, this issue is purifying the Christian churches, and so it has a benefit to society.

    We ''loath' same-sex marriage? if you mean by that civil marriage, some people do, but they don't necessarily loath you for it as a person, but just the concept. Some of us are loathed as 'bigots', so what's worse?

    Same-sex marriage legislation has to have a rational basis and follow legislative procedure, and therefore it is not an emotional matter. It is an "urgent" matter, because of the politics involved, and that can make it seem volatile. It really isn't. There's always some violent 'nut' in each bunch. But this issue has tremendous implications for our nation, for peace.
