I all ready informed Rich of this, but the Westboro Baptist Church came to my state, Rhode Island, in early June to protest at multiple points around the capital of Providence. There was a huge online organization of students from multiple schools, and the turn out was amazing. It was essentially 100 people against four grumpy homophobes. Their signs were hilarious, btw. We actually ended up making them leave one of their posts an hour and a half early.

Impressive work there. And only by protesting? Well, people say it never works, but I suppose that has been proven wrong.


I wish Obama was gay. That'd throw everyone for a loop xD America would be in an up roar with riots everywhere! It'd be awesome! World war III would begin because terrorists would attack America in it's confused and weakened state. America would bomb them back and then other countries would get involved, then BAM! World War III! All because of a gay black president.

Interesting idea, a homosexual african-american president. Republican's worst nightmare, no?




And Rich, I would like to be allowed to speak here. Is that allowed although I'm straight?

I know many homosexual people... Including my aunt whom I frequently see, so things concerning laws and such also effect me... sort of. The idiotic conservative views on homosexuality never cease to amaze me...

Haha, of course you are, we have a "Straight" section of our members list.

I know how the conservative views go. Most of my family is really conservative, then I live within the Bible Belt, right in the middle of Republican country.

Just gotta wait until you can move out and be financially independent, then tell them. If they do reject you for it, that's their problem, not yours.

Owch. My extremely left wing uncle is considering marrying a conservative from Alberta. (Canada)

Not sure how they're going to raise their two children, but my uncle already has to suffer through visiting her parents in Alberta every once and a while... But love conquors all?

Whatever.

So...

Any news on whatever?

I live in Canada, so I don't know much about American laws... is Obama doing anything to help equal rights? I'm a very political/opinionated person, so I make it a point to know stuff about major countries that I don't live in.

I know he recently extended certain rights and benefits to same sex couples working for the Federal government.

At least as much as he's allowed under DOMA.

And there's a pretty big movement right now to get both the President and Congress to repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in the military.

DOMA... Clinton's lowest imo.


The Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, is the short title of a federal law of the United States passed on September 21, 1996 as Public Law No. 104-199, 110 Stat. 2419. Its provisions are codified at 1 U.S.C.§ 7 and 28 U.S.C. § 1738C The law has two effects:
  1. No state (or other political subdivision within the United States) needs to treat a relationship between persons of the same sex as a marriage, even if the relationship is considered a marriage in another state.
  2. The federal government defines marriage as a legal union exclusively between one man and one woman.
The bill was passed by Congress by a vote of 85-14 in the Senate and a vote of 342-67 in the House of Representatives, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on September 21, 1996.
At the time of passage, it was expected that Hawaii (and possibly other states) would soon legalize same-sex marriage, whether by legislation or judicial interpretation of either the state or federal constitution. Opponents of such recognition feared (and many proponents hoped) that the other states would then be required to recognize such marriages under the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the United States Constitution.
Three states (Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Iowa) currently allow same-sex marriage (with Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire having passed not-yet-implemented legislation to join that list), five states recognize some alternative form of same-sex union, twelve states ban any recognition of any form of same-sex unions including civil union, twenty-eight states have adopted amendments to their state constitution prohibiting same-sex marriage, and another twenty states have enacted statutory DOMAs.


Doma also stands for 3,4-Dihydroxymandelic acid you know.

Horrible law, and acid.

Coincidence?

DOMA is both discriminatory and unconstitutional.

Article Four of the US Constitution stats "Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof."

I fail to see how DOMA is a "manner of regulation."

I think i'm getting over my feelings for my best friend. Which is nice, since they certainly weren't doing me any good now...
