"In this case," the head of Liberty Counsel says, "they could not get around the very clear 1913 law ... and, as a result of today's decision, there are many people now realizing that their so-called same-sex marriage license is just a worthless piece of paper."No Matt, you're wrong, W-R-O-N-G. You just don't get it and I feel bad for you if you think that's all that marriage is, a piece of paper. While you may think that that "paper" is worthless, it's far from that. You see, the people that got that "worthless piece of paper" were in love and committed long before they could obtain that paper. They didn't need the paper they just wanted their equal rights because last time I looked it said "All men are created equal" It didn't say all men except for the gays and lesbians.
I can recall many movies/TV shows growing up that would include some couple who got married. At some point in the show the couple would find out that the person who married them couldn't legally do it but it didn't matter because they were love and they knew they were married. (In the Catholic religion the priest is the witness and couple actually marries each other.)
All the hateful anti-gay groups in the country can petition every state, intimidate and pressure lawmakers to enact laws to discriminate and spent hours on end putting us gays and lesbians down. But in the end you will lose. We are not going away. We are still falling in love and opening our families to our significant others. Case in point:
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. --Christopher McCary and John Sullivan, among the first gay couples married in Massachusetts in 2004, still consider themselves married, even if a decision Thursday by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court means they're just two guys living in the same house.
"It really doesn't change anything," said McCary, an attorney in Anniston, where he lives with Sullivan in a quiet neighborhood. "We're like everybody else. He has two jobs, I have one and we both work all the time."
