    Same-Sex Marriage Law Signed in Washington State

    That's seven states, now (plus the District of Columbia).

    It's OK with me. I believe they have rights just like any other citizen.

    BUT, don't be carrying on in front of me, my wife, my daughter or grand daughter.

    And, cue Santorum predicting the state will slide into the ocean.

    Pickel: are you against all public displays of affection? Are gay people allowed to hold hands? Quick cheek smooch? Or are you talking more along the lines of heavy groping and make-outs? And would these standards be identical for "straight" couples?

    I guess a ballot initiative is out of the question now since it will be a right to marry and many will. In California that is how Prop 8 was over turned. Can't take rights away that were already a right without reason.

    My girlfriend and I while shopping will hold hands and even if the mood strikes us, kiss in the shopping isle. Just a little kiss, closed mouth. We try to kiss when the isle is empty if just foollen' around. I'm sure we've been seen although intending not to be seen. I think you know what I'm talking about.

    If you saw us give a quick kiss while you were shopping would you care?

    It wasn't my decision. It's just how it turned out for me. I like women. And since it is Valentines Day I had better say that in the singular.

    Here's something that may get a response. What if a homosexual said he got Viagra for a little something extra this Valentines Day for him and his partner or husband? I can say this and would get funny little comments back but what comments would come in for a homosexual man?

    Got an answer? You're falling behind in the questions.

    Equal rights for all. Nobody ever said same-sex marriages would be better than the standard sort.

    By the way: The New Jersey legislature is about to pass a same-sex marriage bill, but Chris Christie has said he'll veto it.

    Chris Christie believes majority rule on civil rights issues? I can't wait to hear his statement of his objections. Rational basis test? It'll be an epic fail of reasoning of course just like it will be in Washington when pressure from religious groups takes same-sex marriage to court and fails. The California courts have given this test exposure although unlike in California where the original Constitution gave explicit rights to marry to all citizens of California. New Jersey’s Constitution doesn’t offer this right merely equal rights under the law as with the Federal Constitution.

    Should be interesting to see if 2/3’s of both houses over-ride Christie when he veto’s.
