I'm surprised NAMBLA hasn't jumped on this bandwagon.

"I can't wait to submit my very own "original artist" state income tax forms - I mean, people in California can make up state forms, submit them and have them accepted, can't they?"

Woah - cool... you are way out there on the curve - Let's keep in touch - I would LOVE to participate with you on jabing the FTB up the wazoo with this one.

YeeeeHaaaa Let Anarchy Reign - If our elected officials won't act properly.

Folks, this is California. Don't be surprised if the court decides to invalidate all previous marriage licenses because they contain the "hateful, bigoted and homophobic" terms bride and groom. It could happen.

For lesbians they put "takes out the trash" and "submissive."

Which one leaves the toilet seat up?

wait this just in from sin Francisco...The city has found a way to grant a liscense for lesbians. They will grant them a Liqour liscense...

Does that mean the gays will be licensed by the city as Plumbing Inspectors?

First the semi-colon and now the wrong form. Who wants to make a bet that the wrong form will not matter but the semi-colon will matter.

Now if I was governor of California... I'd mobilize the State militia, declare martial law in San Francisco, and have the rebel government in San Francisco imprisoned pending a court tribunal for malfeasance, fraud, and treason, and whatever else appears to apply here. Good thing I'm not the gubbernor of California.

Oh my goodness, maybe these people ought to sue the mayor. They don't seem to be married after all, what if one of them got pregnant? ;o)

Aside from the legal and moral aspects of this, a complete disservice has been done to gay couples here. In fact, I would go so far as to call what the Mayor of SF has done to these people completely cruel.

I'm not sure what the civil penalties are for not upholding city and state law, but the mayor should be vulnerable and prosecutable.

I believe we are witnessing something that may be more dangerous to our society than homosexual marriage. When a societies leaders become willing to pick and choose which laws they will and will not honor, what does that say to the rank and file state residents?

Has our society come to the place where civil law is no longer valid, supportable or worthy of adherance? Not just kids are watching this, adults are finding out that civil law is hardly worth the paper it's written on these days unless it fits in with their world view.

That's a shame. We'll all pay for this, and on much more than just the aspects that touch on the homosexual question at hand.

That is true, but if corporations and local and state entities honor them, that point will be academic.

I believe your comments have merit, but it's my opinion that if nobody else honors these marriage certificates, the city will. In my opinion liberal bastions across this nation will network to support these unions. In the absense of a moral stand against these unions, I truly expect an outcome that legitimizes homosexual marriage and facilitates the severe effects that will have on this nation, our youth and society.

The legality of the form is a minor issue.

Sodomy marriage is still illegal, whatever form they use.

Well, at least this bureaucrat is on the right side of the matter, refusing to accept the licenses as valid. Much better than the judge who refused to accept a suit against the gay marriage licenses because he objected to a semicolon.

Perhaps the good judge would like a full colon and an ennema to accompany it....?

Good point. It seems that the liberals manage to take all the humanity out of things.

Are you saying that even if they consummated the marital union, they are still not "legally married"? And how do lesbians consummate the "marraige" by having intercourse?

Oral sex is not sex and therefore I can assume that intercourse is now not intercourse. Look it up in the dictionary. I can see a rewrite in the near future.

Geesh, how can I even approach the birds and the bees with my kids? These alternative lifestyle, politically correct times are difficult to navigate.

You know it's kind of funny - I still have memories reading the original cartoon strip when it was published with Pogo saying that line.

For men they replaced it with "pitcher" and "catcher."

Another pair of terms they could use for the men would be "impaler" and "impalee".
