California Senate OKs 'Gay' Marriage
worldnetdaily.com ^ | September 8, 2007 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 09/09/2007 2:24:37 PM PDT by kellynla

The California Senate has approved a plan to replace "man and woman" in state references to marriage with "two persons," establishing a same-sex marriage procedure in the state that just seven years ago voted to limit marriage to one man and one woman.

The 22-15 vote came on homosexual Assemblyman Mark Leno's proposal to open marriage to any pair in the state, not just those couples made up of a man and a woman. All Republicans opposed AB43, while all but three Democratic senators supported it.

The bill now goes to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for his signature or veto. He has given ambiguous signals about his support for the latest proposal, but earlier vetoed a similar proposal.

However, in Schwarzenegger's answers to questions from the state Supreme Court he suggested the "use of the words 'marry' and 'marriage' is not required by the California Constitution. Thus, the name of the legal relationship now known as 'marriage' could be changed."

As WND has reported, Schwarzenegger has expressed the opinion that legally, the term "marriage" can be terminated, because registered "domestic partners" already have all of the same legal rights, benefits, duties and obligations as married couples.

The governor continued, "Except for the ability to choose and declare one's life partner in a reciprocal commitment of mutual support, any of the statutory rights and obligations that are afforded to married couples in California could be abrogated or eliminated by the Legislature or the electorate for any rational legislative purpose."

That court solicited comments from Schwarzenegger because it is considering a case that challenges the state's 2000 Proposition 22 vote in which voters expressed the desire to limit marriage to a man and a woman.

The answers contained in Attorney General Jerry Brown's brief were nearly a duplicate of Schwarzenegger's.

May as well, virtually every other definition in the dictionary has been dumped in Websters via political agenda.

They still have a long way to go.

The legislature passed the bill as they have done before, however the Governor has promised to veto it, as he has done before. Moreover even if the Governor were to sign the bill a) it wouldn’t take effect until January 1st 2008 and b) the committee that was created by the late Senator Pete Knight to enact Proposition 22 will go to court immediately to stop this, where the bill will be held up for months if not years. c) several citizens committees will also launch a referendum to undo the legislative action thereby suspending the bill until the outcome of that referendum is settled.

Although we will never procreate, our love for each other should be worth a satisfying status by government and worthy of some "bones" tossed our way via deductions.

And who gets to define "adult"? Watch for the legislature to change that around too. Or hey, let a father marry his own child. That adds up to two people. For that matter, why limit it to two people. Nature proves that a person can love more than one person at a time.

Brother may marry sister, or father can marry daughter.

What the heck, a number of these sons must have been marrying their own mothers.

I'm the Safe Environment Coordinator for our Parish and attended a meeting last week regarding the Federal and State background check of all people working with children.

We are now going with an outfit called, Sagem Morpho, Inc the head of the meeting was shocked when we asked him about item #13.

No lie, this was the question

Gender (select one)

Male, Female, Both

The adult would still stand as I think it would be highly unlikely that the legal system would change to the point of allowing minors to enter into contracts.

It was highly unlikely that the legal system would change to allow homosexual marriage only a few years back. It’s all up for grabs when you hold the premise that gov’t has no higher authority (nature and nature’s God) to consult. What is age-of-consent or the line between minor and adult but moral judgments? The premise that brought the homosexuals this far is that gov’t has no right to make moral judgments. Without that premise they would be nowhere. Their act that is their claim to fame is clearly against the nature order of human sexuality. It plays no role in the building block of the family and the natural creation of future generations of human beings. It is a means of orgasm of no greater value than masturbation.

Since a corporation is a legal entity that approximates personhood, can a real person marry a corporation?

I would like to marry Wal-mart and then get divorced. The settlement should be awesome.

The director of the safe environment did not have a clue on just what it meant. I am guessing they were being PC for those who are in the process of changing their sexual identity.

I know that our diocese is very strict about who comes in contact with children. It is really difficult to make the volunteers jump through so many hoops because of the actions of a few, but it can't be helped now.

You're right. Limiting marriage to two is discrimination against polyamorous bisexual people! How insensitive!
