"We ended up together because our partners were having an affair with each other," Lambert told the Village Voice. "So we went out to laugh about it and have a drink and commiserate. And we found out it was the most wonderful thing that they cheated with each other, because we were so better suited to each other. It was a God kind of thing.

More like a Satanic kind of thing. God help us all!

So, these old ladies husbands were having a homosexual affair together and so the girls got together and repeated the same act?

No originality. Took a long time for nature to take its course, eh?;)

I know that the State can establish marriages, but it seems under the eyes of any Christian church that holds to its received faith, this marriage is invalid automatically. What does one do?

A whole new thing now, right?

A lot of older people I know who are together don’t get married because the legalities make a mess for everyone. They don’t want to give the kids inheritance problems, lose their insurances, social securities, pensions, etc.

I’m not saying it’s right but it’s the world.

They didn’t say “husbands”, they said “partners”.

I don’t think this is the first time for them.

But since they are grandmothers, I think people are thinking they used to be married to men.

There’s anecdotal evidence that many “lesbians” with children had those children the old fashioned way, before they decided that they were really lesbian. So it wouldn’t be a stretch to think these 2 had husbands at some point.

what? they were both married to men previously?

talking about on the rebound....

why do homosexuals have to have the attention
on themselves all the time? I would have just gotten married
in a quiet way, no media.

How come I have to celebrate my gayness? when
do people celebrate their heterosexuality?

“We ended up together because our partners were having an affair with each other,”

It’s not like they abandoned healthy relationships to hook up with each other.

I bet family Christmas dinners are a real hoot.

Two middle-aged woman pretending they’re ‘married’ while everyone goes along with the farce is pathetic. The left knows full well that two guys smooching each other is repulsive to most sane humans so they put middle age females out front to soften the image of ‘same-sex marriage’ The never-ending effort by homosexual advocacy groups to normalize sexual perversion that was once recognized by mental health professionals as (and continues to be, recognized or not) a form of mental illness is gaining ground and nothing good will come of it. STDs are already climbing at a rapid rate within the homosexual ‘population’. Homosexual men account for nearly half of the more than one million people living with HIV in the U.S. (48%, or an estimated 532,000 persons). State legislatures sanctioning ‘same-sex marriage’ are bowing to special-interest group pressure and a misguided sense of ‘fairness’ and a desire for ‘equality’ demanded by ‘gay’ groups. Marrying ‘gay’ grandmas aside, this will not end well.

True, but since they specifically said “partners”, it sounds to me like they’ve been divorced for a while and have been living an “alternative lifestyle”.

I recall a joke I heard one time - the definition of gross - when you are kissing your grandmother and she slips you the tongue.

However, this story gives a more appropriate definition, and still involves grandmothers!

Rom 1:18 ¶ For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

when you remarry, you forfeit your benefit as a woman. esp if you take 1/2 of what your husband gets. which means both these women get 0 benefits from SS

We formerly had a culture in which marriage was very important and to live together was disgraceful and looked down upon. THEN the “edgy” people got all bent out of shape about the mainstream culture being old-fashioned and uptight and marriage was declared to be “just a piece of paper” after all. THEN getting married became oh so very important and the most meaningful thing that people can do. It can get confusing.

It seems to me that what really matters to these people on the left is just to go against whatever is considered acceptable so that they can capitalize on it and get a lot of attention. If we had said, “Yeah, marriage means little nowadays, so go for it” they probably would have just dropped it as too banal and not causing enough trouble. They will never ever stop pushing the boundaries. They will just move on to the next demand.

Wrong is wrong, immoral is immoral, abnormal is abnormal, and sex perversion is sex perversion.

There is objective truth, and there are immutable facts. Sex perverts marrying each is abnormal, immoral, and wrong. No amount of leftist legislation or judicial activism aimed at destroying America can change the truth or the facts.

Period, end of story.

Not in America circa 2011. What was once considered abnormal and sick is now normal and good and defended by the laws of the land(written and rubber stamped by liberals and weak-kneed Republicans in the Congress and the courts).

Those of us who don't agree are painted as haters, bigots, and dangerous extremists by the left(the media, college professors, the entertainment industry, etc.).

Pontius Pilate while interviewing Jesus, snorted, "What is truth?" The serpent in the garden asked Eve, "Did God say?" What we are seeing today is the steady erosion of truth and the aftermath of that is just beginning to surface in society.

People have sex drives so a man and woman can strive to create a life long loving bond and produce children.

These women are most happy here not because they get to be married, but that the perverse behavior they have chosen to engage in is being normalized. They know they are getting away with something.

"This is pretty cool," Australian visitor Andrew Holder told Reuters following the wedding. "You come to see the falls, you see history."

That's because they are one and the same:

Isa 21:9 And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.

Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Babylon is history.

Since so many lesbian couples seem to have a male looking one and a female looking one, (as in the picture) doesnt it seem that even they are admitting in some way that the norm is male/female? I imagine they do not get the irony.
