Delaware to vote on becoming 11th state to allow gay marriage
Reuters ^ | 5/7/2013 | Edith Honan

Delaware lawmakers will take up a gay marriage bill on Tuesday in a bid to make the state the 11th to allow same-sex couples to wed.

The scheduled vote in the state's Democrat-controlled Senate follows the General Assembly's passage of the bill several weeks ago. Governor Jack Markell, an outspoken supporter of gay marriage, has vowed to sign the bill into law if it clears the Senate.

The vote follows a string of victories for advocates of same sex marriage. Last Friday, lawmakers in Rhode Island gave final approval to a marriage bill, which Gov. Lincoln Chafee quickly signed into law.

Last November, voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington state approved ballot measures legalizing gay marriage, marking the first time voters in any state extended marriage rights to same-sex couples in a popular referendum.

The sad part about this is that it's not really even news any more.

This country is due for a serious chastisement from God.

There will be so many people flooding into Delaware from Washington, D.C. for ‘wedding weekend specials’; the state will be at risk of tipping over.

Word. I am at 'ground zero' in Gay England, but I agree that it is past time for G-d to pull the plug.

Same sex marriage exists only in the minds of Homosexuals.

The rest of us merely laugh at their ignorance.

It will be interesting to see if any state holds out. Can you imagine the bullying from the lavendar mafia on the last few states who don’t buy into legalized sodomy? The real estate will soar in value and businesses will flock to that state, but the pressure to give in will be immense.

Have you not seen polling where the American people strongly favor "gay" "marriage" because the people have gay nephews, cousins, uncles, ex-in-laws etc., even if they don't admit they have "gay" children? People "think" they are "compassionate" in such regard.

I cannot see any of the Southern or Plains states giving sanction to sexual perversion anytime soon. The Northeast except maybe Pennsylvania is a lost cause; ditto for the West Coast. At least for now. By 2025 subversion may well do to many of these states what happened in formerly moderate to conservative states like CO and CA.

So Governor Jack Markell believes that men should be able to "marry" men. And women should be able to "marry" women. He and many others must have failed Biology 101.

Those who support same sex marriage are placing sexual perversion associated with a transient popular culture, above protecting the health and safety of the people. I guess that he and others of his ilk are not worried about who will pay for the added costs of treatment for psychological disorders, substance abuse problems, suicide, HIV/AIDs, associated with homosexual behavior.

Certainly normalizing sexual perversion will not reduce the current epidemic. What stupidity? After all ten other states have done the same! Not to worry, we have Obamacare!

Oh, I’m sure God will judge us all long before then. We are being tested and this is the test of our age - whether we approve of this or deny this before God.

Do you want to be on the side of God or on the side of this age?

So the state legislator of Delaware knows better than thousands of years of human experience, that one man and one woman is the basis for the family and they know better.

Tampering with this formula will result in untold damage for future generations.

We are very close to a bill in Minnesota for same sex marriage. After the defeat of the marriage amendment last fall, I would not be surprised to see the legislature pass this measure. Not at all. We have democrats in control of the governorship and both houses.

A vote on this is closer to the way laws should be made in a free country than a court decree. Still, no matter what the government pretends, I refuse to pretend that this legal fiction has anything to do with real marriage.

From the article:

“Last November, voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington state approved ballot measures legalizing gay marriage, marking the first time voters in any state extended marriage rights to same-sex couples in a popular referendum.”

Minnesota failed to pass their amendment last year. They are only afraid to bring it to the voters when they think they will lose. If the SC upholds prop.8 look for a popular vote to simply repeal it, it only passed by 52% in 2008.

I eventually left this state, because the job market was down the drain. I live in PA now, and frankly, now having a job, I really don’t regret it right now. There’s plenty of issues in Delaware’s economy and public health right now, that frankly, I am not waiting around to see fixed.

Great! Now the people of Deleware will be entertained by incessant headlines/TV coverage about gays, gay organizations suing bakeries and bed-and-breakfasts in set-up deals, parents outraged over explicit gay ‘sexual health’ lessons in schools, transgender rights, more headlines about transgenders being able to use women’s bathrooms, more headlines about gays and gay adoptions, and on and on and on and on.

Maybe they think legalizing gay marriage will end all this.

Not so.

The big gay organizations are so headline-hungry it’s pitiful.

But in areas where it is imposed, you will be forced to join in their fantasy if you are a businessman, government worker, or employer.

The other fantasy of pretending a man is a woman is never far behind anywhere that homo-"marriage" is concocted.
