So, what I wondering, is if they moved to the United States, would this be a legal union in the USA? Can American homosexuals go up there to get married and then force our government to recongnise this union? Is that the new scheme?
... would this be a legal union in the USA?
I don't know anything about the law, but everything I have read before would indicate that it would not be recognized here unless a state had some sort of reciprocity law in place. (I was hoping a bunch of them would move to Canada because of this.)

Texas doesn't recognize same sex marriages period. In fact, our Governor Rick Perry just signed a new law a couple of weeks ago specifically spelling it out. We didn't NEED that law because it was already covered in the statutes. Some of the LIBS hated that too. I felt their pain - NOT !!!!

Not in Nebraska. We have an amendment in our state constitution that recognizes marraige only as a union between a man and a woman. This was a petition initiative that ended up on the ballot and passed at general election with over 70% of the vote. The usual cast of sodomites have been screaming about it ever since. It'll end up before the Nebraska Supreme Court (God, please help us) sometime within the next 2 years, I'm guessing.
