    Was that a county or state law? The article wasn't specific.

      Another gay thread.

      I think this forum needs to be renamed the GayLounge.Net

            State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer said he will decide this week whether New York law allows gay marriage.

            Grote, I Think the mayor was charged with marrying without participants having a license. Nothing about gays, technically.

              I wonder what various news sources would say if a mayor by-passed a state law and allowed law abiding citizens to carry hand guns?

                Or, what if the mayor allowed people to rig their cars with a high voltage electrical charge, that would incapacitate a would-be car theif or a tag stealer?

                  If a mayor really wants to buck the system, why not repeal the stupid 21 year old drinking age, and make it 18? Afterall, if you entrust an 18-21 year old to carry a M-16 in defense of this country, why can't he have a cold beer?

                    Becuase a lot of 18 year olds are still in high school.
                    Are they mature enough to deal with the consequences?

                    Those years are pivotal in terms of the maturation process. Those people arent mature enough to deal with what goes along with drinking at that age.

                    You may say those kids drink anyway....and they do, but look at all the crimes that go on when alcohol is involved. Those stats would go up exponentially if that age was lowered.

                      We already know what they say when a Chief Justice purchases a statue of the 10 Commandments and places them in public view.

                      All of a sudden, the "Law is the Law".
                      And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

                          I think he is trying to say that you like the same sex that you are.
                          I get the feeling that he's not the only one.

                          Whatever. Hey, if that's what get you hard, feel free to let your imagination run wild.
