Isn't it time we ENFORCE our laws on gay marriage?
gay marriage is illegal in most states, but I was shocked to hear that nothing is done about it. The only consequence is that the state will not give you a marriage license. But gay couples can still get married and everything. Isn't it time we have some jail or at least heavy fines for gay couples that get married in violation of the law?

Chelsie, you're a sad, pathetic excuse for a human-being, and you should be smote from the Earth in a rain of fire.

How can you get married if you can't get a marriage license?

2/1/2009 5:24:46 AM


This is why I could never support "State's Rights"

Because then a state full of fundis COULD do something like that.

Having a ceremony isn't the same thing as having legal rights as a married couple. The government sees most gay couples as housemates under the current rules.

We also don't have debtors prisons and workhouses for orphans in this country anymore. Where have you been, Chelsie?

You can have the most lavish wedding and invite half the world, but the state will not call you married until you have a marriage license signed by a judge.

If you don't have a marriage license, you're not married.

Or did your "husband" tell you differently?

Unfortunately, there's this thing called elections and court houses.

If you're not legally married you're not married.

If you mean cohabitation most of those laws are gone. The ones that remain would probably be struck down as unconstitutional if states tried enforcing them.

And what business is it of yours what consenting adults agree between themselves?

2/1/2009 6:59:06 AM


you know... even this deep-red ass-end of the universe that is North Dakota "decriminalized" cohabitation in 2007 (and a good thing too, I don't wanna go to jail). In this century, we don't imprison people for not legally marrying. Anybody is allowed to throw a gigantic commitment party.

There is no law AGAINST gay marriage as in "gay marriage is forbidden". you'll be surprised to know that unless the law stated so "marriage" per se wouldn't even mean shit to the public administration.

So it isn't like "gay marriage is illegal" it's more like "gay marriage isn't even contemplated and has no legal validity, the state does not and will not recognise it. Apart than that you can do whatever the fuck you want" as in they can get married in church, they can make believe they are married they can fuck, suck and fondle all day long, but their union will not be considered factual by the state. that's all there is.

And if there was any sense in all this (and there can't be any ince it's religion we are talking about) it would be the same for heterosexual marriages: marriage in church doesn't count, if you want to get married in front of the state you have to get married in a courthouse.

Isn't it time we have some jail or at least heavy fines for gay couples that get married in violation of the law?

Translation: Why can't we throw the faggots in jail and let them f*** each other to death?

If the state doesn't supply a marriage license then you're not married. The local witch doctor can dance about, yell magic words, and rattle his bones all he wants but in America it is the secular state that makes a marriage legitimate.

No marriage license = no marriage.

They can have a commitment ceremony though, but it others no rights, which is why they want to be able to get married!

Seriously, please do.

It is better to keep silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

2/1/2009 11:59:59 AM


Actually, couldn't representing oneself to be married without a marriage certificate count as fraud?

Don't get me wrong, I fully support legalising gay marriage, but as long as the state doesn't recognise it isn't that the way the law would view the matter?

I suppose not, come to think of it - since the state doesn't even recognise the possibility of gay marriage, could they prosecute you for fraudulently claiming to be something it's not legally possible to be, and thus nobody could be expected to be fooled by?

This, my dear, is called oppression. Or, to be more exact, tyranny of the majority. I highly doubt the US constitution and its amendments allow for it.

In the meanwhile, we'll put you in jail for being a fundy. Which is a lifestyle choice, unlike homosexuality.
