Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.
Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.
Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?
I actually think the catholics are pretty ok with it. IIRC it's some of the protestant denominations that are going to be really angry.I'm super glad this is happening! but at the same time I'm worried because:
a) allll the catholic churches are gonna go "LET'S TALK ABOUT WHY THIS IS WRONG" in their homilies (if they haven't already) and the poor lgbtqia kids are gonna have to sit through that
...to which I think "wait, wasn't the legal basis of the ruling that since it's legal in some states it must be legal in all states?" which, by extension, would prohibit this?and c) a bunch of states - fuck you, alabama - either have or are going to ban marriage licenses for EVERYBODY so they can get around it. Which isn't fair to ANYONE.
i missed church today but according to my sis there was some...interesting stuff said in the homily (i was raised catholic, so there's my basis). My dad blatantly told he almost got up and left oh my god.I actually think the catholics are pretty ok with it. IIRC it's some of the protestant denominations that are going to be really angry.
I don't think it's that at all! It's more of a reminder for allies that yeah, it's a victory, but same-sex marriage is not the be-all end-all of lgbt rights! A lot of folks on tumblr, i've noticed, are worried that it's gonna be seen as "homophobia is over" when it's really, really not.Although something I've been seeing mostly on facebook is people saying "OK, we got same-sex marriage. Now there are like 30 more issues," and while I understand it makes me kind of sad that they're not willing to celebrate the victory at least for a little while.
Well if that isn't the most immature way to handle it I've heard ofand c) a bunch of states - fuck you, alabama - either have or are going to ban marriage licenses for EVERYBODY so they can get around it. Which isn't fair to ANYONE.
