The 10th Circuit has denied the request to stay the decision by a US District court to overturn the gay marriage ban in Kansas. So on Wednesday in Kansas, unless the Supreme Court of the US steps in, you can get a same-sex marriage.

A Missouri gay meets a Kansas gay and they get engaged. Where do they marry? :D

Sounds like where ever they want. Pretty soon at least.

Call me a bigot, but I cannot support bi-state marriage. A person should stay within their own state population to marry, just as God intended.

I can't support people marrying outside their immediate families. Next thing you know, folks will be marrying unicorns!

You might have read beyond "call me a bigot, but I cannot support" there.

Actually, I missed the bi-state part - kinda changes the context a bit much.

Thanks for checking in with the American Taliban perspective there, timewarp!

Enjoy the death throws of your cultural dinosaur-hood.

Also, SPOILER ALERT:

God didn't invent marriage. And while I'm raining on your fantasy parade/charade, Mikey, Santa Claus is a FUCKING LIE!

I know we are in the midwest, but sheesh, i thought harbinger was trolling.
People still exist that thing this way? Me and my boyfriend have had no problems in the city, but i'm actually concerned about going outside the city together.

You really think someone like Harbinger has the stones to actually confront someone in person? I wouldn't worry about it. Coward trolls are the most common thing on the internet these days.

The culture wars are everywhere in US, including San Fran and NYC. With more and more people becoming non/less religious or less bible literal, some who are are getting louder and are the ones politicizing religion. They are called dominionists and theocrats - the GOP should just rename themselves as such. Fortunately they are not the future. They are louder but the obnoxious in your face evangelicals are shrinking with each generation, which just gets them more riled up.

Marriage is just a word and many define it in different ways. Mainly it is a contract and our society has defined that contract as being between only two people, of different sexes, and a person can only be in one type of this contract at a time. Above it is mentioned instead of allowing gay marriage just have civil unions. Well, that was tried a few years ago and probably many in the gay community would have settled for that. However a large number of people were against the thought of civil unions. So why not go for it all.

Just a big ol' load of crap. If this were to be followed, blacks and whites couldn't get married. You and Harbinger seem to think this "separate but equal" thing can really work. Ever read a history book?

Moreover - YOUR RELIGION may have defined marriage that way, but "society" hasn't done shit.

You misunderstood the post. Thought my first sentence would give away my stance. Then the final sentence.

Well traditionalists get caught up in a certain culture in a certain era and fight to keep it static. Humanity has been around eons longer than concept of marriage. Marriage is a human invention and human inventions evolve over time. They may evolve based on majority view and right now the majority view on this subject in the US has changed in just a decade. That freaks out the traditionalists (and dogma literalists in this case) and so they are trying to politicize the definition.

IMO, marriage is a personal contract that shouldn't be recognized by govt to begin with, and certainly not defined by govt.
