    Sounds like a step in the right direction.

    Outstanding.  :thumbup1  If more states had done this years ago, we could have avoided the whole debate over 'gay marriage.'

        Exactly.   if the .gov isn't involved in marriage at all and it's left strictly up to the churches....... :coffee  I wouldn't be the current "radical" I am now.     And likewise I'd say a good 90% of the opponents of gay marriage would quietly start ignoring the issue (Albeit I'm sure many still would be vocal PITA).

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    True, but just like criminals with guns:   They'd be around doing crap like that anyway.    If we banned homosexuals and their thoughts, they'd still be out protesting in front of some bar saying that the in-house microbrew called "One eyed wiggler" was a gay reference or something.

    Ummm... most gays I know would find a beer named "One Eyed Wiggler" hysterical and buy it whether or not it was a gay reference...  :rotfl

    One of my wife's besties is a queen butch lesbian and would be first in line to buy one of those beers. She's hilarious and is always on about something. She would make a great standup comedian

    That's how I read it.

    I join the rest of you in applauding Alabama's move. I hope other states will follow suit.

    False. Grant made no grammatical errors, he merely tested our reading comprehension skills and out witted us all in the process.

    Pedantic hat: Actually, he used the same general pronoun ( "they" and its possessive "their") in a row to reference two different groups. Any editor would ring him up for that. /pedantic hat

    ETA: Just like I would have been rung up for using the wrong "its", before editing it... :hide

    Well, you know... gotta be honest...   ::)

    Though to be even more honest, I should have said "any editor worth their pay," because Lord knows I've seen writing on the 'net (and in the papers, but particularly on news websites) get worse and worse over the years.  I've seen articles where I've had to read it three times to figure out what they fluff they were attempting to say.
