I also had a post deleted in which I countered a position you took in yours. And at least one other post that I'm aware of was deleted as well.

It's not being "discriminatory against Christianity" but rather is adhering to the rules of this message board, which is to not participate in religious or political debates. Your post would have sparked a lively one, for sure.

I see that my original comment has been deleted. I don't think I was "turning this into a religious or political debate", others have certainly responded from their worldly viewpoint, which was fair enough I would rather you not allowed the thread to begin with rather than to be so discriminatory against Christianity. But since that seems to be the case, I will also be deleting my SP account and spreading the word. Thank you for the past help, up until today I thought this to be a great website, with great people working in it.

Same-sex marriage has been legally recognized nationwide in Canada since 2005 (and in certain individual provinces prior to that)... I am very pleased to see this development south-of-the-border....

Pretty shocking to read the link in the original post, in *2004* (not very long ago!!!!!) only 30% supported...? Thank goodness times are a-changing.

Please refrain from turning this into a religious or political debate, or I will have to delete the thread.

As it should be. How can anyone be against love which only brings joy and kindness to this world.

Yes, a good day and a big step forward for our country.

I always wondered why some people who cling so tightly to the "land of the free and the home of the brave" ... are so afraid of gay people and want to deny them the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

I'm SO happy about this today. I've even ignored the hateful comments by my more religious folks on my Facebook page, rather than getting involved in it. This is a big win. We still have a long way to go to have complete equality, but this is the right step in the right direction.

Just the other day a friend and I were commenting on how many historical events have taken place during our personal lifetimes. We were in a museum and many things in the showcases happened during our lives. LOL I have to say that, by far, this is the one that really brings a smile to my face. So many of my friends can now have legal marriages.

Hopefully this will encourage more states to get on board.

Yay! Also, for fun, if you go to and google the word "gay", a fun little surprise pops up :)
