Wedding bells: California Attorney General weds Proposition 8 plaintiffs on mayor’s balcony

Same-sex marriages are taking place in California for the first time since 2008, and “easy on the eyes” Attorney General Kamala Harris wasted no time in performing the nuptials for Proposition 8 plaintiffs Kristin Perry and Sandra Stier. Harris’ tweet announcing the wedding was retweeted more than 1,000 times in the first hour.

Other high-profile politicians were quick to get in on the event as well, present or not.

See, the government can get things done quickly when it wants to.

Expect similar if lower-profile scenes all weekend as San Francisco City Hall prepares for an influx of couples.

        Top five divorce rate states:

        1. Oklahoma
        2. Arkansas
        3. Alabama
        4. Mississippi
        5. Kentucky

        Notice anything those states have in common?

        • SpinMeNot

          And this has what to do with topic? Oh, yeah, I forgot, anything the liberal progressive puke is afraid to talk about he trots out a strawman to deflect.

          With the exception of Oklahoma, they are all full of Low Information, Government Dependent voters.

          • GrindingMills

            Is everyone that disagrees with you a low information voter?

          • SpinMeNot

            No, but I respond to strawman arguments with straw man arguments and contempt. As pointed out my Mr. Lewis above, using percentages is a way of hiding the facts. Statistics are at best a dicey game when it comes to single issues related to such things as divorce. For years, it was circulated that 50% of all marriages end in divorce, and the study that supported that argument said so. Forget the fact that information available else where contradicted the one study that was cited for year.

            A fair question, I appreciate you asking it.

          • Tom Lewis

            Your being too kind, most of those states are …. Southern and their population is pretty low.
            In fact the total number of divorced people for last year from those states was 5.8 % of the Total Population of Divorced individuals in the United States for 2012.

            Now if you add the following states
            1. California
            2. Texas
            3. Florida
            4. New York
            5. Ohio

            The Total number of divorced persons from these five states is 27.28 % of the Total number of divorced person in the United States for 2012. Which was 2,318,515 divorced persons.

            What do these five states have in common? They are big and with the exception of Texas are Democrat run States.

            Rates are impressive, but real numbers get to the facts.

          • SpinMeNot

            yes, fair points Mr. Lewis and in fact correct ones. I try to avoid concrete numbers with liberal/progressives. After all, we know that 7th grade math is hard for them.

            “they are all full of Low Information, Government Dependent voters” — AKA red states.

          • SpinMeNot

            Ah, I see you don’t understand how a representative democracy works. See, the cities in the states listed are full of urban areas with handout homes and high inner city unemployment. They elect people like Sheila Jackson Lee and Wendy Davis and John Wiley Price and … then there are the burbs and the rural areas with lots of people that work hard for a living and see that we folks like Rick Perry (not my favorite, but a hell of a lot better than Jerry Brown) and Ted Cruz and John Cornyn.

            And let me stop you … you are going to tell me that Texas has the county with the highest per capita welfare rate in the nation — and you are right, it does. It is King County, 236 folks in the last census, most of them welfare democrats.

            I see your public education is taking you to new highs of ignorance.

        • Joe W.

          Yes. They are states where people choose to marry more often than your liberal hell holes where y’all just shack up. Can’t get divorced when you don’t bother to get married, Cupcake.

            Texas

            North Carolina

            Michigan
            Pennsylvania

  • ThomasCollins1

    It’s June 30 and AIDS is in the air! Today is the great celebration of sodomy in san francisco, where, although they just passed a ban on public nudity, they exempted today.

    “A public nudity ban proposed by a city official has many in the Castro District of San Francisco outraged.”

    “A few lewd exhibitionists are really ruining it for the rest of us,” McCray Winpsett said.

    Gay pride is inseparable from genital liberation,” Catholic League
    President Bill Donohue said in an e-mail statement. “The law being
    considered would still allow these men to go naked at the annual gay
    pride parade, and at the Folsom Street Fair; the latter event is marked
    by naked homosexuals who whip each other in the street.”

    The city’s nudists have preemptively filed a federal lawsuit to block the measure, should it become law. Their lawyer, Christopher DiEdoard – who now goes by “Christina” – declared last week it was time “for us to return to real San Francisco values!”

    Lawmakers in San Francisco narrowly approved a proposal to ban public nudity on Tuesday. The Board of Supervisors rejected arguments that the measure would tarnish the city’s reputation for tolerance.But exemptions will be made for people who take part in street fairs and parades, including the city’s annual gay pride event.

    When Adam and Eve had partaken of the tree of wisdom, they heard God coming to them through the garden. Did they worry about having disobeyed God’s ONE commandment to them? No. The very first thing that occured to Adam, the very first “human” thought, was that he was naked.

    So, you, who are without sin or hypocrisy are going to tell me what I know and don’t know. I’m willing to bet I’ve got a lot more formal education than you do, more patents, more published, peer reviewed papers and a heck of lot more experience.

    Why does opposition to gay marriage have anything to do with divorce rates in states? Have I ever been divorced? Since you know so damn much, and I know so damn little, you tell me Smart Troll boy. When did I get married, how much of the first years of my marriage did my vocation keep me away from my wife? How long have I been married?

    And for the record, divorce rates and opposition to gay marriage are completely orthogonal issues. And therefore, trotting out divorce rates to divert the conversation is in fact a straw man argument that is a lame attempt to prove that those that are against gay marriage are also hypocrites because they live in a state that has a high divorce rate and that you assume them to be Christians because they live in the Southern US.
