Isn't that discriminatory? I thought labour unions had to comply with gender-discrimination laws like the rest of us....

Don't forget Connecticut! We are the only state in the nation to step up and recognize same sex unions and pass laws without a lawsuit. All other state laws came as a result of a law suit but we stepped up to the plate. We do have a law suit pending for same sex marriages but we have already passed the union laws.

I too look forward to basking in the glow of hells flame. :love:

I'm already planning an icewater concession stand. Maybe I'll sell iced tea, too. :grin:

I'm bidding on the portable reversable A/Cs (reversable in case we end up in a Nordic version of Hell).

Looks like I'm going to be right there in Hell with you. We call same-sex unions "Civil Unions", though what the difference is between that & marriage I don't know, apart from Church involvement.

Civil Unions are available to heterosexuals too, and have been used by them, though non-church weddings have been available for them for decades, if not centuries.

Hell, BTW, is the name of a chain of pizza franchises.

I'm half way to Hell.....my profile location is Purgatory Chasm!
Pizza? How's the sausage 'n 'shroom pizza from Hell?
Hmm...I once flew in a Chicago-style deep dish spinach pizza from the Midwest to the East Coast. I wonder if I can fly one in from Hell?

Had I read this on the day it posted I would have requested Wagner's Magic Fire from the Ring Cycle! (insert sound of 2 fingers snapping)

I guess the next debate I see here would be whether to allow same sex marriages to adopt.

It's o.k., but nothing wonderful at my local franchise. I was put off, too, by the man in dreadlocks mixing the ingredients without a hairnet or hat. That's not supposed to happen.

So that's why they call it 'Hell'! :wink:
