I too look forward to basking in the glow of hells flame.
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.
In CT our DCF (Dept of Child and Family) always allowed gay couples to adopt and foster kids, even before the civil union laws passed. Most towns allowed gays couples with kids to take advantage of family discounts at public pools etc. Most of the state saw a family. That was the main reason why the state passed the law, they wanted to put it in writting and protect the families. We saw a few anti gay groups come into the state (they came from states like Kansas etc) and tried to dictate what we should be doing. So we passed the law and saw all these groups leave. Good Bye!
