RE: Alabama gay marriage ban....unconstitutional
I thought this was pretty interesting:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of...ted_States

I'm impressed with how much has happened in just the past two years.

Also, "1967 – The Supreme Court overturns laws prohibiting interracial couples from marrying"
Damn, that wasn't very long ago.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

1965 – The Supreme Court overturns laws prohibiting married couples from using contraception (Griswold v. Connecticut).
1967 – The Supreme Court overturns laws prohibiting interracial couples from marrying (Loving v. Virginia).[4]
1969 – The first no-fault divorce law is adopted in California.[4]
1971 – The Supreme Court upholds an Alabama law which automatically changes a woman's legal surname to that of her husband upon marriage.[citation needed]
1971 – The Supreme Court refuses to hear challenge to a Minnesota Supreme Court ruling allowing prohibition of same-sex marriage (Baker v. Nelson).
1972 – The Supreme Court overturns laws prohibiting unmarried couples from purchasing contraception (Eisenstadt v. Baird).
1973 – Maryland becomes the first state in the U.S. to define marriage as "between a man and a woman" in statute.
1975 – Married women allowed to have credit in their own name.

All within my lifetime - good grief - the times they are a-changin'.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Next up - Nurse is escorted to the Alabama state line and asked to never return.
