    Thumbs down Louisiana trying to stop gays from adopting

    Gay marriage is having a pretty damn good week. On Wednesday, DC voted to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Maine's governor followed up by signing gay marriage into law. And then! New Hampshire lawmakers passed a gay marriage bill which now goes to the governor, leaving us all staring, longingly, at little old Rhode Island.

    But as the big gay storm sweeps across New England, conservatives in other states are scrambling to bar the doors against gay rights. For instance: "The Louisiana legislature is moving forward with legislation that would bar the state from issuing birth certificates showing two people of the same sex as parents."

    The move stems from a federal lawsuit in which a gay couple, who adopted a child in a New York court, tried to add their names to their child's birth certificate for health insurance purposes. When Louisiana refused to do so, saying they didn't recognize gay adoptions, the couple filed suit and won. (The state is appealing.)

    The unfolding gay rights showdown is one of the most fascinating stories going on right now, so it will be interesting what happens when the bill goes up for a vote in the Louisiana House. Governor Bobby Jindal supports the bill. (Of course he does.) Because nothing says family values like denying kids health insurance and -- what's that other thing? -- their parents.

    Meanwhile, as Obama stays eerily silent on the gay marriage debate, opponents like the ever-understated Marion Barry are kicking up dustclouds of outrage, warning of a "civil war." Rhode Island, your move.

    those fundies are every fucking where. they are just more vocal in the south because we're notorious for not hiding the crazy. drive down any little backroads town and you'll see all the crazy sitting out there on the front porch in a rocking chair... petting an invisible cat and wearing invisible clothes....

    of course there are fundies everywhere. but it just seems like in the northeast they are outnumbered by a relatively sane and liberal majority, and people seem less attached to 'traditional values'.

    nyc is liberal, the rest of the state- not so much

    Damn it just pisses me off thinking of the thousands of kids in foster care of orphanages that nobody wants but hey let's leave them there instead of letting a gay couple adopt them.

    Shit..... I bet if the time comes my southern ass can survive in the woods, kill my own food, and live off the land.

    Many northern people wouldn't even know how to bait a hook.

    Just don't swallow that shit. I swallowed some Red Man one time and got drunk, then the sickness set in.
    Grimm would fail at it too, I see.
