Is this really what we’ve come to? Oh yeah, we’ve actually been heading there for a while and the people of Washington just voted themselves there.
The Washington state Health Department will be changing marriage and divorce certificates in response to the same-sex marriage law that takes effect Dec. 6.
Words such as “bride,” “groom,” “husband” and “wife” will likely be gone. The department wants to use gender-neutral terms.
Spokesman Tim Church told KIRO-FM ( http://is.gd/qO94io) they could be replaced with something like “Spouse A” and “Spouse B.”
The forms will still include gender so the state can track the number of same-sex couples in the state.
The department is asking the public for suggestions. A public hearing on wording marriage certificates will be held Wednesday in Tumwater.
This tells you everything you need to know about us when we think we can vote away reality and then offer suggestions on what to call our distortion. Think about it. Until recently everyone knew that when you got pregnant, you got pregnant with a baby. But that wasn’t good enough for us. In our utopia, we’ve now relabeled babies as a “product of conception” or a “blob of tissue.”
Remember those old maternity shirts that had the word “baby” with an arrow towards the womb. I don’t see those anymore. Perhaps they should make new ones with “blob of tissue.”
Methinks that the newly renamed institution of marriage will find itself where many babies find themselves nowadays – disposable and trashed.

It's pathetic how some people whine when things don't go their way.

They'll never get what they most desire – our approval.

Ah yes. The approval of some dumb fuck catholic. Just what I've always pined for!

Massachusetts did this years ago.

What Washington has done is 1. cease to recognise the natural, objective, pre-existing institution of marriage, upon which the good of the individual, the family and society; and 2. Introduce a contrived civil institution which is separated from the nature of marriage, family and society, and antithetical to the objective good of the person, family and society.

I think in Massachusetts you will soon be able to marry your dog. They are so progressive ya know. Better hurry because Germany is already testing the legal waters. Then we will be truly civilized. No need to search for Sodom and Gomorrah, just visit Boston, New York City, Denver, Miami, San Francisco, shoot now days just about and large city and you can walk right into the past, living history in America. It's funny I looked the spelling for Gomorrah and found an article where they think the have found the two ancient cities and they were burnt to the ground. But ya know there is no God and the new definition of the sin of Sodom is they were toasted by God because they were inhospitable not because of immoral sexual behaviors so all is good, party on. No God no sin life is good do what ever you want, except have faith in an omnipotent God then your a bigot and homophobe. There is no truth only your truth unless it is in variance with current societal trends. If your are a student of history and study the rise and fall of civilizations we in American are no longer on the downward slide we are just about to hit bottom. All we need is President Obama in a Toga and feeding Christians to the lions at FedEx Field. "I told everybody we were no longer a Christian Nation" and 60% of Catholics would be cheering him on. If we were not a Christian nation then there would be no need to change laws, tear down crosses, remove the 10 Commandments from Court house. How could all those early pagans that established and lead this country for 225 yrs allow that stuff to be put up in the first place? What a bunch of morons, we are so much better off now without all that God and Christian stuff messing up our society. Hail Caesar!!! Recommend City of God by Augustine good read, very applicable and google Humanae Vitae prophecy at its best.

Homosexuality is defined by sex. It cannot be defined by marriage. It cannot be defined by love. And it cannot be defined by children. It is defined by a perverted sexual act. Were sex not involved, the relationship could not be homo-sexual. Homosexuality is defined by sex. Heterosexuality is defined by God. Amen

Here's some suggestions: 1. Ban Washington from the United States. 2. Impeach the political leaders of Washington or send them off in a row boat in the middle of the Pacific. 3. Catholic Church stop doing weddings for the state.

can they add Spouse C and Spouse D to the certificate as well so that we can include in our marriage our cat and dog?

"Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto God what is God's" means that Caesar belongs to God. Did Caesar create himself? Marriage, espousal, husband, wife, bride, groom, are all terms requiring the human soul to give consent in free will. Fake husband, fake wife, pretend bride, pretend groom, make believe spouse, conjured nuptial, artificial marriage. Partner A, Partner B is incorrect because Partnership is conceived in the soul and homosexual activity is not partnering. Sodomite A and Lesbian B tells us that A is a male and B is a female inflicting assault and battery upon one another.

Check out B4U-Act if you want an eyeful of the push for "normalization" of pedophilia…after ALL, it's their "human right".
See information on the "psychology" conference in 2011 with Harvard and Johns Hopkins "experts" in attendance where normalizing pedophilia (removing it as a mental illness, from the soon-to-be-revised DSM-IV) was a big topic.

[Please note I live in WA and abhor what is happening and am not defending this ludicrous development.] Please check what the state's Dept. of Health has ACTUALLY decided to do: applicants for the license choose from husband, wife, and spouse. See link here: http://blog.thenewstribune.com/politics/

@anonymous Y2012M11D29, 5:18 PM—apparently it matters enough for you to bitch to strangers about it.

Calm down there, pal. Just because no woman will let you stick it in her doesn't mean you have to be all bitchy.
