Supposedly it's the murder capital of the US.

To the topic, it's good news.

Far from it. There are actually around 40 cities in the United States with higher murder rates than Chicago.

Whoops...meant Detroit :P

I'm glad the US is finally catching up to the rest of the first world.

@foxhound_fox: FYI, the great majority of the rest of the world does not recognize same-sex marriage.

Perhaps he meant the developed world?

The rest of the first world does.

If gerg could have read my entire post, he would have noticed I said "first world" and not "world".

I would support and vote on a measure for my state to stop recognizing all forums of marriages. Marriages is a private matter that should not be any interference from the state.

My state doesnt organize same sex marriages just yet, but it would also be as equal if heterosexual marriages weren't organized.

@foxhound_fox: Indeed they do.

So your point was entirely irrelevant and added nothing to the discussion.

That would be fine enough, but we both know that's not going to happen.

@Jd1680a: What benefit would the state or citizens see by the state refusing to recognize marriage?

I wouldn't say they're "joining the 21st century". I mean, in some ancient civilizations like Rome being gay was arguably cooler than being straight.

But, then again I'm just being difficult.

Probably the greatest description of thegerg ever written. *salutes*
