Good luck to them, but they better not count their chickens until the actual vote is taken. In NY the pastors and bishops waged a hysterical last-minute campaign that brought it down to the wire.

Good luck.

Don't you mean another state has gone to the dark side? ;)

Wait...this will be a big campaing issue soon.  To hell with jobs.  You can get more traction with side issues.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Brace yourselves for another major weather event from God to teach us a lesson!

^^^^We just had one-- huge snow and ice storm with power outages and all kinds of mayhem last week. I thought it was supposed to be the fire next time. God has already warned us that teh gay marriage will be the end of everything. (Not.)
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

No, I think it was the tornados in Alabama last night.  Remember, God's aim is not very good. ;)

I'm reminded of my boys, and the toilets they can never seem to hit...

As long as they don't vote on this issue, I think Washington's homosexuals will be OK.
EDIT: Of course, they're not gonna do that. We all know how much theists actually trust their gods.

If god didn't want gay marriage, he would not have made so many gays.  :-*
