Nice of the Captin, but sad and disappointing that they even had to do it in the first place.

Ah the US, so forward thinking in some ways but still in the middle ages in others. Just let gays marry FFS, they are humans too!

these don`t have to be rhetorical questions. I`m not claiming to know the answer. I`m actually curious and simply don`t have time to look it up.

anyhow, typing in all caps does not impart authority to your post. if you really know the answer you could convince me in an appropriate fashion, i.e. with citation. until such time I remain convinced that you do not.

...and in that case also with the exception of the military. Simply flying your airforce into another country`s airspace, even for a short while for, say, a reconnaissance mission, will cause diplomatic issues if you don`t have the other country`s permission to do so.

Departure country/state/city laws apply at all times.

Until you step foot off of the plane.

No chewb...

If a plane leaves from Spain bound for NY, and a mother gives birth in the air over US soil, is that child American? NOPE! It is Spanish.

THEREFORE, if a gay couple leaves from NYC bound for LA, and gets married over Canadian soil, THEY ARE STILL IN AMERICA.

all you smart guys who claim to know which nation`s law applies: how do you overcome /lex loci delicti/? is there any jurisdictional component of the Tokyo Convention that supersedes Canadian sovereignty of the airspace over their nation? Do you even know what ICAO stands for? Does it hurt when you pull legal arguments out of your arse or are you used to that by now?

think that it would still be American laws on-board the plane because it`s an American plane... and I`m guessing that it was from a American city to New York so the drated up law would still count...

"What if the plane had to temporarily stop in another country? Say they had to land in Toronto briefly. Would the flight from Toronto to NYC then be Canadian soil, therefore legal?"

If the flight made an emergency stop in another country, but the destination and departure was in the US, then until you step off the plane, you are subject to US law. Soooooooooooooo.

A better way to do this is just to go into international waters. No laws out there folks.

Uh, since it is a US-US flight, the plane remains US territory. So gay marriage still isn`t legal.

Technically this doesn`t work since the airplane is still American soil no matter what land is under it.

Er, Lionhart, I guess you didn`t consider the fact that they were flying from Oregon or Michigan or somewhere like that? So they would naturally go over Canada anyway in their flightpath?

It`s still GAY, but OK with the Vatican as long as they`re not married (to each other...).

That`s pretty sneaky and clever. I`m a little surprised that the pilot was able to do it, unless he normally goes that way or was close enough to veer off course without being noticed on radar.

5Cats - didn`t you know that you could have substituted a pair of Grizzly testicles? Of course, you have to harvest them yourself. This is a relatively new development of course - you might not have received the notification.

(Mail in Canada is well known to be unreliable, as the Elk that the "Crown`s Delivery Servitude" are finicky at best. Many letters have been delivered half-eaten and sticky (sticky as the only food that Elk eat are called "Beaver Tails" - no, not real tails of beavers - they are actually pastries inflated with maple syrup). Also, at Christmastime, half are drafted by the Santa Squad leaving the traditional greeting cards to actually be delivered halfway through June.)

The procedure for harvesting the testicles is quite complicated as well - and requires (yes actually) a broom, a bone from a grandparent, three triple-A batteries and a Kilt (no underwear allowed.)

No. Priests are Catholic, Catholics do not allow gay marriage. It was either a minister of a denomination that does or some other official.
Catholics are about as anti-gay marriage as it is possible to be.


so a priest touching an altar boy isn`t gay?

Would that actually work in a legal sense, i.e. would their marriage be legally recognised when they got home?

You can get a marriage license in a state that allows it (like, say, Massachusetts) and then have the marriage ceremony in your home state (like, say, Texas) if you want to. Then your marriage is legal but you don`t have to go to some far away place for the ceremony.

Well, you see, the Supreme court of Canada (the place where they all wear beaver pelts on their heads) came down with a decision about 300 years ago that stated all persons have a right to marry. Problem was that Women were not recognised as legal persons until 133 years ago.
This presented a bit of a problem, seeing that most of the men were hetrosexual but were not allowed to legally marry women. Yet the Licensing Dam (kinda like a registrar) would not allow two Men to marry each other.
The Beaver-wearing Judges of the Supreme court (all 4.5 of them) rectified the situation by declaring the practice of requiring marriage licences unconstitutional, therefore allowing men and women to marry. This had the side effect of allowing two people to simply declare that they want to be married three times and present each other with Moose Horns and then they`re official.

Divorce, however, requires the sacrifice of a toe.
