    "Oath of celebricy..." (celebrity) was funny! His recovery from that little boo-boo was even better!

    Well said, excellent mix of funny and serious.

    New Zealand, Uruguay, The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, and Denmark all offer their citizens nationwide marriage equality. Looks like Colombia is next. Seriously? Columbia is going to have marriage equality before the United States? There`s something wrong with that picture.

    @markust: Columbia? Really? Wow.
    It must be so leasbians can get married. Seriously, girls (OK! Women!) from Columbia are very pretty... I`d go to an all-girl wedding!

    4 Bridesmaids, Bride, Bride, 4 Bridesmaids

    Sounds good!

    In NZ this guy is a conservative. With conservatives like that you would have less need for liberals.

    @LordJim - he is too. I think the major difference in NZ is that the government isn`t dictated to by lobbyist, in this case in particular by religious groups.

    When I was in NZ I was chatting to people about this and they seemed very happy with he way things are run. Mainly because their politicians are not hidden in their huge mansions and behind bodyguards. They will very happily have a chat with you when you see them in the supermarket, they are allowed (for the most part) to do and say what they want and not be forced by political allegiance.

    It is a very open system which is run by by normal people.

    @markust123 don`t forget the UK, we are getting there. It may take a while to get the legal wording right but it definitely won`t be stopped.

    I just don`t get why people are so stressed by the idea of gay marriage. But then, I am not deluded and brainwashed by religion.
