But why would you marry someone of the same sex? The point of marriage is to mark the occasion of the start of a family.

I'll love Google when they show this kind of suppoert for group marriage.
Not before.

How do you think the people who bought GOOG at 700 feel about them?

Also - there's an article up on Google's new funding for "ideas that will change the world"... worth checking out, actually. I can't remember exactly what the post was earlier on slog about "someone should make a thing that does funding/management/etc for good ideas" but this sounds similar. =)

@1: Not everyone at Google is an Obamaite. I've heard rumors of the occasional Ron Paul fan...

It's not that Silicon Valley (Google inclusive) is pro-Democrat. It's that Silicon Valley is pro-social-libertarian, which in a post-Newt-Gingrich world usually means anti-Republican.

I noticed your blog mentioned Prop 8, and I wanted to respond with some thoughts on that. Prop 8 isn't an issue about "rights". It is about preserving the definition of "marriage" as between a man and a woman. Gay people can do what they want, and they can even enjoy many civil benefits through civil unions and the such. But that isn't marriage. Gay people should be treated with kindness and respect, like anyone. Gay people aren't the issue here nor the problem. The problem is that 4 arrogant judges in black robes sitting in their ivory tower overturned the express will of a clear majority of California citizens when they ruled by fiat and illegally legislated from the bench when they unilaterally redefined marriage. Prop 8 allows the citizens of California to say no to Judicial Activism and Judicial Tyranny. There are elements of the judiciary that are way out of control and are endangering the balance of power in our republic by getting involved in "legislating". This has got to stop. Voting yes on Prop 8 will help put those elitist judges back in their place and let them know they cannot arrogantly overule the will of the people in a matter as fundamental to the future of civilization as the bedrock institution of marriage. That is something important enough that it should not be left to 4 elitist judges to impose by fiat.

May I speak a word to my gay friends, neighbors, coworkers, and fellow-countrymen. You are a minority and I'm sure you recognize that. And that is ok. But please show kindness and tolerance for the rest of us and vote with us to help preserve marriage as between a man and a woman. I know you may not have any personal parochial interest in voting yes on Prop 8. But as your friend and neighbor, I'm asking for your vote to help preserve the definition of this institution that is so important. Thank you.

@7--Why is it important to retain a definition of marriage that is clearly antiquated?

What purpose would it serve?

Wow, a lot of people must have Proposition 8 Google Alerts. We can have some fun with this.

The honesty of @7 is , ummmm, refreshing.

May I speak a word to my gay friends, neighbors, coworkers, and fellow-countrymen. You are a minority and I'm sure you recognize that. And that is ok. But please show kindness and tolerance for the rest of us

How dare minorities want equal protection under the law!

How dare same-sex couples threaten a sacred institution exemplified by a 50% divorce rate!

How dare you not show kindness to me by saying your love is equal to mine!

My marriage was doing fine till those queers got to secure inheritance rights and wrecked everything!

You homophobes would be funny if you didn't have so much blood on your hands.

Fuck you and your piety.

Morons like #7 just aren't going to get it until we stop calling civil unions "marriage". Isn't there something called "separation of church and state" that can help with that?
