    Congratulations New Jersey! Utah, it won't be long before same sex marriages are performed here.

    Congratulations to the happy couples!

    Nationwide change is coming even more swiftly than I had hoped for.

    I'm wondering when people will open up betting pools -- or maybe the already have! -- to bet on exactly how long it will take to win over all 50 states, and to guess which state will be the last one to get the memo about obeying the US Constitution.

    Just recently, I would have bet that it would take 10 years -- but now, who knows? Five years, three? And will it be some state in the Deep South, or a state like Utah, that lags behind the longest?

    Whatever those answers turn out to be, it's definitely coming. And that's a Good Thing.

    Congratulations New Jersey!!!!

    I hope the Saints prepare their hearts and spirits to accept the changes the Lord is promoting among his children. Peace and justice for all.

    Hopefully, Utah will extend marriage to polygamists before being forced to do so.

    @ConservativeSmasher --

    "Hopefully, Utah will extend marriage to polygamists before being forced to do so."

    You'll be waiting a looooooooong time for that one.

    Polygamy and incest both convey a significantly increased risk of harm compared to other forms of marriage.

    Gay marriage doesn't.

    It's a very simple distinction.
