Finally equality and a possibility to end some bigotry. For along side the choice of lifestyle and behavior that is a religious choice, since all religion is a choice, and the fact that all religious behavior is protected, those of the gay soicety will be protected!

This is a very proud day for those who are truely christains. For those who act in Christ and are equal, dont judge but let only god judge, and those who do not colonize but practice only within their own choice are truely christains!

For all christains know that they are not to judge, not to force acts onto the public and surely all christains know that law is not to be force religion onto the public!

as a Christain, i am very proud today.

Christains, Christ and the MFC have nothing to do with each other. My opinion is that its all a cult for power greed and politically gained position.
