Same-sex couples lined up Monday in front of the Multnomah County Building to register for Oregon's new domestic partnership.
It was the first day gay couples were allowed to register as domestic partners after U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman dismissed on Friday a petition lawsuit. Oregon became the ninth state to approve spousal rights in some form for same-sex couples.
While gay couples exchanged rings and exited the county building with their certificates of registration, Christian legal group Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is planning to appeal Friday's ruling which was described as a "severe blow to the preservation of marriage and the family."...
Hi, The same sex couples are a mockery to the normal civilians. Are we in a stage now that we have severe gender issues in our country. No respect for normally long term married couples (opposite sex of course)and are we denying the fact that God did not make a Adam and Steve He created Adam and Eve. Thats why if you ask these Gay people they keep saying that Jesus loves them they haven't really read the Holy Scriptures they are debating God's creations and turning this world into a wicked place to live and turning it into homosexuality. By Registering them in Oregon you are trying to hide the fact that there is nothing Positive going to come out of it. Let me see if the Judge who got them registered has Gay children and what will he/she do if he finds out?
