Gay marriage comments
(Mon, 03 Nov 2008 12:00:00 GMT)
Obama won, yippee, now it will all be better. That’s the second time in a row I’ve used "yippee". In my previous post, I made a glib comment about gay marriage. It’s one thing to think that BHO is the savior of the world, but who would have guessed that Californians would approve a state constitution amendment to define marriage between a man and a woman? Supporters of the amendment claim that voters "care about marriage," but I am of the mind that only a small percentage care either way. Most don’t see how they are affected by gay marriage or the lack thereof. In New York, gay marriage supporters are heartened over election results that will change the majority of the state Senate from Republican to Democrat. I suspect that change was related to the dismal performance of state legislators and spillover from the popular Democratic presidential ticket, more than it was to gay marriage. A side-effect, but I guess they’ll take it.
Coming soon: I'd like to incorporate
, a free service that associates avatars with email addresses. So, if you enter an email address, my blog can show your avatar and you don't have to register with gocek.org. But I'm concerned about impersonation, so I also plan to support
, another free service that provides authentication. OpenID means that you can register with one OpenID provider, and then use that login with any other site that supports it, and OpenID is becoming popular. This means that gocek.org does not need to have its own user registrations, but the blogs can verify that the user is who he or she claims to be. The blogs will still take anonymous comments, but will note that some comments were left by "verified" users.
