Bill Restricting Marriage to People of Faith Moves to Oklahoma Senate

I'm pretty confused about this one: the Oklahoma House passed a bill to Senate that would require that all marriages are done through religion, because "marriage was created by religion, not by government, and they shouldn't have a say in it."
Marriage, though, was probably started for totally secular reasons. Contracts that can be considered equal to today's marriage papers have been around for so long. It was the 24th Council of Trent, in around 1560, which brought the church into marriage. Prior to that, marriage was a secular institution entirely overseen by the local government.
This means that anyone who doesn't want to be religiously married would have to go through a common-law marriage instead, which makes taxes and other aspects of married life more difficult.
Mostly I'm confused that A) something so backwards is attempting to be passed in an attempt to stop gay marriage and B) these people don't realize how this would also hurt themselves. Many people already married would now be considered common-law marriages, leading to all sorts of troubles. The whole idea is "Oh we'll let the churches decide who gets married" with him assuming every church is bigoted as he is. But the thing is, there are many LGBT friendly churches and so he's effectively legalized gay marriage.
You can read the full bill here. Please, someone read it and tell me I'm misunderstanding, because this is ridiculous. What is going on in Oklahoma?!

@amog32 My thought is that if it isn't clear to anyone reading the bill what it does and doesn't allow, it's not a good bill.
Well, I couldn't find out many updates, but it seems that many people think news are over reacting about this bill. If you read the details, it does make some changes but people are still able to marry without being religious. However, the language used is different, which brings it back to my idea that religion shouldn't even be in the government's bill regarding marriage at all, unless it is to say something like regardless of marriage. This bill uses language like "denomination" which refers to Christian religions, and only adds Jewish thoughts to that, meaning that it's still treating religions differently.
@yakwithalan Who knows. I'm going to go search for an update on this. I'll let you all know what I find out.
Who will be the first one to publicly condemn this bill?
@marshalledgar It's amazing what makes it to be considered. Can't some bills just be thrown out for stupidity? @TrevorGoldley Let's just hope it doesn't get much farther. @missophiestik Hopefully, it won't pass! If it does, I imagine a lot of appeals and big revolts.

10 Secrets That Experts Of Dog Photography Don’t Want You To Know
Dog photography is a popular photographic medium nowadays. This might be a picture of your furry friend for your Instagram feed. Or a professional drawing at a dog show. Knowing how to photograph dogs is a great way to practice Photography in general. You don’t need your own dog photo studio to take great pictures. Read all the ten secrets information you need to do Photography. Focus Your Dog Character For Photography Taking Photography of dogs makes a lot of sense if you can focus/capture their behaviour in a photo. It’s fun to enjoy a popular activity, such as taking Photography of dogs in their favourite spots, tapping on the porch, or grabbing a Frisbee. To capture a dog’s character, ask yourself what is unique about your dog and try to capture that character in front of the camera. Use A Lens Fast For Dog Photography. Dogs don’t stay! Wink, you’ll miss their paradox, so it’s essential to use a faster lens and a faster shutter speed. My go-to lens is a 70-200mm f2.8 telephoto lens that is fast enough to freeze motion on that all-important shot, and you can zoom in and out quickly if needed. It also draws well in the background when taking photos. Base lenses are also great – 50mm or 85mm works well. Make sure you open your roller shutter. Of course, opening the shutter will give you faster shutter speeds and fantastic bokeh. But it can also obscure parts of your subject’s face. Use Dog Photography Natural Light. You don’t have to worry about flashes and complicated lighting settings when shooting dogs Photography. The best option is to use natural and constant light; this won’t scare them or make red eyes on your photos. https://www.clippingpathclient.com/dog-photography/ Whether you use ambient or studio lighting, the general rule is to choose bright, diffuse lighting that will help create a more pleasing portrait. If you’re in a slightly darker environment or your puppy doesn’t respond well to bright light, you can always increase the ISO for faster action shots, even in dark weather. High ISO, you can shoot quickly! When taking photos outdoors, sunny weather is ideal for balanced, diffused lighting. A sunny day is more challenging to take pictures than a sunny day, so don’t worry if the weather is sunny. Focus On The Dog’s Photography Eyes Your dog’s eyes should become the focus of your Photography. As humans, we are well connected with eye contact. Please focus on the dog’s eyes and use them to your advantage for dog photos. This, of course, draws the viewer’s attention to the subject. Focus on the eyes first, then reset focus as needed and apply the method again. The moving picture of a dog gets attention. It’s like a picture of a man. You can use your eyes to create depth, an unusual eye colour, or to create a sense of privacy. Use a wider aperture (f / 2.8 or less) to improve this feel! https://www.clippingpathclient.com/car-photography/ Add People To Dog Photography. The best photo of the dog alone or the owner is a classic photo. Use automatic lighting to prevent lightning from disturbing animals. The standard 50mm lens is ideal for this type of image. Shallow DOF (Depth of Field) focuses on the object in the centre of the frame, so keep your eyes focused. Remember to live fast when taking photos like this, as animals can quickly get into trouble if they take photos outdoors. Choose An Excellent Background For Dog Portrait Photography The background of the frame is as important as your content. Get a beautiful background in a different colour from the dog. Tree trunks, wood, gates, benches, bricks, and doors make beautiful backgrounds or frames for photographing dogs.

How to make soy candles?
08 Steps to Making Soy Candles: Beginner's Guide Making candles has been a popular hobby for centuries. From how to make candles, how to get started making candles, and how to use candle waxes, we’ve got you covered! In this blog post we will discuss how to make soy candles. Soy is a healthier alternative than paraffin or beeswax because it burns cleaner and leaves less soot behind. It also doesn't produce an odor while burning. The process of making soy candles isn't difficult - here are the 08 steps involved: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz9c4SbjwmM Step One: Get the Right Supplies Before you begin making your soy candles, be sure to have all of your supplies ready. You will need a few household items that most people already have lying around their house. These include an old pot or saucepan for melting wax, measuring cups and spoons, spoon stirrers (wooden chopsticks or lollipop sticks work great), a wick for each candle you plan to make, and of course the wax itself. You will also need a heat source - either an electric stove top burner or hot plate, or a camp stove outside if it is warm enough. If using an outdoor area like your backyard, be sure that there is no grass or plants getting in the way of your wax. While it is unlikely that you will get burned, there are more chances for accidents if your surface area is cluttered with anything else but just the candle making supplies. Step Two: Prepare Your Wick and Molding Tools For how to make soy candles, place one end of the wick into a pencil holder and tightly wrap it around an inch or two. If you’re using lollipop sticks then place one end of the lollipop stick inside your measuring cup, about an inch or so from the bottom and hold in place with your thumb as shown here: No matter what you are making, you will need materials to work with. When you are crafting, you will need the right tools just as much as the right supplies. With the right tools, you'll be able to make the best creations possible. The first thing you want to figure out is what your wick and molding tools will be. Some excellent wick and molding tools for use are: -inverted needle nose pliers -razor blade -disposable gloves -duck tape -PVC pipe, 3/8" diameter to 1/2" diameter. Step Three: Melt Your Wax Once you have gotten your supplies ready, begin by filling a pot halfway with water and heating it until the water is boiling. While waiting for this to happen, pour soy wax flakes into a compatible container that can withstand high temperatures such as Pyrex or ceramic bowls. Once the wax has melted in the top of your double boiler, add scent if desired and stir continuously. Step Four: Prep Your Molding Tools You will need your mold(s) ready. If you’re using a mason jar or something similar, be sure that the rim of the jar is completely dry without any leftover soap residue on it as this can prevent your candles from setting properly. You may need to lightly sand the area around how to make soy candles so that it is completely smooth and free of any dirt or soap residue, before placing your wick in place. Step Five: Position Your Wick How do you get a steady stream of wax for how long? If using a glass jar or other mold, position how to make soy candles so that it is centered and the wick remains straight. If using a container with a flat bottom such as an old candle holder or something similar then you can place your how to make soy candles anywhere in this type of container without needing anything else holding it into place. Step Six: Pour Your Wax The last step is how to make soy candles. Fill your container with the melted wax, making sure how to get any air bubbles out of it as you do so. The wick should absorb the liquid and expand slightly; this will help keep how to make soy candles straight. If there are any gaps in between how to make soy candles and how to make soy candles, fill them in with more melted wax. You can also add how to melt wax by putting the container into a larger pot of hot water until how to get any air bubbles out is completely filled. Step Seven: Allow Your Candle To Cool You will know that your candle has hardened when it no longer feels how to make soy candles. At this point, you can cut your wick down or how do they remove wax? You’ll need a pair of scissors and the bottom of your candle jar (or something similar) will work as well. If there are any loose pieces of how to get any air bubbles out floating on top then gently push them back down how to make soy candles. Step Eight: Enjoy! Once how do they remove wax? A new, hot wax may contain a variety of unique elements as well as the natural oils unique to the person’s skin. Once the wax starts to cool, those natural oils will start to crystallize and the wax will lose its stickiness. The heat of the wax also makes the wax removed from the skin a lot more difficult to peel off, which often results in a painful removal process. At a professional salon, a new wax is removed with a spatula. Spatulas are useful for removing both hard and soft waxes. Once the wax is no longer soft, a special type of spatula, called a “wax melter,” is used . has been cut, pull out the wick and let your candle how to get any air bubbles out for a few minutes before lighting it. Enjoy soy candles Aroma of Soy Candles There are many benefits of using soy candles. They are completely natural, soya is grown sustainably, and they are non-toxic. If you are looking for a candle that is made with all natural ingredients, soy is for you. Your nose will be delighted with the aroma of our soy candles. We offer two types of soy candle; votives and pillar candles. The votives are made with a smaller diameter wick, so the scent has more time to build before it is burned up. The fragrance of our votives is strong. The pillar candles are bigger and provide more scent when lit, but the votives are perfect for an intimate meal. CONCLUSION Many people are switching to soy candles in order to help the environment. These candles are made of soy wax, which can be found in many homes. By making the switch to soy candles, the toxins in the air decrease because soy candles burn cleaner than other forms of candles. Organic soy is made by using true food grade soybean oil. Organic soy wax has not been treated with any synthetic chemicals, like is often done with paraffin waxes. The candle fuels the creation of natural fragrance through the melting and vaporization of fragrance oils. These candles also come in many different colors, shapes, and sizes.
