ALL marriages can then be considered EQUAL then! Since regressive types and homosexuals have critized on the "sanctity" of man/woman marriage, then Let's go political! Give the homosexuals what thyve wanted to start with; ex: broadcasting homosexuals getting married at Gaymmys.

Turbo, this is not a criticism but since you support gay marriage, what is your definition of marriage?

I know this isn't directed at me. But Marriage to me (and this is probably why im still single) Is a commitment of one person to another. promising to be dedicated to each other in love. I guess you can say that marriage is stating " I have found the person I want to spend the rest of my life with."

I havent found that person that I know i never want to be without.

That being said, Who cares who marries who? Who I marry has no bearing on you or how you express your love to your significant other. Same as your marriage on me. The other thing I can say is marriage is a contract of two souls. The paper has little value to that concept. However marriage has certain benefits and responsibilities in a social realm. That why i say let gay people get married. If your church does not want to marry them then don't. If it does then do. But let those who love each other and are committed to each other express that commitment in a binding and legal way.

But you straights don't mind engaging in it. Ever hear of a thing called a vagina?

Not for you. But what gives you the right to tell others how to express their love? I doubt you would be ok with me telling you how to.

Neither is vaginal . Many people have straight sex who are not in love. So much for your argument.

Way to go Sen. William Sharer, R-Farmington and stand up for our values and decency, we don't need same sex marriage, the evolutionary theroy, or birth control talked about or taught in our schools.

Also a warm thank you for your support of our ongoing efforts to have our own school district here in Kirtland where we can teach our children, and the poor Navajo children in our town the way we think they should be taught and raised.

William Sharer (R-Farmington) and Nora Espinoza (R-Roswell) are among the most far right wing bigots in the state senate and in reality their bills are nothing but political and time consuming. Equal Marriage is the law in NM and it cannot be repealed. The claim can be taken up to the US Supreme Court and since same-sex marriage is legal in this great state, it would be upholded at the federal level as well. These two politicians need to focus on getting New Mexico out of being last, Create jobs, protect the environment, our water, help small businesses grow, improving our infrastructure, healthcare, and education. There are so many things this state needs to do to improve the lives of its residents. Let the people live free, equally and happy.

Wowsers... Whammer jammer what are your thoughts on germ theory? Evolution is fact. Get over it. If you're a product of the kirtland education system....maybe your students should be put on a "special" curriculum.

Anywho, don't let your little view prohibit others from what they choose to define as liberty or happiness in their private lives

Limiting or taking away the rights of an unpopular is a dangerous slippery slope!
