Honestly it's embarrassing that, as a nation, we refuse to extend equal right to all citizens.

Obama will not gain or loose a single vote based on this. Anti gay already hated him. Pro gay knew his record on gay rights was second to none BEFORE his announcement.

This is leadership. Plain and simple.

The 1/2 breed mongrel would sell his own children for a vote. Curious how just yesterday mistah obama announces he supports queer marriage and then today (almost 50 years after the alleged incident) some people are accusing Mitt of giving a queer a haircut in high school. Smacks of conspiracy!!!

I do not disagree. The timing is suspicious. But a conspiracy of timing is not the same as a conspiracy of facts. Mitt Romney should still apologize to that guy - even 50 years later.

This is an example of how many of the same people who oppose interracial marriage oppose gay marriage.(Thus the terms 1/2 breed and mongrel)

If you oppose gay marriage and consider yourself decent and fair minded, check your fellow anti-gay marriage pals. Is this the guy you want to be counted with?

It is sort of like watching who was mean to animals when you were a kid. Those were the ones you just knew you couldn't trust.

Seems the moral condition of the country started a downward roll when it was decided by a court that life was not important. Just as a court ruled that gay marriage was ok.
The courts have made themselves the most powerful of the three branches of government.
Rulings are being considered laws.

Easy to say, impossible to prove....but that's how it is with this kind of statement.

That's why they are used so often.

Moral condition improves in the US when the government remains secular.

It declines when it begins to succumb to religious interests groups who want to make a fictional book the basis for law that governs everyone.

So you think discriminating against people is an acceptable American value?

What's wrong with socialist - have you taken a gander at Germany and Norway and their standard of living compared to ours?

Immoral - well I would suggest that immoral is subjective.

Dear Kluck,
Being queer is a choice nothing more. A lousy preference hardly deserves civil rights, therefore discrimination is not possible.
Socialism is a complete failure, it only works until you run out of other people's money, if you such a commie then do us all a favor and move to Germany or Norway. Subjective morals is immorality, that's why you liberals with no character, self control, or shame find it so appealing.

Dear SatansWhore,
Actually, after I deliver Meals on Wheels in the morning and I go work with my hospice resident, my buddies are delivering a truckload of canned goods to 2 food pantries. You know, things that really make a difference to those suffering the most, the same stuff you sick twisted liberal nut jobs spout off about, but ever never quite get around to lifting one delicate finger. Barf.
Kind Regards,
The majority of Americans

I can the honophobic agenda is alive with Mr.Wonderful. When are you homophobic idiots going to learn that you will never hold down any group of people, gay people will rise up and take the rights they deserve. No one will keep us down, we are Americans and we will fight until we have every right the straight community has. All of your idiotic blabber will do nothing but make us more determined to achieve our goal of equality. This country was built on equality for EVERYONE, not just the people you agree with. If you don't like gay people then I suggest you find a nice cave to live in where true Americans don't have to listen to your anti-gay ranting.
Obama for President!!! Give us 4 more years!!!
