SO MANY GAYS IN BLACK AND WHITE AND ASIANS AND HISPANIC AND ALL ETHNICITIES. THOSE CHOICES OF SIN ARE THEIRS JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE WHO SINS. BEING GAY IS NOT A CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE. WHO WHAT YOUR CHOICES ARE? IT'S NONE OF ANYBODY'S BUSINESS WHAT YOU DO IN YOUR BEDROOM. MORE LIKE A SEXUAL DEVIANCE TO EXPLOIT YOUR SEXUALITY IN PUBLIC. STOP TELLING EVERYBODY YOUR SEX LIFE......WE DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT NO MATTER WHAT. I CALL YOU ALL PERMISCUIOUS AND YOUR SEXUAL DEVIANCE IS SHOWING WHEN YOU PUBLICLY PUT IT ON DISPLAY. WHO CARE WHO ANYONE IS SLEEPING WITH. THAT'S A PRIVATE MATTER AND YOU MEN AND WOMEN WHO EXPLOIT SEXUALITY, SHOULD LEAVE IT PRIVATE. IT'S TERRIBLE TO EXPLOIT SEXUALITY. A MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN 1 MAN AND 1 WOMAN!
AND THAT GOES FOR HETEROSEXUALS TOO. STOP EXPLOITING THE HOMOSEXUALS PUBLICLY. EVRYBODY DOESN'T WHAT TO HEAR ABOUT THEIRS OR YOUR IMMORALITY AND FORNICATION EITHER! STOP IT ALL OF YOU. MAKE THE BEDROOM PRIVATE AGAIN MOVEMENT IS ALL THAT NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE.

One of the four New York scumbags is history.

Mr. Alesi will not be running for re-election. Since his turncoat position on homosexual marriage, the Senator has found himself ostracized by his fellow Republicans.

If there's one thing I totally admire both Hustler publisher Larry Flynt and liberal comedian Bill Maher on it's the fact that they are both impartial when it comes to bashing both Christian and Islamic fundamentalists, i.e. they don't secretly favor one over the other.

Both demonized true same sex LOVE - especially for males - over the centuries (as opposed to mere lustful sex, and of all the three "Abrahamic" religions the Jews were the most tolerant, and I'm not Jewish). One of the results of this was the degeneration of the homosexual male world during the 20th Century and its embracing of the Sexual Revolution and "gay version of the world of Hugh Hefner".

In ancient Greece the exact opposite was the norm: True love between males was accepted and promiscuous lust looked down upon. If a single man just wanted to "get laid" he patronized a woman prostitute, but any sexual interaction with other males was always in the context of a relationship.

I sincerely believe that this is male homosexuality's so-called "primal chord" which - again - was corrupted by post-Constantine Christianity and Radical Islam. And yes, the opponents of same sex marriage could argue that these gay/bi men never pushed for marriage and adoption rights, but by the same token if single persons can adopt children they why not gay couples?

Therefore, individual "gay male lifestyles" must be judged on their own merit and thus the gay male couple who still engages in the promiscuous-sometimes-S & M world depicted in the 1980 film "Cruising" would not likely be proper role models for raising children for this reason alone.

why would one favor one sect of that same cult over another? they worship the same proven false god, the god of abraham.

exactly...the facts prove the abrahamic cults to be based on lies and falsehoods and the god they worship is a false idol.

AGAIN, I'm NOT Jewish myself, just presenting the facts about the "Big Three". Actually, I've taken a lot of flak for the aforementioned opinion from the 'radical gay mafia' who accuses me of having a double standard.

However in my gut I cannot help feeling that the kind of gay male who finds mature relationships "boring" and instead cannot 'get off' unless he is humiliated by some stranger in a public park's bushes isn't playing with a full deck and something(s) corrupted him in that direction.

Also keep in mind that pure biology has instilled the instinct for males to be CARNALLY attracted to females and this alone would greater justify a degree of promiscuous desires in the heterosexual arena.

However no such biological instinct exists in the same sex world, and therefore it is not necessarily "narrow minded" to say that only love or at least amiable familiarity can "justify" same sex sexual liaisons there.

speaking of 2014...will the GOP give up its wrong stance on homosexuality, and gay marriage, or suffer another election cycle of huge losses?

perhaps it will just go through a few final death throws and curl up and die and us true conservatives will form a new party...wonder what the radical far right evangelicals will do? leave?...please?...

you mean polygamy? that was traditional in almost every culture/

you mean when fathers sold their daughters off as cattle? that was traditional in most cultures also?

what traditional marriage is it you speak of.

perhaps if you understood what marriage really is, a social construct that has constantly changed with the societies that construct it, then you might be able to make a cogent comment about it, instead of parroting media soundbytes you don't really understand....

this could be a learning opportunity for you...let's see what you do with it...

How is it the majority of voters in the most Liberal state of California passed a bill protecting traditional marriage and banning gay(fake) marriage, but somehow this poll tries to indicate half of all Americans support gay(fake) marriage?

You clearly understood what definition of traditional marriage the poster was commenting on. Being sarcastic was your only intent.

AIDS - How many die because of this? Its the gays that gave us this blesing. The Liberal Media wants us to believe half the country supports this lifestyle. Its about 20% at best. How long will it be before this whole county falls like Rome or Sodom and Gomorrah. We are only a few years away from financial disaster. One nation with no GOD. 90 million unemployed that are no longer counted. Abandoned houses all over America. One out of every 2 college graduates can not find jobs. Wall street greed and bankers taking from Americans. Blacks killing blacks in the cities. No family unit. Kids with no fathers. Pedophilia all over America. GOD has left America. Obama you have your head in your rear end. You are part of the problem.
White America is the manufacture of all these things. You haven't seen any thing; this is the beginning of the end.

I think half support it and would vote for or be ok with it. I am sure up to 75% don't care if it s or isn't legal. Just that 25% of the religious kooks hold this nation back.

Send ALL religious fanatic extremists of ALL denominations (and cults like Scientology) to Gitmo ... and build MORE Gitmos if necessary. No trial nor Constitutional rights for ANY of them.

Round 'em all up like the Jews were in Nazi Germany and if they even ASK "What's the meaning of this?" LET the arresting 'Gestapo' heroes just draw their (modern versions of) Lugers or Walther P-38s and execute them ON THE SPOT without any disciplinary action afterwards.

Posterity will thank us for this most necessary termination of what future generations will call the "fanatical fundamentalist problem"!
