Yawn.. DOMA should go away because the Federal Government lacks the enumerated power under the Constitution to regulate or define marriage.
It's a State issue, and has nothing to do with whether the law is "bigoted" or not.
BTW, if you can't keep up with the conversation, and whom you are responding to, then perhaps you aren't intelligent enough to engage in said conversation and should simply see your way out of it.
And another thing, perhaps you should learn a little grammar and invest in a spell checker? It would be easier to take you seriously if you didn't type like a 5 year old.
being a states rights activist, id have to agree with you..

except it isnt just an issue like alcohol usage, gamblimg, medical pot, or bunny ranches.

it is a civil rights issue.

that is where ill let the fedreal government tell the most bigoted steas what to do...

we all must have the same rights from state to state...or our country is just a patchwork of heehaw republics!! do you want that?

marriage should be fedreally protected right for everyone...including the LGBT community ...voting is also a right...

I take offense to the purgeing of voter rolls....good thing the federal courts are stepping in and shooting down the bigots...

So I have to hide in my house to avoid vulgarities and a general lowering of the bar in my own country ? And you poofs don't have to show any class by keeping the phallic symbols away from public display, so as not to offend ? And you say that a majority of us accept this generally low class as ok, huh ? Make up any poll results that you like, I recognize all the lies that I am told. Why don't you take some reading lessons? I said the giant dildoe was offensive, not the polite gay guy who doesn't use a penis as his battle symbol...
just for a day....

or you can go and enjoy yourself at the parade....

just dont try and tell others how to express themselves...

if their pararde has the approval of the city and the planning dept??

you should be satisified, as there are no official laws that support your bigotry on a local level..

you should slow down, dont get so flustered by me.

I said that a majority of americans now accept that the LGBT community exists.... it is not a made up poll, just google it....

but what is the big deal??

they let everybody march!!

it called the first amendment.

I know you want two constitutions??? but the rest of us are fine with just one...

BTW, I am a straight gay rights supporter, not an actual gay person..

just to let you know

btw, most lgbt are about the highest class of people ive ever met...
im guessing you dont know many gay folks...

that is how people coming out has flipped that poll into the plus for the LGBT community to be accepted by a slim majority.

once a straight person realizes that someone they love is gay??
they soften their stance....

at least if they have any semblance of humanity...

it time for you to meet a classy gay person you love!!!

in other words, you probabaly already know some, but just dont know their gay yet.

If anyone didn't realize that Obama is the most arrogant U.S. President ever, they certainly should now. And he will hang ANYONE out to dry to further his intensely personal ambitions - his "dreams" from his father. Ambassador Stevens learned that the hard way.

Obama let the gay man suffer in Libya. Look what they did to his body.

The approval of the city and planning dept.? How about class and consideration for your fellow man ?
Why should I be satisified (misspelled, for your ease of reading, no spell checker yet ?) that decency laws are not present to protect us from the absolute revolting nature of gay "parardes"(misspelle d, for your ease of reading, no spell checker yet ?)
Slow down ? Try keeping up....
And you stated that a majority SUPPORT gay issues, not merely accept its existence.
As far as letting everybody march, I never saw a dildoe in a parade until poofs got the right to parade and prance around, throwing themselves in our faces.
The 1st Amendment does not make decency laws invalid.
I like the Constitution that we have used for the last century, not the constantly rewritten one that we are now handed...
As far as highest class of people that you have ever met, try getting out into the world and you might meet high caliber people more often and also discover that gays are not so high class after all...
I have known many gays in my day, and most of those are now dead from AIDS, casualties of the 70's, But they would not have agreed with offending people with new-found rights that they were beaten up for fighting for, they would have sneered at the childish behavior of obscene parades. They would have disowned the filth that passes for freedom of expression and made the claim to keep offensive behavior away from the rest of us, so as to allow us to not erect fences. They would not have agreed with teaching anything at all in schools, they would have said "keep it away from children".
So, please do not presume to speculate on who I may or not know, you'd be surprised who I have known in my time. I am merely against the same sex marriage angle and the indoctrination in school issues, and against Chongo. I am also against idiots having access to computers.
And I readily admit to trolling, anyone else ready to confess ?
thnaks for letting us know more about you....

but ill still place a unbigoted open mined person of any persuation over your class......which is a bigoted one I guess..

stay home on gay pride day if you cant handle the costumes.....

what else can i say, you are fighting a losing battle against an inescapable tide....

hate all you want?? but id spend my limited time on earth wiser than telling people who arnt possibly ever going to listen to you your veiws..........

as you can tell, even on conservative topix.net .....our side has much more support...therefore you shpould spend your time doing less hating, and more lovin!!

im sorry you are bitter about where this country has naturally gone, socially.

I find your veiws and assumptions to be offensive and bigoted....

and a breach of decency.....am I asking you to stay home??

only if you feel uncomfortable when other express themsleves...?

somehow I feel like you must have a problem with this??????????

In late May, Wash. DC-based investigative journalist Wayne Madsen had a bombshell revelation about Obama’s membership in a Chicago gay club, Man’s Country. Madsen also reported on Obama’s sexual relationships with other men, including named D.C. politicians and Donald Young, the openly-gay choir-director of the church in Chicago of which Obama was a member for some 20 years — Jeremy Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ black liberation theology. Obama’s relationship with Young was confirmed by Larry Sinclair, who claims to have had two sex-cocaine trysts with Obama.

There were two other openly gay men in Wright’s church: Larry Bland and Nate Spencer. In late 2007, as Obama began his ascent to be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, in a span of 1½ months, all three men “conveniently” died:

Bland was murdered execution-style on November 17, 2007;
Young was murdered execution-style on December 24, 2007;
Spencer reportedly died of septicemia, pneumonia, and HIV on December 26, 2007.

Sir Buffoon,
Do you actually believe that you are spreading love(LOL) on this site ? Then, I submit, pity yourself and your backwoods bumpkin views. For you have truly been robbed of reality.
good point....with just responding to you, I am forced to point out human weakness, instead of strength...

since Im not gonna get to know your nice side....

ill just say that tolarance and love towards those, who are vastly different from us, is crucial to move conciousness forward on this planet.....

you wouldnt understand I guess.

that I why i dont spew hate at you, just pity.

calling you a bigot is just stating the truth.

Yawn...

You can stomp your feet all you like about how it should be, how you want it to be, and how you feel- it doesn't change facts.

Marriage is a State issue, plane and simple. Don't like it, I suggest you draft an Amendment for ratification consideration.

That is exactly what we are, you must have completely slept through US history.

I suggest you pick up a copy of the Federalist Papers, though I doubt you could comprehend it.

In the first place it has nothing to do with the topic of the thread! In the second place your statement if false! In the third place this is why Prop 8 is and will always be Unconstitutional in the state of California and ruled so by 2 courts now! Marriage equality is about to be the law of the land in California very soon again! And here is why! Don't you just hate it when that pesky OL Constitution gets in your way! Try refuting the link or STFU and do try to stay ON topic please! LOL

crowd pleaser??

more of a crowd turn off, from what I can see from the feedback you are getting!!

but to each his own, if that is the way you show love.

all i can surmise from your last statement is that a gay person has never been kind to you....

i wonder why???(not)
