Excuse me but it says alot that THEY EVEN WENT TO TRY? They had to know they couldn't, I don't really care about whose gay and who isn't as long as they keep it indoors....I don't want to sleep with them so it means nothing whatsover to me in that way but i do think it shouldn't be public knowledge!
I took my Gson to the park here about 9yrs ago and 2 women were sitting over there deep kissing and hands all over one another,My Gson was 3 but he knew it was wrong because he couldn't take his eyes off them and well,its kept us out of the park,Thats not right,a park is for CHILDREN not lesbians!

If they are residents of White Pine, why wouldn't they go to the Jefferson County courthouse to get a license?

I am a Christian and no matter what you agree with or do not agree with you can not spread hate. That's fine to disagree but no one is impressed by hate filled messages.

Two people of the same sex cannot possibly be "married". They can pretend to be married, they can pretend to be a "mommy" when they are a man. They can pretend that oral sex is sex, but it isn't. Just ask Bill Clinton.

You are so very right, its so sad the hate that people have towards other humans just because they have a different way of life. Unfortunately, alot of people in this area are extremenly ignorant. I know the Bible plainly states its wrong, but it also states many other things are wrong as well, divorce,etc,etc. Its funny how people seem to pick and choose which sins are ok and which ones are not. I will NEVER teach my children to hate anyone just because they are different. I think alot of people are taught to hate in church by preachers who are inadaquate and abuse their position, isnt it ironic that some people want the very best doctors when it comes to their health, but they trust souls to individuals who are extremenly uneducated in religion. People need to stop hating for God doest teach us to hate!

Marriage is one of those issues that fall under two masters, Caesar and the church. Caesar (the government) controls taxes, contracts etc. The different churches have their own individual beliefs about whether they should sanctify the union or not.
I believe in separation of Church and state. I do not want the State to tell the churches how to believe and what they have to sanction. I also do not think the Jews, Muslims or Protestants should tell Caesar how to operate because of their secular beliefs.

Jesus gave a few hate filled messages. People didn't like the truth back then either. Paul gave a few too. Look what happened Jesus was crucified and Paul was locked in prison. Thank God there is still a handful of preachers that have the back bone to stand up and preach the truth found in the written word of God!

Maybe you need to go back and read what God does say abou homosexuality....the Bible is very clear about God's opinion on it. And since when did it beome hating to have a few morals? People are so trying to be PC...that is why this country is the way it is. The Bible says numerous imes everything is permissable but not beneficial.

Let's face facts, Homosexual men have a disorder that causes them to wish they were females. And vice versa for Lesbians. Lets just find a cure and be done with this mess.

you might as well get over, the Supreme Court under Obama is going to legalize same sex marriage and federal law supercedes state law. It was homosexuals that put Obama over the top in the last election. Not only will they be equal he will make them a special interest group. look forward to workiing for one soon. then again they are a person before they are anything.

This is a hypocritical view. My children recognize any thing different so should all people different stay indoors? you know fat people, skinny people, handicapped, cancer patients, ethnicities different than yours. I would say take responsibility and teach your children how to not be fearful of things different than their judgemental parents. And give them the knowledge to judge wrong from right on their own.

Who cares about gay people? If you're not gay you shouldn't care about gay issues. I don't want to see two guys kissing in public, nor a guy and a girl kissing in public. As for all you empty-headed, bigoted idiots out there bashing gay people, other races, etc., do us all a big favor and just shut the hell up. Whiners.
