Beautiful ! How can anyone hate on this ? And no scripture/morals talk allowed. This is CIVIL, take your hate and judgement to your church/synagogue/temple/whatev er and be happy we live in a country that protects your right to hate and these fellas right to love and marry.

whatever, just don't force this perversion on my children in the school system, on the streets or anywhere.

Sex, was meant to be a private thing between two people, not to be advertised and publicly displayed like this.

Keep it out of my Constitution and leave the rest of us alone.

Fact is, marriage is between the two who love one another and GOD, the Government never should have been allowed to become involved, NEVER.

All it is, is another way to PERMIT us to live "OUR" lives, under the eye of a government that in truth, should be torn down and started up again the way it was meant to be,

What two people do in their bedroom, I don't want to know about, especially this sickness, but yes, they, like everyone else should be left alone to live their lives, without any GOV.org involvement.

Well said. Most Americans are tired of small fringe groups like gays advertising their sexuality all over the place and demanding politicians re-write the laws for them. Loud liberals will be disappointed to find out that Obama is no friend to gays either.

My suggestion if you're gay and want to get married: Find a state where you can do it legally, and do it now. Don't expect every state to change their laws to accomodate your small minority.

Hey Eintstein, if you're white - you'll be in the minority in a few years. So get used to it.

And if you can't see changes when they're happening - like the first black preident - that's ok. Fourtunately these sort of changes, like civil rights etc - will happen with or without you.

I love change when it is good, and criticize it when it is bad.

I love the fact that America elected it's first black President, but hate the fact that they did it at the expense of the country.

Obama is a big spender who is clueless on the economy and foreign policy. He got elected mainly because the media wanted to make sure the first black President was Democratic, even though he is unqualified.

"Re-write laws?"
Let me direct your attention to section 1. of the 14th amendment to the United States Constitution, which states:
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

And, by the way, this IS a state where Gays can legally marry!
Perhaps you'd be more comfortable somewhere else where they are more sympathetic toward your hateful attitudes.

Obama's budget is revenue neutral. The GOP pres is the one who ran up the surplus and debt - even Republicans are mad at Bush for that. McCain gave no indication that he would do anything different. More intent on cutting taxes on the rich than balancing the budget. How did the media fail when Bush got elected twice? You make no sense.
