WHY VOTE wrote:
Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.
WHY VOTE????
Take a civics class. You don't get to vote on other peoples constitutional rights. That's why they're called rights.

Marriage isn't a right. That's why the government should have had no business in it at all. You DO have a right to be with whomever you wish and write any contract calling it whatever you wish.

Falsely trying to equate a sexual birth defect with marriage is a harmful lie.

It sets up the disabled for failure and demands everyone join in their denial.

Perry's gay comment stunner - In SF, the Texas gov raises some eyebrows by comparing homosexuality to alcoholism. The Texas Republican Party this month adopted a platform supporting access to "reparative therapy" for gays and lesbians, a widely discredited process intended to change sexual orientation. In response to an audience question about it Wednesday night, Perry said he did not know whether the therapy worked. Commonwealth Club interviewer Greg Dalton then asked him whether he believes homosexuality is a disorder. "Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that," Perry said. "I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way."

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, during a visit to CA, drew on a reference to alcoholism to explain his (GOP hillbilly) view of homosexuality.

Perry's Texas' Republican Convention on Saturday sanctioned platform language allowing Texans to seek voluntary counseling to "cure" being gay.

Maybe being a Republican is like being a Alcoholism and seek voluntary counseling to "cure" being a stupid Texas Republican.?

I'm trying to have fun here to help get over what I had to do to bring down a real life monster before it could get any further. it took months to do and I cried EVERY DAY over it 'cause it took that long to positively identify the type of person I was dealing with. i'm only on this thread because the reason he was a monster is because of the way he was treated as a child. He was treated as a retarded little girl AND molested because he was effeminate and intelligent and the family was salt-of-the-earth farmers who didn't understand and value his intelligence. He headed straight for the most vulnerable people and turned HIS abuse ON THEM. He was a PROVEN threat to the community. This story Especially applies to the gay community and same-sex marriage. THERE ARE STILL MANY HIDDEN MONSTERS LURKING IN THIS REGION OF LIFE.

I am - you can see the straight ones, because their demeanor and language give them away. many of the gay offenders are experts at modifying their behavior and speech. YOU CAN'T SEE 'EM COMING.

Ukraine accused Russia of allowing separatist rebels to bring three tanks and other military vehicles across the border into the east of the country to fight the Ukrainian army.

Evidence that Russia is sending in weapons or assisting the rebels militarily would implicate Moscow in the uprising against Kiev's pro-Western leaders, making a mockery of its denials.
