An article full of contradictions because of a people full of contradictions .. I lived there long enough to know that Puertoricans practice homosexuality on a scale as large as anywhere else in the world .. And as everywhere else in the world hypocrisy is the order of the day ..

Full rights for gay Americans is inevitable ... it will apply to Puerto Rico regardless of how many people protest.

PRSC Chief Justice Denton even quoted Obama saying that we as a nation must move forward and make homosexuals equal in order to "complete the journey" started in 1776.

No ; my husband is Puertorican and , after many years , we're still going strong .. He likes it here .. We both hate anything that smacks of nationalism ; which is nothing else but " loving " your country and hating every other .. Ignoramus stuff ..

What "country" is your hubby from?

That's like saying that you're from the "country" of Cordoba or one of your country's provinces.

Your husband is an American from Puerto Rico but you met "lots" of Puerto Ricans?????

...and you're still going strong?????

while meeting some small, large, extra large...????

These two messages are as contradictory as the article itself.

You're married but at the same time sleeping around?

You don't deserve an answer .. You talk more incoherent nonsense than I've heard in a long while .. Organize your thoughts and stop spewing crap if you want to be taken seriously .. But maybe your aspirations can't match your mental powers ..

Hey...you're the one with a husband while sleeping around (left, right and sideways) and keeping measures.

At least protect him from any VD's if you love him.

Talking about incoherent behavior...

This kind of LOVE, we, Puerto Ricans can do without.

Thanks, but no thanks.

Fix your own country and then we'll talk about mine (the big, ol' USA).

Which is it, love?

You're not complaining yet in the same breath are calling us-hypocrites?

Hopefully, people like you will not be coming back to Puerto Rico (always remember, you think we're hypocrites).

Your words, not mine!

David left the USA for Argentina years ago.
