Your plans are to rewrite the law, the Bible, & the definition of marriage, all to satisfy gay folks yearning to feel normal. Let me guess, you're Christian also!
Equal rights for all. Why can't you comprehend that? This is a secular country not a theocracy.

White supremacists say what you said about blacks. You should be ashamed of yourself.

That story wasn't in the papers here, but, think about this; the kid had time o load the weapon and kill his own brother. Why not call out , ask who was there? Wasn't it in the afternoon . Something wrong with that story and anyway, the family is destroyed

<quoted text> Already! 8:00am & you already posting nonsense!. First off your talking about what marriage wasthousands oof years ago. The point is, we're not talking about what marriage used to be to the ancients. What has marriage or how has it been defined since America was formed because it wasn't founded as folks always say, but how was it defined? 2nd the implication that children are as well off with gays as they are with straights is total bullshit! The truth is, a child raised in a gay household is more likely to be gay, & a child raised in a straight household is more likely to be straight. All those people doing tests are doing them with a bias to push their gay agenda &, with limited time spans for limited studies. We have life as far as ones mind can travel backwards to prove my point. Question, if bring gay is normal, why don't straight kids pray to be gay & commit suicide when they realize they're not?

African Americans are evenly split on the issue of same sex marriage. Forty-two percent feel that marriage is exclusively defined as between a man and a woman; while 40% would support gay marriages having the same rights as heterosexual couples. We also asked a question about ministers who oppose homosexuality and gay marriage.

The results were evenly split:
* One in three (34%) support the ministers;
* One in three (31%) say the ministers are wrong; and
* One in three (35%) have no opinion

Guns - Sixty-seven percent (two out of three polled) favor a ban on assault weapons, while 20% oppose such a ban. This includes a majority of all age groups.

Expressing a deep concern about reaction to crime in the Black community, seventy-five percent (three out of four) believe that the Nation pays less attention to Black on Black crimes than on gun crimes against whites.

So, what did the poll, which I have chosen to entitle Black Opinions in the Age of Obama reveal? African Americans have an immense sense of pride in Barack Obama as President of the United States and he is unequivocally liked. He receives a 91% favorable rating. Seventy-two percent believe that President Obama's election has helped them while only 4% believe his election has hurt them.

Consistent with the data that shows that African Americans believe that President Obama's election has helped them, a majority of those polled - 62 percent - are optimistic about employment in the next four years.

Thirty percent (30%) of the respondents say they are doing better off financially than they were four years ago, about half say they are at least doing the same, and twenty-five percent (25%) say that "African Americans in general" are doing better while forty-four percent (44%) say they are doing about the same and twenty-one percent (21%) say they are worse off.

On race relations, tied to this feeling that the Obama presidency has been positive for African Americans fifty-three percent (53%) say that white-African American relations will improve, while only twenty-three (23%) are pessimistic.

When asked why they believed the Black unemployment rate was double that of whites. Responses include:
* Failure of the education system for minorities/African Americans (50%)
* Lack of corporate commitment to hiring minorities/African Americans (48%)
* Lack of good government policies (25%)

<quoted text>The gay issue is a funny issue. Gays claim that their behavioral choices are accepted and they manufacture bogus claims of acceptance.
However, as it sits, only 9 state allow for same sex redefining of marriages. Only one of those 9 were voted into that state.
In fact, even the SCOTUS justices said that this experiment with same sex redefining of marriage is a new thing and only as of 2001, worldwide. In most cases, it is not a good thing.
The fact is this, marriages without children and with no shared biological children have a 300% higher failure rate. Here is what is relevant, if a gay brings his/her biological child into a same sex marriage, then that means either a previous divorce or a child out of wedlock. In each case, it means that a child is torn from one of his/her parents and only a dishonest person can see that as a good thing, with all things being equal.
Gays insist they're not after special rights, just equality. They lie. They've already been given special rights. See what happens when a gay gets his ass kicked, in a fair fight, with a normal person. All the gay has to do is proclaim his gayness and the fight becomes a "hate crime", punishable under a whole set of stricter guidelines. If ten gays jumped a normal person's ass, it doesn't constitute a "hate crime" unless it can be proven, by witnesses, he was attacked 'because' he was straight. If that's not 'special rights', what is?

Headlines? I had to google to learn that the "key operations" are in the TV-Movie and Consumer Products divisions where there is some reorganizing going on. The television group is laying of 5% of it's workforce, or about 400 people. Disney's earnings are topping forecasts in spite of Millionaire being cancelled.

Disney employs nearly 200,000 in the US not including vendors.

Every segment of the economy is improving, sorry that you're disappointed that DaBammy didn't kill the country. Maybe you should read past the headlines doll.
