You mean all the scary predictions of the end of the world didn't come true? What a suprise! Of now they say we won't see the negative effects for possibly generations, but we're supposed to trust them on this and discriminate against gays because the catholic church would NEVER lie.

Isn't it ironic we're supposed to trust the same organization that allowed their priests & bishops to molest little boys for decades. Oh yeah, they're experts on taking care of families.

What could a homosexual get for there mother to even remotely get them to forgive them for breaking her heart. If your gay you ruined every mothers day your mother will ever have I hope your happy and proud of your self. Your mom would be better off in the ground than having a homosexual for a kid.
My son is gay and I am very proud of him and I look forward to every mother's day with him. He certainly doesn't break my heart, quite the opposite, he and his lover have filled it with joy and happiness.

Her son is not going to burn in hell. I really wish you religious zealots would leave us gays alone. We have done nothing to you but all you do is spew hatred,which is not very Christian.

Civil marriage is a function of government, not God.

Issuing marriage licenses for a fee and recording it in the county courthouse is what this is about.
It allows Judges and Justices of the Peace to perform marriages without discriminating against the chosen few.

The new law does not affect Holy Matrimony as perfomed by Churches in any way, shape, or form.

And now, about your unbecoming demeanor; Repeat aloud the message of Jesus: it reads like this:

"They'll know we are Christians by our Unconditional Love"

You are a real a**hole!! You have no respect for anyone. How dare you tell Stella that her son is going to hell? Would like it if someone said that about one of your children?

You're funny. You probably shouldn't be allowed to drive or own guns, but you're funny.

Yet marriage equality in MA _was_ the end of the talibangelicals' world.(Or at least a good start of its end; five states and counting.)

Gods...you speak with so much hatred and malice.

Dude, chill out. If you do not like gay marrage, then do not have gay sex, do not watch gay porn, and turn away from gay people kissing.

Though i find that the most avoid homophobes are the ones who are gay themselves. hmm...

Gay marriage only passed because the public was not allowed to vote on the issue. Don't try twisting the facts.

What truth is that? what he personally believes?

Who gave him the right for him to push what he believes as if it was undeniable factual truth?

It's personal. Again i say, if you do not like anything that is gay, do not marry another dude, do not have gay sex, do not watch gay porn, and look away when you see gay people. Simple as that.

But again, the most avid homophobes seem to always come out as gay sooner or later. Makes me wonder about you all.

That does not explain "manly" gay dudes and "effiminate" straight dudes.

You make no sense.

NOT a good idea. Thomas Beatie tried testosterone and ended up being the world's first pregnant man

I could say I am proud to have a responsible son, a loving son, a good looking son, a caring son, a helpful son. I could say I am proud of my son who graduated from college, my son who has been there for his brother and sister, my son who loves his granny. My son who has helped me weather hard times, my son who has worked hard and chipped in for the benefit of the family. Could say I am proud of my son who is smart, my son who is 5'10', my son who is blue eyed and blonde haired. My son who left a bouquet of flowers for me to find on the table when I got home from work this morning. My son who is GAY. Yes, I am very proud of him.. not because of any one of these things. I am proud of him because of the kind of person he is.. and because he is.. MY SON.

Stella and I, and many other mothers and fathers, will always love and be proud of our children.

Happy Mothers' Day, Stella!!

And a different kind of happy MOTHER*******s' day to you fred.
