I prefer Mormon Bishop Rmoney because marriage should be between a man, a woman, and a surrogate mother, preferably with a contract containing an abortion clause. Ryan gives him Catholic legitimacy.

Protect religious freedom!

You aren't making much sense, either.

You believe that marriage and additional security for hardworking tax-paying American families and American children is an anti-American plot?

When do you folks come from? I mean, really?

We are sorry our president failed to protect you and properly honor your service and your memory by flying out to Vegas for a party after news of your horrendous deaths.
Your service and patriotism will be missed by all good Americans even though ignored by our heartless president and his cronies.

Are you using this forum to honor those who were senselessly
murdered, or simply to foolishly bash the President? I think the latter. After all, one certainly puts his or her life in
jeopardy when serving their country in these hellholes. Those
neanderthals who committed these crimes have no reverence for life and prove it every day.

Its interesting to know why, Blacks still highly support Obama even though he's gay and is for gay rights? Even though he's made them worse off, will they still vote because of color?

Eugenics, the social movement claiming to improve the genetic features of human populations through selective breeding and sterilization,[1] based on the idea that it is possible to distinguish between superior and inferior elements of society,[2] played a significant role in the history and culture of the United States prior to its involvement in World War II.[3]

Eugenics was practiced in the United States many years before eugenics programs in Nazi Germany[4] and actually, U.S. programs provided much of the inspiration for the latter.[5][6][7] Stefan Kühl has documented the consensus between Nazi race policies and those of eugenicists in other countries, including the United States, and points out that eugenecists understood Nazi policies and measures as the realization of their goals and demands.[5]

Most popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and now generally associated with racist and nativist elements (as the movement was to some extent a reaction to a change in emigration from Europe) rather than scientific genetics, it was considered a method of preserving and improving the dominant groups in the population.

The American eugenics movement received extensive funding from various corporate foundations including the Carnegie Institution, Rockefeller Foundation, and the Harriman railroad fortune.[6] In 1906 J.H. Kellogg provided funding to help found the Race Betterment Foundation in Battle Creek, Michigan.[8] The Eugenics Records Office (ERO) was founded in Cold Spring Harbor, New York in 1911 by the renowned biologist Charles B. Davenport, using money from both the Harriman railroad fortune and the Carnegie Institution. As late as the 1920s, the ERO was one of the leading organizations in the American eugenics movement.[8][10] In years to come, the ERO collected a mass of family pedigrees and concluded that those who were unfit came from economically and socially poor backgrounds. Eugenicists such as Davenport, the psychologist Henry H. Goddard, Harry H. Laughlin, and the conservationist Madison Grant (all well respected in their time) began to lobby for various solutions to the problem of the "unfit". Davenport favored immigration restriction and sterilization as primary methods; Goddard favored segregation in his The Kallikak Family; Grant favored all of the above and more, even entertaining the idea of extermination.[11] The Eugenics Records Office later became the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
One of the methods that was commonly suggested to get rid of "inferior" populations was euthanasia. A 1911 Carnegie Institute report mentioned euthanasia as one of its recommended "solutions" to the problem of cleansing society of unfit genetic attributes. The most commonly suggested method was to set up local gas chambers. However, many in the eugenics movement did not believe that Americans were ready to implement a large-scale euthanasia program, so many doctors had to find clever ways of subtly implementing eugenic euthanasia in various medical institutions. For example, a mental institution in Lincoln, Illinois fed its incoming patients milk infected with tuberculosis (reasoning that genetically fit individuals would be resistant), resulting in 30-40% annual death rates. Other doctors practiced eugenicide through various forms of lethal neglect.[59]

In the 1930s, there was a wave of portrayals of eugenic "mercy killings" in American film, newspapers, and magazines. In 1931, the Illinois Homeopathic Medicine Association began lobbying for the right to euthanize "imbeciles" and other defectives. The Euthanasia Society of America was founded in 1938.[60]

Overall, however, euthanasia was marginalized in the U.S., motivating people to turn to forced segregation and sterilization programs as a means for keeping the "unfit" from reproducing.[61]

With all due respect, at some point Blacks will be forced to decide wheather to serve their race and the Democrat Party, or the Lord Jesus Christ. We cannot serve two masters for we will love the one and hate the other. The same goes for jews as well.

It will indeed be interesting.

Obama, Rep Lewis, Al Sharpton, the entire NAACP leadership, the Lt Gov of Maryland, 100's of black pastors all support marriage equality.

There has been a significant shift especially in the black community from 4 years ago. It may not be a majority of blacks favoring marriage equality, but it's not the 75% opposed anymore either.

I do agree Maryland will be the most interesting of the 4 ballot votes on marriage this year. Polling shows about a 54-36 spread in favor right now, but we all know the anti-gays always seem to lie to anonymous polsters about their opposition for some reason, so that means it's likely to be an EXTREMELY close vote.

Btw, why is that? Why are anti-gays afraid to tell an anonymous polster that they actually oppose marriage for same-sex couples?
