Interesting fact: States with gay marriage bans persistently have the best business climates. States with no gay marriage bans persistently have the worst business climates.......

Gay Marriage Bans May Come at a Price
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/12/business/sa...

Mr. Clinton’s message that constitutional bans on same-sex marriage are bad for business hardly seems self-evident. North Carolina is perennially ranked at or near the top of the best states in which to do business. Two of its major rivals for the top honor, Texas and Virginia, also have constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriages and civil unions, and Virginia even bans “any marriagelike contract” between unmarried persons. New York and Massachusetts, both tolerant of same-sex marriage, usually rank at or near the bottom of states in which to do business.

......Now you know why California is 49th for business, according to CEOs.

Well it really seems to be the self loathing liberals who are the ones who believe that WE owe retribution to all that our ancestors used and abused!

And it seems to be the ignorant bigots who make blanket statements about entire groups of people like you do with your vendetta against liberals. There are certain policial parties I take more issue with than others but to assume badly of every person in those parties would just be stupid. What's worse is you seem to determine that anybody who doesn't agree with you is automatically a liberal. Foolishness.

This is why every state should have same sex marriage. People spend alot on marriage. Pennsylvania is behind every other state in the Northeast. We are the only state in Northeast that does not have same sex marriage or civil unions.

And at one time we had no marriages, or civil unions or domestic partnerships, now look at how many states and countries have it. What's your point? The states you mention are only responding to this fact and fearfully trying to ward it off. It proves nothing.
It proves that just a few years ago the gay community had more support and that the tide has turned and American is sick of the perverts framing perversion down our throats....

And if the gay community as a whole does not stand up and separate themselves from the garbage they will all be town out with the garbage.....

<quoted text>I just addressed someone who opposes equality for gays and lesbians on another thread who said, "The family is...the 'first form of government'... marriage is a fundamental constitutional right & international human right precious because it comes before government and cannot be manipulated, re-defined, or ripped from its foundations....As old as Pericles humanity has noted the family as a bulwark against state tyranny.”- Fitz
I responded, "What is ironic is that we are both saying the same thing."
Gays and lesbians aren't opposing the heterosexual idea of family. We aren't asking the government to manipulate, re-define or rip it apart. As Fitz pointed out,“family” can not be re-defined.
Yet some want to manipulate, re-define it or rip apart the families we create.(Ron Paul, Santorum, Mitt Romney, Tony Perkins, NOM etc.). These groups and people don’t seem to see that not only are they trying to re-define and rip apart gays and lesbians, they are in fact attacking the families we came from and the families of those heterosexuals who support our cause.
Rand Paul mocked Obama for citing the Golden Rule in what I consider to be a very crude gay joke about gay sex.“"It did kind of bother me though that he used the justification for it in a biblical reference," Paul continued.”He said the biblical golden rule caused him to be for gay marriage. And I'm like what version of the Bible is he reading… I don't know what version he's getting it from.” He got a big laugh from the audience. They all knew he wasn’t really talking about the Golden Rule but was using it to mock oral and anal sex. We all know that heterosexuals also engage in those two things and no one bats an eye.
So now we add the Golden Rule to the terms being claimed the exclusive property of anti-gay heterosexuals; 'moral values',‘marriage’,'family’?
Well I’m not going to consent to that anymore than I will submit to the idea that Fundamentalists have a patent on the word “marriage” or that blacks are the only group who can use the term “civil rights” or that only Hispanics can use the word “Tacos”.
Who's the real tyrant here? The people who are following the Golden Rule and supporting our rights or the ones like Rand Paul and the rest of the fundamentalists who want to ignore what they preach? Another poster,‘RevKen’ referred to this “do as I say not as I do” behavior as “Institutionalized Hypocrisy”. I couldn’t phrase it any better.
Ron paul is all for gays having equal rights..........ROTFLMAO

Shortly after Willard Mitt Romney is sworn in as president, he will, in accordance with his church's policy, issue executive orders that effect the following laws:
1. The prohibition of all same-sex relationships including co-habitation, civil unions and marriage.
2. In accordance with the Mormon Scripture, Doctrine & Covenants, Section 89. All possession, sales, production and use of tobacco products will be prohibited through the nation and all territories. The same nation-wide prohibition will be applied to all alcoholic and caffeinated beverages.
3. The Celestial practice to plural marriage will be restored throughout the nation and territories and will consist of one husband and 2 or more wives.
4. And finally, the administration will revise Amendment I to the Bill of Rights to the wording that the United States recognizes only one true church on the face of this earth, the Church that, with the help of the 3 personages of the Godhead, had its authority with the help of an intelligent farm boy in Upstate New York in 1830. That Church is, of course, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon).
Help restore the United States back to its Celestial glory as a true Christian nation by VOTING MITT ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT in November!
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
And THAT'S why Romney WILL LOSE!!!
