Poll shows Pennsylvanians backing same-sex marriage

Sep 1, 2011 Full story: The Times-Tribune 105

Half of Pennsylvanians favor a constitutional amendment to legalize same-sex marriage, and an even larger percentage think the state should at least allow civil unions, according to a Franklin & Marshall College poll unveiled Wednesday.

Heh heh, sure. Receiving play government benefits, bestowing play property and pension inheritance rights, with play spousal insurance coverage, play spousal privilege in court, play power of attorney, play end-of-life decisions, play joint ownership of land, homes, cars....

Not to mention play love, play committment, play support, play care, play respect, play trust, play communication...

Play is fun. Especially when it's exactly like the real thing in every way. You should try it. Your play compassion and play understanding are seriously lacking.

Which last longer than the average "straight marriage". How ironic.

I hope Santorum stays in the race long enough to actually lose in his own home state!

Missouri is the "Show Me" state, but maybe Pennsylvania will become the "Show You" state -- it would be so nice to finally shut down that tired NOM argument that no state has approved same-sex marriage by popular vote, even though it pains me to think this is still just a high school-mentality popularity contest.

Britney Spears' 55 hour marriage to Jason Alexander was a play marriage... ooops, sorry. The state said that was a legal marriage.

They are still play marriages. A marriage is for one woman and one man. Next it will be two men and two women or 4 women getting married or 4 men getting married. When does it stop?

When everyone who wants to get married CAN get married. What's it to you?

Worse still, it could be one man and many women, all at the same time. Or a man and two sisters. Or a man and his former mother-in-law. Oh, wait. All that happened back in the Old Testament days, didn't it?

Come to think of it, there were American Indian tribes that considered gay men to be highly developed, special beings and allowed them to marry their tribesmen.

Apparently, the question is not, "When does it stop?", but rather, "When do YOU stop?" Try as you may, history never has complied with your narrow definition of a "real marriage", and most emphatically, never will ...

Native Americans weren't fundie christians, so I'm sure they are only "play people" as far as the bigot fedup is concerned!

So it's all just up to YOU then? YOU personally make all the decisions for everyone? Can we get your home address so we know where to bring our marriage applications? Or do you have an office location that's convenient for the entire nation? Did ABC have to get your express, written permission before airing The Bachelor & The Bachelorette? Do you have to approve all divorces, as well? Do you review everyone on a case-by-case basis? This is quite a big job you've taken on!

I think you might just have a case of play authority, and play entitlement.

This is a crock of crap. Put it on the ballet and watch it get squashed like every other time. It seems they confuse support with tolerance.

We're really going to savor the day when marriage equality finally does get a majority vote in a statewide referendum, which could be as soon as 2012 (Washington or Maine or Oregon).

I wonder what the anti-gays will say then?

Go ahead AbeL, give us a preview.......
