Judge Rules Against Anti-Gay Marriage Effort in Legal Fight Over Missouri Taxes

Apr 7, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: River Front Times

Ever since Governor Jay Nixon altered Missouri's tax code to allow legally married gay couples to file joint taxes -- a move that puts the state in line with federal rules -- anti-gay marriage advocates are pulling out every trick in the book to stop him.

I recently received a copy of the results of a questionnaire that had been sent out by our state Senator to her constituents. 47 point something were in favor of Marriage Equality (although the question had been put out as "same-sex marriage". That's a little lower than the nationwide polls I have read about recently. That is somewhat higher than I had anticipated. I truthfully believed it was closer to the high 30's for Marriage Equality. I suppose I underestimated my fellow Missourians.

No amount of time and money is a waste when it comes to fighting for what's right. Even if fighting for decency, morality, real marriage and real family does seem like a losing battle in America today. I will fight to protect my children against homosexual perversion till the day I die.

Homosexuals pose no threat to your children.....the "threat" only exists in your delusional mind.

It doesn't have any children. It's been posting for over six years with hundreds of names and locations, getting his daily fix of attention. It's either very old, with nothing to do, or locked away in an institution somewhere with internet access.

True. I have NEVER seen someone soooo fixated on negative attention every day such as 'him'.

The PROBLEM is you AREN'T fighting for decency, morality or your "SUPPOSED" real marriage and family.........you are just trying to deny Gay and Lesbian couples and their families the same rights, benefits and protections that other couples and families have......that's just being an ANTI-GAY BIGOT and NOTHING more!!!

If you want to seriously protect your children from harm.......protect them from YOURSELF because all you are doing them is showing them how to hate someone JUST for who they are!!!

I wish these ANTI-GAY folks would keep their RELIGION out of our Government!!!

I mean there is this little thing about separation of Church and State.......and if Religious Organizations DON'T want to keep their beliefs to themselves.......maybe the State should reconsider their tax-exempt status and maybe they should have to start paying taxes on their beloved Church funds!!!

You don't have any children, but it's still funny to imagine you keeling over if some child of yours came out, Cletus.

You're wasting your time and money
.
Just sit back; relax; and do nothing
.
Your decency will remain the same
.
Your morality will remain the same
.
Your marriage will remain the same
.
Your children will remain the same
.
The day you die will remain the same

We have several final scenarios to exercise if we can't achieve equality through peaceful resistance
.
*Currently churches sit unused nearly 7 days a week. We can end the religious tax exemption on churches that fail to convert to free public housing for the homeless and hungry
.
*We can criminalize superstition that can't be proven valid in a court of law
.
*We can repeal American Citizenship to any person caught with a 'bible' that has 'homosexual' printed anywhere between its covers
.
*When a person fails to ascend to the heavens when he says he will; we will require him/her to wear an aluminum hat with a flashing beacon visible for forty cubits in broad daylight
.
for starters

Stop shoving your heterosexist, homophobic, heterosexual lifestyle choice down our throats and then we'll do the same regarding our sexual orientation, Jethro.

No more engagement announcements in the paper, no more photos of the spouse and spawn on the desk at work, no more Miss America, no more of those reality shows, no more romantic comedies.

You rube.

Why do you (gays) keep shoving it in my face everywhere I turn and then tell me to mind my own business?
I don't tell you about my sexuality.
So you put your life on hold; searched out OUR GAY/LESBIAN chat room on your computer; and then complained that WE are in your face?

There now! I posted intelligent things of importance without links. You may resume breathing
.
Over the 45,000 years of recorded history; all the air on the entire planet has been breathed by GAY and LESBIAN people several times over

So be sure to wear a gas mask so you don't 'catch the gay'

You should post links expressly when he whines you musn't. It will drive him over the edge even faster.
