So you have no problem paying for their expensive medical bills when they get HIV too, huh?
Allowing marriage would not change who pays. It could reduce the incidence however, since it encourages fidelity and discourages promiscuity, which is the REAL reason for the spread of the disease.

That's right Pam.

According to my Bible, Homosexuality is a work of the flesh - like adultery.

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest which are these: adultery, fornication, unclean sexual acts, lasciviousness.

Unclean sex would include homosexuality, bestiality, incest and polygamy which are all contrary to the Word of GOD.

Attention all stupid people spending millions of dollars on a lost campaign.

Ohio has an amendment to the constitution that defines marriage, and was voted on by the people.

using the word MARRIAGE is 100% political.

if your desire is to form a partnership with a person not described in Ohio's marriage amendment, then seeking an Attorney to set up power of attorneys and a legal partnership is immediate solve to your issue.

Remember when screaming about rights that everybody has the same set of them......you are screaming about a right nobody else has either.

If we are determined to re-define marriage, then Divorce needs re-defined as well.

New definition of divorce is, aborting wife from your life.

Texas had the same amendment. It was ruled unconstitutional 3 weeks ago.

Besides your obviously bigoted post has absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this thread ! Are you aware that "World" wide the vast majority of AID's cases are of a heterosexual nature,see Africa ! Fact is you're to stupid to realize that you've lost the war on marriage equality and it's coming to your state soon ! You don't have to like it but you will have to live with it !
There's a reason why Queers can't donate blood! Because they're disease infested.

Tell me,
1. Is marriage a fundamental right?(This is a trick question)
2. Can fundamental rights be voted upon?
3. Can you indicate a compelling governmental interest served by limiting marriage to being between a man and a woman that would render such a restriction (and by extension the Ohio Amendment) to be Constitutional?

That is not equal protection under the law as mandated by the 14th Amendment.

Saying that everyone has equal protection to marry under the existing unconstitutional definition is asinine.

Do you support the right of someone to paint their house purple? If so, does that mean your house is purple? Tiny minds think that way. One does not have to be gay to support gay rights, one only has to be an understander of liberty.

BTW, I have an appointment to give blood on the 20th.

2nd Amendment was specifically written to end life terms of rogue judges according to our 3rd POTUS.

since when does anyone have right to re-define 2000 year old words?

hence the problem & entire point.

a thought.....when by mass majority society voted in favor of an amendment to define marriage, and radicals spit in the face of religion that formed this country, how on earth does 3% of the population think they are going to force 97% to abide?

There is a very simple way to handle your goals, but the way the minority is forcing people against their religion to accept, may well lead to serious problems where society completely shuns by force the minority.

and if the world has so dramatically changed from 10 years ago.....put it on ballet again to prove it.

And yet, you seem ill equipped to answer the simple and direct questions contained within it, or offer any form of factually supported rebuttal. The mere existence of a law does not guarantee that said law is Constitutional.

Herein lies the problem.
The US Supreme Court has held that marriage is a fundamental right on 14 Separate occasions.
http://www.afer.org/blog/video-14-supreme-cou...
The court has also held that, "One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."
http://www.law.cornell.edu/supremecourt/text/...

You need not accept gay marriage, nor need you participate in such a union. You do not have the right to use the law as an instrument to force others to live by your religious moral standards. To do so would be a violation of their free exercise of religion. One reason why you should be wary of such a tactic, for example, is that Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. What if, in the near future, a majority of Americans were Muslim? Would you care for them to be able to legally enact Sharia law?

So here's how it's going to go down.

The US Supreme court is going to declare all laws barring gays from marrying unconstitutional.
