I hope Maggie starts boycotts of any wedding magazine that publishes ads featuring same-sex couples.

The magazine has a right to define its markt as it chooses. MANY people are turned off by homosexual 'marriage.' Some state marriage amendments passed with over 80% of the vote.

Economics is not a valid argument to justify immorality.

Your morality is flawed and incorrect, anything that opposes such vile morals as those you hold, is perfectly valid.

You queers shouldn't be shocked over this. Everything homosexuality touches, it destroys. They want to keep their business clean and pure.
then they need to move to the middle east everything is clean and pure....nothing in the U.S. is clean and pure anymore thanks to bible thumping bigots who love the idea of cramming bible crap B.S. down everyone's throat.

David Moore why don't give up the name schrade we all know its you and no state passed it with 80% of the vote and the states where it did pass was because of a bunch of lies about things that never happened in Mass.

One might suggest that it is you the theocracy forcing your junk on all of us. You being the narcissist would not notice such "radical behavior" however. Only a subversive decadent pig like you would engage in such filth and yet continue to blame spirituality. This govt, and this justice system is out to "continually allow" the United States of America to destroy ourselves, the planet, and all of its inhabitants. You included.
Bigotry ( and his sister Ignorance ) will destroy the planet before anything else .. Just check your History books ( if any ) and take a look at our polluted , nature devastated , crime-ridden environment ..

All mainstream medical and social science organizations in the US agree, being gay is a natural expression of human bonding for a minority of the population. It has always been that way, and there is no longer any reasonable or scientifically supportable excuse for prejudice and discrimination.

Removing the prohibitions on being gay will result in more gay people being open and honest about whom they love, but there is no reason to believe straight people will become gay or even bisexual.

But even if one were to believe more people would become gay, that is all the more reason to encourage committed relationships through marriage. We know marriage has a stabilizing effect on relationships.

We also know for sure, that prejudice and discrimination lead to suffering and death. Now is the time to discard the unsupportable prejudice we have been taught from childhood, and treat everyone equally under the law, as required by the constitution.

What the hell do you think I've been saying on topix for 5 years now? I rather extensively up until a year ago point one of the key intricate points in time that have led us up to this futile point in time and that is what we did to our Native brothers and sisters for one. Then it was the opening of the federal reserve bank in 1913 so don't you tell me that I need to look up any history, BOY! I find it disgusting that you would point out anything about the environment or the natural law that accompanies it for your own relationship has nothing to do with the powerful regenerative process that it commands other than your death wish upon us all.
I hereby dub thee this day and going forward as Caligula.
Thanks for the Caligula bit .. For one thing he certainly was not .. and that is , a holier-than-thou pseudo-Christian hypocrite .. Your off-topic rants hardly do the human species any honor either .. They would if your posts had anything to do with the issue at hand .. but they seldom do , unfortunately .. It's all about what YOU don't like , what other bigots don't like and what Maggie Gallagher and Anita Bryant disapprove of .. Iíll stick with Caligula and Nero , thanks ..

Having had my wedding in NY last September, I can't recall ever seeing "Weddings Unveiled" at any news stand I visited. Must be a small circulation. Oh well, they relented and saw the error of their ways. Good for equality.
