"The conservative movement, to which I subscribe, has as one of its basic tenets the belief that government should stay out of people’s private lives. Government governs best when it governs least - and stays out of the impossible task of legislating morality. But legislating someone’s version of morality is exactly what we do by perpetuating discrimination against gays."

Barry Goldwater is a libertarian not a Republican.

It is sweetie, it's not my fault you choose to ignore reality. But I guess with the way it laughs at you it's not surprising.

Um...youre the one that ignores reality. Repeat after me, youre a boy, not a gurl...you should be attracted to women, not men.

Reality check!!

I'm not a boy sweetie, I'm a man and far more of one and a far better one than you could ever hope to be. You should have chosen a different path in life than complete flocking idiot, seriously.

This shows how far the Republican party has moved from one that promotes freedom and equality to one that restricts it.

As I'm sure you have heard, being gay is neither a choice, nor a lifestyle. You are among those who demonstrate why no one would choose to be gay if it were a choice. The choice is between living as an authentic human, or trying to live a life of lies. While you wish to use the law to harm others, no one is trying to use the law to harm you, despite your hate bating.

Your demeaning pejorative terminology and irrational fear of social destruction, fail to provide any legitimate governmental interest sufficient for denial of equal treatment as required by the constitution.

I'm sorry, but a hamburger flipper like yourself shouldn't go around telling anyone what they should do or how they should live their life.

That's like taking advice on how to be a saint from the world's most wanted criminal.

And again, your demeaning pejorative terminology, even without the usual irrational fear of social destruction, fails to provide any legitimate governmental interest sufficient for denial of equal treatment as required by the constitution.

Irrational prejudice is all you have to justify refusing to treat others as you would yourself under the law.

"Both heterosexual behavior and homosexual behavior are normal aspects of human sexuality. Both have been documented in many different cultures and historical eras. Despite the persistence of stereotypes that portray lesbian, gay, and bisexual people as disturbed, several decades of research and clinical experience have led all mainstream medical and mental health organizations in this country to conclude that these orientations represent normal forms of human experience. Lesbian, gay, and bisexual relationships are normal forms of human bonding." (APA)

Nice try, that's not what the argument is...no one is saying it will harm opposite sex marriages.

Your pejorative terminology fails to refute the information agreed upon by every mainstream medical and mental health organization in the country.

The legal marriage of two gay persons is not treated equally to the exact same marriage from the same jurisdiction, of two straight people.

DOMA requires discrimination, in violation of the 5th amendment.
