Well isn't that special? You liberals are the hatemongers...You are USING the gay community for your own benefit and don't give a rats a** about them for real. Its sooooooooo obvious, everyone changing their tune, its the "right thing to do" my a**...its simply political positioning and posturing and vote-getting...Gays, you are being used..wake up. Why does everyone want the government all up in their private lives?(anyone remember how Obama was against it (for the evangelical black vote) for it (gay vote obviously) against it again, then for it again...playing that fence, trying to have it all...wow.

If democrats truly support gay marriage they need to address it on a national level. Having marriage legal in one state but not another is like allowing segregation in one state but not another. When Obama said it was a states rights issue where was the outcry. Would he say the same if several states decides they want segregation. So to the gay voters I ask is this a man who really cares about you.

Opponents of same sex marriage argument is responsible procreation, however there is nothing in granting the same legal marriage rights to gay couples that denies responsible procreation.

This is exactly the problem. People are only against this on religious grounds. Religion cannot dictate public policy fortunately. Marriage is a civil arrangement. If you throw out religious reasons, there is no supportable reason for prohibiting it. If you personally want to believe it is an abomination, then don't participate in gay mariage...simple.

Don't get me wrong huck. I have no problem with gay marriage. Seems like a cut and dry civil rights issue. Gay marriage and legalizing marijuana are issues that unless addressed at the national level leave to many grey areas. I know lots of young people all pumped on the pro-legalize movement and I tell them that as long as federal law trumps state law good luck with that. Now will the supeme court do the right thing on gay marriage or kick the can down the road?

That is the last time I support Mr Warner. Encouraging perversion is sick. Polititians will corrupt themselves by pandering to sexual pervrts to get votes. Why does that not supprise me?

I'll go with flip-flopping.
All politicians are just vote h o r e s.
Look at it this way, if he flipped too early, he wouldn't be in his 2nd term.
Strategy my man, strategy.

God is in everything whether some want to realize it or not. This is the reason our country is the way it is now is because GOD is being taken out of everything.
