They'll either veto it or stand alone in the future , like a country within a country ; much like Vatican City .. So who's really dividing America .. the LGTB group or bigotry and religious fanaticism ?

He won't veto it... kentuckians are bigots
Apologies, but isn't this ill-conceived, and ignorant comment spawned from the same type of bigoted mentality that you claim "Kentuckians" to have? Please think before you speak. Our cause will never be furthered by the same type of ignorance that is so common of those we struggle against. We MUST show ourselves to be BETTER than those who oppose us.

if people want to discriminate based on there religion they should bear the burden of proof
A, that they hold active membership in a church or synagogue. B,They activity attend on a regular bases at least 3 services a month . C, that they financially (10% gross income) support there congratulation, too many people blame there religion but have none cause they think its a easy way out

Well let's see just how stupid your comment is, first, you are saying only christians should be allowed to discriminate, that's pretty bigoted of you. Second, it's their, not there. Ah hell, your entire post is just stupid.

I understand sweetie, but we still can't fight using THEIR weapon. We'll never win that way. Because, if left to it, their hate will be their undoing.

In that case, the cost won't be yours, will it? It will fall to the rest of us. Seems kinda selfish...sweetie. Not to mention there are those of us who are perfectly content being Kentuckians, or Christians, or a combination of the two.
