Why do homosexuals thrive on deception? Why are their hearts so broken that they would rather undermind someone they disagree with than deal with their internal struggles?
It is obvious that the new "Tinkerbell" without ISP is not the other, nor is the new Rockybobby.
This 'attack' reveals the hate of the poster.
And the fact I must have said some truths that really cuts to their core.

California was the first Western state to legalize gay marriage(before it was defeated by Prop 8). What's so special about civil unions?

Prop 8 is probably going to be overturned soon.

Why is it that the only people in support of gay marriage are the gays??
It is not being hateful or prejudiced. It is about upholding the moral climate and definitions on which a country was founded, and defending ourselves against viscious homosexual activists who are constantly imposing their perverted views on the masses, while at the same time they are trying to make heterosexuals feel as if they are the ones doing wrong.
You are in error. I am straight, and support it wholeheartedly.

"IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SAN FRANCISCO DIVISION
Kristin M. Perry, et al.,
Plaintiffs,
v.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, et al.,
Defendants.
/
NO. C 09-02292 JW
ORDER DENYING DEFENDANTINTERVENORSÂ’
MOTION TO VACATE
JUDGMENT

....After considering the Oppositions to the Motion and the governing law, as discussed below,
the Court finds that neither recusal nor disqualification was required based on the asserted grounds.
The sole fact that a federal judge shares the same circumstances or personal characteristics with
other members of the general public, and that the judge could be affected by the outcome of a
proceeding in the same way that other members of the general public would be affected, is not a
basis for either recusal or disqualification under Section 455(b)(4). Further, under Section 455(a), it
is not reasonable to presume that a judge is incapable of making an impartial decision about the
constitutionality of a law, solely because, as a citizen, the judge could be affected by the
proceedings. Accordingly, the Motion to Vacate Judgment on the sole ground of Judge WalkerÂ’s
same-sex relationship is DENIED....."

Oh Yay! We the majority, were basically F'ed out of our majority vote. You can strong arm are weak Goverment-greedy, suck-ass law makers, but this only pissies off the majority who were silenced more putting a bigger divide.
I know it's possible to to squeeze Chaz BONO in a Dancing with the Stars tutu and make her win the whole sHA-BANG, BUT 98% of the people will still think she/he is a freak, just saying you force the issue, you might get crack back.

Gay Penguin couple has baby - A mommy penguin is having trouble caring for twins, so one of them is being given to a gay penguin couple. Penguin males have a natural instinct for parenting, in the wild the male penguins share the duty of incubating the un-hatched eggs with the female.
