I'm so sorry to hear about this couple's troubles, but I'm really pleased that they were, in fact, able to legally marry and I couldn't be more happy that this judge has been the wisdom of equal rights.

Let's just hope this trend continues.

The comments section on the link is a scary meeting of "minds" ain't it. At least this site isn't THAT infested with brain damaged trolls.

Yikes!!! I've never read the comments under a Free Republic story before. What a bunch of idiots. Not a one of them has any clue about how our government works or even the slightest notion of human nature.

Crazy with a capital C!!

Well, here's the stated purpose of Free Republic:

"Free Republic is the premier online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America. And we always have fun doing it. Hoo-yah!"

In other words, they are Teabaggers (political, but maybe or maybe not the sexual kind). "Get government out of healthcare, but leave my Medicare alone" types. Tells you all you need to know about the comments on their site.

It's basically Topix without the janitors cleaning up after the loons. The only real fun to be had on the site is to toss a figurative Molotov cocktail into their little circle jerk and watch them flame out over it.

Two days ago I signed up for membership on the New Republic website and was accepted. I then posted a response pointing out the errors in their anti gay stance and unchristian like behavior based on 103 Bible verses on Obeying Authority

today I just found my privileges on their site have been revoked.

Color me prescient!

I've been through so many free republic accounts, I lost count. They usually squelch opposing voices within your first couple of days, even if you only post once or twice.

It's been pointed out I made a mistake. It's the Free Republic not the New Republic.
