Jan 10, 2012 Full story: Free Republic 723

The issue came up when a Yahoo! News reader asked, 'Given that you oppose gay marriage, what do you want gay people to do who want to form loving, committed, long-term relationships? What is your solution?' Romney and Gingrich answered that while they support limited protections for gay and lesbian couples, both believe marriage should remain a ... (more)

So like most republicans, they only represent Americans that agree with them. No equal rights for anyone else.

More proof that republicans don't believe in the basic tenants of this nation like "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness", "liberty and justice for all" and "equal protection under the law" applies to all citizens, they rather give those rights to corporations than citizens. Despite all their flag waving they are horrible Americans.

With more and more states allowing gay marriages, the contemptible stance of MItt Romney and Newt Gingrich against such an inherent right for homosexuals should almost automatically eliminate them as viable candidates for the Presidency. Such stubborness and inflexibility would bring us back to the Dark Ages in the area of human rights. We don't need that in our national leader.

You have just as much right to marry a man as any other woman does. You don't want equal rights, you want special rights.

Marriage equality is not a special right. It is expanding and already available right. You would benefit as well as we, for your right to marriage would be expanded the same as ours. Just because you wouldn't want to take advantage of it does not mean that you do not gain expanded rights.

There is a big difference between civil rights for ethnic minorities and wanting to legitimatize perverse behaviors.

The bigotry of the anti-gay crowd here is a mental illness, they should seek treatment immediately!

If we expand the the institution of marriage to allow homosexuals to marry it would open a pandoras box, under equal rights we would have to allow people to marry animals or anything else.

Civil unions are widely recognized. Companies give medical benefits to partners and other privileges heterosexual partners receive. I do feel a certain sympathy towards homosexuals because I believe they are born that way. But where I live, if you go to the beach at night the clubs are full of gays and they are the most obnoxious, mean, intolerant group their is. Not to say there is not good gay people, I'm sure there is but the others give you guys a bad reputation. I'm sorry to say it is unnatural to have sex with the same sex. The human race would be extinct in one generation if it were not.

So, in your own twisted way, you think that obscene gay sex can be constued as the "pursuit of happiness"? As a supporter of "President Paul", you probably also think that smoking pot and snorting cocaine leads to "liberty". The founding fathers established this nation as a haven for those who love virtue and freedom, not a cesspool for perverts.

I'm really getting tired of the same old trolls trotting out the same lame arguments against marraige equality.

Luckily with 75% of the under 30 population supporting marriage equality, this will no longer be an issue in 10 years.

Apart from the many misinformed statements you have made, this is a fact you seem to be unaware of. In Michigan, it is illegal for public employers (public schools, state employers) to continue to extend medical benefits to same-sex couples. Our GOP lead government just passed that law. Luckily, state universities are exempt, or the U of Michigan would be emptying out. The governor isn't that stupid.
This means families, many with children, are losing health care benefits. That seem right to you???

You are the one talking about sex. Isn't that interesting. We're talking about marriage and families and rights. Do think maybe you have a problem???

If you want to see hypocrisy, I'm sorry, I can't help you out. However, there are many so called "christians" on these boards who froth at the mouth about hate and sex and all kinds of vile things. Look for their posts if that is what you are looking for.

No I think civil gay partners should have the right to medical benefits. Most companies in my state do provide that.

No I have the right to marry a woman, you have the same right as me, the right to legally marry a member of the opposite sex. I know Christian Judeo values mean nothing to people like you, but it was the basis of the founding of our country.

You just wrote off a whole entire mass of people claiming they refuse anybody who does not agree with them, and why, because they do not agree with you. You are Top 40 material in hypocrisy.

What you need to do is change your heading to "Love Thy Neighbor, as long as they agree with Gay Rights".

Maybe you are too blind to see it, maybe you are too stuck on yourself to believe it, but Lady you have been hoodwinked. You see the left is always telling us all we must make allowances for the Muslim beliefs, we must make allowances to this belief or that, but they never themselves offer any allowances to the Christian, he is automatically condemned, as you just again condemned millions you dont even know. Why because they disagree with those who would sell your votes to the left for this right or that right. Truth is Christians do not agree with you on Gay issues because their religion tells them so. That means they are not being hypocritical, but mearly are in disagreement with you. So you see Lady you are a Hypocrite.

Our country was founded on freedom and choice, not any one religion, no matter how much you wish it to be. See the First Amendment if you don't believe me. And, wonder of wonders, I'm a Christian and have Christian values, so they mean everything to me.
