Soon, Minnesota couples won't have to drive down I-35 to express their commitments. Are you ready Minnesota? You can't stop civil rights progress.

Nothing is "civil" about the issue.

It is strictly sexual Vs religious.

Unless of course you are promoting "civil union" which the gay activists have already taken a pass on.

As far as "stopping" anything in this venue, should it go to referendum, I believe your in for a surprise. IMO the general populace is tired of having their noses rubbed in other peoples sexuality.(pun intended)

Like most American's you're completely clueless.
Were womens rights or African American's rights put up to popular vote?
No.
If they had been, their rights never would have been.
What the hell makes you think you have ANY right to vote on my rights/liberties.
As far as YOUR noses being rubbed in.
LOL
Try watching some tv.
Count how many hetero images you see vs how many gay images you see.
WHO'S nose is being rubbed in?

Yeah, they're a strange lot down there in Ioway. "Larry, do you take Daryl and Daryl to be your lawfully-wedded same-sex husbandwives?" "I do." etc. etc. "Then in the power invested in me by the Unitarian Church of Anything Goes, I now pronounce you Men and Men and Wives and Wives and Men an Wives and Wives and Men, as you see fit. You may now do what you do."

Funny how your mind went to sex. It's more like love vs religion which seems to sound a bit strange unless you have been paying attention to the religious right for the last 200+ years.

How very typical.

I only have a right to an opinion, if it Agrees with yours..........correct?

So, Einstein, with your vast powers of observation, and using my post as datum, answer a few questions for us Okay?

I'm betting that from your shallow point in the gene pool, that you can not get a single one of them correct.

1, What is my gender?

2, What are my sexual proclivities?

3, What is my stance on Gay Marriage?

Three SIMPLE questions, for that simple mind of yours.

Have at it Richard Cranium.

Look it's your mind and you can have your mind go where ever it pleases but it's rather telling.

So instead of debating the issue you dance around it and resort to the usual topix play ground name calling.
And you insult my intelligence?
LOL.
Um.......ok.

But to answer your questions......
1. Your gender? Don't care.
2. Your sexual proclivities? Once again, don't care.
3. Your stance?
You gave a few hints. Gay activists?
People having their noses rubbed in?
If your words were misunderstood then perhaps you should be a tad more clear about where you really stand.
But as far as your pathetic little insults.....it's 60 degrees, tell mommy and daddy to take you to the park or something.

okay, fine, but y'all better be prepared to have more than half of your now 'married' relationships end in bitter divorces and to pay half your wages in alamonies for the rest of your lives.
congrats!

Most of us would enjoy being sent to a tropical island where we would no longer be harassed by religious zelots and ignorant goofballs. How about you just give us Hawaii and we'l call it even.

Then you can back to worrying about where to put all the blacks you don't like, and how to build that wall around the boarder to keep all those Mexicans and terrorist out.

We'll try our best to uphold those strong traditions of marriage straights have set for us. Such a high bar I'm not sure if we can do it.

Fine, half of us can have Hawaii, the other half get Alaska.

I wonder how the poeple of Iowa will feel when they are turned into pillars of salt because a few In Des Moines can look at this in away that is so far reaching. It will be put to a vote and that will end it all. Just like Cali.
