Hey perverts -- I have a suggestion for you rump rangers!

If you want to make yourselves feel more "normal", how about BEING normal instead of trying to warp normality into your own perverted version of reality and then forcing it down the throats of the Normal 98%!

Guess what, Nazi? We are gaining our civil rights, and there isn't a damn thing you can do to stop it. I don't need your seal of approval to live my life exactly the way I want to live it. Bigots like YOU are the problem.

From the article:
"the one relationship that transcends the ages and is critical for the very survival of human kind, is the unique relationship between one man and one woman".

Though it is true that sperm, egg and a womb MUST come together in order to create life........it does not mean that Gays and Lesbians can not create life.....even if they happen to use modern medicine to do so, like any infertile/sterile heterosexual couple must do!!!

Gays and Lesbians having the right to marry the person of their choosing regardless of gender....WILL NOT STOP OPPOSITE-SEX COUPLES FROM MARRYING, OR PROCREATING!!!

By the way, Gays and Lesbians face daily in similar ways that Blacks did and the common thread between the two minority groups struggles have been DISCRIMINATION pure and simple!!!

Pretty HUGE insult to mention gays and what black people have suffered in this country. I mean the brutality alone.....And the issue is not weather opposite-sex couples will still be able to procreate. Same sex marriage IS NOT a civil right and should not be.

Well, I'm not insulting the Black Community or their Civil Rights fight, but they DON'T have sole position of the word and the similarity has to do with DISCRIMINATION, not who had it worse.......ANY HARMFUL FORM OF DISCRIMINATION IS WRONG.......and ANYONE who has been killed, maimed or tortured strictly for the color of their skin or who they are is why DISCRIMINATION is wrong!!!

You are entitled to your opinion and views.......but as an American Citizen......I'm entitled to the same rights, benefits and privileges that ANY OTHER LEGALLY MARRIED COUPLE IS!!!

You're wrong. Some courts in the U.S. HAVE RULED THAT IT IS A CIVIL RIGHT. Which is why some states have marriage equality now.

Today, black people can marry the adult, non-related consenting person of their choice.

Well, unless they also happen to be gay ...

Ask black Americans who are gay - they've seen all sides of the argument.

Hey, you can even ask Jesse Jackson.

Seeing as I have Black friends.......they do agree with me, but then it doesn't matter if most Blacks disagree with me.......that would be their right!!!
