Perhaps we should ban marriage so the "poor behavior" of a divorce does not impact our children!? You know that whole idea of the sanctity of marriage! LOLL

Oh, the old divorce claim. Do you thing gays marrying is somehow akin to divorce or could we attempt to stick to the topic at hand? Do you think that by adding another bad idea to family law somehow makes the divorce rates change?

President "Down Low" feels right at home with the Hollywood leftist's and open homosexuals. It's the only time (except back home in Chicago) where he can let his true sexual urges out. The First Linebacker is a front for our first bi President. Watch where he goes when he is defeated this fall. He'll rush right back into the arms of his "special friend", Rahm Emmanuel.

Dear, the "cling-to-your-religion " folks (and others) continually spout "the sanctity of marriage" mantra as their reason to keep "sanctified marriage" out of the hands of gays, etc.

Our high divorce rate seems to state that the sanctity is not quite so sacred. There seems some hypocrisy on this issue.

Dear, I don't believe by allowing gays to have equal rites when it comes to marriage will change (or otherwise) the divorce rate.

We heterosexuals seem to be doing a pretty good job of keeping the divorce rate high!

Says you.... because we all know you are gay but choose to be straight, right? Just how long do you think you can hold onto that charade before you crack?

Marriage is not a bad idea. Equality is not a bad idea. Theocracies tend to be extremely destructive. If you don't want to marry someone of the same sex, then don't. If you deny rights conferred on one group of people to another group of people, you are damaging families.

You do understand that the "equality" line is just a scam. There are many restrictions on marriage and you aren't complaining about the others. Lets call it what it is and say marriage envy.

Equality is a "scam?" Whose picture do you have on your profile? That line is truly laughable.

Civil marriage is a civil right. There is no reason to deny marriage equality. None.

This is not about Gay Marriage. Everyone is missing the point!
Gays can get married ANYWHERE if someone will marry them.
What this is about is the marriage being accepted by government and others.
Even more so, this is about gay rights being shoved down our throats from grade school to our churches.
I see no difference between gay behavior and a pedophile except gays are two consenting people. In that respect, no one cares what they do except they are demanding they get their behavior accepted as normal and even taught in grade schools, churches, and they expect special recognition and rights from our government.
I could marry a pig but I would not expect a different tax rate from the government because of it.
Just one more travesty for our country!
What would you expect from obama; a man of no morals! As he said, "Why should my daughter be punished by a baby?" meaning live in promiscuity and if you end up with the "inconvenient truth" of being pregnant....just kill the baby!
Another reason our nation no longer is the great nation it once was!
THe FACTS are that most Pedophiles are heterosexual - as i assume you are,.

And this study was conducted by the homosexual community in interviews with those in their community being prosecuted for molesting young boys. When ask for sexual preference all answered heterosexual. Grouping pedophiles as being the majority as heterosexual does not differtiate between the sex of the young victims. In Muslim countrys the Young Boys Clubs are 100% frequently by adult men. They love young boys. They would overwhelmingly say that they are heterosexual, but they LOVE young males.
