That is unless you are an illegal alien then all bets are off. You can do whatever you want. It comes with the free healthcare, education and retirement packages that are soon to be offered.

Why are gays ALWAYS being used for political reasons! I mean it so old, I wouldn't be surprised if someone gets very tired and DOES SOMETHING. I mean really does something to put a stop to his shananigans! They hate the gay community, but then they turn right around and use them for their political "catapulting". Haves we not LEARNED by now that LIARS, are bringing this whole coutry down. Maybe that's Dubya's "secret intentionality". He's German...you know!
actually he's a direct line descendant from the windsors... english not german.

Is he going to use Dick Cheneys' daughter for a poster child to promote the constitutional ban?

One thing that really amazes me. Why would anyone want to enter an agreement where the laywers are perched to clean you out.

This latest attack on a single group in society meets some of the criteria identified by Dr. Lawrence Briggs (Free Inquiry, Spring 2003) as defining characteristics of the totalitarian society.#2 is the disdain for the recognition of human rights.#3 is the identification of scapegoats as a unifying cause.#5 is rampant sexism in which traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, homosexuality and abortion are suppressed. The state assumes the role of ultimate guardian of the family institution.#8 is the intermingling of religion and government as a tool to manipulate public opinion.

I have already written my congressman asking that he consider the possibility of impeachment. It is a waste to write to Senator Santorum since he is a big part of the problem. However, unless Mr. Casey commits mayhem between now and November, he will be a bad memory only...

Election Time! Election Time!

Need Constitutional Amendments to Ban Gay Marriage, Protect the American Flag from being burned by Americans, to put prayer back in the Class room, put God back in the Class room because he was kick out on his ass by Liberals, to protect the Bibles in west Virginia and Arkansas from being collected by Federal Troops, to protect the 10 commandment, aw well it ELECTION TIME----so just laugh like hell while Bush and Frist pull the wool over the right wing Christians with the assistance of their religious leaders--little faith base money does wonders.

Just Karl Roves attempt to get Peoples eye off all the scandals breaking in Iraq. His right wing evangelical base is so easy to direct. They have so many hot button issues that just drive all other thoughts out of their heads. And he just presses them, when he needs them to look away and create controversy elsewhere.

Even his right-wing bible thumping base are ticked at him. He never mentions this wedge issue until he needs the bible belt to come out and vote. He is using them and they know it. This is politics at it's disgusting lowest. Desperation! Bushwhacked hits another low.

It does not have a chance of passing, it is just fodder for the Republican Right so they won't Nader the Republicans with an independent candidate,sit home and not vote or God forbid stop sending money.

Stay home and not vote? Sure let 50% of the people decide on what government you have, Just dont complain to me because you dont like it. Your not voteing tells everyone including the polititions that you dont care. Let them pass the amendment, it wont go in law until it passes the majority of the states, let it go up for debate in each legislature, what are you afraid of? it is better to do it this way, than let a bunch of renegade judges with delusions of godhood decide for us with no debate.

THIS IS TRULY THE MOST CLEVER COMMENT. I hope late night comedy uses it. PERFECT for demonstrating the need to leave GAYS alone, and let all live and let live. Enough already. Republicans need to find another whipping post. How about working on saving our military from further burn-out for capital causes for the richest in the name of patriotism. Focus on something that needs to be done for a change.

Another example of Social issues taking priorty over real issues. This is being done to gain the social conservatives support, Bush's fundamental base. I agree with the others, who have said this is a whipping boy issue for the Republicans. Anti-Gay, that's what they are.
Why can't we live and let live? If I am gay and it is a sin, who will God hold accountible? We need to get back to minding our own business.

Thanks for the info Lusen! I know he's no where close to Windsor, however, he may have a lot of "wind" coming out of his ass, ever since he "wormed" himself into the Oval (or Oral if you hate Clinton...LOL) Office! BTW...I like Clinton still!
Prince Charles is in direct lineage with Russian Artistocracy, namely the Romanovs.
What woman could resist Clinton???? He is to die for.....
Warmed himself into the oval office???? Stole his way into the oval office. NEVER forget Bush won by 1 vote, only ONE vote. It was 5 to 4 in the surprime court.
I am not an american, just a dane, but I love your country, and respect it. But I tend to get mad of misinformation. That's why I responded to a false fact re Bush and the British Royalty. Sorry for the intrution..........
