Some of the nation's top companies such as Google, CBS, Starbucks and Nike have joined forces in a legal brief asking a federal court to force the federal government to recognize gay "marriage." The friend-of-the-court brief asks the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a 2010 lower court ruling that struck down part of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. In that ruling, Judge Joseph L. Tauro said the federal government must recognize gay "marriages" from such states as Massachusetts, Vermont and the other four states where it's legal.

You called me an American.
Then are you a foreigner?
And if so you can go and$%^$ yourself.

Hey cretin, I called you an "American mullah."
Don't know what a "mullah" is, I'll wager. Hint: Not the same as your wife's "mullet." It's different, you hillbilly scum.

All of the gays need to get off this planet, they caused the last great fire/brimstone destruction.
This is utterly disgusting how they want to force their nasty habits on us. We will not bend to their demands or allow gov't to dictate what we should allow.

You may remain an ignorant, bigoted talibangelical pos, but you may not discriminate in public anymore.
And we can laugh at you homophobic rubes.

Will you be also boycotting all the gay friendly computer companies and products? I HOPE! Do some checking, tool, ALL the computer companies are VERY gay friendly. Also are all airlines, all car companies, most major stores and almost anything you can look up.
So, come on, hypocrite. Either boycott everything, or shut it.

Thanks for clearing that up.
Why is it that when we get on a computer we act so rude to each other?

Because sexually disordered, talibangelical bigot-trash must be informed they are being relegated to the status of the KKK even as it is happening, that's why.
As for the bigotry and discrimination you spew on and off line - golden rule, Cletus. You bigots are the ones who soon won't be tolerated.

You seem a little too mad over this stuff.
I never called you anything as bad as you proport me to say.
I have no problem with two people of the same sex enjoying a warm loving relationship.
But flanting that relationship before the public to gain unwanted attention to the issue is a sorry sight indeed and only inflames those who discriminate aginst it.

You are bigoted filth.
If you want sexual orientation kept private then you can impose that absurd, lying, deranged standard on str8 people - that's what equality means, Jethro.
No more Miss America pageant, high school proms, engagement announcements in the papers, romantic comedies.
Of course when there's laws forbidding equality in marriage, adoption, employment, military service, et. al., people are going to organize against that, i.e., your bigotry.
Gawd damn you crakkkers get dumber every day. Now stfu, bigot. Your the discarded trash of educated society now.

I am a Negro-tairian and proud of it!
