Same-sex marriage: It's inevitable

Feb 12, 2012 | Posted by: Gay And Proud | Full story: www.latimes.com

With more openly gay people and strong support for same-sex unions among the young, the war is over even as the fighting continues.

Good article. Things will move faster now, but we're still looking at probably a decade or more before gays are allowed to marry in every state.

All the more reason to re-elect President Obama so he can pack the SCOTUS us equality supporters. There could be as many as 3 justices stepping down or dying in the next term- Ginsberg, Kennedy, & Scalia being the most likely candidates. Hopefully Ginsberg steps down after the end of the current term in June so Obama can replace her before the election.

The Obamanic MUST be defeated. He is Evil. PURE EVIL. He has NO respect for the U.S. Constitution, nor the RIGHTS and LIBERTIES it protects.

He is TOTALLY OPPOSED to equal marriage rights for us, and has said so publicly many times.

He is PURE EVIL.

Frank, as usual, u r a TFI. Obama has done more for gay rights then the past 10 presidents combined. What? Do u think any GOP candidate would be more gay friendly?

Again, u r a total f'n idiot.

Uhhhh... It's Frank. He doesn't listen to reason, just the voices in his head. He hates Obama and nothing we say or anything Obama could do would change that.

I live in Oro Valley, Arizona. Arisona's electoral votes (the ONLY thing that counts) in the past SIXTY (60) years have gone to the Republicans in EVERY POTUS election except once (1996).

I don't think it will matter whom I vote for.

Sure there is !

Have him renounce his Marxist-Leninist-Socialist ways, submit a balanced federal budget to congress, pay off the national debt, return the U.S. to the gold standard, and abolics the Dept. Of Commerce, the Dept. Of Education, and the Dept. Of Energy to start.

Until he does that, it's OBVIOUS he is PURE EVIL.

What nonsense!

A growing majority of states has enacted constitutional amendments preventing voter disenfranchisement on this issue.

No significant group of voters has ever approved it.

Homosexuals themselves have overwhelmingly rejected 'marriage' as an actual practice in EVERY country that allows the concocted oxymoron.

The article had one point a bit off: The anti-gay industry will remain as long as there's money to be made. And that means it will be around a long long time. Just ask ADL how long bigotry lives on. . .

Denying that the most anti-gay are in the Republican party, again?

Wow -- that was not only homophobic, but racist.

It doesn't surprise me at all. Bigots tend to be equal-opportunity offenders.

If he's "totally opposed to equal marriage rights", then why has he ordered the DOJ not to defend DOMA? Why has he called on the Congress to repeal DOMA? Why has he authorized military chaplains to marry same-sex couples on base in states where it is legal?

I don't care if you think he's the reincarnation of Hitler, Pol Pot, & Stalin; he get's my vote in 2012.

What's funny is we already HAVE all those things- except for the Barney Frank statue.

For the first time, I'm starting to believe that's true. I sure hope so, anyway.

Too right! I've *never* been about morality or religion. It's ALWAYS been about generating cash-flow for religious organizations by panicking the stupid people. As long as there are people that are ignorant enough to keep sending cash every time some Bible-thumping hate-monger (redundant, I know) screams about the horrors to come without supporting their hysteria, they'll keep screaming and depositing millions in their bank accounts.

I've often wondered what group they will target next when demonizing GLBT folks doesn't work well enough anymore. Single mothers? Divorcees? Their options are drying up around them, aren't they?
