This is what upsets me besides what you have just posted. Our land line telephone bill has a "Lifeline fee" or it is also "Universal fee" which is a bill for me to pay for welfare recipients, illegal immigrants, etc. to receive free cell phones with a portion of their bills paid. I don't own a cell phone.
This is also what aggravates me is that on almost every bill which comes into our household has school taxes, with the property tax being the largest with 82% going to schools. My husband and I have never had kids in public schools. Nor do I believe in paying a majority of my taxes to schools for people who pay nothing for their children to attend schools just because they are too lazy or illegally here in America.
It is a unfair tax injected on people to pick up the debts of others who refuse to work and both parties have ignited this.
So, we are paying for free cell phones, schooling, housing, food, medical care, entertainment, etc. for people who refuse to work or cheat the gov. by working off of the books.
The only one I count on is GOD. Who else can you trust?
Ex-Judge Bridget McCafferty could be suspended indefinitely from practicing law

"For a sitting judge to engage in this conduct shakes the very core of our system of justice, a system that's built upon the integrity and honesty of the individuals who are given the privilege to serve," the appeals judges wrote.

"This case is indeed extraordinary," the appeals judges continued. "For a sitting judge to knowingly lie to FBI agents after she had unethically steered negotiations in a case to benefit her associates is a shock to our system and the rule of law."

McCafferty spent most of her sentence at a minimum-security federal prison camp in Alderson, W.Va., referred to by inmates as Camp Cupcake. She worked as a clerk in the camp’s plumbing shop and tutored some of her fellow inmates to help them obtain their high school equivalency degrees.

Same-sex marriages aren't recognized in Kentucky.

Not the same as being illegal. It's a matter of semantics, but it's always best to be accurate.

Now the question is whether or not the state will be forced to recognize.

Pedophiles demand rights like homosexuals

Part One

Just as homosexuals through the potent and unwavering crusade of Britain and the United States of America have succeeded in stampeding the United Nations to support gay rights, pedophiles have also started arguing along the same lines to have their rights guaranteed as heterosexuals and homosexuals.

According to the proponent of Pedophile’s right, their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals, a position many believe was greatly influenced by Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain and the US’ positions on gay rights, which has led the UN with no option than to also concur to gay rights.

The pedophiles have been emboldened by the recent position taken by former Archbishop of Cape Town, Desmond Tutu, who in a statement said “I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place. I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this.”

Expecting same courtesies as homosexuals, a practice Prime Minister David Cameron has bragged to ‘export’ around the World at a party he held to celebrate the passage of the Same Sex Couples Act, Act 2013, in Britain, which guarantees the right of gays; pedophiles are also using the same tactic as homosexuals to push for their rights to be recognized.

Already, renowned psychologists and psychiatrists, especially in the Western countries have started postulating theories aimed at redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined some years back that has finally been backed by law.

Many critics of gay rights prior to it being adopted by Britain, the US and now the UN, have over the years argued that it will amount to setting a precedence that will hearten pedophiles to also demand special protection as homosexuals.

They say the same strategy adopted by gay rights activist since 1973 to push for the rights which has now materialized through the backing of Britain, the US and other prominent people, pedophiles have also started moving along similar lines to have their rights guaranteed.

In the 70s, Gay right activists were backed by psychologists who postulated theories to paint a virtuous picture of the practice aimed at convincing leaders across the world to embrace the act highly regarded on the African continent as immoral and barbaric.

This point was heavily criticized in the 90s by the founder of America Mission, Linda Harvey, who was quoted to have said that the push for gay rights will open the flood gate for all manner of groups, especially pedophiles, to also join the league of right seekers.

“It’s all part of a plan to introduce sex to children at younger and younger ages to convince them that normal friendship is actually a sexual attraction,” she said

Similarly, pedophiles have also enjoyed same foundation laying treatments from psychologists to have their rights guaranteed. As a sign of paving the way for the rights of pedophiles to be recognized, the American Psychiatric Association deleted homosexuality from its list of mental disorders way back in 1973, a move that prompted a group called B4U Act to start referring to pedophiles as a “minor attracted persons.”

Well, I almost got out of here...

If we're talking about Indiana you didn't do enough research.

In Indiana it is actually a felony for a same-sex couple to even apply for a marriage license.

It's not illegal to be married, it's just illegal to petition the state of Indiana for the right to be married here.

Even worse than that, in Indiana, any member of the clergy that performs a same-sex Union and extends the blessings of the church to that union is committing a crime.

That's right, the state has decided that it can come into the church and decide who the clergy can bless and who they can't even if the blessing is seen as a spiritual act and not a legally binding marriage by those participating.

There are several denominations that perform church sanctioned same-sex unions and here in Indiana they are performing them and daring the state to try and stop them because we have this little thing called the first amendment that says it's none of the states business who they bless and who they don't.

I don't know who you think you're dealing with here, but there is nothing you can teach me about gay and lesbian rights and the law.

Hey stupid...it's not against the law!

Read your own post again.

Same-sex couples are completely free to go to another state and get legally married, Kentucky just doesn't recognize that marriage as a valid union.

In Kentucky (unlike Indiana) a minister can even perform a same-sex marriage and it is perfectly legal to do so, the state simply won't recognize it as valid.

If it was illegal, it would be a crime and it's not a crime.

This may be over your head, but trust me, same-sex marriage is not illegal in Kentucky.

10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed

1. It Is Not Marriage

Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and wellbeing of the spouses.

The promoters of same-sex “marriage” propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and women which find their complementarity in marriage. It also denies the specific primary purpose of marriage: the perpetuation of the human race and the raising of children.

Two entirely different things cannot be considered the same thing.

2. It Violates Natural Law

Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It is a relationship rooted in human nature and thus governed by natural law.

Natural law’s most elementary precept is that “good is to be done and pursued, and evil is to be avoided.” By his natural reason, man can perceive what is morally good or bad for him. Thus, he can know the end or purpose of each of his acts and how it is morally wrong to transform the means that help him accomplish an act into the act’s purpose.

Any situation which institutionalizes the circumvention of the purpose of the sexual act violates natural law and the objective norm of morality.

Being rooted in human nature, natural law is universal and immutable. It applies to the entire human race, equally. It commands and forbids consistently, everywhere and always. Saint Paul taught in the Epistle to the Romans that the natural law is inscribed on the heart of every man.(Rom. 2:14-15)

3. It Always Denies a Child Either a Father or a Mother

It is in the child’s best interests that he be raised under the influence of his natural father and mother. This rule is confirmed by the evident difficulties faced by the many children who are orphans or are raised by a single parent, a relative, or a foster parent.

The unfortunate situation of these children will be the norm for all children of a same-sex “marriage.” A child of a same-sex “marriage” will always be deprived of either his natural mother or father. He will necessarily be raised by one party who has no blood relationship with him. He will always be deprived of either a mother or a father role model.

Same-sex “marriage” ignores a child’s best interests.

4. It Validates and Promotes the Homosexual Lifestyle

In the name of the “family,” same-sex “marriage” serves to validate not only such unions but the whole homosexual lifestyle in all its bisexual and transgender variants.

Civil laws are structuring principles of man's life in society. As such, they play a very important and sometimes decisive role in influencing patterns of thought and behavior. They externally shape the life of society, but also profoundly modify everyone’s perception and evaluation of forms of behavior.

Legal recognition of same-sex “marriage” would necessarily obscure certain basic moral values, devalue traditional marriage, and weaken public morality.

5. It Turns a Moral Wrong into a Civil Right

Homosexual activists argue that same-sex “marriage” is a civil rights issue similar to the struggle for racial equality in the 1960s.

This is false.

First of all, sexual behavior and race are essentially different realities. A man and a woman wanting to marry may be different in their characteristics: one may be black, the other white; one rich, the other poor; or one tall, the other short. None of these differences are insurmountable obstacles to marriage. The two individuals are still man and woman, and thus the requirements of nature are respected.

10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed

Same-sex “marriage” opposes nature. Two individuals of the same sex, regardless of their race, wealth, stature, erudition or fame, will never be able to marry because of an insurmountable biological impossibility.

Secondly, inherited and unchangeable racial traits cannot be compared with non-genetic and changeable behavior. There is simply no analogy between the interracial marriage of a man and a woman and the “marriage” between two individuals of the same sex.

10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed

6. It Does Not Create a Family but a Naturally Sterile Union

Traditional marriage is usually so fecund that those who would frustrate its end must do violence to nature to prevent the birth of children by using contraception. It naturally tends to create families.

On the contrary, same-sex “marriage” is intrinsically sterile. If the “spouses” want a child, they must circumvent nature by costly and artificial means or employ surrogates. The natural tendency of such a union is not to create families.
Therefore, we cannot call a same-sex union marriage and give it the benefits of true marriage.

7. It Defeats the State’s Purpose of Benefiting Marriage

One of the main reasons why the State bestows numerous benefits on marriage is that by its very nature and design, marriage provides the normal conditions for a stable, affectionate, and moral atmosphere that is beneficial to the upbringing of children—all fruit of the mutual affection of the parents. This aids in perpetuating the nation and strengthening society, an evident interest of the State.

Homosexual “marriage” does not provide such conditions. Its primary purpose, objectively speaking, is the personal gratification of two individuals whose union is sterile by nature. It is not entitled, therefore, to the protection the State extends to true marriage.

10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed

8. It Imposes Its Acceptance on All Society

By legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the State becomes its official and active promoter. The State calls on public officials to officiate at the new civil ceremony, orders public schools to teach its acceptability to children, and punishes any state employee who expresses disapproval.

In the private sphere, objecting parents will see their children exposed more than ever to this new “morality,” businesses offering wedding services will be forced to provide them for same-sex unions, and rental property owners will have to agree to accept same-sex couples as tenants.

In every situation where marriage affects society, the State will expect Christians and all people of good will to betray their consciences by condoning, through silence or act, an attack on the natural order and Christian morality.

9. It Is the Cutting Edge of the Sexual Revolution

In the 1960s, society was pressured to accept all kinds of immoral sexual relationships between men and women. Today we are seeing a new sexual revolution where society is being asked to accept sodomy and same-sex “marriage.”

If homosexual “marriage” is universally accepted as the present step in sexual “freedom,” what logical arguments can be used to stop the next steps of incest, pedophilia, bestiality, and other forms of unnatural behavior? Indeed, radical elements of certain “avant garde” subcultures are already advocating such aberrations.

The railroading of same-sex “marriage” on the American people makes increasingly clear what homosexual activist Paul Varnell wrote in the Chicago Free Press:

"The gay movement, whether we acknowledge it or not, is not a civil rights movement, not even a sexual liberation movement, but a moral revolution aimed at changing people's view of homosexuality."

10. It Offends God

This is the most important reason. Whenever one violates the natural moral order established by God, one sins and offends God. Same-sex “marriage” does just this. Accordingly, anyone who professes to love God must be opposed to it.

Marriage is not the creature of any State. Rather, it was established by God in Paradise for our first parents, Adam and Eve. As we read in the Book of Genesis:“God created man in His image; in the Divine image he created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them, saying:‘Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.’”(Gen. 1:28-29)

The same was taught by Our Savior Jesus Christ:“From the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall cleave to his wife.”(Mark 10:6-7).

Genesis also teaches how God punished Sodom and Gomorrah for the sin of homosexuality:“The Lord rained down sulphurous fire upon Sodom and Gomorrah. He overthrew those cities and the whole Plain, together with the inhabitants of the cities and the produce of the soil.”(Gen. 19:24-25)
