Why tell ANYONE who they can or can not love? Straight couples, think about it, what if someone told you that it was ILLEGAL for you to marry the woman/man that you loved? How would you feel ? PUT YOURSELF IN SOMEONE ELSES SHOE FOR A DAY AND STOP BEING SO IGNORANT! Also, WHAT HAPPENED TO SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE? Almost 100% of anti-gay movements are RELIGIOUSLY MOTIVATED! GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD PEOPLE, just because the gay couple down the street might be allowed to get legally married won't affect your lives WHATSOEVER.

Equality for all Americans is an inalienably right and should not be open for debate or vote. There is absolutely no threat to heterosexual relationships if consenting adults of any sexual orientation choose to commit to one another via marriage. It is a shameful that this issue is used by political and religious leaders to push their bigoted agendas.
All Americans should denounce this or any other form of discrimination.

Marriage is designed between one man and one woman. Having gays go after this just stains the whole concept.

My domestic partner and I have been living quite happily and successfully in Boynton Beach for many years. Just like John E McGovern and his partner Ed. John is running for PBC School Board & he will be bringing the "family values" I want to see in our community to the education system. Rigid Catholic morality is as outdated as "Creationism". Don't let the community leaders of the future miss the opportunity to learn about our world without bias. Vote for John for District 4.

I did not realize this post was being made; I do not disagree with it. As an educator I believe we need to equip people with the language skills needed to define, describe and then appropriate for themselves what they can understand about the many aspects of diversity in our society. Religious bias, which accounts for so many divisions in our society, needs to be addressed. Religion, which is supposed to be a unifying force among people, should assist, not thwart, understanding issues of personal identity as they are experienced by each and every person as they mature and live their life in as meaningful way as they can. Life is first and foremost about relationships. Harmony is borne out of acceptance and recognition of how we can relate. "A world without bias" .... yes, that is an educational goal worth pursuing. I am happy to be involved in that effort.

I plan to leave my wife for another man and plan to marry him. My wife is morbidly obese and doesnt care about herself anymore. My new man takes care of himself.

Oh, so John McGovern not only is anti-Christian values, but he is no longer in Boynton Beach? Where is Lake City? All I ever read about him is that he wants to shut down the Boynton Beach CRA. He isn't interested in the School Board. He just wants to see his name in the paper. He probably isn't even gay. He's just using that to get people to talk about him. Shameless narcissist!

Marriage is between a man and a woman.
That is how God made us. It is unnatural to be sexually active with the same sex.
It puts the natural order of things in a tail spin.

You are one very stupid person. Move on to a topic about which you know something factual.

Try telling this to a fundamentalist who thinks homosexuality is an abomination.

I don't see what the hell the big deal is. I mean so what if you don't support it? Are you physically involved in the marriage, no. So, then why do you care so much. Marriage or not, gay people exist. They're going to be seen in public, they're gonna live together, and chances are they're still going to raise children as their own. Love knows no gender.

Close minded people need to get out of here with their bullshit.

GAY PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE TOO.

Actually,
it isn't unnatural. It happens in nature all the time between animals of all kind.
Natural order of things in a tail spin? What order, you must be speaking about the order of same sex marriage. Oh because 52% of SAME SEX MARRIAGE ends in divorce. That order, how silly of me.

Educate your self before you speak, or you run the very high risk of sounding ignorant.

you can't tell people who to love and marriage is for people who love each other, so why does it matter if it's two guys or two girls or a man and a women.?
