Reality of Taxpaying

marriage protections are an economic arrangement between government and citizens to protect and nourish families because they stabilize an area for the political machine. There is no need to extend the economic advantages of marriage(if any) for gays until they prove they are just as stabilizing a factor in the economy (increased permanent residences, church attending, law abiding, family and child centered nuclear family participants that are not a drain on social or legal services).Marriage is economic unit, not a piece of paper. Civil unions can accomplish the same if that's all they want. Lets face it, follow the money - they want free healthcare and if we get national health there will be no need to call 2 of the same "married". It matters not what they do, the economic advantages of marriage by government were begun to "mainstream" populations to control the masses better. Those that have a different dream are fine, but why should we give them a tax deduction for it? The baseline ideal sets a standard to meet or rebel against. Rewards are for conforming - choices have consequences. We really cannot AFFORD a "whatever" society and reward everyone for everything just because they exist.

why dont 1 of the proponents of gay marriage read the Bible for a change....or any citizen of this country. Those are the laws to live by>>>not ma-made ones that are leading this country in the wrong direction and fast. This country will not continue to be Blessed by God if it keeps going against his laws.

What the "eff" does the BIBLE have to do with anything? Why not quote the Quran..they don't like gays either. Abuse and denigration of anyone based on religious beliefs and nothing else is just stupid. I happen to be against Gay marriage, and not based on moral or ethical, and most of all, religious grounds, just my own opinion. But please, the Bible?! And have you looked around the country lately? If this is blessed, I'd rather not be. And one of the largest things wrong with this country is the rise in power of the religious right. That's when all reasonableness disappeared from American politics. You can't reason with people who think they're getting their directions from God..any God. The religious right is the American version of Al Quida.

I always thought your hillbilly/ignorant hick image was an act. I just decided, after this post, that it isn't. You really are that ignorant, really are that stupid, and I sincerely hope nobody young and close to you has to deal with the issue of being homosexual. You should hang yourself...but only because you are too ignorant to justify your use of my air. What a jerk.

Yes, of course...unless perhaps I'm way too smart and way too educated to believe any of the Bible as truth instead of parable and religious dogma. You do realize, don't you, that the Bible doesn't allow for Dinosaurs? I could go on and on, but sorry, science pretty much disputes anything and everything in the Bible. However, science doesn't totally discount the existance of a God. In fact, it may even support it, unwillingly or not. The problem is, it just isn't YOUR God, the God of the Bible. The Bible makes no more or less sense than the Qoran, or any other religious tome...it's just a book, written by men.

The protections of the Constitution and cases decided by the U.S. Supreme Court thereafter make it clear that Marriage is a fundamental right and that the Federal Government has no legitimate interest in restricting it.

If you really want to understand this issue, and the bigots dont, I know, please look at a 1967 Supreme Court case call "Loving v. Virginia."

We are a Nation of Laws.

Replace the word god with Boogeyman everytime you hear it. These two imginary creatures are more similar than different.

who really cares what your imaginary god friend says. Men wrote the bible. Men created god, not the other way around.

Women are for marriage. Men are for recreation.
