Republicans, Constitutionalists and Libertarians truly represent The America is For Businesses claim. A lot of Whites identify with them, because they still possess that dream of controlling the flow of currency. Gays threaten the flow of revenue, if they're allowed to enjoy marital rates for benefits as well as in property ownership. Imagine two men being allowed to transfer property to each other, avoiding all kinds of fees and taxation. Get married, trade property, divorce and settle. Tax Loophole out of this world.
The laws would never be capable of keeping up. Laws in America prohibit fathers from marrying daughters to keep them from passing financial legacies without being subject to taxation. Of course, someone had done it. Laws don't get created as a result of someone being a genius, they are always done as a reaction.
Laws limit choice and sometimes, those laws are abided by for a decent length of time. The longer they're abided by, the less checking or enforcing the government does. Separation of Church and State applies to a taxation law as well as restricting the government from taken over the State. If they're not paying taxes, then their influence should not be respected but how do you keep the church member from invading the government, changing the laws or the substance of what America is or isn't? A very fatal flaw in our system.
We all know that Catholicism doesn't sit on the same side as Protestants. Protestants = protesting against the Catholic State. Or Mormonism, an amendment to the King James Version of the Bible. Electing Obama caused an overwhelming amount of reckless voting in the next few elections. Some Whites have been so negative, harnessed so much hatred and openly expressed so much racial pride and prejudice that there was no way they could begin to trust a minority at the helm of an already sinking ship.
Because they regard Thomas Jefferson's ideologies as their source of reason is my only contention with the lot of them. Hamilton was clearly the more intelligent of the two; Jefferson ran the country according to Hamilton's principles. Afterwards, attempting to practice his own theories in his personal life, dying destitute and bankrupt. But Republicans really want to implement his thoughts of how the government can be run into the ground, frightening, to say the least.
I'm not for nor against gays but it's their right to embark upon the pursuit of happiness. How their journey ends is for them to enjoy or simply to have the opportunity to discover. As for, segregation, discrimination and oppression, we already know how those paths end.

I have no problems with gays marrying, i actually think the state should only recognize civil unions in everyone, since people want to use their own personal religious beliefs to with hold civil rights to a group of people, seperation of church and state
gay marriage is not a civil right anymore than marrying your toilet seat. Check yourselves before you wreck yourselves. A dreaded dis-ease awaits mentally challenged heathens.

You are a friend to satan when you ignore what God has said about alternative life-styles. Being non-commital is just like saying I'm with guys all the way. You have no moral backbone.

The former cheerleading coach of USA ALLSTARS was convicted today and sentenced to 20 years. I hope the owners of this outfit take more care when hiring staff to work with innocent children.

Any topic always has to have the Bible sprinkled on it. Cant you give your own opinions without bringing religion into it? Religion has no place in my lifestyle, or anyone else in the LGBT community. These people that have been married 2,3,4 times want to dictate whether it is proper for gays to get married? How about figuring out your own life before prying into ours!

Licking on someones private parts is like being an animal. Who in their right mind would want to lick someones azzze. It is nasty, un-healthy and even sickening to talk about. What is someones mindset that would do a terrible thing like that. Please explain it to me??I don't understand all that sniffing and licking of private parts.
