    Re: New Hampshire to vote on gay marriage repeal

    I dont know why people cant just be more like Clinton and Obama when it comes to gay marriage...
    Obama on Gay Marriage: "I Struggle With This" - YouTube

    "Wrestling with it" of course means I oppose it, but if it becomes politically expedient...well...I'll definitely reconsider.

    Funny how he isnt labelled a bigot and homophobe...

    So even if a state gives full legal benefits to a civil union for SSM it is not recognized on a federal level.

    Again, seperate but equal is not equal.
    Agreed. Additionally, This is not a States Right issue because of the tax break a married couple gets on the Federal Income Tax.

    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    We don't have to tolerate intolerance. You are attempting to restrict the rights of others based on sex. That is intolerance.

    We are. And there are many ways to change it and many methods to try to get it changed.

    You mean like the indoctrination that took place that taught children that being in interracial relationships was a suitable alternate lifestyle?

    That will change as soon as DOMA is repealed or knocked down by the SCOTUS. In order to have civil unions, of any type, recognized, completely different rules will need to be written, not just an act repealed.

    I think you will find that the SCOTUS will defeat your cause by a 5-4 vote with Kennedy giving the deciding vote...
