    He makes up his own definition of what the amendment means. I don't think he cares about separation of church and state.

    His own paper (when properly linked) demonstrated he did not understand the case that declared teacher led prayer to be unconstitutional.

It is offensive to certain religions to fund homosexuality, therefore the Government shouldn't be involved. Otherwise Religions shouldn't have restirctions on when they should speak.
    It is offensive to my religion that you be allowed to post on this forum. Perhaps you can explain to me why it is legal for you to post on this forum anyway? How come my religion doesn't count? Don't you respect my religion? If you aren't going to respect my religion, why should I respect yours?

    Our actions in Islamic countries are offensive to some Muslims. Therefore the government shouldn't be involved in those countries? Keeping pork legal goes against the religion of some Jews. So pork should be illegal?

    Bottom line: why does your religion decide the law?

    These people are soldiers, and they, just like every other soldier, earn their benefits.

    Saying that gays should get paid less is insanely hateful.
    Nobody said they should get paid less. I said they shouldn't get marriage benefits for their "partners"

    Separation of church and state is a made up fantasy and blown way out of proportion.

    You do realize just because they say it doesn't mean it is right?

    These actions prove the same sex marriage movement is largely about money. As I have always suspected.

    It's about having the United States government treat same-sex marriage the same as heterosexual marriage. This includes Federal benefits, joint tax returns, etc. It also includes various rules about automatic inheritance, child custody, medical power of attorney, and so on.

    If the Federal government took those benefits away from you but not from other people, you'd be demanding those benefits back. How would you react to me then saying that you're just in it for the money?

    There's something else I want to point out here.

    These are men and women who stepped up and volunteered to serve our country. They are potentially putting their lives in danger. And here you are, griping about homosexual military personnel being granted equal benefits to straight people..

    To our troops, on behalf of everyone in America who appreciates our military personnel of every race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation, don't listen to guys like Drake here. Their hatred has blinded them to what is really important. Don't hate them back, pity them.
