    Yes it does have an effect on my life. The acceptance of that lifestyle is simply a furthering of the destruction of morality in this nation which was started in earnest a century ago with the feminist movement.

    If your morality and values can be so easily effected by others, that's a personal issue between you and your faith. It isn't the country's job to assist you in that manner.

    Yeah, funny how there are a whole lot of people who have read those same decisions and don't have the same takeaway you do. Regardless, don't really care one way or the other as I'm on the last few turns of the wheel. My grandchildren will deal with it. And the only hope I have is that they have a country left worth repairing. I admit, that does seem a forlorn hope from time to time.

    I'm curious if your children allow you to teach hatred to your grandchildren.

    Don't be dumb. They aren't Christian in China.

    This is where he usually inserts "No, no, I'm not anti-gay I'm pro political process!".

    Rather insulting that you consider folks who don't agree with your take on things as teaching hatred. But that's part and parcel of the typical progressive, hypocritical in the extreme.

    My children are farther right than I've ever been in my life. Just about sent them into shock when I chose to support Obama in 08. But hey, they got the bonus of proving the old man wrong, and that's priceless.

    The only ones who had a different takeaway were the extreme right-wing pundits who desperately want to convince their fans that the battle isn't over. Every legitimate source had the same "takeaway" that I did. But like I said...hold onto those last embers if it make you just a little more comfortable until the final chips fall.
