    It can be frustrating trying to deal with people who aren't educated. Many people come to debate an issue whithout fully understanding the issues involved.

    What I really like about Mayor Becker is that he didn't just say that gay marriages are OK, he is performing them.

    That shows his real commitment to equal rights for all.

    Yes I'm aware of that. I would have no problem outlawing unnatural sexual practices like that, whether committed by homosexuals or heterosexuals.

    Agreed. See my response directly below this one about an uneducated person.

    Except they did not do that in NFIB v. Sebelius. They specifically went out of their way in showing how the individual mandate is not constitutional in terms of the commerce clause.

    I support no state regulation banning gay "marriage."

    So you intend on putting the government in the bedrooms of every American? Not very conservative, small government minded, are you?

    It is quite republican (and democrat) to do.
