    Breaking the law, to help people, isn't helping anyone. It's a sad day in this country when the president circumvents the law to suit his agenda.

    Yes, one more step closer to recognizing the civil rights of gays!

    As I've written in the past, I dont want to be part of the generation, that when it comes to our treatment of gays, history looks back on like we look back at those that resisted civil rights for blacks and women....where 'ignorant' is the kindest thing we can say.

    Just because something is lawful doesn't mean it's morally right. It's a fine line, but I have no problem with an unjust law being circumvented, especially if authoritarian policies keep that law in place
