    Yeah -- they're free to marry outside of their sexual orientation. Super.

    Would hardly call this individual a hopeful. I'm sure people will vote for her because hate begets hate but in Oregon she's not going to get much support.
    When asked about some of the issues potentially facing voters, such as same-sex marriage, the 52-year-old business owner laid out her position.

    “I would have to say, I definitely believe that that is wrong,” she said during the four-minute videotaped interview. “I believe it’s a sin, just the same as murder’s a sin.”

    Yeah, and for a long time, marriage was between two people of the same race. And for centuries, adultery was not a sex crime but a property crime.

    Definitions change. It's just now the definition is changing to include something that a bunch of Bronze Age primitives said was a "sin."

    Too bad. This is a secular nation, and your book is not the be all and end all. Marriage is two people entering into a contract. There is no discernible reason that same-sex couples shouldn't have that ability.

    Since you're geographically challenged with Seattle, how would you know how "very blue" and "liberal" they are in Washington.

    Seattle is in fact very blue. WA is a strong blue state as well.

    Yup, just like the guy who's religion allows for polygamy can't have multiple wives. No one is stopping them from having sex or living together, it's just the legal union of marriage that does not have a definition that caters to those relationships in some areas.

    I'm all for SSM, but I'm also against the progressive hypocrisy constantly shown on the issue and the slander that those against SSM face pretty constantly.
