    walker has a better chance if he can keep social issues out of his platform, thats just the way its going to be in 2016
    He's going to have to include social issues if he wants the Evangelical Christian vote, and he probably will since he is a Baptist. That will bring in the Evangelicals, who refused to vote for a Mormon so stayed home from the polls.

    God defined marriage when he made Adam and Eve. He sure didn't make Adam and Steve.

    It's not Adam and Steve, it's Adam and STEVEN.

    I used to work with a guy named Bill, but he preferred everyone address him as William. Everybody called him Bill, instead.

    Do you feel all your personal beliefs and convictions should be written into the Constitution?

    From what I gather Cruz's bill is focused on states rights. If states stop issuing marriage licenses, what then?

    Same books that told you this also told you it was a crime to wear clothing made of two different materials, and a crime to plant two different crops next to each other.

    As for Adam and Eve, ok, so that first marriage was between a man and a woman. They had some kids. Sweet. Now, about those grandchildren...

    Have you checked the tags on your clothes lately?

    A state can refuse to issue marriage licenses to anyone, this satisfies the 14th amendment.

    I highly encourage any of these backwards-ass states to try that out and see how the "will of the people" responds.

    Which of these were Adam and Eve?
