    I think that while not everyone does anal, there are certainly a significant population within the straight AND the lgbt population who do. I'm not a fan. Of course, that means I don't spend a significant amount of time thinking about what other people put in their asses, like some people we all know.

    It's unfortunate that it was repealed. Eventually we'll do the right thing and either get rid of the marriage license or allow same sex marriage. Hopefully the blind and ignorant can wake up. Same sex marriage isn't the danger some may think it is. Out of control, unaccountable government is. Gay marriage is used only as a divisive issue, try to get people not to think when they vote (sadly it seems to work for Americans these days...so many uneducated people). Neither side is actually interested in anything being solved. If we resolve the gay marriage issue, it can't be used to divide and polarize.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    If that's what you choose to have...

    Like I said, if gays want to have the right to flaunt their gayness publically, they must accept the right of otheres to object to it. That's called equality.

    Re: Maine voters repeal gay-marriage law

    Battles for civil rights are marathons, not sprints. Gay marriage has only been a reality in America for 5 years. It's inane to think that the country is going to change overnight, especially considering that within that same 5 year period, 29 states passed Constitutional amendments banning gay marriage. The defeat in Maine was simply a people's veto of a statute, not an amendment like Prop 8. The legislature could easily pass a new law reinstating same sex marriage, although it is very unlikely that they will do so anytime soon. Honestly, if you are disappointed by the results in Maine then it only demonstrates that you are naive of what it means to fight a civil rights battle by wanting instantaneous results. The demographics are on the same sex marriage side, and if the proponents are patient and vigilant, then they will succeed.

    That being said, the battles in Maine and California demonstrates how effective propaganda is in this country. When people can be swayed by fear tactics like, "don't be fooled, gay marriage will be taught in schools" and "the people of Maine have had this law imposed on them by their duly elected representatives" you just know the intelligence level just isn't there yet in this country to win by reason.

    What is impressive about this is in the 31 states where gay marriage was put to a vote it was defeated.......The only states where gay marriage was approved is by activist judges..........

    No, also by legislatures.
