    I noticed you haven't answered a single question I asked you. Too much knowledge?

    You ask the wrong questions.

    What Ikari said. Of course they participated. They cast votes for a minority position or a minority candidate. All valid votes = the whole set of votes to be divied up.

    To the degree in which government has entangled essential programs and tax credits into the contract; it has some place.

    In the architecture of marriage from previous having been focused more on reproduction; at the time perhaps. I still wouldn't have cared even back in the day if related people got "married". They have to deal with the consequences, not me. Does government have business in it? Currently I guess you could make the argument in that those with genetic disease are more likely to cost more money to the system and society at large. But I'm not usually one who agrees in general with those sorts of arguments.

    Should I care?

    If I had control, sure why not? Consenting adults, I don't care.

    No, I think it is applicable. In that it demonstrates that things which could historically be staunchly adhered to opinions and actions can change with education, maturity, and acceptance.

    Read some of her earlier distasteful comments.

    With some people its a generational thing. Others just don't know any gay people so it's fear of the unknown.

    But the ugliness of Elena's earlier comments were old school bigotry and ignorance.

    Apparently, gays try to 'rub' their gayness in her face. Interesting choice of words for a homophobe.

    Do I think people should be getting preferential treatment because of their colour, age, sexual habits, length of their noses, "fullness" of their figures, religious believes, etc.? No!

    That is your opinion and there are nut cakes on both side of the issue.........If you don't believe me go to a gay pride parade sometime................
