    Oh please.

    Just because you define marriage the same way a religion does, it doesn't mean you're "establishing a religion." Geez.

    I repeat, what do single parents homes have to do with two parent, same sex couple homes? Do you not see how it is illogical to argue that the former has anything to do with the latter?

    Wow your still discussing this? It doesn't matter if gays can raise children or not or any other off topic items thathave been brought into this thread. What matters is this the citz. of Maine used their 1st Adm right to tell the Govn. and the rest of the elected idiots in Augusta that you don't get to tells us what Laws we can and can't have. It's "WE THE PEOPLE" who decide that.

    And in the process you tell a group of people that you care more for a percieved wrong done to you than what is actually right.

    As I said before, there is nothing wrong with Mainers choosing to vote down same sex marriage. In fact, this ultimately isn't an issue of whether or not Maine should have same sex marriage, but when Maine will have same sex marriage. Right now, Maine is not ready for it, but the demographics show that the youth overwhelmingly support same sex marriage, and so things will change in time. Time is the only relevant factor in this issue. There will come a day when Maine uses their 1st amendment right to decide for marriage equality.

    Re: Maine voters repeal gay-marriage law

    No matter what side of the issue your on you have to admit this vote in Maine, a very liberal state, is a huge setback for the few militant gays and the bleeding heart feel good liberals who are pushing it gay marriage.........

    One might say another win for the good guys..........

    Navy....you are on the losing side. The avalanche is coming....you can pretend it isn't....but as older people die off and more younger people come to voting age....the numbers are fading quickly for those on your side.
    Are you going to be prepared?

    I have known you for several years and you keep saying that yet eveery time there is a vote on gay marriage you lose......(31-0) even in Liberal states like Oregon and California you lose...........When will you wise up and realize the American people have said no to gay marriage and will continue to do so...........
