    Right. To qualify for marriage there has to be a man and a woman, both a minimum age, and both consent.

    How is changing marriage to be include 2 men or 2 woman different than changing tax bracket laws or the social security benefit age?

    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

If you or anyone else want to attack Sen. Snowe by caller her something she is far from then I will go after you and I could care less if I get banned from the site. I suggest you talk to Jackalope before you make anymore post on Sen. Snowe

    Sen Snowe has one of the highest approval ratings of any sitting Senator. She represents her state very well. We don't like ideological partisans up here, we like someone who does what is in the best interests of Maine.

    She ain't a RINO, she's been the same ever since getting elected to Congress. Republicans needa lay off the litmus tests and remember Reagan's rule: you 80% friend is not your 20% enemy.

    Plus, Scorp will **** you up if you tear into Olympia, so I'd be careful

    It's not much different at all.

    What the hell are you talking about? This was a veto referendum. For the law to never be brought up again, the state would have had to pass a Constitutional amendment. You really don't understand your own government, do you? It could even be brought up on another referendum in a few years. By chance, are you trying to spread misinformation?

    Further more as I stated in this thread some post back the over all population of Maine is getting older. Maine rank in the top 10% of folks between the age's of 18-35 that are moving out of their respected State.
    Actually age isn't the main factor that is important. Education is the number one distinguishing factor when it comes to gay marriage support. Unless you are saying that Maine is getting dumber, then I doubt there is too much to be concerned about.

    Also I would like to point out one other item most of you don't know much about Maine because if you did you would have know this fact Maine is in the top 5 when it comes to Gay Friendly States this fact alone didn't help for 1 to being repealed nor did it help in Calf. It's a well know fact that both Maine and calf. our two of the Gay Friendly States in the Union and both had Gay Marriage shot down by the people's vote.
    Duh! There were only 6 states that had gay marriage. In fact, Maine was the first one to pass it by legislative vote.

    If Gay's so badly want to have this right then they are going about it the wrong way they should push for a Const. Adm and then have it voted on by the Citz. of the United States once and for all.
    There isn't the support at present. In 10 years, then maybe. The best course of action the gay rights activists could aim for is to be patient and stay the course. There may be a federal court decision for same sex marriage, but that has the potential to backfire at present into a Federal Constitutional Amendment against same sex marriage.

    Like I said, gay marriage has only existed for 5 years in this country. By comparison, interracial marriage had been outlawed in some states in this country for decades before it was repealed by the 1967 Supreme Court decision.

    I don't know that there is anything wrong with it, but that doesn't mean gay-marriage is a civil rights issue.

    Care to answer my question now or were you just trying to be cute?
