    Some evidence to refute this:

    Maine cannot legislate religion.
    Maine cannot establish prior restraint on speech.
    Maine cannot forbid the people from peaceably assembling.
    Maine cannot infringe on the right of the people to bear arms.
    Maine cannot violate the sanctity of a man's person, paper, or property without a search warrant.
    Maine cannot quarter troops in a private citizen's home.
    Maine cannot deny her residents equal protection under the law.

    Now I understand that folks will say "well she was never actually born-gay then", and I don't necessarily disagree.

    However, since there is a good number of gays who claim to be born-that-way and then change their ways, it generates statistical data anti-gm folks can point to and validly claim "gays do change".

    My point is you need to worry about those on your side who are lying about who they are far more than you need to worry about people like Navy.

    None of this has any relevance to the issue of where the hell do people get off telling other people they can't marry the consenting adult that agrees to marry them.

    People should mind their own business. The time wasted over the debate on same-sex marriage, the diversion away from matters that will actually affect our lives, has been and will be far more damaging to the nation than if people simply minded their own damn business and left others alone.

    There are no, and I mean none, zero, zilch, nada, squat, legitimate reasons to oppose gay marriage.

    I don't like gays. That's my problem. I don't care who the hell they marry. It's not my business.

    You think popularity drives objectivity?

    You ain't her constituent, so you don't get a vote.
    You get Boxer and Feinstein


    She does a good job for Maine.

    Yes Navy....Most people cannot. There are some people who are truly bisexual who can be attracted to either.

    Now....how bout you.

    You say that people can change their orientation. Could you easily change and be attracted to men?

    Re: Maine voters repeal gay-marriage law

    By your continuous refusal to answer the question that is based on your own post we can only assume one of two things:

    1. Either you lied when you wrote that and don't actually believe it.
    2. You are easily attracted to men and could change your orientation tomorrow if you wanted to.

    Which is it Navy?

    I honestly don't know whether people can change their sexual orientation or not, I just think it is dangerous to assume people can because a few claim they have.
    No those are your words not mine............I just know that some have said they changed.........Men have married women and raise a family......I told you about the Colonel here in the Washington national Guard who after over 30 years married, with grown children, divorced her husband and took up with a Lesbian..........You can call her a liar, confused, whatever...I won't...............

    Re: Maine voters repeal gay-marriage law

    Why is the whole, "homosexuals can change" even a debate anymore? Even NARTH, the only psychological institution which pushes reparative therapy, has conceded that they can only change homosexual behavior, not homosexual attractions. Most of what reparative therapy does is target childhood trauma, and frankly it would not surprise me if some straight people were so traumatized by sexual abuse in their youth that they grew up thinking they were gay. In fact, I can't think of a single example of an "Ex gay" who didn't cite sexual abuse in their childhood.
