    Has NYC passed a law that went so far as to curb child visitation rights for gay and lesbian parents and to ban gay and lesbian couples from adopting like Arkansas has?

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    That sounds like more interpersonal family drama than anything else.

    ****ing A. It's about time this country came out of the dark ages when dealing with homosexuality.
    I agree with this.....It is not really a problem though...All one has to do is get a power of attorney....In fact most legal difficulties gays have can be handled this was way.

    It would be very simple to handle these difficulties. State recognized gay marriage would do that.

    Even easier, Get the government out of the marriage business so that they can stop playing class/family warfare with families.
