    I work in hospitals...this is such a non issue. Ive NEVER seen anyone denied visitation if the guest requested it. Ever.

    Hey...why has Barrack Obama come out in favor of domestic partenrship but opposed to gay marriage?

    And no it isn't well founded speculation. Its speculation based on your own bias.
    You just pretty much proved my speculation Tex.

    I do not think he said anything about doing away with state recognized marriages.

    A village cant exactly survive for long if it constantly reorganizes village life to suit the village idiots.
    But isn't that what gay marriage supporters want?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Thats your answer? The only thing you proved is your lack of facts to support your claims.

    To claim right wingers hate homosexuals only displays your ignorance for all to see.

    It certainly explains your pre judgment of southern states.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Re: Obama: gay partners should have hospital access

    the prez, prophet like, proclaims from his mountaintop---let patients pick who will pay respects, who will pull plugs

    such leadership, such vision, such courage!

    LOL!

    but, if you whisper that his next supreme court nominee is, in fact, a lesbian...

    ooh, you're gonna get it!

    washingtonpost.com

    obama's just out-of-touch enough to do it

    he passes health care with TWO HUNDRED AND NINETEEN, enfuriating folks from florida to phoenix

    he floats AMNESTY, apparently out of the country when bush/mccain got their clocks cleaned over the issue

    and he's just san francisco enough to appoint a gay to the supremes

    party on, progressives

    rapidly over that presidential precipice

    .
    Well it does seem the right wing is willing to discriminate against gays simply for being actively gay. After all who is it that supports the FMA and wants to restrict adoption, foster parenting, etc.

    because the word marriage is religious in nature.

    Re: Obama: gay partners should have hospital access

    It is irrelevant as to whether the practice of denying gay partners visitation is widespread or not. My research shows that it is not, but it DOES happen. What this does is prevent it from happening at all. Without this mandate, this sort of thing might still not be widespread, but it STILL could occur. Now, it cannot. I see that as a good thing.

    Huh? Marriage is defined as a union between a man and a woman.....You can get married by a judge or a justice of the peace which has nothing to do with religion..........
