    ANyone (right or left) that things homosexuality is wrong and doesnt deserve redefining marital and family discriptions? Bill Clinton when he signed the Defense of Marriage act? Barrack Obama when he stated his support for domestic partnership but opposition to gay marriage? Any NUMBER of liberals that dont support gay marriage? For starters?

    Point out who in this thread called people homophobes or bigots, NP. I've read the entire thread and haven't seen it. Please stop making stuff up.

    This is yet another appeasement act.

    Yes, they were still denied in many hospitals. NJ ain't Alabama.

    It's the right thing to do. Enough said about that. People visiting loved ones in hospitals don't care what you think about the politics of it, and shouldn't.

    Not at all. If everyone says that this doesn't happen, and it shouldn't happen, this makes sure of that. Folks who disagree with this are just looking for something to bitch about.

    Which hospitals? All of them?

    If it is a non-issue, so what? Why does it matter then?

    The state governments are who recognize marriages. You don't get a federal marriage certificate.


    But isn't that what gay marriage supporters want?
    No, they are stating that a state recognize right or privilege given to one group cannot be denied to another group simply because a majority believes it should be.
