    They have the power to tax everything, including religious institutions, if they want.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Which is where my disagreement with the whole issue lay. I personally am not bothered by "Gay Marriage", I am however bothered by the way it's being pushed, forced.

    110% behind Civil Unions that have all the legal force of Marriage. Don't call it marriage though. Why is that so hard to compromise on? Cause it doesn't advance the proper political agenda.
    The contract is the Marriage License. Not the "Civil Union" license. So long as that is the case, you do not have the right to infringe upon another's right to contract.

    And now it's a State issued contract. Times change, try to keep up.

    I've already addressed this multiple times.
    You need to present a clear and factual argument, as to why it shouldn't be allowed.
    That is what a state constitutional amendment is it is what the people say by voting. Prop 8 was state amendment vote

    Because the Majority of American's don't wanna call it a rose. SO instead of PISSING OFF THE MAJORITY, and being utter asses about it, what's so hard about doing the right thing now? Getting those legal rights NOW, the important stuff, the things that MATTER? I care about results, and what matters.

    OH NO!!! Have to make a ****ing POLITICAL STATEMENT and shove it in everyone's faces.

    "WHAT?? You don't like Gay Marriage?? YOU BIGOT!! HA HA WATCH US RAM IT THROUGH THE COURTS YOU KNUCKLE DRAGGING DUMBASSES!!!"

    That's the issue and why I do NOT back Gay Marriage.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
