    Good that you aren't doing that because I don't think you will like the results of this issue. It may be a fairly long battle, but these things usually end on the side of progress being made.

    For the same reason that everybody else gets married. They want all the rights and responsibilities inherent to making someone your life partner.

    Exactly, it still amazes me that the bigots are still trying to use the marriage license to discriminate against people they don't like. You'd think that we would have grown up over the past 130+ years.

    Well since you're not providing me with anything to argue with, how else can I respond? You said you tolerate eveyone and everything so loing as someones else personal rights are not violated. I don't believe you, but I can't prove you wrong, thus the debate stops there. If you tolerate everyone and everything, then I have no argument, if however, you are like.. Oh everyone else, then surely you have some prejudices yourself, wehtehr it be actions, behaviors, or jay walking. Like everyone else, we tolerate everything up until it reaches a point where we ourselves feel closed in. I think that's what you really meant to say, but I don't know for sure, and as a result, unless you have something more honest to discuss, I bid you a farwell on the matter.

    I'd like to take a time out for a moment to reflect on what it means to be an American. While we are either celebrating or lambasting this decision, let's not forget who we are. In other areas of the world, a discussion on gay marriage would not be possible. In fact, in the Sudan, 19 men have been sentenced to 30 lashes for acting gay.

    So, no matter which side of the fence you are on in this debate, this is still America, and, win or lose, America is still the land of the free. Gay marriage or not, there is no place like America.

    Thanks for listening. We now return to the bickering that is already in progress.

    that would surely ADVANCE the discussion, huh?
    Well, at least you are laughing at your own jokes. Don't you have better things to do like take lyrics from classic songs and re-word them to bash Obama and then post them in the entertainment forum so you can get a kick out of your own gut-busting humor?

    Some people continue to cling to their bigoted views. Prejudism unfortunately will always exist amongst the intolerant.

    The will of the people may rule so long as it does not infringe upon the rights of the individual.

    I think most of us who are against allowing any class of people defined by their sexual preference would go along with Civil Unions with full benefits but sadly this is not really about Gay Marriage or Civil Unions.........Its about "Feel Good Liberals" and a few militant Gays shoving gay rights down out throats and trying to get acceptance of the gay lifestyle the same as the straight lifestyle and that will never happen.............
