    Yes, she will have to. She already did so in the appeal on the stay order from the Log Cabin Republicans case.

    Honestly, I have no doubt that this will get filibustered into oblivion and any republican senator who breaks ranks will catch a lot of flack.

    Homosexuality is not a normal condition, no more than speaking with a lisp is a normal condition. However, both behaviors should be tolerated and most certainly not penalized, as neither are detrimental to society at large.

    Well that is an entertaining point of view.

    It's very big of you to tolerate those with speech impediments. Very big.

    It's not about me, personally! It's about society and how it behaves towards others. It's about minority groups and how they are received by society at large. It's about how we all interact together, in the most healthful and helpful manner possible without anyone losing rights or privileges as a result.

    I have a cousin who speaks with a severe lisp. While he is both intelligent, talkative, and surprisingly articulate, some words he attempts to say, just sound comical. It's all we as family can do, NOT to laugh!

    I know, it both sounds stupid and is stupid, but that's just how the human species is packaged.

    Sorry!

    But homosexuality isn't a negative condition... Or something that should only be tolerated. It should be accepted, and I don't see any reason why it shouldn't.

    Are you suggesting that the human species is packaged to regard open affection between homosexuals as disturbing?
