    About time. I've been dismayed at what seems to be Black prejudice towards gays. Makes no sense, really. A welcome new voice.
    I agree, about time. There is no reason why legally same sex marriage should be banned. NONE.

    There are lots of things that are legal that are not morally right to Christians. The fact that my marriage (between a man and a woman) is not recognized between the catholic church and many other religions, is proof that a LEGAL marriage has no basis in religion. SO religion should not be a basis to make SSM illegal.

    do you have proof that the the majority of black americans actively participate in trying to stop equal gay rights? NOPE its something you made up

    soooooooo until you do, you "using my words" is complete BS and exposes you for a logical fallacy

    now wipe the egg off your face and let me know what part you dont get
    Wow, I directly quote you and you still try to argue that it's out of context, amazing that you won't own the fact that you have the exact logical conundrum that Charles Krauthammer pointed out in the thread I got that quote from...if all opponents of SSM are bigots, and a majority of black people oppose SSM, then the majority of black people are bigots.

    Just admit it....
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    To wit, the NAACP never approved of gay marriage until President Obama, whom they have an interest in winning because he's black, approved of it. Therefore, their view of SSM was always no because it reflected the beliefs of the people they represent, black people. Now that the candidate they want to win is in support of it, they do support it. That would be the pretense of having beliefs or principles one does not actually possess would it not?

    ...and by the way...

    Re: NAACP Backs Same-Sex Marriage

    Here comes the cliche'...but I don't know how else to say it so...........


    I have OODLES of black friends. ALL of them are for gay marriage. They know what it feels like to be discriminated against, I guess. So it comes as a surprise that others are surprised or think blacks are against gay marriage.

    now you are flat out lying and making stuff up. Who said that "opponents" of SSM are bigots????? NOT ME OR MY QUOTE lol

    if you actively participate in preventing others from having equal rights as an american you are a huge hypocrite and the possibility of you being a bigot, arrogant, illogical, irrational, prejudice and or a fool is solidly present. Also like stillballin I would love to here any logical sound reasoning why this is not true.
    weird you backed off from my actual statement and then lied and tried to change it to "opponents" ????hmmmmmm

    I wonder why you would do that?

    oh, i know because your hyperbole BS got exposed and you had to deflect quickly but nobody objective and actually reading buys it LMAO

    tell me that cool part about admitting it again???

    im still waiting for proof of your BS please back up your lie that the majority of black americans actively participate in trying to stop equal gay rights

    Ill wait

    lol haha I say again (since you can't seem to read what you wrote) I'm giving a direct quote of what you said

    maybe you shouldnt be so dishonest and use my whole quote, read it and understand it and you wont be so exposed
    I certainly didn't take what you said out of context, you are just trying to play games to pretend that you didn't mean what you said lololol

    Frankly, that doesn't mean much. Those types of eelections often only bring out the radicals, those over excited about an issue. They don't really represent a majority in any sense of the meaning of the word.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
