    Though I cannot say how they apply it, it would seem to be a second statute to violate for a second charge on the same crime.

    So we cannot prosecute someone for effectively being an accessory to fraud if those committing the fraud are gay?

    Pretty much sums it up. Another sensationalist, much-to-do-about-nothing fabrication designed to whip the masses into a frenzy.

    There is a market for a source that does nothing but debunk everything like this that gains any sort of traction at all. Left or Right. The level of misinformation that people latch onto these days is staggering.

    Indiana law also makes felons out of gay couples who apply for marriage licences in protest.

    Actually, there is such a site. It's called Snopes. I don't see anything about the nonsense allegation from the OP on Snopes, however, so it must not have gained enough traction to get their attention.

    Speaking of ****ting all over religious freedom ... I thought the GOP was all about that, guess not when it comes to gays.



    Granted, not the most unbiased source in the world. However, don't you think that a religion should be free to perform a religious ceremony?
    Good for them! I applaud their efforts.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    No, its not even close. You folks keep up your one party war on women, blacks, Hispanics, gays and you win this hands down! May I say that as a Democrat, I'm delighted by your positions on these issues - especially the regressive stance taken by the House Republicans on immigration reform. If these guys were any dumber, they'd be libertarians.
