    No argument from me.

    I know there are some gay churches and I'd hate to see overly fundamentalist people try to ban them from marrying people.

    Good for Arnold and I laugh at anybody that thinks CHurches will be forced to marry gays. Thats silly and simply not true.

    Churches are ALREADY PROTECTED and why would gay marriage change that? Churches already discriminate how they see fit and choose not to marry STRAIGHT couples if they see fit not to

    sorry churches are safe and its just dramatics and an appeal to emotion that smart people dont buy

    Granted private property already protects them but Vermont still felt they had to put in a clause in their Gay Marriage bill just to cut assholes off at the pass.

    if they felt the need to REINFORCE the churches protection good for them but it probably didnt come from the threat if us losing the 1st amendment but from the drama queens, fear mongers and just to shut people up with their conspiracy theories and applies to emotion.

    I say if they added it, its good work but its just another lock on a already protected issue.

    So Schwarzenegger believes in imposing his morals on everyone and ignoring the voters? Great.

    In this case the voters are wrong, and are imposing THIER morals on everyone.

    Religious institutions can choose NOT to recognize it for all i care. But a government which is suppose to not discriminate, they must recognize it.

    It's called liberty, thought you guys liked that?

    Absolutely right. Well stated.

    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.

    You don't have to be gay, nor do you have to marry a person of the same sex.

    Your morals will be held in tact.

    if you want to be inaccurate and play word games then yes LMAO
    if you want to live in reality then no, he isnt "imposing" anything

    what he wants if for YOU and your NEIGHBOR to both get treated equally and have the same rights and BOTH be able to practice the morals you want, what you want is people do only do what YOU say and to only follow YOUR morals.

    But lets say he was a judge and made a ruling that wouldnt be imposing either he would simply be fulfilling his constitutional mandated roll of safeguarding the peoples liberty.

    in n 1948, about 90% of American Adults opposed interracial marriage when the Supreme Court of California legalized it, and California became the first state that allowed loving, committed interracial couples to marry.

    and then not until 1967(19 years later), about 72% were opposed to interracial marriage. This was the year when the U.S. Supreme Court was legalized interracial marriage everywhere in the U.S.

    and then not until 1991 (24 years later), those adults opposed to interracial marriage became a minority for the first time

    Damn judges fulfilling their constitutional mandated roll of safeguarding the peoples liberty its always wrong when they do that even though thats how our system works to protect itself <snicker><sarcasm>
