    Not surprised, I tend to assume everyone who is anti-gay is in fact gay. So far, time and time again, I'm proven correct.

    Just waiting on the outing of a member of the Phelps family.

    Can you answer the question I posed? Just in case, let me repeat it again: What equal protection under the law are democrats trying to give that Republicans are not?

    Clinton said that was a mistake. And I did answer the question. BTW DOMA was also a republican idea.

    By the way...you didn't answer the question. What are DEMOCRATS DOING FOR gay rights that republicans aren't?

    Regardless of whether he thinks it was a mistake or republicans backed it, BILL CLINTON signed it into law. The democrats own it.

    They are not proactively pushing for things like the FMA.

    So then your answer is that they aren't doing anything.

    Just like I thought.

    Jallman...democrats started the process to repeal DOMA, with the DOD portion finishing up at the end of this year.

    They were both at the forefront of the 2004 and 2006 anti-gay marriage initiatives used to drive religious conservatives to the polls.

    Both of them gay. Huh.

    This is true. But for the most part, Democrats aren't the ones trying to amend state Constitutions to ban gay marriage.

    Funny thing is, if Republicans would just get over the whole gay thing, they'd probably attract a lot of gay voters due to their fiscal beliefs. But as long as they're in bed with the religious right, you aren't going to win over very many gays.

    I am going to say this again: being anti-gay marriage does not make you anti-gay...

    I am about as strongly pro SSM as a person can be, but even I recognize you can be against SSM without being anti-gay. It's that type of rhetoric that ultimately is more harmfull than helpful.
