I officially refuse to become mired in the gay marriage debate because I simply do not care what consenting adults do in the bedroom. Unless it is my bedroom, thank you very much.
I find this whole issue to be tedious and offensive. In fact, I talked about this briefly before, and I realize now how much of a non-issue this really is for me. Almost enough for me to turn off coments on this thread.
‘s okay, John. I started the war over at my joint.
Right, but since the gentleman who you view as the guy we should vote for is on the wrong side of the issue, one respects your desire to avoid tedium but wishes to point out your commonality with Democratic Presidential candidates.
The only ones I have anything with in common on this issue are Sharptopn, Kucinich, and CMB. The rest will run from this.
I can only conclude that the DNC has hacked into the RNC talking points database. Else, why am I not concerned about this? After all, since I’m a registered Republican, I must therefore be a homophobe and a bigot.
My mother is getting married (in a novel twist) in a purely religious ceremony. Legally, she won’t be married. Turns out you can do practically everything she wants done with powers of attorney, and you don’t suffer the tax penalties attendant with legal marriage. Go figure.
“The rest will run from this.”
You’re going to get two reactions from the Democratic candidates:
1) “We should have gay marriages. Either the Fed should explicitly allow them, or it should vigorously enforce the ‘full faith and credit’ clause.”
2) “I’m not going to get gay marriages through Congress, but civil unions which give the same legal protections and rights but do not have the same name are quite viable. We should do that instead, as it is a good compromise that brings people together.”
Neither of these are precisely running from the issue.
(How do I know this? I watched the HRC debate.)
i personaly think that if gay marriages are bibically wrong why would God create them to be that way?
