I second the "domestic partner" thing.

I am not against homosexuals, or their relationships.

I am against public affection. No PDA brigade here, or in my domain. I am offended by that. It doesn't matter if it is a man and woman, or otherwise. You can be animals in private. You don't need to suck on your significant other's face to continue living.

That being said, I respect individuals that don't make a big fuss over their sexual preferences, or openly scream it from the fucking rafters.

I feel like the government should allow it to be like a domestic partnership.

You can makes excuses to man and the government and the courts, protest till your blue in the face. If you get your way here and now good for you, but thats not the end. We all will have to answer for our actions.
I agree, but why not let them be happy, legally while they are down here?

This is not a God issue, its just about Laws in our country.

Which on another note, I think is wrong. If given a choice, I think a child needs a mother and father. As Green pointed out, men and women are different. A natural set of parents gives a child both perspectives to learn from. After all, who wants a boy raised by 2 men running around with their hands flailing in the air shouting "ooooh ooooh oooh"?

But there are no such laws. The laws are with regard to how those 2 people should be treated with regards to any other random 2 people, just because they are "together".

so they cant be happy without being married? How have gays done it for the last 100 years? Have they all been unhappy? I dont think so, I think they just want to push for more acceptance. When I was in college I worked in Macys at Briarwood for a few years. I was so annoyed by how pushy the gay men were there. They have no boundaries, there agenda is to put it in your face (no pun) and they dont care if you like it or not.

if so, it would be illegal for more than one man to go fishing for Brown trout at a time.

I could care less, but someone should tell the gays the pursuit of happiness ends when you get married.

This is my new profile pic on FB, so far people like it. My FB wall has been about 50/50 on pink equal sign, and eaual sign with a x through it, or something similar. I really don't care either way about gay marriage, I actually kinda with the Right wasn't so much against it, as its part of what make is hated by otherwise on the edge of right and left people.

Go read a book titled "One Nation Under God" by Darryl Shankle published in 2003. You will probably retract this statement.

It is a series of quotes from the founding fathers and many other significant people from the early days of our country. It will open your eyes.

The more we remove God from society the greater the chance of God removing His hand of protection from this country.
We are turning into a Godless society.

This is the issue for me, yes I am a Christian, I do not approve of "gay marriage" but that is not my business. What I have a problem with is being forced to approve of "gay marriage" or be shouted down.
What you do in life is none of my business, but I do not have to condone what you do.
I had two good friends in high school that I found out many years later are gay. They are not associated with one another (live very differently on opposite sides of the country). One is radical the other is not. During the last reunion I hung with the non-radical friend and had nice conversation. The radical one was overtly flaunting it, making a statement. While polite to him I avoided getting into conversations the him.
I have no problem with them being gay, I just don't agree with that issue defining somebody and being forced to accept their belief or be considered "wrong".
