    32 states have outlawed gay marriage. Who cares what you all think. Who cares what Obama thinks. He does whatever for votes and sheeple follow him. It will be a loooong time if ever, if sodomy/marriage was legal in this country. It's up to states and most voters say no.

    @Zzz Top: Just because I'm young doesn't mean I don't have valid opinions and the right to express them. If I took the conservative side of the issue you wouldn't call into question my youth, would you? If I went with the old fashioned route route and said that "marriage should only be for a man and a woman, blah blah blah- if I thought like that, you wouldn't have even brought up my age, would you? Age has nothing to do with it. Guess what? There are adults years older than me who have the same views. My grandmother will be 81 years old this year, and she supports gay rights as well. And no, she's not gay herself. She was married to my grandfather for 59 years. You can't disregard someone's opinion based on whether or not they're under or over 30. Sorry.

    @ Blaize-- It was commonplace years ago to tell a youngster who was starting out - tell them to shut up and don't say a word- watch and learn. I thought that was rude to say the least. Especially when directed at me. Until you can live life. Until you have some battle scars until you realize you misread the people you defended only THEN can you make a true assessment about what is going on outside your door.

    Would you rather spend YOUR tax dollars on their foster care or an orphanage and have you seen the social
    Outcome of an unloved child? If the foster child turns out bad as they often do you will then be paying for there
    Legal costs and cost of incarceration 50,000 per year. Gay couples don't require a blue eyed blond male and they
    Tend to love more deeply and nurture more attentively. Coming from a retired pediatrician I know.

    Does anyone feel the way I do that if a homosexual couple wants to raise an otherwise unwanted child
    It will be better loved and nurtured by a couple no matter what sexual preference than not loved at all?

    @Blaize, don't forget you must be male and gay. Your age has to be called into question......anything to make your comments less valid. The insecurities of others causes them to pick apart any advisory. Weak of mind.

    Not supporting gay marriage does not have to be based on religion. You are aSSuming that, Blaise. It's not the same caliber as a man and woman. Let gays call it a union and continue to do so. Yes, I bet there are sickos who are self-proclaimed "married" to their sister, or dog or car or whatever else. Granted, I think there are people who don't want to see this country turn to Sodom... But there are agnostics who don't agree w gays marrying. Gays enjoy all the same rights as married: health insurance, tax benefits and they can adopt. Who fucking cares?! U idiots fester on this bs and ignore real issues of our time.

    @NOT: There? See?

    I prefer to use photos of other things and people though. I'll be changing it again soon.
