"I'm not really well informed on this issue since it's not something i'm that interested in considering this country is going to hell, but didn't the people of California vote not to make gay marriage legal? If they're trying to overturn the will of the people then why did they vote on it in the first place? Now don't get me wrong, i'm for gay couples having all the same rights as other couples, but if a court can overturn the referendum for stuff you agree want overturned, then they can overturn stuff you don't want overturned. I dunno." - 2828---------------------We can't allow the majority to vote away the civil rights of minorities. What if they voted that all gays should be locked away in concentration camps so they can't influence young people? When I stood up in Sunday school and told them that I was for gay marriage that is what one of the men in our congregation told me. "Art we're worried about our children." They honestly believe that being gay is a choice and that homosexuals will recruit their children into being gay. And there actually are some that are so hateful of gays that they would vote to put homosexuals in concentration camps. Oh yes they would. Art>>>>>>>very courageous of you to do that art. I've had mixed feelings about the marriage thing. For yrs. civil unions have served well, albeit with added legal expenses. I've read numerous articles for and against...mostly for it and for leaving it up to the states. But it is a complex issue and whatever the Supremes do is going to open a can of worms. People are still fighting over Roe vs Wade.I've been around liberal straight friends who say all the right words and all about inclusiveness and all that but still be cool towards me as if I'm going to as Art says recruit them. I haven't met my quota yet. LOL Turn 100 of them and I get a free rainbow flag that's flown over the White House.
