    Can we shelve the Anti-Gay Marriage debate until after the election? I don't just mean here, I mean in real life and in the media.

    What we are doing is falling into a trap set by the progs. ANYTHING that can keep the discussion away from obama and on us.

    Fighting over this is silly. There are way more important things to discuss than gay marriage, no matter how you feel about it, it will be a useless issue unless we can get rid of obama. Who cares if gays can or can't get married if obama is re-elected because there won't be anything left of our republic. Who wants to live in a socialistic America where Gays cannot get married?

    We need to keep the focus on obama and his failed presidency, so far he's been successful in distracting everyone with one pointless issue after another.

    As someone pointed out on the other thread, not allowing gays to be married is a political issue because of the inheritance, income tax, etc. ramifications.

    Civil rights are one of the most important issues in our country, in good times and bad.

    The economy will recover and the US will be great again....but making laws to take away rights and liberties is about as un-American as it gets.

    So in reality, the Republicans need to reflect on that fact.

    UnConservative brothers and sisters, I understand why you want to shelve the gay marriage debate. It is too difficult to be on the losing side of an issue, so better to put on the blinders and get back to issues that really matter. Like Mrs. Obama's vacations and Joe Biden's gaffes.

    These are things you can win!

    This is nothing that a civil union wont solve.... this as much of a non issue as it gets.

    If it was soooooo important why did Obama wait till now? :eusa_hand:

    I call BULLSHIT.
