...get this...because her living-in-sin boyfriend is denied health benefits. If her Boyfriend were a 'girl'friend, the benefits could NOT be denied. Yeah - Remember when we conservatives preached 'slippery-slope' to homophiles about giving people special rights based on their behaviour? We were f'ing RIGHT. Special Rights for Homosexuals = idiotic legislature. I'm bothered by how Liberals seem hell-bent on the destruction of our society in the (false) name of 'equality'. It's not equality. It's forcing the majority to accept/condone the behavior of the minority.
