    Hello there everyone, time once again for my daily post. I found this on youtube and felt like sharing it with the rest of you all. I thought his words were touching because they were right from his heart. I hope you all enjoyed listening to him speak as much as I did.

    "The woman at my polling place asked me do I believe in equality for gay and lesbian people. I was pretty suprised to be asked a question like that. It made no sense to me. Finally I asked her: what do you think I fought for in Omaha Beach?"

    He has a gay son? That makes all the difference. No child is raised gay. They just are.

    Right wingers will smear this guy. You watch.

    I'm a right winger and I appreciate the clip and the man's point of view and the fact that he was willing to get up and say so.

    I too believe in equality for all Americans. I do, however, believe that marriage should be the realm of the church. That is my personal opinion. Therefore, I believe that the state should treat everyone equal and get out of the marriage business... civil unions for all, marriages for the religious and if the church chooses to marry homosexuals then that is the decision of the church or religious institution.

    I do have one question though about the question he was asked. Does that belong at a polling place? What if he had said, "Hell no"?

    we are voting right now on domestic partnership in washington state, which would also allow senior citizens to enter into a domestic partnership which is how I think it will be passed. No one wants to tell grandma and her new boyfriend what they can and cannot do.

    So sad this man has a perverted homo for a son.

    Thankfully, he has 3 other normal sons who can give him grandkids.

    Let me get this. A soldier, while on Omaha beach, is thinking about protecting the rights of his unborn gay kid? Buddies dying around him left and right and he thinks about this? Glad he wasn't thinking about nuking North Korea we'd have a big mess.
