    Ha ha ha ha haaaaaa! Its coming! Gay marriage! You can't stop change, conservatives! You'll just have to live in your America is #1 fantasy world with married gay folks, or will it be that America won't be #1 for you anymore. I guess you could move to some other really conservative country like.... Well, I can't think of any.

    Speaking of gay marriage...one of my good friends from residency, her wife just had a baby!

    Baby, mom, and mom are doing well.

    Sorry, Fraulein, but it barely lost in California. It'll be on the ballot next year, and something tells me it will pass this time.

    Again.. if this were passing of government recognition of civil unions for all couples.. I would have no problem.... the redefinition of marriage is where I have the problem

    You know what bugs me about this issue? They anti gay people are stalling.

    They have concerns but they aren't cutting to the chase. Instead, they are staying on topic with, "marriage is for a man and a woman". Ok fine, so lets just call it BEYELSIBUB and give gays every right that we as straights get.

    Access to each other in hospitals.
    PEnsion and Social security benefits
    Healthcare
    Tax breaks for couples

    I remember when this debate first started. The right wingers worried that gays would raise the cost of healthcare with their aids and whatever. Well now they get domestic partner healthcare at most companies.

    So that debate is over. Next!

    Are you worried churches will lose their tax exempt status for discrimnation? We need to assure that doesn't happen. NEXT.

    So being MARRIED is the only way that they can make decisions for each other in hospitals or share SS benefits. NEXT.

    And so the state should call all marriages CIVIL UNIONS. That's what they are to the state. To you and your church, you are married. And to gay people, they are married. Don't get caught up on a word. NEXT.

    Blacks being free was unpopular. Blacks marrying whites was unpopular. The public is wrong on this one.

    It lost in an election year where there was huge Democrat turnout. The people here don't want it.

    You people want to vote for it over and over and over again until it passes.
