A recent national poll indicated that LESS THAN 5% of Americans are gay or bi-sexual when asked the question. IT IS ABSURD that we are wasting precious time and energy on appeasing a small part of tail WAGGING THE DOG on this topic when our very existence is in peril!
Let me start by saying, I am a God fearing woman... This however has nothing to do with that!
Strange to think that there's such a large controversy over "freedom" - My question to those of you who feel homosexuality/marriage is wrong... Would you not throw stones at someone who feels slavery is acceptable, Would you not throw stones at someone who threatens womens rights? Its no different than the limitations you are suggesting we continue to put on these couples. Sounds outrageous to think of segregation in the year 2012 and if you step back in the mirror you may realize you are absolutely suggesting something as absurd - shame on you. In America, people have pushed the envelope time and time again with the hopes of equality... If you can differentiate between equality in the color of our skin, gender - why can't you accept the difference between how/who someone loves. Seems pretty insignificant to me!
My advice to you: Grow up and acknowledge that life is everchanging. In the year 2012 our greatest issues are far from 'Gay Rights' - Open your eyes!
In Atlanta they have the "Gay Yellow Pages."
This is to show support and saftey for gays shopping expeirence.
What about us straight yellow pages?
I have had to run into some gays that were just as rude to me because I didn't fit the bill.
Everyone wants to yell, Gay RIghts.... What about Straight rights in not having to hear this crap!?
The President can give his OPINION on anything - that does not make it a law and it certainly does not supercede an existing law in a state that bans same sex marriages. It doesn't matter what you want to hear or what you want the law to be ... until voters change existing laws or pass new ones nothing changes.
This is really becoming a seriously irritating development - the social equivalent of then obnoxious 12 year old brat in the backseet endlessly droning "are we there yet". Just STFU already!!
Those of you who spew hate toward gay people are the very ones who hide behind "God" as the reason for your disgustng behavior. You are the WORST examples of showing love and tolerance. The Bible was written by MEN, back when superstition and ill-placed logic were the norm. Get off your pulpit and keep your nose out of other people's lives. You are a disgrace to Christianity.
Ronie725, your right to a point .God is the last voice. However, he does say, "it is an abomination". Also that we should not live in constant unrepentant sin. What most people need to understand is that the bulk of these business' couldn't care less about them, and more so for the politicians. They are just votes and $ for an agenda. People, live your lives-don't let someone else own ya, and let me live mine. Which means leave your liberal, commie ideas at home. I and my family spent to much time defending the "Republic" to want to suffer any fools.
To the person who didn't complete his/her research on the Hardwick case:
Bowers v. Hardwick, where it upheld a challenged Georgia statute and did not find a constitutional protection of sexual privacy.
Lawrence explicitly overruled Bowers, holding that it had viewed the liberty interest too narrowly. The majority held that intimate consensual sexual conduct was part of the liberty protected by substantive due process under the Fourteenth Amendment. Lawrence invalidated similar laws throughout the United States that criminalized sodomy between consenting adults acting in private, whatever the sex of the participants.
The case attracted much public attention, and a large number of amici curiae ("friends of the court") briefs were filed. Its outcome was celebrated by gay rights advocates, who hoped that further legal advances might result as a consequence.

[BRIEFING.COM] The S&P 500 ended this week with a bang, roaring to a new all-time high on the back of stronger-than-expected economic data, influential leadership, and an ongoing appreciation for the Fed's monetary policy support.
The bullish bias was evident in premarket action as the S&P futures pointed to a higher start without the benefit of any definitive news catalyst. Stocks indeed benefited from a blast of buying interest at the opening bell on this ... More
