He said he approves.
He just came out with the statement.
Wow. Way to really hang out there and give such a bold statement, Obongo.
I can't believe anybody would be fighting for the right to be miserable...to each their own!
I know! As if ramming each other in the fart-pipe isn't painful enough!
Is this an election year or something?
Actually, I wish they would ban marriage for everyone. No more marriage and nullify all existing marriages. Would save me some headaches.
Or at least give you the option to renew your marriage every 5 years or so or just part ways.
Yep, a bunch or promises about things that a Loud minority care about while the rest of the silent majority go on with their daily lives.
Nah, I want them to end marriage altogether. Just eliminate the option entirely. 5 years is still too much.
Yeah because Romney always makes bold statements. Here's a beauty...
IF two people want to get married, why do they need the State to sanction it? I'm pretty sure those extreme Mormon polygamists don't have more than one "legal" marriage and they consider themselves married.
When a gay person is asked the above question their answer is always something like, "Well, I just want our union to equal to other married couples; I want the State to recognize the legitimacy of our relationship because if the State says we're married then other people will have to recognize and respect it"
....to which I reply, "ok, so when a child-raping pedophile gets paroled, i.e., the State says he's 'ok' now, you 'recognize and respect' his rehabilitation, right?
That was one of the worst comparisons that I think i have ever seen posted online
I'm sure in his tiny mind being gay is the same as a child molester. He needs to get out more.
Really? My point (and you're free to still find it ridiculous after this clarification) is that I often hear from gay couples (I know a few) that if only the State would recognize their union, all would be well--my point is, who cares what the "State" thinks--do you follow everything else that they approve of, including criminal pardons and parole for hideous criminals? If not, why do you care if they recognize your marriage?
Well, if you're sure, there's no point in trying to convince you otherwise...
Because they want the same legal rights that straight couples get, its pretty simple.
I get that--although I'm not totally sure what "rights" they are missing out on other than the "right to pay more taxes".
Please explain to this tiny mind what legal rights gays do not enjoy by virtue of their (current) inability to be "legally" married.
Many people apparently as people get married every day.
From the "few" gay people you know, I doubt there actual answers were as boring as what you are telling us.
The State recognition for tax purposes, etc....well, does matter
I think they want the ability for their "spouse" to be able to take them off life support, and all that shit.
Personally, I think this is another example of the minority (queers make up what, 5% of the population) screaming that they want majority rule.
This article is about Obama's donors holding their $ until he finally gets off the fence and make a decision.
President Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage less than 48 hours after the Washington Post reported that prominent political donors were threatening to withhold donations over the president’s position on gay rights.
“[A]t a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama told ABC News in an interview.
Left-wing blogger Greg Sargent reported on Monday that “leading gay and progressive donors” were angry with Obama over his increasingly convoluted position on gay rights and same-sex marriage, and were refusing to donate any more money to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama Super PAC. Sargent cited Paul Yandura, a political adviser to prominent Democratic donor Jonathan Lewis, who emailed that:
A number of gay and progressive donors, unsolicited, have indicated to us that they aren’t considering requests to donate to the Obama SuperPac because of the president’s refusal to the sign the order. And those are high-dollar asks, some in the seven digits. We have heard from at least half a dozen major gay and progressive donors that they stand united with us.
The Washington Post noted on Tuesday that roughly 20 percent of Obama top campaign bundlers—who are responsible for arranging $500,000 and up—“publicly identified themselves as gay.”
Obama’s announcement fits a pattern of changing positions on major issues for what appear to be financially motivated reasons.
