Yea, I remember he was at the first Republican debate and all the incumbents were asked by him if they would support an amendment to the Constitution to allow him ot run for President. They all said NO!!! That is what it would take is an amendment to the Constitution for anyone that was not a natural born US citizen to run/become President. I agree, there is no way anyone that is not born here should be allowed to hold Presidential office. Truthfully, as I stated above, I dont think that they should be allowed to hold any public office at all.
I know it is a long time, 2010 isnt it, until Arnie gets voted out...hopefully!? But yes, gay marriage is coming. It is inevitable. As pnggrad79 said, the Fundie Christians can have their cerimonies and choose not to marry a gay couple. That is their right under the separation of church and state. You know they will be crying "separation...separation" when gay marriages do come to pass. I see it more and more. The crap is just getting so deep I need to get longer waders.
I had a discussion with my aunt, a devout fundie, about prayer in schools. She was under the misguided notion that kids cannot pray in school. I showed her proof that isnt the way the courts put it. They just said that it cannot be lead or organized by the school or any of its faculty. If the kids wanted to pray in school, get together with others and pray then they still had that right. She kept saying, "but Dr Dobson said..." I about wanted to scream. I showed her about the hate crimes bill also. She was spouting the same things that she hears Dobson say. I printed off the bill for her and asked her to show me where it said that free speech would be considered a hate crime. She read through it and was dumbfounded. I asked her to read Section 8, she didnt say anything. Then I asked her if she ever really listened to what Dobson and his like said. Do they ever point out the facts of exactly what they are talking about or do they just make statements? That is one thing I have been noticing. They make all these statements but offer nothing to back it up. The hate crimes bill is a perfect example. They say that ministers can be prosecuted for saying preaching against homosexuality. But they stop there. They dont site specifics of the bill that say that or that may be interpreted that way. They just make the statements and millions of people believe it. Are we that stupid?
Sorry I got off on a tangents there. I just has that on my mind and needed to vent a little. But yes, I feel for you CA. If it wasnt for him trying to make nice so he might get the chance to become President some day I think he would pass the bill when it came across his desk. He is just so much more worried about himself than the people that he serves. Oh wait, well then he is a perfect politician, self serving and non-committal. Thanks for listening anyway ya'll
Love to you all,
True marriage is about love! Without love all you have is a ceremony.
