    This is just a bump in the road. When the Massachusetts State Supreme Court ruled to legalize gay marriage in 2003 Romney & his cronies tried everything to stop it but failed. Even after gay marriages were performed they tried to get an amendment on to the ballot until June 14th, 2007 when it was finally defeated in the State House. For those who are still uncomfortable with gay marriage check out our short produced to educate & defuse the controversy. It has a way of opening closed minds & provides some sanity on the issue: http://www.OUTTAKEonline.com

    There will always be people against equality. When the Massachusetts State Supreme Court ruled to legalize gay marriage in 2003 Romney & his cronies tried everything to stop it but failed.

    After a FIFTY year engagement, we were married in Canada – and now, three years later our OWN American government, our own State of Hawaii, resolutly refuses to recognize our status. “Equality” fuels a reckless war in Iraq and Afghanistan yet our hopes for liberty, freedom and equal status are met with contemptous dismissal.

    Ward and George,
    Fifty-three years together
    and yet
    Strangers befgore the law.

    Even if this hateful intiative succeeds in November, from what I’ve read, any same-sex marriage performed prior to the election can’t be invalidated which begs the question, what happens to the status of those marriages if Obama, assuming he is the president, wants to introduce civil unions at the federal level? Does he downgrade them to second rate unions or recognize them for what they really are as indicated on their marriage licenses? Either way, its going to be a powder-keg waiting to explode whoever wins the White House. Sooner or later, he’s going to have to get his head, along with Hillary’s out of the sand and face reality, along with the rest of the democratic party by passing legislation to allow gay citizens the basic civil right to marry.

    how ca anyone ban the fact that i am spontaneously gay.
    religious brainwashed fanatics.
    Democracy is the dictatorship of 51% over 49 %
    we are only 15 % gays tops so the 85 % if they are Idiots can win.
    parallele check 60% people used to smoke they could force us to accept their smoke and kill us because they are the majority.
    so intelligent reflection should be do the gays hurt us . i think no so let us be
