    Oh wow, progress is always good.

    Civil unions are like letting you taste the frosting, but not allowing you to have any of the cake while everyone else around you, does.

    That's a good analogy, considering wedding cake. icon_lol.gif

    Wow, Kerry now supports gay marriage, SEVEN YEARS after his own state has legalized it. What a bold, courageous stand. icon_rolleyes.gif
    This is what Democrats have to accept as leaders, because the alternative is even worse.

    Glad to hear it, just wish he had been a leader in this area instead of opting for the "safe route" at the time of his election... now adopting a more accepting
    stance since public sentiment continues to shift.

    Like I said, glad to hear it, however, hope we hear the same from others on both side of the aisle.

    Kerry is caught in a bind. He is very religious and yet progressive at the same time. He's been in the middle of these two sides for a long time.

    Remember this?

    He's not advocating for gay marriage for his own state. He's advocating the repeal of DOMA and allowing gay marriage in all states. That's a big difference.

    No, they're like letting you drink from a different drinking fountain under the pretense that it is the same as the normal drinking fountain, but then funding and laws that govern the normal drinking fountain neglect your drinking fountain and it's left dilapidated. The word "Civil Unions" will label gays into an easy to use separate group that can be used in legislature to funnel them into separate categories of civil rights and laws.

    Let me guess.... he's up for re-election in 2012 or 2014.

    Courageous!


    It's not like he ever needed the gay vote for the Senate seat. To suggest he's pandering is stupid and ignorant. What's Scott Brown's position? Case closed.
