    What's really repulsive is the fact that this legal brief was filed by the leader of the Republican party with the support of his party in the name of his party.

    It just highlights in bold letters the fact that we have a political party that's working to block gay Americans from having the same equal rights that straight Americans have.

    That's the Republican party.
    Working to try to force the agenda of the radical religious right on all Americans.

    We need to fight back - or they'll win.

    Well, having clearly demonstrated his lack of control of his own party, it's logical that in an attempt to grab power back, he falls back on "threat inflation". The best way to "lead" is to find a good, old-fashioned scapegoat.

    What Boehner and the GOP ignore is that this country is for all of us, including those we may not agree with. But if you acknowledge that, the GOP and the Tea Party fall to pieces.

    So sad Republicans are really going to let gay rights and other social wedge issues do them in over the next couple of generations with Obamacrats have given them such a strong hand to play economically.

    The anti-gay rhetoric coming out of the Republican party now seems to happen daily, without fail.
