    ART_DECO saidYou go girl! The next generation speaking out.

    As an aside, I met Chelsea a few times, when her father was the Arkansas Governor. One time was on a flight into Little Rock, the State capitol. Interestingly, I was flying First Class, while she, mom & dad were all in 3-across coach. We actually didn't all meet until we deplaned at the terminal.

    I also met her when I was presenting her father with a plaque from the Department of Defense, for his support of reemployment rights for state National Guardsmen. Honestly she was rather homely then, and awkward as kids of famous parents can be, but I'm glad she's blossomed into her own now. I hope to hear more of her in the future.


    Ohhhhhh Art. Do you ever comment on a topic without making your self the focus of the comment? Hahaha

    It will only be a matter of time before this so called "Pastor" suffers the same fate as so many others. He will be disgraced. Then we can all stand back and say "I told you so".

    Its a shame that so many gays only support free speech when it benefits them.

    How did anyone find out?

    Chelsea Clinton is basically unwatchable. There is no more wooden and lackluster person on television... It's somewhat shocking she's Bill's daughter.

    She's starting her political career. The Clintons only do things that are good for the Clintons.

    I love how all of these gay haters, finally once backed up into a corner where they know they are losing, try to pull the "call it civil unions then with the equivalent benefits but don't use the word marriage"...Oh really? Those same fuckers wouldn't even back civil unions until now that they know they are on the sinking ship! Maybe they should have thought about looking somewhat consistent in their ideology a while ago.

    "He said of gay marriage earlier this year: 'To me, the Bible is very clear that sex is for a man and a woman in marriage only..."

    I wish, when guys like him make these assertions, someone would ask them, where does the Bible say this?

    Rick Warren's position about gays has been known for many years. Its baffling that so many gays support Obama who used Warren to give the invocation at the presidential inauguration in January 2009. Warren is a right wing nut who Obama elevated to national prominence.

    Perhaps Chelsea should confront her parents instead of Rick Warren. Hilliary has been responsible for doling out billions in taxpayer dollars to countries which execute gays. Bill signed DOMA into law and Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

    It is important to understand the details of what happened vs the alternative choices, and not just little bits here and there. That makes it easy to understand.

    Rick Warren has a big influence on most of Orange County. Don't ever think his southern baptist views will change.

    I guess I should have voted for McCain in 2008, the same man who threw a hissy fit at the repeal of DADT. The man who said that the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy is "working," and announced that it was a "sad day" when the policy was repealed.

    Oh yes, I should have voted for him icon_rolleyes.gif What a champion!

    Hillary does not have singular control over Washington's purse strings and DADT was a PROGRESSIVE bill.

    Clinton Derangement Syndrome is epidemic in America, but facts matter.

    It's funny when people like Rick Warren throw up their arms in defense and claim "I'm not homophobic, I'm not afraid of gay people", I wish someone would explain to them that in fact they are afraid.
    They're afraid that the acceptance of gays/marriage equality undermines their religious beliefs. That if they are wrong about this one thing, then what else are they wrong about?
