    Oklahoma House members walk out over gay marriage vote


    More than a dozen representatives walked out of the chamber instead of voting.

    AMoonHawk said"the Oklahoma House approved a resolution without opposition Monday to reaffirm marriage as a union between a man and a woman and support the federal Defense of Marriage Act."

    That's a shame on their state. I pray for a river of tornado's to come through their state and leave it in complete shambles along with their hate.

    Fuck Oklahoma. And fuck the Supreme Court if they don't fix this.

    And so the anti-gay hate campaign by Republicans goes on and on.

    Obviously, marriage equality is already illegal in the deep-red state of Oklahoma, so this vote does nothing -- it was just to reaffirm how much Republicans hate gay people.

    The GOP has so many reasons to be proud of itself! icon_rolleyes.gif

    This guy sounds like a genius:

    "I am a Democrat, and I am not a bible thumper, nor am I a redneck. I support the Oklahoma House on this. You have to have some standards and boundaries. Do you want to allow/recognize bigamy, incest, and any other lifestyle that people can think of?
    Do you see anything wrong with incest or bigamy Toners777???"

    Nothing like being on the losing side of history.

    Yawn. How desperate.

    I think some posters secretly lust after their dogs and want to marry them.

    "Thirty-eight legislators in the Montana state House voted on Monday to keep sex between gay people illegal"

    Currently, it is a felony in Montana to be gay!

    Maybe it is time to work on laws to repeal religious freedom.

    This left me speechless. Actually allowing gay people to be felons...we're not even talking about equal rights or marriage...

    Maybe so.

    Religious freedom cannot give a Montana legislator, or anyone else, the power to withhold civil justice from another citizen.

    He can believe what he wants but that doesn't give him the freedom to vote against someone else's rights.
