    The author says this:

    "While I am in favor of it [Gay marriage] as a political issue, if asked to make a moral judgement I would be much more on the fence."

    This is my current problem with the liberal mindset. Too often i here liberals state that they support us but still don't know how they feel about the morality of homosexuality.

    I call bull!

    Give me a rational argument (which means something not written by a self proclaimed "god") that shows we are immoral. Give me a break. Apply the same sentence to any ethnic group (we don't even have to go with race) and it is clearly filled with hatred.

    Liberals - stop walking the fence and grow some balls.

    when i said i would be on the fence, i probably should have elaborated more, but i didnt want to make the article about my beliefs. i was raised in a fundamentally christian home, and every time the 'g' word or 'h' word was heard, i was shuffled off to read romans chapter 1 for the umpteenth time.

    when my parents divorced, my mom married again, the man she married had a son who, at the time, was 6. and even at 6, there was no doubt he was going to be gay. when he came out at 16, there was, in the family, a collective "no sh*t, sherlock" response. up until then, the 'born gay' theory seemed ridiculous to me.

    i may never be 100% resolved about homosexuality itself. i dont understand it, and dont try. but the reality is, gay people exist. and we, as a nation, portray ourselves as a melting pot. i guess i wanted people to know im not a proponent of being gay. or an opponent. i was genuinely angry at the law, and the way it was portrayed, and if i dont maintain some semblance of neutrality, i become a target and the article loses any value it may have had. it is what it is, and should have no bearing on political decisions.
