It won't matter. 9 people out of over 300 million will decide gay marriage is 'legal' in June - the Supreme Court has taken up the case, and it will be adopted...just like Obamacare and back in 1973 - abortion....no matter just how many of the 300 million disapprove of it.

We the people...and 'a government of the people, by the people, and for the people are just crusty old slogans of a bygone era.

I hate it when people try to justify something because they don�t want to admit that they or their family members can do something immoral. So if his son would have said he likes little boys, would he then then say that he supports pedophilia?

That's how it got passed here in Iowa. :mad: The people didn't have a say so, just the Iowa Supreme Court judges. When it came time for them to be voted on again, only one of them who voted for it retained their job, but his vote came several years later or he would've been off like the others.

Please don't take offense to this, but the people of Iowa voted for the Governors who appointed the State Supreme Court justices, so they had a say so. Of the 7 justices who struck down the Iowa state law restricting marriage to a union between a man and woman, 2 were appointed by Republican Governor Terry Branstad, 4 were appointed by Democrat Governor Tom Vilsack, and 1 was appointed by Democrat Governor Chet Culver. It was nice to see Iowans vote to throw out 3 of the 4 justices that they went after, but it was too little, too late. Additionally, just this past November the people of Iowa voted to let Democrats retain control of the Iowa State Senate, effectively blocking any chance of getting a referendum on same-sex marriage on the ballot so that the people of Iowa could vote on it. Last but most certainly not least, the people of Iowa voted to send Barack Obama to the White House - twice! They voted for the Democrat Presidential candidate in 6 of the last 7 elections. I have little sympathy for the people of Iowa on the subject of same sex marriage or anything else, for that matter. I do, however, want to hunt their deer and plan to do so in a year or two. :)

I hope I'm never put in that position, but by faith, I would not agree with nor support homosexuality. I would not disown my child, I think the bible preaces to love others, but that doesn't mean that I should change my beliefs or have to condone what they are doing either.

I can't control the people who live in the big cities and unfortunately they out number the rural folks. I'd say about 90% of the collage kids voted Democrat which doesn't help. It's illegal to shoot democrats here in Iowa and very little chance of changing some of their minds even with a big club. The gay marriage decision should have been voted on by the people, not the court, but they knew it wouldn't pass if that would have been the case. I don't agree on everything the Governor and other politicians do here in Iowa either, but guessing very few can say they agree 100% with everything their Governor does either? And yes I voted for Branstad. Please don't group ALL of us Iowan's as being blue state minded, just out numbered by big city liberals.

I ticked all my aunts and uncles (even my mom) off when everyone found out that one of their brothers was gay. All of the sudden homosexuality was never to be spoken bad of again.

I told them just because Uncle Tim is gay it didn't change the fact that it is an abomination in the eyes of God. We can still love the guy but he's dead wrong.

The same goes for this dudes son.
