    Re: combustion – Well MILLIONS DO care. Gay rights activists will NOT stop until there are equal rights for gay couples in EVERY state :D

    NEWSFLASH…..democrats also do not support gay marriage…..EVEN THE DEMOCRATICE PRESIDENT!! Surprise you dumb cocksucker!

  5. 5

    BTW..the "hindrance" you refer to is the fact that it was ever even considered…..

    I'm a pro-gay marriage fiscal conservative.
    I wish the Republicans would keep their platform focused on LIBERTY, national security, low taxes, and limited regulations that protect the consumer while allowing private businesses to flourish, providing maximum individual choice in what we buy and how we live, as well as opportunity and prosperity for everyone willing to work.

    No doy. The core values of the republican party do not/should not include denying gay people the right to get married.

  9. 9

    So will you stop bashing them as a whole? Quit grouping people and then judging them harshly and calling them names.

  10. 10

    I'm pro gay marriage, I'm against slutty gays wanting to marry just because…..

    Re: Where is Obama? – Actually if you did some research you would realize that Obama supports FULL and EQUAL rights for gay couples. That mean FULL and EQUAL marriages. even if he does call it a Civil Union…Do some research. Nice try buddy.

  12. 12

    It no longer matters what people think of gay marriage. The courts are protecting the minority :) Sorry guys :D

    Though this comment doesn't really pertain to the article:
    I don't know if you knew this but..
    Barack Obama and Joe Bieden think marriage should be btwn a man and a woman. I'm so sick of your "I'm-a-liberal-cause-I'm-gay" attitude. You don't know squat about politics.

  15. 15

    Well they should considering about half are closet gays anyway. People that oppose gay marriage are gay themselves. Straight people do not give a damn what other people do with their parts at least i don't.

  16. 16

    Well said CaraC. I say it's about time the Republican Party rethinks their stance on gay marriage! I've voted for Republicans for years, but always with a little shame in my heart because I'm pro gay marriage (fiscally conservative, socially liberal). I'm excited to hear that the party is considering getting on the right side of this issue. Equality for all!

    Hey. I thought the Miss America runner up was right. I think marriage is defined as between a man and a woman. If gay people want some kind of union it shouldn't be defined as marriage. I think Perez you really are intolerant of Christians. You need to get saved because all your fame and money will fade away. Only loving the Lord with all your heart soul mind and strength will last. God created this world and He has rules and wishes. It's up to us to find out what they are and obey them. But they are in our hearts. We just have to listen to them. Perez, you are wrong and were vicious. It proves you need to be saved.

    Re: gabriellemerc – Actually you are WRONG. Nice try though :) Barack Obama was against the passing of Prop 8 and called it "Un-American" He also support FULL and EQUAL rights for gays under a civil union. Current civil unins exclude 1,300 rights and protections. Do some research.

  20. 20

    it is not just the republican party that is anti gay union. its also democRATS. get over yourselves. it is getting way old, the double standards. we are starting to vote against everything this great country was founded on. why do you think thousands of people risk their very lives EVERY day to try and get into this country??? because we are GREAT. ONE NATION UNDER GOD. are we forgetting that? i know i'm not, and it's a shame that the principles that shaped this country are being thrown out because "its not fair". well you know what, life isn't fair. get over it, or go live somewhere else. cause the people who truly love this country and the morals it was founded on are sick of the whiny baby bullshit.

  21. SoCal says – reply to this


    One guy, a loser strategist for McCain says it, and it's "Republicans rethinking stance?" Dream on fat fagboy. The same article says the MAJORITY OF AMERICANS STILL OPPOSE GAY MARRIAGE. You must have missed that part, I put it in caps to get your attention.

  22. 22

    well said i totally agree

  23. SoCal says – reply to this


    Re: sticky_and_sweet

    No, Obama is against gay marriage. Do your own f*ckin research.

  24. 24

    Log Cabin 'pubs are lubing up their " logs " as we speak!

  25. 25

    Re: SoCal – No he is NOT. He wants FULL and EQUAL rights under a civil union which is basically the same thing.

  26. 26

    Re: Big Black Dick – #25.

  27. 27

    Re: SoCal – It does not matter what YOUR opinion or even the Presidents. The fact is that gay marriage is being legalized by the courts who want to protect the minority. It is happening in more and more states whether you like it or not.

  28. 28

    Get over it people………..it WILL Be LEGAL soon!!!! I SUPPORT THE GAYS ALL THE WAY!!!!

  29. 29

    Good. I like to see numbers that people are getting smarter. They are right, people are moving away from republicans because they are too old school, haters, and are focused on things that are not helping our country or the ecomony.

  30. 30

    This is an issue that's supposed to be close to your heart, Perez, yet you are late AGAIN. I read about this guy at least a month ago on CNN or something. Get with it.

  31. 31

    Obama hates fags

  32. 32

    i'm not gay and i think that the gay marriage issue is pretty insignificant compared to the wars we are currently fighting and the economy. give gays equal rights and let's move on to other issues.

    Some member, who Perez. it's your job to find out you douchenugget. Any American who believes in Gay marriage should bash their head on asphalt.

  36. 36


  37. 37

    I think gays should have the same rights as straights. The right to marry, the right to put up with all the horseshit that goes along with it…….divorce, heartache, losing everything you own, and attorney fees. Why leave out gays? They deserve the same right to legally tie themselves to whomever they wish. Be seeing you in bankrupcy court after they pass the law.

  38. 38

    not all republicans don't believe in gay marriage. and guess what! not all democrats believe in gay marriage either. gosh Perez. honestly i read your site for the celebrities. please try and stick to them!

  39. 39

    Re: Where is Obama? – Is that a picture of your dad,guess hes republican.

    Re: chunkaroo527 – Wow chunky girl is again making excuses for republican bigots.

  41. 41

    Re: gabriellemerc – And why are you an uneducated southern republican,because youre parents are white trash and bigots? Any gay person their family memmbers and friends have to be on crack if they vote for the gop southern taliban party. Oh and if you're sick of Perez's comments go to where most conservative trash blog,the nra and nascar chatlines or is it kkk?

  42. 42

    Re: mattvoyager – LIke most fascist conservative scum you seem confused,Russia harasses gays just like the muslim countries who would behead a christian and a gay person in a hearbeat. Are those the people you look at for spirtual guidance you fascist prick. The places that give gays the most rights are white upscale european liberal countries and Canada,oh and in this country its wherever you find large concentrations of white educated ,wealthy,jewish and artistic types. So that rules out the southern cesspool for sure. I'm not pc but im 100 % factual .

  43. 43

    and what excuses would that be?

  44. 44

    Re: soccerchick26 – Well that might be true,but the republican party is one hundred percent behind all the antigay stuff that goes on in California and in bringing up antigay laws and bill. And in Ca the dem party is the only party that is bringing forth pro-gay rights,marriage rights and civil rights bills. Also the fascist fundamentalist taliban republican party is behind every antigay bill and law all across this country,they are its a fact,so dont try to make it seem like they are the same. Bigots vote republican and thats why the south is all republican or conservative today.

    Re: knowitall – reading your posts are hilarious. you honestly have NO idea what you are talking about. i am honestly amused and a little appaled that a fellow american can have such hate towards another person just because they have different views. you are the dictionary term for bigot. you are using that word completly out of context.

  46. 46

    Re: chunkaroo527 – I've had enough of you bigot republican nazi chick,go watch nascar with your white trash parents.

  47. 47

    Re: chunkaroo527 – You are worse,scum like you discriminate against gays for simply being born gay,so spare me your fellow American hate bs.

  48. 48

    Re: knowitall – you say almost the same exact thing to any republican/conservative that speaks out on these blogs. come up with something a little bit more creative! i dont want to feed your satisfaction, but for the hell of it, i don't watch nascar, and even if i did, who gives a flying fuck? you are too uneducated for my taste, you are killing my brain cells. i wouldnt be suprised if you aren't over 18 years of age, and if you are…i truly feel sorry for you.

  49. 49

    Well they've sold out on all their other principles why not this one as well.

  50. 50

    Re: knowitall

    wow….youre an idiot.

    how can you say such hateful things….

  51. 51

    Re: knowitall

    really….maybe not an idiot…. insane??

  52. 52

    Re: chunkaroo527

    cheers….right on…agree

    Obama is anti-gay marriage because he wants to get voted in again. Lets get real here. Politicians always surf the status quo when it comes to civil liberties. They avoid it like a plague, and try their best to create safety-nets for themselves. This whole crap about civil unions is nothing but a safety-net. It doesn't matter anyway, because last election there was not one politician (Ron Paul included) that was consistently pro-civil liberties.

    I think when a law is not general, or that it picks on a certain minority group's civil liberties, said law should be suspect. We have many examples of these laws in society, ranging from attacks made against particular religious groups, to attacks against unpopular opinions, to euthanasia, and gay rights. Clearly this issue interests you Perez, so my suggestion would be to talk about other topics that share the same underlying principle in law. It gets a bit tiring to read your constant … frustration about gay marriage. It doesn't look good when you are a one-topic man.

    Re: chunkaroo527
    Re-summarizing your argument: A law is immune to criticism or change, because it has historical reference. There is no need to actually legitimize it, because any legal practice that has been continuously and widely accepted throughout American history, is unquestionably immune from due process condemnation.

    Today however, a great many judges (including the majority on your supreme court), lawyers and scholars now prefer a different interpretive strategy: They believe that all abstract clauses should be understood as incorporating certain fundamental principles of individual freedom and equality, principles that are honored in the general structure of the Constitution and legal practice. Of course, these principles have historically, and continuoulsy, been dishonored, from time to time, in more specific practices. On that view, a constitutional challenge to long-established laws, like any anti-homosexual law, asks judges to consider whether those laws, in spite of their long history, can nevertheless now be seen to offend more general principles to which the Constitution commits the nation.

    I've been republican since I got my drivers license when I was 18. I was raised Christian.

    I, in no way shape or FORM, condone ANY of the discrimination that MANY of my gay friends have to experience on a DAILY basis. I grew up in Farm country rural Nebraska. And we were taught tolerance. Just because you dont agree with something someone says or does means you shut your damn mouth before looking like a fool. Any and every person that believes that gays cannot have a wedding and a MARRIAGE certificate is speaking out of their asses. Your foolish to believe that its a "right" for just straight men and women.

    Thats all I have to say about that. Go Perez you get them baby!

    Mr Goldwater would puke if he were alive to see what has happened to the Grand old Party or is that the Grand old Poop!

  57. 57

    I wish gays would shut the fuck up about this already
