    Wow. So it's better for a child not to have a home, rather than have gay parents... because they might be picked on or teased?

    If that's the case, I think we should also ban fathers who wear black socks and shorts, or parents who give their kids names that other kids can find some way to tease them about, or mothers that gush over their children's performances and also dye their hair inadequately, or parents who have minority religious beliefs or speak with accents, since children can pick on the kids as well.

    Or maybe we'll just punish the "gay couple" rather than the bratty kids. It's probably easier, honestly.

    I am of the same mindset. Civil union contracts for all, marriage for any of those who can receive one from a minister, priest, imam, rabbi, shaman, witch, or whatever.

    I don't see what a Florida state judge has to do with a new administration, but OK.

    Didn't you know? The Messiah President has the power to go back in time to last year and mentally dominate the minds of Florida judges so that they carry out His will. Is it any wonder that we trust Him to control exponentionally increasing aspects of our lives? Resistance is futile.

    If you were ever in a situation where you (any parent considering giving up their child for adoption) chose to put your child up, what became of them afterward is not up to you.

    I completely agree. Marriage is a religious thing and the government should stay out of it. They should grant the tax breaks etc for "Domestic Unions" or something.

    Anyone that falls under that should be afforded the same rights and protections as any other union.

    Also, couldn't people like Sunset just give their child to some private orphanage/adoption agency with parental criteria that excludes homosexuals (though I vaguely remember hearing that certain New England states prohibit such practices, which is equally as wrong as preventing gays from adopting children through public institutions)?

    A friend of mine has two other friends - a gay couple. They have been together for 25 years, bought a home together, made investments together etc.

    2 weekends ago they heard a strange noise in the kitchen. While inspecting the 600 pound exhaust hanging over the island in the middle of the kitchen, it fell. One gentleman is able to jump back, but the other was not. He was killed instantly.

    25 years.

    Now, due to this state not recognizing same-sex unions, the surviving of the two has his hands tied. he cannot even sue the company that installed the range.

    He can't even drive his S.O.'s car. Now comes the nightmare having to do with all the investments they made together - as the deceased's family has been in denial all these years about their relationship and refuse to recognize it.

    Had they been "married" they would have automatically been given some protection.

    This story made a hard-core republican friend of mine completely change her mind about gay-unions. She listens to Rush everyday for petes sake and she sat right there and admitted she has been wrong about this whole topic. She has now altered her view due to it.
