    Govt should stay out of peoples lives, that is freedom isnt it. Though Im very happily married to the woman I love I see no reason why govt should tell anyone how to live their life. Govt is loaded with hypocrites as we see all the time.

    I'm not gay, so this doesn't effect me, but I agree. The government shouldn't care what 2 people want to do, and if they want to get married, let them. Besides, shouldn't they have the right to be miserable just like all the other hetero married couples :D

    I agree.

    I am not gay, but I don't think the government should be able to decide what people want to do. And really, why can't two men or women get married while 16 year old boys can marry 50 year old women (I was watching Maury the other day haha) or even 20 year old women to 70 year old men.

    I agree -- allowing two adults who love each other to build a lifelong relationship, perhaps even rear children, and establish proper legal protections is really sick and disgusting.

    You can think whatever you want, just so long as you don't force your beliefs on others. And yes, at least Iowa has realized this is a free country.

    You obviously missed aquajet's sarcasm. He's one of us evil people. :rolleyes:

    And just how many gay people do you know? I'm 40 and doing pretty darn good, and so are most other gay people I know. I know more gay couples who are happy in relationships over 25 years than I can count. Get to know us, we're a pretty nice bunch of folks.

    Well considering we have a divorce rate of what, 50% or something, a married gay couple probably won't have any more problems ahead of them than a married straight couple :rolleyes:

    it is against all i know as a believer in the Bible...i'm not going 2 accept as a "nice way of life"...God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and steve. The normal life span of a gay man is around 50 years...seach it on google.

    whats the divorce rate for gay couples? It's probably lower than hetero couples. Makes our life choice not very evil.

    Oh here we go! I'm too tired to explain this one away, I've had to do it so many times. Can someone else do it? I had a long day at work and I'm exhausted. Come on guys, help iTeen out. I get tired of convincing people we aren't evil all the time. ;)

    But christians preach that we're all god's creations, so that means that he created my friend Steve, and he also created that other guy named Adam. So he did in fact create Adam and Steve.

    Ah, the bible trumps common sense and the teachings of jesus... I love it!

    I wonder what the average lifespan of a xian hater is?
    Hatred kills more than love does...



    On topic, it makes me somewhat proud of my nominal Iowa heritage.

    Glad to hear that discrimination is being viewed for what it is.

    Hmmm.

    Guess what Mr "Adam and Steve"


    Did you know that only 33% of the world are Christians? Do the Math.

    You ARE in the Minority after 2000 years...



    And I do recall a "cast the first stone" quote from some very wise man.


    It would be nice if Folks would listen to the the words of the man, and not the patron saint of salesman that convoluted his teachings to sell it to the rest of the world <end soap box>
