Politics overtaking governance and cooperration, this time over marriage issue

Late last night, just hours after the President announced his support for same sex marriage, House Republicans voted nearly unanimously to stop the Obama administration’s efforts to end discrimination against gay and lesbian Americans.

The issue is a separation of church and state issue, with religious beliefs dominating on which definition of marriage to use and over who is entitled to equal rights under the law by definition.

It is also one that is election year politics as well, without the open discourse, discussion, debate and deliberation which should be a part of all congressional governance.

People should be who they want to be. If they want to marry someone let them, it should be the choice of the people. The people want gay marriage obviously. What possible negative side effects could come from same sex marriage?

Under the definiton of the law. WE ARE ALL EQUAL!!! Plane and simple we should worry about our marriages and our relationships, our families, nstead of stressing over whether or not your Gay neigbor is going to be able to marry the person he or she has been with for 8 years now, but instead you ignore your marriage that is falling apart when you have only known eachother for 2 years and have been married for 6 months. People need to but out. LOVE AND BE LOVED! no matter who it is by.

This is going to be a really dirty and disgusting campaign we are going to witness this year. I believe gay marriage should be legal. The purity of marriage has been long stained and gay people will not make it worse!
