Shoobee, while I agree with much of your posting, I still feel as thought I have a moral obligation to not vote for and to speak freely about an individula who is against everything I believe religously, morally, and spiritually. I absolutely agree with what you are saying about retirement and tax benefits- I believe when it comes to that everyone should be eligable for that- BUT, I do not feel as though legalizing gay and lesbian marriage is the way to do it. There are other ways around this- how, I don't know... but I'm sure those "smarties" in D.C. can figure it out.
While I agree that everyone should be eligable for the same benefits based on hard work and dedication, I do not feel as though this lifestyle should grant freedom of that. Am I opposed to banning gay/lesbian marriages in order for everyone to receive this "right".... I think you know the answer to that Q
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
