A Civil Union contract recognized by the State is a heckuva improvement over the situation 40 or 50 years ago where to be openly gay was dangerous. All your marches and protests are not helping your cause. If you insist on being a pain in the butt (no pun intended) you are wasting your time.

Well here's a clue for you. Nebraska does not recognize same sex marriage or same sex civil unions or same sex domestic partnerships. I'm thinking NO IMPROVEMENT! Are you thinking at all?

you are the one that needs to get educated.. I do not know if you are straight or gay, it really doesn't make much diffeence but you certainly are hostile which leads me to believe you are basically very unhappy..

There will be an election again in two years, now let it go til then. By carrying on the way you do all you are is bringing the negative side of your fight to the surface..

Did it ever occur to you, not all gays march or protest and not all even feel the way you do???

Like I previously mentioned this Prop 8 vote has reignited the gay movement, galvanized the unity of homosexuals around the world. Thank the mormon and anyone else who voted for prop 8 for all the gay you are going to be hearing about!!! YOU and PEOPLE like YOU will be hearing a lot from us!!!!! Get used to it. We are gonna be out there protesting. Your children are going to know that gays and lesbians exist and are fighting for the same rights their straight parents enjoy. But none of this would be happening if you just let us have the same rights to begin with that you have!!!!!

I'm quite aware that alot of gays don't march or protest. That's their loss, their laziness. The black community marched, protested, they even rioted and burned things down, and they now have equal rights. All we have done was protest peacefully, and get our word out there. That will never stop. Apparently all we have to do is peacefully protest and thats enough for people to feel threatened. Just look at this thread.

I should be unhappy, I'm missing certain inalienable human rights. What part of that do you not get?

Default ...

There are just too many christians that believe that they have the right to enforce their doctrines on everybody's life..

Some believe so heavily in their belief system, that they try to force everybody else to do the same thing, like stalin, gorvachav etc..

Lol, so gays get to pay upwards of $500/hr for a lawyer to gain them the same basic rights as the rest of us?

I agree with Todd, the marriage part should be up to the church. The government, however, should afford civil union status much more readily without a couple having to fight through the court system.

The gays I know that do not march or protest are far from lazy, they are all very successful business people who find other ways to enjoy their weekends. and have class. Great to point out what the blacks did, burning down buildings, looting during riots, that is really something to be proud of, how totally sad that is...I really don't think that is how they got their rights and it certainly wasn't what Martin Luther King Jr preached..No, not all of your protests have been peaceful, ripping signs out of little old lady's hands is really peaceful or did you not see that last week?? Are you seeing only what you want to see??

Look...I'm not going to start quoting a lot of Bible verses...I doubt that most of the gay people reading this board care--they've heard 'em all before, and they have justified it in their mind.

I'm just sick of being told that we are bigots if we don't believe that gay is healthy and natural. I'm not going to call anyone names, and I'm not going to get worked up in a tizzie about it...but we're just getting sick of it. And when the voters do vote, it apparently doesn't matter--because the courts will find a way to overrule them.

i think someone mentioned earlier that the majority vote is really a bad argument because part of the reason for the constitution is to protect minority groups of people.

i.e., most majority groups will never vote to give others more


i would guess that those arguing against gay marriage simply don't believe that you are born that way.

am i right ? because if you do believe people are born this way, and still want to deny them rights, then you really are pretty cruel.

Unfortunately Civil Unions are not marriages. It becomes to easy for people like nita and kdrich to take the benefits of marriage away from those with civil unions, its separate and unequal to marriage. The haters all know this. They are ones who take away those benefits and privileges.

We all find ways to enjoy our weekends. Duh! Some of us just believe in receiving the same rights as you enjoy.

You want to bring up the old lady issue, well, ever heard of Matthew Shepard? Murdered for being gay, left to hang on a fence and slowly die for being gay. Remeber the movie Boys Don't Cry? Happened right here in Nebraska, Brandon Tina, killed for being transgendered. When was the last time a gay person killed a straight person for being straight?
