So what? That does not make a case for gay marriage and as the population of blacks and hispanics grow so will the fight against gay marriage. They are the ones that stopped it in CA, not money.

It's another example of selectively following religous beliefs. No gay marraige, but we'll skip this no divorce rule since I want one...

Blacks came out that have never voted before to vote for hussein obama as did hispanics. To deny those votes did not make the differance is pure hogwash. Gays are just afraidor too cowardly to confront them.

I'll admit I didnt read the article. But what's the reason for divorce? If his wife was an addict or something, or possibly beating their kids, etc. There are many, many reasons for divorce.

Who is Hussein Obama???????

There were two candidates John McCain and Barack Obama. Stop making shyt up just to try and make your case. Its been proven in several articles that Minorities mainly blacks were NOT the deciding vote for Prop 8.

Only if you assume that black and hispanic opposition to gay rights is immutable, which it isn't. Nice try though.

As long as the divorce is handled correctly I don't see it being the problem.

I do see 3 problems that seem to have escaped his attention in being a morally superior being. First is that he emptied all the accounts into his own when they couldn't come to a compromise about the divorce. Secondly is these reports of a child from an adulterous affair in England, not really confirmed but not denied. Third is him paying 2 home workers $7,600 a year, well below the poverty line, as the family spends $20,000 a month in clothes and jewelry (from the article provided).
