Point is, I don't think that congress or The President has any business driving legislation of any sort on the gay marriage issue.

Steve Palazzo is entitled to an opinion, but my fear is that he will join with a band of control freaks of one flavor or another and attempt to "save" us all from some horror.

I extend my very strong feelings on this subject to the Starkville City Council who felt moved to recognize gays and lesbians. The whole issue is none of their concern.

Legislators should legislate. They should leave moralizing and proselytizing to those who do not legislate.

In fact since polygamy is illegal they should be fighting even more for their rights if their arguments were based on the rationale they claim.
Polygamy is a religious thing, fine with them, fine with me. It's not many people.
