I think Colin Powell is entitled to his opinion. I respect Colin Powell....does not mean that I agree with him though.

That is hardly what the left believe though. If you do not agree with the left, then you should just shut up....at least that is what they believe.

Nice way to refer to honorable serviceman..

He endorsed the candidate that had the same color of skin that he has, and the world is full of honorable servicemen.

Did Powell evolve on this issue before or immediately after Obama evolved on this issue.

I hate that Colon Powell has turned into a double-talking jive artist (ie. politician).
You're right that there is no religious argument when it comes to civil marriage.

However it is highly arrogant of you to assume that your particular religious views should takes precedence over religious views that have no issue with same-sex marriage.

You mean all the self-righteous hate-filled religious bigots are finally going to go where they deserve to go?

Like the Pharisees Jesus castigated in Matthew 23? Hallelujah! Praise Jesus!

Who said his service was irrelevant? I said his OPINION became irrelevant the day he endorsed Obama for president. Anyone who endorses Obama is obviously lacking judgement and their opinion should be highly scrutinized.
