It was intentional deception, thus nullifying the poll. Oh, well.

(Yep, they have to 'register' to get a marriage lisence, so, they are wasting man/woman hours to register them).

I would never approve this, and we 'know' what the Bible says about homosexuals...so, as I always say, Democrats have no morals, as they are the ones pushing for this form of marriage. Leave it between a man and a woman!

May the LORD Bless each of you.

I wish you well...

And as an immoral Atheist I believe that the bible is fiction. And, being an American Citizen I'm entitled to that belief. Bummer for you Christers, isn't it?

If it offends you on religious principles, just say no to being gay yourself. You have no right to inflict your religion on others, though.

Isn't that an oxymoron? Most people I know that profess atheism, acknowledge that morality is subjective, i.e relative only to the person, so how could one be immoral?

P.S. Atheists are people of great faith.

You said it, not me.

Bummer that you non-believers will be damned to an eternal life in the torment of fire and brimstone for being the way you are and failing to come to your senses.

Post like this are the reason why many give up on fundlemental Christianity. If the goal of a Christian is to be like Christ and learn about the his ways and teachings....well, do some more homework!
While the bible does address homosexuality, Jesus himself, never did.

I voted yes...it's abhorrent that any legitimacy is given to perverted behavior in society.

Next they'll be crying about not getting to have public sex acts.
