I don't see that happening anytime soon in Michigan, however my point was, even if you "legalize" homosexual marriage do you think all people are simply going to say, "Oh look the court over ruled the will of the people so we better pretend like we are now enamored with the two guys down the street"!!!

Trust me people will always have a choice of what they believe or know to be morally right or wrong!!!

I could imagine a group of gay men and a group of straight men in a coffee shop, having a conversation about their opposite viewpoints, unfortunatelly I see the gay men responding much like this Perez Hilton.

The "you don't agree with me so I'll trash you and your name" type.

She's going to become the darling of the right and make money in appearance fees... maybe write a book with Ann Coulter and get elected as a Congressman from Minnesota.

Kinda like Perez is the darling (id say that name suits him pretty well) of the left? Making money off of other people that actually have talent? . And will probably replace Pelosi.

Well, I'm sure that after loving v virginia, some ppl weren't too excited about seeing a wedded interracial couple. The reality is that you have to start somewhere and sometime. Slavery should have been abolished before 1863, but it didn't happen until 1863. You have to start the journey somewhere,otherwise you'll just be living half a life forever.

Hey..believe me. Im not scared of homo's by any means. I've got no problems with them. What? He can call girls ****s and ******* but "oohhhhh no...cant make fun of him because he's gay...his feelings will get hurt". If he wants to be equal he can take the same abuse as everyone else. Or at least the same abuse as he spews out himself. Do you see a problem with that?

And your point of the left not being controlled by the extreme but the right is is pure opinion. You have no basis of backing that up at all. I will admit that both extremes are horrible as I dont really care about either party, but you're glasses are too tinted to admit anything wrong with the left at all.

No, they're saying just don't use the Miss USA platform that supported you and paid for your cosmetic surgery to promote your personal agenda. We all know nobody would be listening to her if it weren't for the "controversial" question Hilton asked.

I've seen this statement before. Nobody has answered me, however. Donald Trump, who owns the Miss USA franchise, said that he reviewed the questions, and the scoring by the 12 judges, and Miss NC won fair & square. Just FYI in case you don't know, Miss NC also won the swimsuit contest and the evening gown contest. We really don't know she would have won had her answer been intelligible.

Please explain what "regular" people are. Do you mean people who aren't constipated?

Agree! I don't like bullies either, so I must be regular (or is that unleaded?) Hopefully one day they'll stop gay bashing.

I agree with this statement. Until the world as we know it ends, there will always be discord on Earth.

I can see the Republicans and the GOP trying to make another Joe the Plumber out of her, based on this issue.
