It's odd that the same common sense, intellect and morally sound policy about slavery can't be applied to gay marriage. That being the case perhaps govt ought to get out of the marriage business altogether. Homosexuality is never going away. If Joe and John, or Mary and Marie, want each other, let them hit the sack and if kids come about from that unnatural meet more power to them...no adoption tho' we are already have too many mixed-up and confused kids with a twisted brain !! Finally, it's astonishing how liberals only want toleration when it fits their ideology !!
