Respect and tolerance are an important part of the basis for this Country. We have been a melting pot for all faces, all Faiths, and all other individual choices. I support marriage between one man and one woman. It does have a Biblical basis, but, that is not why I support it. The creation of a family is probably one of the strongest alliances that most of us enjoy. It also supports the society in which we live. We were designed to procreate and to have progeny. I would accept, and hopefully, the Republican Party would accept that those parties that are committed to each other, and have entered into a civil union be allowed the financial benefits of traditional marriage. I believe that gay individuals would accept this arrangement.
