The government only started issueing marriage licenses in the early part of the 20th century. Counties saw it as a way to raise funds on a one-time fee. I`m sure I can speek for the entire Gay Community when we say we will pay the exact same fee as straight people. Equal is equal after all.

You also miss Gerry`s point, homosexuals still face a huge stigma today. African-Americans don`t.

Maybe you should study history a little more closely before ranting like some nappy-headed hoe. Obviously you don`t know that polygamy wasn`t completely outlawed in America until mid-19th century. Even then AFTER the civil war it was practiced by even non-Mormon people.

Now you tell me what business does the government have in certifying one type of relationship over another.

If you`re really a black heterosexual homophobic Conservative as you claim (rather than a troll), then I`ll address that if I may.

There was a time when black people weren`t legally allowed to marry white people. The 1967 Supreme Court decision (although many states had already rescinded it) set that rule as federal law. From that point on (really America? 1967? F*ck me.) black people were allowed to marry white people, by federal mandate.

Now, at what point in your logic, cptbeech, do you say that human rights have been fulfilled, and that from here on in, tough sh*t, you homos?

@Gerry1of1 I do not give a poo what a bunch of goat herders and Mormons thought marriage should be. Your over thinking it. I really do not care about the morality of the issue either. Marriage in the U.S. was intended for a man and a woman. If you want to get married then change the law. IF YOU FAIL at changing the law then TOUGH. TO OTHERS sorry but yall really are a bunch a fags if you think your problems even begin to compare to the suffering the african american community had to suffer through. You already have the same rights as I do. You can marry the opposite sex just like I can and you can not marry the same sex just like I cant. Same for all.

There`s a reason I decided to relocate my family from Europe to Canada a couple of years ago. Canada`s got everything America has going for it: the wide open spaces, the... no, wait, that`s the only one I can think of.

But the point was, Canada is basically America but without the religious crazy bastards.

Actually, it was designed between a man and a woman and another woman and another woman and etc. for the purpose of the man having clear title and grant to own/control all of her properties or future inheritances. Marriage declared her HIS property.

Now, again I don`t mind your opinion...just get your facts in line so you don`t come acrossed as some thick headed git striking out mindlessly at others to overcome some internal issues. I`m not saying you are that, just don`t want you to appear that way, it`s not flatering.

TO be angry at you would only put me on your level. You can`t help that you`re stupid, just as they can`t help that they`re gay... although you do have marginally more control over whether your stupidity is obvious or not.

I have an idea for you to mull over for a while: if one of your parents had been gay, the folks here at i-a-b would have one fewer trolls to contend with on the comments section. By that logic, then, we need more gay people in the world, to lower the chances that another degenerate, neanderthalic, idiotic, genetic throwback like you will be born again in the future.

In short, please die in a fire. Thank you.

Listen you bunch a bone eates, marriage was intended by its design to be between a man and a woman to build a family unit so we could have children and be good productive citizens. homo couples serve no purpose to the greater good. I dont care if you ruin each other non-nice individuals until you cant hold your poo, thats your problem have fun. but if you want to get married then you will have to mutilate yourself and get a fake vagina.

cptbeech - I think you`re trolling, but let`s just go with it anyway in case anyone out there agrees with you.

1st - If homosexuality is a mental disorder, Please send me my Disability Checks. Like other disorders that are incurable, I will expect my piece of the pie.

2nd - If you don`t like gay marriage blame the heterosexual couples who keep making gay babies. We`re born with this "mental defect" you know.

3rd - Pedophiles are 98% heterosexual, not homosexual. Men into beastiality are 99.9% straight men. If you`re going to be ignorant, at least get your ignorant facts straight.

4th - It`s `not natural`. Neither is manned flight so what`s your point?

You are right. It`s her handle on reality that it tenuous.

@ cptBeech - You have a point. It`s the same point people made about black people going to the same schoos with whites. It`s not `natural`. You can`t be giving negroes special privelage {i.e. the same ones I have}. If you did, next it would be the mexicans wanting their kids in school and then what would we do?

You see where this is going right?

cptbeech, the only difference in all of your effed up scenarios is that gay and lesbian couples are made up of two consenting adults. None of your other scenarios involve two entities that can consent to enter into a contract with each other. No argument here, just pointing out what an ignorant point you`re making.

Why are we suppose to compromise societies values because some people, who have an obvious mental disorder(homosexuality), say we should. Please do not argue this with me, it is a disorder, it is not what nature intended. I am not trying to insult anyone it is just a fact. If we follow the LBG communities logic then we will have to start allowing special rights for PEDOS and Zoophiles. If you want these special rights then multiply make more of yourselves, outnumber us. OH wait you cant by the very nature of your relationship. Damn. Also not comparing gays to pedos, I know, okay?

The reason states ever got involved in marriage is because they and the feds offer all sorts of benefits to licensed married couples. Extra benefits like tax breaks, co-insurance, default line of succession regarding property and assets in case of death, medical visitation and advocacy rights, etc. Those benefits are NOT offered to gay or lesbian couples, even in states that allow gay marriage, because the federal government still does not recognize it (although President Obama did change the Rules of Participation for ALL Medicare and Medicaid-accepting hospitals, and now visitation and advocacy rights *are* granted to gay and lesbian couples). Bachman avoids the issue of the right to marry, she avoids the issue of these state-sanctioned benefits, too. That`s discrimination, plain and simple. And bigotry. And those on the wrong side of this argument, I hope you`re proud of yourselves.

So it`s okay to deny homosexuals the right to vist their loved ones in the hospital? To deny them the right to marry the ones they love? Heterosexuals got that right homosexuals don`t.

Furthermore: we didn`t have state issued marriage licenses until the mid-19th century, why does a private matter have to be certified?

Lastly, the state forbids PUBLIC schools MANDATING religious services. You are free pray whenever the PUBLIC school CANNOT force you!

I always wondered what sort of baffling B.S. Republicans tell themselves, to make it OK to deny another human`s right to marriage.

Paraphrasing: "Everyone has the right to marry someone of the opposite sex and no one has the right to marry a member of the same sex. Fair for everyone"

This seems to be that B.S. The stupidity level of some Republicans (and I know not all of you are this dumb), really astounds me.

turbotong - your government make no moral statement about sex. instilling `morals` is a convenient mechanism for having you self-manage your own behavior. child/animal abuse leaves a victim. thats not good for the victim/society. incest weakens a society`s genetic strength, reduces socioeconomic links and adds to the community`s burden of care for the weak. It has nothing to do with being `yukky` or `bad`. those are your reactions which we, the human race, have trained into you for the good of us all. You are the sixth monkey. (look up the five monkeys experiment).
this has nothing to do with democracy. When have you ever voted for/against incest or child abuse? these `moral` issues are built into our society deeper than the political system which we use, else you`d see other non-democratic countries lacking these `morals`. think more, and if you still find you can`t understand the difference between democratic values and morals,well... GTFO out of your country.

about half way through had to stop for a moment. Her answer that gay people have the write to get married as long as it`s a man to a woman is crazy stupid. Yes, gays COULD do that but why in god`s name would they? The whole point is that they want to marry someone they love and they love someone of the same sex. they don`t just want to get married cuz it looks like fun so anyone will do. *face palm*

Let`s use that same logic, Ms. Bachman, transposed back some 150 years: Start from 0:50 in the video and transpose these words:

Q: "Then why can`t a interracial couples get married?"

A: "Well, they can get married, they abide by the same civil laws as everyone else, they can marry a white person if they`re a white person, ot they can marry a black if they`re a black"

Hang in there, gay people. It`s just a matter of time.

I didn`t make a scene but my teacher started noticing it and kept telling sending me down. Worst part? I would get a WEEKS WORTH OF DETENTION for it. You and your conservative "morals" can bite my ass. We lost our freedom when religion sunk its teeth into government.

States and societies have always had the power to make moral statements about sex. It is wrong to have sex with minors. It is wrong to have sex with your mother and father. It is wrong to have sex with another woman if you`re married. It is wrong to have sex with animals, with your cousins, or with multiple wives (except in Utah). Generally states hold that sex is an intimate part of a relationship, not a commercial activity AKA no prostitution (except some states like Nevada). States have also made the moral statement that it is wrong to have sex with members of the same gender. States and society have always regulated all of these through the democratic process, and the majority usually thinks homosexual activities are wrong. Get over it. If you don`t like the democratic process and majority rule, GTFO this country.

birdawg68, your "opinion" stated that consensual relationships between two adults is somehow akin to child molestation. You called relationships deviant. You further called those of us lacking "traditional morals" sheep (irony much, considering that`s what God calls His flock of "independent thinkers"?), and disparaged Hollywood types all in one go (not that I care about that, but...)! If that`s your opinion, fine, but, the inflammatory words you used were trolling, IMHO. That`s all I said about you and your post. The rest of what I said was about protecting the rights of citizens who are in a minority and wouldn`t be protected by local vote. Gays and lesbians are not "deviants" and I won`t stand by and not call out that kind of mindless bigotry any more than I`d stand by and listen to you use the n-word, disparage women, or encourage religious discrimination against non-Christian faiths.

birdawg68 is a-trollin`. For one thing, the reason education was taken away from states is because backwards ass states like AL and MS and GA (where I`m from) would have not problem voting that those with greater incomes get better educations. They *deserve* it for paying more taxes, right? That`s what they`d say. And it`d be legal. Or some would require prayer to a Christian God because, well, they`d vote and Jesus would win. Local communities aren`t known for protecting civil rights of all citizens. Usually just the rich, white, Christian males. Sometimes it takes a larger power to provide that protection. As for the rest of your trolling post, I`m not even going to address it.

So what all of you seem to be saying is that the federal government knows better what you need in school than your local community leaders? And sexual deviants deserve the same rights as non deviants? I bet if a few Hollywood actors decided it was normal to have sex with children, and there was no federal law against it, you would add a c to the end of LBGT for the child molesters, or "lovers" as you headless sheep would call them. Get your heads out of your asses and start thinking for yourself. That lady is crazy, and will never be president. But what she said in that video made sense. The sheep won`t think so because Hollywood says deviancy is OK and persecute anyone with traditional morals. The extreme liberals are just as bad, if not worse than the extreme conservatives. I say live and let live with the gay thing, I don`t care and don`t think they need protection. And anyone who thinks a bunch of crooks in Washington belong in the classroom of children is an idiot!

Further, why couldn`t she just say that, yes, heterosexual couples are given tax breaks and preferential treatment over homosexual couples. That`s the law. Nope, couldn`t admit that. But, she could sure as hell whine and complain (and lie) that kids can`t pray in school. And, somehow, that there are more problems now because kids can`t pray in school? First of all, they can. Second of all, violent crime is down, not up, from when she was in school. Idiot.

What they can`t do, and shouldn`t be allowed to do, is disrupt class or impose their religion on others. That`s it. It`s not like a child can`t pray in school. Holy crap?!
