      So, Romney, who brought Gay marriage to Massachusetts is all of a sudden against it? He’s accused of starting the ball rolling, and now it’s Obama’s fault — a man who ran on the “I’m against gay marriage” pledge? Egads and Hmm. Meanwhile, let Romney and these “pro-family” creeps outlaw divorce, adultery, unmarried mothers and abandoned children if he truly wanted to “protect marriage” and the “family.” I still for the life of me can’t imagine what these people are thinking of when they accuse me (and of all of us, but I take it very personally,) of being “anti-family.” Whose family? His, theirs, my own? Can they make their mush clear for once instead of tired crud and idiotic repetition of a pointless and simply erroneous phrase?

      For heavens sake, I’m my family’s historian, in possession of more than 2000 photos, and 400 letters and other things, from the past century since we escaped the theocratic-socialism of Europe, which these creeps (it’s a moral, not an economic country, eh Ricky, you idiot.) — I’m the one putting it into order and getting it ready for the archive which awaits it all — my family and I talk incessantly about what I found — my aunts uncles cousins siblings etc, here and in Europe — what the hell are these creeps doing saying I’m “anti-family”? It is infuriating; and it’s just not rational, and my family is getting rather fed up with these morons – and that means they’ve lost nearly 100 votes.

      Romney will do anything for a vote, including selling his mother into white slavery. The others are well-known for their homophobia, but Romney, in his desperation to get the conservative vote, will slime his way into being even worse than the worst of them.

      I have to wonder what you people would be doing these days if you didn’t have the Republican debates to use as a scratching post for your painfully misdirected political ideology. For some reason, you believe the black guy currently in charge is on your side and wants to see you cozily married to the partner of your choice, but the Mormon wants you dead.

      Allow me to use the example of one of the Left’s favorite victimizations: Katrina. After the hurricane, the black community whined and screamed for months—nay, years—about how racist the country was for allowing a hurricane to flood the ‘hood, and yet nation-wide the black community didn’t organize a huge rescue/relief plan for the city’s victims, it was . . . wait for it . . . the Mormons who swooped in and offered aid in the form of food, shelter, and supplies. In fact, when it comes to charities, I’d like for you to look it up and see who is more charitable: Blacks or Mormons. I know, I know, you’re gasping aloud at the perceived racism in such a statement, but allow me to assure you that I have no racial agenda, just a penchant for the truth.

      But these are the people Andrew Sullivan and Chris Barron support. Go figure?

      @pierre: But that’s where you’re wrong, Pierre. I’m not politically correct at all, which is another way of saying I’m bluntly honest. No delusion here. But even if you disagree with me, you should understand that both of our opinions are of equal value—no one is right or wrong, we just have opposing views.
      Be well.

      @christopher di spirito: You obviously haven’t read Andrew Sullivan in a few years. He can’t find enough reasons to love him some Barack Obama. Just look at the latest cover of Newsweek. He’s about as conservative as Michael Moore.

      @Big Mac: I stopped reading Sully after he penned the highly controversial piece for the Advocate proclaiming w/o medical authority that an HIV/AIDS diagnosis is no more serious than a diagnosis of diabetes.

      I also know he recently endorsed Ron Paul for president on the Daily Beast. So if you know something else, please share.

      @Chopper Man: “I have no racial agenda, just a penchant for the truth.”

      That explains why your post calls the president “the black guy currently in charge,” presumes that all hurricane Katrina victims were black, and presumes all Mormon donors were white.

      Nothing racist there, nosiree.

      I don’t know what charities you support that make your race and/or religion clearly identifiable to the recipient, but I’m certain it’s not one I’m familiar with.

      Anyway, as for your own painfully misdirected political ideology, consider that in other similarly situated countries unencumbered by a controlling party of ultraconservative theocrats (like our Republican majority), gay people are no longer presumptively regarded as outliers to fundamental, constitutional and civil rights.

      It is true that President Obama has — in a shocking and uncharacteristic display of dumbshittery — co-opted the Republican’s standard (and insipid) “…because Jesus!” argument with respect to the legal rights, privileges, benefits and obligations of civil marriage. However, indicting Obama on that single issue is also an indictment of mainstream Republican ideology, now isn’t it?

      But you keep on herping that Republican derp. They need more ignorant racists like yourself to reassure other numbskulls that when it comes to operating a government, belief is more important than reason.

      @Chopper Man: Actually the black guy in the White House is on our side, given his track record in (a) opening up some federal benefits for gay partners; (b) refusing to defend DOMA; and (c) dumping DADT.

      As far as Katrina goes, I was there with a volunteer organization for 2 weeks. Those who helped came in all colors. One of the largest volunteer organizations was – gasp – the NAACP.

      You, Sir, are an idiot, and no, your views are of equal value to those who think that 2+3=5.

      @christopher di spirito: Actually, Sully endorsed Ron Paul only as the Republican nominee for President. He still supports Obama versus any Republican in the general election in 2012.

      And while I’ve often found much to criticize in Sully’s comments, the management of HIV/AIDs in patients with access to good medical care is far less burdensome than it once was, and in many instances no more so than managing acute diabetes. Of course, if you lack good medical care, or are cavalier about taking your medication, or further risk your health (smoking, drugs, etc.), then its a different story.

      @the crustybastard:
      @christopher di spirito:
      @Jason:
      Oh please, I call bullshit on all of you. My God, someone mentions the word “race” and you all flip out. I never stated or implied that all victims of Katrina were black—I said it was the black community that complained about how victimized they’d been afterward. And I never stated or implied that all rescue was administered by white people—I only stated that the biggest charity push in N.O. after Katrina was by the LDS church. Did the NAACP do its share? Sure it did—I never said it didn’t. This is you people projecting your knee-jerk reaction to the topic of race onto me. And as far as me refering to Obama as “the black guy in charge”, I meant no disrespect to black people for using Obama’s race as an identifier, but as far as me being a racist? Well, I challenge any of you libs out there to ask yourselves if you’ve ever used the term “white” in the same manner, as an identifier (as in, “Those Tea Party rallies are so white” or “The GOP candidates are nothing but a bunch of old white guys”). If so, you’re as “racist” as I am; if not, then I guess you’re the picture of PC perfection, so congrats on that.

      @christopher di spirito: Paul is nuts and Sullivan talks out both sides of his ass, so I don’t take much stock in either.

      I disagree with Obama on most of his agenda and positions. However, given the anti-gay climate in the GOP field, I plan on voting for him in protest of the other candidate’s support of a federal marriage amendment. I also plan on voting against any senator or representative who is also in favor of such a measure. I cannot in good conscience vote for a candidate who wants to take away my rights as a human being, even if I may agree with someone on other issues.

      TL;DR: Federal Marriage Amendment = automatic disqualification
