My first Blog

I have to wonder when I hear my fellow conservatives and republicans speak just how many are Bi or Gay.
I know there is A growing portion of the Gay community that has become Republican for economic and security reasons. We often just have to smile at the Religious wing of our Party. Why make Gay Marriage an issue ? It's not going to bring out the vote in any big way except perhaps for the opposition. Most Republicans are, like most Americans a "Live and let Live" bunch. This is a non-issue.
So why do we bring it up ? It gets air time on TV & Radio is my conclusion. Besides the nuts that really believe that it is a sin before God I think the rest are just yelling "FIRE" so they will get noticed.

The reason that this is brought up, is to tell the Supreme Court and the Federal Judges to let each individual State to decide this issue. This issue should be handled at the State level, not in the Supreme Court. An amendment to the Constitution will probably not pass, unless the Supreme Court deals with this issue, then it will pass. And by the way, fellow Republican here.

You may be correct. The constitution clearly implies that a marriage is between a man and a woman. But our federal judiciary of late has taken some pretty lose interpretations. Some of the states lean to "Civil Unions" while others write laws that would let anything happen. A Supreme Court decision would either lay the matter to rest or force the amendment process.

In the meantime why bring it up on the national stage ? I think it's a waste of time when there is more important work.

from my studies, God says one thang
about gays, he calls it inconvenient,
not sin, can the clay say to the potter
why have you made me thus, live more
important than let live, thats redundant,
youre not living if youre condemning

Thank you Mary. Your opinion matters far more than you may think; I've read your stuff. I do hope I didn't condemn anybody. I don't recall ever having done so.

But so it may appear it is not A-Moral to be Bi &/or Gay. Cool.

Back to my point. Then why do some make it appear so ?
