Why a homosexual couple  be deprived the   legal protection under federal or state laws as heterosexual couple? They have children, work, contribute to society, pay taxes, and they  are this country citizens. They have the same needs  as heterosexual  couples/ families. Examples? Such as survivorship social security benefits, inheritance tax benefits, family health benefits. 
These are the most apparent examples not to mentioned treatment as a second class citizens.
I have been against rights for homosexual couples, but one day as I have been thinking about it, I have asked myself why??? Why am I opposing? Simple. Sexual aspect of homosexual relationships. Bingo. Then I thought, so what is wrong with any two people loving and respecting each other, wanting to share life together. The answer is nothing. It became an issue when you add sexuality as part of these relationships. Mainly because of my upbringing and ignorance on the human sexuality. Then as a catholic, the question  Is would God approve it? God in His infinite wisdom forgave us and asks us to forgive and love each other. Why would not He?

I say FAKE because homosexual marriage has been banned in 30 state constitutions since 2004, including ultra-liberal homosexual-saturated California, and that couldn’t happen unless a MAJORITY opposed it. When you consider how hard it is to pass a state constitutional amendment (usually 3/5 majority), that is nothing short of amazing.

Despite the FAKE polls, it is highly probable that homosexual marriage will be banned in North Carolina and Minnesota next year, and repealed in New Hampshire and Iowa shortly thereafter. That’s 34 states. We are closing in on the magic number of 38 … the number of states required to ratify and amendment to the US Constitution.

These people are influencing kids. i barely see people like them 20 yrs ago in my place, but now you won’t sure what your baby will be like when it grows.

Expand domestic partner rights, etc-ok, but calling live in friends a marriage is a joke! When we mess with the traditional family unit, we’ve lost it completely! It’ll cause anarchy and be real expensive! When we invite hell into our country, don’t be suprised when a hell breaks loose!

It is not natural. Their surveys are biased in what ever direction they want them to be slanted. It is a fact of statistics.
