Safe Mode: On
Spoken From the Heart.

Washington state Rep. Maureen Walsh (R-Walla Walla) chokes back tears
as she speaks candidly in support of the state’s bill to legalize
same-sex marriages.
The legislation passed yesterday by a vote of 55 to 43 and now heads to Gov. Chris Gregoire, who has already promised to sign it into law.


Money: “My daughter came out of the closet a couple of years ago and
you know what I thought I was going to agonize about that. Nothing’s
different. She’s still a fabulous human being and she met someone she
loves very much. And some day, by God, I want to throw a wedding for
that kid. And someday I hope that’s what I can do.”

      I agree, I think male gay sex is gross as it gets but who cares? I don't have to see it hear it. Let them get married and lets please move on.

    • @Momus Thanks for the heart felt, logical and unique description of the issues surrounding homosexual marriages. You have convinced me to see this issue in an entirely different light. I only have to add that a dramatic rewrite of the IRS code should be the next logical step. Social engineering thru taxation has been going on far to long.

  • gays should be allowed to marry, they deserve to be just as miserable as the rest of us.

      In response to your avatar. I would vote for someone else if they were better.

      If Paul get the nod I will if not Obama. The rest are clowns.

    • @Tanngrisnir3 It has nothing to do with freedom or big gov't. It has to do with right and wrong, not left or right.

    • @Tanngrisnir3 I am far from an idiot, but I do not believe in gay marriage and sure as hell dont think they should get the same benefits as "real" married couples
