    Are you kidding me? Vote for another Liberal activist?
    I think this site is trying to break it's own record of force feeding us every story in the entire nation that concerns Gays. Have you ever seen such blatant brainwashing that our media is putting over on Americans. Constant barrage of Gay propaganda. It's like the Taliban controlling their press & only allowing stories that lift up their agendas. This is truly sickening!

    When gay marriage will decidedly benefit divorce lawyers and generate more billable hours to them, and most legislators ARE lawyers, what's so darned prophetic about his predictions? It's having de facto lobbyists acting as law makers deciding future laws to benefit their brethren. Absolutely nothing prophetic about that.

    I believe by that time most Americans knew gay marriage was going to become legal. 2004 was just 10yrs ago, not the far past history. The movement had already started. The Supreme Courts main objective is to uphold the constitution. That we are equal is contained there in. The Supreme Court had no choice but to strike down those portions of DOMA. To not allow gay marriage is saying we are not all equal. The Supreme Court had to hold that we are all equal. I would like to point out a democratic president passed DOMA. Under another democratic president, who really had nothing to do with it, the Supreme Court struck down those portions of DOMA. Now it's up to individual states to pass gay marriage. We are moving along slowly but surely for each state to give gays the same rights under state law as heterosexual couples. My state has a democratic governor that will not let gay marriage pass. He is about to term out and the majority of our state is glad. He also passed some of the most strict abortion law that our former republican governor(Mike Huckabee) left alone! I don't know how this governor got re-elected. This lieutenant governor may very well have been the first to stand up and say it. Kudos to him for doing so. We are all equal under the law. I believe the Supreme Court should stand up and take it a step further. That may very well move the states along faster. The hardest state to break will be Arizona if we go by their history. If their governor signs the state's legislators newest law, they are making all discrimination legal, not just against gays. Talk about moving backwards!

    Bottom line: There is no legitimate argument against gay marriage. And every argument against gay marriage has been easily beaten. Equality is equality and that all anyone should care about in the modern times.

    Not among the people I know. My older brother was gay. That was a major topic of discussion and he passed away in 2006.

    I agree about equality, obviously. My older brother was gay. But equality is not all that anyone should care about in modern times. It's high up on the list, but there are far more pressing issues.

    Understandable. I grew up in rural Ohio. Small town USA. People I know who used to view it as a bad thing 10 years ago are now coming around to it.

    HMMM........wondering why the liberal democrat CIG (Commander in Gay) hasn't issued a EO commanding the IRS to acknowledge all gay marriages, whether the states legalize it or not. Maybe, his NOT wanting to be photographed with this Lt Governor is the telling reason?
    Once you come outta the closet, there's no going back in, eh Obama?

    Actually it's the big anti-gay agenda people that tend to be closeted gay. It's a way for them to try and overcompensate. These are the people you find in airport bathrooms trying to fulfill their needs.

    Odd the article never mentions Newsom being a drunk and screwing the wife of his former deputy chief of staff and campaign manager.

    @Now_What OK, while I agree, I have to ask again.
    Why hasn't our CIC issued some type of EO?
    He can command certain Ex. Offices to help this situation.
    Could Obama be a closeted gay because of his lack of support for the gay cause?

    @stepped_in_it I think that for a president, he has been very supportive. He is the first president to come out and say that he is in favor of gay marriage and gay rights. I'm not saying that he isn't, only an individual knows that, but he wouldn't fit this example IMO.

    @drpeeper probably because that has nothing to do with the subject at hand. i don't particularly care what politicians do in their private lives, republican or democrat.

    Never happen. Just like dozens of other states who want to "split" due to differing influences by urban versus rural voters, I don't believe we will see an expanding of the 50 states (or 57, if you're a certain democrat) in the near future.
    Besides, I'd rather see the 50 states become 3 states.
    The Christian conservative state.
    The Liberal progressive state.
    And the remaining people who have common sense state.
    LOL

    His fiscal policies are destructive. California could finally wake up and realize that the government isn't going to feed, clothe and shelter everyone.

    The whole SF marriage license appeared as a sort of arrogance, which is a flaw of newsom, but this act of civil disobedience kept the issue on the table long enough for ppl to warm up to it.

    I really like what I hear from Gavin Newsome in the few interviews and shows I've seen him on.
    But what really strikes me is the CA prop 208 thing.
    Minorities tend to be religious and religious people tend to be anti-gay rights. They simply don't want to see their definition of marriage to be morally equal to that of people who don't subscribe to the Biblical idea of marriage. Its a tough sell to the devoutly religious. And even when tSOTUS rules it a constitutional right, there will be backlash forever just like what we see with Roe v Wade.
    The issue simply will never be settled. The Bible, in no ambiguous way, dislikes gay people. As long as there are people who read the Bible, there will be people against gay marriage.
    I should point out, to my my thoughts completely clear, that the SOTUS will rule bans against gay marriage unconstitutional because it is. It is clearly a violation of equal protection under the law. Let me put it in the context the court will look at it as. The court will view marriage, be it hetero or homosexual, as basically legal privilege granted to the respective spouses. They will not consider whether it is ethically or morally right or wrong or equivalent to hetero marriages. It basically comes down to this: If you want to marry someone of the same gender, why should you not enjoy the same rights or privileges as the hetero couple. If a lesbian couple lives together for 50 years, one of them dies, should we apply a different estate tax to them than the heteros who have done the same exact thing? Equal protection under the law.
    And even though I am a liberal, and even though I believe homosexuals should be allowed to marry, I really find them to be unpleasant people for a myriad of reasons.

    Sex orientation holds no sway with my voting. If he does the things that benefit me, he gets it. If he doesn't, he won't. I don't vote my whims, I vote my pocketbook because I can't afford not to.

    Obviously he is talking about Armageddon.

    As long as he avoids the classic errors (waking up with a dead hooker or a live boy) I'd expect Lt Gov Newsom will have a long, successful career in California politics. National, though? That remains to be seen.

    Of course,... being a drunk and screwing his best friend's wife.Those are resume enhancements for the left. Just as long as you tow the party line.
