If the GOP wants to go for the communist marriage and thta is what the comunists wanted to do and prmote back in the 60’s then fine but don;t ever tell the base we should accept it nor will they ever get this family;s vote and many more like me around here.

They deny others on their marriage but want marriage defined for themselves, hypocrites and sick attention seekers

Well, that was quite a reality check. Thanks.

All right, then.

I’ll shoulder my Cross and keep walking toward His victory. (And stop the whining) :)

BTW, are you a pastor?

You can marry (Gin to Tonic) (Gin to Orange Juice) (Gin to Vermouth) but you cannot marry an olive to an olive, all you get are two olives.

Suddenly I’m thirsty, hey looky there - a perfect Martini.

A marital bliss, indeed.
