Florida Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson on Thursday became the latest lawmaker to flip on the issue of gay marriage. “(T)o discriminate against one class and not another is wrong for me. If we are endowed by our Creator with rights, then why shouldn't those be attainable by Gays and Lesbians?” Nelson said in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times editorial board.

Great! Now he can "marry" the boys when they turn 18!

(The number of lawsuits by young teens is now 5. But since Clash is a black liberal, you'll never see this on the news, unlike old white Sandusky.)

I’m missing something. When did 5% (at most) of the population get a hold of everything from our educational system to all of our books, media, TV, movies, etc?

I mean, WTF is going on with this homo obsession?

"(T)o discriminate against one class and not another is wrong for me".

Umm, white/black supremacists are a class, as are pedophiles, thieves guilds, polygamist, inset lovers, mutual masturbatory groups, swingers, gangbangers (Not the street gang types) and so on, lol. His intellect is as shallow as a saucer, just like the majority of South Floridians and the I-4 corridors that elects this idiot.

Holds a lot more weight coming from a founder instead of a squirrely Dem hack like Nelson.

I guess a lot of these policiticians think that this is a great time to come out of the closet while homosexuality is wildly popular among the morons living in this country.

Easy...follow the money. Look at the per capita income of Gays/Lesbos.

Hey Bill! Please tell me what our Creator says about homosexuality? Do not attempt to use God in your support of a Godless behavior.

It’s actually between 1 to 3 percent. The Homosexual lobby has falsely increased the percentage through including disparate sexual disorders such as transgenderism and bisexualism so that they can claim their immoral desires are mainstream.

...if The Lord made homosexuals as well as heterosexuals...

Let's see, the Lord made pedophiles, thieves, and murders too so why should we condemn them and their behaviors as well?

This scumbag Nelson feels safe now. He won’t face re-election for 5+ years.
