    BUSH TO ENDORSE ANTI-MARRIAGE AMENDMENT

    According to The Washington Post, the President, as a way to "jumpstart his campaign," is about to endorse a Constitutional amendment, sponsored by Representative Marylin Musgrave (R-CO) that would ban marriage rights for same-sex couples and could forever invalidate civil unions or other legal protections for same-sex couples and their children. He is bending to pressure from anti-gay extremists who oppose every effort to secure equality for GLBT Americans.

    The Constitution typically is amended to ensure that people are treated equally and given the same rights. This amendment would prohibit certain Americans from following their own beliefs and living the way they choose. One group's set of beliefs prohibiting others from pursuing happiness is the opposite of basic American ideals.

    He - and all of our leaders - need to hear from all of us who support GLBT civil rights and marriage equality, and who oppose amending our nation's most sacred document - the U.S. Constitution. We must be as relentless as the anti-gay forces.

    So, starting today, we need your help in deluging Congress and the White House with calls, faxes, and e-mails. Here's how:

    1. Fax your members of Congress. Tell them to oppose the Musgrave anti-marriage amendment and any attempt to amend the Constitution to discriminate against GLBT Americans. click here

    2. Call the White House at 202-456-1111. Tell the President that using GLBT Americans and the U.S. Constitution for political gain is shameful. Visit this URL to let us know you called: click here

    3. Please pass this on to everyone you know -- friends, family, colleagues. We trying to get 50,000 calls to the President during the next 48 hours. Visit this URL: click here

    i really can't imagine why george could possibly be so bothered by it. i just don't get it.

    haha maybe he was gang raped in his little stint "in the military."
    :lol:

    It's pure political bullshit though, realize that only 14 states have to block this for the amendment to not pass.

    Yeah, I don't really care. It may be a difficult situation for a middle school kid to deal with, if you have gay parents. But it doesn't mean you have to be gay.

    tease,
    you are about this >---< close from being banned just for being fucking ignorant.
    say one more thing tonight that annoys me, and 'please believe' you're condemned again.

    the world is dumb enough wthout your stupid ass adding to it.



    infact, blatently ignorant homophobic remarks are about to join jay-z vs nas beef, and...ummm, i forgot the other thing, in the column of 'instant banning' issues.


    i might not be able to stop the president, but i can sure as shit stop retards on the board.

    Actually Tease deserves respect for his responce, or atleast he doesnt deserve criticism...

    Though often he is to wit what plastic bags are to breathing, he was saying "Live and let be" essentially. He was saying that he doesn't care about the issue because to him gays are not anything different for better or worse. Look at his last sentance, he says they should have the right to do as they please (in so many words). Sure he might not think well of gays but at least he respects everyones right to be who they are.
