Jon is way off the mark. The ruling of the Iowa Supreme Court is not “gay friendly” but a consequent application of our Federal Constitution in my opinion.

My state of Texas does not give driver licenses to any person that is not 16 years old. Is my state therefore “adolescent unfriendly” Jon? Stick to comedy please and stop peddling your obviously gigantic ignorance of legal matters.

The ruling of the Iowa court also shows that Clonakilty32’s remark “I also believe in letting the individual states decide on gay marriage” is dangerous nonsense. If a State Constitution violates the Federal Constitution, which is what the Iowa ruling clearly stated is the case here, that State tramples on our country’s laws. Is that what you advocate Clonakilty32?

Jon Stewart is hilarious. I love watching him.

As for gays wanting to marry, they should be entitled to the emotional hell and agony that we all endure in the sanctity of marriage. More power to ‘em.

I also believe in letting the individual states decide on gay marriage.  I am against a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.  I won’t march with them in demonstrations but I will vote for for them.  I do not believe that any citizen of this country should be discriminated against for sexual orientation and are entitled to any and all rights of every other citizen of this country.

why don’t all states do this thing, and then we could get to real problems.
