    Heterosexual people have done enough damage to the “sacred institution of marriage” to render the term meaningless


    Civil Unions for everyone is the answer


    Let the government have their piece of paper signifying that two people have made a legal commitment to each other and then the churches can sort out who is allowed to be “married” and who is not

    I agree with the two comments above, but I don’t get the last panel.

    She was talking about the kardashians, not gay marriage.

    Last panel= No more phone calls please, we have a winner. Sadly, one can marry this strip with todays Non Sequitur and it would be a great commentary on today’s society.

    If you consider marriage to be the union of a man and (only one) woman for the purpose of procreation, when it comes to the Kardashians, it’s the procreation part that’s scary.

    I never thought the president (or the first lady for that matter) really deep down in their hearts support gay marriage. President Obama showed support for it to two reasons 1.) As a smart strategic move because Romney opposes it 2.) To help get the gay vote. As good a man I think Obama is, he is still a politician. As a leader, sometimes you have to lose a few battles with your own conscience just so you can win the war. And the war for Obama is Nov. 6th

    I get what you’re saying, and it is a valid observation but I think he and Michelle are too steep in their own traditional family image to really believe or think that gay marriage is right. A little voice in my head keeps telling me that if they weren’t living in the white house, or in politics for that matter, they would be sending one message to their daughters that a man is meant to be with a woman and vise-versa. Look, I’m a black man, and I know don’t about anyone else but where I’m from we look down on gay marriage. It’s not only wrong, but ungodly. But fortunately for me, I don’t use gay-marriage or the abortion issue as the determining factors as to who I choose to vote for. I vote for the person who I believe will best run this country (especially during these times) and I clearly believe that is Obama.

    As a black woman, I agree with you 100%. I didn’t vote for Obama because he’s black, I voted for him because I truly believe he will do the best job.

    Listening to Obama’s comments both before and after his term I don’t think he has changed his position much other than how he states it. Obama has always acknowledged that he personally does not believe homosexuality is ‘right’ based on his religious faith. The only difference now is his public comments concerning the issue now focus on the fact that no matter our personal views on the issue we have no right to tell others how they live their lives.

    good observation. It’s all in how you say it.

    Isn’t the precise point of ANY law to “tell people how they should live”? Or should we just be going about doing whatever we please ? Seems to me that the argument isn’t whether we should have laws, but rather where those laws should come from. Some people claim religious revelation or religious tradition, others claim custom, others some other source. We seem to have arrived at a blend of all of the above.

    When you think about it, the law defending same-sex marriage is contradictory and inconsistent with other laws that also grant people the permission to behave in sin. We can tell homosexuals, “yeah, I don’t like what you do, it’s ungodly, but there’s a law in your state that says you CAN do it anyway”. If that’s the case then what do we tell drug dealers and users? Do we say, “yeah, what you’re doing is sinful and wrong, but sorry, there’s no law that can protect you to do that”. Despite the ways you can spin it it’s still hypocrisy at its finest. Bottom line is, God created man to live simply. Good is good, bad is bad. But people have made simple principles complicated because we’re always trying to please everybody and then rationalize our own wrong-doings as acceptable. Trying to please everybody is the first step to failure. Hence, the volatile and divisive nation we have today.

    I don’t care who gets married as long as individuals are not forced to do the marriage if it is contrary to their own personal convictions. The government wants to do the job then who cares. They want to allow people to sue individual churches who refuse to do so? Then we have a problem. Gays want to get married? See the justice of the peace man. Or any church that wants to do it, that is up to them as autonomous bodies.
