So in other words, he lied to his voters. If it wasn't an issue why didn't he tell them before they voted. Might not have gotten him the office he now sets in?

All this gay marraige crap is just the secular liberals current social issue to champion. The libbies will push this agenda and the press will eagerly follow along like the lapdogs they are. Most of us who believe marriage is God's design and still between a man and a woman have agreed that gays should have some legal system of civil unions. That is fair and equal treatment. They can have all the legal protections and allowances that a "marriage" provides within the framework of a civil union contract. But that is not enough for the gays and the libbies. They want to show that a homosexual relationship is just as "Normal" as a heterosexual one. Ane those of us who believe in God don't believe that. And it's not just a Christian belief. All the major religions tout similar doctrine regarding homosexuality. Are we seeing the challenges to our beliefs that is a harbinger to the end of days?

I guess we now know who's going to be pushing for Homosexual marriage. Maybe I'm wrong,but if it's wrong in God's eyes,it's pretty much wrong.
