  1. What a person does in gheir bedrooms is their business,DON’T CALL IT MARRIAGE!!
    I have nothing against gay people.They are free to live together,have civil unions.Marriage is between one man and one woman.Plan and freaking simple.
    I am sick and tired of seeing this type of thing happening to our society.I hope Governor Corbet strikes back at this and save what is truely marriage.
