THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SUPPORTING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE! Noone did any gay bashing. This is out-of-proportion to distract from the miserable shape of the U.S economy prolonged by the blunders of the current administration. Devide and conquer seems to be the chief mode-of-operation of this president. Don't fall for it. Lets get back to the real problems, jobs, the economy, finances, decency and integrity in government.
