Obama "evolved" when he saw more votes on the other side.

I consider myself a friend of the person in the cube next to me who grew up male but changed to female. She described to me how she felt as a kid and I can understand. Others around me may be gay - I more »

Who cares 1940 - You are getting defensive for no reason. I did not distinguish between gay and heterosexual parents. I distinguished between those focused just on each other and couples who are foc more »

So, who-cares-1940, are you saying that gay marriages don't end in divorce too? Planning on and having a family is a goal that two people can get together on. Are you saying that is a bad thing? Ar more »

When two people are united with a primary focus on each other, what difference does it make whether they are same sex or different? To take issue with this - to make a distinction between same sex or more »

I graduated from a Hyde Park parochial school in 1955 and went downtown to school at Boston Technical High because Hyde Park high was so bad. Tech had college prep for those who, like me, wanted to b more »

There is a lot of depth behind church teachings, but intelligent readers may differ. Still, calling the teachings lies reveals a lack of investigation of sources.

One can be well educated with the likes of Augustan, Thomas Aquinas, Fr. Robert Barron, Chesterton, Pope Benedict's Jesus of Nazareth series - not exactly lightweights.

The first lesbian friend was married to a man, then divorced and now lives with a woman, - don't know if they are married. The second is actually not gay but transgender and had a sex change operatio more »

I do know them and we do small talk or talk shop but don't get into needless debates on these issues. Neither they nor I want to go there. It's just a dead end. ...and they are not filled with hat more »

Then "hate rhetoric" will continue until then? There are gays in my workplace that I consider friends. The issue of marriage for gays should not be considered an issue the Church can change because i more »

I am not a religious zealot so don't call me one please and please no other names. Most of my friends are secular anti-religious. Some are Jewish and although I am not, I like to go to a Kosher del more »

Scott, Good to mention her orientation and roll in DOMA - there is one hateful category of response you didn't mention. CRS used to have an adoption service in Massachusetts but, because their religi more »

I don't think you know any of these supporters of DOMA. They are mostly (but not all) of some religion but are not thereby fanatics just because of their positions. Labeling people because of their more »

eastbrewster - actually it takes guts to be a true believer too, even in the sexual orientation debate, regardless of which side you are on. Those demonstrating for DOMA were regularly spat on, had d more »

Being gay should not be a factor in her work. That said, I disagree with her on DOMA - not that it matters.

MNMoore, I had an MRI request for my knee but it took several phone calls to the Orthopedic Center to find my cost and co-pay. When they said it would be $1,400, I said I would shop around. When I fou more »

We need health insurance the same as we need a road in front of where we live, regardless of how much money we earn. The ACA was designed to provide for competition within the scope of services provid more »

I liked this article. I don't think it was intended to provide an overview of bulying, just to point out that it is not new as evidenced by instances of bullying in past works of literature. I especia more »

Sexual pleasure taken is rape. But I agree that receiving properly and willingly would improve many marriages. But these are ideals. more »

What the Pope is doing and saying is all good. But it should be noted that he knows that relationships based only on using people for what they can provide you right now will fail in the long run. Thi more »
