Happy Memorial Day

As Memorial Day approaches, think about what our men and women have died for. Isn't it for the rights and liberties that we all enjoy?

Well, most of us.

13 Love Stories tells the stories of 13 gay or lesbian couples who have not been able to enjoy the same rights as others in our country.

Here are Travis and Greg.

There are other stories, too. Watch Leona and Grace

OK, one more. I can't put all 13 on here, but you can watch them from the link.

Cas and Ricky.

From the website of the California Supreme Court:

The California Supreme Court has announced that it will issue an opinion in three cases challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8 at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26, 2009. (Strauss v. Horton, S168047; Tyler v. State of California, S168066; City and County of San Francisco v. Horton, S168078.) Tuesday at 10 a.m., the opinion will be available on the California Courts Web site at this link: .

So expect a comment about that on Tuesday, around noon our time. In the meantime, have a great Memorial Day and let's remember what our guys and girls in uniform have died for.

And here's Jason Mraz and the 13 Idol contestants, "I'm Yours."

How interesting. In the story of Travis and Greg, he says that his family didn't want the children to know that they were gay because they KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG.


He also made the statement that "this is a free country but I guess not for them (gays)" Well, this is a free country. You can do or be anything you want to be. But to expect rights as a couple that live this alternative lifestyle which goes against nature is not an option.

I also find it interesting that one of them used to be married. Wow. But wait, aren't you BORN GAY. So why on earth would he have CHOSEN to marry a female? It is time that we get our country back to following absolute TRUTH.

the comment about "right and wrong" was one sister in law's misguided opinion, just as your opinions are one person's mmisguided opinions. OK yall, come on, tell me my opinions are misguided.

But at least it shows you watched videos. Great. There's hope for you yet.

And the choice to marry a female has nothing to do with one's sexual orientation. To marry is a behavior choice. Orientation is not behavior.
