Senate Rejects Bid for Marriage Amendment

Wednesday, July 14, 2004

For Gays & Lesbians, the issue has already been around for a long time.

I think it's been around for a long time for a lot of us.

I wish they would let this chase for the amendment die and great equal rights to everyone.

It will come up again next year if we send a Republican majority to the Senate and President Bush back to the presidency this fall.

Its up to America to decide.

In my opinion, if we decide the better route - Kerry will focus on moving this nation forward on issues that don't divide us.
