While declining to express her own opinions about gay marriages, Mrs. Bush said, "It's an issue that people want to talk about and not want the Massachusetts Supreme Court, or the mayor of San Francisco to make their choice for them. I know that's what the president thinks.
Excuse me? Make their choice for them? Make their choice?
See, you don't get it. This isn't your choice or their choice to make. I don't let straight bigots make my choices for me. And exactly when did the President start thinking?
"I'm watching very carefully. But I'm troubled by what I've seen," [President] Bush said. "People need to be involved with this decision. Marriage ought to be defined by the people, not by the courts."
No, yet again, you miss the point. Marriage should be defined by the two people involved in getting married not you, nor any group who thinks it okay to discriminate against certain groups of people.

You, and your religious extremist ilk, have perverted it into little more than an evangelical group of bigots hell bent on shoving a homophobic "godhatesfags.com" morality down everyone's throats while simultaneously furthering the destruction of the Republican Party and harming the country.
The Oval Office isn't a pulpit, Rev. Bush. Stop preaching and start doing your job, or get the hell out of the people's house.
...and from yesterday's news:
