  1. You mean, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo. Mario was his dad. I wish we still had Mario!

  2. Why are the LGBT folks at the DNC telling reporters they want “religion reformed” so it’s “inclusive” to their lifestyle?

    I am an Independent. I have NO issues with the Progressive-liberal platform of “gay marriage” and “gay rights”, BUT I don’t think that the Judeo-Christian, Muslim or Protestant-Catholic religions, for example, should be forced to accept, invite and bless these marriages.

    You can’t “reform” the BIBLE.
    You can’t “reform” the TORAH.
    You can’t “reform” the KORAN.

    JUST because they don’t agree with you. That’s the definition of INSANITY. Religion is NOT the LAW. It’s not a series of books to RE-WRITE after a vote!!

    What the Progressives label as “cultural bias” others call their RELIGION. And one of the fundamentals of the foundation of America was the freedom to practice it and not be PERSECUTED!

    Why can’t the LGBT community get over themselves and just push for legalizing gay marriage everywhere? Why must they FORCE churches to not only marry them, but to bless that marriage with a Bible, Torah or Koran? These books do not recognize gay marriage nor condone it. So why PUSH to force their followers to not only accept it, but to BLESS it.

    The LGBT community should be able to have their marriages or unions, but you can’t FORCE Priests, Rabbis, Pastors and such to BLESS their unions with HOLY books that teach that it is sin.

    It’s like trying to force someone to LIKE you when you are a child. I don’t see the sense in it. Let these religions be as they are, you can’t REVISE religion like we have our HISTORY books just because it makes you feel better or you disagree with it. That’s effete and immature much as the clique games played in grade school.

    God Bless America.
