"Respect for privacy and looking out for each other are Vermont values of not interfering in how each of us lives his or her life, as long as it is not harmful to others, and yet, all of us rallying to each other's defense if person or property is at risk."
Thank you, Rep. Moran.

I hope Rep. Garrecht's constituents will take a long hard look at his agenda and vote him out next time. His inability to think straight should be an alarm bell- what else is on his agenda that he'd impose if given the chance? This man hates our freedom. Would he have fought to keep slavery too?

Equal rights are for all legal citizens. Thats all I have to say with any thread that is about marriage for gay/lesbian couples.

Rev,
You have no scientific evidence to prove that homosexuality is caused by environment, or that it is a choice. Your very own words about ex-gays being, "haunted," proves that their sexual orientation is innate, they are just choosing to act against it.

For you to say with any authority that it is a choice would mean that you personally had a choice in your sexual orientation, and I can presume you chose to live a straight life. That by the way, does not mean you are straight, it means you are bisexual.

Really, the question of choice is irrelevant anyway, as is your personal religious views on it. Your religion, by the way, is most definitely a choice, and yet it is protected by law.

What a contrast in the latter two letters: one graced by reason and intelligence, the other by superstition and ignorance. That the elected official is the better guarantor of freedom is a testament to the wisdom of the voters of Vermont and a sad reflection on the congregants of the "reverend's" church.

Sometimes, when a man loves a woman, he will put bees in her vagina, and then she will need a bird to pick them out. Sometimes, while the bird is picking out the bees, it will lay an egg. This egg will become a tiny person living rent-free in your stomach for up to nine months. Eventually the tiny pewrson will come out and then you have the option to keep them in your puch for another 3 months, if desired.

When a man loves a woman, he will put bees in her most private of places, and then she will need to get a bird to peck them out. Sometimes that bird will lay an egg in her love canal and when that egg hatches, a tiny person will take up residence in the woman's belly for up to 9 months. At the end of the ninth months the tiny person must leave but the woman has the option to keep him in her pouch for an additional 3 months.

'Hope this helps!
