How would you feel if your spouse said, “I only got married in an act of defiance against the president.” Even worse, how would you feel if your spouse was Rosie O’Donnell?

Recently Rosie O’Donnell said she got married just to spite George W. Bush:

George Bush, in the middle of a war, had an all-station news conference to announce how horrible it was for the safety of America that gay people were getting married in San Francisco, which pissed me off enough to get on a plane and go get married.

It was like an act of … defiance … If you’re gonna count up everybody who you think is not of value and round ‘em all up and slap a pink triangle on ‘em.

I just felt like I wanted to be counted amongst the people who [some] were saying were unworthy and not allowed to have the same rights as everyone else.

And Rosie’s spouse marrying her was a direct act of defiance against the “Coalition to Ban Beer Goggles.”

Doesn’t cheapening the institution of marriage in such a way sort of help validate Bush’s point? Just asking.

    I'm all for Homosexuals interning into a civil union but to get married and expect all the tax breaks and rights to be a slap in the face to the children of the married couples. Getting married implies that you will be having children and adding to the tax base hence the tax breaks. After all our children are the ones who are going to be paying for their parents medicare and such as we are paying for our parents. To not have children and expect others to cover them is an added burden on the already over taxed generations to come.

    Simple solution go have your ceremony then go to a lawyer and get a power of attorney so you can go see your loved one in the hospital. Then go to a judge and have your name legally changed. Pay your extra taxes to cover your own social security benefits.

    As far as feeling discriminated against. I'm a single white male. I have been turned down for jobs. I have been turned down help with medical bills. I have been denied college….the list goes on and on. Join the club and take it like a man discrimination is GOING to happen one way or another.

    Please leave marriage alone it belongs to a man and a woman.

    One more note I have several gay friends so don't go saying I'm anti gay.

    I don't know of any tax breaks married people get. My husband and I have paid more in taxes than we ever did single so I don't know why the gays want to be married. Everything else they can already do. They can be next of kin, they can have medical power of attorney, they can inherit from each other, they can buy a house together, etc. I would be happy if someone could explain to me why they want marriage for themselves. It seems as if they want something just because someone else has it and act like a three year old who was told no.

    And Rosie isn't worth listening to. She is as hate filled as they come.

    How much would you pay to watch a Texas Death Match between Rosie O'Donut and Roseanne Barf?
