Everybody always asks, "what's wrong with this country?" Well, that's just it. Used to be there was a stigma placed on girls who did it with all the boys - nowadays it's fashionable to be the school tramp. Getting pregnant out of wedlock was deeply frowned upon, but today it's practically encouraged. Same can be said of homosexuality. This blatant push by the fringe to basically throw morality down the toilet is one major thing that is wrong with this country. I'm not saying this has anything to do with religion, but granted, the country as a whole was a bit more religious back then. Wish it was true today.

Who cares if 2 men or women marry each other? How does it affect...?

By giving credence to an immoral way of life and saying it's okay and acceptable it greatly devalues any moral base this country was founded upon. Sorry, I don't want to go down that road. What 2 men or 2 women do in the privacy of their own home I could care less, but don't push it on everyone like it's a good and decent life choice.

Hard to believe even Iowa is ahead of PA in this! If marriage is a commitment of two people in love, and the state government gives benefits to those who commit to another (e.g. taxes), then it must logically follow that all citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania who wish to commit to another must enjoy those benefits. Regardless of the sex of those involved, a commitment is a commitment and the state should recognize that commitment.

Pushing a degenerate lifestyle has become fashionable. These cowards in politics pander to the very small minority of gays. They are too weak to draw a line in the sand between right and wrong. Pathetic. Americans love our money but ignore "In God we trust" printed on it.. Sorry but the Bible is very clear that homosexuality is wrong. Its so clear that its not even left to any interpretation. To tolerate something doesn't mean you have to accept it or believe it is right. You certainly don't have to give in to its agenda because it may have a tantrum..

Who cares? So two men or women are married. How in any way does that negatively impact anyone? I don't even understand how gay marriage is newsworthy.

"County attorneys for Montgomery County clerk D. Bruce Hanes said he has a sworn duty to uphold the Pennsylvania and U.S. constitutions - and Pennsylvania's law banning same-sex marriage violates both, they argued."

WHERE, in the U.S. Constitution, does it specify the criminalization of Gay-marriage??
