Really Miley? I am starting to think she changes orientation so much for the attention. She needs to figure this stuff out and not just keep coming out as one thing and then another. And I won't even get into how disapointing Texas has been lately.

I thought that it was common knowledge that Francis disapproved of gay marriage. He only agreed to civil unions when he realized that he was going to lose.

Omg can I please save myself & my children from the Bible thumpers?!? Some of the best human beings I have in my life are homosexual & in very happy, loving, & thriving relationships & families. Some of the WORST excuses for human beings I know are hetero "christian", muslim, & jehovas. Adulterers, child molesters, spouse abusers, & bigots. Very FEW people are really Christians anymore & practice it how I'm guessing it was intended in the beginning. I was always told that Jesus taught love, acceptance, & tolerance of all beings. Complete opposite of what's demonstrated here. People hide behind these "morals" in order to take view off of their own sick lives & point fingers at others. So sick.

Can you guess which four GOP presidential candidates the National Organization For Marriage has actually convinced to sign its preposterous anti-gay marriage pledge?
