The subject of gay marriage is one near and dear to Amanda’s heart and should be a vital concern for all of us in the community.
Amanda believes (strongly) that we need the right to marry – NOT to “be just like straight people” but to have the loving and long lasting relationships we find ourselves in sanctioned and validated by society (not that Amanda believes society has been a good judge of what is right and wrong up to this point). And God forbid we have “marriage that is identical to theirs”. Marriages in the straight community fail at a rate higher than 50% and then they blame us for demise of marriage and the family – STRAIGNT PEOPLE WAKE UP.
First of all lets get some definitions cleared up.
A wedding is a religious ceremony – actually a worship service within which two people become united into a couple. In the US we have unfortunately considered this a marriage and that has caused many to drag along a religious reason to object to gay couples tying the knot in a religious service. Amanda feels this is unfortunate. It is America and if the Baptist church doesn’t want to marry Amanda and her partner (If she had one – always looking – and please excuse the personal reference) then good for them – no one will make them do it. There are a number of denominations that will allow same gender ceremonies, the United Church of Christ being one WAY out in front.
A marriage really is a legal contract between two people that is defined and sanctioned by the government and in this light should, by common sense, be a right of anyone living in that governmental unit who wants to take advantage of that right and therefore gain the rights AND responsibilities afforded others.
Now that Amanda has defined the process for you allow her to shed some light into your overly non-conformist little heart. Get over yourself!! People should and do have the right to live anyway they wish, in singles, groups, couples and they have the opportunity to call it anything they wish. People who do not believe in the concept of marriage – DONT DO IT. Much like the old abortion slogan – If you Don’t Believe in Abortion – Don’t Have One.
For those of us who would like to be in committed relationships and receive the benefits of said relationship AND fulfill the responsibilities of that relationship – we should have that right.
To answer your question – middle ground? on this subject? That may not exist. But Amanda is very VERY adamant about this – if people within our own community fight the right that so many of us desire we will never win the battle of equality. This has been evident in most of the human rights battles we have fought. We rarely come together as a community to fight for our rights – we have so many subgroups who dilute the battle with personal causes and specific agendas that we rarely win. Our opponents are united in one objective – deny us rights – thus – they most often win.
The gay community needs to come together to fight for rights – the same rights everyone else has. Amanda has the right to own a cat – She doesn’t (thank God) but She believe you do have that right and would fight for it – right next to you, if that were necessary.
Get on board this fight – and if you don’t believe in it working in your life – don’t participate in the right when it is achieved – but PLEASAE do not help the other side by standing with them.

I asked coach Flickenger, when did you start doing stats for the football team. Cramping Tendonitis: Biomechanical and structural problems within the foot tend to manifest as shin splints, arch cramping, plantar fasciitis and/or tendinitis. Less experienced runners tend to develop these problems and is commonly the result of training past the capabilities of your foot. Bass, Cole Haan, UGG Knightsbridge Sebago and Dexter are now made abroad. Bean created the hunting UGG Classic Tall for himself after his feet got wet and cold on a hunting trip, and it was not an instant success. And he, you know, laughingly said: Do CEOs hold meetings in the bathroom? No. I mean, we understand it’s not a regular situation. “The Incredible Crash Dummies” was a source of much frustration for kids as its primary function was to break. Evidently, a Tyco big wig thought, “You know what? All these little fuckers are just gonna keep breaking everything we put out Cheap ray bans
and blame us for shoddy manufacturing anyway, so why don’t we flip the so called script and make a toy that embraces our incompetence and uses it as its selling point!”. Contrary to A. Gambiae, AfCYP6M1 is triplicated in A. But no, it never really touches the main character. On the few occasions when Breaking Bad does show someone adversely affected by meth abuse, they’re portrayed as someone so incompetent or vile that they were going to fail in life regardless of their chosen vice. By him only him or her only being able to hold the ball for six seconds, this allows for that team not to be able to waste time. If a team is up one or two nothing at the end of a game, and a goalkeeper makes a save, it would be preferable if the goalkeeper could hold the ball for longer than six seconds to waste as much time as possible.

course, it’s important to note that the survey only determined people’s weights in regard to their ideal weight not their healthy weight, which differs from person to person. One possible way to calculate your healthy weight is to know your body mass index (BMI), which is a ratio of height to weight.
