I am a right wing, conservative, straight ,old white man and I completely agree with you.
Rights are either rights for everyone or no one!
I disagree with the LGBT lifestyle but consider what works for others to be NONE of my business unless it adversly effects MY rights.
Generally I don’t believe LGBT rights will do that.
Government should stick to doing the least damage possible to its citizens .
On the other hand we really MUST control our borders.
After five days of debates and amendment hearings, we’ve finally got a bipartisan immigration bill ready to pass to the senate floor.
The only problem?
The new bill allows citizens to acquire a green card for their husband or wife — but only in a traditional marriage. LGBT couples cannot acquire a green card.
Democrats allowed the amendment to be dropped because they thought it was not worth the potential loss of conservative support.
As Mr. Graham stated: “You have me on immigration. You don’t have me on marriage. If you want to keep me on immigration, lets stay on immigration.”
Mr. Leahy may push for the LGBT amendment once more when the bill passes the senate floor. Do you think this is a good idea?
Heres some more info on the bill:
I think its outrageous that in 2013 we still have this kind of discrimination. I support the LGBT community and its efforts for the community to accept them. Will you support the Amendment? Do you think this is outrageous as well?

I am extremely tired of this whole argument. JUST LET THEM HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS. I don’t understand why everyone cares so much what other people do with their lives, sexual partners, etc. Conservatives and Republicans: You claim to be small government and want government out of your lives? Well then practice what you preach, here is your chance. Give gays equal rights. I think its great that @Grand-Vizier is courageous enough as a self proclaimed right winger to announce his support for equal rights for everyone. Go Gary!
The argument that there will be more fraud if we allow immigrants to come to the United States through same sex marriage is stupid. Sorry, but just because two men or two women can get married doesn’t change the fact that anyone can commit fraud. A man and a women are just as likely to commit immigration fraud as two men or two women. Get over it people. Let the LGBT community do what they want, and give them the same rights that you enjoy.
