    What clowns these politicians…they are totally aware of the fact that their actions are for political gain only, pandering to the electoral base that keeps them in office. When same-sex marriage comes to their states by any other means than by their consent, they will capitulate but only after spending millions in tax payer funds to fight a ruling they know they will lose. What hateful people do they serve…Pastor Phelps comes to mind!
