Why was this not on the news?

I want to know why this news conference wasn’t shown on the news.  It looks to me like the liberal media is trying to stifle free speech.  I can’t believe this next video was not show on the national news.  It is totally appalling.

Please write the networks to let them know as journalists it is their duty to present all the facts in an unbiased manner.

Is Marriage Really A Civil Right?

This is what I don’t understand, how is marriage a civil right?

To get married you need a license.  To get any kind of license you have to meet certain requirements.  The two main requirements for have always been: You have to be the appropriate age for the state in which you plan to get married, and you need a husband(man) and a wife(woman).  Those who are in a committed same gender relationship, do not meet those requirements.  That is why they are not allowed to get married.  It is not because they are being discriminated against or their civil rights are being violated.  They simply do not meet the requirements.  If they did, there would not have been such a mad rush to change the actual marriage license and all the paperwork pertaining to it, when the California supreme court over turned Prop. 22.

Would you argue that a blind person’s civil rights are being violated because they born that way and can not obtain a drivers license?    Absolutely not.  There are certain requirements for obtaining a drivers license, and I think we all know that being able to see is by far the most important one.  But if you apply the same logic to this issue, that gay rights activist apply to marriage, then a blind person MUST be allowed to receive a driver license, because it isn’t his fault that he was born that way.  It doesn’t matter how it will affect anyone else, his civil rights are being violated.

These definition was obtained from dictionary.com:

civil rights
pl.n.   The rights belonging to an individual by virtue of citizenship, especially the fundamental freedoms and privileges guaranteed by the 13th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and by subsequent acts of Congress, including civil liberties, due process, equal protection of the laws, and freedom from discrimination.


Please look at this objectively at this issue.   Proposition 8 does not discriminate or take away the rights of anyone.  Under California Family code 297.5 is states Very clearly that registered domestic partners have all the same rights and privileges as spouses.  Check it out for yourself:

If we start making accomidations to special interest groups under the guise of civil rights, where do we draw the line?
