Question of the Day

Do you agree with Sen. Portman that same-sex marriage should be legal?

66.32% YES
33.67% NO

Comment: In this day and age, all should be treated equal. from Xenia, Ohio by Angela

Comment: To each his or her own!!!!! from Lakeview Ohio by Mike

Comment: Its sad that it took his son coming out to change his mind from Dayton, Ohio by Amanda

Comment: I think if two people are inlove, & want to get married let them. It's no one business, but theirs. from Kettering, Ohio by Shannon

Comment: 2 consenting adults fall in love and want to get married. Why is this illegal again? Oh yeah, religion has infiltrated our government to the extent of denying what should be universal human rights to every person under law. Allowing this to pass isn't taking away anyone else's rights. Know what gay marriage is going to do to my straight marriage? ..Nothing. I'll still be married. *GASP!* This should be a no-brainer, folks. Whether you agree with it morally is not the issue. The issue is the law and the law does not discriminate. Period. from Kettering, Ohio by Samantha

Comment: Ohio needs to be on the right side of history. Yes to same-sex marriage. from Salina, KS by Matt

Comment: We should all be able to live in this country that we pride ourselves on freedom, to love and marry whoever we choose. Its a new generation, its time to break away from all of this discrimination. We're all American and human

Comment: Everyone should be allowed to be married if they want to be. Not allowing it prevents homosexuals from being treated as equals in society, including being kept out of hospital emergency areas when their partner is sick. from Kettering OH by Beth

Comment: While I commend him for his change of heart, I find it interesting that he was against it when it was someone else's son, but for it when its his. He coSponsored DOMA when he was in congress adding discrimination to the laws of our counrty. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, he doesn't like it. from dayton ohio by Will

Comment: they are tax paying citizens they should have the same rights as everyone else. from Miamisburg, Ohio by Gloria

Comment: I'm pleased to see whenever a member of government moves toward a kinder, gentler position toward others. from Dayton, OH by Sam

Comment: When two people share real love and commitment that should honored and respected. God made us all as we are. We cannot change that. We should acknowledge that all is from God and respect that. (Pedophiles of any persuasion are a different story.) from Cedarville, Ohio by Christine

Comment: As the parent of a gay child & a member of Equality Springfield I've long been an advocate of everyone's right to love who they choose. from Springfield, Ohio by Joy

Comment: Thank God! Come on Ohio, get with it! from Ohio by Chris

Comment: We should have the right to be just as miserable as any other straight married couple! People don't fully understand how hard it really is when we do not receive equal rights. Especially on a federal level. I can not receive any benefits at all from my military spouse. When we start a family it will be even more difficult. Gay marriage does not have any effect on anyone else. It just makes us equal in the eyes of the law and America. from Beavercreek OH by Kimberly

Comment: I have yet to hear any argument against the legalization of gay marriage that is not based in religious belief. In a free country, we should have the right to make our decisions for ourselves and our families based on our own beliefs, free from intrusion from the religious beliefs of others. from Dayton by Michael

Comment: I see several comments regarding religious standpoints...we are not trying to be recognized in the eyes of God or in a church, merely to have the same equal rights that straight people are entitled to. I am gay and a Christian, but religion and state are two very separate issues. from Dayton OH by Erin

Comment: If two people are in love and want to be together forever, who are we to judge them? That is left to the Lord. They deserve to have the same rights as everyone else. from Kettering by Jason

Comment: These people make such a big deal about gay marriage. I dont care who wants to get married to who.WE are making a big deal out of things that we shouldnt be making a big deal about. They speak about 'sanctity' ...dont give me that crap! Just give everyone the chance to have the life they want and deserve. from Yellow springs by Rene

Comment: Same sex marriages are not recognized in the eyes of God! Only marriage between a man and a woman are recognizedby God. from Dayton, OH by Kathy G.

Comment: its just not right from ohio

Comment: Homosexuality is a SIN against God's Law. It will bring God's judgment on this nation. from Cedarville,Ohio by Dennis

Comment: NO! from Fairborn, Oh. by JIM

Comment: marriage should be between a man and a women from camden ohio by todd

Comment: I am so sorry to hear this! I know he loves his son, but he should have stood up for his convictions, which must not have been very strong on this issue to start with! from Huber Heights, OH by Mart

Comment: How can a person change their mind once they are elected. I feel he lied to get my votes. He evidently was not what he said he was, nor does he believe in the same Bible that he said he did, so I am greatly disappointed in him. I would never vote for him again. from Piqua, Ohio by Ronald

Comment: Just because your family member is gay, does not mean you should lie to the public and change your view of a very controversial subject. So, if your son was to murder someone would you believe that is okay too. ???? from Piqua,Ohio by Therese

Comment: I think, that it is agaisnt God's Law . It clearly says in the Bible that men and women are to not marry the same gender . God made Adam and Eve NOT Adam and Steve. I think this is a trend and you are being sucked into it becasue it is his son. When your son was not involved you had the same opinion as I do. Now, because of your son you changed, you falsley got votes on opinions that should not change like the sun rises and falls. from piqua,ohio by cassidy

Comment: Men and women need to realize this is a trend . In 50 years our country is going to be the laughing stock of the world. Wonder if our new Pope will change his mind too. from Piqua,Ohio by Ann

Comment: We didn't elect Portman to represent his son's interests. He's supposed to represent his constituents. Will he ask us what we think? I'm very disappointed and I will no longer vote for him. from New Carlisle, Oh by Al

Comment: gay marriage is wrong from eaton by tom

Comment: I absolutely do not agree with Sen. Portman's stance on Gay Marriage. Is he a cattail rod in the wind? from Centerville, Ohio by C.A.
