    The picture with the three girls is a joy to look at. What wonderful parents they must have too.

    And now for the rest of the story: at this very same rally, Rep. Sandack respectfully reaffirmed his commitment to vote FOR marriage equality.

    Yes Andrew and, per usual, the strong show of opposition is cut out. Please NOM bloggers go on-line and listen to Rep. Sandack as he respectfully pledges his support for marriage equality. And, follow up on his comments to the rally by reading his position which is so compelling because it's based on reason and not on hate.

    Cute kids. They're lucky to have a mom and dad. I'd like to believe that this outpouring of support for true marriage will have an effect on wavering legislators. But, sadly, so many of them make decisions based on cheap sentimentality and cash rather than reason.

    Barb, cheap sentimentality is what you just delivered in your post. Your selfish and elitist attitude about what constitutes the best family construct for children is exactly what drives legislative realists to call you out as unrealistic and no real friend of so many children and their family needs. Just think how limited a citizen you are because you take no opportunity to truly see the wonderful family constructs that occur in gay families.

    Regardless of how small it may seem in the eyes of the left and media, it is striking that despite all this "support" for redefining Marriage is touted, the true definition of Marriage draws crowds of support that spans all demographics and age groups.
