      Catherine, People have the right to a common sense discussion. that being said, I am in favor of two people living together no matter who they are but trying to impose what they want to do on society is not the same thing. you show and try to explain these myths about constitutional rights that couples should have, such as gay mairrage having to do with religious freedom. an accepted lifestyle in modern society , CNN is one of the most ignorant and biased liberal cable channels that there is. you then go to biase your views by showing a graph with outlandish assumptions in your favor. I believe that if two PEOPLE , nomatter if they are of the same sex or not want to live together that is thier business. but to try to impose their lifestyle on the populace and society's view of what is normal family lifestyle is wrong. But you have every right to try.

      Thanks for a great discussion.I am not making a judgement on anyone.
