    Default Barney Frank to Marry Longtime BF

    Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) intends to marry his longtime partner, Jim Ready,..."
    Barney Frank Marriage: Retiring Congressman Intends To Marry Longtime Partner Jim Ready
    Frank came out publicly as gay in 1987, blazing the trail for other openly gay public officials.

    Frank met Ready in October 2005 at a fundraiser in Maine. After Ready's partner died in January 2007, the two began a relationship.

    Frank expanded on setting a personal example for gay rights in a recent interview with the Boston Globe."It's one thing to say 'I'm not prejudiced against a person who is a gay,'" he said. "It's an entirely different matter to accept that person in their personal relationships. So over the past five years or so, Jimmy [Ready], my partner, and I have made it a point to attend events together, to go to public places as a couple. It's important that people see that."

    Hey beanie, just a few questions as this one really has me scratching my head.....Was this vast knowledge of gay couples and their relations gained through personal experience or some other form of learning? If there is some type of higher learning academy, could you please post a link so the other members can view it? If possible, could you elaborate on other forms of role playing also? I for one would enjoy your in depth explanation on the ins and outs of role playing.

    I think his role as mother queen is a good one. As far as a link one I have is my Catholic upbringing. The church, the Pope are adamantly against same sex marriage as most Americans are according to a capitalisticpig.com survey. relax just kidding. The Obama administration's attempt to force some of this crap down religions throat yet again went to the Supreme Court for a decision.

    here's a good link..read it and weep
    David Skeel: On Religious Freedom, Years of Battles Ahead - WSJ.com
    The high court calls for accommodating religion. The White House pushes back.
    the only president to need the high courts okay on his ultra-liberal, illegal bs only to lose every time


    the other loser_____

    bean, you all know I am Catholic as it is personal but not private. It is part of who I am so I am open about it. The church teaches us to love the sinner, not the sin, no matter what that sin may be that we are talking about. Personally, I don't agree with the whole homosexual idea but I know homosexual people and happen to respect these people, therefore you will not find me making fun of them or being cruel to them. I don't think the church would find that o.k but comitting another sin in making fun of homosexuals.

    Well, you know what I mean, like I could care less about the Kardashians, Brad and Angolina, so I could less about Barney either and whether he is gay or straight.

    That was my point. I never understood the celebrity watching crowd. I dont care what the "problems" of the rich and famous are. They haven't a clue how the real world functions.
    They just jet from one party to another, while the media reports their every hiccup like it was real news.
