Ellen Degeneres Is A Newlywed

Talk show host and comedian Ellen Degeneres can add another title to her resume....newlywed.

People magazine reports Degeneres and actress Portia de Rossi were married Saturday at their Southern California home. The couple has been dating for nearly four years.

    David, I think they didn't show "they knew it all", I pretty sure they were reading from the Bible. Your atheism shows, you are the exception everywhere, remember that. You have the freedom to speech, not the freedom to get respect for it.

    Surprisingly enough being gay has nothing to do with religious beliefs. I am one of the "gay" people that think I was born this way. Why would someone chose to be so hated against? Why would someone chose to not be accepted? I want to be able to walk down the street with my partner and no one take a second look, or be able to eat in a restaurant without getting STARED down. You people act like we are monkeys in a cage meant to be watched. We are NORMAL people just like you. And to the ones who think that gay marriage is so UNACCEPTABLE, because marriage is meant to produce children, how about the marriage that produces a child into an abusive home? Or how about a twenty year old getting pregnant by her husband for the fourth time? That to me is UNACCEPTABLE. I can't help who I love, nor can anyone else. And much to your disbelief me being gay isn't the only thing TO ME! Before you are so quick to judge you might want to look at yourself. No one is perfect, and besides a sin is a sin.

    Well MW, unfortunately we live in the Bible thumping south and these God lovers think that they know everything.

    Red State- What a tragic story about your friend. I am so very sorry. You touched on a good point. The urge for companionship that homosexuals have is just as strong as that of a heterosexual. Imagine if someone dictated to you, a heterosexual, that you could not marry a member of the opposite sex because homosexuality was the norm. Take God out of it. Just pretend for a moment that to hold hands while walking down the street with someone of the opposite sex was seen by others as disgusting. Pretend that you are despised and treated horribly over something you have no control over. That is what homosexuals face every day. In order for others to treat them with respect, they have no companionship or they participate in a relationship that goes against every fiber of their being. Or they have the companionship that they feel is right for them and are constantly ridiculed. Do what you feel is right in your life and let others do what they feel is right in theirs.

    Hello Red State, while I can sympathize with you over a loss, I had a college friend die of Aids from his sexual preference. He made no quarms about his being gay. I never had a problem with it, just that it killed him with a miserable death. He never identified who had given it to him or when as the disease can stay dormant for many years. This is my only gripe about it being acceptable. Everybody thinks its OK in todays society but it isn't. They practice their behavior in an openess that it is OK and safe. This can be said about anytype, even heterosexual. And "me", its called freedom of speech. If you have a problem with freedom of speech you can go to China where opinions are punished. Witn is doing the right thing. If you find it offensive you can click off something else. That is your freedom to do so.

    Why does God get pulled into 90% of these stories??? we pray to a god we never seen, but never fail to side with him... I dont get it.?. God had nothing to do with these 2 women getting married.. so why drag him into it?

    Wait. Is this discussion we're having about same sex marraige (should it be legal or not) or about homosexuality (is it a choice or not)? Different discussions, and as I looked back through the posts, it seems there are some about each.

    As a christian, I can see some points to both sides of this debate. I understand how Christians believe that if you believe one part of the Bible, you have to believe the whole thing and the Bible does say that homosexuality is a sin. However, the old testament also says that we should not eat shellfish and wear clothing of mixed fibers or cut our hair, etc. I think that if most of you had a close friend, as I did, who was so tormented by his attraction to members of his same gender, that he committed suicide at the age of 19, you might look at this differently. He had always been taught in church that it was an abomination to God, but he couldn't help it. He certainly did not choose the pain and guilt he felt and was sitting in his car at church when he killed himself, another unforgiveable sin I guess. I miss him and if he had just held out a few more years to see how much things have changed, the world would be better off with him in it. True love among human beings is never wrong.
