Comments on HR 8404

Cristopher Mendoza wrote 1 month ago

I truly hope it passes because why should we have less Rights then heterosexual couples. I quote our decoration of independence " all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." So why should we have our Happyness taken, just because conservatives are " holding Christian value." If that's true doesn't Christ say " love your neighbor" but i digress because i also feel that church and state should always remain sperate. So I beg you to vote yes allow us our happiness. Or come November we will show our disapproval with our vote.
