Quote:The biggest tech companies in the world are standing up for same-sex marriage, but not just as a matter of fairness. Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft are just a few of hundreds of companies that have signed on to a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that federal same-sex marriage restrictions hurt their businesses.

In all, 278 companies joined to support the friend-of-the-court filing, among them some of the country’s biggest and most visible. Other tech companies listed as backers of the brief include Adobe, Cisco, eBay, Electronic Arts, Intel, Intuit, Oracle, Twitter and Zynga.

And tech companies aren’t the only ones getting behind the push to overturn the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Some of the biggest non-tech names include Citigroup, Johnson & Johnson, Goldman Sachs, Nike, CBS Corp., Starbucks and Disney.

All of the companies signed on to the filing are located or operate in states where same-sex marriages are legal or recognized, according to the brief. The conflict between those laws and DOMA, which bars federal recognition of same-sex marriage, needlessly burdens those companies with extra costs and bureaucratic tangles, the filing argues. In effect, DOMA puts the companies in a position that “forces us to treat one class of our lawfully married employees differently than another, when our success depends upon the welfare and morale of all employees.”
All companies are in lockstep with the agenda. If you are not, you will not be allowed to succeed.

Look what happened with Chik-Fil-A

People should have a right to their opinions. Anti-homosexuality has a higher genetic loading than homosexuality. Interesting huh?
Quote:Same-sex couples who live together are more likely to judge themselves as being in poor or fair health than are married heterosexual couples, according to a new study.

The paper, published Tuesday in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, examined data in the National Health Interview Surveys from 1997 to 2009. A total of 686,846 survey respondents between the ages of 18 to 65 were asked to describe their relationship status, as well as rate their own health as either poor, fair, good, very good, or excellent.

After comparing survey responses, authors concluded that cohabiting homosexual couples were more likely to report themselves as being in poor or fair health when compared with heterosexual married couples.

Hui Liu, lead study author and an assistant professor of sociology at Michigan State, said in a press statement that gay, cohabiting men were 61% more likely than straight married men to say they were in poor or fair health. Lesbian women were 46% more likely to say they were in poor or fair health than straight, married women.

Negative effect on emotional well being.
