It's quite possible. Genes do not always inevitably have their effect. The effect could depend upon the environment. I could be carrying and pass along whatever gene(s) necessary for homosexuality to my children even though I'm straight.

So, it is my OPINION that this is wrong in your eyes. Everyone has an opinion and has the freedom to voice their ideas and concerns. You won't see me getting bent out of shape when you express yours, just have the courtesy and freedom to allow me to express mine. There are verifiable instances where scenarios already exists, or have been tried, just look them up. Just saying that a plural marriage…

What's the compelling state interest for not issuing licenses to same-sex couples, and why do you think it's necessary to achieve that interest?

I don't there is a religion that condones "anything goes". Kind of defeats the purpose. So "condoning freedom" is not the goal of most any religion.

Ever heard of a shotgun wedding? Consent doesn't come into that one, does it? How about arranged marriages? Again...no consent....

Mayor says moves were made to attempt to solve projected budget deficit

Quincy Journal has learned the City of Quincy has eliminated two administrative positions.

Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore confirmed the cuts this morning and issued a statement:

"The employees were notified that their positions were being eliminated and would not be included in the next budget. The absorption of the two positions was not due to the performance of the individuals, but a reflection that those duties could be handled by other positions within the city. The individuals have served the City of Quincy well and I am thankful for their service."  

Sources have told Quincy Journal the people who were let go were Jane Smith, administrative assistant at Central Services and Marty Wagner, project manager in Engineering/Utilities. The administration would not confirm the names. 

Moore said the moves were made after discussions with department heads on how the City could "reduce costs, streamline our structure and still provide uninterrupted service to our residents."

The City of Quincy now has 304 full-time employees, which is down from 312 employees when Moore took office in May.

Moore said this year's City budget started with a $1.8 million deficit. The budget was put together by the previous administration.

"This year’s budget proposed spending $31.8 million while only bringing in $30 million in revenues," Moore said. "That is not sustainable. My administration is currently working on preparing a budget that is balanced. This decision was just one step in that process."

The City's administration and City Council will be holding a budget retreat at the Town and County Inn and Suites on February 1 at 9:00 a.m. The public is invited.
