    I think they should offer domestic partner benefits. So what if theie lifestyle is a sin, they still deserve to have health benefits. To Gail you want to talk about whats morrally right and what God put us here for. Your opinion my be correct but God didn't put us here to judge others. He is the only one we have to answer to. If they are doing something sinful let them deal with that when judgement day gets here. The money for their benefits is not coming out of out pockets so I don't understand why people are complaining about it. We have domestic partner benefits at my job and I think it is a good idea. There are people out there that are in the process of being married and the domestic partner benefit can help them out until they get married. My thing is people need to quit gripping about someone elses life and worry about themselves.

    Give benefits to domestic partners it's there money as well as straight peoples. Eqaul's is all blacks and illegal imigrants beg and whine about so lets give it to gays and lesbians. It's a new day and for long blacks, illegals and ect will take over in good old Kentucky oh wait look around it is there and open so grow up and let it be. Good luck EKU i'll be praying you come up with the best choice for you and your students and workers.

    I say give domestic benefits to a man and his ewe, a woman and her donkey and of course all illegal immigrants. Move into the 21st Century space cadets because it's all good.

    If you want benefits buy them on your own or do like most citizens and if your a woman marry a man if your a man marry a woman. God put us here to pro-create. How on earth do two people of the same sex expect to do that and if your just shacking up with your other half do the right and respectable thing and get married if you want the benefits of a moral married couple. Other then that I agree with Dean and with Josh and take it a little further and say shut up whinning! You're way of life is NOT normal and you shouldn't get normal benefits like everyone else! I am so sick of this nation and all the immoral stuff that goes on and the law makers allowing it. I don't care if you are gay or lesbian or living together in sin that is your business but don't try to get the benefits that a repectably married individuals receive! Go back to your rocks and crawl back under them and cry to yourself the nations people are tired of hearing you and seeing you!

    I find this to be an absolute shame for the citizens of the community and the nation as a whole who still honor their values and have morals. How much deeper in the whole of immorality can this nation go.
