  5. Agree with Phoenix Justice, this is the message, in a nutshell, to go national. "It's about family and how we as people treat one another"… never better said. Of course I'm in tears too.

  7. Incredible. How rare it is, to see our elders, speaking with love and support of same-sex marriage. Such a beautiful and loving family.

  8. Quite possibly the best that's been produced here in the states to date. Amazing. (Although I still wish someone would buy the Australian ad and go national with it.)

  9. This is really so moving. Based on his obvious strength of character, I don't imagine that Mr. Gardner would want or expect to be thanked for doing this--but I'd like to thank him anyway.

  11. How dare you exploit a 90 year old man, who probably has no clue about what he's endorsing? You've milked that cow. Queers have no shame when it comes to what they want. Pathetic.

  12. God Bless them, they know what is means to be a real American who fought for our freedoms who want all Americans to be free to marry the ones they love. Wake up people it is time to give all Americans the same rights and freedoms as everybody else in America, that IS what makes America a great country, the fact that we have freedoms and that we fight for our freedoms, no matter what it takes to get our freedoms. God Bless America.
