Not according to every vendor who so gladly took my and my husband's money when we were planning our wedding. They were simply thrilled for the new business.

Oh, Thomas. Not all of us are paid to believe NOM's press.

I swear, some of these conservatives learned nothing last Tuesday about the dangers of believing your own echo chamber is the same thing as fact.
