Below I will be showing Radarsite's post from last night, but before I do, let me take a moment to mention a few things.
Roger Gardner is a contributor here at Wake up America and writes for his own blog called Radarsite and he contributes to quite a few other blogs as well.
Over the last year and a half, I have come to understand Roger is a great American man, in his 70's, lives alone and works tirelessly writing and trying to do his part in bringing information he believes is important to readers across the web.
I have watched Roger building his blog, tried to help answer questions when he was learning about blogging, helped to show him how to add videos and small things like that over the last year and a half, and was amazed at how fast he was able to learn how to network, how to advertise, how to add his own touch and feel to each of his pieces.
He has taken to blogging like a fish to water and took off at a dead run and never stopped, sometimes working throughout the whole night many times with more energy than those of us decades younger could possibly find.
A message to my Radarsite readersHis friends, as I and others are honored to call ourselves, are keeping in touch with him and will bring updates on how he is doing, how he is responding to treatment.
Please keep Roger in your prayers.

One simple word has caused protests that have come near rioting. The emotions, the turmoil, it is heartbreaking really how betrayed so many people feel, gay or straight.
Okay enough with the gush, let's get down to business.
First off allow me to say, I do not care who you love, who you live with, and who you choose to commit to. I may not exactly agree if you marry your car or a dolphin, but that is your choice. I believe in choice, I am an American.
Now with that out of the way lets talk about this marriage thing. Marriage is a union between one man and one woman. That is a traditional definition in the United States where 80% of the country is defined as Christian. That is right, the majority of the society sets that definition, if you do not like that tough.
Most Christians I have spoken with have expressed a very simple view to me, they want the word marriage left alone. They do not care who you love, or what you do in your private life. They may disagree with it, but they are Christians, they believe in choice and free will.
So here is the problem the LGBT community wants the legal definition of the word Marriage to include a union between two people of any sex or orientation. In essence they want to take a word that 80% of the population defines in a traditional manner of one man and one woman and change it. Obviously that is not going to make people happy that they have to change their point of view on a word that describes not only a legality but a religious ceremony.
The passage of Prop 8 kept marriage as a union between one man and one woman. And now the LGBT community is throwing a royal hissy fit and mostly it is over a simple problem with a simple fix. In fact it is a simple fix written into our constitution and expressed by Jefferson in a letter to the Danbury Baptists, Separation of Church and State.
