Homophobia knows no party lines. I know Democrats who are steeped in it, and Republicans who support marriage equality.

Well, for one, we have gay marriage here, so we're a step ahead of you.

But anyway, I'll happily answer your question when you answer mine: what's with your obsession with gay sex? Is that what homosexuals are reduced to in your mind--a sexual act?

There is no argument against gay marriage other than those who want to force a notion of religious morals on a world that no longer believes that fellow citizens are immoral for just being born homosexual. Rational people have already decided the issue of human rights. Those who oppose are in another world that society has gladly left behind along with the sins of slavery and witch hunts.
I like how they said they would present 23 reasons and then during the trial they only called one guy who pretty much said nothing.

I was also cracking up about their guy when he said yes there were so many benefits to gay marriage but still you should disallow it for moral reasons that is funny because they ruled out moral reasons from the get go.

You are, of-course, correct about the phenomena of "conservative" Democrats who vote for the most Leftist candidates but oppose their party's agenda. The key word is "agenda." The official Democratic position on Prop 8 was to totally oppose it and you can be sure if a Democratic candidate voiced support for Prop 8 that he\ she would have been hounded to death. The Republican party, on the other hand, supported Prop 8 just like they have masterminded all the anti-gay measures across the nation. To compare them to Democrats in this context is completely incorrect.

What I like about the Democratic party is that coalitions with different groups and mindsets. There's no attempt to purge fellow Democrats out of the party like what is happening in the Republican party. Gentoo pointed out what recently happened to another very conservative Republican congressman in the South. He didn't fit the hysteria of Tea Party and was kicked out of a political party he has been in all his life. Great people

cant even asnwer the question, why are you so concerned with prop 8 when you dont live here.

You people are so worked up about a state you dont even live in, because you are obsessed with the idea that california is some liberal utopia.

but it is not, and we dont want gay marraige here, we already have had a say on the issue.

so out of towners like you, just coming here to stir up debate, when the issue does not effect them, shows your low character

anyways this is going to the supreme court, and the supreme court will uphold that a state has a right to decide who gets married and to what

You sound frightened. Ever hear of homosexual panic? You might want to look it up and see where you fit in.

Theres nothing to panic about, court houses still are not opening their doors to the gays trying to get married. The prop was simply over turned, that does not make gay marriage legal.
