Tell all straight married people that and you will get an ear full. Why are people so afraid of gay marriage?

But I do believe that allowing civil unions and giving equal tax benefits is fair. But not the right of Christian marriage but I will quickly move on and hold no bitterness if that is what the country decides.

Just sick of hearing about it.
Don't worry, the government has nothing to do with Christian marriage or Jewish marriage or Muslim marriage or Hindu marriage or Buddhist marriage or atheist marriage: it's all just marriage.

I'd say some people need to realize this isn't 1950 and those who think it is need to wake up.

Boomer. Straight. And a proud support of equal rights for the LGBT community.

Didn't this country try the separate but equal thing before?

How did that work out?

As many times as you keep bringing up a separate but equal proposition.

Yet you seem to be unable to tell me what I posted that is wrong.

I'll give you another crack at it.

Go ahead and tell me what I posted that was factually incorrect.

And remember, just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's wrong.

They're not. Gay marriage is only the start of everything. Why aren't homosexuals happy with civil unions? Why do homosexual activitists and their supporters insist on demonizing everyone that does not agree with them? Why are homosexual activists and their supporters insisting on making this such a problem?

Didn't this country try the separate but equal thing before?


Yes, I forgot. In the eyes of the radical left one cannot be separate AND equal, right? I could have a brand new Rolls Royce and offer to buy one exactly like it and you would not be happy. You HAVE to have mine. After all, you have a rihght to have mine, right?

Sure, why not?

Meanwhile in this century, the Obama girls need Affirmative Action because a white male who grew up with a single parent in a run down trailer park is going to use his white male privilege to oppress them.
