Its nice to know that these gay people put thier own selfish desires over that of the common good. Go ahead..call me a homophobe....I am not against gay people, in fact i know several as friends, but all this BS about "Gay marriage" is ridiculous. whats the big thrill over having a piece of paper? Does it really change anything? Will gay people love thier partner more? It seems like gay people dont care about shoving thier lifestyle down everyones throat. Because they are gay, everyone who is not MUST accept it 100%?

And I'm sick of postings that are merely picking a fight.

I know, right? Instead of ignoring it, he actually calls attention to the very thing he despises. Irony!

It's about the thousand of legal protections that same-sex couples are denied under the law because many states have banned same-sex marriage and the federal government does not recognize civil unions, domestic partnerships or same-sex marriage.

If you don't want to hear about it, you can very easily mute the tv when it comes on tv, read another page on the newspaper, click off a website that mentions it, don't go to the threads that mention it, etc.

So what you have gay friends?
I know white people who have some pretty surprising views about black people and have black friends.
Do you want a cookie for having gay friends?

...and what? Gay people cant have relations with each other because its not recognized? Do you really believe that now that gays can marry, thier life changes so dramatically that it was well worth the effort to spit in the face of the majority of Americans? Nevermind, i know your answer. Thats liberalism..the enjoyment of the few is far more important than the rights of the majority.

I agree witrh your post on Obama normally, so with all due respect on this subject, if you are sick of hearing about it, then don't start a thread about it.

Well, until they get on equal standing as heterosexual couples in every area (including tax benefits, visitation rights, etc.), you're going to keep hearing about this.
