On same-sex marriage, and on any aspect of gay culture, the Times doesn’t practice journalism, but rather publicity. But the Pew study indicates that this is a problem not only at the Times, but across the news media. The problem is that journalists don’t see it as a problem, because they cannot imagine that anybody could be against same-sex marriage for any reason other than bigotry, and they don’t believe they should be expected to be fair and balanced towards bigots.

Blah, blah, blah.

The article you cut and paste creates an argument around the fact that there are gays "opposed" to marriage equality. But that sentiment is only reflected in the headline, since that is all most nincompoops like yourself are going to read. The very gay person that this article uses to try and demonstrate the "bias" it is trumping, is very clear, and is quoted as follows, "“I’m not saying that people who want that [marriage] shouldn’t have it but for me, all that matters is the legal stuff.”

So he is hardly "opposed" to gay marriage. There are lots of straight people that find domestic partnerships or civil unions acceptable for themselves, that doesn't mean they are "opposed" to other straight people marrying.

By the way, your post above includes lots of examples of calling things "problems" but never demonstrating why they have been labeled as such. In other words, your cut and paste demonstrates the very bias it is claiming to be able to demonstrate in others. But then, you were probably too stupid to notice that, given your zeal to try and show how you aren't really a bigot!!!!! But you are.

I support your right to marry your boyfriend sport, no need for all your angry nonsense. Same sex marriage is a reality now, stop worrying and getting angry.

Having said that, Pew Research has found heavy media bias favoring SSM. This is a fact fruitcake. Don't shoot the messenger.

Calm down.

On same-sex marriage, and on any aspect of gay culture, the media doesn’t practice journalism, but rather publicity.

The problem is that liberal journalists don’t see it as a problem, because they cannot imagine that anybody could be against same-sex marriage for any reason other than bigotry, and they don’t believe they should be expected to be fair and balanced towards bigots.

This is the problem with the liberally biased media on most issues, not just same sex marriage. Any opposition to progressive policies is "bigotry" and therefore worthy of censorship and bias.

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of several states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

If heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?

What harm would a loving marriage of three consenting adult women cause Jizzy?

Why is he a hypocrite deciding who should be allowed marriage equality based on his hate of religion?

The least you could do is credit the original author.
That author is talking about Canada you moron. But he is asking the same question I am. Why is polygamy illegal? If the gender part of "one man one woman" is now irrelevant why is number part still relevant?
Answer the question Jizzy, don't delete my post and claim it was a violation of TOS.

Do you have anything relevant Jizzy? You talk about my posts being censored away because they are off topic and violations of TOS but yours are ALWAYS like that and you don't get censored.

All you do is look for a way to attack me. You are a troll and if anyone should be censored it is you.

I hurt your feelings. Man up and discuss the issues. Stop crying.

Aw, that's nice. Would you write one for polygamy too Jiz?

I don't want to write letters. I simply want to discuss marriage equality without fear, ridicule or censorship.

<quoted text>Feel free todo so. I am not stopping you. However the topic is not marriage equality.
Prop 8 discriminates against polygamy the same as it does against same sex marriage. You know, EQUALLY. The judge's decision is as relevant to polygamy as it is to same sex marriage.

Don't hog all the relevance. Don't hog all the victimhood.
