Some gay-rights foes claim they now are bullied

In this Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009 file picture, New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz, D-Bronx, right, speaks during a debate over same-sex marriage in the New York state Senate at the Capitol in Albany, N.Y. Diaz complained in May 2011 that he's received death threats because he opposes legislation to legalize same-sex marriage.

Sure, you are not gay,
I see your feeble brain can't comprehend the idea of one your fellow heterosexuals supporting the gay-rights movement, much like Southern whites of the 1950s and 60s were similarly confounded to see some of their fellow Caucasians supporting the black civil rights movement and dismissed them as "race traitors" or "n***erlovers". The more things change...

People in general. It's a good thing you are coming to terms with your true nature. Leave the gay people alone. Pobresitos, they have many issues as it is. Gaydar? Hehehehehehehhe

Every respected medical and mental-health organization on the planet agrees that homosexuality isn't inherently harmful, isn't a choice and can't be changed, and so therefore it's gay-bashers like you who have the "issues". I'll gladly take their scientifically proven, peer-reviewed word for it over the word of a knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing Neanderthal bigot like you any old day of the week.

Treating gay people equally under the law doesn't require any change in the current marriage laws other than changing who can participate to include same sex couples who meet all of the other qualifications. No other new laws are required.
Churches can already marry who they choose and reject anyone they choose including members of their own congregations. Yet many churches already recognize marriage equality and perform marriages in their churches. Marriage equality will not force any church to perform marriages, while laws prohibiting marriage equality restrict those churches from practicing their religion as they see fit.
You can claim they are equal, but they are not the same. Never will be. Makes it impossible to be equal. No law can change that.

Not trying to be difficult, just simple reality.

Your opinion, bigot boy. We'll all take that for what it's worth.

Fortunately, your kind is growing more discredited by the day. The fact that your beloved DOMA is getting struck down in one federal court after another is all the proof we need.
THAT'S the simple reality, bigot boy.

Hey, if I was gay, I wouldn't keep it a secret, because it's nothing to be ashamed of. It's conservative republicans who always get caught with their wieners out in mens rooms (ala Larry Craig), yet swear up and down that they're straight (remember, Larry takes a wide stance).

Calling me gay isn't an insult, but calling me a conservative IS.

Why's it so important? What if we just ablolish marraige to make the gay community happy? Marriage is over-rated. I don't want the right to own and carry guns. That right is yours, mine and the gay guys.
How do you propose we make marriage of gay people work? Let's pass a law making it good. Does that satisfy the need? What will follow that? I'mthinking less work is needed to let gays marry. The problem is that the churches, which tend to be marriage institutions don't like it. Does civil marriage through a cour t work? I'm all for it. As for convincing the churches so that one guy wears the suit and one the dress, that's gonna take some time.
So rather than sit here complaining, what's the path forward? What must happen in order for your dream to come true? Who do you have to influence? Where will you get the biggest bang for your buck? Topix? Probably not.
What"s your plan for making this happen, or are we just talking poop?
It's none of your business why something is important to someone else.

Why are your nuts important to you? I could care less about them.

Sure it is. The fight is lack of equality. I want to know what and how.

As for your invite to the truck stop, aren't you the one they call Dyson? Pretty scarey. A vacuum cleaner around nuts. Better stay away.

No two marriages are the same, just as no two people are exactly the same. Your belief ignores this reality. Yet you fail to show how all same sex marriages are different from all opposite sex marriages, other than the gender combinations.

While the law cannot make any two marriages equal to each other in all aspects, treating them equally under the law is a matter of basic fairness, fulfilling the spirit of our founding documents and constitution.

The bottom line is that a standard damily is mom, dad and kids. Divorce has forced many single parent families. 2 moms or 2 dads isn't normal.
A divorced family is not ideal but can still provide a mother/father role model. Even a single parent can see to that by making sure that the child has a well rounded upbringing.

Are they perfectly free to marry one another?
Yes, as free as anyone else in a given jurisdiction.
