You are free to talk about your love of men here. You are safe. Now is your opportunity to admit you are gay and proud of it. Go for it. No one will attack you. If you want to marry another man admit it now.

Sure, there will be funny looks from morons; the same people who look a disabled person funny; but morons don't count...after all, they're morons.
about 6,800 Americans die every day; and the vast majority are elderly and anti gay-marriage. That's about 2,500,000 deaths of largely anti-gay marriage leaning people. At the same time, those old Americans are being replaced every year with about 4,200,000 new humans...new humans who will largely be pro gay-marriage or neutral.
Like your boy George Will says...opposition to gay marriage is dying...it's old people.
Sorry, but you need to find another cause.
Your logic is flawed and you are kidding yourself. Even, "New" people don't accept it. They aren't going to call you out on it, but hardly accept gay marriage. You are in a state of delusion. Talk again in 20 yrs. It will be the same.

You are kidding yourself. People tolerate your situation, they don't accept it. The majority of the population are conservative and very traditional. People may tolerate you, but they don't have to like it.
You believe that Gay Marriage is normal and welcomed by the masses. Where do you get this impression? What's the gay population in the USA? Say there are 350 M people here. What percentage is gay? 1 percent. Or less? I don't see the other 347 M saying, yeah, let's replace the union between Man and Woman with Man and Man or Woman and Woman. So, at the wedding, which one wears the gown and which wears the suit?
This is not about open-minded or not. You gotta be careful when you keep fighting for more and more when you may already be at the brink of wearing out the tolerance limit. Be content with people not taking action in the other direction.

Correction - First, the votes failed to overturn laws that were imposed by legislative fiat. Second, the margins were razor thin and the Traditional Marriage supporters were massively outspent.
We'll get this back on the ballot again before you know it.

Correction : Whether or not you get it on the ballot, the SCOTUS's decision will be FINAL.

10 states recognize marriage equality. 9 recognize marriages performed in their state, while RI recognizes those performed in other states and countries.

Again, equal rights of a minority should never depend on the popular opinion of a majority.

The 14th amendment says no state shall "deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." The Equal Protection Clause “‘neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens.’

The U.S. Supreme Court said: "The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."

Attorneys Theodore B. Olson and David Boies wrote in their prop.8 filing: "Fourteen times the Supreme Court has stated that marriage is a fundamental right of all individuals. This case tests the proposition whether the gay and lesbian Americans among us should be counted as ‘persons’ under the 14th Amendment, or whether they constitute a permanent underclass ineligible for protection under that cornerstone of our Constitution.”

I not a nut. I just feel sorry for the guy. All he does is post comments reeking of homosexual behavior. It appears he wants to come out but refuses to admit his feelings. It is the holiday season and I wanted to do a good deed. Geez

Since it is the holiday season. We all need to be civil and encourage the great pendejo to come out. I think we all agree he will not be hated or ridiculed by anyone once he admits to his feelings for men.

What has so much fun with his family, that he now believes everyone is related to him. Clue for you to know the difference, if the people don't resemble your deliverance family, then they are not related.

Longtime incumbent Sen. Stephen Saland has officially conceded his Senate race to Democrat Terry Gipson.

Saland was one of four GOP Senators who voted in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage, giving the measure a boost that was necessary for passage. He attracted a Conservative Party challenger in Neil Di Carlo, who garnered about 15,000 votes. Saland’s loss means just one of those four Republicans—Buffalo Sen. Mark Grisanti—will return to the chamber in 2013.
