By posting this, I assume you are arguing that because you can find 2 or 3 men that are in favor of marriage equality, and they make other non-related errors in judgement, then gay men should not be allowed to marry. Surely you must be aware of all the "happily married" straight men who make just as poor of non-related judgements. Should we therefore take away the right of all straight men to marry?
They are literal spokespersons for the Gay Community, so do not downplay their roles as gay activists within your community. They are the ones who are at the forefront promoting the gay agenda in that state.
