Because civil liberties, a safe environment, and education are bad things? Sounds like you are trying to destroy the nation.

Well then... what if they are brothers?
You can no longer use the moral argument of right or wrong so how can you prevent incestual marriage between any two people who cannot make a freaky baby? So if mom is past menopause or had her tubes tied or the son had a vasectomy why can't they get hitched? After all if she is worth millions he should be entitled to the tax break just like the gay folks out there.
Anyone???????
Why can't we use the moral argument between righ or wrong? Those telling other people who they can and cant marry are immoral and wrong. That includes incest. We don't require those with genetic conditions to not have children, so whats the difference?

Funny how we care more about two people who want to marry but as a nation we blow up innocent people in the name of terrorism and don't bat an eye. We got our priorities all screwed up as a nation and we wonder why the rest of the world despises the USA.

Most of us are capable of caring about more than one thing at a time.

Bob White--"Where do you "gay rights" advocates come from?"

The United States of America.

"We do not want that scandalous mess shoved down our throats."

You don't want equality? Well, that's your choice, I assume you're Taliban, then?

"We need jobs like never before and you ppl. want to push an ungodly devil inspired same-sex marriage."

A blasphemy against God. NO, your hate and bigotry is NOT Godly, discrimination is not Godly. Equality is not "devil inspired."

"Do you ppl. realize that those who engage in such behavior are actually having sex with demons."

Again, a vile, Ku Klux Klan lie that slurs and insults the Lord God. NO they are NOT having sex with "demons." First off, being gay is NOT a "bahavior." It's something one IS, not something one DOES. Secondly, those who do have sex have sex with HUMAN BEINGS, not "demons." If you want to hate, that's your problem but DO NOT insult our Lord by pretending your hate has a thing to do with God, it does NOT.

"There are ancient sex demons that are adept at convincing the weak/double minded souls that its ok to walk on the wild/abnormal side."

There is no such thing as a "sex demon," gay people are NOT abnormal or weak. In fact, bigots like you are the weakest, most cowardly people imaginable.

"That stuff is not love.....but lust. EROS EROS EROS."

LIE LIE LIE!!! Gay couples are JUST as loving as any other.

"a far cry from the real meaning of LOVE."

It's obvious as you spew hate and pretend God's backing for it that you are the last person on the planet from whom one could get a realistic view as to the "real meaning of love"

(the answer is that just like public nudity or swearing in public society has the RIGHT to make laws that reflect thre moral character of the times. If that means that women can't go around topless at the beach but men can than that is the law and is sanctified. The VOTERS csan vote to suspend all marriage laws for everyone so they can also vote to decide who is elgible just like they do for any other tax break. Farmers can write off fertilizer but homowners cannot.)
personally as long as an employer is not required to provide health insurance they can marry all they want.
Yeah...except that homosexuality isn't remotely immoral.
