If you oppose marriage for same-sex couples, that make you both anti-gay AND a bigot.

That's just the way it is.

If you don't be to be labeled an anti-gay bigot, then I suggest you support marriage for same-sex couples.

Until then, you're an anti-gay bigot.

Wrong again

Many gays are anti gay marriage

My manager in my call center is gay

I prefer to rent my properties to gays as they tend to be neater

Most of my investment property in Vallarta is in the old town or gay zone

How exactly did the company find she actually voted for Obama and not just openly supported him?

I also see where she wasn't made fulltime to last spring. So an employee with less than one year fulltime employment should be kept during layoffs because?

I can live with that for now, because after the SCOTUS overturns DOMA in June we will get all the same federal rights & benefits as every other married couple.

Unfortunatley equality in America always comes in stages; but it always arrives sooner or later.

I can wait.......

Another of your stupid analogies.

No one expects (or even wants) gays to be called straight.

But just as it's called "voting" whether a ballot is cast by a white person or a black person, we also call it marriage whether an opposite-sex or same-sex couple gets married.

Irrelevant.

If you oppose equal marriage rights, that makes you anti-gay and a bigot, regardless of your sexual orientation.

Just because someone rents a house to a black person or hires a hispanic but doesn't support letting them vote doesn't make them any less of a racist.

Btw, just because a few gay people don't personally want to get married or even believe in the institution of marriage, doesn't necessarily mean they support banning ALL same-sex couples from marrying. If they do, then I would say they are anti-gay & bigots as well; just as a few blacks are also racists against other blacks.

If you want marriage then you are asking to be straight

Marriage was always between a man and a women

People that want to have sex with animals and same sex need not apply

Without marriage we can't have equal rights.

We don't need luck; the majority of Americans are on our side (as is the majority on the SCOTUS), which is why we've gone from being banned from marrying in all 50 states to being able to marry in 9 states & DC with more to come soon.

Nope, still wrong.

Marrying my husband in no way made me straight, nor would any rational person expect to be called straight just because they're married. They DO expect to be called married, since that's what they are.

Again, voting at one time in America was always done by white men; we don't now call blacks white just because they're voting, nor do we call women men just because they're voting. We call them voters.

We also don't call married inter-racial couples a white couple just because they can now marry when once they were banned; we just call them married.

Try again......

Yes, blacks got equal voting and marriage rights, and no one called them white.

Just as gays will have equal marriage rights and no one will call us straight.

Why would you call them straight?

Spin it however you like to make yourself feel better, but if you oppose equal marriage rights for same-sex couples, then you're an anti-gay bigot.

The word marriages is a civil union between two people of the opposite sex..........LOL
But gays are not as smart as the blacks or they would have went for equal rights instead of changing the meaning of the word marriage..........ROTFLMAO
Not any more; it now includes a civil union between two people of the same sex.

We ARE going for equal rights, which can only come through marriage.

Btw, marriage was once defined as a civil union between two people of the same race. Things change, get used to it.

20 years ago equal rights would have been no problem...
But the gay community chose to try and change the meaning of the word marriage so for the last 20 years no federal benefits....
How many gays filed bankruptcy because they could not get on their partners insurance???
How many dies alone in a hospital because their partner was not allowed in???
Pretty stupid..........LOL
And yet you and your fellow anti-gays opposed ANY recognition of our unions 20 years ago?

Your side even opposed decriminalizing consensual sex between same-sex couples in the privacy of their own home as recently as 2003.

So you expect us to believe your fellow anti-gays supported the same rights & benefits of of marriage through civil unions 20 years ago, but if we had sex we could be arrested?

You may have convinced yourself, but the rest of us arent' buying it.
