Yes.

Those over age 65 are now the ONLY demographic with more than 50% opposition to same sex couples marrying.

The only reason you won votes in the past was because 90% of those old geezers vote while only 25%-50% of the younger generations vote.

Once that generation continues to die off over the next decade there won't be a majority opposition left in any demographic.

So, you don't believe it's worth living in a world where more people value marriage?

How odd.

We know that 10,000 Americans are killed each year by a gun. How many die because someone else was attracted to adults of the same gender?

Stats, please.

Yes, they will die off. As will we.

And those who come after us are much less likely to worry about which adult some other person might fall in love with.

Now, how many children are never born from homosexual couples.

There not going to take there marriage ban off there constitution and if there any benefits gained at the federal level civil unions won't be included
Removing the constitutional ban will take a vote of the people; likely in 2014 or 2016, unless the SCOTUS acts first.

The SCOTUS may decide that any state which offers civil unions must allow same-sex couples to marry; it's been dubbed the "8 state solution". I guess now that would be the "9 state solution".

Either way, passing civil unions will once again the stepping stone to marriage equality.

Btw, do you oppose marriage for same-sex couples because they don't include federal rights/benefits either?

You're nuts.

Please explain how homosexuality is any threat to children at all.

Good luck.

In a world literally on the tipping point of over population, you should slow down a bit, Cletus. There are PLENTY of children being born, plenty.

So then you must oppose marriage for same-sex couples in the 9 states where it is allowed, because NONE of those marriages are treated equally to all other marriages.

No federal benefits.
No recognition in all 50 states.

Yep, marriage for same-sex couples is just more separate but unequal; just like civil unions.

one more time the couples in the 9 states upon the overturning of DOMA will be granted federal benefits, the 6 states with civil unions will not, did I make that simple enough that even you can understand
and anyone that believes that separate but equal will find out they have been duped
