I can debunk all the queer arguments by the mere fact that queers have to equate their fake counterfeit pretend civil unions as "equality" to marriage.
Queers are trying to leech off normal society and normal institutions to legislate or adjudicate something they can't or won't do for themselves.
Why the qualifier "equality"?
It's either marriage between a man and a woman, or it isn't.
"Equality" to normal is an artificial construct that has not and will not stand the test of time.

Equality means citizens have equal protection of the laws and fundamental rights.

Your post is BS.

People who decide to become queer and commit homosexual acts are already equal to everyone else.

Why deport? When you are clearly trying to set up the same type of government right here?

First of all, you don't decide to be gay anymore than you decide to be hetero.

No, we are not treated equally to everyone else.

So what did it take for YOU to "decide to become queer"?

$10 or 10 inches?

Obviously you're feeling a lot of guilt over it......

Back to the topic-

Unfortunately these "top 5 garbage arguments" have been VERY effective in the past.

We'll have to see how things play out this year, but we DO seem to be reaching a critical mass of support in Washington state. Policital leaders, business leaders, and even religious leaders are ALL coming out in support of Ref 74.

These anti-gay ads have been running for about 2 weeks now and there has been no drop in the polls; we're consistently at 55%+ support.

We'll know in 2-3 weeks, depending on how long it takes them to count their ballots- Washington is a 100% mail in ballot state, so as long as the ballot is postmarked by Nov 6th it will be counted.

The lies will never cease...they should have a pro-equality ad saying "look at Canada!"
Where's all the fire and brimstone in Canada right now? What, gay marriage ISN'T turning Canada into a hell or third world country?
SHOCKER!

History proves that the States will have equality eventually, one way or another. Also, Canada has been ahead in the civil rights movements every time, and when you see Canada not denying rights, then you know that eventually, the US will follow suit.

I love argument no. 5. Well, think of the flowers! who asks them! Marriages & funerals are florists bread & butter, they'd have to have pretty strong opinions not to want the business. Does this mean they'd start to not cater for the funerals (or marriages) of ppl whose religious preferences they disagreed with. Somehow I'm not imagining that many anti-gay florists......perhaps thats just me, lol

I love the line in the video "We ALL know what happened to Chic Filet!"

Can somebody fill me in because I did not know any legal action was brought against Chic Filet.

......
I think you are confused.

We don't believe that civil unions are the same as marriage. That's why marriage equality is important.

It's the anti-marriage crowd that try to prove that civil unions are the same as marriage for gay folks, then fight against civil unions when they are the law.

Insane, isn't it?

Fortunately the name and framework of marriage is the same whether a couple is gay or straight. No "civil unions" required.
