Do labels like "liberal" help you to keep your thoughts organized? It does strengthen the "us against them" mentality, doesn't it?

As though only "liberals" hire illegal aliens.

Exactly. Everyone has a different idea of what's a sin.
A sin only means something to a religous person.
Can a gay person be religous?

Hmmm, that's not what it says on my marriage license.

Millions of gay people are religious, and I doubt they see being gay as a sin.

Obviously a lot more than 2% of the population think marriage should include same-sex couples, including 53% of voters in Maine, Maryland, & Washington.

The majority gets to define civil marriage, and the majority has now swung in our favor.

Illinois will make 10 states containing 20% of the US population living with marriage equality.

Once we get California back in June, that will jump to 1/3rd of the entire population.

Aaaah, progress.....

Those are the same idiots who vote democrat at least twice on election day. They are not a majority anywhere but in your mind.

They were a majority at the ballot box, which is the only place that matters.

Ironically your fellow ani-gays in Ohio sued in an attempt to stop the pro-equality group from putting a proposal on the ballot there.
Looks like your side is afraid they'll lose another vote.

Of course a judge threw out the lawsuit so the people of Ohio will now get a chance to vote for equality in 2014.

We have gay friends. I am looking forward to going to their wedding, but they said before they didn't want to marry even though they have been together for 22 years. One is retired military. I think it has to do with their families. As long as they are happy I am happy for them.

Except for these 3 facts! Maryland,Maine and Washington state! Not to mention all the latest national polls disagree with you! And lets not forget the Constitution and the 14th amendment! Now I'm wondering why you would post such untrue B.S.? Ever thought of seeking professional help? Perhaps a good shrink would help? Sorry but it is you who is in the minority! Glad I could be of help pal!

It will all depend on how many times the liberal Marxist's can get their low information voter's to the polls. They are trying for at least two votes per person in 2014. Up from 1.5 votes per low info voter in 2012. The problem that the queers have in Ohio, is that their ilk is only concentrated in the big cities. And if the ghetto dwellers don't see any free stuff dangling in front of them, or there is no "brother" to support. They stay home in droves.

I'm not saying the marriage ban in Ohio will be repealed in 2014; in fact it may fail, but eventually it WILL be repealed.

Obviously the anti-gays are scared enough that they tried to get an activist judge to block a chance for the people to vote.

Get that? It's the ANTI-GAYS trying to stop the people from voting on this issue? For decades all they did was whine how the people MUST be allowed to vote.

My, my, my, how times have changed!

A referendum on civil rights for minorities?

The majority gets to decide which civil rights
a minority can have?

That worked in the South for a long time.
Segregated drinking fountains, lunch counters, schools,
housing, employment, voting, walking down the street,
riding on a bus.........

But, the majority found out that all good things must
come to an end.

Some folks want to go back to that?
