PROMISES, PROMISES: Gay rights

There are 10 comments on the Seattle Times story from Apr 22, 2013, titled PROMISES, PROMISES: Gay rights. In it, Seattle Times reports that:

Ten years ago, same-sex marriage was legal nowhere in the United States. It's now allowed in nine states, with several more in the pipeline, yet many other states seem unlikely to follow suit unless forced by Congress or the Supreme Court.

Never quite could understand how someone elses 'marriage' would somehow put YOUR family in danger.

Only conclusion is that maybe someone in YOUR MARRIAGE might want a divorce in order to have a same-sex marriage.

What is it about gay marriage that makes you feel so insecure within your family??

You know what there "Earl". I'm not going to marry someone of the opposite sex but I'm not trying to outlaw straight marriage.

The only people hurting straight marriage are straight people.

We don't care about your marriage - kindly return the favor.

I will never understand how so many people can be so stupid as to post such comments when they CLEARLY have not thought them through. Even one tiny little bit.

All the idiots keeps screaming and crying about how marriage equality is going to "destroy" their families. Yet, not one of them can provide one shred of evidence, let alone logical support, for such a ridiculous notion.

I totally agree with everything here, except your last line. ALL families, ALL children should be protected.

Wow your marriage and family must be pretty unstable if you need the Supreme Court and Congress to change the U.S. Constitution in order to save it.

(BTW LEGAL Same Sex Marriage has been in existence for some 20 years now; if it were harmful to anyone you'd have evidence. But you don't have any, do you?)

But you know what the crazies will say to that, right?? "20 years isn't long enough to KNOW if there will be a problem or not! You just don't know yet!! It might take a million, trillion, ka-billion years for us to REALLY know if there's a problem involved with marriage equality, so we just can't do it. It's just too risky. We have to stop it NOW so that 400,000 years from now everything will be EXACTLY the same as it is RIGHT NOW!!"

Anything other than the complete halt of all progress on all issues is terrifying to them. They want things to be just like they imagine in their fantasies things "use to be".
