Take your own informal poll. Ask this question as worded:
What do you think of a man marrying a man?
I'd rather ask, "Why do you think fundie sheep are so obsessed on gay males".

No informal poll needed. All the following polls were on whether or not gays should be able to marry:

Bloomberg National Poll (9/2013) 55% support us
CBS News Poll (7/2013) 55% support us
Gallup Poll (7/2013) 54% support us
USA Today (6/2013) 55% support us
ABC News Poll (6/2013) 56% support us
CNN/ORC Poll (6/2013) 55% support us
ABC News & Washington Post (6/2013) 57% support us
Public Religion Research Inst (5/2013) 52% support us
NBC News/Wall Street Journal (4/2013) 53% support us

Your assertion that your opinion is the majority opinion is a false one.

No informal poll needed. The following polls were all conducted with the participants being asked if gays should be able to marry:

Bloomberg National Poll (9/2013) 55% support us
CBS News Poll (7/2013) 55% support us
Gallup Poll (7/2013) 54% support us

Your assertion that your opinion represents the majority is an incorrect one.

I think it's THEIR BUSINESS and not yours. Your preoccupation with who people you don't know at all want to get married to is pretty bizarre.

Do ANY of you bigots ever answer a direct question? For some reason you all seem to dodge back and forth, avoiding a direct answer. That's not how you get people to agree with your viewpoint. That's why we keep winning and you keep losing.

As long as the majority keep voting in favor of marriage equality for same-sex couples, I couldn't care less what they think.

Hmmm, and yet a majority of those same voters in 3 states said "YES" to that very question in 2012.

Seems you're wrong again.

You mean fantasy on the part of Yale and Princeton, since the one's press is publishing tomes about it, and the other houses the esteemed professor who broached the tantalizing subject.
Go to Hooters and take a last look at the mammary glands. There's no such thing as a free lunch, son.
It's still just an anti-gay fantasy, no matter who is behind it.

"3% Gay Americans" - The CDC estimates 4% just for gay males.
"185,400 Gay Americans per State" - Really?
There isn't much right about your 'fun' figures.
I was using the 3% the religious morons toss around just to keep down the arguments

It is really 17%

The foundational philosophical text of Western Civilization endorses eugenics, and you're treading on the Holy Grail of feminists, Roe v. Wade.
Nah. I'm just getting started. You were making a dumb argument with obvious parallels. It is one thing to make the reference out of the blue, however if the shoe fits... And in your case, it very much does.

I believe in Roe v Wade, however your assertion is absurd, not to mention idiotic.

That wouldn't help you understand how people really feel about gay marriage but you can take any poll that gets you going. Sheep, eh?

Is that the best you can do? That's pretty pathetic, Norman.

I guess when one can't make a rational and on topic argument, they revert to infantile ad hominem attacks that would be more at home on a playground.

I don't care how they feel about it. Equality isn't based on people's feelings moron.
