So, do tell, are you a constitutional lawyer to make that judgement.
It's not my perception, it's the laws we have in place. Until I'm discriminated in a court of law, I don't sweat the small stuff.
And I'm sure not about to change my religious beliefs to make someone feel good and so that they feel equal. That's not my job.
DAM YOU NAZI!!!!!!!!!! Dont you get you dont have to change yoru beliefs...JUST LET OTHERS HAVE THERE BELIEFS..........

Good gawd you religous freaks are dumb and a stump..........NO ONE WANTS YOUR APPROVAL OR FOR YOU TO CHANGE.....JUST WANT TO HAVE SAME AND EQUAL RIGHTS AND FREEDOM AS YOU..........GOOD LORD YOUR RETARDED..

Courts have OVERWHELMINGLY rejected the political charade of homosexual 'marriage,' just as homosexuals themselves have overwhelmingly rejected it as an actual practice in every country that allows your concocted oxymoron.
You have failed to make any rational case for homosexual 'marriage.'

Opps. Sorry. I thought you were a half way reasonable person, looking for a rational debate.

Again, NAMBLA is not part of any reasonable discussion. We know from decades of science and everything else, child abuse is harmful and therefore immoral. If you want to talk about child abuse, that is a different topic. As a Social Worker, I can tell you horrific tales all day of straight parents beating, boiling, burning their children and worse.

It only shows, those with no rational argument resort to irrational fear mongering, including appeals to the instinct to protect the children. And as I mentioned earlier, some only come here to bash and abuse, proving my point that discrimination and prejudice only cause harm.

Clearly, you have no argument that provides a compelling legitimate governmental interest sufficient for denial of the equal treatment require by the constitution not already considered and rejected by the courts. Looks like we're done here.

"In the courtís final analysis, the governmentís only basis for supporting DOMA comes down to an apparent belief that the moral views of the majority may properly be enacted as the law of the land in regard to state-sanctioned same-sex marriage in disregard of the personal status and living conditions of a significant segment of our pluralistic society. Such a view is not consistent with the evidence or the law as embodied in the Fifth Amendment with respect to the thoughts expressed in this decision. The court has no doubt about its conclusion: DOMA deprives them of the equal protection of the law to which they are entitled."

It's really comical when other people try to guess what we "really want."
What more societal "acceptance" could I possibly need? My family is fabulous, my friends are fabulous, my community is fabulous, TV shows with gay characters are fabulous and held up to great acclaim. What "acceptance" do you suppose I need?
When you grow up gay (especially in years past) you learn very quickly to live without "acceptance" in certain regards.
You have an audience of gay people here. Why not take the opportunity to ask questions rather than issue proclomations based on misinformation or no iformation?
People put on mask to hide their true feelings. Know one have to guess what the gay agenda is just use common sense. It is human nature for people to want to be seen as normal whether it is race, gender, physical, behavior and more. The cry from gays is I am normal. Coming out of the closet. Accept me as normal. Gay pride parades. Accept me as normal. Let me marry. Accept me as normal. This is the cry from the gay community. We will use the law to make everyone see us as normal. If we can not get our way we will take it to court. This is a cry for social acceptance.

People who believe in God's laws still have the right to vote, freedom of religion and speech.
Unless of course you are voting to harm other Americans based on on your animus and religious beliefs. If there is no rational reason for discrimination other than your own personal religious belief, then you must expect a fight.

If you do such a vile thing, expect a flurry of costly lawsuits that overturn your vote.

God Bless America!

And be glad it's this way. I suspect you would not like living under Sharia Law, if other Americans wanted to impose it on YOU, believing that it would save your soul.

That happens because we ARE normal. And we will use every legal means necessary to ensure that we have ALL of the same legal protections, opportunities, and basic civil and human rights that every other Americans demands.

We will protect ourselves, our children, and every gay kid out there.

That is a completely normal stance, and it's shared by every other American.

Good Article!
<quoted text>
The article makes no sense.

If you promote the idea that gay people should remain in the closet and marry heterosexuals as a nice cover, or for the benefits, in loveless marriages of convenience, I HOPE that you would support your child entering into such a marriage, and even encourage them.

If you are only promoting it for the children of others, you would be a hypocrite.

Dissecting the 'gay' marriage charade

Anyone in the United States can participate in the institution of marriage Ė if they choose to do so.
Homosexuals donít usually choose to do so because they usually donít want to be married to members of the opposite sex. But itís their choice.
.......
Don't all married straight folks CHOOSE the person they will marry?

Do you REALLY believe that marrying for convenience to a person you can never be attracted to and romantically love is a sound option?

Would you accept it for yourself? Your child?

If you are only promoting it for the children of others, you would be a hypocrite.

You may see yourself as normal but society as a whole do not. If society seen gay relationships as normal we would not be talking about it. single parents and their children whether gay or straight have legal protection. The cost of raising children is the same. So marriage is not a requirement to raise children. Marriage has always been recognize as opposite gender. There is no law that will create social acceptance. A gay marriage will never be look upon as a normal marriage. It will always be seen as a gay marriage.

Actually the pols show you to be wrong.

Gay relationships are normal for GAY PEOPLE. If you are straight, they would not be normal for YOU. And, it is NEVER wise to try to project your own traits needs on others.

What is abnormal is when gay people feel the need to pretend to be straight and form sham relationships with heterosexuals, just to appease people like yourself - a hypocrites who would NEVER wish such a relationship on themselves or their kids, but only promote them for strangers.

Does that help you to understand?

No, that's just what you tell yourself to make yourself feel better.

It is anti-Gay, anti-God, and anti-America. You're a degenerate discriminator. Totally unAmerican and unChristian.

Time is creating social acceptance, thank goodness, and that change has come quite quickly, as more and more gay people choose to lead authentic lives.

It's hard to fear or hate gay folks when yoru kid is gay, your co-worker is gay, or your neighbor is gay. It's much easier to fear the unknown. And the young folks in this country have MUCH less prejudice than the current generation.

Soon NO gay kid will be required to pretend to be straight and hide in a sham relationship with and unsuspecting straight person.

You should be glad of that.
