So you wish to force bisexuals to be either gay or straight? Seems rather harsh does it not? Obviously if gays have a right to marry then...
Why should the tiny group (gays) be catered too while the much larger group (bisexuals) is still discriminated against?
You aren't making sense. If same sex couples can legally marry, this is just as wonderful for Bisexual people. Now any one of them will be able marry the unrelated adult person of their choice, in the same way that any straight person already can, regardless of gender.

Why would they need to change orientation?

LOL.

Why in the world would you assume that only conservatives are tax payers?

Talk about a faulty world view.

Sodom and Gamorrah wasn't just a neighborhood cook out. God only comes down here on important missions. He came because those people anal scoping each other among other acts against nature.

If gay marriage is ok then that opens up the door to all sexual minorities. Those whose sexual preference is pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia...

I always find this sort of comment so odd.

Perhaps you can explain it.

Why do irrational bigots ALWAYS start thinking about harming animals, children, and molesting the dead whenever they hear that two law-abiding consenting adults are going to marry?

It makes no sense to the rest of us.

The answer, atleast for me, is we connect the actual misbehavior such as guys backending guys with the the people that perform the act. Seems the left have disconnected the movement from the actual moves.So if they would do that, it is a 'gateway' to other despicable misbehaviors.

Why do some people get so upset about something that is highly unlikely to affect their personal lives? The only answer I can come up with is they have a desire to impose their ridiculous beliefs on others!
Doesn't that argument work both ways?

The Sodom myth doesn't mention gay folks at all. But it does have a paragraph about the blessed righteousness of tossing one's daughters out to be raped to quell a mob, and ANOTHER attempt to re-populate the world through incest.
But then, I suppose you don't actually READ the Bible.

Let's see.

When you hear of marriage, love and family life, you immediately fantasize about two males having anal sex, right?

And this leads you to judge other people's "misbehavior".

Don't blame the "left" for your own obsessions, perversions, and fantasies. They are your own creations.

Again with homophobic sexual fantasies? Geesh.

Can't you people turn them off?

I can assure you that NO gay person fantasizes about heterosexual sex every time they hear that some straight person is getting married.

What happened in your life to twist you this way?

And the gay kids going through those private schools will still be gay.

Teach ALL children morals, standards, and love of country. Teach them to value marriage and family.

But, be aware, you will be teaching the SAME things to the gay kids.

And when they want to serve their country or marry, don't complain. The learned those behaviors from people like YOU.
