<quoted text>Stellar quotes, but you're wasting your breath on the above hater. Our only comfort with that kind is that they are quickly dying out. I recently read in the LA Times that the millenials, kids born around 1980 are completely comfortable with gay rights and see absolutely NO problem with equal rights. Since they are now hitting 30, in no time they will be the major demographic and haters like the above will be trivialized cranks who sit around in goofy conservative circle jerks and preach to each other..otherwise called "Fox News".
Oh dear friend I am well aware that when dealing with that one I'm basically watching a two year old with honey on her fingers try to take a feather off her hand.

As for FOX News I think Obama nailed them beautifully when he did the pre Super Bowl interview with Bill "Oh REALLY?".

And then watching Jon Stewart do his take on it?
PRICELESS
(you have to watch this link even if you did already)

Watch The Daily Show nail Fox News for anti-Obama scandalmongering

What's the problem?
How do you define "problem"? Wouldn't a "problem" actually have to create some, you know, PROBLEMS in someone's life? Just because we're doing something that YOU wouldn't choose to do, doesn't mean there's any problem.
To understand 'wondering' I suggest you watch "The Daily Show" clip I just posted to Curt.

I'm really beginning to believe many children back in the 40's, 50's and 60's were left with a feather,paint chips and sticky fingers for too long.

Every child does need a good parent or two. However, there is nothing to indicate that the gender of the parent makes a difference. If Utah really wants to do something about marriage, end divorce and criminalize sex outside of marriage. But they will not do that because women would hate that.
Gay people will do as well with parenting as straight people. I had two straight parents and they were terrible at it. I would have been glad to have two real gay parents.
Utah is one of about 18 states where consensual fornication is technically prohibited under the law (one more than the states where sodomy laws are still on the books, by the way). It is on the books, but the general consensus is that these laws are incredibly unconstitutional and thus rarely, if ever charged. We're also talking about a state where laws prohibiting cohabitation, just had the constitutional rug pulled out from under them by the family from Sister Wives. Many states have any number of laws which should regulate the heck out of heterosexual behaviors, laws against fornication, heterosexual sodomy, cohabitation, adultery, under-age sex, the whole gamut. But when you're talking consenting adults with a reasonable expectation of privacy, you're also talking unconstitutional governmental intrusion into people's lives.

No one is trying to get rid of people who produce children, so I don't know what your point is. There's room for BOTH types of people in this world. You don't just muscle everyone out of society if they can't produce children, or if they don't fit into whatever mainstream pigeonhole you prefer.
Why is it totally cool for a man and a woman both with Down syndrome to get married? They can produce children, but is that a good idea? Even if the child were not afflicted (which they likely would be), the parents would not be capable of raising it. They would need a team of assistants. Yet their marriage is fully sanctioned. Where's the consistency?
Some might say that heterosexuals are doing TOO good of a job producing children. Isn't 7 billion enough yet? Aren't our resources stretched tight enough as it is? Aren't there plenty of post-consumer toxins being dumped into the air and sea, from the people we already have? Maybe you breeders should lighten up a little. Maybe you DO need us, to help keep the exploding population DOWN just a little. People are already having trouble finding enough jobs. Do you think your grandkids' grandkids will have an EASIER time, with another 4 or 5 billion MORE to compete with?

I love that the only possible defense of these prohibitions is that heterosexuality is a learning disorder and if we don't cater to it exclusively, they can become easily confused. They have nothing against us, it's just that straight folk are so mentally and emotionally handicapped that we gots to treat them special.

Moral slippage is inherent in democracy and it chaotically degrades to fascism. Without a perfect regent, I prefer anarchy to chaos, as I think most should.

Good thing we're not a democracy, but rather a constitutional republic which protects the rights of ALL citizens, not just the majority.
