Very good article.
I wish it had been transcribed in script form, though.

Just love how so many work in the "I don't hate LGBT but" bs.

Wow. Is anyone surprised that NONE of these people could articulate a logica, cause-and-effect-based reason for their opposition to marriage equality??
The common thread, to me, appears to be an extreme fear of both change and the unknown, but ALSO a near complete unwillingness to even THINK about the issue. It's as if they were all very much aware that they are wrong about their stance, but thinking about the reality of the situation is just too much for them. And going against the religious "beliefs" that have been hammered into them is *especially* terrifying.(no surprise there, though....)
Bizarre. And these people that refuse to think about something as simple as equal civil rights STILL get to vote....

I love how these people slip up and show what they really mean. Essentially, this guy just said he's against equality...it's right there, plain as day. Yet these people say they aren't bigots?
Who are they trying to fool?
By the way, isn't the above quote an unconstitutional view? "It's the beginning of putting certain people at the same level as everyone else," is what I got from this.
