ScottyMagic, I LOVE your thinking! Don't ever slow down, OK? It is so rare on these posts to find a well-reasoned, well-articulated piece, and I thank you for taking the time to spell it out.

Love ya! Thanks for the support. Y'know, there are days when I get really tired of debunking these same lame arguments from the neocons over and over and over. But just knowing that good thinking people like yourself read my writings and appreciate them makes it all worthwhile.

I find it amazing that these "Christians" are so upset about the spate of violence that they have recently seen. Please don't misunderstand me. In no way am I condoning the few gays who have gone overboard in the expression of their anger. I think vandalism or violence is ultimately counterproductive. Having said that, I am simply dumbfounded that these Yes on 8 donors did not think that their financial support and outright lies would not bite them on eventually bite them on the ass. Gays and lesbians have been so victimized from employment discrimination to murder that the rants of a Maggie Gallagher are just laughable. Yes, Christianity did at one time acknowledge via a religious ceremoney gay marriages. Times change; ideas evolve because people evolve. These Christians need to evolve, but I guess that may be hoping for too much. I do believe, however, that we will prevail, but it is going to take a long, hard fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Religious minorities? Christians are a religious minority and that is why they can keep my partner and I from being wed and getting all the same benefits they do from the state and federal government??? WTF IS THAT??????!!!!

I say take away all "marriage rights" The social security benefits, the inheritance benefits, the wills that stand stronger then what one with my partner and I would stand if either of our families decided to get in the middle.

I think that the people ON the stage should have been 2 gay couples and 2 str8 couples talking.
We need to make this REAL and PERSONAL (meaning real couples and people).
The .30 second clips of the gay and str8 couple's lives was probably the most impactful - in my opinion.
So many want to villify gay couples with pictures of pride parades and such - when in reality, most of us gay couples wiht children are JUST like str8 couples with children.
