The real question is how do gays have more rights then straights? If someone straight even looks at a gay wrong they get sued. And the even bigger question, why in the hell are the dumb ass judges letting these things go by?

Where the hell do you think these votes are coming in from? Pastors, teachers, mediocre employees? How about none of the above! The only people who are voting for this "pole" are the gays and maybe somewhere in there the friends. How could someone vote for something when they themselves are not of it?

If the tide is turning, why does it take courts to override the will of the people in state after state after state after state? When put to a vote of the people's will, gay marriage doesn't pass. Majority of Americans don't want it.
And not a one of them has to marry someone of the same sex.
But this country has a rule that all persons should get equal protection of the law. Even when that's not popular.

Actually, it does.

Can't get your mind off of "push" and "hard" when thinking about gays, huh?

Can't get your mind off of gay men without thinking about a "pole"?
Anyway, not everybody is a psychopath. Most people can empathize.

Sorry but you're a straight up imbecile and so is your idiotic post ! Tell me,can you spell D-U-H ? LoL

List those rights, or are you a liar?

List the cases where straight people got sued. Or are you a liar.

As to the judges, you obviously don't understand anything of our Constitution.

They did, 3 states legalized it via popular vote. 2 more rejected bans which had hitherto always passed. Some states are working on putting the repeal of bans on the ballot.

If we look at a state like California, they voted on it in 2000 and 2008. In 2000 they had a 20% lead in banning it. 8 years later that margin fell to 6%. There are more states in that position. Obviously there are just as many that are not.

How can gay relationships mean no more humans? We've existed since the dawn of time and yet our population is exploding.

The same rights aren't "more rights", you silly thing. And show us ONE case where anyone was sued for looking at a gay person the wrong way.

Provide links, please.

People vote for things that help others all the time, even if they are not affected. It's called empathy. Many humans are like that.

And since the majority of the American population is in favor of gay folks legally marrying, we have a lot of friends and family, don't we? And yes, my Pastor supports my marriage, and so do all the teachers I know.

I've never bothered to ask the mediocre employees, though. They never stay around long enough to ask.

It's been 10 years. There have been no plagues of locusts. So the fear mongers are starting to lose influence.
The nutty fundies will remain nutty fundies, but since there have been no plagues of locusts, more and more people will see them as the nutty fundies they are.
Those who just didn't like the idea are now used to images of two men in tuxes, and just don't see it as a big deal either way now, not worth fighting over.
There just isn't a rational argument against gay marriage.
The ship has sailed, but we shouldn't get too comfortable.
There are still the nut jobs who are ready for a fight.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY


Timothy 1:10&#8232;The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching&#8232;1 Timothy 1:9-11 (in Context) 1 Timothy 1 (Whole Chapter)


1 Corinthians 6:9 Don’t you know that unrighteous people will have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don’t delude yourselves — people who engage in sex before marriage, who worship idols, who engage in sex after marriage with someone other than their spouse, who engage in active or passive homosexuality,&#8232;1 Corinthians 6:8-10 (in Context) 1 Corinthians 6 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

Leviticus 18:22 “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.&#8232;Leviticus 18:21-23 (in Context) Leviticus 18 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

Leviticus 20:13 “If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.&#8232;Leviticus 20:12-14 (in Context) Leviticus 20 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

Revelation 22:15 Outside are the homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with drugs, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.&#8232;Revelatio n 22:14-16 (in Context) Revelation 22 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

Deuteronomy 23:18 “No woman of Isra’el is to engage in ritual prostitution, and no man of Isra’el is to engage in ritual homosexual prostitution.&#8232;Deuter onomy 23:17-19 (in Context) Deuteronomy 23 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

Deuteronomy 23:19 Nothing earned through heterosexual or homosexual prostitution is to be brought into the house of Adonai your God in fulfillment of any vow, for both of these are abhorrent to Adonai your God.&#8232;Deuteronomy 23:18-20 (in Context) Deuteronomy 23 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

Romans 1-26-32
26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. 30 They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. 31 They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. 32 They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too
