Given that a *majority* of Americans already support the legal recognition of same-sex marriage, it's hardly going against the tide to demand that the United States deal with it.
Statistics, eh? It sure seems to me that that the voting record disagrees.

The demographics HIGHLY favor gay marriage in urban areas from what I've seen. It kind of goes along with the personal space and overstimulation thing that I've been talking about. I can't say that I agree with it and I'll never endorse it, but if you really get a majority, and not just 10 million New Yorkers who think they can tell Kansas what to do, then I'll say that you have sufficient consensus to give it a try.

I suppose you are referring to the cat fights. To some extent, it seemed that you weren't avoiding them but you were not being quite so mean as others so I figured I wouldn't butt in and ruin your style of debate. Was that the wrong assumption to make? As I've said, I do make assumptions and the Goth style of dress usually suggests someone who does things their own way.
The only wrong assumption was that I would consider even pulling others into it. ;)

At least you actually know what Goth is, many do not, so I have to give you credit for that. Nano has made the failed assertion many times, yet every time evidence is request it backs out like a scared child and gets others to do it's dirty work, thinking that will somehow either excuse it's lies, or make us forget that Nano started the lies in the first place.

Feel free to not respond to the bulk of this and crop it from any response so as to avoid being sucked into the web of dishonesty, I shall not blame you.

Well, that's not the same as psychological projection.
This is what we're talking about:

Yes, but is that actually a biological phenomena, or is it an attempt to communicate something that one fears rejection of?

I only take Freud in bits and pieces. Same defense mechanism, different judgement from the outside world. Just trying to be fair and balanced.

Especially since freedom and equal rights are (supposed to be) an important part of the US Constitution, are they not?

Sometimes it can be just something really REALLY dumb, which is in equal dumbness to the mere mentioning of g w.

And that includes freedom of religion, and politics that isn't trying to bring down the government. That's why we reject Communism as a legitimate political party.

That's why the stipulations on discrimination are almost exclusively based on genetics. It's a current problem that we consider religion a discrimination issue. If any religion, which I won't suggest any by name, gets it into their doctrine that they must destroy democracy, then I'll bet that we'll be amending the Constitution to address the subject properly.

So you're saying that you have no *objective* evidence that supports a claim that homosexuality is merely about people lusting after their own bodies.
Yeah, we figured that.

Funny that you would respond for it. You are becoming a very interesting subject.
You still haven't answered my question. What turns you on? Do you wish to have maternal instincts as well? You want to know how breastfeeding feels like? Do im-plants turn you on?

Actually methinks American Communists don't view themselves as trying to bring down the Government but rather have it operate differently. But let's face it, most of America doesn't know the difference between Communism and Stalinism. But I digress...

So religion is based on genetics? Really?

Well the creationists HAVE been trying to do that for over a century. So far (thankfully) they've been unsuccessful for the most part. Doesn't mean to say they won't stop trying though.

Let's see: Murder is cool if God sanctions it. Thou shalt not kill contradicts God-sanctioned killing. And do not put anyone to death without good cause allows for such causes as gays, slaves, magical witches and disobedient sons to name a few.
