Let's narrow the field a bit.

How about putting marriage of divorced people to a vote?

Some of your fundie friends would love to ban that. After all, it's banned in their bibles with just a few exceptions.

Fundie? Don't think I know any. It's estimated that only about 10% of the US population is fundamentalist. The size of their minority isn't much larger than yours. It wouldn't be meaningful. You would probably get a better turnout than the APA did when they voted homosexuality out of the DSM though. I respect a person's right to practice their faith. I have no respect for gay advocates that preach their values to the children of straight families that want no part of it.

As long as some parents insist on teaching bigotry to their children, we'll be countering that message with the truth.

So you only support putting your right to marry up for a vote because you're convinced it would always pass.

Same here. I support putting marriage for same-sex couples up for a vote when I'm convinced it will pass as well.

Reality is a word that covers just about everything. Did someone have to teach you that gays exist? I gotta tell you, you keep me laughing out loud.

Yes. I didn't realize it until I was a senior in high school and my Psychology teacher talked about going into a gay bar by mistake.

And what makes you think I have to answer your off topic questions? Would it be that sense of entitlement you always bring up?

I told you about my job at GE three times. I'll tell you again. My job was to pick out the fake lawyers from the real ones. I have 25 uears experience. You're a fake.

Because unlike you, I understand what the polls represent.

I have no doubt the majority of Americans overall support marriage equality for same-sex couples, but that doesn't mean the majority those who actually turn out to voter in every state or every election will currently support it.

So I support puting it to a vote where and when I'm convinced we can win.

Silly insults aside, why would Jane having kids be any of your concern, of of interest on this particular thread topic?

You might ask a few others, though, if you really need to know about gay folks and parenting. Many gay folks are raising great kids, and some of those parents post on these threads.

Same sex couples marrying are equally normal and equally beneficial, but must less familiar.

That's why the majority should never get to vote on which basic civil and human rights a minority group should have.

But, if votes must happen, we will work to win.

And we are succeeding. Look at the pols - the younger folks are shedding their parent's bigotry at an amazing pace. And that's only going to continue.
