There just isn't a rational argument against gay marriage. It's that simple.

Not one single time has there been any popular approval of gay marriage, or the gay lifestyle. Every single "gain" in this issue has been courts unconstitutionally overturning popular and legislative disapproval of gay marriage. In other words, courts have outrageously expanded their legislating from the bench, which is not their right.

Every judge ruling in favor of homosexual depravity has created brand new rulings and have robbed the constitutional right of the people to make laws governing morality and the safety of their families, etc. The same exact rationalization for their rulings could be used to validate polygamy, etc. They don't have the right to impose depravity on the citizens and belong in prison themselves for doing so.

People have the right to pass laws making certain human behaviors illegal. People passing laws to make certain human behaviors illegal are not bigoted. Judges usurping the rights of people are the ones, who are bigoted. It is utterly insane for a nation to allow a few radicals within one and one half percent of the population to redefine morality and force their depraved behavior on the children of new generations.

What you say is blatantly UNTRUE. Several states have gone the normal legislative route, and their state legislatures have passed a Marriage Equality Law.

And you've never explained how a married gay or lesbian couple in Iowa, or New Jersey, affects your life one iota. Are you going to explain that ?

Kindly define " morality " for us .. If you succeed in convincing everybody then ( and only then ) can you expect your notions on the matter to acquire validity .- " There's no good or bad but thinking makes it so " ( William Shakespeare ).

First off........there DOESN'T need to a popular approval for Gay and Lesbians.....you can continue to say and feel what ya want!!!

Secondly.......there is NO Gay lifestyle or Gay marriage!!!

Thirdly..........we have won at the ballot box in 2012 in case you forgot.......and when unconstitutional amendments are voted on, the party that feel injured has a right to have that harm fixed by any means........in this case by the courts!!!

Fourthly.......Laws CAN NOT be made based on one's morality..........that was why Sodomy laws were tossed!!!

The Judges are DOING their job......and if they were ruling as you wanted them to....you be giving praises!!!

No, they DON'T.......what is allowed is for laws to be made in order to prevent harm to others.......like rape, which is about force, power and control.....and usually without consent.......that is a crime and should be punished..........what you want is to have laws violating the rights of Gays and Lesbians who are NOT forcing themselves on others!!!

How do you truly know that Gays and Lesbians ONLY make up 1 to 1 1/2 percent of the total population? My guess is you are clueless, but just can't help showing your hatred and bigotry!!!

It's true that certain behaviors can be made illegal when they affect others. Gay people having equal rights and getting married affects nobody but the parties involved so there is no basis for a law to protect people.

Morality, on the other hand, has consistently evolved from the more conservative (think how people dressed and acted 100 years ago) to the more liberal (today).

My grandmother used to say "Your right to swing your fist ends at the tip of my nose." I wish people would remember that saying.

And your side's constant assertion that gay = pedophile is slanderous. It's a nasty lie intended to demonize and "other" and group with whom you and your ilk have a problem and you should stop perpetuating that lie to the American public.

The entire anti-gay movement is based primarily in lies and misinformation and if y'all stopped parroting talking points and did some actual research you might find how shaky the ground is on which you base all your "supposed" arguments.

Brian Brown and the rest of the anti equality crowd will keep up the fight as long as they can derive an income off their narrow minded views. We already see some of the other anti gay moving on to more fertile economic ventures. Look to Tony Perkins trying to reinvent himself as political commentator. These people will disappear when the money goes away.
