    Exactly. Straight people aren't attracted to people of the same sex, so talking about their right to marry people of the same sex is meaningless. Likewise the silly argument that gay people have the same rights as straight people because they have the right to marry people of the opposite sex is also meaningless since they aren't attracted to people of the opposite sex. You follow?

    The law was changed because people make a lifestyle choice. Should we also pass sharia law because muslims want it?
    Passing sharia law is in no way even logical close to the equivilant of equal gay rights LMAO now you are just making stuff up.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

Third, the gay marriage issue is about equality, and the right to marry the person of your choice. It's essentially the same issue that was decided decades ago in Loving v Virginia, which did away with bans on interracial marriage.

    Really? It is their life style so they should have the right.

    Then of course we should also allow polygamy because it hurts no one it is a lifestyle some prefer.

    Proof that American Muslims don't want Sharia law in our courts? It's pretty obvious, at least with respect to first generation Muslim immigrants, based on the fact that they moved here. Sharia has a pretty strong presence in most middle eastern countries. If Muslim immigrants to the US were happy with a sharia-based system, they wouldn't have come here in the first place. Can you show me proof to the contrary? And please note that I've already pointed out the two exceptions: Sharia as relevant info for demonstration of mental states, and arbitration.

    again you offer NOTHING of substance and talk in circles and deflect LMAO
    I guess in a way thats smart because when you get exposed this badly what are your real options, you either have to admit your are wrong and theres egg on your face or just lie and act like the other 155 posts in this thread didnt happen

    also just to address you meaningless attempt to change the subject, I am 100% fine with polygamy as long as its consensual adults. But again to people that live in REAL life polygamy has one REAL obstacle how do you regulate it law wise, meaning how is property/money/and rights dictated.

    SSM doesnt have that problem, nothing changes besides gaining equal rights.

    but again please offer ANYTHING of substance that addresses your wrongs in this thread and stays on topic.

    also very funny to see you back pedal AGAIN and watch you own logic slap you right in the mouth.
