    It is mostly in the south where you would find people who disapprove of interracial marriage. You can deny all you want, but I know people who find interracial relationships disgusting. More than many would like to know. Some I am related to. And I know some of them would not mind at all making interracial relationships illegal again. It is the same thing, no matter how much you wish to deny it.

    It will be in my lifetime, likely in the next decade, that same sex marriage will become legal throughout the US. I have no doubt. My generation, which are in their 30s, are much more accepting of same sex relationships. And the generations after mine are even more okay with same sex marriage.

    The bigger issue has been explained to.... you need to read a little OK
    Ummm you are the one who needs to read. If you look at the AIDS epidemic globally straight people were the ones who were spreading it. Keyword there is globally.

    Yet if the same residents try to give perks to the type of stable union that can physically produce kids, we are told that is not allowed.
    I think the logic escapes you. Your post has zero to do with what I am talking about.

    There is a difference between you or I voting based on our convictions. We are not a paid government representative. We elect those representatives based on each of our belief systems.

    And I didn't say it was a requirement. I'm saying that this is not representing the people and the people's positions.

    The people he's paid by elected him in to represent them to the best of his ability. What consistutes the best of his ability is HIS JUDGEMENT. If the people don't like it, then they have a chance to vote him out later....no different then they'd have if he did exactly what the polls told him "the people" wanted and then they still voted him out.

    It is no less legitimate to ignore polls and what they say the "people want" then it is to follow them strictly. Representitives in government are elected to do the job to the best of their ability and to represent the people to the best of their ability...they are not elected, and there is zero requirement that they act in such a way, to do exactly what polls say the people want.
    I disagree. If the people overwhelmingly support a particular position, a representative not assisting to legislate that position because his personal view oppose it, is not representing the people.

    I would agree with this EXCEPT for the fact that Christie has indicated that he is pretty sure that it will pass. By NOT signing the bill, he is saying "screw you" to the people he is paid to represent... because he wants to.

    Now, itís also true that "Not every time a man has sex with another man will they get AIDS. It does, however, significantly increase their chances, and it is more likely than if they do NOT engage in sex with men." [That is, if instead they only engage in sex with women.]

    This is largely true for the simple reason that there is a much higher incidence of HIV in the population of "men who have sex with men." The odds are higher that the person you're having sex with is infected. Men who have sex with other men need to be especially cautious, because they're in a high risk group.
    Dangerous sexual behavior increases the risk of the spread of AIDS regardless of sexual orientation. I'm not sure how much clearer I can be. If you have unprotected sex, you put yourself at risk.

    And as far as my comment above, the spread of AIDS IS caused by dangerous sexual practices or IV drug abuse. That does not mean that EVERY time someone practices dangerous sex they will get AIDS, but it DOES mean that NOT engaging in these practices will not cause the disease to spread.

    So what? Like I said earlier, society can't help but progress. Even if all states ban gay marriage, the issue won't go away.

    2. You better be.
    The problem with your premise is that it relies on 3 pretty big presumptions.

    1. That God exists. I'm not going to spark a whole religious debate, but suffice it to say that you can't prove God's existence anymore than I can disprove it.

    2. That the Bible is 100% the word of God.

    3. That your interpretation of the verses that many consider to address homosexuality are right.

    That being said, I'm more than comfortable not worrying about those being true. I'm not going to change my viewpoints on certain issues out of fear that your God will punish me for feeling this way.

    3. take the time to read the thread. you might find out its all there.
    Cut the coy bull****, Navy. You pointed out that there was an underlying issue to all of this, and I'm asking you directly what it is. If you can't answer the question, don't. But don't tell me to read through the thread again to find this mysterious underlying issue that you seem to believe exists. If you are going to bring it up, then discuss it and cut out the childish nonsense.

    4. horse**** AIDS was originally 99% a gay mans disease. Its not any more but the most prevalent people to get AIDS today are gay men that partake in anal sex.............
    You don't have to restate your absurd beliefs. You are more than welcome to believe that crap if you want.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

    Considering that I have been faithfully married for 22 years. Have never committed adultrey by sleeping with a married woman while her husband was away on duty. Have not spents months frequenting whorehouses in my "youth". I have no fear of God's judgment. Can you say the same?

    disagree.

    on top of your ivory soap box you thumb your nose down on those that disagree, but I'm pointing out that your disagreement is shallow and inconsistent.
