"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
When prop 8 is shot down by the courts, which it most likely will be, this will be shot down too. When DOMA is overturned by the courts, which is almost certain, it makes this amendment mostly irrelevant. This is the last stand of old people who fear change and the far religious right.
When you accept, and 50 states accept, that people should have a right to smoke weed in their own home not harming a soul, I'll accept gay marriage.
And how in the hell does gay marraige HELP anyone? Because it's simply a word, right? They can already live together, do everything they want. Why are gays so stuck on the word marraige?

Tigger’s comment was his views were not immoral because he has tradition and human existence. I commented that there are documents that show homosexuality not only existed, but was “traditional”.
I agree that acknowledging homosexuality is not the equivalent to gay marriage, but then again, I never said that they were equivalent.
