    You preach acceptance, I STILL want to know why people can't accept that some people are against gay marriage. It's like preaching acceptance only if its something YOU want accepted.

    Hypocrites.

    That's up for debate. Eating fast food harms people way more than a joint does, you gonna fail miserably and say people can eat what they want, but not smoke what they want? So its selective freedom, huh?

    Hey, if we're going to preach about freedom and gays, why not about freedom and straights? Why can't I own an automatic weapon? Why do I have to bend over and let the gov't screw me in the ass (no pun intended) if I want to obtain an automatic weapon? Automatic weapons don't harm anyone, either. I have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms, gays don't have a right to gay marriage. So why the selective "feel good" behavior, Red?

    Hurt more is not the issue. Dragonfly said "hurts no one", and you followed with smoking weed hurts no one. That is false. How much it hurts is possibly debatable, but it is harmful. It is therefore a different situation and the comparison breaks down.

    If they get married/civil unionized, you can be against their lifestyle. But if we enact a law that takes away their civil liberties, then we have imprisoned them to our lifestyle. We don't have to agree with their life style and we don't even have to accept it. We can't make laws that take away their rights to make decisions for themselves as free adult human beings.

    I'm all for states rights but not in a manner that allows them to discriminate against minority groups.

    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?
    Not only that they can power of attorney,wills and other legal binding contracts to ensure that the other can make medical decisions and leave property to the other.
    "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"

    Nobody said that, and you know it.

    Good going NC. I stand behind you. All this "you have to accept gay" crap is disgusting. It IS immoral, and it goes directly against my religious beliefs. Since when do I not have a right to believe that gay marriage is wrong? It seems that its wrong if I don't accept it, but if you push acceptance so strongly, why don't you accept the fact that I do NOT accept it?
    Yet another straw man. Nobody is asking you to change your religious beliefs. Nobody gives a crap whether you personally approve or disapprove of same-sex marriage. Let me put this in big letters so you stop bringing it up.

    Nobody cares whether or not you accept it.

    Your moral disapproval is not sufficient grounds to deny other people the right. They are asking for the right, not your approval.



    Edit: I want to make it clear that I am only against gay marriage. I am not against gays as I know gay people and I wish them the best. I do not wish harm or anything bad to gays, I just do not accept their unions as marriage. I am not against calling them civil unions. I do not believe in "gay rights" as being gay doesn't give you any special rights.
    Getting married is not a "special right," and since when does YOUR church own the word marriage and not mine?

    Are you serious? No you aren't, you're just joking, nevermind.

    They decided they were gay. If they want to get married, find a woman or man or whatever they need. Everyone is discriminated against, you don't hear people crying about it do you? I get discriminated against every time I go to Wal Mart because I'm the wrong color. Now, WHERE ARE MY RIGHTS?

    Any Christian church cannot marry a gay couple according to the bible. If they don't follow the bible, then that's fine. But it's not marriage.

    Nobody has to care what I think, but in the flip side, NOBODY CARES WHAT YOU THINK EITHER. Oh, I bet you didn't want to hear that did you?

    There are over 10,000 federal benefits of marriage, and about 17,000(IIRC) state level benefits of marriage. What you mention is not even the tip of the iceberg.
