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"

    What is a Diesel Dyke?
    Definition: A Diesel Dyke is a very butch or manly lesbian, especially one who is very aggressive.
    I don't need you to tell me what any kind of lesbian is. Thanks for playing, though, and I'll look forward to your educating me on what a "boi" and a "stud" is too.

    Here's a far less biased write up being that it is not from a murdoch newspaper unlike the OP.

    Not at all... The critisism is that they made a big deal out of this issue, but in the end it obviously was the big deal they made it out to be, based on the lack of turnout.

    In the end, these kiss-ins/kiss-offs are just one more way the gay community misses the mark. You want to call it a civil rights issue? Then don't act the clown. If gays want their civil rights -- if it really is a civil rights issue, then the way to do that is to convince the US Congress of that fact and get "sexual orientation" added to The Civil Rights Act. Unless and until the Federal government does that, it's not a civil right guaranteed by the US Constitution...it's at a whim of each individual state.

    If gay rights are added to the Civil Rights Act it will do the same thing it did with the black community. It will make the gov't look tolerant while the population didn't change at all. Thats the fallacy about the Civil Rights Act. Do people really believe that formerly racist people suddenly lost that hatred the day that bill was signed? No, they didn't. It just swept it under the rug. Americans don't like being forced to do things, as evidenced by the backlash against the ACA. I think we should just let states handle it. Then, maybe some states will realize that they have no place in legislating things such as marriage, get a backlash in people moving out of their states, and it will solve the problem on its own. If that doesn't happen, at least gays know they have friendly states to go to.

    I think that there are very few people who have strong opinion about gay marriage.
    I think that most people who hold an opinion don't hold the opinion very strongly. Not that they could be easily swayed, but that they have many things higher on their agenda sheets.

    So anything which detracts from the message, like trying to bully someone into shutting up about their opinion on the matter, detracts from the potential support.
    I may be wrong.

    I'm not sure it should be a state thing...just haven't thought that through. I talk about it because of posters here singing the "It's a civil right!" song. As to the Civil Rights Act? I disagree with you somewhat there.

    The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Pub.L. 88-352, 78 Stat. 241, enacted July 2, 1964) was a landmark piece of legislation in the United States[1] that outlawed major forms of discrimination against racial, ethnic, national and religious minorities and women. It ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public ("public accommodations").
    Civil Rights Act of 1991 provided for the right to trial by jury on employment discrimination claims and introduced the possibility of emotional distress damages, while limiting the amount that a jury could award.
    I do agree with you that it changed no one's mind. But it did change their actions.

    As a Realtor, I've seen more than my share of attempted housing discrimination against blacks, even today. The Civil Rights Act and Fair Housing? People may think it . . . but they don't/can't do it.

    I agree with this. I'm not against gays being allowed to marry, but I really don't care that they're not allowed to marry. It's just not an important issue, IMO.
