    Because STRAIGHT people want it to be. The majority of straight people do not want civil unions for themselves, they want the benefits the state gives them with marriage. And ultimately it would be the people to vote on it.

    Look, I agree with you it would be better, but face it we are the small minority in thinking this way. The lawmakers and people voting them in do not feel that way as a majority.

    Business opportunity: Go public with a political stance, create a support day, rake in dough. Let's see who else can come up with one.

    The prices at Chik-fil-A are not cheap either.

Holding the opinion that SSM should not be allowed is not intolerant or biggoted in itself. Calling someone a bigot just for that opinion is dishonest. Doesn't matter what we did before regarding rights of any group. As of now there has been no failure of application of the 14th amendment even if it has been declared so in the opinion of one or two judges. Declaring victory and the moral high ground and making that the starting point of the debate is not fair. I know this is not going to matter to anyone who is passionately for SSM but I grow weary of the term "right" being abused in the debate.
    I re-read her post and didn't see the word bigot ... where did I miss it?

    Do you believe that a right does not exist until granted by the government? Do you not consider marriage at all a right? If so, the equal rights amendment does cover it. If not, then how do you classify it? Is it a privilege? If so, what is the criteria for that privilege?

    I dont know about that. The majority of those who support SSM are straight people. Honestly I don't think the majority of straight people care about what the government calls it. They will call it what they want to and it doesn't have any effect on their relationship with their spouse. As far as what the government calls it it is irrelevant to most as long as their spouse gets their benefits the name doesn't matter much.

    That's fine. I'd agree with that. That's not a stance that's going to get any traction with the religious right, however.

    Kind of like how people who were already too fat went and paid good money for fried chicken to show solidarity against it.

    I don't understand what that has to do with Liberalism, on the other hand.

    Then why hasn't it been done? Seems easy and simple enough if the majority want to do it right?
