    Dying at this considering your stance on same-sex marriage.

    Perhaps you haven't noticed, but I have posted more than once in recent months, that my position on that has changed slightly. I no longer actively oppose it, even though I have personal reservations.

    Yeah, get back to me when you have something other than 'The Weekly Standard'.

    You don't "actively" oppose it, so does that mean you passively(?) oppose it? In any case, if you still oppose it, invoking the the minority/minority argument to support your position remains ironic.

    It means I no longer consider it as an issue when selecting candidates to vote for.

    As you wish. I could call it ironic that you support certain minority rights vigorously but others maybe not so much? But whatever.

    I doubt there is much he could do other than order stepped up enforcement of existing laws, more investigations, etc. Anything beyond that would get an expedited review to the SCOTUS and hand Obama a major humiliation as he tries to build his legacy.

    You can call your perception of me whatever you want. Doesn't change the fact that when you have said that gay rights are no big deal since gays are a tiny minority (I'm fairly sure you said this after your conversion) and then you invoke that minority/majority argument, it's ironic and hilarious.

    So my assertion that I will no longer stand in your way politically on this issue means nothing then? You demand full acceptance, agreement and active support or nothing perhaps? I must bow down and swear fealty to your cause or I'm a hypocrite? Will the Thought Police come and get me because one issue is more important to me than another issue?

    Apparently there is plenty of irony and hypocrisy to go around.
