    Except the Government regulates, engages in, and recognizes contract law.

    back in my youth the same thing was said- wish they wouldn't flaunt their relationships in public, and try to make 'political' points...

    That was interracial marriage, my how times have changed....

    Oh I misread your post I thought you said you flaunt your "super heroness."

    Anyways, back on topic -

    IMO, homosexuality is unnatural. Not to mention we don't need to create an environment that says you can **** your friend of the same sex just because it's "cool" or odd...

    The whole punk rock movement is a perfect example of my point - kids had mowhawks and **** just because it was different.. Kids do **** just because it's abnormal.

    Typical people are way too susceptible to their environment.

    I think I completely agree with you. But I don't believe it is any of our business what they do, unless it has some sort of adverse affect on us. What adverse effect does same sex marriage have on me?

    Contract law is contract law and marriage is (allegedly) contract but it's not - when it comes to marriage there are exceptions (which I hate BTW).

    Laws shouldn't have exceptions.

    No, the government doesn't regulate contract... There is such a thing called civil law (or in this case contract).

    I was talking about public show of affection, or being as gay as possible just to prove to the world that an individual is gay in a belligerent manner.

    I could care less what people do within the confines of their own homes or who they want to marry... People could marry a tree for all I care..

    Go for it.

    You'll split the Conservative vote just like the Conservatives did in the 90's in Canada and the Liberals held power for over 10 years (and produced 7 straight budget surpluses in a row by the way).

    I think Karl is simply recognizing some demographic shifts that the right-wing needs to address and change for. If not, it will cost them in the future.
    You mean make the GOP become so Liberal that it's just an arm of the Dumbfuque Party? Where would there be any distinction then?

    Oh there is a massive fracture (actually a few) within the republican party...

    I like it tho, at least we have brains and debate and exchange ideas amongst one another unlike the other side (progressives) that is totally cohesive on every issue. Debate is good - it's healthy...
