    Which bolsters my opinion that most people don't really support SSM, they just don't care one way or another.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    And remember especially the perfect example of familial love, the Blessed Virgin Mary.
    Yes, remember the virgin mary who was the first christian to ever lie about infidelity. great family values there. I could get it way back during the days when gods were often lecherous old men who wandered the countryside picking up hot human chicks and impregnating them for fun and profit. At least then you had other stories of god's to back up that excuse, but I don't remember many stories of Yaweh running around knocking chicks up. he seemed like he was a little more sexually frustrated, and like he got more pleasure out of plagues and fiery death from the sky. But I guess it beats getting stoned to death for cheating on your husband with the camel salesman.

    Yup, there is a reason i don't buy the sanctity of marriage in the bible, and that is because even if you buy the story of the immaculate conception god himself violated the sanctity of jesus's parent's marriage. It is not like an almighty being with the powers to create anything at will needed a woman's uterus to begin with. He could have just popped jesus into being, but instead he chose to steal a married chick. So much for straight marriage being sanctified in god's eyes.

    There is some hope for the youth of America. At least here in Texas. My wife and I were grocery shopping yesterday. As we were heading out to or car in the parking lot we noticed a group of about a dozen skaters with their skate boards in the parking lot. These were high school aged boys and girls. I noticed that two of them had tee shirts with the GOP mascot in stars and bars that said Proud Conservative. One of them had a shirt with Man + Woman = Marriage. When we got in the car I asked my wife if she noticed the kids and what they were wearing. She smiled and said yes, there may be hope for our country after all.

    I agree.

    It seems like the only time I hear someone say "hate the sin, love the sinner" is in regards to homosexuality, and not in regards to any of the other long list of sins.

    What does SSM have anything to do with you or your family or your livelihood? Really? You're talking as if legalizing SSM is going to create chaos around the country and I want know how?

    Just a small point. those areas where there are a lot of changes are also the crowded areas. That is why there are more people there who changed pictures, because simply there were more people there. It does not show that less people in the lighter areas support gay marriage, though there is a high probability it may be true, it simply shows there are less people there. Damnit, at least toss a ratio in there to be accurate. Sorry, it5 is not your fault as CNN did the stupid, but you did draw a really bad conclusion from some irrelevant data.

    Oh, and as for your ideas about gay marriage, I just have to say enjoy your days of falling into obscurity and hate. maybe they will have a new jerry springer in a few years and you can get on there with some Klan members who still think that interracial couples are the end of the world.

    Me as a native born 5th generation Texan fully supports equal rights for all Texas citizens gay or straight. Including the right to marriage for Texas gays.
    You are in the minority. As you know the population of your county has increased over the years. Many of those are hispanic. The vast majority of hispanics are very family oriented and support traditional marriage. Austin is the exception and IMO is a disgrace.

    I live in a small town in Oregon, not a college town. Gay kids have been going to the prom as long as I can remember. My kids and their friends wonder, what is the big deal? Why are the older generations so intolerant? These are kids they see every day and hang out with and it's just a kid, not that gay kid at school. They were not exposed to marxist/socialist professors, just every day people who teach in the schools.

    My kids were very well guided, thankfully.

    What was the mission of Jesus? Are you a follower of him? Do you believe he rose from the dead?

    I despise groups like the KKK. I am a partner in an interracial marriage. I believe in tradition and god. On April 1, 2001 Netherlands was the first country to legalize SSM. That was 12 years ago. Traditional marriage has been around for over 2000 years. My point is that SSM is a radical concept and the jury is still out on its effects on society.
