    And that was wrong. Probably, among other reasons, there wasn't interracial civil unions, either. And if there were, IMO, these interracial unions wouldn't have the R&R of marriage.

    I consider myself a moderate. I suspect many rabid lefties wouldn't.

    Your poll records the permissiveness by the American people of gay rights.
    This is where the disconnect in these polls occur: people assume permissiveness of gay rights equals SSM.
    legal same sex partnership is marriage. Marriage is a civil union.

    Cute. You still need to actually think about it.

    You should try to explain that to Wolfsgirl. Good luck trying.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Yes. One can, at least somewhat, exert control over their sexual attractions.

    If by "control" you mean repress them or ignore them or otherwise fail to act on them, that is obvious. If by exert control you mean change them, you are wrong, and you've already tried and failed to make that point.

    But there is no reason that homosexuals should have to just because some do not approve of same sex relationships.
