    That's all fine and good, but in reality Christians are marginalized regularly in this country while Muslims are feared and held as sacred. A law that is not enforced is useless.

    Mr. Nick is not an idiot. He knows full well how discrimination is directly written into our States' constitutions. Repeating that back to him ("proving it") is not going to advance the conversation in anyway.

    Gay marriage does no demonstrable harm to your marriage.

    You have no right to a words definition. Where does the constitution grant you one?
    The Constitution is not a document that defines the world. To me marriage means one man and one woman. To you it means something different. You seem to think you have the right to force me to think the way you do.nIt's not going to happen.

    There is a difference between ILLEGAL and NOT LEGISLATED....

    WOW, 1 out of 50 states took DOMA to the dome and exercised their Tenth Amendment rights.

    I can emphasize with you. Your religious freedoms to exclude gays, because you disrespectfully view them as immoral, perverted and hell-bound, is being infringed upon.

    You mean like racial quotas and "protected classes?" - discrimination like that?

    You know who is discriminated against consistently and its absolutely politically correct to do so?? straight white male Christians - they're the punching bag of society...

    False assumption. We have several gay people in our church. Nice people, don't have a problem with them. Their morality is not my issue and it is not my place to judge them.

    What, doesn't fit your stereotype of Christians? How about that, not all conservatives hate gay people after all.
