    My sincerly held beliefs are what piss people off. I don't have to kid or make things up to piss people off, I just have to be my natural self.

    Like shooting rioters. I'm not kidding or trying to troll when I support killing rioters. If you riot you should be shot where you stand.

    The problem is you people assume I'm insincere.

    which is as useless to them as limiting your marital choices to men only would be to you. you have the right to marry someone you're in love with, and the state will give you benefits because of the marriage. in much of the country, gays don't have the same right.

    Gays already do both.

    Wrong.

    Rioters should be given the option of ceasing their violence against people and property or to be shot.

    The second they continue their violence against people and property after being given that option, they should be shot.

    Just wanted to clarrify that for you.

    If all persons in the USA have the unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, gay marriage should be legal.

    Not if the state can show a legitimate state interest is furthered by restricting marriage based on close relation status. Which, so far, they have successfully been able to do, at least when there is blood relation and/or they were raised in the same household. I believe the state can show a legitimate state interest being furthered in not allowing parents to marry their children or siblings to marry in two ways, huge potential for genetic problems in offspring and undue influence in the relationship prior to age of consent. Neither of these things would be an issue in same sex marriage and the state is unable to show a true state interest is being furthered by restricting marriage based on sex/gender.

    There is a legitimate public health concern against allowing inbreeding.

    Plus the fact that such relationships are often the result of parental abuse.

    Yes, it is usless, but still equal treatment.

    you have the right to marry someone you're in love with....
    No I don't. There are all kinds of restrictions I'm under. I cannot marry just whomever I love. If I fall in love with someone who's married, for example, I'm sol.

    I never took that option away. I'm not forcing anyone to riot, they retain the right, option and ability to stop at any time...or better yet, not to start.

    With the first broken window or flipped car sould the arms of citizens cut rioters down.

    If my Guard unit activates to counter a riot, understand that I will follow the order to fire.

    no, you aren't. she can get a divorce and then marry you. happens every single day. your example isn't analogous.

    I actualy know a few hetero guys who probably would. They grew up best friends and are like brothers. They do everything together.
