    You didn't list the rights you claimed other people have that you are being denied.
    Either list them or simply admit you're shooting blanks so we can end this.

    Yes but as history is showing each year it gathers more and more support. Those against SSM are simply on the losing side of history.

    Yeah... I"m not so sure you can simultaneously lean on the validity and power of a majority opinion while also celebrating the effective annulment of Prop 8....

    Ummm no it's not predictive. Anymore than a civilization rising means it will fall. Greece accepted homosexuality before it's rise to grandeur, many of the scholars we cite on some subjects also believed same sex acts were required to fully develop the adult. Alexander the Great's army practiced homosexuality as it conquered the then known world. The Sacred Band of Thebes was a crack military unit of male lovers.

    Rome practiced homosexual before it rose to greatness. It borrowed much of it's practices from the Greeks. What collapsed the Roman Empire was not gays but the loss of the Middle Class, as Rome became a city of a few elite super wealthy and a vast serf class. Apathy toward the state by the serfs meant Rome couldn't count on mass levies in times of invasion. Roman politics became so internally fierce the nation suffered both internally and externally.

    Study history, not bigotry, you'll be amazed.... and yes America has dumbed down, some of we seem intent on accepting junk science as the last desperate attempt to avoid progress.

    Flaunting is parading around and deliberately calling attention to yourself because, well maybe you didn't get enough attention when you were little?
    No, I mean in public. Flaunting your heterosexuality by kissing a woman. It's offensive, did you lack attention as a child?

    Oh hush. Don't point stuff like that out. That a right wing state like California has such a proposition just points out that state's inherent bigotry toward gays.

    Like how conservatives back unconstitutional actions (prop 8) under the veil of "will of the people." While simultaneously whining constantly about how their imagined version of the constitution is being violated.
