    Not all all. I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. I am a Christian...but I am not "CHRISTIAN". I have found over the years that those who feel the need to scream their "Christianity" for the ears of all mankind to hear, almost without exception are the ones who know very little about the man they proclaim to worship. They are like the Pharisees who would stand on the street corner and pray so that all mankind could see how "spiritual" they are...without realizing that God has little need for or tolerance for these public displays of religiosity.

    massive demographic change in the USA does not favor those opposed to ssm

    The younger generation who support it will be voting age soon and the older folks who oppose it will be pushing up grass soon.

    Well, David...I'll agree that you have a moral compass, but that doesn't make it "THE DEFINING MORAL COMPASS FOR ALL". And to assume your "moral compass" is superior to others...is a bit grandiose.

    Um, you recall prop 8 was actually passed by the people. They were not for gay marriage.

    A conservative court ruled it too. Seems like even some conservatives understand equality. *Claps*
