    Exactly. This bears repeating.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Same question should be asked of all the people vehemently denying that there's any "slippery slope." There seem to be quite a few people who are all for SSM but get the willies when it comes to other arrangements.

    Love, of course, is love.

    Unless it started a trend of judging each case on its merits then I don't see the connection with gay marriage.

    There's an even easier way. Make sure you include all details you want in the contract with your partners, because for the rest you will be told that you can solve that **** yourself.

    Yep. That strong personal desire to have your way be the way.

    Personal preferences or ideas should not be regulated by government, at the same time people with funky lifestyles shouldn't shove their lifestyles down others throats in an attempt to mainstream their odd relationships...

    What exactly does this mean?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
