    3.) please stop with this, this illogical inane strawman has NEVER worked and gets laughed at by everybody educated and honest.

    I do have the same rights has you since im straight but there are many of my fallow americans that dont share the same rights as me and im fighting for them because im weird like that.

    I want all my fellow americans to share the same rights i have, i care about them.

    THis is way im so happy equal rights is winning and this is another injustice, bigotry and discrimination that will be put to rest. at least law wise anyway.

    Are you sure you know your point
    normal or abnormal is irrelevant when discussing whether or not homosexuality is "good" or "bad"
    Then
    it is an undeniable fact that statistically homosexuality is abnormal
    Wouldn't abnormal=bad and normal=good, which you just said was irrelevant? BTW, since when are rights only for the statistically norm?

    What is going to happen is enough people are going to poke the bear and get that bear angry enough to force a Constitutional Amendment that the minority aren't going to like and one they cannot get an activist judge to overturn.. Better leave well enough alone, fight the battle state by state and forget it in the states that will never authorize SSM. Don't get it, why is marriage so important to SS couples? What does marriage offer than a Civil Union doesn't? To me it is just a large group of vocal malcontents who want to destroy tradition and history for their own perceived gain. What exactly do they gain?

    I guess for most it is a symbol of societal acceptance... but ultimately acceptance is something given or withheld by *people*, not awarded by courts.

    1.) what bear? the majority of people in the US support equal rights. all of the polls in the last year or two rang from 53-58%
    and why didnt that happen for interracial marriage when 80+% were against it

    sorry YOU are the minority
    but regardless there will be ZERO amendment making gays second class citizens

    Ill bet anything you want, id bet the farm the tractor, and auntie em lol thinking there will be an amendment is lunacy lol

    2.) nope the majority of people are fighting for equal rights and laughing at the conspiracy theorist. THier fear, anger and panic is hilarious.
    3.) this is already happening and equal rights is winning
    4.) nope equal rights will win there too and the best part they are HELPING it win with the bans and other things that can be challenged in court its great!

    Its actually so much poetic justice that some of the bans helped equal rights
    5..) this is just a stupid question beyond measurement. Why was equal rights so important to women, minorities, why is it important to anybody. WHy do i care about it im not gay? if you dont know the answer to that question im sure freedom rights and liberty in general are very confusing to you along with the rest of this country.

    6.) wow, see #5 civil unions are factually not equal and cant be made to be. You cant be serious, seems like you dont get history either then

    7.) there will factually be no history/tradition destroyed LMAO another idiotic failed strawman that nobody educated and honest will ever take seriously.
    if you disagree by all means, PLEASE PLEASE tell me the "tradition" that will be factually "destroyed" cant wait to read that fantasy

    8.) agains see #5 equal rights

    You do realize that the definition of marriage has changed significantly throughout history don't you?

    Also, for a conservative to seek to limit the freedoms of others seems a bit hypocritical.

    Why can't you retain your understanding of what marriage is and seek the company of like minded people. How does the fact that others may see it differently keep you from doing that?

    anybody that thinks gaining equal rights will just magical grant social acceptance is severely misguided. Not saying YOU said that just pointing out that.

    I mean dont get me wrong, education and equal rights will help sexuality not be so judged BUT its 2014 and there are still plenty of racists, misogynists, bigots and people that do not accept interracial marriage etc etc.

    The law and rights cant control that, it just helps prevent illegal activity related to such.. . . .

    peoples feelings are peoples feelings so your last statement couldnt be more true

    Here we go again, having too much faith in polls. Polls don't matter on a national level because people can skew the polls whatever way they want and depending on how the question is asked or the attitude of the person being asked the question. Many people say they support SSM to pollsters but don't vote that way in the voting booth. That is a fact.

    The Bear is the silent majority and those are the people SS couples are alienating forcing acceptance through the courts and not at the ballot box. That isn't a winning proposition.

    As for the rest of your post, I am done with this. SSM issues sicken me when there are so many more important and serious issues facing this country. Making it a equal rights issue is nothing more than a ruse.

    Hey even that pig scalia admitted it's inevitable, don't blame me! Human rights is the #1 function of government, yes, but it hardly takes a concerted effort either. All it takes is one SCOTUS ruling and you're cooked. You want to harp on ballots of 5 years ago like it means anything? Well, 5 years from now gay marriage will be legal in every state!

    Why don't you go chastise the mormons and christian right for throwing millions in deceitful scare tactics at a "non #1 issue"? Or at least take your own advice and cease discussing it. Be consistent at some turn.
