    You are entitled to your opinions and beliefs, as wrong as they may be and as inanely as you want to hold to them.

    Like I said in my previous to Lursa. Y'all continue this conversation without me. Thanks for the good time.
    But nobody is asking you to support their relationship. Nobody asked me to support yours either. Your approval isn't necessary here.

    I don't support young women going to Justin Bieber concerts, but that doesn't mean I would vote to make Justin Bieber concerts illegal.

    I'm not sure where you got the idea that you are being asked to approve of same-sex marriage.

    That something isn't a protected class has no bearing on whether or not it should be.

    Not that polygamy and SSM really have much to do with each other, but, you know... facts. There is definitely a legal argument for polygamy. It just doesn't have anything to do with SSM.

    Have at it.
    Making something illegal based on how sinful it is according to a religion is unconstitutional.

    IIRC, I don't believe I asked anyone to cohere to my beliefs or values during this thread. But, one couldn't tell that from the responses.

    so you cant ignore sin and allow it and their are laws that deal with things you consider sinful

    and your not trying to force the dictates of your faith on any one

    how's that work?

    You are asking people to do just that when you vote against same-sex marriage. Voting against someone else's rights is not just expressing your beliefs, it's taking action.

    Conversely, two dudes getting married in no way affects your beliefs. They are not forcing anything upon you, because the state recognizing their union doesn't affect you.

    You can believe that two dudes getting married is wrong, that's your choice. Your belief on the matter doesn't harm others, so it's no business of mine demanding that the government ban your beliefs. It's the action you take that harms others.
