    Look down, your slip (ignorance) is showing.

    "People" desire freedom in more ways than I could possibly present.

    I understand you do not like "The Gays".....but your opinion is a bit irrelevant in society.

    When have I even hinted at caring about gays, let alone not liking them? There is very little about this issue that involves freedom, and no, the people actually don't desire freedom. Most people desire safety, which calls for the restriction of freedom.

    The majority of the people may not be truly opposed to SSM, but on the other hand they may not truly be for it either, nationally. And so we should let the people in those communities in those states choose their own culture. Vote with your feet if you do not like it... but to impose the minority will on the majority, well, that smacks of tyranny...but...

    Who cares about tyranny as long as you get what you want, right?



    Works for me.

    No need, it's come to us. The black-robed ayatollahs have full control over our country.

    No, but attendance needs to remain optional.

    Why does the constitution mean what you say it means?

    Are you under the impression that you're going to be forced to marry a dude?

    It's a power reserved for the states in accordance with the constitution. For some reason you left out the second part.

    It doesn't matter how many people vote for it, an equal protection violation is an equal protection violation.

    You are on the side of tyrants. Not me. You are the one demanding that the minority rights be suppressed based on your personal disapproval.

    If you call yourself a libertarian and are against legalizing same-sex marriage, you should ponder the apparent discrepancy.

    Aww, poor guy is mad about losing his right to vote away someone else's rights.
