    If this guy was a janitor, it would not be an issue. You don't get it, that is quite obvious.
    I say putting, not pudding. Evidence has nothing whatsoever to do with pudding. Pudding is for eating. And it's not very good for you, either.

    A Pew Research Center poll released in March 2014 researched support for same-sex marriage among Republican leaning voters in the United States. 61% of Republican leaning voters aged 18-29 support allowing same-sex couples to marry, while only 27% of Republican leaning voters over 50 years of age are supportive.[14]

    A Washington Post/ABC News poll from February–March 2014 found a record high of 59% of Americans approve of same-sex marriage, with only 34% opposed and 7% with no opinion. The poll also revealed that 53% of the population in the States that currently do not allow same-sex couples to marry approve of same-sex marriage. 50% of respondents said that the United States Constitution guarantees the freedom to marry the person of one's choice, regardless of that persons's sex or sexual orientation. 41% disagreed, and 9% had no opinion.[15] The same poll also found that 81% of people found that businesses should not be allowed to refuse to serve gays and lesbians. 16% disagreed, and 3% had no opinion. 78% thought that gay couples can be "just as good parents" as straight couples, while 18% disagreed and 4% had no opinion.[16]


    Really....at least try to do the barest level of research before you spout off.

    Hey, if you like buttsex, gay is OK.

    I haven't researched any of this stuff. I don't really care, honestly. My personal experience is that about half the people I meet on a day to day basis are for it, half are against. The poll you cited said 60%. That's about half.

    Wow, tough choice, a telephone poll versus the outcome of Proposition 8. Hmm, which is a better measure for what people believe, how they actually vote or what they tell some random chick who phones them?

    2.)Yes, and I am for changing that status to them being equal.
    3.) But I guess you failed to understand that when I said Marriage should be a religious only, that means the State should recognize that as a civil union only and not given greater status.
    4.)This is a bull**** statement.
    5.) I am for civil unions for all.
    6.) The term marriage is a religious one and one that shouldn't be recognized by the State. I agree with Sally Kohn on this.
    7.)Read link above and you'll get where I am going.
    8.)So, there is nothing wrong with that view?
    8.) So it's okay that I voted against Same-Sex Marriage in Ohio (Ohio Issue 1 in 2004) because I don't believe marriage should be a term used?
    9.)Again, you need to read the Link and you'll get what I am saying.
    10.)And I support removing the term marriage and calling it a civil union. Basically, you get a civil union if you have a justice of the peace do it and if you choose to go to get "married" in a church it doesn't change the title.
    1.) they simply dont matter
    2.) they can not be equal
    3.) again religion has no place in this discussion and is meaningless. Legal marriage is here to stay and isnt going anywhere.
    4.) nope its factually true.
    5.) which is not equal rights
    6.) your meaningless opinion on this doesnt matter to the subject at hand, marriage is not owned or invented by religion.
    7.) doesnt matter where you are going, the fact remains that religious marriage has nothing to do with legal marriage.
    8.) with the "VIEW", nope
    9.) depends what you mean by ok?
    yes its ok because the state wrongly gave you that option
    yes its "ok: for you to think that way cause you have that right

    but to vote against it is in fact a bigoted thing to do
    10.) nope because it doesnt change any facts
    11.) theres no need to make somethign a lesser and deny people rights, so no thanks
    again churches can do whatever they want there ZERO need to change anythign about legal marriage

    1.)its called facts and reality
    2.) yes by definition it factually makes him a bigotry
    3.) i agree since i have facts and the definition to support those facts and all you have is your opinion, you do need to learn terms. THats good advice for yourself, you should take it.

    And I am not saying separate but equal. I am saying get rid of the word marriage in the matter of state recognizing a relations. Rather instead of issuing a marriage license.. issue a civil union license for all. That's equality.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything.

    Where did he refuse to accept a homosexual? Again, bigot doesn't apply.
