    I'm very much pro-gay marriage, but when I read words like this, I start to question if that only promotes these kinds of irresponsible posts.
    Always remember, always, always, always, when you're dealing with a liberal you're dealing with someone who is a mass of raw emotions. Think of a teenager going through the worst bout of puberty you can imagine. You can't expect thinking or reason from the liberal in your encounter.

    Um, when it takes rights away from another because one is against such a lifestyle.

    I can't believe some of what I'm reading.

    You're being intolerant to the people who don't share your view. Are you a bigot?

    There is no law that says people can't think marriage is between a man and a woman. There is no law that says little boys shouldn't wear pink or little girls shouldn't wear boxer shorts. But we were all raised with these things being what we're used to. If people think marriage is between two people of the opposite sex, that is their right. You're now trying to regulate the beliefs of private citizens. That's scary.

    What I'm saying is that "supporting traditional marriage," in the colloquial sense, means "being against gay marriage." There ain't too many people who are "against traditional marriage" while simultaneously being pro-gay marriage.

    Nobody said that being anti-gay marriage should be illegal.

    It's rather like the actions and behavior of the LGBT community and their supports are now engaged in is the same behavior that they had legitimate beef with. Odd how now that the tables are turned, it all good and acceptable and perfectly in line with political correctness. Woe be the day when the shifting sands of political correctness catch up with someone's years old position. Dole out the vindictive and retroactive punishment! Political correctness demands it!

    You are not seeing a problem with this?

    As I noted above, I'd be happy with a uniform free-fire zone. Anyone can be fired for any damn reason. I'd love to see a mass firing of every employee who donated in opposition to Proposition 8, just a wholesale mass firing of everyone simply for expressing a political opinion. That would be freaking fantastic. I love it when I see a sword being used to inflict damage also be turned against the self-righteous zealots.

    I'd have to concur with tres borrachos, Kobie. If you define supporting traditional marriage as strictly being a bigoted position against SSM, then there's a lot of people that are going to have to be punished for it, and in the end, would the LGBT community calling for this would end up as bigoted as those that really do want to strip / prevent SSM.

    Now suppose that one would support traditional marriage, and also support SS Civil Unions? What then? Also a bigoted position according to your definition?
