Two dudes getting married doesn't lessen my marriage to my wife. Two heteros 'living in sin' doesn't damage my morals. A woman using birth control doesn't get in the way of my path to Salvation. A woman choosing to abort her fetus doesn't block my line of sight to Jesus.
SoCONs have enough on their plate trying to stay straight with Jesus to be leaning over anyone else's biscuit....
Various American ideological, theological, jurisdictional and just plain obstinate opposition to same sex marriage is really boring.
Either open up marriage to anyone who wants to get married or remove government from the licensing process.
There are a gayzillian other far more important issues to deal with. I don't understand the obsession.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

This thread isn't about sports.
But for me it comes down to we are given only one life to live here on earth and what you want to do with that life really shouldn't be anyone else's business. Unless of course you are fornicating with 5 year olds.
For a lot of people though who have shallow lives they feel the need to be involved in everyone else's lives.
I assume that your opposition to gay marriage comes from a religious standpoint, but I must object to this as well. The U.S. government is not supposed to give a bias to a certain religion or lack thereof, according to the first amendment, nor is it supposed to discriminate upon its citizens. Why on earth do you consider two people wanting to get married something that should be prevented legally, even if you oppose it morally?
Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
