    It's a statement of fact. Eventually those who oppose SSM will be viewed in the same light as those who opposed interracial marriage. The social stigma for being an opponent of SSM grows day by day and it will eventually become completely unacceptable.

    *shrug* If you prefer to be sarcastic by all means continue. But you know it's true just as well as I do. It's a growing stigma borne about by a shifting culture. Soon people who hold those views will be more vigorously stigmatized until eventually it just isn't tolerated in mainstream culture or politics.

    Nope. Unfortunately, America is still trying to catch up. I know that people such as yourself hate to see the granting of civil rights, but just like the bigots before you couldn't stop the train....it continues to roll. Sorry.

    The point has already been made many times over that your side ignores. There is no state interest in denying SSM.

    Yeah sort of like those who said that those who oppose abortion (RE: Roe v Wade) will one day become dinosaurs. How's that working out for ya'll?

    Consider that IF homosexuality is inborn or biological, the very mechanisms that manifest into homosexual behavior could also be the very same mechanisms that cause people to shun and oppose it. I know, a little deeper thought on the subject, but it is hump day..

    Not quite - I simply provided my assessment, based on experience and observation, of how conservatives and liberals approach government policy. That in no way generalizes who liberals are, as individuals - it simply speaks to the form their groupspeak takes on any given issue.

    You're free to dispute any of the points I made, if you can.

    Nope. The bigots are just going to have to learn to live with freedom and equality in America. If they don't like it, it is they who can choose to live somewhere where freedom and equality are not valued.
