What makes this an issue now and one that by all estimates involves less than 5% of the American population? I contend it has nothing to do with pursuit of happiness but rather malcontents who are looking for and seeing attention. I have no use for these people nor for their cause especially if it isn't passed by the state electorate
    You really aren't capable of seeing things from others' point of view i guess. Trust me we have no use for you either

    There was no gay rights movement prior to 1970s to speak of because so few were even openly gay. Stonewall happened in 1969 and in san fran there were clashes with cops thru the 1970s. In other words, you couldn't even go to a gay bar without being assaulted by cops. It's just like any other civil rights movement. Progress happens (extremely) gradually while waiting for those opposed to die off, so here we are.

    See, again, you know so little about genetics, and yet you continue to spout off information as if it is fact.

You know the outcome of your efforts and that is why people like you don't want a Constitutional Amendment put to the people. The outcome won't be what you want.

    What doesn't make sense to me is the passion you have and the excuse you make about this being about pursuit of happiness. This is nothing but personal arrogance and a malcontent looking for attention. find it someplace else. The people of your state should decide the issue and that should be the case in every state.
    Oh, what a mind reader we have here! You can stop putting words in my mouth anytime, cause i've said nothing about pursuit of happiness or attention. Especially on some anonymous forum, attention whoring is quite an absurd accusation.

    It's about equality only. Similar to employment discrimination, some take the stance we should not have such laws period, but that so long as we do, sexuality needs to be covered as well. You know, because that's equality. Although i disagree in that i think we do need anti discrimination laws, at least they take a rational, consistent approach. This "everyone can get married or protected from discrimination *except* those homos" is simply coming from hatred. At least admit to that

Religious freedom and gun rights are paramount. Democracy, civility, all other rights that do not benefit the religious right are of no interest to the conservatives.

    So you got married just so you could dodge taxes? Really?

    What state are you in? Irrational hysteria?

    christ sakes, does any other self identified conservative wish to speak up and disavow this embarrassment, or do you all wish to let "conservative" speak for you?

    I'm tired of the lukewarm pseudo acceptance from conservatives, made all the more transparent when they can't tell one of their own to stop being so hateful.

    I grew up in San Francisco in the 60's and 70's.

    I find it ironic that the bigoted talk back then was that gay people were freaks that only wanted anonymous sex and had no ability to understand monogamy.
