    I suggest a popular vote and Congress will follow suit. Sort of like executive order in reverse.

    That's the propaganda being put forward. I suspect it's bogus.

    Therefore I'm confidant America would vote against total legalization.

    Thank you for proving my point. You are the poster boy for authoritarianism. There was never any principle here. To you, individual freedom only exists for people to behave as you demand they behave.
    I've seen far more than 'kissing' in public. IMO, any overt physical act should be reserved for privacy, no matter the sexual orientation.

    Proving my point yet again. Freedom, to you, only means the freedom to do what WCH says is ok.

    It is absolutely comical that you people keep crowing about individual liberty when you are its worst enemy. The absolute antithesis of individual freedom is "I don't like that, therefore it will be illegal."
    When you achieve personal responsibility then you can gain personal freedom. Practicing and pushing deviant behavior is not responsible act. IMO

    No matter what anyone decides about Gay marriage, it won't stop the self-loathing, over-compensating, low self-esteem minds of those who will do anything, including dividing and destroying this country, to gain acceptance of their deviant abnormality.

    Only God can help that.

    No. Because popular votes change from one day to the next. There is no reason to run a country that way and that is not how our country was ever meant to be run, under popular vote for a law. It is in fact against the Constitution which specifies that laws come from the representatives, not direct votes.

    And your suspicions are absolutely meaningless. Reality is that the majority, especially of young people, are for allowing same sex couples to marry. Just because you live in a state of denial doesn't mean the rest of us do.

    Your God has no authority over me at all, not while I'm here on Earth. When I die, if it turns out you were right (which I highly doubt), then I will deal with the consequences of that. In reality though, you are trusting the words of men long dead, not God.

    Very few of our 'representative' share our views any longer so, it's time for a change.
