what is going to be interesting to see is how many of these pro-gay supports become pro-polygamist supporters when polygamists start pushing for the same rights.
since marriage now has no definition. they can very easily win the same lawsuits with the same arguments.
we will see who is intolerant then.
2.) thats not "my" contention thats just a fact the majority support it
3.) Actually it has won 3 times but again that doesnt matter, but that just shows what you know about this topic
90+% of the country was against interracial marriage but that didnt mean it didn't violate rights to stop it, same with womans rights etc etc
Actually the last four times the issued appeared on the General Election ballot (November 2012) the pro-Marriage Equality side won. (IIRC - Washington, Maryland, Maine, and Minnesota).
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
But I do think that it's in society's best interests to have some contract that does cover all that marriage does for the protection of children, assets, inheritance, and many of the other things included in the marriage contract. With that said, it does not necessarily follow that the govt (state or fed) must offer benefits and tax options based on that contract.
People in the US are free to live together in any combinations they choose. If they want the legal benefits and privileges that come with marriage then they can (and should be allowed to) marry.
However I wouldnt care if people 'married' without a marriage license. That is a personal thing for every single couple. Perhaps all should just have to get the legal recognition thru the govt if that is what they desire? I dont care what you call it. Half of the objections to gay marriage is the use of the word 'marriage.' Stupid IMO.
