    Sorry, but our daughters are going to face terrible assholes left and right, gay or straight. Sexuality is just one more thing in the bag of insults for those sort of folks. It's not the only thing.

    And dollars to donuts everyone featured in that photo is a left wing asshat.

    Lol, I love how idiotic that term is.

Usually that is said with an almost smile and the tears dont come until later.

    Ya know though...we could always put it to the test. A national vote...single issue, not tied to candidates or anything else. Decision made once and for all and good luck to both sides. Right? What percentage of blacks would vote for gay marriage? What percentage of hispanics? Oh...I hear the response already (because the dialogue has already been had here). "'Rights' shouldnt be subject to a vote or majority rule." Because you know better. Were it not for court intervention, there would still be 33+ states with laws either banning gay marriage or clarifying marriage as only between a man and a woman.

    But...but...the POLLS...right?

    So...they should put it to a vote. Right?


    Wrong.

    That's not the way that things work in the USA.

    This will all be sorted out by the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Wait and see.

    OK...I can see that.

    But the point wasnt really ABOUT Obama (and it seldom is). The point was about the fact that his position mirrored many if not a majority of conservatives on gay marriage and homosexuality, and for some reason...left leaning folks are real quick to toss out the whole bigot/homophobe thing....to conservatives.
    I don't recall Obama suggesting that not serving gays was ok, ever. I do recall him suggesting that gay marriage was not. And if I'm not mistaken he has changed course on that. But feel free to bash away and throw in lots of hyperbole along the way.

    No one should face harassment. But its more than just what they might face from others and you know it. I bvleiev you would accept her. I highly doubt thats what you had hoped for her.

    BTW...do you find it odd that Wilkinson felt the need to use an inflammatory picture that had absolutely ZERO bearing on his article to somehow attract attention to the content of his article?

    (and a staged photo at that. Wow...that really IS indicative of the typical gay rights outrage!)

    Regulations
    I make my arguments based on doing the right thing by all. I don't hide behind legal definition to justify infringing on a persons personal and religious beliefs, just as I didn't hide behind them when gay people wanted the right to marry.

    Being "free" in America, doesn't mean that everyone must accept everything that everyone engages in, or be forced to take part in anything they find objectionable... It means that people are free to engage in the things they want, and believe in the things they want (as long as they aren't endangering the physical safety or the lives of others) without being fear of government persecution for doing so. Forcing people of faith to participate in a ceremony that is sacrilegious to their beliefs is against everything this nation was founded upon.

    You just made my point.

    BTW, I have long ago said we will reach a point where the SCOTUS will decide in favor of gay marriage at some point and time. I think they have shown tremendous cowardice in refusing to take it on before now. And when it does...the sun will still come out tomorrow.
