Guess what, I just showed you that you were wrong on both counts.
And fyi, I remember the 80's just fine. I remember quite clearly that SSM was being talked about.

Mark my words... The next conservative move on this topic is the ol.... Take my ball and go home.... Move. They'll try to abolish marriage as a whole in their states as retaliation. And this will backfire on them immensely as wedding plans already laid out have the potential of getting obliterated by this conservative temper tantrum.
I also wouldn't be surprised to hear talk of secession again in small corners over this.
Frankly if in a court of law the opponents of polygamy can't do better than those opposed to SSM, then it should be legal. I'm agnostic - never thought about the subject and don't care to investigate the pros and cons - so I'm not supporting it, but knowing what I know now (not much) I'd say to those folks, "your life, your choice." I don't really feel it's my business to interfere with someone else's family arrangement unless I can articulate a VERY strong argument why, because I don't care what you (in a broad sense) think about mine.
Equal rights is something promised by our constitution. For too long those of a religious mindset have demanded that rights should only be granted as they see fit. I don't expect to change the minds of anyone who is against gay marriage, especially since most of them base it on superstition not empathy. I do, however feel the need to say congratz to those vindicated today with their victory towards equality.
I feel no pity for those who oppress others in the name of their religion for their lose of right to discriminate.
Ignorance is the refuge of faith
It's become very apparent that there is nothing respectable about faith

Let's be honest. It boils down to a lot of fat white conservative guys who aren't getting laid. That's what it boils down to and we all know it. Fat white conservative men can't get the women they want so they band together under the guise of religion to seek revenge against anyone who can or who has another world view.
