    This is all nice and reflects what I have said; unfortunately, their agenda does not include a solution, but merely forcing their views down everyone's throat for political purposes.

    If you don't believe me, just look at all the protests and promises of law breaking already occurring in California. If they wanted to resolve this in a respectful mature way, we would already have resolved it instead of having politicians and mayors like Gavin Newsome tell the voters to shove their values up their a-holes.

    There is nothing hateful or indiscriminate about merely questioning the reasons same sex couples so desperately want to redefine a term that has been with us for over 2000 years and FALSLEY claim it as a RIGHT.
    Something like Prop 8 goes beyond just questioning it.

    The purpose of marriage between a man and a woman is to provide a contract that binds them in a solemn promise before God for life to procreate and create and raise children as a FAMILY. Gays cannot procreate, it is a LIFE style. Only a MAN and a WOMAN can.
    What about heterosexual couples that are incapable of procreating or choose not to? Should they also be denied marriage?

    It is a rare instance; do you think we should make laws for every possible biological situation? They can still procreate with new techniques using the sperm or eggs from the female.

    How does this change the basic tenet of Marriage?

    The purpose of marriage between a man and a woman is to provide a contract that binds them in a solemn promise before God for life to procreate and create and raise children as a FAMILY. Gays cannot procreate, it is a LIFE style. Only a MAN and a WOMAN can.

    Why don't you explain why Gay activists cannot be content with Civil Unions?

    God? So only Christian marriages are valid now?

    I dunno. Why weren't black people happy with separate schools. I mean, they were getting an education, so WTF was the problem?

    You think the idea of God is purely a Christian idea? Obviously your notions about religion are quite limited.

    Your desperate attempt to equate marriage between a man and a woman with racism is noted; and it is still absurd.

    I understand how you feel. Believe me it is a tiresome thing trying to explain to a dyed in the wool lib that I neither hate them nor gays, that all I hope for is that both sides will simply stop with the diatribes and push for some common ground. I like you don't believe that "marriage" should be the word, because it offends people on the right. But not coming to a solution and giving equal rights to all is not what this country is about. In my original quote and now, I am on your side.
