    This is one issue that is not ethnic minority vs majority. It's those that believe we should live under a theocracy and those that don't.
    I do think that characterising millenia's of tradition on marriage as "theocracy" is a bit hysterical no matter what you think of gay marriage.

    Gay MEANS 'happy'

    For example, show me here a parent of a gay individual saying: "I'm proud that my son is gay".

    You can hear that parents, family members and friends say "I understand him" but they never ever say that "they are proud" that the dude is gay. The only one who feels such kind of "pride" is the gay individual himself and his group of gays.
    Wat?

    Now well, being gay is against the species,
    Being sterile is against the species too then? Or simply being someone who simply doesn't want to have kids?

    Truth is, we need MORE gay people and MORE sterile people right now because our population is growing beyond Earth's threshhold or will be very soon at this rate. If it weren't for them who knows how many more millions of people would exist right now and much more subsequent poverty would have been created...

    and we must protect our species,
    Dude look at China and tell me our species needs to be protected?

    For example you call gay to a straight man and he will feel offended, and the reason is because gays is mostly related to low moral and a wrong orientation.
    No he will feel insulted because he is either insecure with his own sexuallity or doesn't understand the word 'gay' in a sexual context at all. but neither of those has anything to do with actual gay people.

    Take note that straight people is "forced" to tolerate gays by law, but such don't apply as a voluntary step. You already have witnessed that gay marriage didn't pass in any state where it was in the ballot. You can witness that society says "no" to such marriage. Are you going to call "bigots" to the majorities because the majorities don't accept such kind of marriage?Come on...
    YES! I will, ignorant, homophobic intolerant masses, absolutely.

    You know a time existed when the vast majority didn't believe blacks were even humans or deserving of rights and you know what? They were intolerant bigots none-the-less.

    History will view anti-gay, conservative homophobes in the same light it holds people who were against any human right issue, like woman being able to vote, blacks being free, AS IGNORANT BIGOTS.

    Do you know of a branch that allows women to do all the same jobs as men? If so, do you not think that being limited to a branch is a limitation of choice?
    Yeah its called the U.S. Navy..........

    Yeah but like rivrrat said, that still limits the choice of women to one branch when it should be all of them.

    I don't understand why you're being this way. It's really obvious what she means. I think she's getting treated pretty badly around here because of the extreme nature of some of her views and it really doesn't seem fair to me.

    -- 81 percent of white evangelicals voted yes.

    -- 65 percent of white Protestants voted yes.

    -- 64 percent of Catholics voted yes. Catholics accounted for 30 percent of all voters.

    Catholic support increased from 44 percent to 64 percent - a jump that accounted for 6 percent of the total California electorate and equivalent to the state's entire African American population combined. The shift in Catholics alone more than accounted for Prop. 8's 5 percent margin of victory.
    --------------------------------

    Thus we Christians made this all possible thankyou and will take the credit. It was all a matter of churches actually bringing the matter up to parishioners and reminding them what the Bible teaches.
    and 70% of blacks voted yes....why aren't the gay crowds picketing the churches in the black communities???.

    Allow me to teach you the golden rule of the bible then

    "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets." - Mathew 7:12

    or more simply

    "Do to others as you would have them do to you."
    - Luke 6:31
