**** that. It will be a cold day in hell before I ever make apology for the underlying hatred and bigotry inherent in the argument against freedom and liberty when it comes to gays. I will be goddamned if I ever accept that I am a second class citizen and that my relationship is of any less value than yours or Jerry's or anyone else's.
Although California may be a few hundred light years ahead of Mississippi in their history of civil rights and freedoms, Mississippi is only looking at a $480M budget deficit for 2010, while California is looking at a $33.9B shortfall. The Magnolia State may have been behind the curve in civil rights, but they're far and away ahead of The Golden State in terms of governmental fiscal responsibility!
Anyway... the point I was trying to make previously - which apparently went past you like a Randy Johnson 4-seam fastball - is that if a special-interest group keeps bringing a previously defeated issue to the ballot time and time again, they run the very real risk of not having it passed, and encountering voter backlash at having to re-vote down an issue that was previously voted down, resulting in a greater margin of defeat.
If you choose to accept that as political fact, or write it off as merely endemic to us redneck, trailer park livin', incestuous, white trash, rednecks is wholly up to you. Just try not to act too surprised should Prop #8 fail again in 2010.

Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
But again, from a legal standpoint there is no inequality. The standard is applied evenly across the board. All of the arguments you make could be used by a 42 year old man who wants to marry a 15 year old bride.
Take sex out of it for a moment: I don't condone adultery among hetero couples even when it's consensual, yet you and Josh are adulterers to each other. You don't live in the same place, so it can't be said that you're living an equivalent life.
Hell Inferno is a far, far better poster child for gay-marriage than you are, so let her represent next time.
