When Juan, takes half of Steve's stuff including money then the tune will change. But I am not opposed to say civil unions. I have known this committed gay couple that I have known for years, and they are as happy as the rest of us. In fact adopted and raised a smart, beautiful, and very straight young lady, that had special needs. They were a god send to that young lady, and I think they did a hell of a job!

    So what do I care if gays get married under civil union? I don't.

    Can you blame her? Hell, it makes me more than a little tetchy myself.
    So, is it your contention, then, that banning gay marriage will decrease heterosexual anal intercourse, thus leading people like Elena to greater happiness?

    I don't believe that gays being allowed to marry will impact me, at all. That's why I have a libertarian stance on the matter. The only people who DO seem to care about it a great deal seem to spend a significant amount of their time fixated on anuses. I find that rather creepy.

    If the law for civil unions ain't the same as it is for marriages, then it's not good enough. If the law is the same, then what's the difference between a civil union between homosexuals and a marriage license between heterosexuals? Is it the word? Are people seriously making this much fuss over what the damn thing is called?

    Law ain't going to force anyone's church to perform ceremonies for anyone they don't want to. And the law ain't stopping any churches from performing all manner of non-legally binding marriage ceremonies for whoever they want to.

    So, in your opinion its the people who exist to service a state: government institutions and officials (government, courts, police, army) who should empose their will on the said public by means of laws that do not represent the interests of the majority of the society? Is that so? Is that what America is about? Where is democracy coming into play?

    you know, Good question. It probably is the wording. On both sides of the debate.

    I am quite capable of expressing my thoughts without employing a personal mouthpiece, thank you.
    You are free to ignore me, just as I am free to comment on what I deduce from your posts. Thankyouverymuch.

    I belive I already answered that. If they do not represent the majority of the society of your country, the society has the right to decide what to do about them. What is your point?

    Gay marriage is already illegal and has been for hundreds of years. Elena's still miserable about all of that wanton anal sex. Don't reckon there's much can be done for her about it.

    Hell, only thing I want out of the deal is being able to listen to rock music on the radio without hearing about some form of sodomy at least twice an hour. Really don't think that's too much to ask, and I'm not even asking for the law to enforce it. Can we just stop singing about it for a little while, like a decade or so?

    31 states have so far rejected Gay Marriage.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
