    When many, many people on here express confusion as to your logic, there should be a point where you should question how well you are articulating your point. A reasonable person would do this.

    Yes they did. If you vote for President, and 6% vote for candidate C for President, it doesn't mean they didn't participate in the vote for President. They most certainly did cast votes for the President position. Were you home schooled?

    Would you call 3 out of 5 a majority or plurality?

    I've identified the flaw in your reasoning here, Aps.

    Reading the first 10 pages of this thread, I realized Elena is a devout homophobe who clings to the ignorant and backward belief that sexual orientation is a choice.

    See, Elena, you didn't choose to be heterosexual, if that's what you are (I say that because many homophobes are really self-hating homosexuals). No, Dear, you were born with the hard-wired personality traits of a heterosexual. (again, if that's what you are)

    And no, it's not a gene, a single gene--brain development is a combination of genetics, prenatal nutrition, and other prenatal factors. It's complicated and difficult to study. But the majority of respected people in related fields, now believe that sexual orientation is a hard-wired trait that comes in degrees.

    The law needs to catch up with the science. This is a civil rights issue. You wouldn't prevent left-handed people from getting married? Same thing.

    My overall point is that a homophobe who will never understand how ignorant and wrong her beliefs are (Elena) has kept this thread going while well-meaning people try to talk some sense into her.

    My advice -- stop humoring her.

    3 out of 5 is both.

    If there were 4 choices at 2/5, 1/5, 1/5, and 1/5; the winner (2/5) is plurality, but not majority.

    wrong. Same sex couples, singles, or married couples can still create a contract to receive. All the contractual benefits of a marriage contract.

    However, you cannot sign a contract to force tax benefits from the government that married couples receive. This is because the government discriminates for such benefits just like it does for medicare and social security. Such discrimination is both rational and constitutional.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    At this point, it's well past humoring and far gone into overt mockery.
