    You keep saying that DD and yet when the people vote on it by state have voted 31-0 against Gay Marriage........That has to be very disappointing for you...........Most people are for equal rrights but the answer is not gay marriage......

    Thank you, darling.

    So would you call 3 out of 5 a majority or plurality?

    Not everything.

    Should a married couple reproduce, their offspring should they be closely related stands significant increase in having deformities and such. As well is known from genetics.
    So, it's the nation's federal business and we don't approve nor will we allow or give a marriage license to closely related persons? Correct?

    That argument does not exist for same sex couples.
    Nor for same sex family, so two sisters using your theory shouldn't be denied, correct?

    As for polygamy, I have nothing inherently against it.
    Would you deny...as a member of a state in our union, a marriage license to two people who are already married to others, yes or no?

    People used to vote against emancipation, it doesn't mean that A) things aren't changing (as detailed by the closing gap) and B) that it will never change.

    Then why was it said that 94% VOTED???

    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.
    I guess I have to ask you my left wing friend why is anyone who disagrees with you on this issue is a homophobe.........I am for equal rights for all and against gay marriage and I am no homphobe.........

    Heh. I'm glad I'm not the only one who ever butted heads with Elena and ended up hitting my head repeatedly against my desk in total despair at her inability to grasp some very simple concepts. What a train wreck she's made of this thread. I just can't seem to look away. It's fascinating.
