    I don't think scared is the right word but there are many reasons to be against gay marriage that have been hashed out in this forum and most of them have nothing to do with religion........

    It might make you wonder why.

    to be fair, fear and loathing.

    what other defensible reasons could there be?

    It may for awhile. Like I said though, people will eventually see sense. America has a long history of (eventually) standing up to human rights violations and stopping them. It just takes time.

    Funny that you think those two are defensible, not that I'm saying they aren't.

    i've seen them hashed out, and i have to say i don't agree with most of them. in fact, none of them.

    there's an inherent desire to see oneself as superior, and the only way some people can accomplish that is to make someone else inferior.

    I'll say they aren't, but I still found it funny.

    And you think that those that oppose same-sex marriage are small-minded.
