    You're probably thinking of some political initiatives you supported a while back as a member of the democrat party.

    It's a bit unfair to lay blame for those laws on Democrats. More accurately, it wasn't a party-line issue, it was a geographic issue. Southern Democrats and Southern Republicans were both vehemently against integrating the school system.

    But we're getting way off track.

    No conservative have ever satisfactorily answered two basic questions for me:

    1) How does legalizing same-sex marriage affect you?

    2) Why do you oppose legal rights being granted to same-sex couples? (hospital visitation, medical power of attorney, automatic inheritance, automatic custody of children in death of spouse, joint tax filing, protection from testifying against a spouse, transfer-of-property tax protection, social security benefits collected on death of spouse, immigration rights for spouse, I could go on for another couple pages...)

    edit: And to ward off the "but it's being force upon us!" No, it isn't. Your church doesn't have to perform the ceremony, you don't have to attend the ceremony, and aren't going to be forced at gunpoint to marry a dude!

    That is of course wrong as anyone can see in looking through the voting record - but yes, way off track and irrelevant to forum members reminiscing about their early days in the Democrat party.

    They just insist on doing it in your face and forcing you to recognize it as MARRIAGE. It's like a gay parade; you always have those few that have to come out on their hands and knees with dog collars and leashes, or dressed up like Liza Minelli. They just want to get in your face about it.
    Kinda like those damned straights, always wanting to push straight marriage in everyone's face. Forcing you to reognize it as MARRIAGE.
    They just want to get in your face about it.

    Apparently it isn't the same thing. If it was, you wouldn't be complaining about them calling it a marriage.

    They just insist on doing it in your face and forcing you to recognize it as MARRIAGE.
    They aren't doing anything in your face. If you don't want to see them get married... Don't go to their ceremonies. How are they forcing you to recognize it as marriage? Did they hold you hostage or something? If so why don't you please share your story... It sounds interesting!

    It's like a gay parade; you always have those few that have to come out on their hands and knees with dog collars and leashes, or dressed up like Liza Minelli. They just want to get in your face about it.
    Don't go to gay parades then, and stop watching American Idol.

    Damn those inter-racial couples. They INSIST on doing it in your face and forcing you to recognize it as MARRIAGE..... They just want to get in your fae about it.

    Why do blacks insist on drinking out of OUR drinking fountains and riding in OUR seats on the bus.

    Don't these people understand their place in OUR society?

    The fact that conservatives have gotten themselves into the middle of people's private business is...anti-conservative.
    Well, I have always maintained that the term "social conservative" is an oxymoron.

    Same here. I always listen to the Republicans say they are going to get the government off our backs so we can live our lives... They seem like nothing but a bunch of hypocrite con-artists in my opinion.
