    Do you think it was sad when the court overturned segregation?

    The CA ballot initiative system has been screwed up for years. The will of the people are the Governor and State Reps.

    Its not the same....Blacks are a race.....Gays are a class of people defined by their sexual preference.........

    I am glad to see California do the right thing for once.............

    Why would polygamy bother you?

    It certainly does take people time to realize that they may be, yes. But you know, if the definition of bigotry is denying rights to another, then this certainly fits.

    I mean, I know you and others may justify it by saying you don't want change, but the end result is the same. I know you obviously don't see it as bigotry, but it certainly has the same effect. A victim of your views is discriminated against no matter what.

    It all depends on whether you think marriage is a right and whether gays are "people". If you agree that they are "people" then they should be given 14th amendment rights against discrimination just like all other people.

    It's really not that hard of an argument to make; it's kind of obvious, actually. It's those who don't want it who seem to be looking for loopholes.

    Marriage is not a right.....Its a privilege.........Why do you think you have to get a license?
