    But if a gay judge cannot rule fairly on an issue involving gay marriage, there is no evidence a strait could either. Who do you think it is that oppose gay marriage...straits maybe?

    Doesn't matter. This won't destroy the Democrats, they'll still exist since all the rules are setup for the preservation of Republocrat rule. So maybe this all passes and some get chucked out. So what? It won't be long before people are pissed at the Republicans and vote back in Democrats. The entire thing merely teeter totters from one side to the other since we have no real competition in political parties. They may "feel consequences" now, but they'll be back in power later.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    The mouth foaming is exactly why prop 8 was defeated. There is no real reason to ban gay marriage in the year 2010. They've lost now and they'll eventually lose at the federal level for similar reasons. It's the same reason why DOMA was struck down not too long ago.
    Understandable.

    It's a sly debate tactic to make people look silly, foolish and ignorant my friend.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    party on!
    With your "look out" warnings and such, I would admittedly be shocked if you were in favor of gay marriage.

    This is about Civil Rights and Equality. It's not about who there is more of. Those who wish to enshrine discrimination will be looked upon with scorn in the eyes of history.

    I'd rather be voted against today but on the right side of the future. I'd rather tell younger generations that I was the person who fought for equality.

    Soon, those against gay marriage will be viewed exactly like those who hosed down Civil Rights marchers and threatened the Freedom Riders.

    Those aren't people I'd like to be associated with.
