    That doesn't explain an 0-31 record. BTW, great Daily Kos graphic my fellow conservative. LOL

    If you look at this statistic it shows the majority consider themselves to be pro-life (even though it's minute)
    Abortion


    Although this thread isn't about abortion, and I don't want to derail it. The point I am making is that the trend is increasing towards being pro-life (with them now being a small majority) while the trend is becoming for favorable towards SSM. The reality though, is that many states have passed marriage definitions that exclude homosexuality, and to my knowledge no state has done the opposite via a popular election.

    I'm not opposed to them having a civil union of some sort. Just don't label it marriage.

    My wife also uses the internet, and she is a Daily Kos fan. She pointed that out to me. She is a Liberal, BTW. But nice try on the personal attack. It only reinforces your own dishonest image here at DP, in preferring to make personal attacks instead of discussing issues.

    BTW, do you disagree with the graph? If so, why? I think that is the issue, not which way you wish to tell people I lean. Care to explain what you think of the graph, or would you prefer to make another personal attack instead? Or are you just going to run away and hide again, like you did the last time I called you out on your dishonesty in a thread?

    If you don't call it marriage, it isn't marriage. Separate ain't equal.

    If it gets all the same benefits from a legal perspective and you live with each other and are happy then how is that any different then marriage?

    Calling it something different doesn't mean it isn't equal. By that logic I could say that an Asian and a Hispanic are not equal since they are called different things but are still people.

    Re: Majority of Americans now support gay marriage according to CNN poll.

    Digsbee quite being dishonest that thing doesn't saying anything about the majority being pro life it does however say the opposite that 47% are pro choice while only 45% are pro life. How does 45% equal the majority of the population when obviously the higher number are the people that are pro choice?

    I also say this will be a growing trend, since the older generations are dieing out while the younger people who hang out with gays, and Lesbians know they are great people who shouldn't be demonized. They are the closest friend a person could have, since I know a couple of Homosexuals that are friends of my sister they're great people who deserve to be able to get married . Screw anyone who wants to take that away from people because god told you too do so.

    I think you best go back and look at that again..... what I saw was 46% pro-life and 45.5% pro-choice...... I'm guessing the missing 1.5% didn't have an opinion.

    BTW……. That makes pro-life a majority.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    That makes it a plurality. A majority is > 50%.

    If it isn't called marriage, then legally it is not marriage and thus does not receive the same legal benefits of marriage. It receives only those benefits which are specifically enumerated to the specific name given it. There are thousands of laws governing marriage in this country that would have to be specifically and individually reiterated in order for "civil unions" or some other such nonsense to be legally similar to marriage, and then any law passed in the future which concerned marriage would have to specify that it also applies to "civil union" in order to maintain that parity.

    "Civil union" is a lesser, debased form of marriage. I do not think that any such diminishment of marriage should be tolerated.

    You can say that, and I would agree with you. As long as they are recognized as different things under the law, they are not equal. The only means by which to achieve the desired equality of the races is through the abolition of the races.
