Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Frankly I don't care what Glen Beck or anyone thinks about same-sex marriage. All I'm interested in is the law makers and courts acknowledging what equal protection means in the year 2010. I don't care what people think the "tradition" of marriage has always been. Gays have never had as many rights in society as they have gained in the past 50-60 years, so naturally that civil rights movement is going to go forward and demand total equality with heterosexuals.
As for abortion, same deal. The mob can say what it likes against abortion, but women have a constitutional right to privacy and personhood is not an objective qualifier for denying women the right to form answers to their own spiritual questions about what sex, pregnancy, and abortion means to them. So to suggest that populism is beginning to work against abortion is completely irrelevant, just like how the Prop 8 vote to strike down same-sex marriage was irrelevant.
The mob does not determine civil rights and they never will, so you can post all the polls you want about it. I don't care if the majority is in favor or against civil rights issues; all I care about is my individual right to live my life the way I want, and if it's not infringing on another person's right to do the same, then they can just **** off and mind their own damn business.
Oh, come on! The OP’s poll creates a penis like shape.
I don’t know, I mean you allow consenting adults to create unions and then they are going to want the right to free speech, and freedom of religion and the freedom to travel and then what will our oligarchy do?
'The whole universe is going to die!'
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
The GOP ignores this trend at their own peril.
Unless they move into the 21st century, they will end up being a marginal party. Right now, they have a majority of white voters and elderly voters. Whites will eventually be less than 50% in America and the elderly will eventually all die off.
(Not the Democrats are doing much better, admittedly, but social issues-wise, people are moving away from the GOP at a fast pace)

Time and time again, when things go horribly wrong with civilizations, there's always a scapegoat, and if you use it enough it can gain traction quite easily.
If this double dip ressecion that could very well happen, turns into a full blown depression we could see many peoples attitudes on things turn back when the GOP says god is punishing us for letting gays marry.
We didn't let them marry in the 50's and look! Everyone was happy then!
lolololol did anyone else notice a "strange shape"?
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
You gay marriage backers have a long way to go....
Same-sex marriage in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaSame-sex marriage ceremonySame-sex marriage, also referred to as gay marriage, is marriage between two persons of the same sex. The federal government of the United States does not recognize the marriages of same-sex couples and is prohibited from doing so by the Defense of Marriage Act. Nationwide, same-sex marriage is legal in three states as a result of a court ruling and in two others plus a district through a vote in their respective legislatures.
Same-sex marriages are currently granted by five of the 50 states, one federal district, and one Indian tribe:
Defense of Marriage Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaDefense of Marriage Act is the short title of a federal law of the United States passed on September 21, 1996 as Public Law No. 104-199, 110 Stat. 2419. Its provisions are codified at 1 U.S.C. § 7 and 28 U.S.C. § 1738C. Under the law, also known as DOMA, no state (or other political subdivision within the United States) needs to treat as a marriage a same-sex relationship considered a marriage in another state (DOMA, Section 2); the federal government defines marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman (DOMA, Section 3).
The bill was passed by Congress by a vote of 85–14 in the Senate and a vote of 342–67 in the House of Representatives, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on September 21, 1996.
This as it should be.... if the majority of the voters in a State votes to ban or allow gay marriage, the people of that State that don't like the outcome of the vote have the option to go to another State that more closely follows their values. If the Fed is allowed to "homogenize" the law, and either ban gay marriage for all States, or force gay marriage on all States, a certain percentage of the population will be disenfranchised, and the diversity of our country will be compromised.

There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.
