    What you think is normal is not what matters. What does matter is that the people who always claim they want government to leave them alone and not tell them what to do want to gell Gays what they can and cannot do.

    What else do you want government to tell you to do?

    EXACTLY. Those who pretend to scream the loudest about wanting small government are the ones that argue for Huge government involvement in the social arena.

    I think you might be confusing freedom of choice with what you seem to be calling "huge government." If you choose not to marry someone of your sex that is OK with me. If you choose to prevent someone from the right to marry that is not the same thing. Why anyone cares so much what two consenting adults want to marry to the point that you prevent it seems bizarre to me.

    What are you afraid will happen if two people get married? It's not like heterosexual marriage is the model for eternal harmony? If half the marriages in America end in divorce now how is that a positive reflection on the "sanctity" of marriage?

    I'm not confusing anything, and I didn't say anything about "huge government". I oppose it because it is wrong.

    I'm not afraid of anything. I simple oppose the idea that homosexuals are equally eligible to get married.

    Why? How does it affect your life? Why would you want to deny anyone the same rights that you enjoy simply based on sexual preference? Who cares what someone does in their personal life?

    What will happen to you when Gay marriage becomes legal (it's inevitable)?

    Do you also oppose inter-racial marriage? Should that be illegal too? I'm not suggesting that you do but the same logic one uses to believe that any man and woman should be allowed to get married regardless of their race should apply to sexual preference, it's the same thing.

    Well, you think it is wrong and therefore deny others the same rights you enjoy.

    This "eligibility" you speak of is not for you to decide.

    I just decided you're not equally eligible to go within 1 mile of where I live, on account of me feeling like it. That's fair, right?

    OK not bothering to read 71 pages of replies, I have to say....

    That is a piss poor article to as any kind of stand on the matter. Why didn't it pass? Was it because of a fundamental issues with SSM? Did some politician finally grow some balls and say, "I'm not allowing a bill that has some financial rider that has nothing to to with the main bill to come up for a vote"? Did some clerk dot a t and cross an i and the red tape police kicked it back?

    If you are going to post an article, then post one with some real information in it not a blurb that's shorter than a TV newscast sound bite!
