    People just dont change their religious beliefs over night. And yes, this is a religious matter.

We can not allow that to happen if we want to preserve the individual liberty upon which this nation was founded.

    Look at what is happening in NYC. They started caving on little issues here and there, giving Bloomberg more and more power but now he's managed to get the State to adopt his ideas on gun control and outlawed the delivery of 2 liter bottle of soda with a pizza.

    Liberty means that some people will choose to do things that we dislike and that we disagree with but we have to retain the rights to deal with those things directly. Dealing with them through delegation isn't dealing with them at all.
    I never said the Federal Government should get involved in Gay Marriage. I believe the exact opposite actually. Let the states decide by a vote if they want state recognition of Gay Marriage. The people decide. That's not how the Left operates however. Even in CA gay marriage was voted down and it only took one militant gay radical in black robes to overturn the will of the people.

    There needs to be an opposition movement to the very idea and concept of gay marriage politically. I will never support gay marriage. I don't feel it's imperative to the propagation of the species. I also don't believe the concept of marriage and it's definition should be changed to suit a small group of people with specific sexual appetites.

    Sorry, it's nitpicking, but this sounds like there's a Conservative island somewhere, and people on a specific side of it have a certain opinion.

    The species seems to be propagating itself rather well anyway. A post-menopausal woman who gets re-married is also not "propagating the species." Should we not allow that either?

    If you let the states decide, how can a gay couple that is married in CA, move to a state that does NOT recognize their marriage?
    and the propagation of the species is a very weak argument.

    Well now this is interesting. It seems that some of the people who are so fast to jump on the "unity" and "folks who agree with you 75% of the time are allies not enemies" bandwagons when it is conservatives rejecting moderates are the same ones standing up and applauding when the process goes in reverse.
