    of course it doesn't.

    and further more, to think that having the same sexual experience will help anyone to understand what it means to be gay is beyond ridiculous.

    It shows why the poster concerned has absolutely NO CLUE about what it means to be gay, and why gay people might want to marry.

    I think he must be one of these people who think behind closed doors all gay people do is have sex, and that is ALL they do.
    Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.

    A chick once put her finger in my butt. I didn't like it and I don't think it gave me any insight or inclination to gayness. I think people would get upset if I was all "Oooh, I know what it's like to be gay!" because of that incident.

    Exactly how is anyone here doing that?Has anyone gone to one of the moderators or the site owners and demanded that the Anti-SSM posters not be allowed to post their views here?

    So what?They aren't the only ones.Plenty of us parents of gay children are calling for the definition to be changed.
    I know plenty of my fellow caterers and banquet hall owners are calling for a definition change also.Allowing gays to marry would generate millions of dollars the way civil unions just don't.No one pays me thousands and tens of thousands of dollars to cater a civil union.

    By "moral objections,aren't you really saying "religious objections", and by "religious objections" don't you mean "Christian objections"? I'm sure there are buddhists,Jews,Muslems,etc that are are members of this forum,yet we really haven't heard anything from them,have we?
    Even still,we live in a republic,not a theocracy.

    It may suck for you,but people in America are required to respect someones [b]right[b] to have opposing views.They are not required to respect the views themselves.It may be rude of someone here to say "screw your beliefs",but no one here is trying to prevent you from having them.That would be "fascist" (notice the quotation marks) of someone to deny someone a right to their beliefs,or even the abilty to use a certain word....oh wait,isn't that what the Anti-SSM crowd is trying to do?

    Funny,but I thought opinions are something a person has and tells others.
    Not the other way around?
    Do you make it a habit of telling people what their opinions are?
    It's a very nasty habit.

    Care to explain how the government or anyone else is intruding on you freedom of religious expression?
    Are black helicopters hovering over your house?
    Are "the Men In Black" harrassing you at church?
    Are the government mind control lasers interfering with your prayer?

    Christians don't own morality, the government isn't stopping anyone from expressing their religion.,it isn't forcing the religious to become gay.
    By that same token,we don't live in a theocracy either.
    Being gay isn't illegal
    A person doesn't automatically get make the rules for everyone else JUST because that person follows a religion.

    Good evening, Humbolt!

    i missed you today...working outdoors?

    I dislike those curly-que bulbs! The amount of light they emit is too little to read by, plus the light makes people look like vampires...except I think we got 'em all in the last roundup...

    Rounded up the lights or the vampires?

    Evening to you, mam. I am getting a garden ready. I have another much larger I haven't even started yet. New ground. Screw those light bulbs. I bought all the incandescents I could a while back, and I'm ditching the others. I'm putting LED's everywhere else I reasonably can. The older I get, the more fussy I am about light, among other things.

    Heh. That is more information than I require.

    If the data isn't there, then how can you justify concluding that there is a problem?

    Believing that homosexual sex is a sin is not racist

    Gay marriage is not a Civil Right
