    Well I could say the same about my experiences with Conservatives, but I think it's best that we chose not to.

    No. The union is the same period, unless you are simply referring to a sexual component.

    Yes siree bob, that's some standard. Marry who you love. (not raising an imaginary glass on that).

    Oh no, not me. But lot's of sicko's out there in you corner. But what's sliding the scale just a wee bit more? No harm, no foul when basing a marriage on sex, right? Yep, marry who you love, everything is fine.

    Oh no I get it. I just hope you don't. You say you love your daughter. I just hope you don't love her enough to want to marry her or her "friend". Lots of people that want the scale to slide on the marriage issue want it to slide just a little more than others. And they are going to start to make the very same arguments we all heard the first time around. Basing marriage on sex is a very slippery slope.

    What does that even mean? Basing marriage on sex Are you suggesting that people are gay for purely sexual reasons? That it is the deviant sex that draws them to it? That's ignorant. People are gay because they fall in love with people of the same gender, not because they have super hot sex.

    Ergo, you have no basis to tell them they can't do it.
    I never said they couldn't get married. But there is no reason for either the state or myself need recognize the "marriage".
