    This question is ten years obsolete. It now needs to be addressed to people living in states with legal gay marriage, and should be "How has it effected you?"

    Interestingly....there seems to be no effect as of yet.

    our things that Americans seem to obsess over these days...homosexuality, 'race', income 'inequality' and terrorism.

    America would be a far better place (IMO) if Americans just stop caring about the first two (I.e. Equal rights for lesbians/gays and stop caring how much melanin is in others' skin) and stopped worrying so much about the last two.

    Bullseye. The self-feeding beast crushes all opposition. Arizona a small example of threats of boycotts by many major corporations and the NFL saying they will give then a Super Bowl if they don't get in line. Everyone that stands up for their religion now yields to sex drives of homosexuals backed by liberals and every minority cause in existence. Killing babies
    and legalizing pot and gay marriage should anyone dare oppose this they are branded by the media as fascists. Say one wrong word and you will be branded as a hater and rallies will be held to have you punished. Free thinking and opinions are dead.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    You do realize do you not, that you are complaining of the death of free thinking and opinion....because people have opinions and free thinking?


    Apparently because they are not thinking and opining the way you want them to, yet if they did the thinking would not be free.

    Do you or do you not believe in the free market and capitalism? Can people boycott things they don't like or can they not?

    I'm not sure you know what free thinking means.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    I answered your question...now you answer mine:

    How would accepting gays/lesbians and people of all 'races' as completely equal (rights wise) and have Americans spend less energy on pay inequality and terrorism...who would it not be better for?

    Don't get testy. I asked you because your position wasn't clear to me and I wanted to make certain I understood what you were saying, and apparently I did misunderstand you. Because we are in agreement.

    Except for pay inequality. I consider that a relevant issue.

    Fair enough.

    And I wasn't 'testy'...I simply asked you to answer my question since I answered yours.

    But I agree my first post was not altogether clear.
