    I posted Pew and a few others, NP. Find me ONE polls that shows that Americans do NOT support SSM that has scientific validity. ONE.

    Wrong NP. The majority SUPPORT SSM. This has been shown in every poll, consistently. There is no silent majority on this issue.

    Does it occur in nature? This is not a popular definition, I'm aware, but one must be consistent. We do not design laws based on what is or isn't natural.

    Maybe its because the DEA holds a lot of sway on our politicians and policies?

    Another very interesting poll.


    That over 65 crowd who opposes SSM really bugs me..these were the flower children of the 6Os, the peaceniks, the free love crowd, protestors and now they have been "saved" or something and become straight and narrow. They no longer see clearly or remember who they used to be.

Of course, racists would oppose it but not because it's not marriage, but, ironically, because it IS the very nature and purpose of marriage that they would find so loathsome between people of mixed race. While there's no doubt that homosexual relationships are real relationships, they simply can't truly be marital relationships by any reasonable expectation of the purpose and design of marriage. While I do find this to be a conundrum because I think homosexuals should have access to the same protections that marriage affords, I'm just not convinced that just extending the definition of marriage to accommodate that makes sense. It's the simplest solution but it creates an oxymoron because two people of the same sex can't be a natural marriage. That's my opinion and I know it's not one shared by everyone and that's cool with me. I don't think it's necessary for everyone to share my opinion on anything.


    What a relief as very few share your opinions on anything. Nature didn't intend anything one way or the other as everything in nature is natural. Opposition to SSM is mostly based on religious bias and is totally irrelevant to the issue.. Love is Love and it matters not the gender of those involved in a relationship. Love usually leads to marriage. Very simple.

    I hate to break your heart, but animals have been known to prefer the same sex as well. Still natural as is all of nature.

    Plus the fact that you have to sign up to receive their biased spam before you can vote. Sure, that'll get a lot of people who disagree with the religious hate-mongers to vote!
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
