    So I can more accurately judge their veracity. I suspect, based on what I know, that the numbers will prove to be wrong, but I can't prove that, or even know it for sure without seeing the source.

    Proving the OP poll is one of the least scientific and least credible is hijacking the thread?

    Would you like to show me an example where I've done that? For instance: I think christianity, among the rest of the religions, is a disgusting abomination with no other purpose than to control people. However, I don't do anything to prevent the religious from being religious. Everyone has a right to believe absolutely whatever they want. What people DO NOT have a right to is forcing that belief on others.

    Opposing SSM is opposing equal rights for other citizens you find "icky". The government should not be in the business of doling out who gets rights and who doesn't. I live my life by one simple philosophy: live and let live. If you think other adults marrying each other violates your rights in some way then you can go cry in a corner about it while the rest of the world evolves without you.

    Do you recognize there's a difference between live and let live and imposing your morality on others?

    No, the difference here is I don't care if you hold your belief that SSM is immoral and you are free to hold that belief. However, you are not free to force others to follow it. And sorry but when dealing with the public, there are rules you have to follow and if those go against your belief, there is always your church you can go to.

    Hitting it multiple times in a roll is rather excessive or should I say obsessive..

    That's your opinion it is excessive, but it isn't hijacking the thread since it is still refuting the OP.

    I wasn't being accusatory rather just posing a question.

    Bigot/bigotry/bigoted is far overused these days., IMHO

    I suspect you are right. However even if they are correct it is irrelevant.

    The reason people should care is because the evolution of society has developed to a point where somehow what you do may cost me tax dollars. So your right to destroy yourself and place a cost on my pocket should be inhibited. In theory you are correct, but in reality what people do now could have an effect on others. That doesn't applay to all things, for those that want to carry an idea there. My statement was purposely exaggerated to make a point to the person I was responding to, who spoke in unlimited terms.
