    And unlike this bigoted horse****, the basis of their opinion is the fact that you're deliberately working to make their lives worse.

    Look up the definition of "fallacy of composition" and note that it describes what you just did.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Why would I consider it a negative force when it's not? The rest is just your opinion and you are just upset you can't force it on others.

    My goal is to have folks sin no more. Basically to save them from their selves.

    I don't intend to force anything nor can I. I only want them to have eternal life.

    So, why does it lose at the polling place if all these polls are showing that Americans support changing the definition of marriage?

    Sin is subjective, so the chances of you achieving such a selfish goal (since the assumption is being made that it is what you believe is sin is what you believe folks should not do any more) are very small.

    Again it is written that homosexuality and thus SSM is a sin. That's all I need to know.
    I have no idea why it would be selfish other than I might get some good out of seeing someone step away from that lifestyle.

    There hasn't been a vote taken on same sex marriage in years. I believe it was 2012. NC voted in their ban, yet two years before that, 3 states voted to legalize same sex marriage and a fourth state voted to not place a ban in effect, paving the way for same sex marriage to become legal in that state.

    It comes down to the fact though that voters do not represent all of America. They don't get to solely decide who gets rights or equal protection and who doesn't.

    It is written in a book. You happen to believe that book is really inspired by God. Many others don't believe that at all. Your opinion is not fact, nor can you prove that what is "written" is really what God wants, rather than simply some guys who lived a long time ago and other guys who want to believe what those guys wrote.
