    You made the argument that the opinion of billions was relevant. It isn't. It has nothing to do with rights. They're not decided by way of opinion.

    Not allowing consenting adults to form a contract IS oppression.
    I have no problem with a civil union but, that doesn't seem to be good enough for Gays.

    It doesn't really matter what the Founder would've thought. After all, many of them were slaveowners and womanizers.

    A true defender of liberty would not put individual freedoms up for a vote.

    The very fact that you have to differentiate between a civil union and marriage shows that they are not the same thing.

    There was a time when most gay people would have been happy with civil unions....however those who are now the most vocal in the anti-marriage equality crowd opposed civil unions tooth and nail. All of a sudden...because gay marriage is becoming a reality, they are ok with civil unions and are crying "why aren't civil unions good enough for you guys". Sorry....but that ship has sailed. You can take your civil unions and shove them straight up your $%*

    That's exactly what we don't want. There's a reason this country was created as a republic instead of a democracy. A democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner. Democracy allows the rights of the minority to be trampled by the majority.

    Individual liberty should never be put to a popular vote. You don't have the right to infringe on the freedoms of others just because you have a majority behind you.

    Did not the Founders write most of this freedom and liberty stuff you are spouting?
