    Just a warning for people to ignore this derail. If the other thread is any evidence, he'll drag this on forever.

    It appears that the general pulled the 95% figure out of his ass.

    But what they don't have are the rights to marry the person they love and serve their nation if they choose to.
    The law states who can marry. So then people should have the right to marry as many people as they want

    Did you take your own poll or something?

    You post appears to follow the example. I see the general as a man who care deeply for his soldiers and has done a tremendous amount to help them.

    Re: 95% of Marines uncomfortable serving with openly gay troops

    95% of Fox News viewers in the Marines are uncomfortable with gays in the military? Who knew?

    A New York Times national poll in February 2010 shows 58% of Americans favor gays serving openly, compared to 29% opposed.

    I could ask 500,000 satanists if they oppose christianity and I'm sure I could get atleast 95%

    The state has a legitimate interest in limiting the number of licenses a person can have at a single time. Just as the state can limit the number of driver's licenses or hunting license or fishing licenses, etc. that you can have, the state is allowed to set the number of marriage licenses you can posses to just one. That keeps it fair for everyone and avoids serious complications that arise when people are allowed to have multiple marriage licenses.

    Therefore, you comparison is irrelevant.

    No. But neither did that general.

    Some do. Let's not pretend that is no such thing as a prejudice gay person.
