    This is why I support civil unions....compromise.

    I don't see any reason why people should compromise on their rights.

    Separate but equal is not equal. We've already done this one. So long as the Marriage License remains a government issued and recognized contract, you cannot rightfully ban same sex couples from engaging in it.

    100% consistency simply doesn't exist so your tactic of tearing down someone's argument by attempting to find an inconsistency is fruitless. If the government wasn't corrupt and dangerous I would support genetic screening so that people with genetic disorders couldn't have their own biological children, albeit the disorder would have to be severe and incurable. But certain diseases like Huntington's are so terrible that it shouldn't be passed on. There are many more. And the cures for these horrible diseases are years away. However, I can't support mandatory genetic screening because it breaches the personal liberties of the individual. So we're at an impasse. I can't support genetic screening for every citizen and then limiting people's ability to have children, but I can't support allowing incestuous marriage, either.

    So you can see (asked in all honesty) why gays would want the right to marry who they see fit?

    Absolutely....but that doesn't mean I agree that they have that right.

    I don't know what you're trying to communicate here, but the indirect implication is that there aren't any valid reasons, so thank you for clarifying.

    Nope, wrong again. I think what I said is pretty clear.
