    I believe youll find the majority of pro gay equal rights think this way though.
    the vast majority all agree that a PERSON can think what they want but they want the laws to treat everyone equally on the issue.

    Do you disagree?

    If not religious-based, where is your opposition coming from?

    I am opposed to normalizing what is obviously abnormal for just one group that is different than the norm, merely for financial benefits. Ive said this more than once a single male or female loves their mother father sister brother just as much and cannot pass on their social security and cover their mothers or fathers with their health benefits. Neither should homosexuals.

    Seems to me that most opposed to SSM use their religious beliefs as their argument.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Homosexuality and SSM is against my religious beliefs, I don't believe that one is born gay or has no control over becoming gay, and I have not seen any scientific study to prove that wrong.

    I don't believe homosexuals are "eveil" or "disgusting" or any other derogatory name anyone would assign them. I believe they should be treated with the same dignity and respect as any other person.

    A few points, lpast.

    1) What precisely is wrong with "normalizing the abnormal?"
    2) The single male loving their parents is an apples to oranges comparison.
    3) SSM is NOT merely about getting financial benefits.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    so you view marriage as just financial and nothing else? Please explain the logic behind that.
    also you do know you did EXACTLY what CC sai you would do, you spoke in absolutes based on your opinions and not logic or facts. Just saying.

    Anyway please continue, its interesting the SS thing you brought up though IMO that has nothing to do with gay marriage it seems you problem is with how SS is handled.

    I'm with CC here, if this is primarily where your opposition against SSM is rooted, then I respect your opinion but completely disagree. There's no way to logically argue against opinion that is religion-based, but if that's your position then so be it. I believe that for those who don't derive their opposition to SSM from religion, they're on much shakier ground, logically speaking.

    That being said, mac, I'm not sure why homosexuality being a choice is relevant. Even if it WERE a choice, so what, and why should they be denied the right to marry because of that?

    Oh Ok I get, yes I agree with you many that have religious views making them against it DO use that for a reason to stop others which is incorrect in AMERICA.

    What do you feel about this scenario:

    A gay couple live together devotedly for 25 years. They buy a house and share a bank account. Then suddenly, one dies. The family of the deceased never agreed with her lifestyle and pretty much didn't keep in touch. However because the couple were never ever legally entitled, the surviving part of the couple loses half of what she had worked for all of her life to the people who didn't give a rat's behind about them.

    Think that is fair?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Honest question; how does the right gay people to marry, in a church that is willing to marry two gays affect you in any way? It's totally cool you aren't personally down with the idea, but is there a connection between how you feel and how what you feel is put onto others you don't agree with that? You know what I'm saying?

    I've never been able to make the connection between the legitimate idea of being personally opposed and how that translates to explicitly denying another's right to do what they personally feel is right and decent? How and why would that affect you in any way?

    Again, not picking a fight, it's an honest question.
