    I talked to a few friends and my fiance about this subject actually, to see where I am wrong, and everyone one of them but one seems to agree with you guys including my fiance. So I will go with yes they are oppressed, but I will say there are differences in African oppression and American oppression and those differences are vast.

    Leave it up to the individual states to decide.
    It has also been typically used as a form of business contract as well. And it used to be between kids younger then 18. And between one man many women. Its changed several times in history.

    I dont like the idea of states deciding who should have what civil rights.

    I suppose in order to be civil I must accept your view.

    One can be civil, and have a different view on SSM.
    If you look at it from the perspective of a gay man or a lesbian then its hard to see any argument against being against SSM as civil. After all you are trying to deny them the right to marry the person they love.

    I agree. Sure, I guess you can say I don't mean anythign personal by screwing with your life and denying you want I have. But it would be hard to see that as any other political disagreement. But I think that is what makes this so difficult. If you deny them the right to marry, you are denying a fundamental and personal right. No matter how much I look at it and consider the conservative argument, I can't see how it can be any other way.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

So, I ask again, why are you so obsessed with homosexuals? Hell, I'm a screaming faggot and even I'm not that interested in the subject.
    I feel he keeps posting these kinds of threads because they get a lot of replies and he figures it will win him favors with the Mod Team.

    That is my thoughts on it. Either that or maybe we gonna have to throw this boy a coming out party soon? I am starting to wonder..

    Now you are lying.

    You got your new talking point right from NOM's website.



    You are parroting an organization that specifically exists to spread fear and untruths about gays and lesbians. Furthermore you are doing it deliberately and maliciously in an attempt to play both sides of the fence. This is insulting to everyone's intelligence. This is purely so you can oppose same sex marriage while pretending it has nothing to do with your religious beliefs.

    I can respect a person saying they oppose same sex marriage because of their religious beliefs. I cannot respect a person who plays a game where they claim they do not oppose same sex marriage but rather they oppose the "redefinition" of marriage. That is simply a childish game they play when they want to fool people into believing that this isn't a religious issue.

    Oh Busted! I guess the coming out party is a no go...

    I ask because I've seen some poll results in the past that made no sense given the fairly even makeup of DP.
    There are some unscrupulous ways around this if the individual has a position that is so weak that he cannot defend it verbally... he has to mess with an internet poll to find some false sense of victory.
