    Massive over-simplification of the issue, but I also take it to mean you support SSM and the equal rights to it along with the equal rights to SSD (same sex divorce).


    I am reminded of the "First they came..." speech when it comes to debates such as SSM.

    I may not have a horse in the parade, but I can still fight for the right of the parade to exist.

    First they came for the communists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for me
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.

    I'm not against it, if that's what you mean. All the same, it's their fight, they can fight it. I got my own problems to worry about.

    Since we're being asked to use a single digit to sum up an expansive political platform, I think over-simplification is the theme of this thread.

    The "1" is a double edged sword. Those of us who chose it aren't going to stand in the way, but neither are we going to help out with 'support'. Sink or swim, we don't care either way.

    I think some of the people who chose 1 are of this mind, but I think there is a significant amount of them that would go out of their way in order to show up to vote against gay marriage. That wold be standing in the way.

    I think some people like to pretend they don't care about the issue when in fact they care very much about the issue. They just confuse adamant opposition to gay marriage with not thinking the issue is important. In order to adamantly oppose something, you have to think it's fairly important.

    I gave it a 2 because I remembered a statistic somewhere saying 15% op population is gay (not claiming this its true just thought i remembered reading it, can't be bothered tolook it up) so rounded up and got 2. Personally I have no problems with SSM but I think there are far far more important things to deal with that affect far far more people.

    Tucker I absolutely agree with you well said...there are so many people and some I know personally that dont have the fortitude to say im against gay marriage...they think they are supposed to or they are intimidated into saying they dont care or they are for it in public...
    Its much harder to be truthful and upfront about your "TRUE" feelings on the issue...online..because it winds up a group hump on the person...what I find quite interesting that none of the sarcasm and name calling EVER happens in real life when the conversation arises and I tell the truth that im against gay marriage...I know the reason for that however I will always be upfront and honest about my position

    Well, I don't oppose it because it doesn't affect me in any way. To me, deciding on whether I want gin or rum for breakfast is a more pressing issue. Today, I chose gin and cranberry. It's like the Sahara in my mouth, and I love it.

    Not me.

    Now, do gays do flying ****s, or just regular ones? Just how much do you really know about gay sex?

    Oh, I believed you when you said it earlier. I didn't mean to give the impression that I didn't believe you.

    I was just making an observation based on the implication that everyone that chose 1 wouldn't' stand in the way of gay marriage, when that's not the case since I know that a significant amount of the one votes actually would stand in the way of gay marriage if given the opportunity to do so by way of a vote. Many of them would alter their normal behavior in order to do so and take very active anti-gay marriage stances, which also indicates that they care more about the issue than they are letting on (Jerry argues against gay marriage a lot, but he's consistent in his argument that it's because he doesn't care enough to support it and he would need to be convinced in order to supporting it).
