    Re: On a scale of 1 to 10 how important is gay marriage?

    I'm gay, and I give the issue a 1. Comparing it to other issues, I think it ranks last. I believe people should be able to do just about whatever they choose to do- however, marraige, whether gay or straight, has no meaning to me because I believe it has become a failed institution. As a gay man who is having a civil union ceremony on June 2nd, I want no part of this "marraige" thing. The chances of my relationship surviving are much better if we don't get married, statistically.

    These types of issues are more about government intrusion these days (the intrusion of the federal government into state, local, and personal affairs) than it is about equality and justice. Frankly, it would rate higher on my list if it were a state or local issue, but I think the federal government should just leave it be.

    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).
    Oh. I think it's better for them to do this on their own. I mean, it's not a pressing issue like oppression, segregation, and outright mass hatred boiling over into a huge series of violent events. If it were, I'd be protesting with them, but in this case they got it. Obama is already on their side, what more do they need?

    I view it as a sin, but I neither block nor support it because America isn't a theocracy.

    Maybe it's more important than we realize.

    this is an aside, but I thought Obama opposed gay marriage? Did he change his stance on that?

    To most homosexuals, the issue is a 10. I'm not a homosexual, but I am a citizen who strongly believes that until every segment of our society is treated equally, our society can not be totally free. So for me personally, it's an 8-9.

    In the 21st century, there is no excuse for the USA, a country supposedly built upon personal freedom, to still have a segment of our population that can be legally, and institutionally, discriminated against.

    It's not a very large issue at all, I'd rate it at 1 compared to the other issues and problems facing the Republic. Quite honestly, I don't see why we get hung up on it so much. Let same sex couples marry and let's move on to more important issues.

    Actually, he did oppose gay marriage at one point, and later say that his position on the subject was "evolving".

    Important in regards to what? It's not a make or break deal for me. I would be happy voting for an anti-SSM candidate if I thought their actions would help the country.
