    I am for equal gay rights BECAUSE I respect the constitution and bill of rights

    and while I may not always look for a candidates stand on equal gay rights, if they say they are against equal rights and want to put things in place to stop them they will not get my vote because they obviously have no clue what this country is about and they are a huge hypocrite.

    A candidate's stand on it can tell you about the kind of candidate he is. That said, it's not a big issue in times of economic trouble.

    So let me get this straight. You said "I am for equal gay rights BECAUSE I respect the constitution" and then now you're claiming that you didn't say it was a constitutional right?

    Either you're scared ****less of admitting you were wrong, or you never bothered to exercise your "constitutional" right to a primary school education.

    EDIT: Also, it's funny how every other post you make includes some derivative of "LMAO" when there's almost never something actually amusing about the situation.

    PLEASE show me where I said "same sex marriage" is a constitutional right? I'm still waiting

Marriage is not effected by those differences while using the restroom is.
    Last I knew, a toilet with a locked cubicle accommodates both sexes.

    I agree about women in combat roles if they are able to pass the same physical standards as men, so there would be one physical standard and any who are able to pass it would be able to serve in combat. More women then not will not be able to, and that is because genetically, most women do not possess the physical capabilities. It's fair too because there are some small frail men who cannot pass the physical requirements. its just a matter of more men are genetically matched than women are. Combat and war itself is something that needs to most able regardless of why, and political fairness or correctness is not part of the rules of engagement.

    Re: How important do you consider the issue of gay marriage?

    As for the poll itself, I do think too much time and effort is being spent on this issue. Gay people make up only a small percentage of the population and not all gay people even want to get married. I am sure just about all of them want the ability to. But seeing as perhaps 5% of the people who want to get married currently cannot, this issue should not be tops on the list. Tops on the list are issues that effect everyone. Basic priorities should be what the politicians should focus their efforts on.

    Are you implying that the constitution gives the federal government any authority over state marriage laws?

    Why do you cite the constitution and bill of rights with regards to same sex marriage?
