    Another NP thread about gays? Once again, nearly everyone on the forum doesn't have a problem if NP is gay even those who do oppose gay marriage.

    I do not think a person opposing gay marriage is a bigot or homophob. I strongly support legalizing gay marriage.

    I have no problem with gays getting married. I have less of a problem with those who don't agree with me.

    Assuming "traditional marriage" is code for "no queers settling down," then yes. If "traditional marriage" means something else, then it would depend on what it means.

    ^ That was neither necessary nor humorous in my opinion.

    I support Traditional Marriage.

    In the sense that marriage had been the foundation of a family and to raise children, which gays have proven they are capable of doing.

    If he only SAYS it, no.

    If he acts to oppose gays getting married, then yes. He is actively discriminating.

    "Traditional marriage" is not as "traditional" as its supporters think it is.

    Myriad cultures have myriad variations on "tradition" so there is no uniform "tradition" in our melting pot country.

    That IS my opinion. MAYBE. Sorry, I can't think in black and white. To me, life is in grayscale.

    I don't agree with the philosophy of prohibiting SSM. To me, it violates the principles of equality. However, I don't think that believing something opposite to my beliefs is of itself wrong.

    Since I'm not privy to any actions that relate to this, I'll stick with maybe.

    If you have a "difference of opinion" on same-sex marriage, fine. Don't marry another dude. No one is talking about making same-sex marriage mandatory for everyone. What you actually mean is that you have a "difference of opinion" about someone ELSE'S marriage, and you want to use the law to ban it from happening.

    If there was a popular movement to outlaw veterans from getting married, what would you think? Would you respect it as a movement with which you simply had a difference of opinion...even if they succeeded in getting YOUR marriage annulled?

    I guess billions of people have been misguided for thousands of years.
