    Level of tolerance is an individual achievement, not necessarily one of ideology (yet). I think those who attempt to delegitimize opposition rather than disagreeing with it are demonstrating intolerance.

    So far, I would say the ssm opponents are winning the "who is the most intolerant" race by a mind boggling margin. Huge.
    I don't want to deny you gays anything...I just don't want to change the definition of marriage.

    Changing the state's definition of marriage isn't intolerant, unless you are trying to deny people the right to marry by the way you are defining it.

    You can maintain your own intolerant definition of marriage, but the state's definition is changing to be more tolerant. The state choosing one definition among the infinite number of definitions possible isn't intolerant to those who merely disagree with that definition.

    You are trying to claim the mantle of victim because you honestly think its a game, like capture the flag or something, and whoever is called victim wins the argument. But, being victimized by the denial of rights has real consequences, often detrimental, in the lives of people who are truly victimized. It isn't a game, Navy, these are real people with real lives and who are really harmed by people like you. Give it up.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    You are entitled to your opinion Navy. What you are NOT entitled to is forcing others to live within your bigoted world. Your right to your opinion ceases when it DIRECTLY impinges on the rights of another person. In other words, you have every right to live in your own bigoted world. However, you do not have the right to impose that on others.

I am not allowed to have my own opinion if it disagrees with theirs...Now I ask you who are the intolerant ones?
    So you are just concerned about the word "marriage"....


    I had a debate/conversation with someone about this...I feel it should be all or nothing with marriage. Either you give the rights and privileges to all married couples or none of them...straight or gay.

    Personally, I think the government should have nothing to do with marriage

    Kids, love and promoting stable families is the primary rationale for SSM. Not sure what retarded talking heads you are listening to, but you might want to find smarter ones.

    Credit where it is due though, basing your argument on "talking heads say so" is unique. Really stupid, but original.

    Israel has two types of marriage. The government one in which the government is involved and the religious one in which the religious community regulates. I would not be terribly upset if government got out of the marriage business, but it would be difficult since marriage has entrenched itself so deeply in the laws.

    Israel can do what it wants...we need full separation from that country.


    I know that wasn't your point, but I'm throwing that out there.

    If they would just call every marriage a "civil union" than you would make a lot of people happy who are concerned about a word. Civil unions can replace marriage for all couples and then we can be done with this.

    Do you think people who fashion themselves victims of oppression are ever going to be done with it? I don't, not as long as there are Starbuck's liberals to do their bidding.
