    2.) Same sex 'unions' should have all the rights and responsibilites of 'unions' just like everyone else, but Detroit Tiger fans shouldn't have the legal right to be Boston Red Sox fans or vice versa.

    3.) Yeah I know some states' SC judges have ruled otherwise for same sex marriage, but their reasoning isn't valid, and it's ideological.
    4.) And the majority of American people disagree with the judgement of states' SC judges that decree marriage should be a right for all because otherwise there's discrimination.
    1.) this analogy factually has nothing to do with the topic and doesnt relate in any equal way what so ever

    2.) see #1

    3.) thats an interesting opinion based on ZERO facts and defeated by facts, laws, rights, and precedence

    4.) false but more importantly even if this was true its also meaningless to the discussion.

    when it comes to equal rights it wouldnt matter if 90% of the country didnt like it, see womans rights, minority rights and interracial marriage.

    Wow.....that's some twisted logic there.
    Talk about an apples to triangles comparison.

    I have no clue where you stand on SSM.

    Are you saying gay people should have the right to marry (legal definition - not religious definition) or not?

    2.) yes you factually are because theres nothing to debate, just the question needs answered.
    equal rights and marriage is one in the same also decided by court cases.

    you opinion otherwise is whats immaterial to the thread and question.
    Ok, here is my answer. Would I vote for equal rights, Yes. Would I vote for homosexual marriage, No, it has absolutely nothing to do with equal rights but who gets to benefit from a pre-existing inequality. Your question and answers attempt to inaccurately connect the two when they are separate issues.

    If they don't like the way things are, then fund research to find the cause, create a cure and fix it.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    1.) good thank you for answering
    2.) sorry they factually cant be separated
    3.) facts, the law, rights and court cases and precedence prove your wrong
    4.) see #3 there is no attempt they are connected facts make it that way, if you disagree let us know when you have more than failed opinions on your side.
    5.) I have no clue what this is even talking about, research what?

    me an many others are very very happy equality is winning and discrimination and or bigotry is losing

    if you dont like it theres always russia, HAVE FUN!

    The government should stop issuing marriage licenses or give them to anybody who requests them.

    Save me all the failed arguments that its not equal rights or it should be left to the states or the government should be out of it all together blah blah blah nonsense, thats in other threads. This is simply about how YOU would vote if this happened.

    and yes for the conspiracy theorist out there we will waste time and double down on the first amendment and say of course churches cant be forced to do these legal marriages, even though it has nothing to do with them anyway and this already cant happen.

    so there it is, its voting time, what do you do.

    Yes - you think gays should have equal rights and the right to legal marriage
    No - you dont think they should have equal rights and you want them banned from getting legal marriage.
    No vote - you stay home and dont vote at all
    They already have equal rights they want special rights.
