    Re: If there was a National Vote on Equal rights for gays, what would you do. [W:72,

    Personally, I do not see the point of disallowing people from being legally married, simply because they are of the same sex.

    My parents, being highly religious Christians, would disagree, on the grounds of "1 man 1 woman is the right way"...probably..., but...I just don't see how it really causes ANY issues, apart from upsetting some people. Which isn't a reason to stop it.


    Edit: But then, my parents don't even vote, due to religious beliefs, so...

    Do you believe in separation of church and state? Are you a proponent of the Constitution?
    Marriage is not named as a religious sacrament. Its called Holy Matrimony.

    Popular vote my left wing friend but we will have to watch the ballots closely or they would do what they did here in Washington stuff the ballot with left wing votes
    or like they did in Ohio where democrats over voted by hundred over the registered voters in the County.

    Maine is not a "blue left wing state". It has a tea-party-promoted Republican Governor, one Republican and one independent Senators, and doesn't fit very well into any simple political category. It was a rock-solid Republican bastion once, of course - before the concentration of "social conservatives" in the party had reached a toxic level.

    One could argue if a independent had not split the vote, the democrat would have won againist the current republican govenor.

    Absolutely. If one day someone will advocate forcing churches to perform gay marriages, I will be the first to protest, in no uncertain terms.
    But the State is not a church. Refusing to certify civil, secular contracts between gays is, indeed, discrimination (and I don't use this word lightly or often), and it must end.
