    If there was a National Vote on Equal rights for gays, what would you do [W:72,96,331

    Ok for some fantasy reason there's going to be a national vote on equal rights for gays.

    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

    Kind of weighted the poll choices there, J. Might as well have added "because you're a homophobic douchebag" to the second option.

    I'd be more confident this was the case if there weren't already recently decided cases saying that florists and cake shops cannot refuse to serve same sex weddings, even on religious beliefs. Apparently their first amendment rights doen't really mean much. What guarantee is there that the same line of reasoning will not be applied to churches?

    Guess even just asking that makes me a conspiricy nut huh?

    Is there some other kind of person who opposes gay rights?

    That's a rhetorical question. The answer is no.

    Are illegal alien homosexuals who were married in Mexico before illegally crossing the US border recognized in case law as well?

    I know that there are a lot of illegal Mexican immigrant males that are super machismo... is there a secret layer of homophbia there as well?

    Flamers should have the same right to marry as heterosexual screw-ups do...
