    Where else does that fly? Guns? Let's see... if you support a handgun ban, but you're okay with hunting rifles, will you get labeled as pro-2nd amendment? Of course not. What about science? If you're against vaccination, but have no problem with advil, will you get labelled as a supporter of modern medicine? Nope. What about animal welfare? Do people who make a distinction as to what animals they'd rather eat get labelled "part time vegetarian"? Your attempt to be a middle child in this discussion isn't working. You can't consider yourself pro-family and oppose types of families because of nothing other than religious belief. There is no reasonable argument to be made against gays having families that doesn't rely on religious belief and people keep demonstrating it. So no. You can't be 'pro-family' and then define families with subjective beliefs.

    Regardless of whether it's mother/father, mother/mother, or father/father.

    In fact most who support SSM happen to be in a "traditional" mother/father/children nuclear family.

    Go figure.
    yeah in my experience the people that I know who are against minorities and women are PRO-Rights in that they support rights for themselves to not give rights to minorities and women

    Conservatives are not anarchists. Even libertarians are not anarchists.

    Anyone who is not an anarchist recognizes that there are certain standards of law, order, and decency that have to be upheld in order to maintain a healthy and orderly society. Among these are preserving the institutions of marriage and family, as necessary to form the foundation of such a society.

    No, that is not marriage. That never has been marriage, and never will be marriage.

    Marriage always has been, and always will be, only between a man and a woman.

    It is not pro-X to demand that things that are not X be considered to be X, and treated the same as X. All that this does, at best, is to weaken and dilute the definition of whatever X it is that is under discussion.

    EXACTLY, the facts prove its all X

    So thats why your posts claiming SSM isnt a real marriage is a mentally retarded, dishonest and asinine claim that is illogical and quite hilarious.

    No. It's simply "pro-my narrow definition of who is allowed to have a family."

    Being anti-SSM means being anti-all the things gay couples heading families do, including raising children and caring for their partner in medical situations. It is really pro-family dysfunction, if the people involved happen to be gay.
