    If you oppose same-sex marriage, you are...

    a. ...rather arrogant to assume you have any right sticking your nose in business that truly does not concern you and most likely angry that you do not have enough authority to run the lives of other people as you would like.

    b. ...a lonely person that really should get a life.

    c. ...just someone who likes to spread negativity, whine and stomp your feet about harmless issues that don't mean **** to a tree.

    d. ...not invited to a lot of parties.

    e. ...a Lawrence Welk fan and a Geritol devotee.

    f. ... delusional religious nut.

    g. ... all of the above?

    That is not my reason and you are at this point lying about what I said.

    And you are still avoiding my question, I wonder why?

    PS I already said I would not have a problem with couples who cannot reproduce not getting married. So you have no excuse to doge anymore.

    Just be honest.

    Could you clarify what your question was in a lucid concise manner?

    It might be my fault for not getting it or maybe you just were not clear enough. Either way I would like you to ask it again.

    It was the fault of your edit after I responded, lol.

    All I am asking is...

    If gay couples get all of the same rights under the law as heterosexual couples do under a civil union. Why does it matter to so many gay couples it be called marriage?

    Because it is a legal term. If it was all called civil union heterosexual or homosexual under the law I'm sure there would be alot less of a problem. Of course there would be the screamers on both sides but they would be a lot less few.

    What does it matter if they do? The semantics are meaningless here.

    I'm opposed to gay marriage because I'm opposed to marriage. What does that make me?

    Re: If you oppose same-sex marriage, you are...

    If you oppose state recognition of same-sex marriage, then:

    1. You could be a bigot and think its the same as allowing adults to marry animals or children.

    2. It could be for religious reasons.

    3. You are obviously either ignorant of the basic principles of liberty, or you don't care.

    I disagree.

    It is about the religious sanctity of a bond between a man and a woman, it is not a civil union to me. I agreed to love honor and cherish my wife till death. That is allot more than some civil union recognized by the state. It is a marriage recognized by God.

    If the marriage benefits of the state were to disappear tomorrow, my marriage would still be intact, it would change nothing.

    The really sad thing is since the interference of government in marriage it has cheapened it, and what it was supposed to stand for. Things like making divorce to easy for stupid reasons.

    To bad the majority of so called Christian couples don't see what hypocrites they are with being married 3 times or more.

    Anyway I talk the talk and walk the walk for my principles. I hope you will continue to do the same.
