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

    I'm gonna go with 'normal' as my response. I'm a traditionalist who believes in the sanctity of marriage and of family. I'm sure to be beaten over the head by the hordes of people who can't possibly understand traditional beliefs, but so be it.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    There are many reasons that one could have for opposing same-sex marriage. It is entirely possible that such a person is a bigot or ignorant, but knowing a person's stance on gay marriage doesn't tell you anything other than their stance on gay marriage.

    I pretty much see it the way P/N does.

    This does not mean I don't want homosexuals and lesbians to have the same protections under the law, or hate someone who is gay in any way.

    I have no problem with civil unions, but as I have said before I do not see it as a marriage.

    It's not that we/they don't understand, it's that we believe that your subjective views shouldn't dictate what is legal / illegal for the rest of us.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Granted you have your beliefs but I do not think the law/state should have beliefs.

    And that is my belief

    But your subjective views should dictate what is legal/illegal.

    I voted "other". My actual vote would have went to "some one with a differing political opinion than mine" if that option had been there.

    First off gay marriage is not illegal. State recognition of it is in some States. Secondly what advantage is there in making State recognition of gay marriage illegal? I do see advantages in the State recognizing gay marriage one of them being marriage encourages stability.
