    Look all I am saying is that its easy to say that I believe in liberty and freedom as it relates to me. That aspect of freedom is easy. Even a dictator embraces that. We all want our own personal freedom and we are all quick to point out when its infringed.

    However, its much harder to extend the same philosophy of freedom that we embrace ourselves to others that we don't agree with. Thats hard. Its hard to say that I don't agree with this groups beliefs or how they live their life, but my personal beliefs alone, even if I am in the majority, are not sufficient justification for denying them a right or privilege.

    With a 50% divorce rate, why do gays want to get married?

    Are homosexuals that are prone to getting married, on average, rich or poor?

    Because if they are poor, I'll certainly be harmed due to the reduction in tax revenue that comes from joint filing as the debt will go up more and I'll get taxed later to pay for it.

    I'm half serious if anyone is wondering.

    When you start being as consistent as you want me to be, we'll talk about it.

    That ain't tonite, for sure.

    In terms of personal liberties, I am quite consistent.

    Well it is an institution that has the hooks of the straight community into it. Can gays and lesbians do a better job. We have yet to find out. I only wish that they respected the institution more.

    Here's what I posted on this subject in another thread:
    So, you won't be hurt personally, yet you want to deny freedom to a minority based on your fear of what might happen if their chains were removed.

    Okay. We can all understand that.
