    OK, so it takes a bit more than just that word. How about this sentence: "Of course! Homophobic freaks would make up 98 % of the no votes."

    I might not agree with the statement, but that would not be absolutist.

    Not even close to being true. It has more to do with the fear of changing something that has remained unchanged for thousands of years. I happen to live with a family who would vote "no", none of them homophobic.

    EDIT: Actually, they already have voted "no". The proposition passed through Virginia some time ago.

    I don't agree...it needs to be somewhat weak to reflect the ambiguity of the statement, but I am open to suggestions. Give it another shot.

    The vast majority of people voting against gay marriage are homophobic freaks.

    Do you think that's true? I think that the vast majority of those voting against gay marriage would be religious folks who, not homophobic, just take their belief in religion, literally; those who are set in their ways and do not understand that this would not affect them; or those who believe that there should not be special privileges for any people who are married. I don't think that homophobes make up the vast majority, that's why I like my statement, better. Do you have evidence that shows me incorrect? Again, I am open to this being possible.

    Personal opinion only. I guess it would depend on how you define the term homophobe. To me, it is anyone with an irrational desire to not grant gays full rights, including the right to marry and serve openly in the military.

    If I had to vote again, I don't know...I guess that would depend on how many more pro-gm folks told me they didn't care about the family or how I voted, and how many pro-gm started making the issue about the family.

    If gay-marriage is about raising children, then I'm for it.

    If gay-marriage is about individual 'rights', then I oppose it.
    Who said heterosexual marriage is about raising children? I mean, that might be what your marriage is about, but there are infertile people or those who don't want kids. Do you propose they not be allowed to marry either?

    Appeal to tradition is a fallacy, though. It's very wrong for people to vote against allowing others to have the same right to form a legal contract with who they love and loves them. They are causing suffering for no reason at all.

    When did marrying who you love become a special privilege? It would seem like equality under the law to me.

    I would say that most of those who vote against gay marriage are ignorant bigots, and none of them understand the basics of morality or logic.
