    But the poll obviously refers to a vote in real life, similar to the one that was made in California.
    It is true that what people believe is real in its consequences, so accepting homosexual marriage may push homosexuality more into what society considers "normal" or "natural." But since what is normal/natural is not something we should value, due to the appeal to nature fallacy, this should not affect your vote.
    Of course it should.
    I wouldn't vote against gay marriage, but not for it either.
    There's the point of countering my own theory and there's the point of forwarding the value of equality.

    So you care more (or even the same) about being right than reality or people's rights?

    Unfortunately, yes.
    And it's not 'being right' but rather not contradicting my own theory.

    "fools claim homosexuality isn't natural", hence the argument is whether homosexuality is natural or not.
    If you didn't know what the argument is, how did you know that it could be easily disproved?

    Dude, I've seen his response to this challenge. Trust me, you are so not going to win.

    Now how is that foolish?
    Claiming that some people's thoughts and beliefs that differ than yours are foolish is just wrong.
    The only fools are the ones who do it.
    If you don't care what the word "natural" means, then you cannot in any English sentence claim that homosexuality is "not natural." The claim rests upon there being a specific definition of "natural".

    Your assertion is foolish because it is internally contradictory, irrational, illogical, and inane. Of all the reasons to object to homosexuality, it is easily the most laughable.

    Sorry, other was not a choice.

    But I'll give you a makeup question:

    If a gay guy jumped on your back, would you jerk him off or let him stay there?

    There are about 28 million issues of higher importance.

    government should stay out of the bedroom, including homosexual bedrooms.

    Marriage should be a religious/private matter.

    Sadly, too many people think government needs to regulate morality and too many people think government should bestow privileges on people.

    Then I refuse to vote based on not wanting to convince the Government that controlling marriage is a legitimate function of said government.

    Thanks for the advice but I'll take my chances.
    If you don't care what the word "natural" means, then you cannot in any English sentence claim that homosexuality is "not natural." The claim rests upon there being a specific definition of "natural".
    You misunderstood LiveUninhibited's claim.
    It's not about the meaning of the word natural, we all know what that means.
    LiveUninhibited claimed that I 'appealed to nature' by declaring homosexuality as a bad thing and reasoning this claim with homosexuality being unnatural.
    I can pretty much say homosexuality is unnatural without referring to whether it's a good thing or a bad thing, just like I can say that the Earth is round without giving explanation to whether it's a good thing that it's round or whether it should be square.
    Your assertion is foolish because it is internally contradictory, irrational, illogical, and inane. Of all the reasons to object to homosexuality, it is easily the most laughable.
    Your political lean is foolish because it is internally contradictory, irrational, illogical and inane. Of all the political leanings, it is easily the most laughable.

    I honestly found many way funnier ways to object homosexuality than to claim that it is unnatural, like religion for example.
    Your humor is probably screwed up.

    You still haven't contradicted my theory, all you've done is just talk and talk about how foolish my opinion is.

    People who claim that other people's opinions are foolish because they disagree with it, are idiots who do not belong to this age and time.
    We are way over the "if you don't believe what I do you're probably a fool" era, buddy, and you better get used to it.
