    Gay marriage opponents could very good arguements against gay marriage.Unfortuntly they cant make them without out undermining straight marriage,which is what they are trying to accuse gay marriage of.So maybe gay marriage does undermine marriage by drawing attention to it.

    Don't flatter yourself Navy....you should be able to figure it out through my answer.

    Why would anyone in this country feel that THEY are entitled to certain rights and privleges while denying those same rights and privleges to another human being?

    I believe that everyone is entitled to the same rights and privileges that I am. If I felt otherwise....I would be selfish and bigoted.

    Thankfully the people that are responding to the poll don't seem to agree with you my left wing friend........Kind of restores my faith in human nature..........

    Then the vast majority of Americans are (by your definition) bigoted. The big question is why people should care. It's kind of stupid way to think of bigotry.

    Forget the vast majority of Americans... if opposing gay marriage=bigoted, almost every human being in history was bigoted.

    Gay marriage wasn't even an issue until very recently. I somehow doubt that everyone who existed before the mere possibility of allowing gays to marry came up were bigots.

    Call me whatever you like: Gay marriage is an absurd invention of the extreme left.

    Although conservatives are staunchly opposed to homosexuality on the grounds of it being irrefutably immoral, conservatives are not "anti-gay." Conservatives believe that gays should not be discrimnated against, and should be allowed the basic rights afforded to normal people, but the idea that a man and a man can be called a "married couple" is so preposterous that one has to wonder at how insane liberal policy in American can go. Next, I suppose liberals are going to be storming the streets for the right of animals to marry...

    Why not? If an entire society supports prison or death for homosexuals, the entire society is bigoted, easy as that.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Irrefutably immoral eh? Show that this can be derived from objective morality (no Bible quotes, if that is what you are into). What is being debated here is a legal practice not a religious practice. Religions can decide who they do or do not decide to marry, but in the eyes of the state all ought to have the basic rights afforded to 'normal' people, no? What makes marriage an exceptional right in this era?

    I am sure if animals had an interest in marriage, there would be people fighting for it.
