    I appreciate the thought in your post, but that doesn't mean it responded to the topic. I didn't call you a liar. Your response was interesting, but it didn't address the topic. You said you wouldn't mind gay couples attending the same kind of counseling as straight couples, but you still didn't say it would be okay for them to marry if they did.

    I'm glad you think everyone should undergo counseling before getting married, but that doesn't address the question of equal protection unless you go that last step and say that if SS couples did jump through your hoops, you'd support marriage for them. Do you?

Such as tax Breaks, special insurance rates, and so on. If Two Homo Men can get Married legally, then why couldn't two straight Men get married also? (Not that I would want to, but just sayin) Just seems to be more discrimination against Straight Guys to me. Male is Male, and Female is Female, regardless of sexual orientation.-So my question is, if made legal, should two people of the same sex be allowed to marry, whether they are Homosexuals or not? ---this could be interesting
    Just a suggestion....To get and accurate count you should have checked the box that allows you to see how everyone voted.......The way you did it the lefties can vote many times...Showing their name precludes that.......

    Or the righties can vote many times. This is why you should NEVER listen to polls, NP. Both sides could mess with them.

    Actually, NP, one of the cool things about being a DP Admin., is that I can see who voted even if the poll is NOT public. Guess what I found out? 5 "guests" voted for "no"; 8 "guests" voted for "yes". Everyone else was a DP member. That means, as of now, 13 members voted for "no" and 33 members voted for "yes". And several of those who voted for yes, identify themselves as conservatives.

    So... you are completely wrong about your assumption.

    I trust people to not cheat---it's that simple. Just a poll after all.----But even though I personally may not agree with Same sex marriage, or for that matter, marriage in it's present state, I think if same sex marriage is to become Law, it should cover everyone equally. and not favor Gay People, over Straight people. --To replace one form of discrimination with another is illogical at best. Same rules for everybody, and then I'm Jake. ---I can see two single guys with no family wanting to join forces for mutual protection, as they grow older. Someone with the legal right to help them with legal and health matters. Someone to visit them in the hospital, when they only allow in family members. Some one to represent their interest, should they become incapacitated. And to get the same tax benefits other Married people receive. It wouldn't bother me one bit to allow people to have somebody they can count on. --Sex would not have to even enter into the equation.

    Do you imagine there will be tests to determine whether a same-sex couple is genuinely gay before they'll be allowed to marry? Only I don't recall seeing that proposed anywhere by anyone. And I still seriously doubt that there will be many--if any--straight men who will want to marry a friend. Some women may be more disposed to it I suppose, but I think most men would hardly even dare to broach the idea... even in jest.

    Same-sex marriage is as absurd as having animal marriage accepted and recognized by the state.

    Can someone please tell K-1 how ignorant he is? I can't handle him. He's too ridiculous.
