    I don't believe in moral decay. There are merely different moralities.

    Civilization is destroyed when two opposing moral groups vie for control over each other instead of over their own destinies.

    Nothing decays morality more than too much wealth. I guess that's an argument for significantly limiting income inequality.

    This is where we disagree, I do. Does not make me correct, so I will just agree to disagree.

    History will be written by the victor. The destruction of a civilization is not always a bad thing.

    Sometimes violent change is needed.

    I would say "unavoidable" instead of "needed" for the slight, subtle difference it implies, but generally I'm in agreement.

    I do not support gay marraige because I see it as no good for society, not me personally.
    How is it "not good" for society?

    You accept speed limits because of the threat of force if you disobey.
    That certainly is a reality but, I agree that "speed kills". If everyone drove like we all wanted to many would be killed and injured. It's the needs of the many versus the needs of the few type thing.

    Please leave the righteous indignation at home.
    Does righteous indignation make you feel uncomfortable?

    If it was based on a "fear" you may have had a point.

    Because it is not morally acceptable that a marraige is a man and a man etc.

    Well gays make up what? 2% of the population. Looks like the "needs" of the many in this case are being met.

    No, it makes you look silly and boring. No insult intended, but you asked.

    White-wash tactic, a form of stawman. You're trying to derail the conversation.

    ok, good point, though that wasnt intentional, but my point is why do morals have to play a part in it, marriage isn't a religious institution any more, it is simply a symbol of two peoples love, and while they can get the legal bits with a civil union, gays just want the symbloism to go with it, and why is that such a bad thing?
