    Asking if changing the name of cow **** to t-bone steak seems more direct and to the point. Everybody agrees that changing the name of cow **** to t-bone steak does not change the fact it is still cow ****.


    It would be easier for you just to say you don't support civil unions or gay marriage because you don't support any government sanctioned same sex relationship.
    Most posters already know I do not support gay marriage regardless if the term used is "marriage" or some paper coated or politically correct term for marriage such as "domestic partnership" or "civil union" or some other term is used.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Most posters probably don't give a turd about you or or views and most certainly wouldn't make an effort to remember. Unless you have a valid argument to make, it isn't worth remembering.

    For or against gay marriage, who cares what your opinion is if you don't have a valid argument to make one way or the other? That is what a debate forum is about. Not to preach, but to prove your views are based in reason.

    I am sure most posters remember your wacko truffer threads,but your arguments are not valid nor are they worth any effort to read.So whats your point?

    Most people could care less what your reasons are if your reasons do not support what they believe. Its why you constantly post truffer threads.

    I sincerely doubt you even know what my arguments are so I'll let you do your strutting and move on.

    I have no idea what a "truffer" thread is nor do I care. People who only look for information to support what they believe lack any degree of critical thinking skills and thus aren't worth debating.

    james... you are confusing CriticalThought with another poster. CriticalThought does not post "truffer" threads.

    So james, I was trying to figure out what you meant by "closet gay marriage supporters" and I'm really not sure. Is it...
    People who support gay marriage covertly?
    People who support marriage for closet gays?
    People who support gay marriage ceremonies being conducted in closets?
    Or is it something else entirely?

    Maybe james is suggesting that all supporters of gay marriage are themselves gay, but in the closet. This would spring from the idea that no one supports anything except from a very close, immediate sense of self-interest.

    Yeah, I should have thought of that possibility, but it's just such a dumb concept it didn't even occur to me. I do hope that isn't what he meant.

    Wow, that would be weird. According to this poll, 42% of Americans support gay marriage. Lots and lots of closeted gays out there.
