    I'll save you the time, I know you don't care about my view.
    It's a reasonable argument, so I will take it into account.

    Also, don't think I'm under any illusion that I'm special. People either engage me or ignore me on account of how reasonable my arguments may be.

    Two persons of different sex can do that, so why not two of the same sex?

    They'll think of some whacky reason though.

    In any event, my point wasn't about the numbers, but rather the absurd suggestion that everyone who supports gay marriage/civil unions must be secretly gay.
    Or perhaps this forum has way to many liberals as members or perhaps someone is stuffing the ballot box...You rarely see that number of people voting on any poll and it went up over 100 in one night a week after the poll was posted.........Something is rotten in Denmark.........

    Who cares? It's a stupid internet poll, it has no scientific value whatsoever. Everyone knows that, even you - right?

    I was trying to point out why the figures are so far off from the national polls........

    Re: Should Same Sex People be allowed to Marry

    Let's consider the kind of choices that married people can make for one another. If you are in the hospital your partner usually gets to decide who does and does not get to see you. If one partner is in the hospital on life support then the other partner can decide to pull the plug. Once you are dead, then your partner has first say in where they bury you. If one partner trashes their credit, then both partner's suffer. If one partner falls in love with someone, then there are the costs of divorce. If one partner dies, then the other partner is usually first in line to inherit their estate. If there are kids in the picture from previous relationships/marriage, then even if the other partner is not biologically related to them, he/she can challenge for visitation/custody.

    You really think a lot of straight guys are going to trust other straight guys with those kind of decisions?
    Absolutely. In fact, this is one of my gripes with the whole government controlled marriage thing.

    None of the girls I have ever been intimate with were people I would want making decisions about whether to pull the plug or not. They could never have brought themselves to pull the plug, regardless of my wishes in the matter.

    Even if my hypothetical wife were capable of making the decision to pull the plug, that is not the sort of burden I would want to place on her shoulders. I would much rather trust my best friend to make that kind of decision.

    Well, that's easy, just give someone else power of attorney.

    But you may change your mind when you get married.
