    Didn't vote as I'm obviously not against same sex marriage. Just thought I'd give my two cents.
    I share this view.

    The government should not discriminate based on sex.

    He is not misunderstanding him. He called all legally sanctioned gay relationships "cow manure". I don't think he could have been more explicit about how he felt.

    Are you saying the law bans you from marrying someone of the opposite gender? Or that you can not leave a will, give power or attorney to the person of your choosing?
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I'm saying that I will never want, or have the desire to marry someone of the opposite gender, and that there are benefits that marriage provides that I right now can't have. And even if I could, why should I have to go through more trouble to get those than other couples?

    Wait wait wait wait. Are you seriously saying that gay people are innately and fundamentally attracted to people of the same sex? That's it's part of the functional definition of gay? And that in the natural state (state free from force) gay people would naturally and innately choose people of the same sex to marry? And since that is the natural state, anything which causes deviation from it (such as preventing one from marrying the person they would naturally choose) would require the use of outside force? Yeah right. Next you're going to say that the Marriage License is the legal contractual form through which government force is applied to same sex couples thus preventing them from achieving legal marriage status. What? That doesn't make sense. You have the same rights as everyone else; you can marry a guy. I don't even see why you're bitching.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
