    I'm just saying, you said it was a state issue and implied somehow therefore not your place to express your opinion on that particular issue. So rather than tiddy taddying around the question why wont you just answer it?

    So i will reword my statement. Gov should restrict the rights of "abnormal" things?

    not as you have it worded, no. giving away 80% of your income to charity is also abnormal.

    to be fair, calling gay people abnormal makes the definition meaningless as well since you're basing the abnormality of a whole person on a single trait. by that logic, every single person is abnormal since we all have at least one abnormal trait and the term becomes meaningless.

    it seemed to me the question was specifically aimed at their identity as gay people.

    Yes and i suspect the reason that isn't outlawed is because it doesn't harm you and it has nothing to do with you if i decided to give away 80% of my income to charity.

    Just like it doesn't harm you if members of the same sex want to marry. So you have no legitimate argument to want to restrict there rights.

    Gosh, the far right moan and whine about big daddy government (like the teabaggers) and go about trying to impose there view on the world onto everyone. Consistency much?

    Exactly, if not it could be worded are happy/jovial people abnormal?

    You have the right to not be offended. Defined: To not be offeneded for any reason. Example: Slaves should have never been freed. Logic: They had the right to not be offended. Fact: Insistance by the indignant that a fact or oppinion is incorrect through double speak. Illogical, dictorial, ignorant, insispid prose.
