Nope. Civil liberties and states rights.
Why wont you support Civil Unions? Isn't that a middle ground?
I do. Or gay marriage. Or none at all. Whatever the state wants. With no federal government telling states what they can do on the matter. Just like
See, I'm the conservative in this discussion. You aren't.
Nope, its all or nothing, first the boy scouts, then benefits same as a married couple, forcing your lifestyle choice on people as if you are
now a minority in the sense of a ethic background, then the marriage.....where will it stop?
Nope, that's neo-con black and white thinking. Big government must make NY be like Alabama. And in that regard, where will that
By your reckoning, then men should marry boys, heck transvestites marry whatever......
Nope. Not my reckoning. Pedophillia will never be legal. Know why? People won't vote for it in their state. But they do vote for gay marriage in some
states and you think you know better than the people in Vermont or Massachusetts and want the government to "do something." By your reckoning, why
don't the people in Vermont just make you King, you think so highly of your world view.
Civil unions are fine with me, I don't care. Marriage I do.
And it's your authoritative insistance that everyone agree no matter what they think or vote on the matter, that makes you wrong on this issue.
Not wrong in the sense of opinion. You can call Massachusetts stupid all day, like I might think those in the 11 states that voted to ban gay marriage
are stupid. But I'm not trying to overturn those rulings at the federal level am I?
You're trying to impose upon the federal government to force people in state's that don't agree with you to agree with you.
Unless you aren't for the Constitutional amendment ban and are just running your mouth about what Massachusetts should do
, in which case who
Louisiana doesn't care what I think. Why should NY care what you think?
