    Well, at least some of you.

    Q: If you could outlaw all abortion, making it equal legally to murder in this country, but in exchange would have to accept gay marriage as legally equal to heterosexual marriage and grant gay married couples equal standing with heterosexual married couples in terms of adopting unwanted children, some of whom would have otherwise been aborted, would you?

    C. Neither of the above.

    No copping out, punk. We already have one reality, would you switch it to this hypothetical one?

    I feel as if I'd be winning out entirely on that, so I'd say "Yes" to making abortion equal to murder and having gay marriage made legally equal to heterosexual marriage.

    Who you calling punk, jackass? Let's try to keep those net balls in check, huh?

    What you are doing here is exactly how reality is played out on a daily basis. Coercing people to choose the lesser of the two evils as some sort of "compromise." All that is compromised is our integrity.

    I am against abortion as anything being medical necessity.

    I am against gay marriage. They were offered the civil union with full legal rights; which, I would have agreed to. THEY, not I, rejected it because they want legitimization; which, I will not give.

    I'm not compromising on either topic.

    Ok ok, relax. The punk wasn't meant as an affront, I was recalling the words of Mr. P. earlier in the day. Sorry if I flared your temper, sir. Not my intention.

    You did not "flare my temper," so no problem. I merely responded to your smartass remark with one of my own.

    My point to not choosing is in my post preceeding this one.

    Just making sure I didn't rile your anger. Smartass remarks are always appreciated; just making sure that's all it was, as that's all mine was :) :beer:
