    I still don't get it. Why would anyone be opposed to gay marriage? How does it affect anyone elses life?

    I mean, I am a conservative on most things, but my premise is "you do as you please, I do as I please".....

    I dont know. Call me naive. I dont get it.

    And thank goodness we don't have simple majority rule in this country... or law based on a small sample poll

    I am against gay marriage... and always will be.. but I am also one that thinks the government should be out of the marriage business all together... treat everyone equally in terms of taxation, inheritance, power of attorney for family, etc... but get the hell out of marriage licenses... leave marriage back to the religious institutions....

    As for pot... will continue to be against that as well... as I will be with other illegal drugs

    Yes, you're right.

    They waited until Thursday, August 12th of 2010 to release these phony results, and never thought to do it before. As perfect time as ever to advance their top secret gay-loving agenda!

    It's mostly the older generations who are homophobic. While I myself am in the older category, and while I've never understood same sex attraction, I too always figured it was none of my business what went on between consenting adults. Over the years, I've known enough opposite sex marriages that were far more dangerous to familial stability, for sure.

    Yeah, the only poll anyone should pay any attention to is Rasmussen. All the others MUST BE biased. :lol:

    No.. most CONSERVATIVES said it was not something within the enumerated powers of the constitution... and that entitlement, hand holding, and giving you what you want for personal needs is not the job of government
