    How can you vote on what rights others are allowed to have?

    I'm heterosexual and married with one child. For what it's worth, I think gay people should have the same rights as heterosexuals.

    Certainly is a pretty queer issue, isn't it?

    Marriage is not a right... the government should be out of the marriage business... have all family units/partnerships recognized as civil unions or whatever other legal term the government wishes... everyone has the same rights of inheritance, legal decision making for an injured partner, taxation, etc... but leave marriage in the hands of the churches and religious institutions...

    But you will not see support of this from many of the 'gay rights' activists,... because it is not about equal treatment under the law... it is about advancing an agenda

    How can you NOT vote on what your society will and won't recognize as a "right"? Oh, wait, I know. When the people stubbornly refuse to yield to the greater wisdom and morality of leftists, it's better if they're given no say over their own society at all.

    May I remind you, Tardboy, that the nation voted on ALL of our rights when it ratified the Constitution? You might have heard of it.

    Yes, they also included a clause about equal protection.

    How can you apply a right to some people and not others?

    There is an old saying..

    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on whats for supper
