// -That means you're essentially "intolerant" of my "intolerance?" // It is not intolerance to want to prevent the negative treatment of a group of people. Nobody is preventing Christians from practicing their beliefs, but rather preventing Christians from affecting the lives of others. You have a right to your beliefs, but not a right to a society run according to those beliefs or to a society free of people who don't hold your beliefs.

Ive always been amazed by the similarities between the arguments against gay marriage and for slavery and segregation.

Bigot (n)-someone who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion. "So let me get this straight: Because I, an "Evangelical Christian" considers homosexuality to be wrong, I'm a "bigot?" short answer: yes. answer: yeah, actually that's right next to text book definition of bigotry. You condemn the actions of others based on nothing more than your conditioned beliefs as an "evangelical Christian".

Have you read Marx? What Marx wrote and what his followers actually did were often two very different things. To accuse someone of communism is nothing more than an outdated throwback to McCarthyism, and last time I checked, it isn't the 50s anymore.

Thank you, Plainsman, for your support. We all appreciate it! We hope that some day, we'll have the equal rights and protections enjoyed by those who already have them. Until then, We'll be Drag'ing on!

//Assumes facts -- and quite a few of them -- not in evidence. Assumes that there are no paths to equal financial and legal rights outside of re-shaping what marriage has always meant. // If you aren't selling your daughter for a few donkeys or receiving 50 shekels of silver for her rape, then marriage has already been redefined. To further exclude human rights because of religious reasoning goes against the First Amendment, you know, the one that prevents religion from legally impacting those who don't follow it. As far as equal paths to financial and legal rights, did you know that it can cost upwards of $15,000 to have legal documents drawn up to circumvent marriage certificates? I don't think a $50 marriage certificate is equal to $15,000, but who knows, I'm just in Liberal Arts. Maybe I don't understand those maths. How is adding more families to the mix fundamentally challenging families? Is a gay couple getting married going to cause the divorce or straight couples? Nope. Is a gay couple getting married going to prevent a straight couple getting married? Only if they beat them to the courthouse and are in front of them in line at closing time.

Pardon my error. If being gay isn't protected because it is* a choice, then neither should religion be protected; religion is a choice. Science backs up the claim that homosexuality is not a choice, whether or not you choose to believe that.

In any case, you are welcome to come to any Spectrum meetings and meet the people whom are negatively impacted by your beliefs. We are human too, and deserve the same legal rights.
