the fact is, the gays will get what they want (the right to marry) i said this a long time ago and ill say it again.... it just wont happen over night
A lot of people do not like to see that a gay couple can get the same benefits as them... but from what i hear the gays say its not about the benefits really its about being able to "marry"
a civil union was not good enough, they had to push for the next thing...
and thats all well and good but its going to take a while for the Nation(myself included) to accept gay marriage.
Especially when Marriage was defined and for so many people still is defined as the unity of a man and a woman.
And unfortunately for the atheist, marriage started out as a religious thing.... we can''t disregard all history cause it suits some peoples tastes...
In Catholicism, a principle objective of marriage is procreation

The problem with these gay groups is they want it all, they want it now and if they don''t get it they get upset, and honestly its not fair to the rest of the people in the country.
Look at history and look how long it took for Blacks to get equal rights, I think finally we have equal rights for them now which is great, but step back a half a foot and look at history.
The overall point i want to make is, the gays can ASK for anything they want. They should learn to do it in a non aggressive and non violent way. In life experience its amazing how loud the guy with the soft voice of reason is.
